He’s been a fiscal conservative go-to guy for a while now. Nice try though DNC.

Time Rebuts Team Obama: Paul Ryan Was ‘Seven Years Ahead of the Tea Party’
By Tim Graham

On Monday’s Today on NBC, Obama spinner Stephanie Cutter claimed Paul Ryan’s never bucked the Republican Party line in the Bush years. But at Time magazine’s Swampland blog, reporter Jay Newton-Small describes the reality: Ryan didn’t like the Bush trend. “I quickly learned Ryan was the go-to person for a fiscal conservative quote – a Republican disgusted with his own party’s profligate spending who not only lambasted the President but also voted against every omnibus appropriations bill.”

Ryan was “seven years ahead of the Tea Party,” she wrote:

Over the next few years, it became clear Ryan was more than a Club for Growth, anti-tax conservative. He was an ideologue and proud of it. During a 2005 mark-up of legislation overhauling the nation’s defined benefit pensions, which the government insures, Ryan urged his GOP colleagues to do better to protect American taxpayers. He was the only Republican on the committee to vote against the bill. Ryan was about seven years ahead of the Tea Party in that regard.

In fact, the GOP establishment seemed terrified that Ryan’s budget plans were politically dangerous…

This comes from Rep. Allen West:

During the question and answer portion of President Obama’s NATO summit press conference today he made an interesting statement. He alluded to the fact that the Presidential election will be about who will ensure success for Americans from top to bottom, that everyone has a fair shot. It is clear that Obama is redefining the words of Thomas Jefferson who articulated that our unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness come from our Creator, not man, nor government. Benjamin Franklin stated that it is the pursuit of happiness and it is incumbent upon the American individual to make that chase and catch it. America is about individual sovereignty to pursue their happiness. It is not about government driven collective subjugation in an attempt to guarantee happiness. Sorry President Obama, we will not allow you to redefine America, nor the American Dream!

Time to get out there and do your duty. Yes, duty.

“Duty then is the sublimest word in the English language. You should do your duty in all things. You can never do more, you should never wish to do less.” – Robert E. Lee

Make the left know you’re on to them and you aren’t going to sit idly by and take their bullshit anymore. We are still the majority, we just have to get out there and prove it. Vote. Even if you don’t like the SOB the GOP puts out there, he is way better than the current occupier in the White House, a.k.a. SCOAMF.

The Tea Party Call to Duty

By Sally Zelikovsky

At the time of America’s founding, the notion of civic duty was commonplace. Our entire system was predicated on the idea that citizens would take an active role in the governance of their towns, states, and country. Little was asked of Americans other than self-governance, jury duty, fighting wars when necessary, protecting the homeland, and living by the rule of law. In time, Americans were additionally “asked” to forfeit a portion of the fruits of their labor to foot the bills the government would incur.

Over the years, we have handed off most of our self-governing and civic duties to others. As the Founders anticipated, we elect town council members and state and federal legislators to “represent” us. But all too often, we leave the voting booth, brush our hands together, and go back to our normal lives thinking we are done…until the next election. In the meantime, we relinquish considerable power and control over our lives to the very people who are supposed to be working for us.

We have so completely shirked our personal and civic responsibilities that we have inadvertently created a class of professional politicians. With the economic and personal stakes being so high for these professional politicians, the legislation they enact is often compromised, and their re-election campaigns are motivated more by what’s good for the incumbent than by what’s good for the People.

Here’s an interesting comparison between the OWS morons and the TEA Party. The contrast is quite striking.

OWS vs. the TEA party, what a difference! [Reader Post]

On the surface, the differences between the Occupy movement and the TEA party movement are quite apparent. The OWS movement trashes parks and streets, commits violent acts against businesses, and all manner of degenerate behaviours. The TEA party movements, on the other hand, generally hold their protests with minimal litter, no known acts of vandalism(that I know of), are generally respectful of communities’ laws regarding assembling and protestation, including to those in the law enforcement community representing those communities. But describing the visual and audible differences is not my point, although those differences certainly play into it. That is, the biggest difference between the two movements has to do with freedom and liberty.

I believe that the two differing groups have vastly different ideas on how freedom and liberty are achieved, and, in essence, who has the responsibility for making a person’s freedom and liberty a reality.

The OWS movement in their own words;

As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power. We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments.

That is the Declaration of the Occupation of New York City.

Sounds about right. You libtards are probably happier than pigs in shit about this, but, just remember, when things change, and they will change, you’re next.

Is the IRS Attempting to Intimidate Local Tea Parties?

In January and February of this year, the Internal Revenue Service began sending out letters to various local Tea Parties across the country. Mailed from the same Cincinnati, Ohio IRS office, these letters have reached Tea Parties in Virginia, Hawaii, Ohio, and Texas (we are hearing of more daily). There are several common threads to these letters: all are requesting more information from these independent Tea Parties in regard to their nonprofit 501(c)(4) applications (for this type of nonprofit, donations are not deductible). While some of the requests are reasonable, much of them are strikingly onerous and, dare I say, Orwellian in nature.

What are local Tea Partiers to think with requests like “Please identify your volunteers” or “are there board members or officers who have run or will run for office (including relatives)”? What possible reason would the IRS have for Tea Parties to “name your donors” when said donations are non-deductible? These are just a few of the questions asked by the IRS in these letters, and one cannot help but suspect an intrinsic threat encompassing all these demands.

The other question is the timing of these IRS letters requesting reams of copies and hundreds of hours of work and potentially thousands of dollars in accounting/legal fees (all due in two weeks). Some of these Tea Party groups have not received anything concerning their nonprofit status since 2010 prior to these letters.

These documents are further undermined by a letter sent to the IRS Commissioner Shulman. Signed by six Senators, it requests that the commissioner investigate 501(c)(4) groups to determine whether they are engaging in substantial campaign activity, including opposition to any candidate. Who signed this letter? Senators Schumer, Franken, Udall, Shaheen, Whitehouse, Merkley and Bennet — all Democrats.

Here’s the Tea Party’s response to the SOTU address:

I plan on supporting this effort. These morons in Congress need to know that the American people aren’t going to put up with their bullshit for much longer.

TEA PARTY February 1st?

So long as we have an inauguration drawing this sort of crowd and not a protest about our government blowing $700 billion of our dollars so that The Pigmen of Wall Street can continue to rob our nation blind, then saddle us with the bill when their bets go bad, we will see no solution.

I cannot take credit for the idea floated on the forum, but I do like it.

It is time for We The People to send a strong message to Washington DC – no more.  No more loading our children and grandchildren with debt.  No more bailing out speculators and bankers who made bets they knew were unsafe at the time.  No more bailing out people who came to Congress to demand the removal of leverage limits, got what they asked for, then blew themselves up with the very leverage they demanded to be able to use.

No more.

Therefore, on February 1st, which is more than enough time for Barack Obama to be seated in his chair in the West Wing, I am recommending an act of peaceful, lawful and yet unmistakable protest.
