Obama's nightmare: "Tea Party": Who they are and what they want
The Hamburger MorgenPost ^ | October 8, 2013

Posted on 10/08/2013 6:24:23 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

New ideas that appeal to old principles - the "Tea Party" compares their motivations are often those of the "Boston Tea Party". Too much government, too little say - but even there the similarities stop.

For Obama, it will seriously: When to 17 October enters no agreement in budget dispute, the United States is insolvent. Since 1 October, there is no approved budget, the government of the United States is largely closed.

The reason: the U.S. has reached its debt ceiling, but can not set this higher. The culprit is a small group with a big effect: The "Tea Party". This blocks any compromise and calls insistently for the abolition of "Obamacare". Only then would the change be approved.

What is the "Tea Party"?

This fundamentalist protest movement founded just a few weeks after Obama took office entry 2009. She is seen as a right wing Republican . Now owns 50 of the nearly 230 Republicans in the House of Representatives Abgeorneten for "Tea Party" .

The result: the " Tea Party " wing can force majorities. Even now they condemn the Republikanerführer John Boehner to inactivity . He can not make any concessions to Obama's health care reform. A minority seems to have the government in control.

What does "Tea Party" reach ?

From the beginning, there were two clear objectives : Obama overthrow of the throne and the State accept its supremacy. When the U.S. 2009 issues several billion state aid for banks and real estate financing , the newly formed "Tea Party" fought back against it. " Save or Taxes " is their motto . She sees Obama's health care reform , also known as "Obamacare ," as paternalism and economic fiasco.

Your requirement: Lower taxes , less debt , less government . The capitalist movement against " big government " already assumes extreme forms . So she called Obama because of his social policy as "communists" and warns against " enslavement of the whites."

Who's behind this?

The "Tea Party" should now have 41 million supporters . Their most famous face is probably Sarah Palin (49). This was not only governor of Alaska , she ran in 2008 as Vice President. Even the MPs Michele Bachmann ( 57) is associated with the "Tea Party" . The strongly conservative Republican has long been a supporter of unbridled capitalism.

As is the founder Congressman Ron Paul (78). He applied twice to the office of President of the United States. His campaign subsequently served as a model for the movement.

The Boston Tea Party 1773

In 1773, a powerful sense of community was the first settler small groups on American soil long become . However, this was still suppressed by the " grandfather " Great Britain . The Americans were not represented in Parliament , they were allowed a say . For Great Britain, the "New Country " pure land and was not considered independently. As always skurrilere taxes on imported goods to Americans made ​​life difficult for the citizens of the city of Boston contributed some resistance .

On 16 December 1773 , they stormed the ships disguised as Indians to the British " East India Trading Company" and threw three loads of expensive teas board. "No taxation without representation " ( loosely translated : " No taxation without codetermination " ) was their watchword. The event was one of the crucial trigger for the War of Independence of the United States against Great Britain, at 04 July 1776 was sealed with the " Declaration of Independence of the United States of America."

Haunting convinced - Sarah Palin is the figurehead of the protest movement. The 49-year-old Republican also works as a political commentator on "Fox News."

The Bing translation gives a lot of doom and gloom in the first paragraph:
For Obama, it is serious: If no budget settlement occurs until October 17, the United States have gone bankrupt. Since October 1 has no approved budget, the administration of the United States is largely closed. …

This article is brain dead. Ron Paul the founder? No mention of Rick Santelli’s “Lake Michigan Tea Party” rant in Feburary of 2009 - which was featured same day same time simultaneously by Rush Limbaugh and the Drudge Report with Red end of the world headlines - leading into the town halls of early spring 2009?????

That’s the Genesis, at least, of naming the movement and mobilizing the movement that fed off of fear of Obama Care, the Fed, and tapped into conservative anger at Bush’s leftward leanings.

Who is this bozo?

You may wish to minimize the screen and make the width about five inches wide, top to bottom to read this.

It's easy enough to read our founding documents, and understand what the goals were for this nation.  Those who wish to, can read the thoughts expressed by our Founders.

The United States was formed differently than other nations.  It's leaders had lofty goals.  Differences that couldn't be settled during our founding, were given substantial grounds within those documents so that they would be addressed later.

The nation was founded.  It started off with lofty goals.

Man being what he is, found work-arounds for the loftiest of the ideals our Founders included in our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Today our original document is riddled with subterfuge.  We were not established as simply another European Socialist wet dream.  We were established as a nation where men of good concience to escape to, a place where the individual held the power, and the government answered to him.

Along the way rights were spread out to more citizens, women, minorities..., and those things were good.  Those improvements were based on language in the Constitution.  The very document that supported the ending of slavery, is now ridiculed as some outmoded document.

It was not a perfect document, but in the realm of worldly man, it was probably as fine a document as has been devised or even can be devised to establish and control a government.

Today's so-called (Leftist) 'experts' deny this.  They label it consummately flawed, an outmoded document, something that should be discarded and replaced.  Heaven help us if they succeed.

Tea Party members recognize the folly in this.  They have studied the Founding Documents, the men that crafted them, and what it all means.  They know what our Founders were trying to establish.  After much study they heartily agree with them.  They find these document no more out of date today some 237 years after our Founding, and some years less when some of the Founding Documents were actually drafted and officially adopted.

So when people say things like, "Well, you folks thought Social Security was a bad idea too.  Remember that?", we respond that nowhere dies our Constitution make room for such a thing.  And for that reason, we actually support shifting Social Security into a privately held retirement system, without government intervention.  The same goes for Medicare and other lame ideas, that big dictatorial governments adopt, that citizens don't agree with in Constitutional Republics based on Capitalist Free enterprise.

Social Security is going broke.  Medicare and Medicaid are in trouble.  Big government is antithetical to our existence.  It is the holy grail to the Socialist/Marxist cabal, that seeks to turn our nation into a third world hell-hole.  Failures of Communism in Europe, the U. S. S. R., and every where else it has been tried, convince the experts of nothing.  They need to see tens of millions purged again, before they'll accept what Socialist/Communism/Marxism always devolves into.

We don't.

Remember this people, and unite behind us.  Power will be claimed.  It will reside in the people or in the government.  When it resides in the people, the government is held in check.  When it resides in the government, the people will remain in check.

Show us one nation where Communism turned the nation into the power-house the United States is.  Show me one coummunist idea that was incorporated into the United States, that made it better and not weaker, or more subject to destruction.

The Obama team screams at the top of their lungs that the Tea Party folks are anarchists, terrorists, and anything else they can think of to scare the holy hell out of citizens.

And then, to prove it, the Left implements things that are horrific, and blames it all on the Tea Party.

It's sad that our populace doesn't understand all this.  It's sad it doesn't understand the power-play behind ObamaCare.  It's sad it doesn't see the movement of all citizens onto a government health care program, as the way to control citizens from birth to the grave, but that's exactly what it is.

Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Welfare, Unemployment, financial meltdowns as a result of government intervention, it's all a great big con-job by some of history's biggest con-men.

The Tea Party that didn't exist until after the financial melt-down in 2008, is now to blame for it all.  And those who actually participated in causing what took place, are now claiming to be the absolute experts who can fix it, over the objections of Tea Party members.

If we remember nothing else, we should remember the parts in all this, the loudest screamers against the Tea Party played in the 2008 meltdown.

That would go a long way toward revealing who is right now, as more wild cons are foisted off on the American public.

The Tea Party that came along after the melt-down, is not the cause of our problems, and those who were, will be slamming the Tea Party the loudest.

Watch them.  When you think about it, things suddenly become crystal clear.

Of course that's only if clearness of mind is what you want.  If not, you came to the wrong place for enlightenment.

Is it “Who they are?” or is it “Who are they?”

It all boils down to this:

“The Silent Majority is what you call the TEA Party.”

Deal with it.

The only thing that is “new” is THE NEW REPUBLICAN PARTY.

RINO Hunting Season begins 1-1-2014.

BTW, this 2014 RINO hunt has no bag limits, tents or caves - - -

Everyone is blaming these ‘extremists’ for otherwise reasonable republicans acting like raging lunatics.

But if as the polls show the vast majority of voters blame the republicans for this disastrous government shutdown, doesn’t that mean this is suicide for the republicans?

Could they be acting for what they mistakenly think is the good of the country? Naw, nevermind.

"...the founder Congressman Ron Paul (78)."

Ron Paul did NOT found the Tea Party.

If anyone deserves that signature distinction, it's Rick Santelli, who dared Americans to join him in a "Tea Party", in a rant from the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.

Millions answered the call, and the Tea Party was born.

unbridled capitalism

That’s the biggest lie. Capitalism doesn’t run wild. Read Schumpeter and you’ll see that the people who hate capitalism are the buggy whip manufacturers of their era.

Politicians are egotistical losers who appeal to other egotistical losers that they can be counted on to rob their fellow men. The bridle isn’t placed on capitalism, but on people. If the people don’t like it, they get the spur, then the crop and, if they’re really pushing it, the rendering plant.

Nobody bases their opinions on polls except the politicians. Those of us who live in the real world already know that most “official” polls are skewed to make Obama and the Dems look good.
