The Tea Party Express Is Useless
By Jerry A. Kane
Democrats control the executive and legislative branches of the federal government, and they have been relentlessly forcing socialism down the craw of the American people because progressives are in total control of the Democrat Party.
To solve the problem, simply vote out the Democrats and strip the power from the progressives. So what in the name of Sam Hill are the leaders of the Tea Party Express trying to prove by endorsing Idaho Democrat Walt Minnick for Congress?
Although little love is lost between Minnick and his fellow Democrats in DC and Idaho, the truth is he supports big government programs, not limited government, and isn’t the growth of federal government the real source of frustration for the tea party faithful?
Minnick voted against the resolution to remove Charlie Rangel as chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee for ethics violations and against the Republican Study Committee’s (RSC’s) blueprint to restrain spending and to reduce the budget.
But the indelible stain on Minnick is that he voted for Nancy Pelosi as speaker in 2008. His vote for the stalwart progressive proves he can’t be trusted. He’ll get in line like Bart Stupak and fall on the sword if his vote is required to advance the progressive agenda.
The idea of party loyalty suggests that a conservative Republican will do more to stop the progressive onslaught than a “conservative” Democrat, so why then would the Tea Party Express leaders endorse an Idaho Democrat over conservative Republicans for an important congressional seat?
Perhaps the leaders are so inept that they can’t piece together how the machinations of Pelosi and Harry Reid control their fellow Democrats to advance Brother O’s progressive agenda, or they don’t view the progressive one-party rule as a problem.
