2017 Protests & The Tea Party of 2008

Memories: I participated in the Tea Party Protests of 2008 & 2009. I assisted in the initial spontaneous citizen dialogue using the internet to articulate what it was that was bubbling up from the gut of people across this nation. I wish I had saved my comments from those days for my grand children to read today.

I wish I had saved my comments from those days for my grand children to read today. When ones American values are being violated is when the gut begins to speak so ones mind and spirit will stop and listen. My values were defined in the Declaration of Independence the founding document for the Constitution – I realized our national leaders had been long straying from the vision of self governess and the creation of new form of government called a Republic when democracy was recognized as a real threat to liberty, freedom and the rights of the people.

I willingly marched on Washington D.C., hosted a local rally and spoke at several others. I probably still have the talks I gave. And no one got paid for what they did.

The Main Stream Media can not fool me with the fake news of yesterday or today. Back then Tea Party protesters were called many names by many of the elected elite of both parties and the main stream media joined in with the powerful – Tea Party = “extremist”, “racist”, “homophobes”, “Nazis” and many more. Tea Party folks showed up at national and state Republican and Democratic Town Hall meetings. No discrimination there = both parties were guilty. And we had many outstanding black and espanic Tea Party supporters. Tea Party folks recognized the federal government was no longer representing the people within either party. Tea Party folks didn’t just whine and complain they worked, organized and offered real solutions which any citizen of party or affiliation was welcome to read.

The hatred expressed by some toward the Tea Party movement made me realize our nation was and is still suffering from a sickness caused by the lust for power and control.When the Tea Party marched on Washington D.C. the capital was cleaner than when they came and no one got hurt or property destroyed.

Compare what is taking place today where people destroy property, beat people up, yell and scream, some are even being paid to shut other voices down in an effort to create an image of unrest yet they offer no solutions and seem bent on attacking only a single party.

When ones American values are being violated is when the gut begins to speak so ones mind and spirit will stop and listen. My values were defined in the Declaration of Independence the founding document for the Constitution – I realized our national leaders had been long straying (almost all of my life) from the vision of self governess and the creation of new form of government called a Republic where democracy was recognized as a real threat to liberty, freedom and the rights of the people.

So many young folks don’t know our nations history and are easily influenced by the creation of an image that may not be true!

The hatred expressed by some toward the Tea Party movement made me realize our nation was and is still suffering from a sickness caused by the great sin of lust and greed for power and control.
