Let me explain: The Republican Party no longer represents the true core values of real conservatives, that is, smaller and less intrusive govt,
individual liberties, low taxes, growth of private sector and free enterprise. Instead it has acquiesced to the same silly policies of bloated,
over-controlling big government nanny-state type fiscal policies and even some social engineering. This is why there was such a big focus on spending
in the Tea Party movement, we are and have been spending way too much. Which brings me to my next point: which is that if anyone has been following
the budget process this year, the govt has botched it big time and it should be evident that the more govt tries to control, the less real control it
has. It must fail because Socialism/communism doesn't work. Big spending liberals need to finally get the lesson of the failure of the Soviet Union
with regard to the centralized control of the means of production, which is what communism is. It's a failed system and has never worked anywhere. Now
we see the incompetence and inability to just get a budget. It should be obvious, big govt is a failed system.
Now, the program of big spending in Congress(in a bi partisan way here) is to print money for whatever they want and cannot get in taxes. Look at the
original Boston Tea Party. Do people realize how much more in taxes the individual pays today than even the original Colonists rebelled against? They
were a far more independent group of people than we are today. They all had guns because they were still hunters for food. They had plantations, and
every day was a possible life and death situation in such a wild environment.
So now we allow the printing of money by the Fed, which devalues the dollar, which in turn drives up inflation, which in turn causes people to feel
that they don't have enough and then the big spenders say, see we need to increase the minimum wage. Then the Unions will go to the bargaining table
and demand higher wages and benefits to be paid for by the taxpayers.
Tea Partiers are saying enough of this madness. And remember people are still figuring out what's going on here, and T Partiers represent a segment of
awakened Americans. Many are Ron Paul supporters, but the ones who are not still need to figure out some of this process of how the Fed destroys our
currency. Ron Paul still seems a little over the edge to some people, but I think as people wake up they will see how right he is about many things.
