Mysterious Tea Party

The lamestream media told you:

We don't understand the Tea Party, but we sure don't like it.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

The Tea Party movement, as I've witnessed it, is merely a direct response from Americans who are distressed at the way the nation is headed. These are deeply concerned newly activated citizens (they key point) who have self-appoint themselves as members, and assemble in meetings, rallies and online, and are massing in huge numbers. They do not include many people from the left, for reasons that were unclear at press time.

They are centrists (not right wingers) who firmly hold centrist American values (limited government, low taxes, delegated powers only, individual responsibility, free enterprise, free markets, property ownership, capitalism, moral values, charity, rule of law, etc.) but are called right wing by the left wing, which is simply inaccurate. Those core American beliefs these people hold defines them as centrists. Now a group seems to be out to discredit the Tea Party, by infiltrating the meetings and causing trouble. I can't tell how or where this comes from, but you should at least know the idea is floating around out there.

Now more than ever it's important to understand what the Founding Fathers believed in and wanted for America. I've made that easier with The Founders Package, 11 key books the Founders read and wrote. Just my posted summaries will give you the tip of the iceberg, so look. The set belongs in every American household, assembled here so you can own it in one easy step. At least look. Read the summaries to get the gist of each man's thinking.

Alan, I don't know if you remember or not, but we met at the TSRA convention in February of this year. I handed you my business card (WHAM Productions). Anyway, I recently finished reading a most excellent book called "The 5,000 Year Leap" by W. Cleon Skousen. It is about the philosophical underpinnings of the Founders, and about how they sourced the ideas they used in putting together our foundational documents and our system of government. I wondered if you had read it, and if so, what you thought of it.

Best regards,
