Why does the Tea Party love the uber-rich but hate Americans?

TheBorg 2011/09/04 03:23:32

You often hear the Republican-Tea party claim that President
Obama and/or Democrats and/or Liberals and/or anyone who is not a Republican-tea party member (including moderates), “Hate America!”



Here is a list of ways that the Republican-Tea party showed
us that while they claim to “Love America,” they really hate Americans.



1. When the Republican-Tea party in Congress refused to
extend unemployment benefits at a time of very high unemployment unless
millionaires and billionaires got to keep their tax cuts, they showed us that
they hate unemployed Americans.



2. When Governor Rick Perry and the Republican-Tea party
controlled Texas Legislature chose to lay off thousands of teachers all across
Texas rather than increase taxes or use more of the rainy day fund, they showed
us that they hate American teachers and students.





3. In 2004 when then State Senator Michele Bachmann said,
“If you’re involved in the gay and lesbian lifestyle, it’s bondage. It is
personal bondage, personal despair and personal enslavement.” She showed us
that she hates gay and lesbian Americans.



4. When the Republican-Tea party chose cuts to social
programs that help many Americans just trying to get by rather than cuts to tax
subsidies for corporate jets and oil companies, they showed us that they hate
poor and disabled Americans.



5. When the Republican-Tea party such as Presidential
Candidates Herman Cain and Former Speaker Newt Gingrich, Representatives Allen
West and Peter King, and many others sought to deny freedom of religion to
Muslim Americans by claiming that they shouldn't be allowed to build a mosque,
they showed us that they hate Muslim Americans.



6. When the Republican-Tea party stripped the collective
bargaining rights of union workers in Wisconsin and elsewhere, they showed us
that they hate American union workers.



7. When the Republican-Tea party in Congress sought to turn
Social Security to a voucher program and The Republican-Tea party in the Texas
Legislature cut funds to nursing homes to balance a budget deficit, they showed
us they hate senior Americans.



8. When the Republican-Tea party in Congress and state
legislatures across the country sought to remove funding family planning
centers and the Women’s Health Initiative, they showed us that they hate
American women.



9. When the Republican-Tea party in Arizona, Texas, Alabama,
and several other states passed laws that discriminate against ethnic Americans
in the name of national security, they showed us that they hate Ethnic
Americans and especially hate Hispanic, Middle Eastern, and Asian Americans.



10. When the Republican-Tea party sought and continue to
seek to remove funding from the EPA, they showed us that they hate breathing
Americans.



There you have it. The Republican-Tea party may love
America, but they hate Americans.

You!

    The tea party delusion that they are fighting for America is so strongly engrained that the truth that they are actually undermining this country for the benefit a very small entrenched wealthy minority will never reach them.



    The small group of millionaires and billionaires that founded and finance the tea party are trying to turn back the clock to a time before world war two when there was a very small middle class and using the words workers rights could get you beaten, blacklisted or just killed. It was a paradise for wealthy people the law defended them even when they committed criminal acts and it punished anyone that stood up for justice or just got in the way.

    This is pretty much what is going on now where only person that has gone to jail over the sub-prime mess was someone that lied on their mortgage application. The actual malefactors like Jamie Dimon have gotten off without even a slap on the wrist and in Dimon's case he went on to do even more damage. Eventually these same culprits will collapse the economy again mainly because they made so much money doing it the last time and nobody went to jail so for them at least there was no downside.

    "The Tea party seeks for Americans to have freedom from government oppression"... and supplant it with billionaire, multinational corporation oppression.

    No the part you (and many others tend to forget) is that the corporations don't have the power of law to force me to give them my money. There are also laws (imperfect granted) that prohibit them from from killing stealing etc.

    Wow! your ignorance is amazing. They have more power than most politicians! They have the power to buy government officials, place judges in positions that benefit corporations over people. They get corporate employees key jobs in presidential administrations. They have direct access to politicians even though their constituency does not. They fund groups that undermine state sovereignty like Americans for Prosperity and American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). And the list goes on and on....

    Acorn? There is corruption in DC, but it will not be fixed by created more debt, more government and additional violations of the Constitution.

    435 members of congress and you are worried about the 30or so that align with the Tea Party? This is really getting to be hilarious.

    Do you want to be saddled with the responsibility of how retarded this list is or do you want the real author to get it?
    Because, I'm good either way.
