national debt

To Tea Party America, I need to get something off my chest so let me start by saying that I am a Mitt Romney supporter and a former member of the Tea Party. I am also a strong social, fiscal and foreign policy conservative and am not wishy-washy on any of these core principles.
I believe in a strong America with sovereign borders and the rule of law, I believe in the sanctity of marriage, and I believe in protecting innocent unborn life.

But why are we even talking about a tea party and what happened that we even needed to rebel against our own government?

We were BAMBOOZLED, that's why !  After a collapse of the banking system and a disastrous recession for many, the Democrats were swept into power, the were led by a charismatic and inexperienced Community Organizer named Barrack Hussein Obama, whose call for hope and change connected with the majority of the American people giving him a chance to really do something great and historic for this country.

Pres. Barack Obama
But this adoration for President Obama did not last long as he and the Democratic controlled House and Senate started their Socialist experiment on an unsuspecting American people who simply wanted things to get better. President Obama and the Democrats went on a spending spree like no other in the history of this country, starting with a budget busting and unwanted Obama Health Care mandate to the almost 800 billion stimulus package that did not work. He and the Democrats continued the insult by giving billions of dollars in loans to crony green companies while raising the national debt to critical status, forcing a downgrade of our Triple A Bond ratings while getting us closer to a bankrupted economy.

People all around America were losing their jobs, inflation was starting to hit the grocery shelves, their bank accounts cleaned out and many were losing their homes, all this while their President, ignorant of their plight kept on spending. While the country was burning President Obama was often found on the golf course and many times he would take his family around the world on lavish family vacations costing millions to the already suffering national debt. We were being abused and ignored!

Rick Santelli
 Then one obscure morning in one of his scheduled spots, CNBC analyst Rick Santelli goes hog wild with an on-air attack against President Obama's government bailouts of banks, car companies and in trouble debt mortgage holders using tax payer money, during his rant Santelli called for a modern-day Boston Tea Party, this not only got a unanimous applause from the trading floor, but gave the name and the mythical birth of the modern day Tea Party.

The thought of a Tea Party was growing and coming to fruition, it was going to represent a huge block of dissatisfied and very angry Americans who felt that they were being used and ignored.
We had folks from all walks of life, we had  http://evelio-perez.blogspot.com/  and people from all ages, races and religions, we finally have had enough and were ready to fight to get our country back.
The true beauty of this great idea was that it had no leaders, it was a true grassroots movement of desperate people calling for true representation in our government.

But something happened on the way to saving this country, some self-proclaimed leaders of the Tea Party have decided to purify the movement and start defining their own ideals of their perfect America.
The Tea Party movement as good as it was going, was slowly starting to be taken over by the new holier than thou pretenders.

One of these groups, Freedom Works decided that first victim of their cleansing would be the "Mormon" Mitt Romney, his religion was just so un-Christian and evil that he just didn't belong, so they promoted anti-Romney rallies, branded him a Liberal and a flip-flopper with the ultimate goal to destroy the good name of this good and decent man.
In their infinite wisdom to define their vision for their new Tea Party, they not only made the Republican front-runner Mitt Romney, Persona Non-Grata but managed to alienate, ostracize and insult almost half of the original and authentic Tea Partiers and Romney supporters, they have literally told them to go take a hike.

But for Pete's sakes, why aren't we going after the people that are hell bent on destroying our way of life, are they not our real enemy?
Why are some of you trying to destroy The Tea Party movement that we all believed in?

Some self described leaders of The Tea Party Organizations like Freedom WorksRed State,  Free Republic, along with leading conservative talk show hosts like Rush LimbaughGlenn Beck and Mark Levin have begun defining to their millions of listeners who should belong to this very elite group. One of these groups ( Red State ) have gone as far as to ban Mitt Romney supporters from giving their opinion on their web page!

So let me get this straight, according to these people,  Mitt Romney is a Flip-Flopper and a Liberal...... OK, then let's see who the leaders of the New Tea Party are promoting to be their CONSERVATIVE champion for the Presidency of The United States.

1) Herman Cain, an accused sexual harasser of women with absolutely no clue on foreign affairs........Really?

2) Rick Perry, former Democrat who helped run Al Gore's Texas Gore for President campaign and the darling of the anti- illegal immigration crowd. who defended and still defends college tuition for illegals,  Perry also tried to force vaccine innoculations on 12 year old girls........Really?

Newt and Nancy, Really?
Where's Waldo?
3) Newt Gingrich, former Nancy Pelosi partner in the Global Warming scamsupported Obama Care and a  Health Care mandate since 2005, he is the only Speaker of the House to have been disciplined for ethics violations Gingrich began an affair with House of Representatives staffer while he was married to wife number two.  ...............Really?

Ron Paul, Isolationist
4) Ron Paul, a 9/11 truther, and foreign affairs isolationist, anti- Semitewould allow Iran to acquire nuclear weapons.......... Really?

5) John Huntsman, was President Obama's Chinese ambassador, and was for a universal health care mandate before he was against it...... .... ( never mind )

6) Rick Santorum, endorsed Sen. Arlen Specter and later endorsed Mitt Romney for President back in 2007......... Really?

Bachmann hiding at gay rally
7) Michelle Bachmann was a conservative darling before she talked her way out of front-runner  status.... Really?

8) Tim Pawlenty, a strong fiscal and social conservative, once considered a front-runner now not only endorses Romney but is co-chairman of the Romney campaign.

9) Chris Christie, The Tea Party faithful were begging and screaming for the Governor to get in the race, but he decided against it and enthusiastically endorsed Mitt Romney..........Yes really! 

So let's sum it all up, the new Tea Party would rather back an inexperienced accused sexual harasser, a womanizer, an isolationist and an anti-Semite, a former Al Gore Democrat, a global warming and an Obama Care advocate,  all who have proven to be major flip-floppers throughout their political careers, over a true conservative Mormon of whom CNN"s Pierce Morgan called the cleanest politician in America?  Really?

I have been stunned and bewildered by the drastic actions of this once proud organization on one of its own, their backstabbing attacks on our preferred candidate has hit us hard, hit us fast and hit us under the belt........... bottom line, none of us deserved this.
As I write this I feel ashamed and betrayed and have come to the realization that the Tea Party no longer speaks for me. Some of you have become a scourge and an embarrassment to true conservatives who still believe in good moral and ethical values.
Instead of gaining status and respect with conservatives, you are losing the battle for the minds of the average American who can see bigotry when it's right in front of them.
This was never about what a few of you wanted, it was about what we all wanted and somewhere down that path, some of you lost your way.
So it's your party and you don't want us to come?  O.K. we won't,  but just don't expect us to come back when you need us........... Romney / 2012
