I want to sound a word of caution about this "Tea Party" and "Town Hall Meeting" phenomenon taking place around the country.
From some of the rhetoric associated with these events, it would be easy to assume that social issues like abortion are an important factor behind them. Regrettably, however, that assumption is incorrect. Yes, there are many people involved with these events who are staunchly pro-life and it is not uncommon to see a strong pro-life presence at them. But make no mistake about it, the driving force here is money. If these people were to suddenly conclude that Obama's monetary policies are going to make our economy sing, the Tea Parties and Town Hall Meeting would quickly fade into history.
Having said that, let me make it clear that I am not suggesting that what these people are doing is either unimportant or wrong. It is neither. The fact is, the America we all grew up in is being destroyed by corrupt politicians in Washington, DC, who are nothing less than traitors. Right before our eyes, our nation is being transformed from a capitalist nation devoted to freedom and equality of opportunity into one that will require us to grovel at the feet of godless Marxism. And while this march toward an amoral collectivist society did not begin with the Obama administration, only an idiot could not have noticed the pace has accelerated exponentially since January.
It is now clear that, unless we reverse course, we could all wake up in two or three years living in an America we no longer recognize. If it comes to that, we will be in a frightening place where the love of our country has become secondary to the fear of our government. And the Tea Parties and Town Hall Meetings are a needed and appropriate response to this crisis. They provide a venue where these pompous elitists in Congress and the White House can be reminded that we are not their serfs, but that they are our hired hands.
The point is, even as we acknowledge that the Tea Parties and Town Hall Meetings are a good thing, we should not forget that they were born out of the fear of a financial collapse of our country and not its moral and cultural collapse. The reality is, their leaders never organized similar events to help the unborn and, if the time ever comes that they no longer perceive Obama to be a threat to their wallets, they'll go home, drop the unborn in the grease, and we will never hear from them again.
