In the early days of the USA, One of the worst insults the Founding Fathers could give someone was to refer to them as a PARTY MAN. To be a PARTY MAN meant you put the welfare of your political party above the interests of the country.

Let’s examine the possibility and or fact that the TEA Party movement is causing some disturbances and concern within the ranks of the career politicians/PARTY people.  One of the possible methods to address this issue would be to recognize them, welcome them and infiltrate their ranks.  Something like “If you can’t beat them, join them”

The career PARTY people are now addressing this very issue by attempting to create a TEA Party Caucus in Congress.  So what are the possibilities as a result of this action?  It will certainly attract a few more voters to the ”good PARTY people”.  It will temporarily put the TEA Party at ease to think they are being welcomed and recognized and encouraged to join the ranks of the career PARTY loyalist in Power.

It may also help soften the most recent media blow that the TEA Party is ”racist”.  Even if it is not true, it will no doubt create some additional animosity and possible disruption within the TEA Party ranks and require the TEA Party movement to continually take the time to prove themselves otherwise and thereby taking the pressure off some other corrupt PARTY agendas.

It is very easy for the average American to under estimate the shrewdness of a career politician if they feel there is a possibility that the people may somehow expose and/or disrupt that very career.

There certainly are ample samples of what has not been working…34 states are forecasting a budget deficit in 2011, we have 10% unemployment that appears to be hanging on for a while longer, we have the largest federal deficit in the history of this country that will be dumped on future generations!

Based on what We the People have witnessed we certainly should understand what has not worked.,. it is not feasible to spend ourselves out of debt. With the legacy of the corrupt and dishonest PARTY people in mind, the possibility remains that they are not eager to correct their evil ways..  Based in part on the stats mentioned above and countless others, the possibility remains that even more people could end up in the same cesspool with the PARTY people and wondering how they allowed themselves to be betrayed… yet again??

Time to get serious about invoking some things like Nullification, the “rightful remedy”  for an out of control government!!
