We have the ‘official’ call for a ‘Year of Action!’ We have our Paul asking the key question of the moment: ‘Where are the jobs, Obama?” And then we have the Tea Party’s State of the Union. Sometimes you have to wonder if some of them have blood instead of water in their morning tea. But at the core of it, it’s all about pumping American spirit through our veins.
If we know in our hearts that something is wrong, “that the ‘American Dream’ is falling out of reach for far too many of us”, proposes Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), the voice of the Tea Party for this year, then it’s time to get back to the basics of being a true citizen: Protest.
“Protesting against dysfunctional government is a great American tradition, going back to the original tea party in Boston, about 240 years ago. Americans have a natural instinct to stand up and speak out when they know something is wrong.” (Sen. Mike Lee)
And what’s the source of that dysfunction? Paul answers in his own response to the State of the Union:
“It’s not that the government is inherently stupid — although that’s debatable — it’s that the government” is on a different page than individual citizens when it comes to money. (Politico)
Big government isn’t the answer. Obama is still trying to fix inequality, and here’s the problem Lee sees with that: he’s trying to fix inequality with “ well … more inequality,” more out-of-touch government, more rules and regulations.
“Hope and change needs to be more than just a slogan,” Paul said. “The lesson should be that sending money to Washington and expecting them to send it back is foolhardy.” (WND)
The original Tea Party would have been ‘a footnote in history’ if they stopped pushing for a government that they wanted.
It took them 14 long years to get from Boston to Philadelphia, where they created, with our Constitution, the kind of government they did want.
In America, the test of any political movement is not what that movement is against, but what it is for. (Sen. Mike Lee/Tea Party)
It’s our jobs as citizens to keep at it. Maybe Lee’s “reformers” will join us on the march. So what’s YOUR response to the Tea Party’s State of the Union? Let us know below or on Facebook. What are you doing to get the government that you want? Share this with others! We need to work together if we want to make a difference.
