Start the Revolution Without Me, Or, A Civil War by Any Other Name….

Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA):

“I will remind you that this group of renegades that decided that they wanted to break from the crown in 1776 did great damage to the economy of the colonies. They created the greatest nation and the best form of government, but they did damage to the economy in the short run.”

So, now we have a Southern State Representative comparing the actions of the Tea Party with those of the leaders of the Revolutionary War.

Is this their “exit strategy”? First, destroy the economy of the United States, then break off and form their own government?

It seems no one in the Tea Party movement really looks down the road and asks themselves, “What if?” What if they succeed?

What if they create a Theocratic Confederacy of Southern and farm belt states?

What if they prevent women and the working poor from getting affordable health care?

What if these States have to live within their means, and can no longer receive more from Washingon than they pay in taxes?

What if these States had to pay for their own military?

Having destroyed the U.S. and Global Economy, how will they convince other nations to trade with them?

The Tea Party does not have any answers to these questions, primarily because they don’t ask these questions. To them, it’s all about getting their way, whatever it is at the moment, without compromise. To them, compromise means the other side must realize the Tea Party way is the Right way. They are like spoiled children with Oppositional Defiant Disorder, ADHD and bipolar disorder all wrapped into one big God-fearing hate-filled package.

And this past weekend, Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz rallied outside the Whitehouse with a Confederate Flag, protesting the government shutdown by taking down the barricade around the WWII monument. Start the revolution without me.

  1. “When Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.” ~Sinclair Lewis, 1935

    The GOP is currently undertaking the same task that for several decades belonged mostly to the Soviet Union: destroy the American government and her economy, then rebuild everything ‘closer to the heart’s desire’ — authoritarian. Always authoritarian. A consequence of the enlarged Amygdala in company of shrunken Gray Matter, the end product of which is: No more “Land of the Free, Home of the Brave” nonsense, soon to become the newly operative slogan: ACHTUNG, SIE VERLASSEN JETZT den AMERIKANISCHEN SEKTOR!

  2. People vote for these assholes. They like what they hear. Confirmation bias among other things I will refrain from using at this time.

  3. If they were to get their way, our nation would soon look like the society described in the book
    “The Handmaid’s Tale”

  4. “Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz rallied outside the Whitehouse with a Confederate Flag”

    Hmmmm, all I see is a bunch of homophobic white men dressed for halloween.
