No surprise here.
In official Washington, some consider the Tea Party movement a fringe element in society, but voters across the nation feel closer to the Tea Party movement than they do to Congress.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 52% of U.S. voters believe the average member of the Tea Party movement has a better understanding of the issues facing America today than the average member of Congress. Only 30% believe that those in Congress have a better understanding of the key issues facing the nation.
When it comes to those issues, 47% think that their own political views are closer to those of the average Tea Party member than to the views of the average member of Congress. On this point, 26% feel closer to Congress.
Finally, 46% of voters say that the average Tea Party member is more ethical than the average member of Congress. Twenty-seven percent (27%) say that the average member of Congress is more ethical.
It’s gotten so bad in this country, that Congress has picked up where the British left off in 1775. The obscenities and threats leveled at American patriots by Democrats and their far Left main stream media hacks, is surreal. We support and defend the Constitution. The ruling cabal of Dems have abused it at every opportunity.
The millions of Americans who stand up to speak out against ObamaCare and the onslaught of socialist policies, are called “racist”, “rednecks”, “uneducated”, “ignorant”, “ungovernable”, “terrorists”, and a variety of other slanderous names. The malevolent force coming from inside the beltway is unprecedented. The politicians, entrenched in hubris and power, have perverted our government into a dictatorial monstrosity. The collection of far left kooks and Islamic sympathizers who occupy the White House, the cabinet, and the Congress and Senate, are frightened out of their gourds over the strong protests of citizens who won’t tolerate the ruling authoritarian party. They have unleashed an anger not seen since the first American Revolution.
The goal of the Tea Party resonates with the average American in a way that politicians just don’t get.
Mark your calendars, Dems. Come 2 November 2010, your reign is finished. Expect the same to happen with your Obamessiah in 2012.
