Tea Party renaming.

5 posts / 0 new

In view of the indifference of the "Tea Party" and most "Republicans" to those who are not as well off as they are, they should be in future referred to as the "Let them eat cake" party

The "Tea Party" is a GREAT idea... too bad it doesn't exist. I would suppose that it "never" did.

It is, HOWEVER (My Stephen A. Smith impersonation) a testament to the powers of propaganda.

It's also a testament that shows just how far our republic has fallen. It's so bad, that millions of people IGNORED the obvious... and went along with something just because they "thought" it was a step in the right direction.

There are lessons to be learned from it from a science point of view.

Imagine how people would act if they were given the truth every once and a while.

One pathway to restore integrity in the public's discourse is a reinstatement of the fairness doctrine. To do that takes at least one presidential term in the people's party. The next thing has to be the senate, and abrogating the 60 vote majority. When the most powerful body in america is the SCOTUS as it is now, legislation must be persued to alter it's charter. If the senate can get the 60, the rules could change. The President could nominate and get approved some jurors other than neonazis. The propaganda that brought about the neonazi trend would then have an antidote.

The trade commission could also be of assisitance. News should be tax free, fox is not news, superpac ads should be taxed at 30 to 50 persent. Fox is nothing but opinion, and should be taxed at the same rate as world wrestling. Radio should be the same, music charged at the basic P&A rate. clear channel propaganda charged at world wrestling rate.

Even if the TEA party becomes history there are so many groups out there protesting the Globalists and the banksters that their reign of economic terror will come to and end by a worldly awakening.
