Let Tea Party principles spur GOP to victory in '14

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | For those who've forgotten--one man, an employee of CNBC, spontaneously lit a fire under the fledgling Tea Party. In response to the Obama Administration's decisions to reward bad behavior by making us pay mortgages for people who overbought homes, Rick Santelli's rant was a rallying cry to sane Americans all over the fruited plains.

Santelli's tirade, cheered on by traders on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange where he was broadcasting from, stimulated a people's movement— those of us who deplore tyrannically large government. His screed was as basic as the original Tea Party's revolt against taxation without representation. Rick's outburst took place in February, 2009 just as the tragic policies of Barack Hussein Obama were beginning to corrode America, its citizens and its relationship to the rest of the world.

Rick connected with a whole lot of Americans that day. These are the everyday Joes and Janes who knew the Socialist gobbledygook hawked by Obama and his commissars in the Democratic Party was totally disproven by history. There hasn't been one country who has succeeded with those principles. Further, 110,000,000 were killed or starved as a result of those Communist/Socialist policies, just in the last century.

Since Santelli's diatribe, there's been the no-recovery-recovery, failed bailouts, a disastrous foreign policy and an onslaught of lies about our health care that even made Bill Clinton blush and scold the President.

As Obama sinks further in the polls and Dem Congressmen up for reelection are panicking, we need people from the Republican Party who aren't gonna kiss their arses every time they utter typical Dem argument—you know, like calling you an old white racist.

Never turn your back on a person who has already stabbed you there

In a righteous world, Obama would have lost to Romney in 2012. It was many of our opinions that a can of tomato soup could have beat him. The reality is that Republicans need do a little more than just show up to draw out the vote.

I still hold out that Romney and McCain's defeat may even benefit us in the long run. We have now witnessed five of the worst governed years in America's history.

There's a reason why the American people like fighters. It's evidenced by the 60,000 fans who showed up in Green Bay in sub-zero temperatures to watch a determined Packer team play a defiant San Francisco 49er Football club. Imagine the gall of SF QB, Kyle Kaepernick going sleeveless in such weather. Why, how dare he be so bold, so condescending to the long-sleeved champions of the frozen tundra, the Green Bay Packers?

Yet, he stood up to them, him and his West Coasters and whipped the Pack in their own ice-laden fort. He faced those people with his team in front of him having understood their culture and was able to defeat them, despite the tricks of the game sent his way.

He understood the culture of the other side. He knew them inside and out. He led his team to defeat them with a flair of his own that showed he knew their strengths and their weaknesses.

Those are the kinds of candidates we want on our team.

Santelli urged us to get pumped way back in 2009. Don't you think it's time to roll up our sleeves or rip them off like Kaepernick and go toe to toe, insult to insult, dollar for dollar, against the Socialist/Communist hordes?

Yes, we can still be nice guys---and we can win in '14.
