One question, where was this so-called Tea Party when Bush was in office? At no other time has there been such a split between political parties, groups, and our people. What I see is not a tea party, I see an excuse to gather racist, anti-government, and anti-Obama supporters taking an old title and putting a new spin on it. It’s organized ignorance if you ask me.
In our generation who even new what a Tea Party was besides the chapter that covered it in your middle school or high school history class. Sarah Palin, the queen of the Tea Party movement couldn’t be setting herself up for more of a failure than right now. She is encouraging this ignorance and as you can see it is beginning to get a little hostile. Check out the story:
OKLAHOMA CITY — Frustrated by recent political setbacks, tea party leaders and some conservative members of the Oklahoma Legislature say they would like to create a new volunteer militia to help defend against what they believe are improper federal infringements on state sovereignty.
Tea party movement leaders say they’ve discussed the idea with several supportive lawmakers and hope to get legislation next year to recognize a new volunteer force. They say the unit would not resemble militia groups that have been raided for allegedly plotting attacks on law enforcement officers.
“Is it scary? It sure is,” said tea party leader Al Gerhart of Oklahoma City, who heads an umbrella group of tea party factions called the Oklahoma Constitutional Alliance. “But when do the states stop rolling over for the federal government?”
In the past political parties encouraged people to come together under their ideals not create a divide. Ronal Reagan reached out to Republicans, Democrats, and Non Partisan groups to further our country. We are truly hustling backwards these days and quite frankly its scary. And most of this drama is spurring from one man trying to make a change.
