Unsure of the New American Tea Parties

You just knew this was coming. New American Tea Party

Tea Party U.S.A.: The movement grows
"Seattle on Monday. Denver on Tuesday. Mesa AZ on Wednesday. Overland Park, Kansas today. What a week, huh? We got the anti-stimulus, anti-entitlement protest ball rolling — and now the movement, spurred further by CNBC host Rick Santelli’s call for a “Chicago Tea Party,” is really taking off."

St. Louis Tea Party At the Arch -- Friday at 11:00 AM

"St. Louis area conservatives will host a protest against the Obama Generational Theft Act this Friday at 11 AM at the steps of the St. Louis Gateway Arch."
I am Extremely happy that the other side is finally rallying. It will help counteract the so called Moonbats. A much needed step.

It am also rather proud the the local 97.1 Talk is getting recognized by so many. Allman Is much more logical than most. He doesn't use the name calling, is on point and usually gets the root of the issues.

Rick Santelli's Rant spins on. He is a wall street guy so his credibility with some is zero. They want to say he is just arguing for wall street. It missed the point. He is arguing for economic freedom, it need to be put in that context. Just ad the "porkulus" Should be. STOP calling it that please.

That is the fundamental flaw with this.

Tea Party USA Watch: Taxpayers coming together

"Tons of groups and individuals are stepping up to the plate in the wake of last week’s anti-stimulus/anti-entitlement protests and the call for a nationwide Tea Party."

The info page of the Tea Parties on PJTV
"America is on the brink of another revolution. In a new American Tea Party, citizens across the USA are beginning to protest giant government programs that reach deep into their pockets. These programs create huge economic burdens on American families and threaten their livelihood now and into the future."

Anti-stimulus/ Anti-entitlement? Deep into their pockets? This is the same old Republican arguments. Truthfully I want a more Libertarian argument. Your singing to the choir. I will not get you very far. I am concerned that these will be painted as conservative dogma and nothing more. Those in power don't have to fight off any argument they have been for the pas few weeks. Again I am voicing my objection to who is leading this movement. They are going to be painted with a very similar brush to the one Conservative paint the crazy left. It will all be a fringe blip.

Is it not better to make a clear economic freedom ( don't call it free market) and social freedom case. It covers ever thing that is on the table and everything that is to come. Do not say founding father, use specific names. No porkulus comments. No more Generational Theft. Track ever thing back as quick as you can to those two points. We need to vastly smarter and have a more carefully though basic out public argument.

You want a revolution act like it. No Freaken Republican Revolution. We need a pre-FDR, Wilson revolution. A sane Libertarian one. I (and the people) will not be on a Republican, Malkin, Hannity, Rush revolution. That is not really a revolution.
