Is that a fact? If he's so bright, then why hasn't President Einstein figured out that Americans do not want the government to socialize their healthcare? Instead, he is going to force HIS version of government control over us any way he can – with or without Republican support. He does so at the expense of American national security. He's doing NOTHING to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons because ObamaCare is his number one priority.
The GOP has been criticized as the Party of "No." The Democrats should be referred to as the party of "Hell NO." They will strive to pass healthcare whether you like it or not! Get over it! They will in November!
Another Progressive elitist, Bill Maher is on the record for saying this about Americans: "What the Democrats never understand is that Americans don't really care what position you take, just stick with one. Just be strong. They're not bright enough to really understand the issues."
Maher's wrong! We get it alright. We see the whole picture. There are no illusions. Progressive Elites are in power and they are trying to fundamentally change America into their vision of Utopia on earth. They don't care what YOU think. You're not smart enough to realize they just want more and more power over you.

Here the declaration in it's entirety:
I. As the course of human events winds its way through History, it has found some paths lead to Tyranny and some to Liberty. In seeking a path to Liberty, a great and powerful movement is now rising from every corner of our land. Created by the Will of the American People, it rejects unconstitutional domination by the Government that is supposed to be its servant. This movement has arisen, in large part, because our elected officials have failed us.
For much of its history the United States has been a land of prosperity and liberty, sound policies such as fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government and a belief in the free market have safeguarded this condition. In recent years however, Congress, the President, the Federal Reserve Board and the Courts have replaced those practices with profligate government spending and expansion of the government power beyond what is constitutionally permissible.
This course, if not reversed, can only lead to economic collapse and tyranny.
Therefore, Individuals acting through the Tea Party Movement, seek to restore the policies, which are proven to safeguard liberty and prosperity for all. We will organize, demonstrate and vote until this restoration has been achieved. We will stay focused on this goal and remain INDEPENDENT from any persons or political parties who seek to distract us from this end.
Many seek to define this Movement, to use it, to lead it, to co-opt it, to channel it, to control it, to defeat it.
WE WILL NOT LET THIS HAPPEN
The Tea Party Movement is in agreement with our Founders that the government that governs least governs best. We believe that Capitalism – NOT GOVERNMENT – is essential to the creation of wealth and a vastly reduced government provides the foundation for a thriving Capitalist system.
The Tea Party Movement of America embraces and serves people of all races, creeds, religions, and political affiliations, and we declare ourselves to be independent of all those forces that seek to manipulate our actions or control our destiny.
II. We Declare ourselves INDEPENDENT of the Democrat Party and its power drunk junta in Washington DC, which is currently seeking to impose a Socialist agenda on our Republic.
We reject arrogant Left-wing politicians who furtively hide from public scrutiny, as they cut corrupt deals loaded with earmarks and pork in order to produce 2000 page pieces of legislation so purposely incomprehensible, they do not even bother to read them before foisting them upon us.
We reject the endless creation of myriad federal government agencies that drown free enterprise and local control in the swarms of education, energy, ecology, and commerce bureaucrats who style themselves “czars” sent to harass us. We reject the creation of federal government regulations and agencies which demand the States pay for unfunded Federal mandates.
We reject a Democrat Party which refuses to give credence to our demands for just redress of grievances and which insults and seeks to demonize our legal right to peacefully protest the unjust laws it inflicts upon us.
We reject a profligate Government that is spending TRILLIONS of dollars on worthless socialist schemes designed to bankrupt us and put the American people in a position of dependence on the State, as peasants begging for their very sustenance from self-styled “educated classes” and so-called “experts”.
We reject a foreign policy which bows and scrapes and apologizes before the world for America.
We reject an Attorney General of the United States who offers succor and rights to vicious terrorist murderers and seeks to protect them with a mock civilian trial when such enemy combatants, captured on the field of battle, should be tried in secure military courts.
We reject the claims of an un-elected Federal Judiciary to violate the separation of powers by demanding its decisions be enforced by the other coequal branches of government, regardless of how unconstitutional the other branches of government may think those decisions are.
We reject all acts that ignore or diminish the 2nd and 10th Amendments to the US Constitution and we seek to have all powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution to be reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
III. We Declare ourselves INDEPENDENT of the Republican Party, which has in the past manipulated its Conservative Base to win election after election and which then betrays everything that Base fought for and believed.
We reject the idea that the electoral goals of the Republican Party are identical to the goals of the Tea Party Movement or that this Movement is an adjunct to the Republican Party.
We reject the Republican Party professionals who now seek to use the Tea Party Movement for their corrupt and narrow political purposes.
We acknowledge that standing on our principles does not mean throwing out our common sense; we will NOT abandon our principles in the name of a nonexistent bipartisanship or a misguided devotion to an illusion of “pragmatism”, which disguises a desire to betray us in its name.
We reject the scare tactics of the Republican Party, which seeks to herd us into voting for candidates who supposedly represent the “lesser of two evils” in the name of fealty to the principle of small government and then having to suffer such candidates as they betray that principle. We are not well served by parasites whose livelihoods depend on the very State whose power to reward or sanction we elected them to limit and proscribe.
We insist that the Tea Party Movement does NOT consider the election of Republicans in and of itself to be necessarily beneficial to our goals.
We demand the Republican Party understand that we reject its attempts to co-opt us.
WE WILL WORK AGAINST THEM when they oppose our views by trying to force Republicans In Name Only (RINO) on us. When Republicans are in accord with their Conservative Base as well as the Independent voters who align with it, IT WINS; when they are NOT in accord with the Conservative Base and the Independent voters who align with it, IT LOSES.
We reject RINO money; we reject RINO “advice”; we reject RINO “professional experience”; we reject RINO “progressivism”; we reject RINO support of Big Government; we reject RINO back room deal making; we reject RINO pork spending; we reject false RINO professions of Conservative views and we reject the RINO’s statist subversion of the principles of small government for which the Republican Party is supposed to stand.
Republican Party attempts to ignore the will of the Base, as it did in 1976, 1992, 1996, 2006 and 2008, resulted in disaster; when it embraces the will of the Base, as it did in 1980, 1984 and 1994, it wins historic victories.
We demand the Republican Party recognize that while the Tea Party Movement cannot guarantee their aid will help them win elections, it is very likely WE CAN MAKE THEM LOSE if they are disdainful of our goals.
IV. We Declare ourselves INDEPENDENT of the Media, which has proved itself to be anything BUT a fair and balanced enterprise and which focuses more on entertainment, fear mongering and shock value than investigation and unbiased fact.
We reject the fiction that an unbiased media still exists; there is friendly media and there is unfriendly ENE-media. The Tea Party Movement refuses to give false credence to the self-aggrandizing, self-deluding lie that ANY PART of the Fourth Estate is free of the self-serving agendas of those who own them.
V. We Declare ourselves INDEPENDENT of self-styled “leaders” who claim to speak for the Tea Party Movement. This movement is not a brand name to be used to sell product; nor is it a logo to be used to justify profiting off its name.
We reject those who seek to personally capitalize on our popularity and momentum by trying to associate with our cause.
We reject the idea that the Tea Party Movement is “led” by anyone other than the millions of average citizens who make it up. The Tea Party Movement understands that as a Free People, we need to SAVE OURSELVES, BY OURSELVES, FOR OURSELVES.
The Tea Party Movement is not “led.” The Tea Party Movement LEADS.
VI. We are united in our common belief in Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets. This threefold purpose is the source of our unity in the Tea Party Movement.
We reject the idea that the Tea Party Movement must all be unanimous in our specific policy views in order to win. We recognize that the current situation requires we come together in confederation to achieve the MANY MUTUAL GOALS we all seek to accomplish.
We recognize that the current situation requires that we concentrate on the many things we have in common rather than those few things about which we may disagree.
We are the Tea Party Movement of America and we believe in American Exceptionalism.
We believe that American Exceptionalism is found in its devotion to the cause of Liberty.
We believe that Liberty is based in rational self-interest, in freedom of thought, in free markets, free association, free speech, a free press and the ability granted us under the Constitution TO DIRECT OUR OWN AFFAIRS FREE OF THE DICTATES OF AN EVER EXPANDING FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WHICH IS AS VORACIOUS IN ITS DESIRE FOR POWER AS IT IS INCOMPETENT AND DANGEROUS IN ITS EXERCISE.
We believe that either fate or history has chosen this Country to be a beacon of freedom and prosperity to the whole world because of America’s belief in and vigorous defense of political and economic Liberty. The United States has been the instrument of Liberty against the many tyrannies that have threatened the people of this world.
The Tea Party Movement rejects the idea that America has to apologize to a far guiltier world that has been largely unappreciative of the sacrifices made on their behalf by the brave and noble members of our Armed Forces, whose sacrifice and patriotic service in our defense makes all else possible.
The Tea Party Movement rejects the imposition of “transformational change” performed on our Nation by smug elites who call themselves the “educated class”.
The Tea Party Movement understands that our Nation is NOT the same thing as our government and that America is much more than simply a militarily and economically powerful State.
The Tea Party Movement sees America as something exceptional, as something unique, as something that came into existence to fulfill the hope of all previous generations that longed for freedom.
It came into existence because it is more than simply a country with land and population and riches and armaments. America came into existence because LIBERTY is an eternal concept in the mind of both God AND Man.
The United States of America came into existence because Mankind needs freedom the same way it needs food and air and property and security and love.
And what is freedom other than the RIGHT to be free of the tyranny of Government and the elitist, self-styled aristocrats who seek to run it at our expense and to our detriment?
The Tea Party Movement will fight this danger to our Liberty as long as its members have breath in their bodies.
When America didn’t exist men and women were compelled to invent it, BECAUSE MANKIND CANNOT EXIST WITHOUT FREEDOM AND STILL BE FULLY HUMAN.
To this goal we mutually pledge to each other, as our Founding Fathers did over two centuries ago, our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
More than 60 tea party leaders in more than 20 states reportedly have signed on to the new document.

"…that every assertion made in his [Al Gore's] science fiction movie has been disproven."
Inhofe says further: "We have the minority report, that we put together which shows that ClimateGate fixing the science, ah, cooking the science, actually took place. We have it all documented and people are being investigated right now. The problem for us in America is you [Cavuto] and I [Senator Inhofe] have talked before on how destructive economically it would be if we were to have Cap & Trade… it would be the largest tax increase in the history of America. Something over $300 Billion dollars a year. Now, since they can't get that passed, the Senate won't pass that. They're trying to do it through the Clean Air Act through the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) through an endangerment finding. Here's the key though: The endangerment findings is based on this science that the IPCC [UN organization] and it's all been debunked! So we're destroying the economy of a nation based on a science that 's bad."
"…They cooked the science on which all this was predicated."
Inhofe has requested that the EPA Inspector General investigate Climategate. However, he suggested that the EPA will ignore his request!
Action To Take
Support Senator Inhofe's investigation. Let's see Al Gore testify under oath about the "Inconvenient Truth."

Socialist President Obama is a LIAR. He lies a lot. He doesn't deserve OUR respect because he hasn't earned it. He lost it! He threw it away with his Socialist policies his first year in office. Here is a blatant example regarding his affiliation with ACORN:
November 2007 – Socialist Senator Obama – "When I was a US Senator and I definitely welcomed ACORN's input. You didn't have to ask me about that. I'm gonna call you even if you didn't ask me."
"When I ran project Vote, voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack-dab in the middle of it. Once I was elected [in the US Senate] there wasn't a campaign that ACORN didn't work in down in Springfield that I wasn't right there with ya. Since I've been in the United States Senate, I've always been a partner with ACORN as well. I've been fighting with ACORN along side ACORN, on issues you care about, my entire career."
October 14, 2008 – Socialist Senator Obama: "My relationship with Acorn is pretty straight forward. Its probably 13 years ago, when I was still practicing law. I represented ACORN. And my partner in that representation was the US Justice Department."
September 20, 2009 Socialist President Obama in the White House when asked about ACORN's funding: "Frankly, it's not really something I followed closely. I didn't even know that ACORN was gettin' a whole lotta Federal money."
Oh really? We are supposed to believe you were not aware that your best buddies (in all your career) were getting Federal funding? Don't insult Americans like that! If you listen to this man, he speaks out of both sides of his mouth. The problem with lying, is that you should try and remember everything you have said so that your lies cannot be pointed out like this!
Now his friends at ACORN are trying to re-image their corrupt organization. They have changed their names in the following states, with more changes to follow:
- California: ACORN is now called Alliance for California Community (ACCE)
- New York: ACORN is now named New York Communities for Change
- Massachusetts: ACORN is now renamed New England United for Justice

The FairTax plan is a legislative proposal that replaces all federal income and payroll based taxes with a national retail sales tax. It taxes all of us ONLY on what we choose to spend on new goods or services, not on what we earn. It is administered by existing state sales tax authorities. (So there are no new bureaucracies to add). This is NOT the value added tax that Obama wants. Remember, Obama wants to keep Federal taxes and ADD the value added tax on top of it!
It includes a prebate (like a rebate) to ensure no American pays federal taxes on spending up to the poverty level. It also repeals of the 16th Amendment! The FairTax Act (HR 25, SB 296) is nonpartisan legislation.
What It Eliminates
- All federal personal and corporate income taxes
- Gift taxes
- Estate taxes
- Capital gains taxes
- Social Security, Medicare, and self-employment taxes
The FairTax Advantages
- Enables workers to keep their entire paychecks
- Abolishes the IRS and the 70,000 pages of tax codes
- Enables retirees to keep their entire pensions
- Refunds in advance the tax on purchases of basic necessities
- Allows American products to compete fairly
- Brings transparency and accountability to tax policy
- Ensures Social Security and Medicare funding
- Closes all loopholes and brings fairness to taxation
