RIP Andrew Breitbart – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Andrew Breitbart has died.  He was 43 years old.

 The cause of death has not been released and honestly it is none of our business.  The fact he is gone is bad enough.

 Andrew Breitbart was an unbelievable personality.  He has been described as an author, publisher, and entrepreneur. 

 He could also be described as fearless and in some ways, the wild man of the conservative movement. 

 He was famous for being very willing to mix it up with liberals.  In 2010, at the massive Tea Party Express rally in Searchlight Nevada, when union thugs threw eggs at the Tea Party Express bus and other cars, Breitbart went into the union crowd, refusing to back down and daring them to do something to him.   Less than a month ago, he was at CPAC and when the Occupy protestors decided to act like the fools they are, Breitbart was the guy who went outside and confronted them. 

 I met him two years ago, when we did the National Tea Party convention.  Breitbart was someone who early on recognized the value of the event, even more than we did.  He reached out and helped in a number of ways.  He never asked for anything in return.

 There was a point where the convention almost failed.  Some leftist groups were working hard to make the convention fail, thinking it would embarrass the movement. 

 At one of the most crucial moments, we reached out to him and he went above and beyond the call of duty to do something that saved the convention.  Perhaps one day the entire story will be told but the bottom line is he did not have to but he did.

 Not everyone agreed with him on a lot of issues.  I certainly did not.

 But today is not a day to talk about past differences and past fights.

 Breitbart relished fighting those who would destroy this great country.

 He loved this country, he loved what he was doing and he was an amazing patriot.

 Rest in Peace.


I see stupid people – Tea Party Nation

I see stupid people – Tea Party Nation.

I see stupid people.

Washington DC is full of stupid people. Not everyone in DC is stupid. Just a majority.

This evening, as I was leaving CPAC, a late model mini-van was in front of me and it has a bumper sticker on the back of it that said, “Healthcare for all, not for profit.”

That is liberalism for you. It is nothing more than a soundbite and a stupid soundbite at that.

Liberals hate profit, for reasons that simply cannot be explained except by a catastrophic failure of intelligence.

I would love to debate one of these liberals who think that profit, particularly in the healthcare industry is a bad thing. Let’s start with the medical personnel. Do Doctors go to med school to help the world? Possibly but a six figure income is also a strong inducement. Nurses go to nursing school to help people but also to make a good living. The same is true for technicians.

Let’s ask the same liberal, do you want the highest paid doctor working on you or the lowest paid? I want the highest paid, since our society rewards excellence with money. The guy who is the lowest paid is probably the worst doctor.

Speaking of which, suppose we took the profit motive out of medicine. Let’s cut the wages of doctors down to minimum wage. What kind of doctors would we end up with? Would you want that doctor working on you?

What about those great medicines we have? We have medicines today that 10 or 20 years ago did not exist and are considered miraculous today. Why? Because a pharmaceutical company took a risk, invested billions into a medicine and now makes a profit from that medicine.

What about those incredible medical devices we have now? Thirty years ago, an appendectomy meant a major abdominal incision. Now, most of the time it can be done with robotic tools. Why do we have them? Because companies can make a profit developing these tools and selling them.

Are liberals really that dumb?

In a word, yes.

Liberals want to give us a profit-less health care system.

Is that bad? Well let’s look at the kind of system liberals think we should have. In England, they have the National Health Service. People wait months for appointments. In some parts of Britain, people are forced to pull their own teeth because of a shortage of dentists. As a cost cutting measure, instead of washing sheets between patient use, the NHS is just going to turn the sheets inside out.

Perhaps the person driving that minivan should have had a hypocrisy bumper sticker next to their silly liberal healthcare bumper sticker.

Who knows what this person did. They probably worked for the government. What ever it is, do you think they worked because they get a good salary. Ooops, there is that evil profit again. This time it is personal profit.

Have you ever noticed all of these liberals who complain about profit, yet they enjoy the benefits of personal profit? Have you seen the “Occu-tards” with their designer clothes, their REI tents and sleeping bags, their IPhones, Ipads and laptops? Someone made money to pay for those items.


There is that evil profit word again.

Liberals love to spend other people’s money. They also hate profit. As long as it is other people’s profits they are railing against.

People like that are unfortunately, all over Washington DC.

I see stupid people.
