We can refuse to buy products from businesses that fight Tea Party candidates and we can donate to Tea Party candidates. And get out the vote!!
iDrive sets up much easier and have pleasant online staffers.
iDrive currently a sponsor on Limbaugh.
That’s the best rule.
I already avoid GE due to their collusion w/the gov’t to get rid of cheap lightbulbs (incandescants).
The businesses against the Tea Party are probably those who like the pay-to-play circle of gov’t blackmail and market-fixing.
The “Business Roundtable” list of “members” looks like a “Whose-Who” of “Crony Captialists”:
The Gopes are really getting their panties in a bunch, to use expression.
It’s not good or funny though.
“they argue that conservative lawmakers have erred in their tactics...”
This is their main claim, that their animosity is purelynpragmatic.
But next time anyone says that, just ask if President Romney agrees?
People should call up Gope radio shows and say, “we need to run the most conservative candidate there is who can win. — and President Romney agreees.
Bottom line, Tea Party wins elections, Gope loses.
Tea Party declares war on dirty liars
In those days, big shots in Congress hated Arnold for much the same reasons establishment Republicans can't stand Sarah Palin today.
Best source for Arnold's history can be found in several Kenneth Roberts historical novels and in Willard Randall's 668 page biography titled "Benedict Arnold, Patriot anf Traitor."
They can join the Rats who will pick their pockets clean.
The problem with these “business” people is that they just want to increase their bottom line short-term, so they can get bonuses and exercise their stock options.
They don’t give a damn about their companies in the long-term, or the nation’s future.
As for me, i will vote for the tea party candidates, i have heard of the chamber of commerce most of my life but really don,t even know what they do.
Are they just like the unions? making a bunch jobs and money for themselves by organizing and controlling every one else?
The TEA Party ain’t the welfare crowd, we’re the makers. We have the money to choose where it is spent.
Ok. Let’s get together a list.
The holiday season approaches.
Let's say you were a small company making cheap light bulbs, well you couldn't do it because of EPA regs, OTOH GE can afford a plant in China to make more expensive CFR bulbs. Who do you think benefits and who is hurt by big gvt in that scenario ?
They may have bucks, we have votes.
These “big businesses” are only interested in themselves and playing nice with the liberals. They are not on the same team with us.
The Dems and GOPe promise these pigs MORE govt spending in return for contributions.
Tea Party politicians should promise them LESS CUTS in government spending for contributions.
The present level of spending just can’t be continued. Cuts have to be made. The biggest impediment to cuts is the business and media support for politicians who support raiding the economy to increase consumer spending.
tea party adherents precipitated a governmental crisis that zapped consumer and business confidence, raised uncertainty and exerted a major drag on economic growth.
Here goes the myth making of the MSM and GOPe. There was no scorched-earth tactic. The TEA Party had several good fallback positions. It was the GOPe, Democrat-controlled Senate and Pres. Obama that refused to deal.
The crisis was imaginary and a political construct designed by Obama and the Democrats to maximize pain and uncertainty. It was Obama and the Democrats that talked down the economy, raised uncertainty and made a standard budget debate into a mess.
The final item is going to be a big talking point and it is a myth that we need to destroy right now. What drag on the economy?
Don't let them get away with these lies. The biggest drag on the economy is fiscal policy that: 1. distorts incentives via taxation and subsidies; 2. spends more than we get in tax receipts; 3. misallocates capital in the productive economy; and 4. wastes money in the public sector on political pork projects.
The proper response is to: 1. end the distortions via mandates (ethanol, etc.), bureaucratic overreach (rain water and CO2 as pollutants?), and taxation/subsidies (simplify the tax code & reduce tax burdens on productive activities); 2. Balance the budget (Ryan's plan is a training wheels program, but if that's what you can pass, then pass that and cut again when we've got a majority or a President); 3. reduce burdensome regulations on industry (jobs, jobs, jobs); and 4. Attack the basic waste we see in government (Obama had to work to make Americans miserable at 90% government, that proves we can reduce discretionary spending immediately) and rein in entitlements (SS reform, Medicare and Medicaid etc.)
There's been an explosion in the "disabled" and that needs to stop. We need to win the WH and use the Commerce Clause aggressively to end non-compete laws at the state and local level. It can be done, but you have to win. That means working with RINOs and Democrats on areas of agreement.
This situation is simply another in a long list of mythology about the tea party supporters that is being used to court business donors and savage Dem opposition. When a party has a propaganda engine of the size and viciousness that the Dem party has, the truth is irrelevant. Business will face gross revenue pressures because a nation that is on the dole is not a nation of good customers. The working people of America, who comprise tea party supporters, is losing income to the socialist fed govt. That weakens bus revenues.
I just received a short briefing from a bus specialist who reports a year-over-year decline of about 20-30 percent in retail sales of home maintenance products in a very blue-state are of the US. This is a repeat of the prior year’s declines and reflects economic pressures that should not exist in the US. There should be strong economic growth after the disastrous declines of a few years ago. This country is in seriously bad shape. Young people who don’t know what normal American prosperity is are facing mediocre jobs opportunities and strained prospects for economic success. The situation is bad and needlessly so. Tea party principles are counter that situation—that needs to be made clear and repeated continuously.
