Tea Parties: A Force To Be Reckoned With

by Sal on July 28, 2009

When the Tea Parties first became a major force on Tax Day, April 15, many hoped (myself included) that the movement would have legs and become a force to champion the cause of limited, Conservative government based on the principles of our founding documents.  In the three months since the initial, nationwide Tax Day Tea Parties, the movement has become a force to be reckoned with.  No issue makes this more apparent than the current health care debate.

Last week, Acorn organized several protests in support of health care, but were overwhelmed and significantly outnumbered by  counter protests from Tea Parties.  Yesterday, a town hall held by Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), was overrun by Tea Party activists.  In a meeting that was expected to draw about 100 people, hundreds of Tea Party activists showed up.  Gateway Pundit has pictures and video of the event, two of which are below:

Keep the pressure up.  This is real “change” in action.

I participated the Trenton Tax Day Tea Party and the Middletown Independence Day Tea Party and I can say with certainty that there were no weak-kneed fair-weather patriots at those protests. It was excellent to behold.

Since the Left doesn’t understand principle when the concept of power is at stake, it’s not surprising that they have completely misread the movement and the mood of the country which it represents. The Tea Party folks are a fiesty bunch who feel threatened by people in Congress and in the White House who are moving too fast, without deliberation, and in the face of our basic founding principles in order to promote an agenda THEY DID NOT RUN ON in the Fall.

In a sense, the Tea Parties are a purely American reaction to the un-American actions coming out of Washington and I’m glad Congress is being exposed to that.
