So, what to do? Along with other events in our American history, was very instrumental in leading our country down the road to declare it’s independence over British rule, and eventually the revolutionary war. The Tea Party was the culmination of a resistance movement throughout British America, against the Tea Act, which was passed by the British government in 1773. Although it is not about tea anymore, but the modern day “Tea Party Movement” certainly has very striking similarities. It is a group of American citizens, from all over this country, coming together to stand for the constitution of the United States. Not the constitution of some small judges or a few government leaders, who have decided that they don’t want a government for the people and by the people; they desire a government for them and by them. They want to dictate to you and me, what you do, when and where you will do it, and by what means you will do it.
Are we on the road to socialism? Basically, socialism is a political movement that has as it’s goal, to create a socio-economic system in which property and the distribution of wealth are subject to control by the government, (or authoritative powers in control), for the purposes of increasing social and economic freedom, equality and cooperation. In a socialistic government, all your choices are slowly taken away. The government will tell you who to hire, what’s right and what’s wrong, and how much money you can earn and where you will go to school. It will initiate policies to take money from those who earn it and give it to those who don’t, and a myriad of other policies that are directed at controlling and balancing the wealth and the social structure of the nation. Government mandated health-care was a first step in that direction. Despite the fact that over 60% of the American public opposed the government health-care bill, it was given to us. That doesn’t sound like a government by the people.
The world looks at us Americans as fat, greedy, pigs. They perceive the things we have, and we want more. The big houses, new cars, and all the latest techno gadgets, just never fill our appetite that continues to yell for more and more.
