Obama is primarily responsible for the Tea Party movement, despite the fact that it is the nemesis of the President and the political establishment.
The movement is predominantly composed of a small number of Libertarians and a large number of Conservatives. The Tea Party Conservatives are formerly Conservative Republicans who have given up the notion of having a moral government and are tired of funding an immoral government. They are disconnecting from the Republican establishment, which today seems more comfortable managing big government than ultimately reducing it. Herein lies their commonality with Libertarians. The Tea Party is thus at the vertex of this confluence that emphasizes as its central theme the notion that the U.S. must return to a Constitutionally limited federal government.
The catalyst of this political migration is Obama’s stated goal of a “fundamental transformation of America.” Indeed, the Tea Party can most accurately be described as a popular revolt and instinctive response to such statements from this administration. Obama’s speech on the national debt reinforced the logic behind the movement; the President’s extremist economic goals further imperil our nation’s already dire fiscal situation.
“The fourth step in our approach is to reduce spending in the tax code. In December, I agreed to extend the tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans because it was the only way I could prevent a tax hike on middle-class Americans. But we cannot afford $1 trillion worth of tax cuts for every millionaire and billionaire in our society. And I refuse to renew them again.
“Beyond that, the tax code is also loaded up with spending on things like itemized deductions. And while I agree with the goals of many of these deductions, like homeownership or charitable giving, we cannot ignore the fact that they provide millionaires an average tax break of $75,000 while doing nothing for the typical middle-class family that doesn’t itemize.”
By referring to deductable expenses as “spending in the tax code,” the President indicated his belief that a person’s income is for the discretionary use of government, or for whatever Obama deems our nations “investments.” This then clarifies the enormous difference between the beliefs of the contemporary Democratic Left and those of free-market capitalists. The former believe that an individual’s labor product is a resource that belongs to the state, which may then be allocated, or, more accurately, appropriated it in a manner that it sees fit. The latter argue that a person’s labor belongs to them and them alone, and are thus the ultimate deciders of its fate.
“But let me be absolutely clear: I will preserve these health care programs as a promise we make to each other in this society. I will not allow Medicare to become a voucher program that leaves seniors at the mercy of the insurance industry, with a shrinking benefit to pay for rising costs. I will not tell families with children who have disabilities that they have to fend for themselves. We will reform these programs, but we will not abandon the fundamental commitment this country has kept for generations.”
The “fundamental commitment” that Obama speaks of is not a promise that American citizens made to one another. Rather, it is a promise Obama and the Left made to people who take from the system and a promise paid for by people who provide that system with money. This is possible because the voters who take far outnumber the voters who pay. Obama’s promise is that he will use force to take from a few to provide for the many in exchange for their political support. This he calls “courage.”
Today, fewer than 10 percent of Americans provide almost all federal income tax revenues. As it so happens, Obama and the Democratic party’s chief constituency is part of the 90 percent who think the top 10 percent can afford higher taxes. This explains why the Left defines democracy as the power for those who take from the system to decide how to spend the money of those who pay for the system. Over the years, this concept has been dressed up in all too many guises; social justice; economic justice; economic democracy, social democracy, and others.
The Tea Party emerged out of the fact that this narrow definition of democracy has grown steadily and unchallenged ever since Obama began campaigning for President. The Democratic Party has slowly built its base upon a dependency class, all while the Republican Party has provided only a modicum of resistance. This has set the national interest on drastically divergent paths and shattered American history’s political status quo.
Most importantly, however, it has allowed for the rise of political migrants who desire a return to the founding principles that made our nation prosperous in the first place and produced the wealth and power that the political class now seeks to redistribute to itself.

The Campaigner-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama launched his $1 billion re-election campaign yesterday. This is the first shot in what will be the most important battle in modern day politics and one that will determine the future of our great republic.
Consider this: In just 2 years, Obama took over much of the American healthcare system, auto industry, banking industry, housing industry and student loan industry among others. His Administration’s pro-European style government added a whopping $3.6 TRILLION to the national debt. THIS WAS JUST TWO YEARS! Now just imagine what 8 years would bring.
His campaign is expected to break all records with a campaign fund eclipsing $1 billion. Much of this money will come from his comrades in Big Labor. That’s right, a bulk of his campaign cash will come from the very unions we are fighting right now in Wisconsin, Ohio, Florida, Indiana and many other states.
We have been fighting to expose the radical Obama agenda from the beginning and have been leading the fight against the union protestors in these key states.
Our ads and videos are reminding the American people that their tax dollars pay the salaries of these public union protestors that skip work to demand more benefits and higher pay even though they already receive more than the private sector.
If we are to stop Obama’s reelection and derail his radical agenda we must not back down from this important fight. Make no mistake the battle being fought against the unions in the states is the first critical battle of 2012.
Now it is time to move this fight to a bigger stage. To successfully expose Big Labor corruption and to counter their millions of forced dues being spent to elect big government, Obama Democrats – WE MUST THINK BIG AND ACT EVEN BIGGER.
I have developed a MULTI-PRONGED STRATEGY that will tell the American public the truth about union waste and abuse and will fully expose their socialist agenda that has deeply infected the political establishment.
- We are going to produce a short, explosive documentary on unions and their destructive impact on the American social, economic and political system. We produced a similar film last fall, Breaking Point that redefined the historic November election for conservatives.
- We are going to continue to produce our campaign style TV ads to support our fearless leaders taking the fight to their states. The Wisconsin ad produced by our creative team was dubbed by pollster Frank Luntz as the only ad that truly worked during that fight. He said “This is one of the rare times in American politics today when a very clear, very tough message appeals across the political spectrum… They set the proper context… They set the proper tone.”
With your help, we will produce this documentary, create more ads and buy massive chunks of national and local airtime to expose the truth to the entire American public.
Our 30 Minute Documentary will expose the government unions and permanently change the public perception of union leadership in this country.
Our team is sorting through hours of video footage showing union violence and union leaders talking about their power and political influence over the very government officials who determine their wages and benefits.
Everyone deserves to see this video footage and our important research.
If we can get this information in front of the American people we will severely limit their ability to strong-arm the political and electoral system for decades.
We have done this before and with your help we will do it again!
The fight against public sector unions has moved into 20 states including: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Iowa, Indiana, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Tennessee and Washington. More measures are being introduced every day!
The battle in WISCONSIN and OHIO is still far from over. If we don’t turn the tide in the battle for public opinion we will ultimately lose these once thought victories.
Labor leaders and their Democrat pawns in Ohio have started a massive effort to repeal the bill through a ballot initiative and launched multiple court challenges.
A liberal judge in Wisconsin ordered “no further implementation” of the legislation. The Unions have launched a viscous boycott against more than 200 job creating companies and are now resorting to BLACKMAIL telling companies to either post a pro-union sign in your shop’s window or you will make the list!
Additionally the Wisconsin unions are getting significant momentum with their re-call campaign against 6 Republican senators and running an incredible smear campaign against conservative Supreme Court Justice David Prosser to switch the balance of the court that will ultimately decide the fate of Wisconsin’s legislation.
We have a great opportunity before us but we must turn the tide in public opinion. We can do it!
Please FORWARD THIS EMAIL to your friends and colleagues. We need as many conservatives as possible to help combat the millions being spent by Big Labor!!
If we are to succeed in stopping the corrupt unions and their socialist agenda from bankrupting our country we must capitalize on our momentum and fight this multi-state battle with a message that reaches everyone across the political spectrum.
Winning the battle for public opinion is essential to winning this fight!
When we finally declare victory, the American public will fully understand that there is no such thing as a “Right to Collective Bargaining” and we will have permanently changed the public perception of unions in this country.
Please help us buy massive chunks of national and local airtime and expose the truth about unions to the entire American public.
We must not let Big Labor’s smear tactics and the media’s unabashed bias turn the tide.
We must win the critical public opinion battle. This can only be accomplished through a massive outreach effort that exposes and disseminates the truth about the corrupt unions to every audience possible. We must also continue to rally behind and support our brave elected officials and their heroic efforts across the country to regain fiscal control and save their states from bankruptcy.
Big Labor is raising millions of dollars (transferring taxpayer dollars) to support Obama liberals. If we are to ensure the defeat of the Obama’s agenda in 2012 we must defeat the unions now.
If everyone knew what you and I know about the unions, there would never be another liberal Democrat elected President in America. Please help us make this happen.
Together we will win the public opinion battle and provide the needed cover for our brave elected officials to succeed in this noble fight for America’s future.
Yours for America,
THE UNION AND THE LEFT ARE ON THE ATTACK AND HAVE BEEN CAUGHT ON TAPE REVEALING THEIR PLAN!!!!
THERE IS NOW SHOCKING AUDIO OF BOLSHEVIK STYLED PLOT BY A FORMER SEIU OFFICIAL, Stephen Lerner, DETAILING THE STRATEGY TO DESTABILIZE AMERICA!!!!!
According to Business Insider and The Blaze:
“Lerner said that unions and community organizations are, for all intents and purposes, dead. The only way to achieve their goals, therefore–the redistribution of wealth and the return of “$17 trillion” stolen from the middle class by Wall Street–is to “destabilize the country.”
Lerner’s plan is to organize a mass, coordinated “strike” on mortgage, student loan, and local government debt payments–thus bringing the banks to the edge of insolvency and forcing them to renegotiate the terms of the loans. This destabilization and turmoil, Lerner hopes, will also crash the stock market, isolating the banking class and allowing for a transfer of power.”
We here at the National Republican Trust PAC have been on the evidence trail of this for over a year! As you know, we are the only group fighting the unions directly…
Now more than ever we need to get this ad and others like it we are now working on out nationwide on mainstream news outlets….. As I told you last week, we are also working on a documentary exposing the unions left wing agenda before it is too late!
Please go here now to help us bring this important message to the rest of America…
IF WE DON’T STOP THIS COMMUNIST STYLE ATTACK ON OUR COUNTRY IT WILL INSURE OBAMA’S REELECTION AND WOULD BE THE END OF OUR COUNTRY AS WE KNOW IT.
GO HERE TO JOIN THE FIGHT, AS I HAVE SAID BEFORE THIS MAY BE OUR LAST OPPORTUNITY TO SAVE OUR COUNTRY AND ALL THAT YOU HAVE WORKED FOR…
Yours for America,
