CNS News ^ | 8/2/11 | Nicholas Ballasy

Posted on 08/02/2011 10:36:27 AM PDT by Nachum

(CNSNews.com) – Congressman Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) has claimed that "Tea Partiers" have enacted a "plan to dismantle the American government" and in the process, the country has lost its "moral compass."

"These ‘Tea Partiers,’ as willing conspirators with their so-called leadership have enacted on a plan to dismantle the American government and in the process, we have lost our moral compass," said Johnson when speaking with the Congressional Out of Poverty Caucus last week.

These Progressives all seem to suffer from the same malady of political projection, accusing other people of doing exactly what they’re up to.

It’s a shame that they’ll get away with it since many of their constituents are as unhealthy and subversive as they are.

IMHO

No; not to dismantle the Government at all. We just want what the Constitution provides; not a home for all the Union dead-beats and beaurocracy and Regulatory Schemes and Czars that are TOTALLY beyond the provisions in the U.S. Constitution. We also would dismantle the IRS and every other “oversight” organization, that is funded by confiscation of earnings of people who actually do PRODUCTIVE work in this society. NO MORE FREE-RIDERS, and that includes non-Citizens.

Wrong Hank. The plan was to dismantle the government and reassemble it on Guam but we decided it might capsize the island.

Sounds like an excellent idea. Doesn't this idiot realize that most Americans agree with this concept?

I'll take a guess and say none of them live in his district.

Whats sad is I’m only hearing Palin and Bachmann defending the Tea Party. I have no problems with strong women leaders, but have all the men in DC lost their balls????

Democrats haven't had a moral compass for decades.

Annals of Congress, House of Representatives, 3rd Congress, 1st Session, page 170 (1794-01-10)
The Annals summarize speeches in the third person, with the actual text of Madison’s quote as follows: “Mr. Madison wished to relieve the sufferers, but was afraid of establishing a dangerous precedent, which might hereafter be perverted to the countenance of purposes very different from those of charity. He acknowledged, for his own part, that he could not undertake to lay his finger on that article in the Federal Constitution which granted a right of Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.” The expense in question was for French refugees from the Haitian Revolution.

". . . That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. . . "

Have we forgotten so soon??

The greatness of our Nation lies in the Freedom of it's people, not it's government. Our government has gone from the protector of that freedom to it's destroyer.

IOW, damn right you jackwagon. And you'd better get on board with it or you will be held accountable as the traitor you so obviously are.

We should be so lucky! how about this instead an immediate 75% income tax withholding on all government employees and check recipients everywhere and all union members since they are all so fond of government let them pass their funny money around to each other and leave the rest of us alone. Maybe a 10% sales type tax to fund the legitimate functions of government.

Yes. AND he accurately represents the viewpoints of his electorate. For the most part black Democrats who look at government as a means to give them whitey's hard earned dollars to which they (johnson voters) feel a deep sense of entitlement. If the government's plunder and squander method were stopped these lazy worthless deadbeats would have to actually WORK for a living, and they just don't want to do that. As long as they can get their beer, dope, cigarrette and lotto ticket money without turning a finger to work, why work?

It’s easy to laugh at many of these idiots, but do not make the mistake of dismissing their choice of language. The descriptive words they use - ever more frequently in common with one another - tend to telegraph both strategy and intentionality toward those they consider their enemies (that would be us). A recent trend has been to employ aggressive and even violent imagery (”cult”, “hostage-takers”, “terrorists”) toward Tea Party members, and that is no accident.
