My own Senator from the great state of Texas, John Cornyn criticized Sen. Paul for his filibuster of this monumental fiscal mismanagement...I hope he has a primary challenger. Same goes with RINO Rep.Kevin Brady of The Woodlands Texas.
The Tea Party can massively change things this November and untie Trump’s hands and send McConnell and Paul down the road.
As long as there are Trump supporters, the Tea Party lives.
“The military in particular was taking it on the chin.”
The military is ‘taking it on the chin’ because they won’t get rid of all the affirmative action, Pc nonsense. It is extremely expensive and that alone hurts morale.
We are stretched way too this as well; not to mention engaging in never-ending wars under false pretenses.
Have you heard about some of the early finding of the Pentagon audit? Billions upon billions unaccounted for.
No, it’s the American taxpayer that’s not only taking it on the chin, but taking it up the ___.
* I still go to meetings
* Yes the ranks have thinned ( other locals started up to cut down on their drive times ).
* And, as it matured and folks ran for office, others just went back to their lives like they wanted too, and be left alone from Obama's intrusiveness.
* But do you think the spirit has died Mr NY Times? Not in a million years.
Many at the Tea Party I attend were melancholy and doom and gloom about Candidate Trump. Before the election ( Aug / Sept ) they had an open mic night as part of this discussion ya or nay or on the fence about Candidate Trump. Well it sounded like Eor. So I got up and told them you don't see it, he is gonna win in a landslide and I gave my reasons why, I went on for about 2 & 1/2 minutes with passion and conviction. I saw a few faces change and a glimmer of hope. On the way out a couple of gents stopped me and thanked me and one relayed a story about a pole taken at a "plant where they make big things in MI" shall we say and the rank and file voted 60 / 40 and the 40 was for she who shall not be named. That sealed it for me, then I knew he'd carry MI.
Mr NY Times ought to get out and meet some of my friends that whilst they never been to a Tea Party meeting are Tea Party to the core and all voted for him in the Primary, and this is on top of those that go to organized meetings.
President Trump became our voice, a linkage to Palin, Savage, Buchanan and Reagan, to hearken back to Reagan, he payed for the microphone and will not be silenced, and by extension neither were we. Finally.
He should start at the Pentagon. The waste there drawfs that at State or HUD.
A huge half truth.
The Dims love to spend money (the domestic spending they demanded), and the RINOs caved in to the Dims spending demands to avoid a shutdown. The situation was, from the Dims - either agree to OUR domestic spending demands, or we will again force a shutdown. This time Trump, McConnell & Ryan didn’t have the gonads to force the Dims hand. Now they have the Dims spending demands set for two years AND they got no Obamacare killing item in the resolution bill.
The NY Times calls this the end of the Tea Party. In fact it may mean the Tea Party is reborn.
Trump's amnesty for daca kids will bring up some disconnect again with tea party supporters and might fan some flames. If the economy doesn't take off[enough to take care of all this debt], it might bring some problems as well.
Dear NY Slimes: ‘The Tea Party isn’t not dead..watch in 2018, since we got RINOs to retire....’
That party has been over for over a decade.
Remember Open-checkbook George W?
Recall the bailouts in his last 2 years?
Paging Rick Santelli....
Exactly, I’m taking the long view also.
Fix the military, more jobs across the board and everything else follows on track...
Waste is one issue. It’s a big one. Where money is allocated is another. Additionally, we are short equipment, maintenance and a strategic plan to stay far ahead of our enemies. The waste and PC environment alone does not solve the other issues singularly. The sequestration debacle was a bad policy. Letting it go on for 5 years is abhorrent.
Liberal-tarians took over the voice of the tea party and forgot the part about the health care take over. Instead, all those retired people were protesting over their social security and medicare retirement return.
