Bill Whittle provides excellent analysis of some key differences between the Tea Party movement and the Occupy Wall Street movement, including: The Tea Party talks about fiscal responsibility, the Federalist Papers, and the Constitution, the OWS movement…doesn’t do much talking or thinking, but a lot of chanting; While liberals want conservatives to shut up, conservatives want liberals to keep talking; and more.
John Quinn was one of the featured speakers at the Dec. 10 meeting of the South Dakota Tea Party Alliance. Quinn spoke about the American economy, what makes it great, and what holds it back. He also spoke about economic theory and how the political state of affairs affects the strength of our economy. This is the complete video of his presentation.
An open letter from a Sean Hannity fan who is fed up that Hannity continues to give air time to RINO mudslinger Karl Rove. “Moving on to this primary season, its clear to anyone that the GOP has promised Mitt Romney the nomination and they are doing everything they can to see that, systematically, each of his rivals are destroyed.”
Socialists on the Left would have us believe that their “progressive” (an Orwellian term designed to obfuscate the fact that they are liberal–modern liberal, not classic liberal) ideas can work in the real world. However, it only takes a cursory examination in the real world to realize these fantasies won’t withstand contact with reality. This video provides some insight into how and why these principles contrast, as well as how they work…or, in the case of liberalism, don’t work.
Now this is the kind of cuts we need to get America back on track fiscally! We’re currently $15 TRILLION in debt. We have an annual deficit of about $1.5 TRILLION, so do the math: in 10 years, unless the economy comes back strong, we’ll have accrued another $15 trillion in debt.This means that cuts of anything less than about $10 trillion over 10 years are a drop in the bucket, a complete waste of everyone’s time. And the “supercommittee” is wringing it’s hands over cutting $1.2 trillion over 10 years? What planet are they on???
Here’s some more of that famous love, compassion and tolerance from the Left. A conservative woman went to Occupy Portland to see for herself if things were really as bad as she’d heard. She was verbally attacked, called names, threatened, and told she had no right to be there in this public place. A man was even caught on video telling her he hopes she gets hit in the head with a tear gas canister so he can laugh at her.
President Obama and other Leftists have made us laugh with their faux comparisons between the patriotic Tea Party movement and the anti-American Occupy Wall Street movement. There simply is no legitimate comparison.The vast difference has led the Media Research Center to put together a list of questions that might naturally come to mind for an Occupy Wall Street protestor, but you’d never have to ask a Tea Partier.
President Obama and his fellow Democrats have told us that they are sympathetic to the Occupy Wall Street movement, and they support them. This is not a surprise, since we have been hearing many of the same things, though veiled and ratcheted down somewhat, from them for years. Some, like Obama, have even had the audacity to claim the Occupy Wall Street movement is like the Tea Party movement. Really? Let’s compare the two.
I don’t always agree with George Will; he sometimes waffles on conservative principles. But in his latest column today, he is definitely seeing clearly and has important words that every–EVERY–Republican and Republican-leaning independent should take to heart. Has conservatism come so far, surmounting so many obstacles, to settle, at a moment of economic crisis, for a RINO like Mitt Romney?
Most Tea Party supporters love our American flag and the republic for which it stands! We mean it when we say, “One nation under GOD, with liberty and justice for all!” We stand against every unwarranted regulation that hampers our liberty and hassles our businesses. Communists, anarchists, socialists, atheists and radical liberals feel uncomfortable with our traditional patriotism.
A new Gallup poll finds most Americans recognize the cause of our economic woes: the federal government. Minus those government policies, the leverage that sunk the economy in 2008 would not be possible. For Republicans looking to thread the needle in 2012, they would do well to point out how government policies caused the financial crisis, and to hold accountable any opponent who supports maintaining those policies.
It would be nice if Hollywood actors would stick to doing what they do best—acting—instead of disappointing so many of their fans by opening their mouths to reveal their malignant thinking while falsely accusing millions of their fellow Americans. Some of these Leftist actors have been given invitations to attend a Tea Party rally and see for themselves whether there is really any racism there. Think they’ll take the Tea Partiers up on their offer?
This kind of garbage is really beneath my standards for this website, but as unpleasant as it is, I believe it is critical that everyday Americans face head-on and come to grips with the attitudes we’re dealing with from the Left. In short, they loathe the American way of life, and they loathe everything we love. And they would rather play the victim card than take responsibility for their own lives.
This video provides a great contrast between the patriotic Tea Party movement and the anti-American “Occupy Wall Street” movement. The Tea Party promotes constitutionally limited government, fair taxation, fiscal responsibility, and freedom. The “occupationist” movements promote Marxism, class warfare, envy, greed, revolution, disrespect for the U.S. Constitution, contempt for our military, loathing for our way of life, filth, and disrespect for law and order.
This is a great video from the Daily Caller showing some of the Marxists at the “Occupy Wall Street”-inspired “Occupy DC” event telling us what they believe…as best as they understand what they believe. We also see a Tea Party patriot mixing with with the Marxists and not receiving a very friendly reception.
So some of the people who seek to destroy freedom and the free market in America are getting paid to do it? What a deal! When I joined the Tea Party movement, I didn’t get paid a dime. at? You say we have to be trying to tear down America, not restore freedom, fiscal responsibility and respect for the Constitution, to qualify?
The Tea Party movement is protest against abuse of political power and the increasing marginalization and disrespect for truths, such as protection of life, liberty and property that define American freedom. Occupy Wall Street is about lust for political power, about defining what others should have, and redistributing and spending what belongs to some else.
Good analysis (as always) from Ann Coulter of the Leftist mob mentality fueling (such as it is) this juvenile temper tantrum becoming known as the Wall Street Occupation. Coulter points out that, while avowed communists like Van Jones would like to capitalize on what makes the Tea Party movement so effective, his movement has far more in common with the bloody and Godless French Revolution and the Marxist October Revolution than the freedom-oriented American Revolution.
As anyone who has followed the Tea Party’s rocket rise to popularity over the last 2-3 years knows, the movement has been so tremendously popular because most Americans agree with the traditional American values that are at the core of the Tea Party movement. So it was rather interesting to read this story from Fox News about Van Jones’ recommendation that his fellow Leftist revolutionaries adopt the Tea Party’s playbook.
Can anyone remember a time when Congress had a decent approval rating? Here we are after the supposed tidal wave that hit Congress last November that would forever transform the way politicians do business in Washington. Guess what happened? Nothing really changed other than the nameplates on the doors. Out-of-control spending continues. Obamacare remains the law of the land. And budgets continue to grow.
I’ve always liked Morgan Freeman, going all the way back to watching him on “Electric Company” as a kid. He’s a rich and convincing actor, and has a likable personality. What a shame that he made such a complete idiot of himself recently with his unfounded and unsupported claims that the Tea Party is racist. Herman Cain, the man who won the Florida Straw Poll yesterday, is living proof of just how wrong Freeman and his fellow liberals really are.
The best of the best from Dakota Voice last week, including: Obamas ‘Attack Watch’ not for the Strong of Mind; Democrats Defend the Tea Party; Chris Matthews Agrees: Social Security is a Ponzi Scheme; Republicans Begin to Rein in NLRB; Why Aren’t Republicans Cutting More Spending?; Pulpit Freedom Sunday 2011 Coming Up; and more!
