As far as I'm concerned -- the Tea Party can go straight to hell. -- Maxine Waters
The Tea Party can go straight to hell? Americans should say a prayer of thanks for the Tea Party. We have a 14 trillion dollar debt, 100 trillion dollars in unfunded Medicare/Social Security liabilities, and we're on pace to have a 1.5 trillion dollar deficit this year. We've also lost our AAA credit rating for the first time since 1917 and we're following in the footsteps of countries in Western Europe, like Greece, that have already gone bankrupt.
If we don't make some big changes in this country, not just taxing the rich, but making some big spending cuts, do you know what the future of this country is going to look like in 20-30 years? The whole country will look like Detroit, you'll need a wheelbarrow full of cash to buy a loaf of bread, and our children will have no future because they'll be debt slaves to the Chinese and everyone else who holds our bonds. We're headed towards financial Armageddon, towards living in a Mad Max world, and it's no longer so far off in the future that we don't have to worry about it. Most of the people reading this post WILL LIVE TO SEE IT.
Politicians like Maxine Waters, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, Joe Biden, and Barack Obama would keep telling you all is well until your Social Security check bounces at the bank and you have to start growing potatoes in your front yard so you'll have something to eat during the winter. Truthfully, other than men of principle like Jim DeMint, Rand Paul, Jeb Hensarling, Paul Ryan and a few others, the Republican Party wouldn't be much better because most members of the GOP lack the courage of their convictions.
If not for the Tea Party DEMANDING that we start dealing with this issue right now, America would be headed to hell on a shutter and nobody would have the muscle to make the politicians do something about it. Thirty years from now, if the country hasn't gone bankrupt and if your children still have a bright future, it'll be because a bunch of regular Americans had the courage to stand up and demand we do the right thing for our country -- even though they were maligned, demonized, and attacked for it by socialists, parasites, pseudo-intellectuals, and professional poverty pimps like Maxine Waters.
So again, Maxine Waters may say to hell with the Tea Party, but Americans who care about the future of this country should be saying, "Thank you, God, for allowing the Tea Party to rise up; thank you, God, for giving us that much of a chance to save this nation."
