Inspiration and Tea Parties

Aug 8, 2009 at 8:59 PM
Many people I know have been attending tea party demonstrations. I have not personally attended one, and am not sure whether I would. But it's moot, because I have children too young. I believe that mothers with small children should never make their kids attend anything they don't fully understand. Children shold not be at either anti-abortion or gay rights protests - I don't care about the political view being expressed - only the informed and thoughtfully inclined should march in protest. And children have usually not formed their own beliefs on these things just yet.

I was disturbed to see that the tea parties are so very underplayed in the press, per what they've said about attendance. Thousands expressed as hundreds, hundreds pared down to dozens, dozens not even getting mentioned.

There is no corporate agenda and no political gain in true freedom - hence the media ignoring it. What a shamefully bought and sold society we live in. Every single politico and every single corporation has sold their soul to a single devil - money - for different ends.

Anyway, here's a commercial for the tea parties, and I find it inspiring, as I am a proud American patriot - but not like most. I am neither Republican or Democrat. I suppose I believe in the Republic in it's original form, and always have. Libertarian without the druggie agenda, Constitutionalist without the religious fervor.

So here goes. I love this for reminding me that despite the mess, this country always does fight for what it believes in. And that we do hold on to our beliefs no matter what in this country.



Any action wherein the cause of individual liberties can be forwarded without violence or coup is a good thing. These protests are neither coup nor violent. I cannot imagine why anyone would be opposed to them. They are merely an assemblage to express outrage at the risks being taken - the debts we are incurring now will eventually pull the foundation of principles right out from under the feet of our nation.

And it seems to me that WHETHER OR NOT YOU ARE OUTRAGED depends entirely on WHETHER OR NOT YOU BELIEVE THIS COUNTRY WAS FOUNDED ON ETHICAL PRINCIPLES.

And that is the basic difference between an American and a Patriot.

    I got plenty of comments about this, really I did. But they were all over at Facebook. Is my blog doomed to fail because of FB taking over? Argh.
