Another failure of liberalism – Tea Party Nation.

Liberals like to scream about the causes of poverty.  As with everything else they scream about, they cannot get their facts right.

 

 Poverty is not caused by racism or injustice.  It is caused by government policies.   One of the biggest root causes of poverty is the government policies that create fatherless families.

 

 From the Washington Times:

 

 Nicole Hawkins‘ three daughters have matching glittery boots, but none has the same father. Each has uniquely colored ties in her hair, but none has a dad present in her life.

 

As another single mother on Sumner Road decked her row-house stoop with Christmas lights and a plastic Santa, Ms. Hawkins recalled that her middle child’s father has never spent a holiday or birthday with her. In her neighborhood in Southeast Washington, 1 in 10 children live with both parents, and 84 percent live with only their mother.

 

In every state, the portion of families where children have two parents, rather than one, has dropped significantly over the past decade. Even as the country added 160,000 families with children, the number of two-parent households decreased by 1.2 million. Fifteen million U.S. children, or 1 in 3, live without a father, and nearly 5 million live without a mother. In 1960, just 11 percent of American children lived in homes without fathers.

 

America is awash in poverty, crime, drugs and other problems, but more than perhaps anything else, it all comes down to this, said Vincent DiCaro, vice president of the National Fatherhood Initiative: Deal with absent fathers, and the rest follows.

 

People “look at a child in need, in poverty or failing in school, and ask, ‘What can we do to help?’ But what we do is ask, ‘Why does that child need help in the first place?’ And the answer is often it’s because [the child lacks] a responsible and involved father,” he said.

 

 

 

 The government policies that liberals champion have created an expressway to poverty.   In the inner city, women with three, four or five children all with different fathers is not uncommon.   The women don’t care if they get pregnant.  After all, the government is there to give them money.  The men just want to be able to have sex with a woman without the commitment of marriage.   Unfortunately, the welfare programs in this nation encourage illegitimacy and punish the creation of families.

 

 The simple truth is, one of the fastest ways to avoid poverty is not to have children until you are married and stay married once you have children.

 

 That truth is so simple, even a liberal should be able to understand it.

 

Nightmare on Election Day. – Tea Party Nation

Nightmare on Election Day. – Tea Party Nation.

We all love scary movies.  Almost everyone loves a good scare.  The joy of scary movies is that we may be frightened at the movie, but at least at the end we can walk out of the theater unharmed.

 As Americans go to the polls, perhaps we should take a look at the scary movie that would be a second Obama term. 

 How bad will it be?

 It is almost a certainty we would look back to the good old days where we only had 8% unemployment.  With new taxes and overwhelming regulation, business would be choked.   With continued printing of money, with so-called “Quantitative easing,” inflation will rear its head. 

 With Obamacare fully implemented, Americans will start seeing shortages of doctors.  Wait times and health care rationing will make their appearances before the end of Obama’s second term. 

 The American dream of owning your own home will be nothing but a fantasy for millions of Americans.   Between Obama’s uncontrolled spending and the ballooning costs of Obamacare, our deficit will be significantly over $20 trillion.  Not only will more money be spent on lavish welfare benefits and Obamacare, insolvent blue states, such as California and Illinois will be bailed out at a cost of trillions.    All of that money will be borrowed.

 At that level, despite the best efforts of the Fed, America will no longer be able to borrow money at the historically low interest rates America has in the past.  Interest rates in America will skyrocket.  This will consume even more of the federal budget, just to service the debt.

 The skyrocketing interest rates will make it impossible for all but the very rich or well connected to get reasonable mortgages.  It will also destroy much of the ability of businesses to borrow to buy equipment and grow.

 As Obama rolls into his second term, his EPA will fulfill Obama’s promise not only to bankrupt any new coal-fired power plants but will bankrupt the existing ones.  Unemployment will skyrocket in coal producing areas.  Without the coal fired plants, power costs will skyrocket for Americans. 

 Skyrocketing energy prices will devastate an already weak economy.  For many Americans, especially in hot areas, such as the South, air-conditioning will become a luxury.    In many areas, energy will become so expensive that the only option will be some form of rationing, such as rolling blackouts. 

 While Americans swelter in the summer heat, those Americans still lucky enough to have a job, will dream of the days when they could take vacations.  They will look back longingly at the days of George W. Bush when gas was $1.80 a gallon or even the days of the first Obama term, where on election day 2012, gas was only $3.29 a gallon.   Gas prices will soar to $7 or $8 a gallon and most of that will be imported.

 As Barack Obama leaves office at the end of his second term, the new President will be the first president elected to the post-superpower era of America.

 Because of pressures on the budget and Obama’s priorities, the military will be a hollow shell of what it once was.  The Navy will be unable to project power into both the Atlantic and Pacific at the same time.  Many nations will now have Air Forces and Armies larger than America’s military and for the first time since World War II, some of these militaries will be better equipped.

 America will also be the first superpower to unilaterally disarm itself of nuclear weapons, opening the door to aggression from even second-rate powers.

 This is Obama’s America if he gets a second term.

 Fortunately this nightmare can be avoided.  We can walk out of this theater, only scared of what the future might have been. 

 But first, we must vote Obama out of office.

 Any other outcome truly is a nightmare.

Getting it right! – Tea Party Nation

Sometimes even liberals get it right.

 

John Hickenlooper is the liberal Democrat Governor of Colorado.  As you might guess, he was booked on the news shows today to talk about the massacre in Aurora Colorado.

 

The question was raised, how do you prevent tragedies like the Aurora massacre from happening.

 

You would expect a liberal like Hickenlooper to come back with the standard politically correct answer that more gun control laws were needed.

 

Instead, he surprised everyone.

 

From Newsmax:

 

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said no law could have prevented suspect James Holmes from carrying out the act of terror that rocked an Aurora movie theater early Friday morning and left 12 dead.

 

“This person, if there were no assault weapons available, if there were no this or no that, this guy’s going to find something. Right? He’s going to know how to create a bomb. Who knows where his mind would have gone. Clearly a very intelligent individual however twisted. That’s the problem, this is a human issue in some profound way,” Hickenlooper said during an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

 

“The people around him had no idea that this was something he was capable of,” said Hickenlooper.

 

“How do you prevent this?” Hickenlooper asked host Candy Crowley.” “How do we preserve our freedoms…and all those things that define this country, and yet try to prevent something like this [from] happening? Let me tell you, there’s no easy answer. There isn’t.”

 

The governor described the suspect as a “deeply troubled, twisted, delusional person.”

 

“I am speechless,” he said. “I can’t conceive of a motive. In a funny way, this guy is a terrorist, right? For whatever twisted reasons that we can barely even imagine, he wanted to create terror. He wanted to put fear in people’s lives.

 

 

Hickenlooper is absolutely right about that.  Aurora Colorado has very restrictive gun laws.  That did not stop the shooter.  The movie theater had a no guns policy.  That did not stop the shooter.

 

What if Aurora Colorado had the most draconian gun control laws in America?  That still would not have stopped this guy. 

 

What would have happened if you could have actually kept guns out of this guys hands?  The tragedy still would have happened.  He just would have chosen a different method.

 

Look at his apartment.  According to the police it was very thoroughly booby trapped.  He had created explosive devices and managed to do so without raising any red flags. 

 

Think about this for a second.  Here we are in the post 9/11 world, with the Department of Homeland Security and this guy is able to build some pretty sophisticated bombs and he does not even show up on the radar?

 

If some how we could have denied him access to guns, he would have used another weapon, such as an explosive device.

 

Hickenlooper is correct.  No laws would have stopped this guy.

 

EDITORIAL NOTE:  I still refuse to identify the shooter in Aurora by his name.  The people who should be remembered by name are his victims, not that sick freak.

The arrogance of a man who has built nothing – Tea Party Nation

The arrogance of a man who has built nothing – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

To call Barack Obama arrogant is an understatement.  To call him clueless about the lives of real Americans is the absolute defense of truth. 

 To call his mouth the best friend conservatives may have this year, could be very true.  The arrogant man who has built nothing in his life has now shot off his mouth. 

 What did he say, why is the drive by media so interested in not covering this story and why must conservatives capitalize on it?

 Obama really shot his mouth off when he was speaking at Roanoke, Virginia on Friday.  He said: “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

 Really?

 Obama’s argument is that if it were not for government, none of us would succeed.

 Really?

 What the hell does Barack Obama know about building a business?

 What the hell does he know about building anything?

 The only thing Barack Obama has ever built is a joint. 

 Barack Obama is clueless to the American dream.  Perhaps that has something to do with the fact he is not a real American. 

 He does not understand the desire many real Americans have to create something that will last.  He does not understand that real Americans want to get ahead, making a business a success not only for themselves but also for their children.

 For Obama, everything begins and ends with big government.    Obama does not understand why we do not all want to work for the government.  He does not understand why we do not worship at the altar of big government.  He does not understand why real Americans do not like the government, do not want any more than the minimal amount of government we need to have an ordered society and he does not understand why Americans would sacrifice and fight to be free.

 For Obama, success is not something we earn on merit.  Here is a man who has never earned anything on merit.  Does anyone really believe he got into Columbia or Harvard on merits or his grades?  If you do, you must have been smoking one of Obama’s joints.

 Obama believes success is not something we can do on our own.  It is not that we need government to be successful; we need government’s permission to be successful. 

 That is what makes Obama and the Party of Treason so dangerous to America.  The fundamental rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness do not exist in Obamaland.  They are not rights.  They are grants from the government and the government can revoke them anytime and for any reason. 

 Obama will never consciously tell us what he really thinks.  But a lot of times, it simply slips out.  To him, small business is the enemy.   Why?  Because small business does not only not need the government, we don’t want the government.  Because 90% of the time, the government is the problem, not the solution.   If government would simply get out of our way, we could make a living without the need for the government to do anything.  We could do what we want without the blessing or permission of the government.

 For Barack Obama, that is a problem and that is why he cannot have a second term.

Independence Day – Tea Party Nation

Independence Day – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

On a hot Summer Day, July 4, 1776 to be exact, a group of men met in Philadelphia.  Each man signed his own name to a document.  In an age of illiteracy, that was unusual enough. 

 

As each man signed, he knew either their great venture would be a success or they had just signed their death warrants.  If they were not considered traitors by the British before this, they certainly were now.

 

Those men may have been the greatest gathering of the greatest men this nation has ever produced.  Their Declaration stands the test of time and unfortunately many of the complaints sounded by those patriots of 246 years ago, sound very familiar today.

 

On the eighty-seventh anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the guns of war fell silent in Pennsylvania.   The dead still lay on the field of battle and General Robert E. Lee retreated from the North as the Civil War turned.  Four months after that battle, Abraham Lincoln traveled to Gettysburg to deliver a few words at the dedication of the Gettysburg cemetery.   

 

While his words were meant as a tribute to those who fell in battle, they live on today as an inspiration and a battle cry for us as we try to cling to our freedom from those who would take it away.

 

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

 

Today as we celebrate our Independence Day, we are called to strive for that new birth of freedom.  It is our solemn duty to make certain, as Lincoln said, that government of the people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the Earth.

 

All of us at Tea Party Nation wish you a Happy 4th of July!

 

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. 
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures. 
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: 
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. 
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. 
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

The poster child for everything wrong with liberals – Tea Party Nation

The poster child for everything wrong with liberals – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

You have probably never heard of Greta Hawkins.   Yet she is a poster child for why liberals should not be allowed in the education system or for that matter any position of importance greater than that of being a Wal-Mart greeter. 

 Hawkins is a principle at a Coney Island School.  She recently banned the playing of the iconic song, “God Bless the USA,” at the School’s June 20th commencement. 

 Why did she do this?

 She did not want to “offend other cultures.”

 Excuse me while we have a winning the future moment.

 She does not want to offend other cultures.   What type of idiocy is that?  Earth to Hawkins.  I hate to tell you this, but you are in America.  It is our culture.  We have the right to be proud of America.   That is clearly something you are not.

 For those mythical people that she believes would be offended by “God bless the USA,” I have one suggestion.  If America offends you, get the hell out. 

 Hawkins is one of those people who hates America and feels we must apologize to everyone for being the greatest nation in the world.  It is clear that her IQ trolls somewhere in the single digit range and she got her job through an affirmative action for idiots program. 

 What is it about liberals that they always hate America?  You can have some nation that is a third world sewer, where mass murder, female mutilation and child rape are the normal course of business and liberals love that nation.  Yet when you start talking about the nation that has done more good for more people than any other any other nation in the history of the world, the left thinks we are the focus of evil in the modern world.

 Here’s an idea for liberals.  Try being proud of your country for a change. 

 Of course that is asking a lot.  Liberals might win the lottery too, but lets not hold our breath.

 Liberals love left wing dictatorships.  Come to think of it, they love any regime that hates liberty, freedom or America.

 Allen West had it right when he said that socialist like Nancy Pelosi should take their socialism and get the hell out of America.

It is time for the UN to go – Tea Party Nation

It is time for the UN to go – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Can someone please tell me what good the UN does?

 Can someone name me one benefit America receives from being not only the host to that band of thugs, dictators and malcontents, but footing far too much of the bill?

 Now, the UN is at it again.  This time it is the RIO conference.  While the diplomats are living it up, many on our tax dollars, they are coming out with an incredible list of demands.

 From Fox News:

 Three weeks before the U.N.-sponsored Rio + 20 summit conference on sustainable development, member countries that  the United States hoped would produce a five-page summary of goals are instead haggling over a mammoth  grab-bag of demands for new planetary regulation and assertions that  industrialized countries, led by the U.S., should  pay for, among other things, an unprecedented and massively expensive transfer of technology and funds to the developing world.

At one point, the text being debated by hundreds of negotiators climbed to 171 pages  before being cut back by executive fiat to 86 pages—only to start climbing steeply again.

The unwieldy document covers everything from sustainable food strategies to codes of corporate responsibility to technology transfers—on highly favorable terms—to developing countries. Copies of the document are not being made publicly available.

The emergency  bargaining session was intended as a last-ditch effort to bring some focus, energy and concision to the text after previous scheduled meetings led only to the current, bloated document.

“We were hoping it would inspire people, get them interested in the issues writ large,” a senior State Department official told Fox News. “ Right now, it’s just a long list of everybody’s projects, which is less valuable. “

The haggling over what will be said at the end of the three day Rio + 20 meeting, which starts on June 21 in Brazil, does not bode well for the summit, which U.N. organizers hope will  inaugurate not only a radical overhaul of the world economy but a new and still unspecified era of “global environmental governance.”

 Global governance?  What the hell are they passing out down there, crack for them to smoke?

 The UN is made up of such sterling members as Iran, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Zimbabwe and Belarus.  Most of the members of the United Nations are dictatorship and we are even going to give them anything?

 Don’t even give them the time of day.

 The United Nations continues to be a very expensive joke on the United States.  If these third world countries want to be prosperous, they should do what we do.  They should have free markets, free elections and allow liberty and freedom.  Instead you have such distinguished nations as Egypt, which promotes female circumcision. 

 It would be nice if one of our politicians had the cojones to stand up and tell the UN to go pound sand.  Obama want because he wants us to become one of those socialist countries where liberty is on the endangered species list.  Romney isn’t any better on this front.  It would be nice to have just one major leader stand up and tell the United Nations to go to hell.

Broken Education: A threat to National Security. – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Can we call the writer of this report “Captain Obvious?”

 Let’s see.  There are a couple of things everyone agrees on.  First our public education system is broken beyond belief and second it is an economic threat to America, a financial threat to America and a national security threat to America.

 From Fox News:

 A new report finds that the United States’ education system is putting the country’s national security at risk.

 The independent study, sponsored by The Council on Foreign Relations, finds K-12 school systems across the country are failing to adequately prepare kids to grow up and protect the U.S.

 “For starters, we don’t have nearly enough people who are capable in the STEM fields: science, technology, engineering and math,” said former Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings, a member of the council’s task force that wrote the report, titled “U.S. Education Reform and National Security.”

 “When we think about the modern world of defense,” Spellings said, “the fact that we don’t have people who are capable to do this work is scary.”

 In addition to skills needed to defend ourselves in war, the study found American schools fail to teach students skills needed to avoid conflicts.

 “We don’t have people who know and understand foreign languages and other cultures,” said Spelling, pointing out that U.S. children are ranked No. 17 in the world for language skills. “On any given day, there are hundreds of (job) vacancies for people who speak Pashtu and Arabic, and Mandarin and on and on.”

 Perhaps this report is akin to the famous words, “Houston we have a problem.”

 No kidding.

 We know what the problem is.  Few are willing to say what the causes of the problem are or what the solution is.

 The causes are the educational establishment that has built up in the last few years.  Yes, you can read that as the Education Unions.   They are more interested in protecting teachers and politics than education.

 The schools continue to get worse and worse, and union dues go to make sure we elect politicians who will protect the educational mafia. 

 The education model is broken and the federal government continues to spend billions to keep the model in place and keep kids in failing schools.

 You want to fix the schools and make our schools the best in the world?

 Institute competition.

 Let the free market into the school system.  Use vouchers that will allow parents to send their kids to the best schools around.  Poor schools will fail and go out of business.  Break the teacher’s union and make it possible to fire bad and even mediocre teachers. 

 That will fix this problem.

  But you have the Party of Treason and the Teacher’s Unions standing in the way.  And if you see the way they have fought in Wisconsin, this would be the mother of all political battles.

 Unfortunately, it seems like the Republicans have no stomach for a fight.

The Party of Death – Tea Party Nation

The Party of Death – Tea Party Nation.

Posted by Judson Phillips

Someone once said there are only two things that have no known limits:  The universe and human stupidity.   And we are not certain about the universe. 

 American liberals hate it when we point out facts.  Facts are such an inconvenient matter for liberals.   Most sane people learn not only from their own mistakes but from the mistakes of others.   Michael Savage says liberalism is a mental disorder.  Perhaps that explains why liberals cannot deal with reality.

 Reality is that liberalism is an abject failure.  Socialism sucks and there is a reason for that.  Socialism has never produced freedom, liberty or prosperity. 

 In Germany, we are getting another reminder of how socialism fails.  Angela Merkel, the German Prime Minister is proposing a new tax.  This is a tax on the youth of Germany.

 Why?

 Germany has a demographic problem.  There are too many older people who are receiving generous social benefits and too few young people working to pay for those benefits. 

 Germany’s problems have two roots.  First Germany, like so many European nations did not have policies that encouraged large families.  In fact, their policies of high taxes discourage large families.   Germany also has legal abortion.  The end result, there are not enough Germans being born to replace the Germans getting old and dying off.   This is not unique to Germany.   In Britain, Italy, Greece and most of the other EU nations, the story is being repeated.  In Russia, where in the days of the old Soviet Union abortion was the primary means of birth control, the Russian government is doing everything it can to pull Russia out of a population death spiral. 

 The second cause of Germany’s problems is its massive social welfare system.  After the Second World War, Germany was mostly disarmed and for years after the war, it relied on American military hardware for its reconstituted Army, Air Force and Navy.  It could afford to create lavish welfare programs. 

 Now Germany cannot afford these programs anymore. 

 So what does a socialist nation do when it can’t afford its welfare programs any longer?  Instead of cutting the budget, it creates a new tax. 

 You do not have to be a rocket scientist to see where this is going to end up.  One of the first laws of economics is, the more you tax something, the less you will have of it.   Germany is taxing its future.   A lot of the young Germans are not going to be thrilled that they are working so hard so the old Germans can have the easy life.  They will vote with their feet and look for opportunities elsewhere.   

 Anyone, even a socialist should be able to see the handwriting on that wall. 

 What does this have to do with America?

 The Democratic Party has sold its soul to the abortion industry and the radical feminazis.   They want to subsidize abortions, sterilization and birth control.  If you subsidize population decrease you will get population decrease. 

 The Democrats are also trying to create a lavish welfare state like Europe’s.   Europe has failed.  Its population is in a demographic nosedive and it is heading towards fiscal Armageddon.

 If you see your neighbor start a fire that burns his house down, why on earth would you want to start a fire on your property?

 That is what the Party of Treason wants to do.  We have all seen what our future will be under their leadership.  Only they are so blind they cannot accept the reality that their ideas suck and so do they

Let it fail – Tea Party Nation

Let it fail – Tea Party Nation.

If you want to see the poster child for the failure of American liberalism, look no further than Detroit. 

 Motor city was once a hub of the American economy.  It was a poster child for American economic dominance.  Today, it is a ghost town.  In the last decade, a quarter of the population has left.  Parts of the city are simply uninhabited.  Wild life is moving back into quarters of the city where people have fled.   One of the hottest tickets in Detroit, perhaps the only hot ticket, is something called Urban Exploring.   This is where intrepid souls venture into the wreckage that used to be Detroit in its heyday.  These buildings they go into include the old train station, old schools and hospitals. 

 The Democrat Mayor of what is left of Detroit and the Republican Governor of Michigan are currently in a fight.  Detroit has an economy that makes the Greek economy look like it was run by Dave Ramsey. 

 Mayor Dave Bing does not want the State to take over Detroit.  The Republican Governor of Michigan Rich Snyder wants to do that because Detroit has been so badly managed.  

 Since the 1960’s Detroit has had its hand out for every Federal Government handout that has come down the pike.  The result has been the total destruction of what was once one of the most prosperous cities in America.

 By fighting the Governor on the take over, Mayor Bing wants to perpetuate the failure that has been Detroit for the last fifty years.   Detroit has not had a Republican Mayor in 51 years.  One Democrat after another has raided the city coffers and bankrupted the city.

 Unfortunately, Governor Snyder wants to perpetuate failure too. 

 It is time to admit the truth.

 Detroit is dead.  Let’s pull the plug on Detroit and let it die. 

 Michigan needs to revoke the charter for the City of Detroit and let it pass into history, with other dead cities, like Pompeii.  Similar to Pompeii, Detroit has been buried by an avalanche of progressive volcanic ash.

 As Detroit dies, we need to be warned that it is but the canary in the mineshaft. 

Every city has the same problems Detroit has.  Perhaps not to the same degree but every city does. 

 Every major city relies of federal grants and other tax dollar bailouts to keep the city afloat.  Liberal Democrats, who keep promising greater benefits to the core constituencies that keep them in power, run every one of these major American cities

 Many cities have already driven away a significant portion of their tax base by constantly increasing the taxes the city imposes.   

 One of the ways we can cut Federal Spending is by cutting these block grants and other transfers to the cities.  Cities need to be able to run on their own tax revenues and not have bailouts from the government.

 The problem with bailouts is that they never work.  All they do is mask the problem and allow the politicians who caused the problems to escape the responsibility of fixing them.

 It is time we the people started saying no to the incompetent city hall politicians who believe the city treasury exists only to serve their reelection needs.  It is time we stop feeding failure.  

 Let Detroit die. 

 Something will replace it.  Something better.  Something that will work and will not cost the taxpayers millions or even billions of dollars.

 Let Detroit stand as a warning for everything that is wrong with liberalism.

 Let Detroit’s epitaph be, “Created by the free market.  Destroyed by liberals.”
