Washington joins forces and attacks the Tea Party
Washington insiders and their media outlets blame the Tea Party for a foolhardy plan
The GOP breaks with its base and joins with the Democrats and Obama by ending the shutdown and extending the debt ceiling. With the media comparing the most recent shutdown to the shutdown in 1995, the Republicans showed that they have the no backbone, no principles and that they lack the skills for the street fighting tactics of the community organizer in the White House. “The GOP is so fearful of the media that they bring shame upon themselves by their continual inability to stand for constitutional governance. They simply rolled over to Obama’s demands,” a group of Town Criers remarked. The Town Criers are a committee of the Saint Augustine Tea Party (SATP). [See “A look at Town Crier’s history” in this publication August 26, 2013] The committee appears weekly on the streets of the historic district of St. Augustine, Florida. They engage a national audience there. The Tea Party movement is vested in the people whose acceptance of the Tea Party presence can be seen in the photograph above.
The view from the street
While Washington insiders and the GOP leadership turn their back on the Tea Party, the American people are joining forces with the Tea Party movement. Sen. Ted Cruz, of Texas, has been championing the people’s cause in Washington. “The Senator claims that he speaks for the people. From our experience, he truly does. Republicans like Sen. McCain and Karl Rove speak for progressives and elitists in Washington. The public, in their anger, are going to reject the GOP. The public views Obamacare as a joke and those who refuse to use their power to fight Obamacare will be rejected,” the Town Criers report. This reporter witnessed Criers challenging the public by asking them, “Has anyone signed up for Obama care?” During the course of the afternoon, the public engaged in a humorous interaction. Only one person claimed that she signed up. After some conversation, however, it was clear that this person was a liberal and was clearly doing what Marxists do, that is to lie, the Criers reported. The message from the street is, Obamacare is a joke and the ‘damaged brand’ of the GOP is not because of Tea Party positions. The damage has been self-inflicted on the GOP by denying its base.
Bikers love the Town Criers
The 21st annual Biketoberfest is being held in Daytona Beach this weekend. Many of the bikers found their way to St. Augustine. As you can see in the photograph on the right, Tea Party strength runs deep among the bikers.
