“That crazy movement called the Tea Party got a little dose of sanity – and credibility – this week.
“And what about critics of the Tea Party Movement and their rhetoric of oppressive big government? Well, it seems that they got a bitter dose of reality.
“The core purpose of the Tea Party Movement is smaller government for the sake of liberty and prosperity for all Americans. However, somewhere along the unraveling of political events since the election of President Obama, the conservative movement lost its way and often became symbolic for racism, political nastiness, and partisan extremism. Lost in the mix of all this was a simple but profound message:
“A government by the people that has power to override the will of the people is indeed a dangerous government.
“The conservative movement was extremely critical of Obamacare…(it) opposed unconstitutional czars and 100% taxation to address unprecedented financial bailouts and bonuses…(it) questioned changing stories about overseas terrorist attacks and domestic near-misses.
“People complained, saying this gave government way too much power, even if the intention appeared, on the surface, admirable. The same argument was made at the local level over soda pop limits… and transvaginal exam(s)…
“A government by the people that has power to bully the people – even for its intended “own good” – is indeed a dangerous government.
“At what point will more Americans understand the ramifications of a government that deems itself capable of dictating to you what to buy, how much of it you can buy, and what it can do to your body in the most intimate of life moments?”
