It seems the fire the Tea Party created in 2010 is down to a simmer in 2012. I do not understand how so many self-proclaimed leaders in the Tea Party movement are banking on a progressive named Mitt Romney. I think many involved in this grass roots movement have allowed two things to skew their views: 1.)They want Obama out of office, and 2.) They want lower taxes. These two things have allowed them to accept a liberal in conservative clothing as their hope for change. I find it interesting how so many are unwilling to call out Romney based on his voting record and speak very bluntly based on these facts. It’s going to be sickening to listen to people like Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh (assuming he will endorse Romney) make excuses for Romney under that flag of “anybody but Obama.” These people are willing to risk losing the war in order to win a battle. They are willing to replace one Marxist with another Marxist and then proclaim victory!
The real battle ground is the House and Senate. It does not matter who the president is if we control a majority of the Senate and House.
I guess the Tea Party on a national level is dead in the water. If they are willing to accept a progressive big government liberal like Mitt Romney all because they want to defeat Obama, then they might as well shut up about small government, more freedoms, repealing Obamacare (to replace it with state mandated Romneycare?) and lower taxes.
I say this because their actions – or shall I say their lack of actions – speak louder than their words. Now, I fully understand that this blog DOES NOT APPLY to all those who proclaim the label Tea Party. Those true patriots in this movement will continue to fight for liberty, but they must understand it’s time to purge out those who are Tea Party in name only. The point I am trying to make in this blog is that we are in for a very hard fight. We cannot accept and support weasels like Romney and expect them to do what is right.
