The tea party movement has enormous potential power.
The threat to the liberal agenda is obvious, we have common sense and the country’s best interest at heart.
The threat to the right is less obvious. They should- and do fear it too.
The tea party movement can bring an end to the status quo. The end to an era of business as usual at the expense of the citizens.
To explain what I mean by the right: Those who have dominated the political right from the time of Gerald Ford until now.
These are not conservatives. Ronald Reagan being an exception of course.
There are a few solid conservatives, but they are in the minority within the ranks of the right who hold power.
We know who holds power, the likes of John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, Michael Steele etc.
Despite being slaughtered in the last two election cycles at the polls, they hold to the losing proposition that they must adhere to being mired in the muck of the middle ground, that they must be bi-partisan, and that they must forever allow for compromises even to our most sacred principles as lain out by our Forefathers!
The left and their compliant media slyly have encouraged this position for the right as the only reasonable position to take.
This they have willingly complied with. As a result we are bleeding from a thousand cuts instead of dying quickly.
This too plays right into the left’s hands and has enabled them to live by a double standard resulting in a steady increase in their political power.
From filibusters of judicial nominees to watered down, but still liberal socialism plans, on S-chip and prescription drugs entitlement programs, the liberals have won their way.
There is every indication that those in the right still holding power have learned nothing.
There is also every indication that they also believe that they can continue to lead us where we do not wish to go, and to choose a strategically impossible ground from which to fight from.
Many, many people have expressed that the tea party movement should not allow the takeover by the Republican Party as it is. Agreed!
Though we cannot afford to lose to the left again in 2010, likewise we cannot allow a weak and wimpy party to lead us astray because we think we have no other choice! There is another choice. Stand our ground!
We do not have time to build viable third parties as they can only be effective if they too are built solidly- from the ground up.
Many people might disagree, yet look at their history of failure.
The answer lies in changing the leadership of the right.
How do we do this and still fight from a solid position?
We stand our ground. We make them come to us and fight from the position of republican conservative principles once again. They come to us, and stay with us, or fight alone.
This is what must happen, there is no other solution that can work in time.
The largest demographic of people in this country do not need to budge. The polls show that 63% of the country still hold mostly conservative values.
Those that wish to be on the winning team need to come to us, listen, do what we ask of them.
What we ask is what the Founders laid out-to be followed as intended.
We cannot allow our tea party movement to be swallowed up by the current failure of leadership on the right. We must guard well what we have started and organized, and beware of this inevitable attempted coup by the current power within the party, while we continue to scrutinize the left and defend against their radical agenda.
The right needs to get out of the cronyism game of ‘pay to play’ both parties use now to horse trade for votes, money, and for power.
While the elitist’s (on both sides) are busy scratching each others backs, they are crushing the peoples backs- with a burden of massive debt, over regulation, overspending, new taxation, and the taking of our liberty.
The tea party movement has arisen in the nick of time to say ENOUGH!
We now need to stand our ground- and demand that any who seek to be our leaders get on board our train!
