Might as well tell it as I see it for now: Time may change both observation, experience, and opinion...... as I see what happens: The 'tea party' movement should be very CAREFUL, and its individual members very watchful, because there may be wolves dressed in sheeps clothing, sneeking in unawares. As much as I like Sarah Palin, for example, she is proving herself both to be politically ambitious, but not very astute.... when she is supporting a RINO like Gov. Perry of Texas, against a constitutionalist like Deborah Medina...... When the Tea Party, which is made up mostly of grass roots people of mixed demographics but conservative in values and many of modest means, can't get a speaker like Sarah Palin to speak without paying her her price of $100,000/ per engagement.... or offering attendance to a crowd for less than $500/ per head..... something is wrong with this picture, especially to call it a 'fund raiser'. And the TN republican party is ostracizing Dr. Rand Paul, but Palin endorses him. (Where are you ........you so called dyded in the wool die hard 'CONSERVATIVE' Republicans?????????...... Stop cancelling out every guy with 'Paul' for a last name) And she is helping McCain (conservative McCain?????????? .......... the same McCain who is co sponsoring a bill with a Democrat to restrict our access to minerals, herbs, supplements and put control into the hands of doctors, pharma, and the FDA..... yes..... the McCain who believes the same FDA who causes untold farmers to loose whole tomatoe crops due to ecoli... and can't even keep bad drugs or guard bad science promotions...... or prevent China's tainted meds from our hospitals and markets is capable of doing more and restricting US) in his rebid for his Senate Seat, dispite conservative opposition. Sarah Palin..... where's your head? Don't you know he and his Party-Pals are the ones who betrayed you and you were used by them just hoping for a shoe in: Afterwards..... he'd dumped you ....in all but name. You owe HIM nothing.... that is NO-----THING with a capital N! I'm not presenting this as against her or for her.... but as a case in point concerning just how mixed up are even those who we think might represent us, actually are concerning their own knowledge of what they are doing, and for whom, and for what outcomes. Clearly, the echelon in the Republican Party, will NOT support Palin, but they will use her and make a pretense of supporting her to create a spoiler influence into the politics of the states in this coming primary season. Republicans should be looking for the most conservative, constitutionalist or state-rights candidates they can find. Anything such a candidate is not can be changed by the people if we can just get leaders who will bring the power back closer to the people so the people can control the choices of their elected representatives. The same thing happened (spoiling election) in California when the Constitution Party candidate across the nation ran Chuck Baldwin, but the California ballot allowed the conservative but globalist spoiler, Allen Keyes to run on their Presidential Slate. I like Allen and have voted for him in primaries.... He's believes in God and in Jesus, takes an anti abortion stand, is Catholic, but he is also a globalist which means he supports and trusts the UN...... which is one of our major major problems as much of our changes in law and policies are really a deferring to its agenda to bring in a single world government and our government is bankrolling its progress! It is important to remember that as conservatives and as Christians, just where our principals lie; But it is also important for us to realize that in politics, our present state of affairs did not happen overnight..... but was graduated in changes which occurred all the while we voted 'for the best' in the choices we were presented without holding them accountable for promises they made to us and then quickly broke, and the biggest area of control that we lost.... was while we got distracted by 'minors' which appeared as 'majors' because of the importance of our values....... the main ones which was necessary to retain or recover those required that we keep close reign on our individual rights and keep government strength and effectiveness close within our own control such as election districts or states instead of allowing Federal intrusion. This coming primary season and the elections which follow, will not be about two parties and the puppets which they prefer, but will be about voter dissatisfaction with the 'chosen' and a revolt which either places conservative and constitutional 'less knowns' on the Party ballots of democrats and republicans or offers a revolt against both parties in preference for the Independant slate.... who ever may be on it. In which case, while we may have various divisions and goals related to issues like abortion, or gay marriages, or for or against the war....... for or against various kinds of health care reform, we may have to temporarily subdue these issues to succeed at the one goal, getting government, laws, budgets, and taxes, closer to the control of the people ..... by focusing on return of control and responsibility to the states and local people. We must realize that by voting only for those who do understand and will herald this constitutional necessity must precedent before any real change can occur in reducing Federal influence and increasing voter's representation. Wonder what others are thinking?
