A message from the Organizer of SDTP
Some people think the president and his people have been able to marginalize and slander the Tea Party so badly that we have become irrelevant. The real question is:
Has he discouraged the good folks in local Tea Parties enough to cause us to give up?
The only thing necessary for this tyrannical, dishonest, slanderous man (Obama) to achieve his goal of regaining Congress and full control of our great country is convincing YOU it’s over, that there is nothing you can do, that you should shut up and sit down. If that happens, it IS over.
Some people view the election results as proof we’ve been wrong all along. Could this be true? Let look at a few facts:
1) If America has really evolved into a progressive country, then the Democrats would never have received the “shellacking” they got in the 2010 election.
2) Our country’s decisions will never be any better than the information used to make them. False information will lead to bad decisions and even worse consequences every time. The information the people were fed from Obama and the media was professional spin at its best. Romney and company didn’t do much to correct it either.
3) Let’s say our candidate had been a trendy minority with the intellect of Gingrich, the “In-your-face” of Trump, the business experience of Romney, and the moral compass of Bachman or Santorum. Then run that person against a boring Progressive like Ralph Nader and see what you get.
It still wouldn’t define the electorate’s core fundamental Beliefs. To gain the vote of today’s low information electorate you need to do the “Hollywood Dance” and “spin” better than the other guy; substance, sadly, means less these days.
In Obama we see the perfect candidate. His “Cool Factor” meant he could go to the “View”, “Late Night”, “Pimp with a Limp” and all other fake news/media shows and weaken the blows when the “Real Reporters” asked hard, relevant questions.
His half black status shielded him from questions about his constant campaign lies, or his dirty Chicago style politics. Any hard questions had the risk of being met with the accusation of racism. This chameleon gladly lived in the bubble the media made for him….he could do no wrong!
America hasn’t made some quantum change; we still remain basically the same country that ousted the Progressive Congress in 2010. But in 2012 we were duped by professional propagandists, by a willing and eager media, and by a man and campaign team willing to wrongly slander a noble man at every turn. The president surely wasn’t re-elected because the country is better off financially, morally, spiritually, etc.
On election day I felt like that guy being run over by a tank in Tiananmen square, China, and listening to the president later that day, all my ears heard was: “Resistance is futile–you WILL be assimilated.” Trust me; I understand. I was tempted to lose hope too. However, I came to realize that our countrymen were not voting for socialism; they were voting against Romney’s killing of factory workers’ wives, putting woman in backroom alleys for abortions, and, as Biden said to Blacks, ” putting ya’ll back in chains”. I never thought people would be gullible and uninformed enough to actually believe that utterly false propaganda, but they did! To a lost soul, the allure of a Marxist utopian promise full of instant gratification, unearned riches and a false sense of freedom is all-powerful. But for those who are not morally lost and emotionally bankrupt, the promise is seen only for the lie that it is.
So…… Is it time for traditional Americans to give up?
If you have suddenly lost your sense of national sovereignty, personal responsibility, individual freedom, religious rights, fiscal sanity and the value of human life, then yes.
But I believe that the founding principles of this great country are worth fighting for. “We the People” must resist the temptation to give up and slip into despair. The country will surely wake up when the bills of socialism come due and it finds out that the tax term “Millionaire” and “Billionaire” really meant “Thousandaires.”
I know things are bad now, but realize we’ve had it much worse. During the 1776 Revolutionary War, the Patriots were in real trouble. British troops had quickly advanced through New York and New Jersey to crush the rebellion, and the Continental Army was in retreat and on the verge of disintegration. It was at that time that Thomas Paine penned “The Crisis”:
“These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: ’tis dearness only that gives everything its value.”
If those great Patriots had given up during a worse crisis than ours, America would have never been. They didn’t, and neither will we.
