The Tea Party Movement is a Disgusting Lie

The Tea Party movement has nothing to do with policy or fixing government’s problems (and we all know there are a LOT of problems). It has everything to do with ultra conservatives re-energizing scared and desperate Americans so they can regain control of the government and continue their efforts to destroy the very people who voted for them.

The issues we face today are complicated. There are no simple answers. Unfortunately, Americans like simple problems with simple, obvious solutions. All of the problems we face – ALL of them – have multiple causes and no simple, quick-fix solutions. Those who tout simple solutions to our problems are spending more time thinking about marketing and less about solutions.

The Tea Party movement is all about the message, but the substance behind the message is quite different. They are promoting solutions that have not worked in the past but are easy to talk about and even easier to sell to Americans who are desperate. The promises being made by the Tea Party will not help the people who are supporting them, and that is the biggest tragedy.

The right-wing reformation started with Ronald Reagan, and did not stop even through the Clinton years thanks to a republican congress. They had 30 years to get it right, and cannot give any other ideas a chance. They don’t care if they destroy America as long as they are in control.

When the Tea Party movement fails it’s supporters I wonder if Americans will finally wise up or just find another simple answer that will not work. It is so sad that Americans cannot see past the lies.
