Bachmann Creates Tea Party Caucus, GOP Reluctant To Join

July 23, 2010 by  

Bachmann Creates Tea Party Caucus, GOP Reluctant To JoinRepresentative Michelle Bachmann (R-Minn.) said on Monday that the House Administration Committee had approved her request to create an official Tea Party caucus.

Although the congressional membership organization is not eligible to receive any Federal funding, Bachmann plans to use the caucus to push the ideologies of "fiscal responsibility, adherence to the Constitution and limited government."

"This caucus will espouse the timeless principles of our founding, principles that all members of Congress have sworn to uphold," she said. "The American people are doing their part and making their voices heard and this caucus will prove that there are some here in Washington willing to listen."

However, as of Tuesday, only Representative Mike Pence (R-Ind.) had expressed his desire to join the caucus, leading many political pundits to wonder whether the NAACP’s recent claims of racism have marred the conservative organization’s reputation in Washington.

Meanwhile, Representative Walt Minnick—an Idaho Democrat known for his fiscally conservative views—rejected the Tea Party’s endorsement earlier this week after originally accepting it in April, the Huffington Post reports.

Minnick, whose spokesman said he was reluctant to accept the endorsement from the beginning, rebuked the Tea Party after reading a racist blog authored by one of the organization’s members, Mark Williams.

    Lok at it this way, folks. The RNC has been committing political incest for at least 150 years. Incest is bad enough, but political incest makes it all but impossible for citizens to tell who their friends are and who their enemies are.
    If the RNC continues on its way to committing political suicide, then sobeit. If they can’t or won’t see the light, then they can close up shop and join the ranks of the enemy.
    RNC, from me to you, SCREW YOU and every one of your perverted, anti-American, simian bunkmates.

    • dianabug

      Amen – I don’t think the members of GOP don’t want to join teaparty caucas because they think it’s racist – I think they don’t agree with any of the fundamentals that the caucas stands for – and I think we are in far worse trouble as a nation than we thought we were.

      • Harold Olsen

        Do you mean becuse its extremely difficult to tell the difference between Democrats and Republicans? They are just two sides of the same coin and are interchangeable. The two parties may as well just merge.

        • Dan Burke

          And if the Tea Party and true liberals (as in freedom as opposed progress) actually highjack the Republican party like Progressives did the Democrats (who used to be for small government, etc as I have heard it told), then I suspect we will really see the “republicans” we commonly call “rhinos” all move over to the Democrats because “the party left them” (to quote some recent Spectre?). And then we will rejoice!!!

          My personal prediction, rising of a third party or a takeover of the Republican party will push “republicans” to the Democrats. They don’t want to give up their power. Their resistance to the Tea Party and actual resistance to truly “grass roots” movement of the true mainstream population (I mean, they are willing to cry foul on the unfunded unemployment extensions but they still are dragging their feet about pork spending???)…. well it says volumes and it is time they be revealed for who they’ve really become.

            the democrats have always stood for small business?? not in my lifetime.
            they have always stood for labor unions, government controlled education, health care and socialism in general.

          • chuck b

            dan burke

            the democrats never supported small business. they support labor unions, government controlled education, healthcare and civil unions for all government employees. this is why our schools are failing and the heathcare is a mess.

          • chuck b

            sorry for the repeat, thought the first one got lost.

        • Richard Pawley

          Sadly, Harold, this seems to be true. Our only hope to survive as a country is to restore all that we have lost. This nation was founded on the time honored (and proven) principles of Judeo-Christianity. There has never been a state church in this nation, but those who would destroy the nation to create a one world socialist order run by the banks and the unions, have extended this to mean we should separate ourselves from God and set up our own kingdom. This has only been done once successfully (if you can call that success) and that is when Lucifer led one third of the angels in a rebellion against God and established what we call Hell. Saul Alinskey, a follower of Karl Marx and one of President Obama’s heroes (and one of the heroes of the 70 Congressmen who are members of the Democratic Socialists of America) thought this was so wonderful he mentions Lucifer (most of the world knows him by his newer name, SATAN) on the very first page of his book on how to train community organizers to take over the earth. The followers of Karl Marx have been trying to do this for more than 150 years to replicate Lucifer’s success here on earth. Lenin adopted his principles to establish an union of labor in Russia and millions died. Hitler tried it with a different slant and millions more died. Mao was perhaps the most successful and dozens of more millions died. Now, these 70 members of Congress who are members of the Democratic Socialists of America (and perhaps more Democrats who secretly support them) are in league with those on the international scene who want to create this hell on earth, excuse me UTOPIA they call it, and they are close to succeeding. The average person cannot imagine the temptations, the power, the money, the sex, more than most can imagine that are available in our District of Corruption to those who are in Congress. We need strong and moral men and women who care more for their country than their careers and their egos. It is amazing that we already have a few of such people in Congress but only a few. The question that remains to be seen is will millions more die as a result of policies now being passed by our non-representing representatives in Washington? The socialist head of Medicare-Medicaid has already said the we must ration health care with our eyes open (does this mean that he doesn’t believe in throwing darts at the names of those who will live and get treatment and those who won’t, or that he will make a thoughtful decision on who is worthy of getting treatment and who doesn’t? That’s what they do in the UK and he thinks the UK system is wonderful.) History unfolds slowly, but even the Bible talks of a world wide banking dictatorship (in Revelation) where not even a king will be able to buy or sell without the head banker’s mark or microcomputer IN his right hand. Far out? That remains to be seen but we have just handed the private, mostly European owned, FEDERAL RESERVE BANK, more power than they have ever had in history. In 1999 the Republicans initiated the Grammn-Leach-Bliley Act which the Democrats in Congress went along with and signed. The Lobbyists surely got their $300 million dollars worth and when Clinton signed it (the worst thing he ever did) that rescinded the Glass-Steagall Act which was passed after the last Great Depression and had kept the banks from causing another Great Depression for over 65 years. Once the FED and it’s banks were freed from what had kept them in check it only took them EIGHT years to start us on our way to what I said in my 2006 book will be “the Greater Depression” and it has barely begun. The goal of Congress is the destruction of the dollar and the economy (not all of them, of course!). They are trying to create inflation and eventually they will succeed. I know a professor who sold his gold and purchased several YEARS of non-perishable food for his family because he believes food will eventually go up by a higher percentage than gold. I believe that too but I have no way of knowing WHEN that will happen. Some believe by 2012. There is beginning to be a shortage of food world-wide but you will never hear about this on the five mostly government run or influenced TV networks, or what you can do about it as an individual. Over five dozen financial experts (none of whom work for government) all believe that gold will go over $2500 an ounce within a few years and quite a few that it will go much higher. Gold is a barometer of the economy. When it is not restricted by government as in was in Nazi Germany, or in FDR’s “New Deal” or in Brazil today, gold indicates how the economy is doing. When things are good and the economy is healthy and we are paying our debts, gold just sits there. When Congress is spending every dime they can spend on anything they can spend it on and 25 million are unemployed and the government is just printing money to pay them to keep looking for jobs the government is killing right and left, then gold goes up every year and it has gone up about 15% a year on average for the last nine years. Just as it is not yet to late to buy non-perishable food so it is not to late to buy gold if you are rich enough to do so. Just remember you can’t eat it. Of course the socialist Democrats or Democratic Socialists have passed many new taxes hidden in the thousand page bills they pass without reading. “Pass it and you will find out what’s in it” said the most dangerous woman in Washington and there are to many new taxes to tell about here. Have you heard of the 1099 form that small businesses are going to have to file whenever they buy $600 worth of anything from anyone – it’s hidden in the health care bill! It’s just one of the many new anti-business practices that the tax loving socialists have already passed (and you wonder why over a quarter of a million Americans have left the country since Obama was elected). All is not hopeless though. We can begin the restoration of our nation by first being the best we can be (we can hardly expect better representatives than who they are representing). Believers can pray, and all of us can vote in November, not just for Republicans, but for those who actually believe in the United States, the equality of man, ‘equal justice’ under the law, and the Constitution. There is no room for racists in Congress or any color or party. If we can elect those who believe we should pay as you go, and not be bowled over by the propaganda emanating from either side, then we may have a chance of slowing this train wreck down. Nothing can stop it at this late date but if we get involved in what is happening and vote wisely in November things will be a lot better than they otherwise would be. The money that the Congress has spent so insanely is gone and the debt it will cost will cause food and fuel to eventually triple in price but it could be a whole lot worse if Congress is not stopped or replaced. I know those born this year will never know the USA that we have known but it could be a whole lot worse if we don’t stop this Marxist takeover and the destruction of our economy. Congress has an 11% approval rating and when you consider that 11% of the 535 members of Congress are just about the number of people who signed the Declaration of Independence, then there is hope. Let this November be our Declaration of Independence from Congress and replace the other 89%. YES WE CAN! It’s NOVEMBER OR NEVER!

          • Richard Pawley

            PS. I believe that Michelle Bachman is one of the 11% and worthy of a contribution, and if you live in her state, a vote in November. Nancy Pelosi has made it her goal to defeat Michelle so that proves how valuable Ms. Bachman must be. If we are blessed in November both Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid will be receive their walking papers where they can go home and retire in luxury at taxpayer expense until the chaos they have caused for the economy reaches them. All will be affected by what they have done to the country and the economy but they and their families will suffer too, so there is more than just poetic justice. May God bless America because no one else is going to do.

          • Rigel

            Liberal news has controlled who our canidates are for as long as I can remember. Notice how quick and with intensity some canidates are discredited or destroyed while others are sheltered. All for your own good? Sarah Palin is a good example. Why is liberalism or marxism so afraid of this woman? Tea Party has quitely had it’s influence on recent canidates. It has no need to create a caucus only to give marxism a target. It is most effecient as it has been quitely performing since it’s begining. No caucas needed. Have much agreement with Richard Pawley.
            Congress passed health care with the assumption “THEIR” plan would be unaffected. Isn’t it strange their system was totally covered by the tax payer for life? How many are covered by this life-long system? Recent report suggested 8 million are covered. And you thought only your congress and president were? Of course they are working to set aside their health care plan as before. Why should they share a plan with you. Why doesn’t the media tell you the truth? Hard to hold congress accountable when the media misrepresents the truth. During the Obama recovery we have lost over 8 million jobs. Things are going to get real ugly and nobody can stop it.
            Reports say health care can’t cover the preexisting conditions as previously reported unless you buy a plan costing $450.00 – %950.00 a month, sort of like cobra except higher. Columbia U. has said cap and trade bill will run the cost of gasoline to $7.00 per gallon. Electric bills in some cases will almost double. No recovery in sight according to some economist. The poor in America has lived for years like the middle class in Europe so we should adapt their style of government? Let’s see how you fare.
            Think this congress is wild? Wait until after election day in November.

            Richard, you were right about you calling the x-tra stregnth socialist idea of utopia as hell on earth. They are starting to require that our children read Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.” They are also erasing our history at a rate that is astronomical. My fellow Conservatives & Libertarians it is time that we turn back the clock. It is time that we DON’T worry about being politically correct. We MUST get rid of these career politicians that have lost their soul to Washington. Will you help me get rid of the PROGRESSIVES that have infultrated the 2 parties? Yes, Lindsey (Nancy) Grahmnesty & John McCain I am talking about you & others like you. It is time that we find & grow our next George Washington, Calvin (Silent Cal) Coolidge, Andrew J. Melon, Abe Lincoln, Ronald Reagon, Benjamin Franklin, & Warren G. Harding. We should be telling our children that they could be the next Ben. Franklin, those listed above & those great conservative minded leaders that I don’t have listed. It is time to grow or mold them from early on, before the socialists (Progressives) have a chance to get their claws in our young. As what studies show that the avg. student upon finishing high school is more Conservative, but the more of a college edu. they recieve (socially grounded of course) the more liberal or socialist they become. I am not saying that they shouldn’t get a college education. What I am saying is that your children should get their history the original documents. We need to not only to coin our currency back to congress, but we must also go back to the honored tradition of our founding fathers of having it backed by gold. We must put the 17th ammendment back in the hands of the state house, because the state house did a better job of electing our senators. The states know what is in the states best interest. We must also cut our spending by 50% if we want to keep our triple A rating. Do you think that FDR had a “New Deal or a Raw Deal”? Go out & vote this comming Nov., but also remember to study & do your homework about who is running for office in your state, because only then will you be more well informed about what they stand for. Remember to vote for the person that mirrors your principles & values.

        • alpha-lemming

          Makes perfect sense. Look at the recent Republican slate of Presidential candidates (Bush 41 forward). Nothing even close to a Constitutional conservative. I haven’t had anyone to vote FOR in a very long time. We’ve been forced into a “lesser of two evils” or “who will do the least amount of damage” vote for our elected leaders/representatives. Or phrased another way… defensive voting. That’s no way to propel the country forward.

      I’ve heard politicians from both parties say they DO NOT work for us. They say that they were elected to make their own decisions for us and, pretty much, that they know better than us what is best for us. We need to show these idiots who they work for by firing them come election time.

          • Richard Pawley

            Well, if we don’t replace Congress in November you will not believe what happens to this country within the coming decade. In my autobiography four years ago I warned about the then coming stock market crash and I called what we are now in the beginning of “The Greater Depression” but in truth it will be a lot worse than that. Perhaps you are in favor of WWIII (many Progressives or Socialists want the population of the earth reduced) and are working as fast as they can to destroy the US economy and the dollar. Oh, by the way, the sub-title to my latest book is “and the Great Famine that Followed” and this one, which will be world wide, won’t be caused just by bad weather.

    • Smilee

      BACHMANN SURE HAS SNOOKERED YOU!!! SHE’S A REAL FAKE!! GO TARYL CLARK, A REAL AMERICAN!!!! WHO WILL MAKE THIS COUNTRY PROUD

      • Richard Pawley

        Tarryl Clark seems like a decent person but she is a member of the DFL Party the same as Hubert Humphrey, Walter Mondale, and Eugene McCarthy. She says she is for small business and the unions but the Democratic Socialists (the 70 members of the house who are outright members of the Democratic Socialists of America) are doing all they can in Washington to destroy small business. Together with the union leadership they are trying to apply all the principles of Karl Marx to the United States of America. Minnesota might be ready to go fully Socialist or Communist but I don’t think the rest of the United States is ready to do that. I could be wrong, of course, but I would love to interview the many tens of thousands of born and raised Americans who are fleeing the country and ask them why they are doing so. Six out of seven that I have talked with have told me that it was the economy. Nancy Pelosi has apparently made it her goal to retire Michelle Bachmann and money is pouring in to defeat her but if the Democrats stay in control of Congress past November things are going to get a lot worse than the tripling of food and fuel that their irresponsible spending along with the irresponsible spending of ordinary Republicans has already set in motion. I like the USA. It’s better than any other country that I know of but we are fast spending ourselves to death. We owe more money than any nation has owed in all of history and now we are just printing money to pay the bills, and that never ends well. Money has to be real, it can’t just be coupons printed by a government or the banks. The current deficit (if it were interest free AND if we had any intention of ever paying it off – just since Obama has taken office – is such that it would take OVER 3,000 years to pay off it off at the rate of a million dollars a day. Instead we will just stiff those rich enough to buy bonds). At least Minnesota has another claim to fame, the first Muslim elected to Congress. Keith Ellison, a Progressive Democrat and according to my sources one of the 70 members of Congress who are members of the Democratic Socialists of America which is affiliated with the Socialists International in London. Guess I’m different from you. I like freedom but because of the spending of the past 20 years and especially because of the spending of the past 20 months – the current Democratic Administration is making Bush look like a piker – we are fast losing our freedom. When the dollar is toast, you will have less freedom than you have now. Don’t you realize that Marxism has been tried? It failed in Nazi Germany, and it failed in Soviet Russia, and it has impoverished the country of Cuba, and it is failing in Venezuela. I cannot understand the big attraction that being an economic slave has to so many. The free money is great, until those in power take the best for themselves and/or the whole system crashes. You don’t think Castro or Chavez or Stalin or Hitler went hungry do you? But many of the people in their countries have and are. “Socialism is great,” said Margaret Thatcher, “until you run out of other peoples money.” Common sense tells you that to save our country we must cut back on a thousand things until we can get out of debt but neither Democrats nor Republicans seem to be concerned because they have discovered they can just print money and since the socialists want to crash the system they are doing all they can to spend too. Many of them don’t believe in God but I say and I pray, “May God help us” because no one else is going to do so. The election in just over three months will be more important than the one in 2012. I don’t know if we will elect a Constitutionalist, a regular Republican, or a Communist in 2012 but if Congress doesn’t stop their insane spending of money you can line your coats with US dollars to keep warm in those cold Minnesota winters because they won’t have many other uses.

    if my rep doesen’t join i will vote for the tea party candidate next primary.sick of “republicans” like brown,snow,collins and especially lindsey graham.

    • Richard Pawley

      I grew up in South Carolina and Lindsey Graham is no more Republican than Obama is. Quite a few people in SC absolutely despise him but you know how it is. Each state hates Congress but not their Congressman. Perhaps like Obama when he was a senator, Graham might bring a lot of money to SC. I don’t know. I do know that they have one real genuine old fashioned Republican Senator, Jim DeMint, who believes that the government has gotten out of hand and is doing what it has no business doing. Soon, if the spending isn’t curtailed, this will all stop because the economy will crash along with the dollar. I believe that this is what the Democratic Socialists want but they will not be able to make their socialist utopia because in a few years people’s main concern will be food. Of course when the Socialists took over the Ukraine they starved 11 million people to death. The Progressive New York Times, ever in love with communism and socialism, denied it at the time and said it was all Republican propaganda or some such but that which is hidden always comes out and 11 million starved in just that one Republic of the old Union of the Soviet Socialist Republics. Let us pray that 11 million don’t die here when they destroy the dollar and the economy by their wantonly wasting of it at every chance they get.

      Some wiser men than I have said that by 2012-2013 because of what the Progressives have already done the country will be in total collapse. Learn to think like a pioneer. Learn about non-perishable food and how to grow a garden (if you live where it is practical). Life in big cities will be hell and it won’t be fun elsewhere. You will be on your own. The government which has promised the moon will not be able to deliver so they may go to war. Oh, I forgot we are already in a couple of them. Well, if the progressives eliminate the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” from the military thousands will resign and the draft will have to be re-instated within a couple of years. We all hope that none of this happens but prepare for it anyway and the least you will do is save a lot of money as the Progressives have already spent so many dollars that big inflation is coming as a result, as soon as the little deflation ends. Impossible to predict precisely when this will all happen but some will deeply regret they did not prepare and some will undoubtedly commit suicide when it happens, thinking that will solve things for them. It won’t but that’s to long to go into here.

Wejust happen to be in deep commie do-do atthis time because of their good ole boy club with McCain. I voted McCain ticket, but actually was voting for Sarah.they had better get in with , or fully support the tea party for obvious reasons. if they can’t get over tea party common sense all American reasoning, from all party affiliations they will be responsible for another split that will take us further down. I no longer support GOP as it stands Lyle

    • Harold Olsen

      I wouldn’t support any Republicans who suddenly decided they’d better join the Tea Party Caucus because they’d only be joining in the hope that it would get them re-elected. They’d only pretend to believe in the values that the Tea Party believes in and it would not be sincere. In other words, they’d turn into a bunch of John McCains.

        • Richard Pawley

          Confused! He sounds like he knows more than the Marxists in Washington or Minnesota. He sounds like a patriot who appreciates being an American and all that the United States has to offer. A born here millionaire (a former sharecropper) with a only a grade school education once pointed out to me that over 50% of all millionaries in this country came here in poverty from other countries and started a business and worked their way up. I don’t know if that is still true but since a million dollars is only a fraction of what it used to be worth I suspect it might still be true. I know someone who left a Muslim country and because he was a Christian was only allowed to take $200 with him. He had to leave his house and all he owned behind but he felt coming to American where he could be free was worth it. He moved here, worked hard, became a citizen, and eventually owned his own company and employed hundreds. I imagine some he didn’t hire because they had poor work records were complaining about foreigners coming over here and taking over. When the Progressives in Congress (Democrat and Republican) destroy the middle class and wipe out the rich we can all be poor together (except for them of course) in the socialist utopia they want so much. Your goal perhaps, but not that of most of the people here. As Patrick Henry said, “Give me freedom or give me death!” You may get what you want if more Americans don’t wake up by November but you will bitterly lament it when you see the poverty that socialism brings to most. It has been said that those who won’t learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them and only the insiders in the old socialist Russia and socialist Germany and socilist Cuba get the spoils, the rest get crumbs, not even enough to eat in many cases. Our poor here in the USA are richer than most of citizens in the rest of the world and some like yourself don’t seem to appreciate it. Well, you might, when you lose even what you have now. May God bless you, because the government sure isn’t going to do so.

    I’m not surprised that Republicans are not joining the Tea Party Caucus. The racism BS may be ONE of the reasons but I think the fact that the Tea Party is a conservative movement is the real reason. The idiot Republicans we have in office currently ARE NOT conservatives, though many claim to be and are against what the Tea Party is going after: fiscal responsibility, lower taxes, cutting wasteful spending, remembering that our elected officials work for us and, most of all, obeying and upholding the Constitution of the United States. It’s bad enough the Democrats are against all of that but the Republicans have joined them The Republican party has not been a conservative party for a number of years, which is why I’m now an independent and no longer a Republican. At best, the Republicans currently in Congress are left-leaning moderates. Throw the bums out!!

    • GregS

      There is no such thing as a “moderate.” That’s liberal terminology for a liberal in diguise (i.e. RINO or liberal Republican).

  • PC_Bob

    EVERY party has hate-mongers and racist’s. Scratch a liberal and see. But that doesn’t mean that everyone in that party is a racist. Some will just never change, and it isn’t all against the blacks, either. There is just a whole ton of racism against he whites, as well, for instance. Be that as it may. I think everyone wants to make America a better place to live, for all of us legal citizens/immigrants. We have an excellent blueprint to make that happen. It is the envy and admiration of all nations, and it’s called the US Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. All we have to do is follow their directions and we can be assured of a place in posterity.

    Unfortunately, there are many people today who would simply throw it out and play it by ear, with a new set of rules everyday, if necessary, to follow some sort of pseudo-European model. This is NOT Europe, folks. This is America, and we have the boldest, and so far, most successful form of government in the world. Ever. THIS is the destination for all the worlds people who long for freedom and self-determination. You just don’t see that many people trying to push their way into the unfree regimes of the world, like, for instance, Mexico or Venezuela. So why in the world would we even think about trying to become more like them?

    Mistakes have been made in the past, including the current administration, but that doesn’t warrant throwing the baby out with the bath water. Keep the best parts and build on that as we move on. A ‘NEW’ party may be just what we need to turn America around and get her back on the right path, for the current path is taking us down the road to becoming a historical footnote. A failed civilization.

  • Mike N.

    I considered changing to libertarian but most states if not all have rules that dienfrachise third party voters in the primaries. We need to have open primaries in all states. It would allow us to choose who we really want to see running in the general elections.

    DID IT EVER OCCUR TO YOU THAT OUT OF ALL THE CAUCUSES, HISPANIC,LATINOS, LATIN-AMERICAN BUSINESS BUREAU, ETC. THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN BUREAU, CONGRESSIONAL AFRICAN AMERICANS, NAACP, ETC. WHITE? HUH, I DON’T THINK SO. THANK GOD FOR MICHELLE BACHMANN, THE ONLY PC GROUP IN AMERICA WILL FINALLY HAVE A SAY. IF THEY ALLOW THE MELTING POT OF THE TEA PARTY TO HAVE A CAUCUS AS WELL.

  • Mike Lagree

    Who in this country is more racist than Obama, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, rev. Wright, Shiela Jackson Lee, the new black panthers, the old black panthers, the SEIU, etc.?? These people all have one thing in common, they all hate whitey and the country he built. They not only need to be run out of office, they need to be run out of the country.

          You’re right Smilee, this prez runs from race questions (rev Wright, NBPP, NAACP, et al.) like an olympic sprinter!

        Still can’t come to terms with the fact that the prez is only half-black, eh omar?

    Michelle Bachmann needs our support. She has made a rather large target of herself, and is under fire from the left. The national progressive machine is pouring millions of dollars into the MN race to defeat her. The negative attack ads have already begun. They use ad hominum and race card slurs, just like they cast at the tea party, because they can’t defeat her on the basis of the issues. Please contribute what you can to help her campaign, if you feel that what she’s doing will help save our country.

  • james

    how is it you guys seem suprised by the GOP’s reluctance to embrace ‘real’ american values? the party is run by RINOs………they supported michael steele as RNC head……..(he’s definitely not a conservative, nor is he lucid concerning the real issues….seems more like a ‘plant’ to help the liberals achieve their agenda)………and they’ve consistently flip flopped and not upheld the will of the people on issue after issue……..most recently epitomized by graham’s defection? I think these aren’t really ‘defections’ but rather a show of true colors…..I’m grateful for the tea party movement & pacs who put out voter guides that let the people know who the real conservatives are…….so let’s FIRE these guys!!!!!!!!! and support Michelle Bachmann and others like her!!!

  • chuck b

    michelle bachman is fighting a losing battle, the rinos in the congress must be having a heart attack. trying to encompass the congressional gop members into a tea party caucus is a waste of time and giving the commies on the left more fodder to throw at her. the rino will never back her and will cause a split. she should keep on speaking out and let it go at that. getting past the fraudulent voting in minnesota will be an accomplishment in itself. it will probanly be worse this time since they got away with it with al franken and another thing, even will all the fraudulent votes for franken, if that many people would vote for a person of his caliber then we are at a stage in this country where lunacy reigns

    • Richard Pawley

      It’s not the whole country. Minnesota is somewhat like California. Americans need to remember that Al Franken won his senate seat because of 178 felons in prison who voted for him and his was the final vote for the socialized medicine that was passed in March. If it’s not over turned and replaced with a real health care reform bill the big taxes will begin to kick in soon. In a free country the government could never force citizens to buy health insurance but a government in cahoots with the insurance companies could – just remember, not one single Republican voted to force Americans to buy health insurance. Republicans are far from perfect. A few are as bad as the Progressive Socialists but not even the RINO Republicans voted to destroy our health care by saddling us with a government ‘program’ and the forced buying of insurance. The cost of health care, already twice as high as the rest of the world, will get worse and the Marxist who Obama appointed to head medicare and medicaid has aleady revealed ‘rationing’ “with out eyes open” whatever that means, like his beloved England where they recently let a 23 year old die because although he had quit drinking and joined AA he couldn’t convince the bureaucrats of that and they decided that his liver transplant was to expensive. Imagine when the money is tight and you are 50 something and the disease you got because you ate typical American food is just to expensive at this time. Unless you are a member of Congress or high up in chain of command, to bad for you, unless you can go to India where there is still some freedom and American trained doctors who earn only a fifth of what ours do. Americans are going to rue the day they tried to get something for nothing and ended by getting very little, poorer, and more expensive health care, and less freedom. It really is a sad thing to see people lose their choices in life. By the way Minnesota is the state that gave us those nice gentlemen, but big time losers, Hubert Humphrey, Walter Mondale, and Eugene McCarthy, who were all members of the Democratic Farmers Labor Party which is apparently some sort of state wide socialist party, from what I can tell. I do not know all the future, but I do know you cannot just print money and spend it without eventually causing big inflation. This is why gold continues to go up every year since the Muslim attack on New York and Washington, but some very knowledgeable people believe that one day soon food will go up even more (percentage wise) than gold . My advice is make sure you always have a good few months of NON-PERISHABLE food on hand at all times. Learn about survival foods, freeze dried ground beef that will last 25 years and dozens of other foods from bananas to peaches from asparagus to corn that specially canned for emergency food supplies that will last for years if not decades. Even if buying and storing such food for an emergency doesn’t save your life it will at least save you money due to the terrible inflation that must be the inevitable result of the socialist spending in Washingon. Forewarned is Forearmed. Many will not be. There is time to learn what you need to know but not a lot, and inflation in food is only going to continue to increase much faster than the interest paid on stocks, bonds, or savings accounts. To much to tell, it’s why I wrote my last book.

    Both the left and the right I believe will not create the kind of country that I would best like to live in . Why should a unemployment or a welfare check be a lot bigger take home pay check than the minimum wage . Why couldn’t social security pennsions be good enough for government employees . By what right or discrimination law can the government offer bailout moneies to some companies and not to others . We need a country that manages their finaces so they can pay their bills . without stealing by depreciating our dollars . I dont think we can make income tax too progressive . America needs to slow down , relax a little cut the work week ,hire more trainees , give evreybody medicare and social secuity . If you want more in your old age save more now from your own money . Lets treat evreybody equal . support amendment 28 congress can pass no law that doesnt pretain to evreybody .

  • Angel

    Why doesn’t Bachmann stand up to the lobbyists – ON BOTH SIDES – that are screwing us over BIG TIME!

    • Richard Pawley

      What does this mean? It’s a huge generalization! Give us some facts. There are some 36,000 lobbyists in the District of Corruption and they have huge budgets. Back in 1999 they spent some 300 million dollars to overturn the 1930′s Glass-Steagall Act that kept the FED in line and the banks from causing another 1930′s type depression. Congress signed off on it and Clinton signed it and viola! Just eight years later we have the beginning of what will eventually be a greater crisis than the Great Depression ever was although it will take a while to get there just as it did the last time. No one in 1931 knew they were in the beginning of a great depression. In my 2006 autobiography I called what we were headed for “The Greater Depression” although that term was first used by someone much smarter than I. So far only 25 million are unemployed but Congress is passing bills to make that even more, weighing down business with incredible paperwork requirements and new taxes. Nothing can stop this now. Americans have been asleep to long but we can stop Congress. Some of these people love democracy as much as Senator Palatine in the Old Republic of STAR WARS fame. He loved it so much because he knew he could manipulate it to make it what he wanted. In the past we used to say, “Let George do it” so George Soros did it. Most of the socialist agencies and Marxist outlets in this country are funded by him. He even moved his billions out of the country to England. Now, he supposedly wants to establish a world socialistic empire. It’s just like Mexico complaining about Arizona’s law. It doesn’t fit in with future plans. The Democratic Socialists are in power now and they are working to bring it all down, destroy the old republic and make a new socialist wonderland, like China, Cuba, Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia. Well, we have one chance and one chance only to slow this down and that in just over three months. No matter what happens we must do all we can do to help any genuine Tea Party Conservative. There is so much funny business going on a hundred letters couldn’t cover it all. Be positive, but prepare for food shortages, and fuel shortages, and big inflation, and that is IF WE VOTE WISELY IN NOVEMBER. If we don’t it will be much, much worse. It’s why I wrote, “The Last Days of the Late Great United States”.

          Yes, he is probably some smart (aleck) high school kid of liberal hippie parents who couldn’t find a job for the summer and he has nothing else better to do than bitch and complain. He’s afraid that we are all going to vote for a Tea Party Conserative in November and he won’t get that cushy government job at the taxpayers expense but instead he might have go to work at a “real” job where he would really have to – dare I say it – really work!

  • Ed Sullivan

    Dear Honorable Michelle Bachmann,

    Thank for your service to our great Republic. You are one of the few in congress that is fighting to preserve and restore our great country.I served our country in the military and my son-inlaw is now serving in Afganastan. It breaks my heart to see what the administration and congress is doing to tear apart what we fought to preserve. Keep up the fight.

  • http://gmail i41

    Yes , Omar is just a sandcrab marxist idoit, who is waiting for his welfare and unemployment check to arrive. From his muslim moron Prez. and his democrat socialist smucks. We have plenty of wetbacks up in Wyo. herding sheep, but we don’t like peophile goat riding rangers wandering in our range land, trying to pervert the wildlife and confinement raised hogs. Omar and the communist democrats whine about their “black Kenyan marxist phony” Prez not being accepted. It must be that having attractive smart white real women knocking back the liberal racist democrats that drives their hate for conservative female leaders. Marxist democrats sure support and love then endorse the lezs, fags, blacks, latinos, rainbows, or any other abnomalonies in the society who are socialist marxist nutjobs. Normal hardworking citizens get put down and derided by all the democrats. The democrat eleits sure don’t pay their taxes and only pay their fines at the smallest amount if caught. Organisms that voter for marxist democrats, are nano minded, one celled organism who live off of productive society.
