Blast From The Past: What The Tea Party Is Supposed To Be About

It is disappointing to me that the Tea Party has gone so far astray from what it was intended to be.  It was always supposed to be about stopping the looting and starting the prosecuting.  Today, as so eloquently put by the film, Inside Job, not a single person responsible for this catastrophe has gone to jail.  To the contrary, the same people are still in charge of the same enormous financial institutions, and those same institutions continue to rob us blind by contributing large sums of money to the campaigns of those in our government who allow these institutions and their officers to remain un-prosecuted by writing laws that exempt them from the criminal penalties that would apply to the rest of us. 

There’s a word for this:  Kleptocracy


[klep-tok-ruh-see] noun, plural ‐cies.

a government or state in which those in power exploit national resources and steal; rule by a thief or thieves.
This is precisely what we were trying to warn everyone about back in 2008.  No one wanted to believe us.  No one took us seriously.


What do you think about it now?  How much more will you stand for America?
