Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and House Democrat Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) blame the Tea Party for Capitol Hill budget gridlock. Mark Williams: “We happily plead guilty”
Williams: ”Anybody foolish enough to invest their money with the United States Government knowing our condition deserves to lose their money”
“Unfortunately, there are a number of new people in the Congress who think that a compromise is a sellout,” House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said not long ago. Those “new people” are the Tea Party.
Hoyer is about one-quarter right but if he insists we’ll take full credit!
I say about one-quarter right because the budget stalemate has persisted for close to 2 years now, pre-”new people,” and is currently fueled by an insane explosion in massive and unsustainable debt and spending. That debt and spending is being driven by reckless democrats (redundant) who are throwing your money around like a drunken Kennedy (also redundant) on shore leave.
Now the tax and spenders of both parties are poised to force the United States Government to default on trillions of dollars of debt unless we allow them to pile on trillions more. Like a hard-core, final stage alcoholic they are demanding one more bottle after which they swear to God that, this time, honest injun they’ll reform and control their habit. As for any sort of structural changes that would lead to real reductions of their habit, well let’s just forget that because to cut the budget for such necessities as cowboy poetry in Nevada would just lead to starving children and dying old people, not to mention massive human suffering and abuses beyond Mengele in scale.
The Tea Party representatives in Congress are the grownups in the room exercising the adult supervision that has been missing from that out of control feast on working Americans’ carcasses for several administrations, of both parties.
Democrat pigs squealing because their access to the trough is being restricted are finally recognizing reality. That reality is that their dismissal and derision of the Tea Party was wrong from the start. That reality is that their painting of the Tea Party as “extreme” only served to bring their own extremism into sharp relief.
When Democrat leaders hurl what they think are accusations and negatives at the Tea Party, the Tea Party answers back with “Yeah, so what’s your point?” That is because those Democrat “accusations” and “negatives” are neither, more like they are descriptive and hopeful.
Descriptive in that we are in fact putting the brakes on an even greater threat to our country than international terrorism and figures like Osma bin Laden; namely out of control democrats and figures like Chuck Schumer. Hopeful in the sense that maybe, just maybe the Tea Party is going to be able to continue to force the Republicans and their weeping leadership to remember that they are supposed to be vertebrates, not the non-arthropod invertebrates that they have evolved into since Ronald Reagan was termed out of the White House.
As for that default… we’re there. Anybody foolish enough to invest their money with the United States Government knowing our condition deserves to lose their money if that’s what it comes to. It was their decision to take the risk, not the Tea Party’s.
Read Mark’s commentary: “The Tea Party Must Take Over the GOP”
The entrenched politicians of both parties have been living and acting in denial worthy of any hard-core meth-head for decades. Citizens’ anger was bubbling to a boil through two terms of George W. Bush compromise and then the inexplicable Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), which can only be described as income redistribution from the middle class to the elite and effectively impoverished the working class in a massive transfer of wealth from those that earned it to those who were already wealthy.
Open disdain for and ridicule of America, her people and the peoples endowed rights became official government policy with the election of America’s first Marxist President and brought our anger to a full boil.
That our national debt is now $169 trillion*— $169,000,000,000,000 — there are 320 million of us, you can do your own math to figure out your individual liability (hint, it comes to around a million and half bucks per household) is meaningless to the political and media elite who wallow in the depths of denial. We are broke, bankrupt, penniless. Until President Richard Nixon severed our money from gold a dollar bill was worth 1/35th of an ounce of gold on the international markets. That same dollar bill is now worth less than 1/1,500th of that same ounce and dropping in value against the metal faster than Anthony Weiner’s pants on a cyber-date.
Over 2 years I traveled to nearly 200 cities nation-wide with the Tea Party Express and addressed crowds that grew steadily into arena sized, patriotic Americans clamoring to take their country back from the small and privileged class that lives off of our labor. We all started to recognize that these people were deadly parasites and that we were the rapidly weakening host.
Along the way literally millions of people came to fall under the general description of “tea party” and thousands of groups, large and small, erupted. The Capitol Hill crowd dismissed us all, first as cranks and eventually guilty of evils up to and including terrorism. They sat on their hill while figuratively putting their fingers in their ears and humming to themselves, as if to mock and then ignore the people would make them go away.
Didn’t work for Marie Antoinette or Hosni Mubarak either.
So, yes Misters Ried, Hoyer, Schumer and your whole band of domestic enemies, you have now given us Americans (you remember us don’t you?) the credit and respect that we deserve, now pay attention and act as the lowly servants that you are supposed to be.
WE are the boss of you, YOU dance to OUR tune, and right now the Tea Party is our band.
