Tea Party Perspective April 20, 2015

As usual there is so much news today it is hard to discern what is relevant and what is not.  What is truth and what is not truth.

Recently I was watching KTNV news out of Las Vegas as they were covering the one year anniversary of the Bundy Rally.  The onsite reporter referred to Cliven Bundy as a “tea party darling”.

That came as big news as Cliven Bundy has never been a member of the tea party, nor have we as a group ever supported Mr. Bundy.  As a matter of record I did visit with Mr. Bundy to encourage him to send the militia’s packing and he refused to do so.

To be clear, we do not support government over reach; but we also believe in the rule of law.  The antics of the BLM were not acceptable and that is why we held a rally in Las Vegas requesting Sheriff Gillespie step up and do the job he was elected to do and have the BLM withdraw from the area.

The next day he did that.

What I find is the tea party is used when it benefits an agenda and also abused when progressives want to push forward their agenda.

What we need today is a civil society for we cannot have a Republic without a civil society.  Everyone in this country cannot be a victim and require help or redress from the government.  To push the progressive movement forward, you must feel as if you are a victim and sign on to their belief system.

Right now the progressive left is working on making the middle class the victim of the day.  This is how they push for more government control on your life and your loss of freedom.

The progressive left is not liberal in the sense of old day politics, the progressive left is a Marxist movement who uses political correctness to push white guilt on the middle class, this is called cultural Marxism.  They are left wing and not true liberals.

The day before Hillary Clinton announced her not surprising run for the presidency, her campaign staff held a dinner for the mainstream media. ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, Associated Press and a few others.  The purpose of this gathering was to get everyone on board with her message.  Her message will be those in the middle class are the new victims in our society and she is just like one of us.

Hillary Clinton is not like one of us and it is a foolish and I hope a defeating approach to her campaign.  I hope there are still those in the middle class who value personal responsibility as the best approach to living their lives.  We do not need another Clinton in the Whitehouse.  I would add we do not need another Bush in the Whitehouse.  We need a fresh face, we need a leader and we need someone who is very smart.  A person who will put the country and the constitution before ambition.

I am watching to see if that person emerges from the pack.  There are some good possibilities but we have a long way to go before we step into the voting booth and determine our fate.

    This should have correctly and truthfully read that Sheriff Gillespie could have prevented all of this by doing his job, but he didn’t until the Oath Keepers and Militia showed up! The BLM nor Gillespie backed off until the Oath Keepers and Militia were in place. Do you really think the Sheriff or BLM would have backed off if the Oath Keepers and Militia had not come to Bunkerville?

      The author wrote, “To push the progressive movement forward, you must feel as if you are a victim and sign on to their belief system.”

      How about this rewrite: “To push the christian movement forward, you must admit to being a sinner and sign on to the Jesus belief system.”

      I am, of course, assuming a strong tie between the far right conservatives and Christianity. Bundy’s a Mormon BTW. I am underwhelmed with the meat of Tea Party convictions and christian morals. Its thin and easy to debunk, but it has an appeal to the lesser thinkers, who make up the convinced fold.

        Short reply, one I am not a Mormon and really don’t think that matters at all in the pursuit of freedom for all American’s to include atheists also. You demonstrate no basic understanding of tea party values so I will clarify, (Lower taxes, smaller government and greater personal freedom) that would include the freedom to not believe in anything.

      I think that Gillespie was skating along and with the help of many outside groups he changed course. I also think most Americans do not understand the Sheriff is the chief law enforcement officer and the feds have to back off if he understands his role as sheriff. Oathkeepers also held a rally on the same day in another area of LV so the pressure was on Gillespie to do what he should have done in the beginning. If you remember he publicly said he was not going to get involved when this all came up.
