Ironically Hispanic U.S. Senator Rafael Edward "Ted" Cruz (R-Tx) seems to have become the new darling of the Tea Party. And just as ironic is the fact that this darling made his way into America from north of the border rather than the usual route from the south. But that's neither here nor there as the Canadian born Ted Cruz is hellbent on destroying America.
Politically that is.
Now anyone who has read this blog from the beginning would know that I wasn't always as anti-Tea Party as I am now because it has always been my belief that the original grassroots political movement (which at one time was all-inclusive) had been hijacked by a faction of over-the-top extremists from within the Republican Party.
And that is the sad part of the saga as I can still remember the many Americans who went all in to establish some sort of opposition to the political Status Quo that has made American Government nothing more than a dysfunctional house of cards ready to implode.
Of course the Democrats wound up ignoring the grass roots phenomena that was springing up in all parts of the country because of its lack of a central committee or organization. Extremist Republicans, though, saw that as a golden opportunity as American discontent was running high. I suppose they should at least be given credit where credit is due as they masterfully infiltrated the grassroots political movement and established the necessary organizational structure needed to take over its leadership and change its original intent.
Unfortunately that is when the nuts came out of their shells. Especially early darlings like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann, who for all practical purposes, were both walking contradictions as well as being too politically inept to ever lead this country in earnest. Somehow, though, they still have enough people believing in their hypocrisy to keep them important to Tea Party faithful who continue to hang on to every word or repetitive phrase they use.
Oh well, I suppose every con artist has to be good at twisting the truth. And if there is one thing that these two women have a good grasp of it's twisting the truth with their affinity for using populist buzz words to stir up emotions.
When it comes to the smart money, though, the people who wanted to bring real change to the political process just walked away. They knew that what was once a good grassroots idea had been taken over by people with a much different agenda. An agenda that favored those with money rather than all the average Joe's and Josephine's who tired of the over-taxation and inequitable government policies that were (and still are) destroying the American Middle Class.
And believe me folks, the Tea Party of today is not even remotely concerned with the Middle Class of this nation. They are, however, all for the perpetuation of money going to money and finding whatever ways they can to keep it for themselves.
It just turns my stomach every time I hear a Tea Party Candidate tell people that they want to restore America to its former prosperity but routinely forget to tell voters why they would have no problem in bestowing favorable legislation to those in position to create good paying jobs in return for their big campaign contributions.
Only problem is that that favorable legislation only assures that those who can create jobs wind up having no impediments in moving them. As in to any shit-eating nation that is willing enough to prostitute their own people to work for a fraction of the wages that Americans would.
So much for American prosperity. What a bunch of hypocrites!
Then again it isn't just the Tea Party folks that are at fault since there are more than enough Democrats and regular Republicans who haven't behaved much differently either. They have all profited mightily over the decades from the inside information available to the party leaderships.
So gee, isn't it just freaking uncanny on how many lawmakers came into politics with far less than the fortune they have been able to amass while 'serving the will of the people?" And don't tell me you don't know what I mean as I am sure you have all heard the usual spiel from these clowns on how they "feel for the people" or that they are "doing everything they can to preserve the American Way" for their constituents all the while laughing on the way to the bank.
So yeah right - piss off already. I think we all know what's been going on in American Politics. And it has absolutely nothing to do with the people. And that just gets me to these yokels from the Tea Party because they have become the most untruthful and dangerous of all when it comes to revealing what their true agendas are.
And just for the record, it saddens me to think that there are those who actually believe that the Tea Party Caucus in Washington has some sort of an altruistic political motive for their actions leading up to the current government shutdown because to do so would be delusional.
The bottom line is the bottom line - American Politics is dysfunctional at best. But when it comes to Ted Cruz and his Tea Party, well they have proven beyond a reasonable doubt that they just don't give a damn about America or the people they claim to represent. Not when they are willing to stain the fabric of Lady Liberty's dress with their seminal fluids after they completely bringing her down to her knees.
So believe me, that ain't no Green Eggs and Ham Ted Cruz is serving up.
If anything it's Green Eggs and Political Scam!
