For Indiana Senator Dick Lugar: How to fix America, Tea Party Specifics
Recently, U.S. Senator Dick Lugar told the Tea Party to "Get real" and accused Americans of lacking specific recommendations. As a born and raised Hoosier fighting radical anti-American politics in southern
, I have many, many recommendations. If Senator Lugar is out of ideas, I would be happy to provide a roadmap to the hearts of not only the Tea Party members, but to the vast majority of Americans. California
War and Terrorism:
The CIA should be expanded and used as a primary force against terrorists. Special Forces need to be used as force multipliers. This will give the
the ability to reduce military exposure and concentrate our military might toward other political aims. I believe this will net hundreds of billions in cost savings and reduced debt. The key to this strategy is transparent disclosure of anti-terror operational results. There is no need to hide results related to terrorist groups. United States
American oil should be unleashed upon the world in a measured amount.
has more carbon based resources than the rest of the world combined. It is time to make this public, and use it as leverage against our enemies. The Tea Party does not advocate Global Warming based regulations. Most Americans and scientists agree that "Global Warming" (in Al Gore terms) and "Climate Change" (in United Nations, International Panel on Climate Change terms) are part of an international agenda to cripple the United States. America
Freeze COLAs, cut the length of unemployment insurance, make public employee unions illegal, build more of the border fence to reduce unemployment, propose a test to allow specific illegal immigrants access to citizenship based upon their skills and a pro-American outlook, and tie the corporate tax rate to the average of the G20 countries. These changes, when coupled with the recommendations for "War and Terrorism" above will give the country the confidence to begin a discussion about changing social security and balancing the budget.
The largest and most shocking consideration I will deliver is about the United Nations. It is time to realize that it is a corrupt organization with goals that are counter to individual freedom. Corrupt officials, communists, faked science pushed by political "inter-governmental" panels, and the veto powers held by our enemies are just a few of the reasons that membership in this organization needs to be reconsidered.
These are all tough actions that require a popular and charismatic leader. Currently, there are no leaders capable of executing these actions outright. So, it is obvious why people like Senator Lugar attack the Tea Party. There has been a concerted effort by the enemies of freedom to divide and conquer America for decades. It is time to realize that most Americans are either Tea Party members or agree with the Tea Party. Divisive rhetoric used to weaken this country is so misguided that it leads me to consider the source as corrupt.
The Tea Party can join conservatives, moderates and freedom loving liberals into a movement that will create a leader who will restore America. This is not about politics, it is about Americanism. Americans believe that each person has a soul and that soul has value. People are not numbers to us and we are uniting people in many countries to our cause. For each moment, a leader appears.
How will we know who the correct leader is?
- Reminds us that American exceptionalism is based on American individual creativity.
- Embraces the American mission of individual freedom and equality of opportunity.
- Clearly defines success, and empowers and trusts Americans to figure out the best way to achieve it.
- Admits vulnerabilities alongside strengths, and has humble confidence, not elitist bravado.
A leader can persuade others to join a united and broad based cause with clear and honest values. Growing consensus creates a better chance to persuade political representatives to support our cause regardless of political bias. Through consensus, legislative initiatives can succeed, but only initiatives that have gained broad support should be proposed. A short term strategy will not work and is counter to the values of the American people. The method to gain momentum in the movement is a Federalist/Constitutional American renaissance. Every effort to teach Americans Constitutional individualist equality of opportunity and to oppose collectivist equality of outcome must be taken.
