Apparently, Sarah Palin and Senator John McCain made several appearances this past weekend in the Southwest appealing to the labeled "tea baggers" for next fall’s election for the Republican Party.
It has been interesting how the media continues to paint this group, which had its beginnings as a grass roots organization of citizens who had become increasingly dissatisfied with the Bush Administration and its big government, big spending programs, and continuation of the War in Iraq for political purposes, rather than as a redress of 9-11.
And also many who were outraged when the McCain-Kennedy 2006 attempts once again to legalize the illegal Mexicans in this country, especially, was being promoted by Bush and sponsored by Senator McCain prior to his run for the presidential office.
The tea baggers at this point, however, appear to have been taken over by the Fox brand, and its more British style of conservatism in a great many of its Fox supporters such as Glenn Beck and Ms. Palin.
Since the Boston Tea Party, upon which the name for this group has been attached by both political parties, was not simply about taxation but was also about global corporate interests that were compromising both America’s sovereignty, and also having an undue influence with the King of Great Britain that was negatively impacting the lives and even choices of those first patriots.
Little has been said that many in this group while outraged at the continuing interference of the federal government in matters best left to the states, and also in violation of the Bill of Rights which was secured for the citizenry in order to keep the federal government from having any significant impact on the citizens daily lives, have been rather silent insofar as the merging of our economy with all of Europe, and even China, progressively which is also what has adversely impacted this nation and, if truth be told, also what has lead to a great many of these terrorism attacks.
Not simply religious differences of those radical Muslims, but also our support for Israel, whether right or wrong, and continued economic and military support for literally decades now after World War II.
When to many in this country, it is clearly time to cut the apron strings with Israel since they now have a standard of living that far exceeds that of the United States thanks to all that foreign aid we have given them without repayment, and also their own nuclear capabilities which were developed during the Johnson Administration so many years ago doesn’t exactly leave them defenseless.
And let Britain now shoulder the burden as having entered into the original accord and being the major player in Israel’s inception based on an agreement that was entered into even prior to World War I.
America is hurting, and was attacked in the most egregious breach of national security since World War II almost nine long years ago, and it doesn’t appear any Israeli fighters are assisting this country in either Iraq or Afghanistan from any public announcements from either the U.S. or Israel.
As far as this boomer, it is interesting as a true Conservative that prior to the amalgamization of our economy with the rest of the world’s, there weren’t these terrorism attacks at all.
In fact, when there were limited ports of entry for international flights, and true border security with the federal government doing their job also in deporting any and all that were here illegally as soon as the local authorities in most of those border states picked them up or discovered their immigration status, those attempts on American lives were zilch with the exception of the Americans which were detained and jailed while traveling to other nations.
Or offered assylum to so many of those who have been displaced in all these continuing wars such as Viet Nam, Bosnia, and now Iraq, who will continue to have ties to their home countries and mixed feelings, I’m sure, about this country due to even their reasons for being here.
Before foreigners owned our airlines, and even now our nuclear reactors, shares of which are now sold over the global exchange, and these progressive interventionist wars since World War II initiated mostly by the Democrats in the past, but now by both of the political parties which have hijacked our government also progressively, America’s economy boomed as the leader in the industrialized world.
In other words, privatizing governmental functions in this world government U.N. dominated scenario, or affording foreign investment in America’s vital infrastructure progressively for those Wall Street wheeler dealers and European bankers, is costing untold thousands of American lives at this point – in both jobs, and as with our open borders now even nine years after 9-11, American lives.
Or affording more and more global corporate interests to compete with American domestic ones without regulation or restraint, such as AIG, and all those European banks and foreign governments that are allowed to invest in some of America’s vital industries, for good or ill.
Mr. McCain still supports legalizing those who have crossed our borders illegally enmass from all reports, and also leaving those borders open for the benefit mostly of those global and domestic national corporations and campaign backers, and Ms. Palin has not taken a definitive stand on where she also stands on that border fencing under the Secure Fence Act – especially now that Ms. Napolitano has once again withheld funding for any further border fencing until a "cost/benefit" analysis is once again done.
Not simply getting that low cost physical barrier finished across those five hundred miles of open desert, and reinstituting the procedures that were used when I was growing up in Phoenix prior to the first Reagan amnesty, which actually is what has lead to what is occurring today and the number which continues to grow daily, weekly and monthly.
In a bad American economy, that tax free foreign labor is actually more attractive, not less so, all reports to the contrary by the mainstream media – many of whom are heavily invested also in some of those industries which import or contract with both the Far Easterners in the tech field, and those construction workers from Mexico.
Has anyone noticed how many foreign doctors are now practicing in most of the hospitals throughout the country, if you or a relative have been in the hospital recently.
Especially those huge multi-state health care networks and chains.
With that Reagan’s amnesty, there also was little attempt, outside of El Paso and San Diego, to truly secure our southern borders in any manner whatsoever.
It would appear to me that once again, as with the last presidential election, campaign promises are being made to some pretty desperate people at this point without any true foundation in some of those positions from either the last presidential election, or even stated positions and votes.
But doesn’t appear most of them, at least those that are true Conservatives, will be fooled once again – with the exception now of those "corporate" tea baggers which have infilitrated due to those corporate Fox connections – who see the movement once again for political purposes and ratings, that is quite clear, again, to most true American (not British) Conservatives.
You see, small businesses and free trade domestically is one thing.
But huge global and corporate interests undermining the American domestic security and economy, and American way of life similar to that British East India Company which can be likened actually to the AIG of today, is something else entirely.
And taxing Americans on both their labor, and then also on every single thing they then purchase with what is left from that labor, and even now criminalizing and fining Americans for not purchasing those global corporate scammers products, has raised the hackles of not simply those "baggers," but Americans across the political spectrum.
Except, of course, those that will profit once again in the tech and medical/industrial complex which costs ultimately will far exceed now even the costs that have progressively bankrupted many an American due to also frivolous wars on behalf of foreign nations since World War II, and those open borders in the border states whose costs for the life, health and auto insurance right now have stripped many of their homes, and jobs.
And it is the boomers most of all that are being sacraficed for the "greater good," by a young President and a Congress, many of whom have been progressively a part of this global agenda for literally decades and some new kids on the Beltway block, that cannot see the forest for the trees.
Or even some of those corporate commercial baggers from the true Conservative patriots.
