Jobs Matter

A New (Overdue) Direction For Washington!

We believe that Rob McKenna is the right person to lead Washington state government in a new direction and that the Tea Party movement will unite behind his candidacy!

Allowing the conditions for creation of new jobs for our state is an essential part of what needs to be done and those jobs will not materialize following the liberal-progressive model of growing government and burdening business through over-regulation!

Jobs Matter

A New Direction for Washington

Big government stifles job creation. Washington State has followed that path for too long.

We believe that the leadership, experience, and values of Rob McKenna will allow for the conditions to allow businesses to create jobs here in the Evergreen State! We also have faith that the Tea Party movement will unite to support his candidacy.

Righting Our Consent Newsletter

Our great country has its roots in revolution against government without representation.  The people did not consent to most of what they were being subjected to, which amounted to a constant and increasing oppression of freedom and man’s unalienable rights. Eventually they declared their independence from the conditions they found intolerable.  They in effect righted their consent in their governance.

Find out what traditional Americans are doing to right their consent.  Knowing our principles and fighting for them is a duty we cannot afford to ignore with the liberal assault on who we are and what we believe as a country.

Arbitrary Laws Must Not Stand

“’Tis a Mistake to think this Fault [tyranny] is proper only to Monarchies; other Forms of Government are liable to it, as well as that. For where-ever the Power that is put in any hands for the Government of the People, and the Preservation of their Properties, is applied to other ends, and made use of to impoverish, harass, or subdue them to the Arbitrary and Irregular Commands of those that have it: There it presently becomes Tyranny, whether those that thus use it are one or many.” –John Locke

Shortly after riding into office in 2009 on a blank slate, where many a voter had interpreted his vague, albeit exciting sounding platitudes of “hope and change” to be their own hopes and vision of changes, Obama and his collectivist friends “hit the ground running” as he had indicated to his allies he would during his campaign.

Squarely in their target sights was the American health care insurance system, which had been prepped for attack during the campaign as an uncaring, and overly costly system, that was stunting economic growth, failing the people, and in need of major reform.

This was merely a cover lie for the plan to fundamentally change us from a free and consensual government by the people, to a new system of rule over the people by grabbing power from them permanently. Making it appear as if the people were asking for this particular change would be most useful.

The Rule of Men Trumps Liberty

Mutiny on “The Bounty”

Are we really rudderless?

If we look at America as a ship on a journey of destiny, through the seas of time, we can see that our ship of bounty is not by any means rudderless. Likewise the tea party movement is not rudderless either. America is a beautiful and complex ship with incredible power and equally incredible grace. Those that man the various stations that make her go are some of the best educated, most innovative, hard working and loyal people the world has ever had. The systems that make her go are the best ever designed for any journey near or far. They have performed superbly from her launching well over two centuries now.

Lately though our ship has began to falter, our engines are overtaxed, our fuel starved by some rather perplexing orders issued by a new officer corps over the last few decades. Our great ship has altered her course and headed off to some very troubled waters. In addition to the problems brewing within her bowels she has become a target designated for destruction by others.

On board her magnificent decks there are opposing factions that have worked well in times past to check and double check the actions of all to make sure that the proper and necessary procedures were adhered to to insure the integrity of the ship so we could safely navigate the stormy seas that compose the worlds history. So successful has this journey been that it is the envy of the entire world, and has spawned both awed admirers and jealous hatred alike.

However those who have ridden and lived their lives aboard have found liberty, freedom, reward, and happiness so long as they have maintained a respect for the integrity of her systems. Others have become disenchanted with the intended functions of her systems and make specious claims they are outdated, and the results of breaching the interlocks on our systems are beginning to have catastrophic results. The operating instructions were corrupted, the training too, the redesigns were constantly slipped in, and those who had redesign in mind seized power from those who wished for the integrity to be maintained. The results are that our engines are working much harder now, our fuel starved, and our boat is overladen and stressed to a breaking point.

Our troubles are many and to compound this hideous situation we are being steered straight into further trouble. Our systems may soon be beyond repair. We may be unable to change course, lose most of or all of our propulsion and lose any ability to institute any independent damage control. The ship is listing badly to the left.

The good news is that traditionally there are many more in the faction that believes in the integrity of our systems than there are who are instituting the redesigns. They may be able to save our ship yet. But how?

The redesigns control everything now. They control the officer promotion system and will use any means possible to keep that power. They hold all the key positions to steer and manage the power of the ship too. They control the procedures and the publications for running the ship and they control the fuel.

The ships communications network is vital to both the re-designers and the traditionalists. The messages are in conflict. The re-designers would have all on board believe that their redesigns are working splendidly and that not only is everything fine, it is much better, and will be very apparent once all the old thinking is gone.

The rest of the crew knows better. They have seen many such ships with the same ill designs wrecked on the rocky coasts of history. The rest of the crew are those that have now joined the tea party movement or will soon.

Our movements rudder is our shared knowledge of the integrity of systems designed superbly to work in harmony by limiting the power of those at the helm to redesign any of them. We are the engines of our ship. Our fuel is our way of life which is based on our God given rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

The officers of our ship have hijacked us, they are the pirates that seek to rob us of our choices and still think we will be their engines. They pretend to know of calmer waters and a better way forward, but they do not.

Re taking control of our ship is vital now. Being able to restore the integrity of our systems is also vital but will take much longer to repair. The pirates are guarding against both. They are trying to make their changes irreversible. They have just begun to employ techniques that will drown out any protests to their actions.

We do have a Captain for our ship, and all have sworn to obey this captain. Only those who actually are doing this are worthy of our loyalty and those that usurp our Captain’s authority need to be forever demoted, and never again be entrusted with any delegated power received by the people of our ship. All the pirates must be removed.

Our Captain is the US Constitution, and it is up to us to demand that only this steerage ever be used to guide our ship with Gods blessing and protection.

THOU, too, sail on, O Ship of State!
Sail on, O UNION, strong and great!
Humanity with all its fears,
With all the hopes of future years,
Is hanging breathless on thy fate!
We know what Master laid thy keel,
What Workmen wrought thy ribs of steel,
Who made each mast, and sail, and rope,
What anvils rang, what hammers beat,
In what a forge and what a heat
Were shaped the anchors of thy hope!
Fear not each sudden sound and shock,
’T is of the wave and not the rock;
’T is but the flapping of the sail,
And not a rent made by the gale!
In spite of rock and tempest’s roar,
In spite of false lights on the shore,
Sail on, nor fear to breast the sea!
Our hearts, our hopes, are all with thee,
Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, our tears,
Our faith triumphant o’er our fears,
Are all with thee,—are all with thee!

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The Clarity of Our Principles

This is an absolute must read for anyone and everyone in the tea party movement in my opinion.

“Clarity is the first step toward understanding, and understanding is the prerequisite to rational evaluation.”

Obama’s Atomic Bomb:The Ideological Clarity of the Democratic Agenda

by John David Lewis

—————————————————————————————

The GOP establishment does not get it.

The incumbent politicians will not listen.

Our country is being cannibalized by both parties.

The tea party movement needs unity enough to work together when needed.

We are in a fight to save this country and there is no time to spare or waste bickering over who has the better ideas on how to do it.  We must work together now!

Support any and all tea party movement efforts you can, it is time to take the next step, replacing the problem politicians with representative government again.

Why The Tea Party Movement is a Threat to Both Parties

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!
