Now is the Time for the Tea Party to Regroup, Train and Educate

We need to reinvigorate the Tea Party more than ever, now. 

I urge all of you to find your local Tea Party chapters and become active members. If you don’t, then I don’t want to hear any of your insipid whining about how the Tea Party is dead, ineffectual, etc.

Besides the Almighty Power of God, the Tea Party is our last, best hope for preserving the America Our Founding Fathers fought and died for. The least you can do is sacrifice your time and energy to enlist and fight in the cause. America and future generations are counting on YOU!:

The Tea Party at Valley Forge
By Timothy C. Daughtry – American Thinker

The patriot movement had its Concord Bridge moment in 2010, and now it is facing its winter at Valley Forge. Both liberal and mainstream politicians are waiting to see what the patriot movement does during the harsh winter of a second Obama term.

Conservative opinion sites are buzzing with ideas about what to do now. One school of thought holds that the damage done to America in a second Obama term will be irreparable, and that the only sensible strategy is to let the system collapse under the weight of Obama’s policies, and then to rebuild afterwards. Another theme seems to be that patriots should endure, double down on our efforts, and fight on.

The first strategy hopes that a new birth of freedom will rise phoenix-like from the ashes of Obama’s policies. Ironically, that thinking can be seen as a conservative variation of the Cloward-Piven strategy that advocated the deliberate overloading of the welfare system. Out of the collapse of that system would emerge a popular demand for a guaranteed national income and fulfillment of other leftist goals.

The conservative strategy does not try to overload the system, but simply acknowledges that Obama has both the power and the plan to overload and collapse it. Liberal theorists and conservatives agree that Obama’s policies will bring our current system down; the big difference is in what we hope to see emerging from the ashes.

The phoenix strategy assumes that the dry rot of liberalism will so weaken the country after four more years that recovery will be impossible. Government control of healthcare is now firmly established, and not much stands between the radical left and control of every other aspect of our lives. The most radical regime in American history is about to make several Supreme Court appointments that will wield unchecked power for decades to come. The vote-buying spree will continue, the shrinking productive class will be taxed even more, and the national debt will go from dangerous to catastrophic. The far left controls our schools and most of the news media, so resistance to the regime’s agenda by elected patriots will be played as obstructionism and backwardness. Under that pressure, many will pull a Chris Christie and cozy up to the left for political cover.

The prescription for national collapse has been written, and the phoenix strategy suggests that we just wait for it to be filled.

The advantage of fighting to the end, on the other hand, is that patriots can always fall back on the phoenix strategy if we fail. Even if conservatives accomplish nothing more than slowing America’s decline, which is all we have really done for decades, our ideas and values will still be preserved by the conservative remnant when the reset happens.

For those patriots who choose to stay in the movement, however, we need a new strategy, and that begins with thinking differently about politics. We have to think long-term, and we have to get off defense and start playing offense.

First, the patriot movement needs to learn from success of the left’s “long march” strategy and develop a long-term mindset. In retrospect, the tea party’s landslide victory in 2010 came easily, and it probably gave the movement unrealistic expectations about 2012. The patriot movement had barely begun to organize in 2010, and yet it routed the radicals of the Obama regime as handily as that earlier generation of patriots had routed the British at Concord Bridge.

In the closing pages of Waking the Sleeping Giant: How Mainstream Americans Can Beat Liberals at Their Own Game, we warned our fellow patriots that “along the road from the victory at Concord Bridge to the victory at Yorktown lay that winter at Valley Forge.” Just as King George III would not give up control over his subjects easily, those who would rule over us today will not easily give up the benefits of power and privilege. Years of liberal rule have made America an economically and spiritually sick country, and the path back to health will not be easy or quick. Our time in Valley Forge does not mean that we are defeated, only that recovery will not happen in one generation.

There is an old military adage for leaders in dire circumstances that you have to take the situation as you find it and turn it to your advantage, and that is the challenge for the patriot movement now. Our situation is dire, so we should go on the offensive. We have to stall the left’s advance in 2014 by keeping the House and taking the Senate, and then blocking the most radical court appointees. Find our candidate for 2016 now, and start preparing for the ground game on Election Day.

The left is hoping that the tea party movement is dead. Now is the time to organize, to train, to demonstrate, and to educate a nation in distress. We have to learn how to make the left debate on our terms instead of constantly letting the left define who we are.

If we lose, there is still the phoenix strategy.

    I agree we must not throw up our hands and hand this great nation over to the Marxists,Leninists, Stalinists,, Maoists, Sociaiists and all others who endorse, subscribe, preach, and adhere to the principles and ideology of the left. At all turns a monkey wrench must be thrown into their works. Their tactics must be used against them, unfortunately we on the right must become as rude, devious and underhanded as they are. As shown in the past the Mr. nice guy approach does not work well.


  2. As I’ve said before its time to tear down the system and counter act the leftist immoral control. We as Americas need to rebuild what the soicalist / lefts have torn down and push them back to europe along with thier allies.

    At this point we’re going to need all the heads on Mt. Rushmore come down and help us.

    Red Alert!


    • LOL! Haven’t seen that “Command & Conquer: Red Alert” intro in years! Brought back a flood of memories. Good times!

      Cheers!

        There is a newer disc, C&C The First Decade, has all the Red Alert and C&C games on it. Works great on XP and ok on 32 bit 7(a bit of shadowing issues in 7 with RA and the original C&C), forget about it with 64 bit. There’s also an updated 7 disc out now, haven’t tried it though.

        BTW, no biggie on the spam filter issue.

        Don’t think I am just playing games, fiddling around while the world burns. For entertainment I still play a couple of my old games such as Red alert and Syphon Filter. I play and I listen to music, music mostly from the past, you know, good music. All the stuff I used to do I cannot for one reason or another indulge in anymore. I don’t watch TV nor go to the movies. IMO, modern entertainment is designed for morons, and I find it insulting as well. I no longer attend sporting events nor do I shop and buy new things. I try never to support the ever-increasing totalitarian machine.

        Its not that I am trying to ignore the problems all around us its just that everything I used to do disgusts me for one reason or another and other things I used to enjoy have been outlawed, this is my only way to temporarily escape from it all, briefly. Everybody needs a break here and there. These are my ways of blowing off steam, relieving tension. I find it quite calming to destroy Red armies or hunt bio terrorists. Lately I have been having nightmares about waking up in a police state or caught in the web of a world gone mad. It’s been a long time since I had nightmares but they have returned.

        BTW, do you remember the Iraqi woman in San Diego who was murdered in her home not long ago and the killer, presumably an American, left a threatening note saying go back to your country? It turns out it was exactly what I suspected, it was the husband all along. It spoke at her funeral while shedding crocodile tears, what a guy. A world gone mad, as I said.

    The two main parties just about split 50 percent of the eligible vote. Obama voters excitedly voted for Obama, twice and thrice sometimes. Many Romney voters did not so much vote for Romney as they voted against Obama. Some say, you don’t vote don’t complain and that might be ok for 10 percent, but not 50. A huge danger, no wonder the guvmint considers us all a threat. As times get harder and worse, just let the zombies try to tell that angry 50 percent, plus the Romney/anti-Obama vote, don’t complain.

  5. tgusa Says:

    Democrats are bullies bulling republicans and republicans are sissies and taking it but a majority of Americans are sick of it all, sick and tired of bullies and sissies.
    There’s the difference between the two parties.
