It is an incredibly sad day in America when we, as Americans, have to demand that our country return to the very Constitutional principles that moved this country forward for 135 years before the progressives and the global bankers sank their hooks into us and our wallets via the Federal Reserve, lobbyists, and special interest groups.
FACT: The Tea Party is a viable political movement affecting change in our country that started in 2007 with the Ron Paul Revolution and which gathered steam in February, 2009 with Obama’s Trillion Dollar Stimulus Package.
FACT: The GOP has been trying to co-opt the real grassroots Tea Party into compromising with the ‘other party’ throwing gasoline on the fiscal fire ‘to get the ball rolling’ when it comes to affecting change in Washington.
FACT: The Tea Party endorsed and backed candidates who then won elections in both houses of Congress in November, 2010.
FACT: Tea Party Patriots are watching the newly elected congressmen and senators for political behavior instead of Constitutional and common sense behavior.
FACT: The Tea Party is not taking any prisoners. An elected official that goes sideways and compromises on issues of fiscal responsibility, smaller government, and taxation is going to get the boot next election. Did we not say that we are sick to death of the District of Criminals destroying our country’s future through debt, taxation and the loss of liberty?
FACT: Allen West has gone political in an effort to keep Obama and the democrats from getting what they wanted and to make Obama look inept. Was this what the tea party wanted, or did we say ‘DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, RAISE THE DEBT CEILING! OUR FISCAL HOUSE IS ON FIRE AND WE NEED TO PUT OUT THE FLAMES!’
Nope; I guess not.
Not only is Allen West abandoning tea party principles, but now he has descended into playing Washington’s brand of chess instead of kicking over the board and re-writing the rules with the Constitution backing him.
Allen West explains his Debt Ceiling vote
To add insult to injury, Allen West slammed Ron Paul’s foreign policy when it comes to Iran. Remember, the Iranian revolution in 1979 was due to the US installing the Shah in 1953. Our best and brightest are dying in foreign lands because of what our Constitution-shredding government has been doing for decades. It has to stop and I would much rather not go the way of the Soviets…
Allen West- Ron Paul Not the Guy to be President
Our fiscal house is on fire and the establishment republicans and democrats are having a fierce discussion about whether to use gasoline or kerosene to put it out. The Tea Party was sent to utterly and absolutely change the way Washington works, but Allen West has joined the other side by voting to raise the debt ceiling another $2.4 TRILLION, has created an UN-CONSTITUTIONAL ‘Super Congress’ of 12 establishment arsonists, and has put an impossible Catch-22 into place that forces 535 men and women to decide which will be the best way to further damage the economy in the greatest way possible.
Thanks Allen. Thanks for adding $8 Trillion in debt and taking us farther away from our goal of smaller government, lower taxes, and fiscal responsibility…and all in the name of party unity. The establishment must have done quite a number on you to get you to flip so quickly.
I agree. I was actively campaigning for Allen West to run in 2012, but after he voted yes on the debt deal, unconstitutionally changing the power of Congress, I no longer support him.
Lot of noise that West is considering a run for the Senate, I guess he thinks he does not need those who elected him to the House.
Very enlightening for those to believe that
the ruling class in Iran would welcome M.A.D. by detonating a nuclear device.The Mullahs
so far have not to my knowledge strapped on a bomb and detonated themselves,but would rather have useful idiots doing it for them.Mullahs have no more desire to kill themselves than anyone else and a nuclear device,does not play favorites.Everybody dies.
Well, truth is that Ron Paul is a great big giant idiot when it comes to foreign policy. Isolationism is not an option. What is an option is to stop funding foreign governments, especially those that are in fact hostile to the United States. But allowing Iran to get the bomb…when it has assumed de facto control of Lebanon via Hizbullah, which is now establishing a base of operations in Cuba btw…, and when it is operating as a destabilizing force in Egypt, Iraq, and elsewhere, and when the regime doesn’t care about nuclear annihilation as it fits into their plan of Mahdi redemption, is just plain butt stupid.
And let’s not forget the worst part of the Iranian race for nukes…a new burgeoning arms race in the Middle East. Israel has had nuclear capability for a few decades now. Any guesses as to why the Arabs, with the exception of Saddam and Assad (who is backed by Iran), were not hell bent on going nuclear? Because they knew there was no threat from Israel, unless they got backed into a corner. No one in the Arab world considers this the case with Iran.
Now, I would be perfectly happy if Israel took care of this mess. And the Arabs would be more than happy to help. But the White House is tying everyone’s hands at the moment. And if I were Israel and the Arabs, I’d feel a lot better about acquiring targets knowing the 6th fleet had the back door.
Anyone okay with the Taliban getting a hold of Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal? Ron Paul must be okay with that too.
Are our military affairs overseas completely mismanaged, bungled, and needlessly expensive? Yep. But the solution is not to crawl under a rock.
Ron Paul might make a fine president, as long as he has absolutely no input in the direction of the nation’s foreign policy.
Here’s some ancient advice courtesy of my people: When you know an enemy is coming to kill you…kill them first.
As for West bowing down, we can point the finger at him, and we should. But the real horse’s ass is John Boner. He led the Republicans and Tea Party into a minefield with tap shoes on and no map. Expect more of the same considering the latest poll numbers have Congress with an even lower approval rating than Pampers.
Rick Perry’s lookin’ real good right about now.
Why does anyone find it amazing that West caved in and supported Obama’s bullshit deal. Where money lies, honor dies!
If politicians aren’t corrupt when they arrive in DC they will be corrupt, as soon as the Communist controlled NWO and the Muslim Brotherhood start lining their pockets with millions of dollars.
Washington DC is a corrupt, vile, stinking cesspool, and all the politicians who dwell there are scumbags.
They do not seek to serve the people, they seek to only serve themselves.
Stop paying worthless fu^&%ng politicians, go back to our constitutional roots, and first and foremost, get rid of the street corner hustler Buttcrack Obunghole and his grubby wife Moochelle.
2012 can’t get here soon enough as I would vote for a skunk before I would vote for Obama. The skunk would certainly be more intelligent, and would probably smell better as well.
