Time To Get Fired Up Again. We The People Are Fed Up

Posted by Judson Phillips on March 31, 2011 at 6:36am in Tea Party Nation Forum
This is from Tea Party Nation E Mail I received this AM.
If you have read my previous columns on the subject of Boehner and the spineless GOP, all I have to say here is ditto and we are done.
It is time for the Tea Party to act. We have said this before and we need to make them listen. All of the members of congress are up for election in eighteen months. We need to remind the 84 republican freshmen how they got there and for the other members of congress, we need to remind them, they are not a shoe in for reelection. We have a primary election process and we the people are not happy.
I am calling my Congressman today. I have known her since before she was elected to Congress and well before the Tea Party movement got started. I am going to have one simple message for her. If you support this bill that only cuts $33 billion from the budget, I am going to support someone in a primary against you.
As for Boehner, there is no compromise.
The people of America elected Republicans to cut the budget. The message was overwhelmingly clear. Obama, Pelosi and Reid are driving America off of a fiscal cliff. The American people wanted the Republicans to put the brakes on. All John Boehner is doing is watching the scenery go by and lighting another cigarette.
Boehner must go. The Tea Party must unite and make sure Boehner is replaced in the next election. Boehner is living proof of something I have said for a long time. It is not enough that we vote out bad leaders, we must replace them with good leaders. Getting Nancy Pelosi out of the Speaker’s seat was a good thing. Unfortunately, her replacement has not been very good. We need people in leadership who are committed to cutting spending and eliminating these programs.
That is not John Boehner. Apparently, he’s just another Washington good old boy, who, after 20 years in DC, has lost touch with America.
Our ultimate strategy here needs to be to make sure the debt ceiling is not raised. If we can win on this one, Congress will be forced to make changes. This is a message that, unfortunately, few leaders in the Tea Party have been carrying. We have been talking about it here at Tea Party Nation for quite a while; probably to the point some people are tired of hearing about it. Our friend, Joseph Farah over at World Net Daily has been really pushing this issue. According to Farah, all we need are 218 Republicans in the House to say no and the debt ceiling does not get raised. There have been a number of defections from Boehner on the budget process to date. All we need is 218 members of congress to say no and we will have a balanced budget. It will have to happen since Congress will not be able to borrow more money.
In the last few days, we have seen the messaging from the left. The Tea Party is fading. The Tea Party’s negative ratings are rising. The Tea Party is “extreme.” The Tea Party is an obstacle in the path of compromise.
To paraphrase Barry Goldwater:
Extremism in defense of our country and stopping those who will bankrupt her is no vice, and compromise with those who would spend us into poverty is no virtue.

Great article, Judson!! Making a call to your congress member & knowing her personally helps, but most of us don’t even know our congress member. They won’t even respond to our e-mails or letters (that’s been my experience). I like the headline …Time to…” cause that’s part of a book just out that’s about Americans who finally take a stand again their govt. I recommend it only cause it’s about average Americans (like all of us) & fight as our founding fathers did. It’s a must read for the upcoming 2012 races. ( http://www.booksbyoliver.com ). Again, thanks for keeping the… Read more »


As well Steve,thanks for posting this,I received a e-mail from my congressman lastnight on this-he has an R by his name,I was furious. I immediately wrote back letting him know how unhappy I was with this. Speaker Boehner is definitely not capable here. I said “You have the power of the purse,use it!” What the weasels that have been left in have shown me,is that they are in the same pocket obama is. They need to go. We have Michele Bachmann,Jim Demint and the incoming freshman that are fighting for the people and thats it. Please support the Tea Party… Read more »


Budget Pharmacology Way over in the corner, Beset by fits and starts, The trouble-makers loiter And practice their black arts. They just don’t keep their focus, At least like you and I. Their minds begin to wander; Their thoughts go all awry. When jolted by a crisis They go into a state, Unable to face problems That make them concentrate. Just take a look at Durbin Whose thoughts have gone askew, Ignoring our debt crisis And lecturing on chew. And how ’bout Charlie Schumer’s Extremist conference call? I’m worried ’bout that fellow; He needs his Adderall. Of course, there’s good… Read more »


This congress has been in place for three months and has made nary a dent in Obama’s rapidly moving agenda. Obamacare is rolling right along, and the spending cuts being proposed are a complete joke. I have yet to hear any repubs really go after Obama, Holder, Broomy Hildabeast, or any of the other incompetent boobs in this rogue administration from Hell. Forget November of 2012, I want to see the RINO recall petitions cranking up now, as I am not at all convinced 2012 is going to arrive in time to turn this ship around before it goes over… Read more »


Maybe it’s time to start thinking about wrapping and soaking the torches and sharpening the pitchforks.
No joke.
