It's been a while since I have posted, and hell...it may be while longer until my next rant. Real life and a variety of interests, not to mention a recurring bad case of the lazies, can be a real stumbling block. But here's an issue that I felt compelled to get indignant about.
I remember when the Tea Party first came about, and feeling somewhat indifferent and even cautious. I wanted to wait for a little bit and see what was going to shake out of the whole thing. To my pleasant surprise I was amazed that these folks seemed to have hit it just right in terms of the principles upon which they stood: A return to limited (Constitutional) government, less taxes (Federally madated slavery), and getting the power-hungry bureaucracy out of the way of a free (and healthy) economy..just to name a few.
I knew that we were striking gold with this movement when the liberal distortion-machine kicked into gear and the corrupt mainstream media started parroting thier propoganda. What any reasonably honest person would describe as a respectful and patriotic (at least from thier view) bunch was all of a sudden a gaggle of fringe miscreants with a heavy streak of racism. Translated from liberal-speak, they were the unabashed good guys. The left simply cannot deal fairly with the principled right.
Fast forward a bit and we find the left taking a page from the Tea Party folks, jumping out in the streets with thier own version of the TP: the Occupy Wall Street movement. Never mind that, despite the subserviant media charicatures, the Tea Party were an overwhelmingly dignified bunch that stood on firm principles rooted in our greatest traditions, while the OWS mob were a bunch of clowns without a clear message or goal except to extract from others (the "1%") the fruits of thier labor. And let us put aside also that thier "movement", which supposedly represented the entirety of us in the "99%" (an incredibly smug claim, to say the least), was characterized by crime and walking the borderline of riotous behavior rather than the comparitively timid behavior of those "extremist" "Tea Baggers".
No, what ought to concern us is whom the MSM and liberal politicians villainized, and whom they endorsed. It speaks volumes to the character and nature of these who depend on the ignorance of common folk to accept thier propoganda as gospel. The fact that they can do so with such frequency and hubris confirms that far too many are mere sheep, a fact they know well.
In an effort to aid the "sheeple", allow me to present here a clear and accurate distinction between the two. OWS is no Tea Party...the difference is profound, it is the difference between destroying our country and saving it.
