In less than 48 hours, we will find out if the Tea Party movement is a real force or a farce.
According to New York Times columnist and left-wing blowhard, Paul Krugman, it is a farce.
Here are some of his "thoughts" on the Tea Party movement:
One way to get a good sense of the current state of the G.O.P., and also to see how little has really changed, is to look at the “tea parties” that have been held in a number of places already, and will be held across the country on Wednesday. These parties — antitaxation demonstrations that are supposed to evoke the memory of the Boston Tea Party and the American Revolution — have been the subject of considerable mockery, and rightly so.
Oh, yes, it is a mockery only to someone like Mr. Krugman. But, the paragraph before this tells you all you need to know about how the people like Mr. Krugman look at the Tea Party movement and the Republican party:
But here’s the thing: the G.O.P. looked as crazy 10 or 15 years ago as it does now. That didn’t stop Republicans from taking control of both Congress and the White House. And they could return to power if the Democrats stumble. So it behooves us to look closely at the state of what is, after all, one of our nation’s two great political parties.
Yes, conservative Republicans are "crazy" according to Mr. Krugman. People who are sick and tired of being taxed, taxed and taxed are rising up. And, Mr. Krugman can throw "crazy" out there all he wants. But, from all I have observed about the Tea Party movement, it is real.
Here in my hometown of Pasadena, California, the local Republican club with a little more than a weeks notice, they were able to draw 200 to 500 people to a protest at Pasadena City Hall. Here are some photos, courtesy of Gay Patriot.
And, just for good measure, this sign in the crowd shows that someone must read this blog and shares my sentiments about the current governor of California.
And while this is just a small sample, one can sense that the Tea Party movement is real. And the left is worried.
Look at the fact that some lefties are ready to try to horn in on the festivities on Wednesday. The good lefties at the Puffington Post are sending "citizen journalists" to cover the events. But, consider that the least number of Tea Party events are somewhere around 500 across the United States. If you need to find one near you, here is a good place to go. Tax Day Tea Party has the locations at each state in the nation. There are 62 confirmed Tea Parties across the once Golden State.For the record, if you are in the Glendale, California area, join your humble blogger and hundreds if not thousands sending a real and clear message. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
The people of the United States are tired of being hosed by all government entities from the cities to the feds. It is time to listen to We, The People.
