“It’s been so helpful to the Republican Party in the past. It saved it by not going third party in 2010, helping the Republicans sweep the House. But the Tea Party style of rage is not one that wins over converts and makes people lean towards them and say, ‘I want to listen to you.’ I think a friendly persuasion has to begin now from the Republican Party to people of the United States.”
Thanks for the condescension, Peggy; we’re glad to “help.” While you sit among the DC lily white clouds, remember this: The energy within the Tea Party is beyond rage. Until you understand and appreciate that America is in a post-constitutional era and — I hate to say this — a soft tyranny, this “rage” will only grow until the Left is removed from positions of power and elite faux intellectuals like you are relegated to MSNBC to talk to your audience of 12.
Take our situation seriously, Peggy. We could use someone with your talents.

I’m not just saying this to be inflammatory but this guy, Glenn W. Smith, has a mental condition. How could anyone get so many Leftist talking points packed into so little space, and not have need an evaluation of some kind?

If the Occupy Wall Street other similar protesters are frustrated with the economy, they can lay the blame at the Democrats’ feet. Specifically, they should point their derision at President Obama who, by his actions and inaction, has taken a hard financial situation — much of it caused by Democrats — and made it worse.
There are stark contrasts between the Occupiers and the Tea Party in terms of both direction and how they present themselves. Put simply, the former wants things without earning them, concentrating more on complaining about the problem than offering a tangible solution, and leaves behind a wave of waste, racism, violence, and arrest records. The latter would prefer to go about their lives unfettered, trusting that all levels of government adhere to the limited authority given them, but instead see a level of intrusion so antithetical to the American way of life that they are bound to rein in the charge away from liberty.
Whenever you see a Tea Party you do not see racism or violence, but a peaceful and patriotic voicing of opinion, and a dedication to cleaning up after themselves. Yet we have a bygone and wholly slanted media intent on forcing the image of the Occupiers onto the Tea Party.
Cut through the media narrative, and pay attention to what each group stands for or against. From their solutions see what will bring America back to prosperity, or continue its path to financial and cultural ruin.
