The Tea Party movement is composed of average American citizens who simply decided to point out the fiscal ineptitude of their elected politicians. Why? Perhaps it’s because most of the politically ideological driven sheep-like citizenry of America have allowed politicians to kick the can, finger-point, and name call their way into office, while using our tax dollars to buy reelection. Apparently, the mainstream media has abdicated it’s once cherished role as “watchdog” and have become nothing more than a mouthpiece for the statist policies of Washington’s political elite. The citizens of America are as responsible as the politicians for the fiscal train-wreck that has befallen our great country because we have allowed ourselves to become uninformed. Since most Americans are too complacent and caught up in their own lives to educate themselves as to why D.C. politics has become detrimental to the sovereignty of our country, a force was needed to combat the apparent European-style socialist driven policies that are responsible for the impending financial crisis. A group of informed citizens was needed to act as a firewall to slow down and eventually stop this mad race to implement “The American Financial Insanity Act”, which serves to enslave future generations with unmanageable and perpetual debt.
The Tea Party formed as the voice of fiscal sanity, constitutional government and maximum individual liberty. Contrary to media blather, members of the Tea Party movement have became a needed voice of reason in American politics, a voice in opposition to endless government spending and growth. They have demanded politicians stop using tax increases to continue to grow the federal government and debt. The Tea Party wants to see an end to irresponsibility, unaccountability and the increasing level of corruption in government we now see, a government driven by a progressive ideology from both the Republican and Democrat parties. The Tea Party movement brought to the forefront these issues and have revealed the fraud on both sides of the political spectrum, and seeks to expose those who benefit from the corrupt system. The political elite’s game of “shadow-play” is now out in the open, and they don’t like it one bit.
