Tea Party Patriots it is time to decide what you stand for! Samual Adams and the “Sons of Liberty” decided, and tossed the tea in the harbor forever changing history. The Tea Party revolution that has swept our country over the last two years is a re-awakening of the Goldwater/Reagan/and Contract with America conservative giant that believes the Constitution with it’s checks and balances prevents an overpowering government from overwhelming a docile electorate. This conservative heritage believes that a small, limited government should live within it’s means and that personal innovation and responsibility should propel our free market system to continued growth and prosperity for all.
Yet, that view, has been tainted by “half patriots” that say they believe in smaller government and the conservative cause unless it infringes on my belief system in relation to group social activities. Does any government regardless of size have the right to demand behavior, demand compliance, or demand attitudes? Our freedoms are not government ordained or controlled; so, if we believe in that proposition how can we support government participation in our lives? Do we believe that besides the unalienable rights divinely given, that the government must supplement these rights with new authorized rights for education, housing, livelihood, choice, food, etc. If we believe the latter we are indeed what Samual Adams called “half patriots” that only believe in half of a constitution and twice the government. What do you believe Tea Party Patriot? Are you a full patriot that says personal responsibility will carry us to a confidence in our ability to succeed; while caring for the misfortunate through our non-governmental social organizations”
Where are you Tea Party Patriot concerning your view of the free market system that cares not for success or failure; but allows the natural course based on performance to determine that success or failure. Are you a “half patriot” that stands strong unless it affects my life? Should my life be given a bailout from the government? Where do you stand Tea Party Patriots.
Tea Party Patriots do you believe that the protection of our nation from foes foreign and domestic is the prime role of government? Or do you believe that our national sovereignty is not at stake when our borders are not secure. Are we a nation of law or are we a nation of “half patriots” allowing for global countenance and activism to overwhelm our economy, our borders, and our lives. Samual Adams asked these same questions of his “colonial patriots” and politicians; when they wavered, he and his “son’s of Liberty” held them all accountable. We Tea Party Patriots can do no lessthan truly demand limited government in all aspects of our life; demand fiscal responsibility even if it effects us; and demand that our borders are secured regardless of personal consequences.
