 Hello. With the elections now over, how do you feel? As aTea Party movement why are they the blame for some of these articles? Do you ever feel as if standing up for your U.S. Constitutional rights has allowed the liberals and the blame gamemainstream media to paint a red target on your back as a Tea Party supporter? Well, itappears that since the election the reengineering of the election results are giving GOP
moderates as well as alphabet soup network pundits’ greater incentive to bury the Tea
Party movement in another shallow grave.One of those pundits is former President Reagan Speechwriter,Peggy Noonanwhostated on CBS Face the Nation, Sunday November 11th that ,
“The tea party style of rage is not one that wins over converts and makes people lean towards them and say, ‘I want to listen to you.’ I think a friendly persuasion has to begin now from the Republi-can Party to people of the United States.”
 Exactly what type of converts is Noonan referring to? Is she asking that Tea Party sup- porters moderate their positions so that U.S. Constitutional principles become warmedover mush? Does Noonan and other moderates want Tea Party supporters to sacrificedeeply held foundational values on the Obama alter of socialist expediency? This isabsolutely and categorically not going to happen.The Sunday network talk shows are beside themselves with more than usual self servingglee to bury this genuine grass roots movement of millions of Americans as quickly asthey can. The problem is clear, The Tea Party has not retreated since the 2009 continu-ous assault from mainstream media vicious mistruths. The goal was to label the patriotcitizens as extreme, rabid racists who were only interested in destroying the failed taxand spend deficit policies that cooperative republican moderates and liberal democratshave forged for several decades.Well, guess what, one of the most important color blind leaders to come out of the 20thcentury probably described the Tea Party movement best. Rev. Martin Luther Kingtaught the nation to stand up against unjust systems. Rev. King stressed:
“Change does
not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And sowe must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can't ride you unless
 your back is bent. “
 The Tea Party movement did not bend its back or kneel to the constant and sometimeswithering assaults from self serving civil rights leaders like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jack-son, but it stunned the nation 2010, with the results of a survey from one of its own: the New York Times.There are hundreds of articles concerning the Tea Party movement out there. I try my best to keep most of the stuff out of this newspaper. But we are in for a tough 4 yearswith the way things appear. Drastic changes would mean it would have to come fromthe top, all the way through the Senate. The people of America voted and shockinglynot everyone was dissatisfied with the way things are.
