End of theTea Party? I Can't Wait

By | September 30, 2011

I can’t wait until the Tea Party Movement is over! That’s right, I said it.  Not because I hate the Tea Party.  To the contrary, I love the Tea Party. I am the Tea Party. I am a young, middle class mother who is alarmed at the disastrous habits of an oversized government and feels obligated to get involved politically for the sake of my children’s futures.  I have attended several Tea Party events.  I’ve met wonderful, kind patriotic Americans who are motivated to pull this country back on the right track and preserve its status as the greatest nation on God’s green earth.

Its also not because I am sick and tired of the vile names and charges being thrown at us daily by the Mainstream Media honchos and their minions.  I don’t particularly love the slur ‘teabagger’, although I’ve been called much, much worse in my life, so I can deal with it.  I don’t particularly love being called a racist, despite the fact that I am black and have personally been subjected to true and vicious racism in my life.  I don’t love any of those things, but its not so bad as to make me wish the Tea Party would disappear forever.

No, I can’t wait for the Tea Party movement to go away because I know the passion, motivation and perseverance behind it and the day the Tea party fades into obscurity is the day the Tea Party is no longer needed in American politics.  That is the day we will declare victory and happily return to our totally average, totally American lives.  I can’t wait for that day!  I can’t wait for the day when our message has so saturated the political spectrum that we no longer need to hover over our politicians, constantly taking them to task and reminding them that they work for us.  I can’t wait for the day when Washington doesn’t need to wait for the citizens to organize en masse in order to respond to the will of the people.  I can’t wait for the day when the private sector thrives again, and the size of the government fairly reflects the prosperity of the people who supply it.  I can’t wait to pour more money into my own retirement plan than into the plans of others whom I have never met and from whom I have never received one iota of service.  I can’t wait for the day when it is second nature for politicians to recognize their direct accountability to the citizens they serve.  I can’t wait for Obamacare to be repealed, entitlements to be rolled back, spending to be permanently capped, taxes to be lowered, and a new era of ingenuity and prosperity to begin.

If I could be so privileged as to live to see the end of the Tea Party, I will gladly and humbly hang up my picket sign, take down my blog and say thank you to all the organizers, parents, bloggers, politicians and business owners who pushed so hard for so long to win back this country from the brink of socialism.  I will be satisfied knowing that I was an important part of the leaderless movement that surged forward in one of the most frustrating, stressful times in modern American history; the movement to put the political class on notice that they were no longer minding the store anymore, so they were no longer free to rob it at will.  I will retire willingly, having assured my children that, at least for the time being, the American Dream I have freely pursued is theirs to pursue also.

The Tea Party movement has been and is historical, igniting, and refreshing.  It is a privilege to be a part of such a thing and it will be an equal privilege to bid it adieu.  So whenever some Tea Party hater asks me about the eventual end of the movement, my response will be “I can’t wait, my friend. I can’t wait!

    Reading your blog was a help for me. I just want my life back too. I feel like it’s time for the Tea Party and all other conservative groups unite under a banner demanding a return to normality where the government isn’t in our face all the time. I am glad I am not alone in feeling this way.

    This. The tea party will have to go on another 100 years to roll back this tyrannical government. It’s been about that long since the start of the “new deal” and beginning of large scale government intervention and spending. Since that time, our freedoms have been stripped away, a little at a time, year by year. We will never see freedom of the past in our lifetimes, and I’m mid-twenties.

    Liberalism will never die! We must always be vigilant in our fight against it and never fall asleep again. Our children and grandchildren must be raised to keep up the good fight!

    That said, I can relate to your sentiments. We will be able to live in peace and be untroubled only when Christ comes back. Eternity with our heavenly Father will be sweet!

    I like your style in expressing your desires to have an America that is one day totally united in restoring America to her rightful place as the beacon of freedom in the world, and therefore the Tea party will no longer be needed. Sadly, the idea of our citizenry ever being informed enough to turn back the tide of creeping Socialism in America is implausible at best, when looking at the indoctrination into the big government nanny state ideology that our children are being force fed 24/7 due to the NEA and their Union’s constant propaganda.

    The minute the Tea Party grassroots Americans stop doing due diligence is the day Liberals take back over our government in a heart beat. History proves this. I do not call myself a teapartier per se, but I am a dedicated Patriotic American who loves his country and wants the same freedoms opportunity for prosperity that we grew up with to be available to future generations. I feel we have to be ever vigilant from here on out no matter what they call us. We have learned a very hard lesson on just how fast this country can slip towards the failed socialistic policies that have ravaged other countries throughout history.

    I view the tea Party as simply a label, no more no less. The real grassroots action takes place at the voting booths and across the land in places like CDN here where citizen journalists share information at the speed of light in order to help the uninformed public understand the dangers of the Liberal Socialist Party running our country right into the ground today.

      Well put to both of you. The Tea Party grew out of necessity, and will only go away once the necessity has been satisfied.

      I just love hearing the left bemoan the 41 senate filibuster, some calling for it’s removal altogether. They sure won’t be saying that after the 2012 elections, when they find themselves on the corner without a can to crap in.
