Republican leadership seems more concerned with taking on the tea party and any candidate that dares to question their effectiveness, instead of doing what they should be doing to defend their party’s prerogatives in the institution of the Senate.Apparently, that taking out the tea party is a more urgent problem to leaders than the impending destruction of the nation’s health care system and the disintegration of the Senate as a meaningful check on executive power.
Kevin O'Brien has a great article at Cleveland.com about the Tea Party and the only thing the GOP establishment has to say to conservatives: "Stop wanting something better and vote for who we give you." He also examines how the liberal Republican establishment is coming out of the shadows to make open war against conservatives. If the RINOs refuse to get with the program and mend their ways. so be it. Let the American people see what's really going on.
South Dakota Rep. and U.S. Senate Candidate Stace Nelson was interviewed by the Tea Party Express. In his interview, Rep. Nelson highlights the problems that an actual conservative faces in the SD Senate race and his record of championing conservative issues in the SD legislature.
It has been said that success has many fathers, but failure is an orphan. Not so in the current political milieu. As the GOP continues its march towards irrelevance, the finger pointing and blame games continue in earnest. Depending on who you ask, the Tea Party is either the problem or the solution. The same might be said of the Republican establishment. Either way, things aren't looking good for the Grand Old Party, and if something doesn't change – and soon – America's two party system might just go the way of the rotary telephone.
Trevor Loudon, an author and researcher from New Zealand, was interviewed by Ginni Thomas at the Daily Caller. He points out a sad reality: that with Americans growing up in the richest, most free and benevolent country in the world, we take it for granted that it will go on forever. Loudon says there are people in our government who are supporters of tyrannical regimes like North Korea, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, and China...and they are calling the Tea Party patriots "terrorists."
Our country is headed into a potentially fatal downward spiral, under the tyrannical control of a hostile government that no longer represents We the People. I call upon all patriots - Democrats, Republicans and others - to peacefully descend on Washington D.C. on the 19th en masse, and reclaim our freedoms promised to us in our Constitution, the same Constitution that the Obama administration so frequently violates.
Glenn Beck did an interesting segment a couple of days ago on the Virginia gubernatorial race, the "libertarian" spoiler in that race, and the propaganda being manufactured and spread like manure by the RINO establishment of the GOP about the Tea Party. He had on his show John Cardillo, President of PsyID which specializes in social media and actionable intelligence. They gather their intelligence primarily not through polling, but by playing "fly on the wall" and monitoring social media discussions.
The Liberal press wants to advance the idea that the Tea Party is trouble for the GOP because their policy positions are "radical" and out of touch with "mainstream Conservatives." This simply is not true. I would challenge any critic to name one distinct policy position advocated by the Tea Party that is radically different than the platform embraced by a majority of Americans who identify with the Republican Party or movement conservatism.
You may have heard by now that the GOP members of the ruling class (otherwise known as RINOs) are tired of being embarrassed by Tea Party patriots, and are gearing up to strike out at the Tea Party movement. But the Tea Party movement isn't taking their declaration of war sitting down. They are mobilizing on multiple fronts not just to repel these attacks from liberal "Republicans," but to take back the GOP from those who are more interested in helping the Democrats than in advancing Republican values.
The presidential election of 2016 will be a defining moment for the nation and for the Republican Party. So let me say what I see as the Republican "dream team" ticket for 2016: Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson. Yes, I can hear Democrats saying, "Oh yes, I hope Star is right. This will guarantee another four years of our big government socialism. These tea party whackos could never win." And I can hear the Republican "establishment" saying basically the same thing (any chance these folks have more in common with Democrats than they do with real conservatives?).Next Page »
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
