Americans discontented, Divided America, Tea Party and Fiscal Cliff, Truckers in Washington, Veterans upset, Why are Americans' upset, Why are Republicans divided
America was founded by those who sought freedom and refused to set idly by while that freedom was snuffed out. Today the grumblings of another American revolt are shuddering through Middle America for a very similar reasons.
President Barack Obama thought to fashion himself after the American president Abraham Lincoln. A somewhat apropos choice as his model, as he is the most divisive president since Lincoln; dividing Americans by race, sex, age and in a myriad of other ways. Like Lincoln, Obama is also inspiring a revolt that is pitting American against American. That is of course where the similarities end. Where Lincoln wished to expand freedom and opportunity, President Obama is leading the charge to forever quench the flames of both.
The first tinges of a revolt started when Tea Party protest sprung up during the ram rod passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, ObamaCare for short. These protest that were sparked by the bailouts, increasing debt and a tone deaf congress. Like the Tea Party of old, this one is proving it was just an omen of things to come.
As congress lies paralyzed, many Americans are steadily deciding to suffer in silence no more. On the eleventh of October a group of truckers are going to Washington to protest the usurping of the constitution and plan on shutting down the city. On October 13th veterans are planning a million man march on DC to help drive the point home. Both are being presented as right wing protests by an out of touch left wing media, but the truth is they are closer to main stream Americans than the media wants to admit.
These rallies are mere reflections of what has been happening across the country. The current debate within the ranks of the Republican Party is a good example. The old Country Club Republicans are still clueless to what is happening to their own party. As they debate and battle those who seek a return to sanity, they are finding their numbers dwindling. Victims of voting hoard who are tired of having to accept a choice between two parties whose only difference is how quickly they intend to drive the country off a cliff. These are voters who also can’t be bought and sold for the cost of entitlement trinkets or Wall Street gold.
The Democratic Party and its liberal base are just as out of touch as the Republicans being driven from office. Blue collar workers, once a stronghold of Democrats, have abandoned the party in droves. The party of the working man is now the merely the party of entitlements and special interest. Controlled by left wing extremists and elitist demagogues, the modern Democratic Party has become little more than a bad parody of its former self.
While the seeds of discontent are growing, the revulsion of the masses has yet to translate to full revolt. The hold of the status quo, like the grip of the main stream media, is not going quietly into the night. Neither can one rely on those whose loyalty to their party is too unwavering for them to be reasonable. Like a rabid fan cheering for his favorite sports team, everyone else is wrong and their party always right. Still the signals are clear and the growing discontent very real.
The truth is, within the present politics of division lies the seeds of its own destruction. Out of the chaos a unified front is starting to rally against a shattering opposition. New Sons of Liberty are forming the spears edge of movement to take back the country and put it again on solid ground. Whether this new movement succeeds or not, one thing is clear, when the dust settles nothing will remain the same.

Delusional……when you have consistently fed bold-faced lies to form a threat to the survival of our country, when reality is nowhere to be found, there is nothing of truth driving this movement you wish to uphold. It is a very shrewd manipulation by moneyed interests who do wish to undo the very fabric of our common good so that they can make more money and let everyone else pull themselves up by the bootstraps. That is what is driving this “movement”, it is fear, fear, fear, based on nothing of substance and truth.
And what is it besides tyranny when a small group of individuals can disrupt the entire functioning of a government because they do not accept a LAW that was passed through the democratic process?
Get a life.

Point by point if you please, !. Moneyed Interest? I am sorry but Wall Street is not funding these people nor is left wing tycoons like Soros (who is behind much of the left). In fact most of the “moneyed interest” like the present course. They are making money hand over fist while everyone else languishes or can’t even get on the ladder. Poverty is up and the middle class done. 2. Bootstraps? I am not sure what you are referring too but I grew up in poverty and yes I did pull myself up by my bootstraps like you so aptly put it. It is not having to pull oneself up that is the problem but having the opportunity to do so. The vast majority of the wealth in the United States has always been self-made. The problem comes when opportunity is lost in exchange for favors from a political elite. The real tyranny is from a government out of control and elitist political class that sees itself as above the law as Duke or Lord of days gone by.
If you wish to talk about the law please do not do so with a straight face. The law I am sure you are referring to is ObamaCare. One that has already been violated by the President himself in granting of waivers he has no authority to do and a congress who has decided it does not have to follow it either. The fact is, the democratic process is what is being hijacked here. Hijacked by those who do not wish to negotiate or even make things subject to the normal processes of government. Every congress changes countless laws, EVERYONE!!! ObamaCare is not a privileged piece of legislation, it is a deeply flawed law that needs to be either replaced or greatly modified. Not just the opinion of the GOP but also its authors and those having to live with it.
Whey is it being a traitor, anarchist or the multitude of senseless insults to insist a law that has resulted in 96% of all new jobs being part-time, cost millions their health coverage, millions their jobs and even has a majority of doctors thinking of leaving medicine.
Who is being unreasonable here? The centerpiece of the last CR was just getting rid of the tax on medical devices that even Harry Reid opposes. Why not send it to committee? I realize this is a long winded response but your comment is nonsense and shows no knowledge of what is happening.
