Attack of the Tea Party Zombies
American Thinker ^ | 5/13/2012 | Clarice Feldman

Posted on 05/13/2012 5:44:23 PM PDT by tentmaker

Readers who heed what the media says would have thought the tea party bitter clingers were dead, so this week's election results must have seemed to them like the attack of the zombies.

The zombies made their appearance known in Wisconsin, Indiana, and Utah.

Less than a year ago a Washington Post blogger contended the tea party was running out of steam, that Senators Olympia Snowe, Dick Lugar and Orrin Hatch looked to easily win re-election against tepid tea party opposition.

lol.....Make no mistake, the Tea Party will be back with a vengeance and a vigor that will be the strongest thus far. We know we are getting a wussy prez, be it Romney or Obama,so the battle will be for both houses. I predict another massive upheaval that will give Conservatives majority and will bend Romneys arm and hold his feet to the fire to uphold Conservative policies. IMHO

The Tea Party seems to be surging everywhere but Pennsylvania. The PA primaries were a dud for anti-establishment conservatives.

Well PA may be late to the party, but I gotta believe they will still make it to the party. It only takes a spark to start a fire!

Mitch McConnell typifies the mainstream Republicans: a wimpy, sneaky dealmaker who loves his senate sinecure, but is unwilling to do the work needed to unseat the nasty Democrats who have the majority.

It isn’t the Tea party, its the sane against the insane.
Listen to Pelosi and Reid, watch as Boehner and Mitch McConnell back down or as Mccain spins around like a top.

The sane are tired of watching our country destroyed by these crazed give away artists.

I’m not a member of the Tea Party, but the more I see who is against them, the more I am for them!

May there be more power, success and victory for the “Tea Party.”

First Bachmann wins the Iowa Straw Poll. Then Romney wins the early count of the Iowa Caucuses, and within a shake of a lamb’s tail Santorum wins in the late count.

Now an FR article predicts that Ron Paul will have the majority of voting delegates from Iowa.

If Paul’s plan to cut 1 TRILLION dollars in year-to-year Federal spending, AND abolish 5 Federal Departments are the main reasons for Iowa Delegates to thaw out their opposition to Paul, then it might later be said that “the way Iowa goes, so goes the Nation.”

BTW, “T” is for Texas, Tampa and those of us who are TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY!”

_____________

Here are some more reasons to vote for Ron Paul in the remaining Primary elections:

1.) It will drive the Liberal Agenda Media (LAM) and their Rove-style political consultants NUTS!

2.) It will deny statistical support to Romney.

3.) It could result in an OPEN Convention in Tampa.

4.) It would irritate the snot out of the GOP-E.

5.) It will put the GOP-E on notice that we think that their RINO Party has done NOTHING since we sent 89 TEA Party men and women to the US Congress in 2010.

6.) An OPEN Convention is our ONLY chance of a successful DUMP ROMNEY campaign.

7.) A superb, true “Dark Horse” Republican Nominee needs an OPEN Convention to replace Romney.

BTW, did I mention the sheer joy of watching the GOP-Endorsers publicly eating crow?

___________________

What the Liberal Agenda Media has never figured out, is that the 2012 National Election will be the last National Election where Campaign topics other than the National Debt will be debated again.

IOW, when the grim reaper of financial reality forces Federal Politicians in “both” parties to pay the US Bond owners before payments to our Entitlement recipients, it will terminate discussion on the main topics that we chatter about so far in 2012.

This National election is all about the money, your grandchildren’s descendant’s money.

Ron Paul is to old and to disliked as being different from what most voters picture a US President to look and sound like to win the Nomination.

HOWEVER, Ron Paul is our last, best chance to have an OPEN Convention in Tampa, and for that alone he deserves our Primary voter support.

Paul has soldiered on through this entire Primary Campaign. Let us help him establish a beachhead on the Shores of Tampa!

My Favorite Dark Horse was R Sc US Senator Jim DeMint, but I have been told by those in the know that Jim will not run for POTUS.

Fortunately, there are many other great potential nominees who would be far more acceptable to us than any of the Primary Candidates so far, but a “Dump Romney” action requires an OPEN Convention.

For those who object to Paul as a Nominee, then treat him as a tired old political soldier who will, with our help, win the Battle to achieve an OPEN Convention in Tampa.

THEN the delegates can win the War, and choose the best Nominee to solve our National Debt Problem.

Remember, this election is all about the money, your grandchildren’s descendant’s money - - - - .

What is the best way that you can use your Primary vote to help the financial future of YOUR descendants?

Quietly, now. Keep in mind Communism never did so well as it did after being declared "dead".

Speak softly, and all that.

People who've been struck by lightning in an open convention have a pretty good record for standing up and accepting the nomination, lol.

People are tired of the same old manipulative control of the conventions -- hell, let 'er rip!

If you’re not pretty much fully on board with the Tea Party you might be on the wrong forum.

Looked to me like the OP was “fully onboard” with the TP agenda, but not a “member”...

Same here... and what does being a “member” even mean?

To: lentulusgracchus; All

If you think about it we, the voters, are systematically being encouraged to not vote, or have our own thoughts on anything that is important to us.

You brought up the example of “ - - - the same old manipulative control of the conventions - - - . “

Involved in your example are a great number of other factors that are used against us, the voters. Here is my partial list of these factors:

1.) Presentation of OPINION polls as FACTS to encourage voters not to “throw their vote away” by voting for a candidate that cannot “win;”

2.) Near absolute control of information presented to the voters by the LAM, or Liberal Agenda Media;

3.) Control by POLITICAL parties of the rules, times and lists of candidates the we voters are allowed to choose from;

4.) Protective, selective and subjective vetting of candidates by the LAM;

5.) Selection by delayed State Primary elections to insure that no more than 4 % of the eligible voters are allowed to choose the Nominee of a given political party;

6.) The pervasive arrogance of the RINO Political Party that if you don’t vote for who WE want you to vote for then you are voting for the other evil party to win.

If this is going to be the last National Election where there is still a possibility that Federal Overspending can be drastically reduced voluntarily, then let us have an OPEN Convention and realistically choose the Nominee who truly has demonstrated BY HIS/HER ACTIONS, that a 30 % cut in ALL Entitlement spending PER YEAR is essential to the financial survival of the United States of America.

BTW, why not start by instituting a 50 % cut per year to all financial support to elected Federal Politicians? Well, at least until they have reduced Federal Overspending to be below the average of the previous 2 years of Federal income.

BTW, BTW, here is a Law that the elected Lawyer/Politicians NEVER learned about in Law School:

WHEN YOUR OUTGO EXCEEDS YOUR INCOME, YOUR UPKEEP WILL BE YOUR DOWNFALL.

Thanks for your thoughtful & kind reply! My main purpose is to take opportunity to share the eternal message of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Dear Friends, The Tea Party Express had an amazing week last
week thanks to all your support and involvement and would like to thank you. 
Everyday our buses traveled to a different city in this great nation rallying
conservatives.  I think you can agree that the Tea Party is answering our
critics and is just as passionate and energized as we were in 2010 and are
poised to have another banner year at the ballot box in 2012.We wanted to share
with you some of the highlights of the last week that were made possible through
your support and...
