The Tea Party has been characterized as being made up of far right, racist, Christian zealots who have a problem with a “black president” and “brown Mexicans.” Character assassination is the order of the day, but is it justified? Why is Barack Hussein Obama and his government so intent on spewing endless vitriol toward good intentioned citizens who desire nothing more than to enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? It is time to uncover and expose the underlying reason for Obama’s blatant attempt to crucify and excoriate an entire segment of the American population, the Tea Party.
Many Americans have learned that history repeats itself and the biased, partisan rantings of a government bully is usually the first calculated step toward forceful dominance. Obama’s bullies are clever masters of fear who know how to manipulate and utilize social aggression tactics like intimidation, to impose power over others.The Axelrod/Jarrett persecuting team are both masters of deception and perception, and their carefully scripted accusations that Tea Party patriots are religious radicals who are unsympathetic to the plight of women, minorities, the helpless and disadvantaged is not true, but in an uninformed society that no longer reads and rely’s on sound bites for their news, skewed facts coming from a deceitful but convincing president can be perceived as gospel.To further complicate one’s impression of the Tea Party, it’s own party, the GOP, has fallen victim to the same relentless, overbearing bullying and many of it’s cowardly Republican members have forgotten who they actually work for and represent.
The word character stems from the Greek word “Kharaketer” which means “engraved mark” that in ancient times was the word for a stamp or marking impressed into wax or clay. In the 17th century it then became associated with the sum qualities that define a person, or a “symbol or imprint on the soul.” Character was described as “your moral self” and referred to as a moral structure which was built through virtuous behavior.
At the beginning of the 21st century, character and moral integrity began to be replaced with personality, charm and charisma. Society shifted from being producers to consumers and to covet material possessions, while the righteousness associated with personal achievement and hard work continued to wane. “Perception” became the new buzz word and “integrity” old-fashioned. Citizenship, duty, work, charity, outdoor life, conquest, healthy competition, manners, good parenting, spirituality and manhood defined a person. Now, character is defined by words like, charisma, fascinating, interesting, attractive, magnetic, creative and dominant, all flashy words appropriate for a tinsel world that honors false idols.
Character is shaped and influenced by where we are born, where we grow up, how we are raised, from the example of parents, through our religious and academic education and the acquaintances we meet along the way. One of the greatest influences on our character is with whom we surround ourselves. If we take a cursory look at Barack Hussein Obama, we still do not know where he was born, his parents and guardians were communists, his early formative years were spent practicing Islam, he was educated in Hawaii where he was a notorious member of the Chum Gang who spent their leisure hours smoking pot, he went to Columbia and then on to elitist Harvard, spent several years listening to a Reverend who preached “God damn America”, and while residing in Chicago, hung around with Bill Ayers an ex-Underground terrorist and other extreme Chicago radicals. Now, as president of the United States, he has continued to surround himself with shady thugs from Chicago, Muslims who despise America and it’s infidels, Neo-Leninists like Cass Sunstein, and every other Soros funded, deadbeat Marxist activist whose underlying cause is to breakdown America. An entire society can be collapsed by an imperious leader who has no real self-identity or self-esteem and surrounds himself with other people of little character and integrity! Our daily actions as a nation become our habits and our habits reflect our character. We are now being led by a propped up, flunky ruler without character who is intent on purging the very document that was designed as a hedge against tyrants like him, the United States Constitution, the supreme law of the land, which delegates to the federal government certain limited powers and declares that the states are the boss of the federal government!
James Madison wisely wrote; “Is there virtue among us? If there be not, we are in a wretched situation. No theoretical checks – no form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any form of virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea.” The founders knew that without people of character there would be no trust and justice, no union or stability. Tea Party patriots take the word character very seriously, for character to them is the reflection of their moral soul and faithful allegiance to God, their one true leader and master. A sinful despot like Obama will never be able to suppress or shackle Tea Party patriots, for no one can separate them from their love of Christ.
America’s future success will continue to be defined by the character of it’s people. Thomas Jefferson wisely stated, “A nation, as a society, forms a moral person, and every member of it is personally responsible for his society.” Failure of America’s citizens to consider the long term ramifications of an immoral society will have disastrous consequences. The Tea Party will continue to fight and become the surrogate leader of America, a responsibility that bears great weight, fortitude and tribulation.The far left will continue their heckling and character assassination because, as stated in Romans 3:13-18, “their throats are open graves; their tongues practice deceit. The poison of vipers is on their lips. Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness. Their feet are swift to shed blood; ruin and misery mark their ways, and the way of peace they do not know. There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
The Tea Party will let evil words fall upon deaf ears and continue to fight with character, for it is a small price to pay for freedom. May God bless America and may America have the courage and character to bless God!
