Skip to comments.2014: The Resurgence of the Tea Party
Posted on 01/05/2014 3:28:07 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
It is not looking good for the Tea Party and our efforts to restore America in 2014. The Obama Administration, mainstream media, major liberal advocacy groups and the GOP establishment have launched an extremely well-funded war against us. http://bit.ly/1cVTDpW
So, how do we compete?
Answer: We do what we did in 2010. The Bible says one will put a thousand to flight, but two will put 10,000 to flight. (Deut. 32:30) In other words, when we are united our power and effectiveness increases exponentially. The 2010 Republican sweep of the elections driven by the Tea Party confirms this truth.
Without mainstream media support, We The People used the resources at our disposal (internet, talk radio, social networks and a single minded purpose) to spread the word which inspired 1.7 million patriots to show up for a rally in DC. Incredible. Absolutely amazing!
Well patriots, it is time for us to work together again. In a single-minded effort, We The People must unite as an army fighting side-by-side determined to repeal Obamacare.
Obama said repealing Obamacare ain't happenin' on his watch. The GOP and many political pundits agree.
Meanwhile, Obamacare is wreaking havoc on America. I refuse to believe that the American people will sheepishly allow this evil and destructive behemoth, pushed on us via Obama lies and dirty political tricks, to stand.
Patriots, 2014 has to be our all hands on deck effort; getting as many conservatives as possible elected to the House and Senate; exploiting every opportunity to push back against the full implementation of Obamacare via lawsuits and more.
Also crucially important, we must stand by our Tea Party warriors; Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Sarah Palin and others. Courageously enduring unimaginable pressures from the GOP and the left, this is not the time to nitpick our generals for being less than perfect. We are at war!
In the early years of the Tea Party, I was blown away by the brilliant minds I encountered at rallies across America while touring on Tea Party Express. Patriots wrote books, conceived strategies, organized, wrote songs and more; all intended to take back America. We need that same intense creativity and energy activated to repeal Obamacare; stopping Obama's vowed insidious fundamental transformation of our great country.
Our unified desire to repeal the monstrous Obamacare must be the catalyst for rejuvenating the early passion, enthusiasm and determination of the Tea Party. This is it folks, 2014 is the year of the battle to end all battles for America as intended by our Founding Fathers.
As for the odds, the traitorous GOP, the left and big money being against us, such has always been the case. The only thing different about the 2014 election is that establishment Republicans are no longer hiding their disdain for the Tea Party. Therefore, if we do what we did in 2010, We The People will defeat them again in 2014.
One last point. From its beginning, I believe the Tea Party was divinely inspired. How else can you explain mega millions of Americans becoming mobilized to act because of one man, Rick Santelli ranting about the size, irresponsibility and tyranny of out-of-control big government. Thus, I believe we have righteousness (the moral high Ground) and God on our side. If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31) This truth gives me peace and my spirit to remain upbeat and confident.
Patriots, your lives have been prepared for such a time as this. The Tea Party is the miracle cure destine to eradicate this evil cancerous tumor known as Obamacare, aggressively eating away at the soul of what it means to be an American. 2014 is the year we heal our land.
Any candidate allied with the TEA party has my support, but, honestly, I think that the ballot box has been padded, stolen, manipulated, and concealed from the public eye. Armed conflict or peaceful separation are the only viable solutions, IMHO.
Well, to use that famous quote . . .let’s git er done!
Is this becks august restore america rally. if so i was there.
there were people trying to get on the metro and never made it.
it took me 3 and i got there 30 min before end of rally.
MSM tried to say there was a couple tens of thousands. bull.
3 = 3hours
When a large, clumsy man (the establishment) takes a swing at a small, agile man (The TEA Party), the smaller man can duck, step behind him while he’s off-balance, and land a well-paced kick to the back of the knee that will bring him down, hard. Go read “The Art Of War”. It will explain this strategy much better than I can.
Not the Tea Party.
Not everyone agrees with that acronym. High taxes are only one of the grievances that gave rise to the Tea Party. There are dozens more.
A few clever souls came up with the Taxed Enough Already acronym early on, and many became convinced that that was all the movement was about. Well, it isn't. Not by a long shot.
Agreed. There are really no other viable options.
You know, it's too bad we can't convince all the liberals, communists, socialists and progressives to live in the western most states and then build a huge fence/wall so they can't get out. Then let them govern themselves into oblivion.
Related Thread JimRob's called for a 10,000,000 man march on Washington DC -- an American Spring! Let's make it happen!
When is the March? I was there for the original one, ready to go again.
Right you are, Neo, and that's why the Tea Party has lost support. Too many early participants have correctly observed that the war for America has escalated, and that peaceful rallies in the park, email campaigns, and GOTV efforts, are no longer effective against the rapidly solidifying totalitarianism we see occurring.
I said well over a year ago on this site, that the Tea Party needed to take the fight to the next level. We needed to be organizing and executing large and widespread civil disobedience events. Not violence, mind you, but organized and purposeful civil disobedience. There is a difference.
I said then, that we had precious little time in which to do this, as the game was rapidly changing, and that if we dragged our feet, the time would come where such acts would be ineffective. I think we've just about reached that point.
It's apparent that we're being frozen out of the political process by both parties. They've locked arms against us, and will do everything in their power to crush our dissent. They've also got plans afoot to replace us with tens of millions of newly documented Democrat voters, through amnesty.
Once that's passed, all hope for representation via the political process is gone for good. What little leverage we did have in the political arena will be gone in an instant.
The point is, we're not keeping up in this escalating war. We're being pounded to death by the enemy because we won't bring up the heavy artillery and roll out the bombers. We're being decimated by these people, yet most on our side are still yapping about elections and congressional coalitions. Excuse my French, but WTF,O?
I think the handwriting on the wall is abundantly clear. We've got to take drastic action, and on a (nearly) unprecedented scale to get back into the fight.
God always uses the Remnant to accomplish his will.
The TEA Party support has waned due to the Media and the opposition of our own party, the Republicans!
We have no party support for lower taxes or smaller Government as both parties support both. They are for control and big Government.
Not sure just how to proceed from here when both parties are against the public - does that mean a revolution to save the country?
If this continues for another few years, it will be unsalvageable. So...do Democrats win and the country loses or do the Republicans win and the country loses?
Opposition isn't what's killing the Tea Party. The movement was born to oppose the forces that are destroying America. It's their very purpose, so no, that's not the reason.
The reason interest has waned, is because people wanted results, and got speeches instead. They wanted to go to war against the evil that is killing this nation, and they got rallies in the park instead. They dutifully showed up to meetings, ready to participate in the restoration of their once magnificent country, and they got lectured to by budding politicians instead.
In short, Americans across the country were fired up to follow the example of those brave patriots at the Boston Tea Party. They were ready to do whatever it took to take back their country, but little was accomplished, except making a lot of noise.
I myself stopped going to my local Tea Party meetings when I realized that the organizers weren't prepared to take our protest to a level that would make real progress toward our stated goals.
In my opinion, all of that incredible energy was wasted. A real movement would have more resembled what we saw in Egypt this last summer. Those people dropped everything and rushed to their capitol city. They came in the millions, and stayed as long as it took. They stood their ground and braved real injury for doing so. They loved their country too much to let the radicals take it away from them, and they were willing to suffer real pain to see things their way.
Until we love our country as much as the Egyptians love theirs, and are willing to set aside our comfort and even our incomes to stand in protest, then nothing will change.
That is the September, 2009 March, I believe. I was there.
