    The Tea Party is starting to make itself known beyond being just a rallying group against big government, Obama-rama, and force fed bills and laws that they do not want.

    The Tea Party is more than a "groundswell" movement.

    The primary victory of Rand Paul has served the WH, Congress, and the Senate with a notice of "eviction" and it will become more, and more victorious because it is a group that represents the people of America. The voice of America. The will of the people. And, the way America once was.

    With the Tea Party, it is no longer "business as usual" in DC. This group is now to be taken serious, and not because it is a danger to American politics, but, rather, a "breath-of-fresh-air" to the majority of the people.

    The Tea Party is not a group of rednecks and violent malcontents. Not at all! They are a group of Americans who want a smaller government. Manageable budget. Capitalism not socialism. And, they want the practice of earmarks, pork barrel spending, special interest groups, and lobbyist to be a part of days long gone from a government by the people, and for the people!

    Tea Party people want a strong America; no amnesty for those who have broken our laws and wave their flag in our face when vever the media is around to give them sympathy.

    Tea Party victories will be minimal in the early days, but, the victories will grow, and they'll grow at a rapid pace once Americans see that they are once again being empowered to run this government like our forefather meant it to be ran.

    And one quick note to Obama: Tea Party Members are not "tea baggers!" What they are quickly becoming is your worst nightmare. History will give credit to Obama, because his style of leadership started a movement that is about to reshape and retake America for Americans!!! :thumbs:

    Shalom,

    Pastor Paul :type:

    Pastor Paul,
    Excellent post, and I like your style. I am really on fire for this candidate. First one I have ever gotten out and helped the campaign. This is a great awakening of the American people to the thieves in both parties that have been robbing us for decades. There are only two qualifications for being a good leader, well three. One is a recognition God regardless of his denomination, two is a person who governs by the Constitution, and three, someone who has a heart to serve the American people.

    I will take it back principle and invest it myself. You can make almost 4% pm Treasuries which beats social security by a light year.

    I would even make an offer to the government if I could:

    Let me opt out of Social Security now and I will let them keep ALL of what they already took from me.

    I have no problem forgoing Medicare benefits, but I paid into Social Security with the promise that I would get some of it back. Why shouldn't I collect my own money?

    Frankly, I think the government ought to feel darned lucky I'm not charging them the interest I could have made on that money if I had invested it myself.

    Same thing goes for tax withholding - you are letting the govt use your money all year interest free.
