The Tea Party: A Movement That May Save America

Whenever we elect a politician to Washington, a three-way bond springs to life between the voter, the politician, and the nation.
The voters and politicians are real human beings, but the nation, like a corporation, must depend upon the good faith leadership of human beings to protect its interest.
Part of this three way bond is the obligation of the politicians to convince the voters that they are making the right decisions which will protect both the nation and the voters.
Politicians must have the ability to draw voters into a conversation in which the financial health and security of our country can be confirmed and all of political mistakes confessed.
When politicians abuse the office they hold, the three way bond is broken and the nation suffers. That is what has happened in Washington for far too long.
After many years of political abuse, our nation’s troubles have now come into full view. The habitual idlers, the politicians, who are determined to continue business as usual, are counting on gullible voters and special interest groups to maintain their hold on power.
In short, politicians are sitting about and enjoying the pleasures and wealth that comes with being a Washington insider. The politician’s behavior is indicative of the irony that voters have been tricked into participating in Washington corruption by allowing politicians to stay in office. When that happens, both the politicians and the tricked voters are a mockery of a political system which our founders created to insure the survival of our nation.
So, among the thousands of actors who play their parts in the lobbying and governing of this nation, you will find a selfish lot who just keep getting richer and more powerful at the expense of the voters and the nation .
As simple as that, the politicians have violated the voter-nation bond in a way that hurts both the voters and the nation.They have pulled us to their side, luring voters to join them in pointing out the people or groups who are to blame for the first ever credit downgrade of this nation, when in fact the politicians are the ones to blame.
The breach of the voter-politician-nation bond may be one of the greatest frauds ever committed against America. Union bosses and wealthy lobbyist have access to the politicians and the riches of our nation’s treasury, while voters are pushed to the side—mere observers of the process.Continued on the next page
