King George Tea Party
28 February 2020
Fellow Members of the King George TEA Party:
This is a quick note due to the need to quickly disseminate information about this subject so that you have sufficient time to decide what you want to do before the deadline (Super Tuesday). As noted in the previous KGTP Newsletter (24 February), Bob reminded everyone that the Virginia Democrats will hold their primary on Tuesday 3 March and (according to their rules, i.e., an “open primary") anyone can participate. Today’s news features an article that further amplifies that thought:
Leading up to any other election I would not give “party raiding” a single thought. But then again, the American people have never had such a socialist-leaning array of forces poised against it from within. The entire Democrat Party platform is socialist-lite and this was blatantly evident while watching their recent debates. Some members of the Democratic party are openly socialist and the most notable being Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Instead of being impartial reporters, major elements of the media decidedly support the Democrats and their socialist political agenda and this bias is evident in their broadcasts. The American educational system, from elementary school teachers through university professors, is rife with socialist indoctrination to the point where history books are being re-written to paint Socialism as a viable form of government.
It may be time to actively encourage the American people to have that conversation in the choice between freedom or slavery; between Capitalism versus Socialism.
I have full faith that We The People will reject socialism, and thus any candidate associated with it, when the choice is presented openly. As noted above, we have experienced what I have often called “creeping socialism” and ill-informed voters have often chosen to support socialist-leaning politicians and socialist policies when their true intent is concealed. Barack Obama is the most notable example of a socialist politician that was successful in concealing his true intent. If We The People had better understood what Obama meant when he said, “We are just five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America” I am sure that he would not have been elected President.
The only way to do that, though, is to see that the choice is presented openly much like New Hampshire’s state motto, “Live Free Or Die.” Ensuring that Bernie Sanders, a life-long avowed Socialist who has freely operated for decades associated with the Democrat Party, is selected to become the Democrat party’s nomination for President is one way to raise that choice for a nation-wide discussion. If any other Democrat (Biden, Bloomberg, Warren, etc.) is selected to be their party’s nominee for President then We The People will not be forced to confront the true enemy -the Progressive’s creeping Socialism- and deliberately choose to retain our Republic. They (Biden, Bloomberg, Warren, etc.) actively conceal their socialist leanings.
Many Conservatives had to “hold their nose” voting for the John McCain over Barack Obama. Many did so again when voting for Mitt Romney four years later. These were votes for very flawed candidates but the alternative, i.e., not voting, was unacceptable because it ensured Obama’s success. Voting for Bernie Sanders in a state primary -even in an effort to ensure President Trump’s success in this election- may require more than just holding one’s nose. For me, personally, I would forever have to live with the fact that I voted for a Socialist (Yuck!). But doing so would be an honest effort to bring about electoral clarity in America’s decision between Socialism versus Capitalism.
Let your conscience be your guide on 3 March when the Democrats hold their Primary.
As always, I welcome any questions or comments you may have.
