Rush Limbaugh And The Tea Party Patriots/FreedomWorks March On Washington

Rush Limbaugh is again doing what he always does best–LYING!

On today’s radio show, he told his audience that 1.5 MILLION people had marched on Washington, which if true, would have far surpassed the Civil Rights March in 1963, any of the anti Vietnam war marches in the late 1960s and 1970s, and even the “Million Man March” of Louis Farrakhan in the mid 1990s.

Except for one problem–it is a MASSIVE LIE! At most, there were maybe 70,000 marchers, many of them seemingly confused and misdirected, based on their body language as observed on C Span, which covered the entire event on Saturday.

It was hard to understand why many were there, as they seemed to be protesting taxes, denying global warming, complaining about government spending, claiming they were patriotic, and worried about the Fascist-Nazi-Communist-Socialist-Muslim Barack Obama. There were tones of racism and hate demonstrated by the signs many of these misdirected souls showed to the cameras of C Span.

It was actually quite a pitiful scene, because these people seemed to blame Obama for everything under the sun, as if he created the mess we are in. The fact that we spent trillions of dollars without raising taxes for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and initiated a prescription drug plan without figuring out how to finance it, all this under President Bush, was never mentioned. The fact that the Bush Presidency started the financial rescue plan a year ago was conveniently forgotten, and it was as if Barack Obama made this up himself as a plan to revive the economy.

The feeling gained was that IF we were to let these demonstrators have impact on the nation, then we would be in deep trouble, as they have no clue to what the crisis truly is and what must be done. We need INTELLIGENT, REASONABLE people to lead us and get us out of the morass, not the kind of people who think George W. Bush was a great President, and convince themselves that all of the ills of the country have suddenly come about under Barack Obama.

A Proposal To FreedomWorks And Tea Party Patriots: Let’s Do It Your Way!

Ok, FreedomWorks and Tea Party Patriots, we have heard and seen your message on the Capitol Mall and in cities all over the country on this significant day, September 12, 2009!

We understand you want to take back America, want to stop the burden of taxation, want to restore liberty, want to promote a return to the old virtues of family, community, and personal responsibility, with no such thing as being your “brother’s keeper”. In other words, you want to go back to the age of unbridled capitalism, individualism, small town America, a country without major international commitments, and a time when either we did not have racial and ethnic and religious minorities, but if they existed anyway, they knew their status in society.

Ok, so let’s work to bring this back! First thing is cut defense dramatically, as we cannot afford it. Next, cut Social Security and Medicare, as they are socialistic programs. Third, we have to get rid of bureaucracy in government and unnecessary civil servants, so we have to cut out mail delivery, bank deposit insurance, unemployment compensation, aid to disabled and handicapped people, research on health issues and disease, public schools, parks, beaches, libraries, public universities and community colleges, the police force, firefighters, prison guards, road building, the court system, regulation of banks and stock markets, public transportation, and whatever else is not specifically mentioned in this paragraph, but is obviously wasteful spending and not allowed in the Constitution!

Imagine, almost no government, and lots of taxes saved, and a sense of freedom and liberty! Isn’t this GRAND, or is it?

Is it possible you guys and gals in the FreedomWorks and Tea Party Patriots just might reconsider when you see the implications of what you are demanding?

Is it possible that the American people will come to realize that you DON’T have the solutions, and in fact, when one of you said, we are “not our brother’s keepers”, that that is not following religious teachings which you espouse to, as Jesus Christ said just that, that we ARE “our brother’s keepers”?

In other words, why are you doing what you are doing? Could it be you are arousing discontent for your own financial and power advantages? Oh no, you say, NO WAY, but I say it is very obvious that you who lead this march today are deceiving the American people, and misleading them in a delusional way!

The reality is there is no “free lunch”! If you want government, which despite what you say we all NEED, then you MUST PAY TAXES as part of the responsibility of citizenship! Anything else espoused is a BUNCH OF LIES perpetrated on the American people to their detriment!
