What if the Tea Partiers are hypocrites?

'So, let nobody think that the Tea Party will lead US politics into new territory. Its hypocrisy will become apparent over the next two years, and its supposed radicalism will disappear in an ooze of compromises and fudges. That will help lay the ground for an Obama victory in the next presidential election in 2012.'

Really Swami, you think so? And you base this on? Oh yes, Shikha Dalmia's expose' on Tea Party hypocrisy. So you think America will soon see through the fact that the Tea Partiers want less government, less taxes and a lesser probability of their country's bankruptcy. And then America will soon want back for the next term a bankrupting socialist like Barack Obama so he can continue with his disastrous policies. Like the ones we had not too long ago here in India.

And you and Shikha think all this will happen because the Tea partiers have been hypocrites? Well I got a question for you. Who in their sane senses wants bigger government, greater taxes and a possibility of bankruptcy? Oh yeah, I forgot, the socialists! Like Barack.

Maybe you're right. Maybe the Americans need Barack and his policies to bankrupt their country for them to realise what America was originally built on by its founding fathers. Just so you and Shikha know, let me quote what the founding fathers of America noted,

Thomas Jefferson -

'If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people, under the pretense of taking care of them, they must become happy.' (Bergh, Writings of Thomas Jefferson, 10:342.)

'...we shall all consider ourselves unauthorised to saddle posterity with our debts, and morally bound to pay them ourselves; and consequently within what may be deemed the period of a generation, or the life (expectancy) of the majority.' (Ibid., 13:358)

Samuel Adams -

' The Utopian schemes of leveling (redistribution of the wealth) and a community of goods (central ownership of he means of production and distribution), are as visionary and impractical as those which vest all property in the Crown. (These ideas) are arbitrary, despotic, and, in our government, unconstitutional.' (William V. Wells, The Life and Public Service of Samuel Adams, 3 vols. [Boston: Little, Brown and Company, 1865], 1:154.)
