Tea party leaders would welcome meeting Obama
World Net Daily ^ | April 29, '09 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 04/29/2009 5:39:41 PM PDT by JSDude1

Leaders of a nationwide "tea party" movement that saw an estimated 1 million people gather at hundreds of locations across the United States on Tax Day to protest not just taxes but the sudden rampant spending in Washington say they have accepted an invitation from President Obama to meet.

The national leadership team of the Nationwide Tea Party coalition confirmed members

Of course if we don't like what these so called "leaders" say then we don't have to abide by that; that's what's great about this movement it "by-and-large" made up of ordinary Americans, and it truely is grass roots! However I applaud them, and would welcome it too (just don't get suckered by 'the one'..).

Don't get suckered by Obama's invitation to personally meet.

US Constitution is pretty easy reading, and easy to follow as well... if its not written in that 218-year document, then the US Government cannot do it.

If there is one idea that I hope the 'tea party leaders' can make Obama understand, it should be this.

But I think that Obama will try and charm the 'leaders' to agree to his health-care plan and social security plan, when what should be address is how the US Constitution does not allow either one.

Woa...wait just a gosh darn minute here. Today President Obama insulted those good Americans who participated in the “Tea Parties”. And now he offers to meet with them?

Let me guess, he received so many tea bags he doesn’t know what to do with it all so he’s having a tea party of his own.

Ask him all of the damning questions and get it all on video.
Then..
Put it all on YouTube.

Let us hope that we do not get a repeat of Chamberlain’s peace in our time concession.

If Obama is willing to meet with these people who are basically Rush Limbaugh radio listeners and conservatives what's in it for him? How is this going to benefit OBAMA? That's what this is all about. Never trust democrats and especially one who now has a proven history of lying and deceiving!

If Obama truly wants to meet and seriously discuss things only meet him on our terms or else it will be a useless meeting. Akin to 100 million in budget cuts. Useless!

Wait... I thought the WH assured us that Obama hadn’t heard of the tea parties? And not to mention, his cronies on CNN, MSNBC and The Daily Show mocking the events? Why does he want to meet now?

Oh, is it because 2010 is going to be a year of reckoning on the Democrats for their irresponsible spending spree? I think so!

What Tea Party organizers?

I’ve met eight in the Philadelphia area alone!

I don’t speak for them, and they don’t speak for me.

This reeks of triangulation, Bubba-style.

You NAILED it! This movement is the largest grass roots movement in history and no one or few persons may lay claim to owning it. We the people own this movement and I say, let’s keep it that way for now. We will decide if and who someone will be a leader.

Frankly, there’s NOTHING to “discuss”. Nothing these people say is going to matter to him...the spending isn’t going to stop, bailouts will continue. We are on the fast track to socialism and the train has already left the station.

I DIDN’T “SUPPORT” ANY TEA PARTY “LEADER.” ALL OF THE OFFENSIVE BILLS, ACTIONS, LEGISLATION ENACTED BY THE DEMOCRATS THIS YEAR MUST BE TAKEN BACK. I WON’T NEGOTIATE UNTIL MY CONDITIONS ARE MET. THAT’S FINAL. HERE IS MY TEA PARTY FLYER:

TENTH AMENDMENT: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the
Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the
states respectively, or to the people.”
The Federal government is overstepping its Constitutional authority and
centralizing power in Washington DC. The goal of our Republic is to
enable free people to live peacefully together. The goal of
centralization is to RULE. Decentralization fosters diversity.
Centralized economies are not efficient and result in poverty for all
but a few ruling elite. Centralization of social services increases
government intrusion into individual lives and pits competing
demographic populations against each other.
In the name of “safety” or “health” the government is terrorizing
citizens with exaggerated statistics and stripping us of our liberty.
TO REGAIN OUR LIBERTY AND RESTORE OUR REPUBLIC WE MUST DEMAND VOTER ID
IN ALL ELECTIONS AND WE MUST DEFEAT PROPOSALS SUCH AS THE FOLLOWING:
SOCIALIST HEALTHCARE. It’s not as good as what we’ve got. Cancer
patients live longer here, treatment quicker, etc. Also, bill includes
a national DATABASE OF ALL YOUR PERSONAL HISTORY which can be accessed
by state, federal and other government authorities to deny you a gun, a
drivers license, or anything else they decide.
CO2 CAP & TRADE. Carbon Dioxide is not harmful to the planet or people,
but it will cost YOU $1,800+ PER YEAR in gas and electric bills and
increase costs for everything you buy. Cap & trade will destroy
industry in the US. India and China will not be subject to the same
rules. We may be running out of oil but we have enough of our own until
we run out and we have plenty of gas and coal. DRILL NOW! [See
Greenhouse Misconceptions, Tom Kondis; The Great Global Warming Hoax?
James A. Peden; Climate Science: Is it currently designed to answer
questions? Richard S. Lindzen]
UN TREATIES. No to Law of Sea Treaty which will give the UN CONTROL OF
THE US NAVY. Treaties for children and women will trump our federal and
state legal systems, so that OUR LAWS CONFORM TO THE CORRUPT UN.
AMNESTY to millions of illegal aliens. We can’t afford their medical
care and education. The purpose for pushing these proposals at this
time is a partisan attempt to ensure a Democratic majority in government
for a long time.
CARD CHECK DOES AWAY WITH SECRET BALLOTS IN UNION ELECTIONS. Also
mandates that government appointed mediators write contracts. E-VERIFY
of citizenship status was DEFEATED by the Democrats.
GUN CONTROL. AMERICANS own guns now and forever. The Left lies about
the statistics. The Left doesn’t want citizens to have guns because
DEFENSELESS CITIZENS ARE EASIER TO MANIPULATE. Soros & Rebecca Peters
have disarmed the EU, the UK and the Aussies. THEY ARE NOT GOING TO
DISARM AMERICANS!
BAILOUTS. All BAILOUTS ARE TRANSFERS [THEFT] OF TAXPAYER MONEY to give
to someone else. History has shown that when an economic bubble bursts
the best government can do is lower taxes and reduce spending. The
unbelievable “stimulus” packages will drive us to a second Great
Depression. Keynes economic theories are wrong. The Austrian
economists are right.
CYBERSECURITY ACT. Gives the federal government unprecedented power
over the Internet without necessarily improving security. One provision
gives the COMMERCE DEPARTMENT ABSOLUTE, NON-EMERGENCY ACCESS TO “ALL
RELEVANT DATA” without any privacy safeguards like standards or judicial
review. Another provision mandates a study of the feasibility of an
identity management and authentication program.
DURBIN DOCTRINE. Gives the FCC unfettered authority to regulate the
airwaves any way they please. The authorizing authority of the airwaves
is the FIRST AMENDMENT. The Fairness Doctrine was an infringement upon
the free speech and so is this.
ACORN CENSUS TAKERS. Association of Community Organizations for Reform
Now is a partisan organization and should not be allowed any authority
in the voting procedure in any precinct in the country.
NAIS (Nat’l Animal ID System). EVERY HORSE, COW, PIG, CHICKEN, and GOAT
will be tagged at $3-$20 EACH. Failure to register is $1,000 per day in
fines. This will put many small farmers out of business and increase
your groceries.
GIVE (Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education) Passed by
House, HR 1388 would require the US government to develop a plan to
implement a “mandatory service requirement for all able young people.”
(BROWNSHIRTS?)
FOOD SAFETY MODERNIZATION ACT OF 2009. HR 875 could herald the death of
farmers markets, most CSAs, farmstands and small family farms. YOUR
BACKYARD GARDEN IS NOT EXEMPT.
All opinions expressed are mine. Paid for by me.
