For anybody who still doesn’t realize what happened across America on November the 2nd, 2010 let me first say that you saw what millions of Americans called TEA Party members could do when they chose to get involved in politics.
To all of us who have been or are involved in TEA Party Groups across America, we know what happened in 2010 and what will happen again in 2014.
It’s no secret Americans of all ages and colors have had enough of the same old, same old way of doing business in Washington, DC and at our State Capitols. The gridlock there is hurting ALL of us regardless of what political party we belong to.
We the people are who the Politicians that we elect work for. Make no mistake, for those of you who don’t understand or don’t vote, we the people vote them into office and we the people vote them out of office when they’re not doing a good job.
The new group of City, County, State and Federal candidates that were voted in in 2010 will be one of the most scrutinized group ever. This will continue again in 2014.
The American people, TEA Party Groups, various other Patriotic Groups and the World will be watching to see how we deal with our Economic problems including our Budget Deficit. What we do here in the USA could become the model for the rest of the World who is dealing with the same things we are.
Everybody knows we live and deal with a Global Economy and as the USA goes, so goes Europe, Asia, South America and the rest of the World. We have just seen an example of what is wrong in Washington, DC. The ‘my way or the highway’ mentality of a few, the ‘old guard’ is another example of the problem we have in America today.
Now let me address some of the pressing issues the TEA Party will be watching. First of all, the Budget Deficit.
It is part of the TEA Party platform to bring the Federal Deficit as well as State Deficit’s in line. Candidate’s were elected in 2010 who said they would do just that. Candidates running in 2014 had better agree to do the same or they won’t get elected.
It is also part of the TEA Party platform to deal with Illegal Immigration and not ‘fast track’ or use Amnesty to deal with it. The general consensus of the TEA Party movement is if you’re here illegally, you’re here illegally and if we allow you to stay, you go to the end of the longest line or you go home, take your choice.
Illegal Immigration can be contributed to being the # 1 reason for Medicaid and many of our State Budgets being out of whack because the large number of Illegal Aliens are costing the State’s and our Country billions of dollars they can least afford to spend.
One of the main reasons California is so hopelessly in debt is because the Illegal Aliens there are depleting funds needed by the State Government just to pay their State Employees which also include EMS, Firefighters, Police, Teachers and more.
This must stop!
If you take a look at the TEA Party’s “Contract From America,” it tells you all you need to know about the TEA Party’s position in 2014 and beyond.
Here are the 10 Key points of “The Contract From America”:
1) Protect The Constitution and Reject Cap & Trade
2) Demand a Balanced Budget
3) Enact Fundamental Tax Reform
4) Restore Fiscal Responsibility
5) Constitutionally Limited Government
6) End Runaway Government Spending
7) Defund, Repeal or Replace Government Run Health Care
8) Pass an “All of the Above” Energy Policy
9) Stop The Earmarks and the Pork
10) Stop the Tax Hikes
All of these 10 points are a common sense start to the problems faced by America that MUST be dealt with by the new Congress in 2015. Just look at the huge mess that’s been created by the rollout of Obamacare and the website to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars and still counting.
If the Congress fails to deal with the business of “we the people,” the TEA Party and Americans from both sides of the aisle will once again vote them out and start over by putting people in elected office that will do the business of “we the people.”
The TEA Party Movement isn’t going anywhere! It has in fact gotten stronger with many new TEA Party Groups springing up all across America preparing for the 2014 Election where we will once again elect a new Congress.
Let it be said once again loudly and clearly that for those Politicians who do not get the message being sent to them by America and the TEA Party Groups, “You either do the job you were elected to do or we vote you out!”
That’s the American Way, it’s what the Constitution guarantees us and that’s exactly what the power of the American TEA Party Movement is all about. “We the people are the bosses of the Politicians we elect.”
God Bless America and all those who defend, protect and serve her in our Armed Forces keeping all of us free and safe...
