The judge is hosting today and he starts out this program with the two-fold reason for ‘the rise of the tea party’. I think he’s right and incredibly eloquent about what Tea Party Patriots actually stand for; all bias, spin, and smear aside.
I have often argued that the reason we have the rise of the tea party this election season is two fold. First, the republicans under Pres. George W. Bush, proved themselves utterly unworthy of governing within the confines of the Constitution. They fought two illegal wars, created enormous deficits, gave hundreds of billions of your money to rich bankers, federalized education and seniors’ prescription drugs, spied on us without warrants, and arrested people without putting them on trial. The second and more controversial reason is the sad similarity in the two major political parties today. To demonstrate that similarity, I have argued here at Fox and at speeches around the country, that we don’t even have a two party system any longer, we have one party; the Big Government Party. It has a republican wing that likes deficits, corporate welfare, assaults on civil liberties, and war. It has a democratic wing that likes taxes, individual welfare, assaults on commercial liberties, and war.
Now, along comes the tea party, and on paper it stands for basic Jeffersonian Principles. That the federal government can only regulate in the sixteen areas of behavior that the Constitution gives it. Our freedoms come from our humanity, not from the government. That the states that have given power to the fed can take it back. That we are entitled to sound money and only the gold standard can produce that, and that we should only fight defensive wars.
The judge starts with an interview with Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, and then moves on to Foreclosure-Gate.
Members of Congress and Michele Bachmann are extending an invitation to you; America, to a tele-townhall over Pelosi’s special session of the U.S. House to pass a $26 BILLION union pension bill next week. The link to sign up is further down in the following article.
Bachmann Calls for Nancy Pelosi To Enter 12 Step Program For Her Addiction To Job-Killing Spending
With Nancy Pelosi’s declaration that Congress will be reconvening to authorize billions of dollars of spending the government doesn’t have, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann announced she will be holding a National Tea Party Tele-Townhall to listen to the response of the American people.
“Nancy Pelosi has already spent over $3.6 trillion on so-called ‘stimulus’ spending and now she wants to give in excess of $20 billion to politicians to spend on even more big government,” Congresswoman Bachmann said. “She is clearly addicted to spending other people’s money and is rushing members of Congress back to Washington to get a spending fix. Could it be she wanted to ensure she has distributed taxpayer-subsidized ‘walking around money’ to public employee unions across the country prior to the election to desperately try to save her already endangered majority? The same public employee unions which will provide the boots on the ground to re-elect a Democrat majority in the mid-term elections, where Speaker Pelosi’s grip on the gavel is in serious doubt?”
“After only a few days away from D.C., Democrats in Congress are determined to not let even a week go by without spending additional billions of dollars for even more big government programs. That’s why I’ll be joining with other leaders to hold a National Tea Party Tele-Townhall to listen to Americans who have had enough of the out-of-control spending and endless tax increases.”
