Why The Tea Party is Not Just About Taxes Anymore

By Joseph Jones AChatterer.com

Progressives need the TEA party to only be about taxes because that would play right into their plans. If you read “You Don’t Need A Weatherman To Know Which Way The Wind Blows” you will see this. One of the things they are counting on is that people protest higher taxes and blame it on our capitalistic society rather than “Big Government”. If we were to simply use the Tea Party as a protest against high taxes we leave the door open for progressives to try to hijack the movement for their own political gain. The Tea Party has added pro small government sentiment to its movement so it is known that they do not believe Big Government can fix the problem. They have done this because Big Government is the problem and a move to a small government is needed to reach our ultimate goal of less taxes.

If you only let people know what you want fixed you are leaving it up to others to tell you how to solve the problem. Tea Party members are not merely complainers we are problem solvers. We will protest higher taxes and then we will come up with ways to resolve the problem. To simply say taxes are to high and not address the underlying issues would be useless. This is why it looks like Tea Party members are taking on more issues than it originally set out to take on. In truth all of the issues we are taking on are the direct or indirect causes of the underlying issue of high taxes. If progressives cut taxes in half but borrowed money to support their unsustainable social programs and government agencies this would technically make someone only protesting higher taxes happy. But Tea Party members understand that by doing that we go further into debt and get closer to bankrupting our country. Tea Party members want taxes lowered responsibly and because of their love of country they work together to find ways to do this without destroying it.

Simply protesting something without presenting a blueprint to achieve your ultimate goal allows others to hijack your cause. We want change but not the change the progressives have presented. The change the Tea Party is looking for is not an empty change where politicians can fill in the blanks. We are standing up to Big Government and letting it be known what kind of change we want and how the change can be obtained. We are supporting candidates who support small government and lower taxes. We are educating ourselves on the problems our country is facing and targeting the cause of these problems. A politician can still lie to our faces but now we will hold them accountable for their lies.
