Star Parker urges freedom-lovers to continue fight to restore America
Now, suddenly, the tea party is everybodys whipping boy.
Liberals, in the wake of the election, gloat about what they see as liberalisms return to the mainstream and cheer the end of the Republican extremists.
And, despite the spin, which never stops in Washington, it is not accidental that four prominent tea-party congressmen have been purged from key committee posts by Speaker John Boehner.
So as the Washington establishment cozies up to the mindset that a bloated, debt-ridden America can go on just fine as long as there is political compromise in Washington, here are a few things to think about.
The Economist Intelligence Unit, a sister company of The Economist magazine, publishes each year a quality of life index. They rank 50 countries around the world according to which has the best prospects for the highest quality of life in the upcoming year.
They look at 11 factors, including economic (GDP per capita, GDP growth, inflation) and socio-political (life expectancy, literacy, human rights) considerations.
When the Index was first published in 1988, the United States was No. 1 in the world. This year, the United States has dropped to number 16.
Or consider the Economic Freedom of the World Index, published annually by a consortium of free-market think tanks from around the world.
According to this years report: The United States, long considered the standard bearer for economic freedom among large industrial nations, has experienced a substantial decline in economic freedom during the past decade. From 1980 to 2000, the United States was generally rated the third-freest economy in the world, ranked behind only Hong Kong and Singapore.
In the latest rankings, the United States has now dropped to No. 19 in the world in economic freedom.

Otherwise, we will all toughly hang.
Excuse me, but the Tea Party is stronger now, in fact it is the sole aspect of conservatism now growing.
Dis-information it would seem.
Now: Bring back US jobs.
Politicians and pundits of both major parties are scared to death of the Tea Party movement. IMO, it’s the first real grassroots movement that’s had a major influence on politics since the anti-war movement of the 60’s.
Democrats were caught totally flatfooted in 2010 dealing with the Tea Party. Politicians canceled town hall meetings because they didn’t want to be confronted. For the past two years, Democrats have blamed anything that has gone wrong in this nation on the Tea Party. That has taken a real toll on the brand, but the Tea Party mindset is still out there as strong as ever.
Right now, the Tea Party focus should be on “small ball”, that is getting municipal, county, and state candidates elected. For the next four years, nothing positive is going to happen at the national level. Might as well focus on making positive changes closer to home in areas where the Feds can’t meddle. WI and MI (re unions) are two examples of positive Tea Party influence.
“Liberals gloat about what they see as liberalisms return to the mainstream and cheer the end of the Republican extremists.
Conservatives/patriots/republicans now control 30 states. That’s up from 25 in 2010. Commie rats are being thrown out of state-wide elected offices by the droves. Democrats fascist legislators in the states have lost seats that number in the hundreds.
The conservative juggernaut is forming in the states. What happened in Michigan to defeat the commie unions this week is the beginning of the end for leftists. The next step is for states to pass laws that hinder and stop any movement by the criminal fascist syndicate occupying Washington. That means mobilizing state bureaucracies, law enforcement and the courts to harass every federal bureaucrat who dares to step foot in a state. That includes federal Marxists in black robes.
These are the times to try men’s souls. We must hang tough, and keep our powder dry. Liberty is never easy to win—and it shouldn’t be. That which we get too easy—we value too little.
It is unbelievable to see the Boehner boot lickers attacking the Tea Party, mercilessly.
