Just like the Rock Man, who sees what he wants to see and hears what he wants to hear, the GOP has decided to attempt to assimilate the Tea Party crowd all the while keeping itself open for the same old tricks to please the ONE PUPPETMASTER.
There is NO COMMITMENT for the criminality and theft to end.
The GOP’s potential platform is designed for the express purpose of drawing the Tea Party crowd, and thereby winning upcoming elections, but without the true commitment that Tea Party people require.
According to WND, the grass-roots rebellion is significant enough to warrant platform changes. Without those changes the Tea Party will never support the GOP.
Some of the proposed platform items are as follows:
I will vote for only that legislation which contains a citation to the specific authority granted in Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution.
I will vote against any legislation that infringes the individual right to keep and bear arms.
I will vote for legislation that allows the use of domestic resources to achieve energy and food independence.
I will vote against any legislation that results in a federal takeover of any private corporation, institution or entity.
I will vote against any legislation that authorizes the United Nations to impose a tax, levy, fee, or royalty on the United States or any of its citizens.
The first problem Tea Party members will have is that THERE MUST BE A GENUINE COMMITMENT TO THE ENTIRE CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS AS PUT FORTH BY THE FOUNDERS.
One or two sections only means that there will always be loopholes whereby corruption will enter and the infection that is killing our country will just destroy more organs of the body America.
The REAL trick of this platform is the fourth point listed. “I will vote against any legislation that results in a federal takeover of any private corporation, institution or entity.”
How easily this one statement can be manipulated, as if these criminal corporations must be given a free pass because they are ‘privately’ owned. As if ACORN can never be legislated against or closed down because it too is an ‘entity’ protected under this plank.
Commitment by any politician to this particular point is catastrophic to the Tea Party. It means that we cannot audit the Federal Reserve because, as Ron Paul points out, to audit the Fed is to END the Fed.
It means that we cannot take any actions against ‘private’ banks, investment houses or international corporations because to do so is to garner results that will become a takeover or destruction of those entities.
In short, while private property is certainly a Constitutional right, this element of the platform guarantees the status quo as regards criminal corporations, corruption in our government and the continued seizure of citizen’s properties for the enrichment of a few.
Far far better to return to the original practices of our Founders and permit corporations ONLY long enough to provide for the public good. Far better to guarantee that no entity of any kind will have more rights, more privileges, more support than the individual human being citizen.
Far better to force our government to take responsibility to ‘coin money’ and to outlaw with severe penalties anyone or anyTHING (corporations) that operates a currency that is fraudulent and nothing more than counterfeit monopoly money.
The Tea Party is GETTING SOMEWHERE. The politicians are ignoring the citizens in every way, and the rage is growing. If we settle for easily manipulated tricks, we hamstring our own advance and drive a stake through the heart of the country, instead of the vampires we intend to take down.
