So, if you are an ISIS savage who brutally murders innocent men, women and children in the name of Allah, in the name of "your religion", we as American citizens MUST understand and consider the "legitimate grievances" you have against us. Then we must kowtow and appease so as not to offend the sensitivities of the Islamist fanatical murderous bastards.
But....
If you are an American citizen with legitimate grievances or you disagree with the policies of the current administration, you are branded as the terrorist and need to be dealt with, shut down or dismissed.

The Question now is, Who are We?
And
Will we just sit back and accept what self annointed elites define who we are or shall we stand proud and define ourselves?

That's Final

 We certainly have come along way since 1776. There have been great advancements and new experiences above and beyond the old antiquated days of the late 1700's. Maybe we should consider a new charted for the United States, something more modern, something that fits our greater intellect something that, shall we say is a little more tolerant. . .
 Really?
If we were to to discard The Declaration of Independence for something more modern something more progressive, any reasoning behind such an argument falls way short of the great froward thinking of the great men who wrote the Declaration.
There is a finality To the Great Charter. If all men are created equal, that's final. If we are endowed with inalienable rights, that's final.If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed. . . yep, that's final. No advance can be made from here. The only direction that can be made from these propositions historically is backwards towards a time when there was no equality and no rights of the individual, and no rule of the people...

New Party

We, the members of the New Republican Party, believe that the preservation and enhancement of the values that strengthen and protect individual freedom, family life, communities and neighborhoods and the liberty of our beloved nation should be at the heart of any legislative or political program presented to the American people. Toward that end, we, therefore, commit ourselves to the following propositions and offer them to each American believing that the New Republican Party, based on such principles, will serve the interest of all the American people.




We believe that liberty can be measured by how much freedom Americans have to make their own decisions, even their own mistakes. Government must step in when one’s liberties impinge on one’s neighbor’s. Government must protect constitutional rights, deal with other governments, protect citizens from aggressors, assure equal opportunity, and be compassionate in caring for those citizens who are unable to care for themselves.



Our federal system of local-state-national government is designed to sort out on what level these actions should be taken. Those concerns of a national character -- such as air and water pollution that do not respect state boundaries, or the national transportation system, or efforts to safeguard your civil liberties -- must, of course, be handled on the national level.



As a general rule, however, we believe that government action should be taken first by the government that resides as close to you as possible.



We also believe that Americans, often acting through voluntary organizations, should have the opportunity to solve many of the social problems of their communities. This spirit of freely helping others is uniquely American and should be encouraged in every way by government.



Families must continue to be the foundation of our nation.



Families -- not government programs -- are the best way to make sure our children are properly nurtured, our elderly are cared for, our cultural and spiritual heritages are perpetuated, our laws are observed and our values are preserved.



Thus it is imperative that our government’s programs, actions, officials and social welfare institutions never be allowed to jeopardize the family. We fear the government may be powerful enough to destroy our families; we know that it is not powerful enough to replace them. The New Republican Party must be committed to working always in the interest of the American family.



Every dollar spent by government is a dollar earned by individuals. Government must always ask: Are your dollars being wisely spent? Can we afford it? Is it not better for the country to leave your dollars in your pocket?



Elected officials, their appointees, and government workers are expected to perform their public acts with honesty, openness, diligence, and special integrity.



Government must work for the goal of justice and the elimination of unfair practices, but no government has yet designed a more productive economic system or one which benefits as many people as the American market system.



The beauty of our land is our legacy to our children. It must be protected by us so that they can pass it on intact to their children.



The United States must always stand for peace and liberty in the world and the rights of the individual. We must form sturdy partnerships with our allies for the preservation of freedom. We must be ever willing to negotiate differences, but equally mindful that there are American ideals that cannot be compromised. Given that there are other nations with potentially hostile design, we recognize that we can reach our goals only while maintaining a superior national defense, second to none....



Our task now is not to sell a philosophy, but to make the majority of Americans, who already share that philosophy, see that modern conservatism offers them a political home. We are not a cult, we are members of a majority. Let’s act and talk like it.



The job is ours and the job must be done. If not by us, who? If not now, when?



Our party must be the party of the individual. It must not sell out the individual to cater to the group. No greater challenge faces our society today than ensuring that each one of us can maintain his dignity and his identity in an increasingly complex, centralized society.



Extreme taxation, excessive controls, oppressive government competition with business ... frustrated minorities and forgotten Americans are not the products of free enterprise. They are the residue of centralized bureaucracy, of government by a self-anointed elite.



Our party must be based on the kind of leadership that grows and takes its strength from the people. Any organization is in actuality only the lengthened shadow of its members. A political party is a mechanical structure created to further a cause. The cause, not the mechanism, brings and holds the members together. And our cause must be to rediscover, reassert and reapply America’s spiritual heritage to our national affairs.



Then with God’s help we shall indeed be as a city upon a hill with the eyes of all people upon us.





(From "The New Republican Party" -- 1977)

Can Anyone Tell Me?

 Can anyone point to any socialist ruler, past or present, who participates in the same socialism that they impose on there people?
 Now I understand the liberal rank and file belief in the theory of of socialism. Yes in a perfect world all would be fair. No one would be left behind. No one would have more or less than anyone else. . .
 The problem is, is that it isn't a perfect world and Utopia does not exists. In a socialist society everyone is left behind except of course those who hold power... They Do Not Participate! They live lives of opulence the backs of those they rule. If they want to be a player on a global scale and take part in the global market place, well there is no room for socialism it is a capitalist system  like it or not.
  Realizing your dreams is hard work. No one is going to hand them to you. And no one will make you work harder than your dreams themselves.

Different Americans?

Very simply, either you are an American or you are not.We are not a nation of white-Americans, African-Americans,Mexican-Americans, Asian-Americans etc. . . We are the Nation of Americans. We are not Hyphenated!

Hyphenating us is not a method of lifting up any individual. It is nothing more than pure segregation. The so called "powers that be" or those who seek power are scared to death of us. That's us , We the People. They are scared of us being one, of being united. Separating us and labeling us as different kinds of Americans is an attempt to keep us from being united, so that we ill tear each other apart. Class warfare, gender warfare, race baiting, these are the things that "they" (those who claim to be seeking a socialist utopia) are trying to keep alive. To create chaos and unrest is the goal so that they can be at the ready to step in and save the day. . . To save us from ourselves.
 If we stand together our strength is undeniable and unstoppable. If they succeed in keeping us apart we are done as a people. . . We will become slaves.
 After the Convention a woman asked Ben Franklyn, "Sir wat have you given  us?" He replied. "A Republic ma'am, if you can keep it."
 That is our duty. That is just one of our responsibilities that we need to take in order to preserve our rights our freedom and our country

A State of Mind

What the Tea Party movement is. It is a growing number of ordinary people who instinctively know that something is very wrong. It is a growing number of people who have had enough! It is a growing number of people who are finding their voice as well as finding the courage to use that voice to say "We have had enough!" The Tea Party movement is made up of ordinary people from all walks of life, Democrats, Republicans and Independents alike who are willing to stand up and take all the smears and the lies that the people who fear them the most will throw at them. It is all about accountability and responsibility.
   It is not a corporation. It is not lead by or funded by any corporation. You cannot point to anyone and say "There is the Leader of The Tea Party"
Like I said it is ordinary people who have had enough of out of control government spending. It is people who have had enough of an ever expanding intrusive government. The Tea party is not anti-government. It is pro-Constitution and limiting the power of government. It is all about family and friends helping each other. We do not need big Government to take of us.
Very simply the Tea Party is a State of Mind
