Tea Partiers are ready to boil republicans in a pot of the stuff.
The aroma of double-cross is in the air as the GOP struggles to understand how a return to power and tentative popularity (or at least a hold on the tar and feathers) dropped into their lap and what to do with it. Between sobbing jags House Speaker John Boehner and other republicans seem to habitually confuse the definition of the word “compromise” with that of “surrender” and grow increasingly weak-kneed in the wake of idiotic accusations that standing for America somehow caused a lone nut wad to go full bore John Hinckley at a Tucson Safeway.
While the tea party movement marked a stunning and long over-due tsunami of reinvolvement of Americans in their own government it has not manifested in increased participation where real and effective structural change can and must be made… party politics.
The mass migration of Americans from the two major parties over the past generation has left both the Democrat and Republican parties subject to the control of the relatively few who bother to participate.
This is less of an issue on the Democrat side of the aisle simply because that party’s history is one of special interests aligned against Constitutional absolutes, such as individual liberty and rights as Creator endowed attributes. A party that not only stood to protect the right to own Africans but then attempted to break away to form its own nation to that end (the Confederate States of America) and then upon being defeated in that effort commenced on a century long filibuster to derail the implementation of rights for their former “property” cannot be reformed by increased contributions of additional like minds.
However, this movement away from party involvement is catastrophic to the Union when applied to the Republican ranks. There it weakens the only barrier to the abandonment of our legacy in favor of the standard of servitude for the masses, an affliction suffered by Mankind since we first developed organized societies.
Duplicitous collaborators with evil in the media, vapid talking heads, along with a collection of office holding hypocrites and on line reprobates have all descended on our way of life like a starving pack of hyenas on a fallen zebra. They smell Lady Liberty’s blood and have pounced in an effort to finish us off, to extinguish free thought, speech and the lights of the Shinning City on the Hill to install in their place the false god of Statism in all of its hideous forms.
All that stands between them and victory is a morally corrupt and undependable GOP yet tea party dogma holds that involvement in party politics is wrong.
That canon could not be more wrong or destructive.
The effort to save our legacy and pass it on to our children is largely in GOP and thus our hands. We must flood the party with our people, dominate Republican apparatus, and be the vertebrae transplant that returns the Party of Lincoln and Reagan to its rightful place as guardian of the Emancipation of all people.
Mythological winged Sirens lured ancient sailors to death on rocky shores; their song today lures frustrated patriots to impotent third parties or lulls them into dangerous delusion. It is fantasy that simply voting, while attending rallies and waving signs between votes, is somehow a contribution to the war for our national soul and not a placebo.
Politically correct labels like “moderate” or feel-good non-affiliations like calling oneself an “independent” are in reality synonymous with “uninvolved” and “cowardly.” They signify a willingness to leave the hard work up to somebody else and a lack of desire to join the fight.
We are witnessing nothing less than a battle between right and wrong in which the dark forces of evil are assaulting all that is good for dominance over the heart of the United States and thus end this noble experiment in Human Rights we inherited and have a sacred obligation to protect and pass on.
Until such time as a third party dedicated to our national ideals successfully fills local offices with loyal members, in significant numbers, in all 50 states there will be no viable alternative to the present two party structure. By not picking a side in the battle between good and evil a patriot contributes nothing. Outside of the rare instance the winner of any given race will continue to be either a democrat or a republican. Even in those anomalous events in which a third party or unaffiliated candidate wins a seat that individual will either have to join one of the other two in caucus or be an ineffective appendage worthless to the fight.
By only showing up on Election Day and voting for a third party a patriot has left all the choices for candidate and party platform up to those who bothered to show up and make the effort throughout the process leading up to the Election Day confirmation or rejection of their attempts.
If affiliated with either major party yet all you do is vote then you are simply a spectator derelict in your duties as a citizen, especially in a time when our nation and freedoms are under assault from within. The rest of us simply cannot afford your lack of interest and commitment.
Not being involved in the process beyond some grade school version of civics makes a citizen nothing more than a bystander, a detached observer prepared only to take pot shots from the cheap seats in the peanut gallery while wrapped in some kind of self-righteous and totally phony cloak of “hey I did my part.” Quite frankly, if all you do is tea party and vote then do us all a favor and stay home because you simply don’t get it.
To effect true change and be anything but in the way, each individual must be a Tea Party of One and strive to do several things. Chief among those things is to stand strong in the face of political correctness and its devastating blow-back. Each of us must vow to recognize that the letter “D” after a politician’s name is a metaphorical Mark of the Beast, inasmuch as that party is now a wholly owned subsidiary of the domestic enemy, and that to repair and make again effective the Republican Party we must each do our part to take control of that party, not step away from it.
To be victorious each tea partier must be a true patriot and pick a side, just as those whose name our movement adopted did in Boston in 1773.
So, where stand you?
