The TEA Party movement is all about smaller, more representative government. We are fed up with our unresponsive, ever expanding and totally out of control BIG government.
We feel our elected officials and politicians of both political parties have failed us and no longer represent our interests or the country we love, and no longer deserve our support. The Democrat party is totally lost to Marxism and the Republican party is not far behind. I've heard thousands of people saying it's time to kick them ALL out!
Rebellion is brewing!
If we the members of the grassroots TEA Party movement could nominate a candidate for president, who would it be?
Well, obviously, it should not be a leading member of either of the two major political parties that have failed us so miserably that we're now on the brink of rebellion. No beltway insiders please. No next in line it's my turn candidates. No try again candidates. No media's choice candidates. No slick-haired, smooth talking, two-faced political hacks. Big government, big spending northeastern moderates need not apply.
Time for a fresh face. Time for someone who walks the walk as well as talks the talk. Someone who actually believes in America, believes in small government, believes in freedom, believes the people can and will fend for themselves and do not need or want a government nanny.
Time for an outsider. Time for an outcast. Someone who is not contaminated with Washington politics as usual. Someone with a record of standing up for individual rights, smaller government, smaller taxes, traditional American values, national pride, national defense. Someone who speaks from the heart and connects with we the people by speaking the truth and by truly representing our individual interests and individual freedoms.
Enough with Marxism! We need someone who will say No to more BIG government programs! Say NO to socialist BIG government health care systems! NO to BIG government takeover of private enterprise! NO to crippling BIG government energy boondoggles! NO to global warming hoaxes! NO to BIG spending, BIG taxes, BIG government!
But YES to American individuality, American freedom, American resourcefulness, American independence and the American can do spirit! And YES to American pride, patriotism and national defense!
And YES to good old American know how!
It's good to be American! It's good to be FREE!
Drill baby drill!
Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint, Jeff Sessions, Michelle Bachman, Haley Barbour all come to mind.
I am VERY curious to see the answers to this question. Maybe Fred, but I suspect the clear answer will be SP.
Palin/Thompson or DeMint
Hands down - SARAH PALIN!!
Palin/Bachman or Palin/Barbour
Hunter/DeMint 2012. Accept no substitutes.
Palin/DeMint or vice versa. Duncan Hunter Secretary of Defense.
Is there any question? Sarah will lead the TEA Party to victory in 2012.
Actually, put Duncan Hunter in charge of Homeland Security.
Sarah Palin and Janice Rogers Brown.
Me. HAHAHA, just kidding.
