Wake Up America

Challenge to the Tea Party From a True American

March 15th, 2011

If the Tea Party is serious about a Government of the people, by the people, and for the people then this is my challenge.

If you truly want to give this Government back to the people then I challenge you to demand all Tea Part elective officials, both State and Federal to immediately introduce a bill that will make it illegal for government elected officials and their staff to work with, take money from or meet with special interest groups and or lobbyists without full discloser to the American people, by means of video recordings of every conversation that then will be made available to every American citizen viva the Internet.

This one law would change American politics and give the power of Government back to the people more than anything else you can do, including cutting taxes and budgets.

If you are truly serous about a government of the people, by the people, and for the people you will do this today, but I predict that your candidates will ignore your request.  I predict that Governor Walker of Wisconsin will not take his billionaire backers off his speed dial, no more than the Governor Corbett of PA will take the natural gas industry off of his.

I can hear you now, saying we can’t do this because it would infringe on these lobbyists freedom of speech… to this I say these lobbyists can continue to run their ads in the paper, radio and TV to get their message to the people that vote not directly to the politician. Why should they have an access to a Governor that I don’t have?

Then it is the responsibility of the FTC to use the truth in advertising law to make certain that these left and right wing organizations are telling the truth in their advertisements.  No more repeating half-truths and outright lies over and over again, playing the American people as fools.  The FTC needs to do their job and protect the American people from deceptive ads by shutting them down and issuing heavy fines on these organizations.

These changes would do more for America than any law passed in the last 25 years and would give the power back to the people.  Sadly I know that you will not take me up on this challenge, because your leadership will not allow it.

I will even go as far as to give you the benefit of doubt that in the beginning the Tea Party really did believe they were working to give the power of governing this country back to the individual, but I fear the Tea Party was shanghaied along the way by special interest groups looking to use this populous movement to further their grip on American politicians.

Now special interest is using your name to divide the working class in this country and pit middle class non-union workers against middle class union workers.  I know this goes against your belief that all American citizens have the right to the pursuit of happiness and The Right to Earn a Living given by our Constitution… Right?

I know you cannot truly be against Americans earning as much money as they possibly can and that you really don’t believe that Teachers are the blame for our countries financial difficulties.  I know that the propaganda being spread by the actual Wall Street bankers (that did cause this mess), to entice you to help them divide and conquer the middle class is not a true Tea Party agenda.

Although this might have not been your original intent, the Tea Party has been taken over by special interest groups and now their will is being served and sadly this means there will be NO government of the people, by the people, and for the people.  The Tea Part has lost its voice as a grass roots organization of common everyday people trying to make this country better. It has proven that what might have started as true democracy, has followed the path of the other two parties and has been bought out by those that have the most money to contribute.

You can prove me wrong by simply taking me up on my challenge and start introducing bills across America that takes our government back from the lobbyists and special interest groups. That is the only way our Government will ever be of the people, by the people, and for the people, and until this happens America will continue to be bought by the highest bidder.

So Tea Party are you up for the challenge, or will your inaction prove that you also sold out the American people that thought you might have been something different?

  1. If the Tea Party is not ashamed at the current events going on with people they supported and helped get elected then ALL of their talk from the beginning was a lie. The republicans are attacking the middle class who are the bread and butter of this country and our children’s education is being threatened by their antics. We will not go quietly in the night and let this happen. The Tea Party needs their voice back to challenge the very people that are ruining this nation as we speak. And yes we ALL have a right to the pursuit of happiness—even the middle class. We have earned it. Can you say the same!!!!

  2. The tea party, I am sad to say, has become like the other party’s. They now are promoting the party rather than promoting real change which is what this nation needs. Again, as in the past, the middle class suffers! Quit catering to the constituents and make the changes that are needed for a healthy governmrnt not to increase you coffers. Shame on you.
