Why the Tea Party Will Fail

Some wishful thinking from a Tea Party hater:

The Tea Partiers will fail because for them to succeed we would need to shred the US Constitution and start over. That would require a revolution, and that’s not going to happen.

You just have to examine what they stand for. They claim to be strict constitutionalists, but they can’t stop screaming that what Democrats are doing is unconstitutional – against the will of the people.

The Tea Partiers must have forgotten that Democrats won two elections – one in 2006 and another one in 2008.

Obama and Congressional Democrats campaigned on health care reform. So it’s disingenuous for the Tea Partiers to now claim that Democrats are defying the will of the people by pursuing the agenda that they campaigned on.

Time to school another left-wing hatriot.

First, let’s remember that elections never authorize Congress to abuse the constitution.

Second, Obama and Congressional Democrats did NOT campaign on ObamaCare’s key ingredients: the Cornhusker Kickback, Gatoraid, the Louisiana Purchase, backroom deals with BigPharma…or the unconstitutional “individual mandate.” (In fact, Obama rightly campaigned against the individual mandate.)

Polls have made it very clearObamaCare is not the health care reform Americans had in mind when Democrats were campaigning in 2008.

Pelosi and her cronies campaigned against the “culture of corruption” and promised “open and honest government.” I’m still waiting for that. The American people are still waiting for that. And we’ll all remember the bribes and broken promises when we show up to vote in November.

But the left-wing extremists don’t seem to care about the indignation of the American people. They temporarily assembled a caucus in Congress barely big enough to override the objections of the people, and they seized as much unconstitutional power as possible, as fast as they possibly could.

The problem with the left is that the left has no respect for the Constitution―the very document through which the people loan their power to the president and to Congress. The radical left defied the Constitution in order to advance their unpopular and reckless health care agenda, and now they’re flaunting their disregard for the constraints of the supreme law of the land.

The Tea Party movement is a megaphone for those who have been disenfranchised by the radical left. That’s why the Tea Party will succeed.
