Tea Party Patriots down for the long fight.

Russ Steele

After the Tea Party victories across the country in 2010, the liberal media and our local lefties  rushed to pronounce the Tea Party movement a one-hit wonder.  They desperately want people to believe that the Tea Party movement is no longer a political force. Yet, they continue to launch vicious attacks on the patriots who champion the values of limited government, fiscal restraint, and personal responsibility.

Regardless of what the lefty press want us to think,  as a Tea Party member I continue to see signs that the Tea Party is preparing for a long fight, forty years or more according to the master plan.

Yesterday, Ellen and I and about 20 other Tea Party Patriots in the community, including our close friends George and JoAnne Rebane, had lunch with Mark Meckler, co-founder of the Tea Party Patriot organization and special guest Bill Norton, from the National Center for Constitutional Studies.

Mark gave a short talk on the Tea Party Patriot effort to brand the Congressional Super Committee as unconstitutional. He pointed out that the 112 Congress cannot bind a future Congress to spending cuts. The promise of cuts by the Super Committee only creates the allusion that the current congress will cut spending. They cannot force the misery of future cuts on future Congresses, as each Congress must stand on its own.

Attempts to create future cuts by the Super Committee are just fake cuts and we need to demand real cuts by Congress.  Mark was supported by Bill Norton a Constitutional Scholar, the current Super Committee has no constitutional standing.

Bill Norton gave our luncheon group a short history of natural law, the peoples common law, which was the foundation upon which our founding father wrote the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and our Bill of Rights. Our freedoms are being eroded every day as our law makers move away from the Constitution and the principles of individual freedom, the ownership of private property, and the liberty to lead our lives without government interference.

Bill Norton was on his way to Vacaville to give a Making of America Seminar, a full day study of the Constitution. Seminar details can be found here: making_of_america_seminar_guide  I am hoping that we can have a Making of America seminar in Nevada County in 2012.

We also heard an update on the Tea Party Patriots Adopt-a-School, Constitution Week Education Program from Patty Meckler and Shelly Rose. The program was a huge success, with 33 schools and 10 schools districts participating. A model for other Tea Party Patriot organizations across the country according to Patty.

The adopt-a-school program is part of the Tea Party Patriots long term goals to restore our Constitutional freedoms. This is a generational effort to educate our children and grandchildren on the goals of our founding father when they wrote the Constitution. The education materials were provided by the National Center for Constitutional Studies.

It is clear to me that the Tea Party is not going away any time soon. This week end I will be studying Tea Party Budget, prepared by the Tea Party Debt Commission. Do not pay any attention to the lame stream liberal press, they are just doing some wishful thinking.

    There are still many wild cards that will be played out next year. The press has been telling us that the Tea Party is kaput, which is downright silly considering how they did in 2010. The weak field of GOP prez candidates isn’t helping the cause, though. Maybe after a few real primaries one of them will begin to pull away from the pack.

    Obama’s biggest challenge is the economy, and you can bet they’re on their knees praying to Baal or Gaia or who/whatever that things start to turn around by spring. If the OWS movement gets off the street and actually does something besides grandstand, they may be a force to reckon with. There is as much disaffection from the left as the right.

    And who knows how much the Americans Elect movement will have? As Ralph Nader proved in 2000, even one percent can upend an election when the two parties are so evenly devided.

  2. Since you seem to think all the R candidates are lightweights, I would ask you to tell us in detail what you were saying about the D field in 2008 that ended up picking Obama?

    I don’t think the economy is apt to start to turn around by spring. Although I wish it would because at this point it is becoming a bigger issue than the election itself. How’s that for a rock and hard place? This last salvo over the National Forest mineral lease and the Keystone pipeline will have a lot more influence over the economy than just talking points during this election. Even if the best case scenario plays out with regard to both, Canada doesn’t sell the oil to China and the lease is approved after the election, the remnants of the political maneuver will have lasting effects on this economy for years. I don’t even want to think what effect it will have it stays in place as it stands. These two decisions combined could amount to a stage one terminal cancer.

    “If the OWS movement gets off the street and actually does something besides grandstanding”, that would mean they figured out what the real problems are, took a bath, went to work, and joined the Tea Party Patriots.

      Bob W., they don’t need to join the TPP, they already are. Loosen up your binoculars.

      • Bob W says:

        Michael, With that comment I am wondering if you ever learned how to tie your shoes. My friend you have no idea where you are, where you’ve been, or where you will end up.

  4. You are a good example of a socialist educated person. No critical thinking.

    “My friend you have no idea where you are, where you’ve been, or where you will end up.”

    My friend, why don’t you enlighten me?

    Michael I truly wish I could.
