Yes, I hold you and your political party responsible for the current state of this country.
You and your party led the charge for the disastrous "make home ownership more affordable" policies of Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and the Clinton Administration which was the precipitating cause of the current economic troubles.
You and your party have worked tirelessly to bloat the educational system with bureaucrats and paper-pushers instead of concentrating on the simple yet complex act of transmitting knowledge from teacher to student.
You and your party have turned concern for the Earth's ecosystem (good) into a Holy Crusade to stamp out any impact of human activity on the planet.
You and your party have advocated the welfare-state-at-all-costs mentality which has bankrupted this country.
You and your party have lead the charge to corrupt and undermine all of the institutions of this country, from the Constitution to the Federal Government to the universities to the media, which were supposed to guarantee the freedom and liberty of every individual citizen of the United States.
For that, I hold you responsible.
But wait--I hold the Republicans, and myself for voting for them, responsible for a lot of this as well.
Because far, far too often, Republican politicians have said one thing during elections (freedom! liberty! free markets!) but as soon as they get elected, turn around and become enablers for all of the above Democrat wrecking balls swinging at civil society.
And Republican voters like me let them get away with it, because a lot of us saw the Republicans as the lesser of two evils. I know a lot of Democrats didn't really like their candidates either, but saw them similarly as the lesser of the evils. Different people, different opinions, but the same result.
It is the entire political industry in the U.S.A. that the Tea Party is aiming to replace. The Tea Party movement is at its core a Good Government uprising of the people against an increasingly intrusive government.
It just so happens that in 2010 it is the Republican enablers of the primarily Democratic big-government movement whom the Tea Party movement are coming after this election. This is happening in a political year of immense antipathy towards government in general. And the Democrats control the Congress and the Presidency. But what is happening is NOT a Republican movement.
The Republican enablers of Democrat-sponsored big government are running scared, and are becoming increasingly desperate. That explains why the Republican Senators did not strip Alaska Senator Murkowski of her senority positions, even when she announced she would attempt a write-in campaign against the duly elected Republican candidate for Senate in Alaska.
The point being that the Tea Party insurgency is a revolt against intrusive government, not against just Obama, or just the Republicans, or just the Democrats. It's a revolt against the entire corrupt, obnoxious, officious, increasingly oppressive government which is opposed to every political principle upon which the United States of America was founded.
So, friend Democrat, where do you stand? Are you with the "Progressives?" With the technocrats? With the authoritarians? With the busybodies? With the bureaucrats? With the social engineers? With the socialists? With the Gramscians? With the Marxists? With the Maoists who have been, and are currently in the Obama Administration?
Or, are you ready to consider another choice?
Come back to American values. Reassert your American citizenship based on American values.
Come back to us.
Join your fellow citizens. Help us clean up our political mess--clean up our financial mess--clean up our educational mess--clean up our intellectual mess--clean up our country.
Embrace freedom. Embrace liberty. Embrace the beautiful chaos of a vibrant free economy under a rule of law which does not tilt the balance towards the rich, or towards the poor, or towards the powerful, or towards the well-connected. Justice, impartially delivered to rich and poor and strong and weak. We have strayed far from that today in this country--very, very far. Help your neighbors bring this country back to that vision.
None of us have lived up to the promise of America's founders. But the promise is still there.
All will be forgiven--if you give up your dreams of power and glory. Give up your unrealistic visions of equality of outcome, of collective salvation, of redistribution of wealth. There is no path to those visions which does not end in utter carnage.
Embrace freedom--not just for yourself but for everyone else. Embrace the freedom to succeed, and embrace the freedom to fail.
Join us, today. Take another look at what Tea Party-backed candidates are REALLY saying--not what MSNBC, CNN, or the other networks are telling you they are saying. Actually read what Sarah Palin writes, not what the newspapers report. You will find something very disturbing.
You are being lied to. Lies of omission, mostly, but lies of commission as well.
Stop believing the lies. Join us and help us re-establish truth as the foundation of American political culture.
