Tea Party Maligned

There are only a few things that make me truly angry. Lies about the innocent are chief among them. The decent, hard-working, freedom-loving Americans who dare to raise their voices in protest against injustice are my heroes. And it makes me nauseas when they are maligned by those who seek to control them – the very ones whose policies they are protesting. No one likes a spoiled brat. The national leaders who just rammed socialist health care mandates down our throats and many of their compatriots in the liberal media have revealed their selfish, bratty, bully, true selves as they have unloaded a barrage of attacks on the courageous tea party activists around the nation.

There are only a few things that make me truly angry.

Lies about the innocent are chief among them.

The decent, hard-working, freedom-loving Americans who dare to raise their voices in protest against injustice are my heroes. And it makes me nauseas when they are maligned by those who seek to control them – the very ones whose policies they are protesting.

No one likes a spoiled brat. The national leaders who just rammed socialist health care mandates down our throats and many of their compatriots in the liberal media have revealed their selfish, bratty, bully, true selves as they have unloaded a barrage of attacks on the courageous tea party activists around the nation.

The socialist policies being forced on America are deplorable to most Americans. The liberals in leadership, just like spoiled bullies, want this, they want that - and they want it all right now - oh, and according to their specific dictates. They are the big bullies who rule the block, and they will not be challenged by small town Americans who try to thwart their plans.

This rotten phenomenon is bankrupting our country, and teaching our own children that somebody else is entitled to their lunch money; that the big guys in Washington actually have a right to run their lives; that there is some sort of perverted “social justice” that demands everyone be taken care, without regard to who will pay. But the real sick joke is on those same children: it is our sons and daughters that will have to pay for all of the “stuff.”

If we sit by and do nothing - if we allow this to continue, then ours will be the first generation of Americans led by adults who care more about what they want, than they do about creating a better future for our children. That is despicable.

The Bible teaches us in Proverbs 13:22: “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children.”

Instead, we have saddled our own kids with massive debt the second they are born. If the current government run health care programs actually get off the ground, our children and grandchildren will likely spend their entire lives wallowing in debt - and stuck in a system of broken promises and compromised quality. Face it: when it comes to securing financial stability for our nation’s children, we are a nation of thieves. We should hang our heads in shame. Instead, our leaders slap each other on the back in victorious glee as they slip into their limos and head off in style to plan the next robbery.

So what are tea party activists and other decent Americans to do when they are maligned for standing up for what is right? There’s only one answer: Give them more of what they hate. Take to the streets again and again! Fight back. Don’t let them rob your sons and daughters of another cent. Refuse to let the bullies intimidate you.

The liberal elite and social engineers are trying to silence the cries of decent, hard-working Americans that have had enough. And they are doing it with good old-fashioned name-calling. It’s the oldest, dirtiest, laziest trick in the book: call someone you don’t like a racist, a sexist or a hot-head and you’ve effectively discredited them. The bullies have taken your children’s future, and now they want to take your dignity and your voice. But don’t let them.

As smart Americans across the land are spending their hard-earned money to hire accountants to fill out stupid, complex tax forms that no one can understand, it’s time to take to the streets. As moms and dads are writing out those huge tax checks and sending them off to God-knows-who in Washington to do God-knows-what with, it’s time to take to the streets.

Peaceful assembly comprised of very loud and vocal protests have long been successful methods in this country for securing civil rights for the oppressed and downtrodden. Well, our kids are the oppressed. Their future has been trampled. Take to the streets!

And take other people with you. The great tea party phenomenon that is sweeping our nation provides our greatest hope. And the millions who are patriotically protesting must also take their action into the voting booths this fall. So take to the streets, take your friends and neighbors and co workers with you, and then lead them all into those voting booths in November. Let’s cram the polls with citizens who will vote to protect our children and the American way.

It’s time to organize, to march, to vote them out and whop the bullies once and for all. It’s the only way to keep them from robbing our kids blind.
