"You Asked and We Listened"
I am appalled at the Republican Party hijacking by the Tea Party. Since when did this once proud American political party fall under the sway of what is apparently no better than the Communist Party? Communists believe in one party only - no others count - governed under one ideology dictated from behind closed doors and rewritten at will. Furthermore, Communists claim equality for all but in fact discriminated mightily against women, minorities and the poor. It appears the Tea Party wants only to deny our Right to Life - by curtailing funds for clean air and clean water, deny women's access to family planning largely servicing poor single moms (federal dollars are already banned for abortions), and deny right to healthcare except for the very rich and the well-connected. This is a sham and for once proud Republicans a shame. There must be no rise of Communism in the guise of Tea Party Patriots who seek only to destroy our democracy.
I have never heard such garbage in my life!
I've just returned from a local "Taxed Enough Already" Party meeting and, as always, find nothing but the most patriotic, most caring, most responsible Americans I've ever had the pleasure to connect with.
Have you ever even been to a T.E.A. Party event or a T.E.A. Party meeting? What on earth put any ideas in your head that there is any connection whatsoever with Communism? Is it communistic to expect our government to hold true to the United States Constitution? Have you ever even read the Constitution? Are you the least bit familiar with the fact that it spells out quite specifically WHAT THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT MAY DO "FOR US AS WELL AS TO US" and anything not spelled out is given to the individual states? NO WHERE IN OUR CONSTITUTION DOES IT ALLOW THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO TAKE MONEY FROM THE PEOPLE AND USE IT FOR THE PURPOSE OF DOING ANYTHING FOR WOMEN OR TO WOMEN!!
Is it communistic to expect our elected politicians to work for the people who pay their salaries and be fiscally responsible with the people's hard-earned tax dollars? Is it communistic to want to limit the size of our government to within the parameters of the United States Constitution PRECISELY SO THAT IT CANNOT BECOME A TYRANNICAL, CENTRALIZED, COMMUNISTIC FORM OF GOVERNMENT?
Is it communistic to believe individual liberty is far more important than the collective state? I DON'T THINK YOU HAVE EVEN THE MOST BASIC UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT COMMUNISOM IS!!!
The T.E.A. Party is fighting for the freedom and liberty of ALL OUR CITIZENS, men and women, against an administration that is marching all of us into the tyranny of socialism and beyond faster than at any time in history.
The T.E.A. Party is not a third party. It is simply patriotic Americans from all races, religions, socio-economic groups and political persuasions who simply believe in FREEDOM. Freedom that cannot be given nor taken away by any from of government!
If we are able to save all women from the slavery that is this growing nanny-welfare-state, we will have given them true freedom to earn their own way, decide their own destiny and stand on their own two feet. The socialist utopia nonsense you prefer to hand them with a few "free" (paid for by all other citizens...there is no such thing as free!) health services will never compare to saving their real freedom that will allow them to thrive and prosper!
Perhaps you had better re-educate yourself about who the T.E.A. Party really is and what they stand for. Then, start thanking each and every one of them for all they are doing to save this Republic and give liberty to all women!
