Bachmann on Marriage

Posted by courage On June - 26 - 2011

Okay here we go.. first allow me to say, I like Representative Michele Bachmann.  Continually I have seen her stand against big government and a return to Constitutional reasoning.  All of which fly in face of her most recent policy position on suggesting a Constitutional amendment which defines marriage as being between a man and woman.  I can’t help but wonder who slipped her socialist Kool-Aid when she wasn’t looking?  Socialist in the sense that her beliefs supersede common sense and  a purist recognition as to what the fundamental concepts of the Constitution are about.

What exactly is the Constitution for?  Well, if you’re Barack Obama it’s chuck full of negative liberties, a.k.a rights granted the America people through our humanity by God.  Which according to the Obama world prevent him from creating the socialist Utopia which in theory may sound all comfy cozy but in the reality hasn’t worked ANYWHERE in the world.  That’s is why he believes it to be  negative.

Now enter Michele Bachmann, given her recent stated policy position, she must believe the Constitution is for constructing society according to her religious beliefs.  Sure she tries to wiggle around it by stating:

…it’s also up to the states to decide whether they permit same-sex marriage.

What Constitutional authority does the federal government have in defining marriage?  Wait Bachmann answers that with..

After all, the family is the fundamental unit of government.

How is the family a fundamental unit of government?  Seriously, isn’t that what aspects of the Tea Party are rallying against; intrusive government in to the very intimate fabrics of our lives?  If Bachmann believes the family and government are intimately tied together then how can she  rationalize her belief  that Obamacare should be repealed?   I mean come on, a healthy family and all should also benefit the government?  Just how exactly are the family and government tied together?  Outside of the abuse of children in the family unit, the government should have NO say as to what the family does.

Ronald Reagan: On His 100th Birthday

Posted by courage On February - 6 - 2011

“A Time For Choosing” – The speech Ronald Reagan gave on behalf of Sen. Barry Goldwater’s presidential campaign. Sen. Goldwater did not prevail, but this speech launched Mr. Reagan’s political career.

In three years, he was Governor Ronald Reagan.

I was only six at the time of this speech in 1964.  The sentiments Reagan spoke then ring true today and has me wondering,”have we not learned?”

If you have never heard this entire speech, take 30 minutes of your time and listen. Are not many of the thoughts Reagan expressed, while backing Goldwater, not the same principles which fueled the advent of the Tea Party and the Patriot movement?

Frontpage names the TEA PARTY the Person of the Year

Posted by courage On January - 2 - 2011

From Frontpage:

Over the past few years, while atrophy of the welfare state system has spurred violent protests in Western Europe, the United States has experienced a parallel, but remarkably distinct phenomenon. In early 2009, desperate Greeks rioted in the streets to demand that their overextended government do more for them in the face of financial crisis. Americans, at the same time, rallied across the nation for their government to do less. More than any one individual alone in 2010, this movement, the Tea Party movement, wrought tremendous change over the political landscape, realizing a historic election and revitalizing the American zeitgeist. The title of FrontPage Magazine’s Person of the Year, therefore, must be bestowed collectively on these individuals, the formidable torchbearers of our beloved liberty and prosperity.

Two days after the newly-elected President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (the stimulus bill) into law February 19th, the Tea Party movement found its voice — in the unlikeliest of places. A little-known CNBC analyst, Rick Santelli, embarked on a spontaneous rant while delivering a market forecast live on air. His harangue was precipitated by the federal government’s decision to stem the 2009 housing and financial crisis with a series of unprecedented “bailouts” for Wall Street and the banking industry, financed by taxpayer revenue. “How many of you people want to pay for your neighbor’s mortgage, that has an extra bathroom and can’t pay their bills?” Santelli wailed, turning to the gallery of traders on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade. The crowd jeered. “President Obama, are you listening?” Apparently, he was not. Santelli proceeded to flippantly claim he was considering organizing a “Chicago Tea Party” to protest government spending and the apparent collectivization of wealth.

Tea Party Nation is a Sham Patriot Organization

Posted by courage On December - 12 - 2010

I take issue with the Tea Party Nation, the self-imposed grand poobah
Judson Phillips seeks to dilute attention away from Patriots laser sharp
focus of fiscal responsibility to include social issues.
I would suggest that Tea Party Patriots have been so successful in
informing the populace of the shenanigans being perpetrate on the
American people because of its clear focus on fiscal responsibility and
its call for Constitutional adherence by elected officials. The wave
of support for the Tea Party Movement continues to grow, according to
Rasmussen in October 41% of polled eligible voters view the Tea Party
movement favorably with 47% stating the movement is good for the
country. For a movement whose birth was less than 2 years ago, these
numbers are astounding.

The Perpetual Candidate Syndrome: Mark Leyva

Posted by courage On April - 29 - 2010

Political operatives are always on the look-out for methods to increase their exposure.  The perpetual is a candidate disconnected with voters. They present themselves as the one thing they are not… electable.  Since one particular candidate has chosen to “go public” with his self-appointed leadership position of the Lake County Tea Party, the time has come to examine and shake out what is the driving factor behind the missteps, inconsistencies and character behind Mark Leyva.  After turning Mark Leyva upside-down, it is interesting to see what shakes out.
