A SECOND WAVE: TEA PARTY LEADER SAYS 'YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING YET'
BREITBART ^ | December 12, 2012 | MATTHEW BOYLE

Posted on 12/12/2012 7:16:47 PM PST by SaveOurRepublicFromTyranny

Todd Cefaratti, the president of TheTeaParty.net, has a message for Republicans and Democrats alike: “This is just the beginning. If you think the tea party’s dead, you ain’t seen nothing yet.”

At a press conference inside the Capitol Hill Club in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday afternoon, Cefarratti’s organization and several House Republicans joined with Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul to decry House GOP leadership considering capitulating to Democratic efforts to raise taxes during the fiscal cliff negotiations.

“Paul then rattled off a short list of what he considers wasteful Washington spending that needs to be eliminated before any talk of new revenue – or taxes – takes place. ‘Come to me when you’ve gotten rid of the $3 million you spent last year to watch monkeys on methamphetamine,’ Paul said. ‘Come to me when you get rid of the $300,000 you spent last year developing a robotic squirrel to see if a rattlesnake will strike a robotic squirrel that’s not wagging its tail – apparently they couldn’t get any real squirrels to volunteer and not wag their tails. They spent nearly a half a million dollars developing a ‘menu for Mars.’ If you don’t have a job and you’re looking for a job, this is a good one: You get to go to Hawaii, you have to like food, and you sit around for a week and you think of things you’d like to eat if you were on Mars. There’s also a $5,000 fee you get paid as well. Interestingly enough, after all of that, they think pizza would be good on Mars.’”

Personally, I think pizza is fgood anywhere. That is a given. Spending quality time in Hawaii to figure that out at taxpayer expense? Ridiculous.

These lists of ridiculous wasteful spending are cute, but even at the $300M level, they’re not going to fix the problem.

Here’s my list:

Cut the EPA by 90%
Cut HHS by 80%
Overturn Obamacare
Cut the Dept. of Education, because it’s NOT a Federal responsibility.
Cut the Dept. of the Interior by 50%
Cut the Dept. of Commerce by 50%
Enact Medicare & Medicaid Reform for those under 50.
Enact Tort Reform so Doc’s aren’t performing defensive medicine.
Allow cross-state competition for Health Ins.
Enact Social Security Reform, and allow ELECTIVE private accounts.
(politicians don’t like this because SSI currently feeds the General Fund, and contributes to the amount available for them to WASTE on ANYTHING!........There is NO “LockBox”!)
Privatize the TSA.

Of all the...

I thought these people were so concerned about cruelty to animals. Hypocrites as usual.

I got way out of my bubble tonight and attended my neice’s Christmas Choir Concert, Leander, Texas, reddest city in the
reddest county of TX, and let me tell you diversity is here, people. I could see where none of the parents would think Mittens anything but an alien. Like we do.

But they were all conservative but didn’t see that voting that way would benefit them in the long run.

We are not going to reach these voters with any more pasty white guys. TEA needs to color up even more, now that the content of one’s character is REALLY trumped by the color of one’s skin.

A word of warning everyone...

Make sure that whatever person/people start leading the parade under the “Tea Party” banner ARE IN FACT CONSERVATIVE and NOT GOP PLANTS.

It’s time for people to start paying serious attention and it’s time to root out ‘Tea Party “Leaders” that are not who and what they appear to be.

I’m not saying this guy is a plant. Not at all. I’m just saying don’t get sucked in to a psyop campaign like many did in the primaries.

PAY ATTENTION!

The Republicans did not regain a majority in the House because of anything that John Boehner did. They won it in spite of him. And they lost it in 2006 in large part because of him. Why on earth should he be Speaker and the beneficiary of the work of conservatives? He needs to go. Yesterday.

Not an excuse.

Your argument is invalid: Willard lost.

The party is far more responsible for running candidates who can win and whom the party's grass roots find acceptable than the party's voters are for voting for whoever the party's candidate happens to be.

That's reality. Either accept it, or keep on losing. Your choice.

EPA 90%? Why not totally eliminate It? You forgot the so called “Dept. of Energy,” another useless federal agency. Why would anyone send one dollar to Washington to get 30-40 cents in “services” and just to employ a bureaucrat?

” TEA needs to color up even more, now that the content of one’s character is REALLY trumped by the color of one’s skin.”

Save yourself the trouble and just vote Dem now. Personally I refuse to be a part of any movement that adopts that idea or philosophy.

You want a country ‘won’ or ‘built’ on that sand? You are welcome to it. If we cannot convince whites/blacks redspurplesgreens of the correctness of our ideas, I see no point in becoming what we hate just to ‘win’. Because we will have won as Liberals.

Timing is everything and the Tea Party could have made the difference. No candidate is ever perfect enough and it will be dang near impossible to recover America after another four years of Obama's unchallenged socialist agenda. Fair-weather friends always have an excuse why didn't do something or just plain didn't show up. Didn't like the candidates...then run others or run yourself. Democrats NEVER give up and incrementally, they put their agenda first and use the people they need to in order to get the job done.

The Tea Party could have made the difference between freedom and serfdom...and they chose to sit out. How many? Many three million? Boy, when are they going to get really excited about something else next time? When we get to keep 10% of our wages, we are "allowed" to pray only in our homes, and we have to bow before animals who are "more equal" than us? They are more like "Late to the Party". At this rate, America, as we knew it, is over.

This is just more Amnesty Liberal spin. Howard Dean just said this same thing earlier this week

The GOP will lose worse in 2016 if they pander to minorities. The GOP needs to maintain their base...and dump the Kumbaya multi-ethnic nonsense

Admittedly, this is an “If I were king” scenario.

New Charter’s and Staff are key.

We don’t want to create the impression that folks are free to pollute.

The Energy Dept. would be redirected to SUPPORT energy production.
Especially in developing Nuclear Power Plant designs.
The objective would be to have 2 approved designs, which utilities would be able to deploy across the country.

They would also work WITH EPA to address waste disposal methods.
There are several technologically safe methods, and it has always been an issue of political will.
Folks opposed to nuclear energy are not willing to sign up to any disposal method, as that would undermine their opposition to the source.

“Because the GOP ran Willard.”

That’s exactly right. Their intent was to take the wind out of the sails of the conservatives, but while maintaining their own power.

I disagree.

The Tea Party may be the key.

Buy American, and support Tea Parties.

If the GOP goes along, great. If not, then replace them.

Now.
