The Progressive

Tea Party
Commentary By John Paul Culotta

Commentators and the leaders of the Republican Party feel 2010 will be a great year for the Grand Old Party. This November will be a decisive year for the direction this nation will follow. Many conservatives are stating the GOP is not as doctrinaire when it holds the reigns of power. Populist rage for the economic decline of the middle class and the genuine change in the sexual mores of the American people is demonstrated in the Tea Party movement.

American politics needs a conservative viewpoint expressed with decorum and with genuine analysis of the problems and issues facing American families. It would also be appropriate for solutions to be offered and debated in order for the American people to believe in the political process again. Liberals and progressives need also to address the fact that their policies need to be explained and that when their leaders are elected that the electorate expects results.

Our present administration was elected because of the financial meltdown and the economic hardship many Americans have because of the mismanagement of previous administrations and especially the Bush 2 regime. Tax cuts that benefit the more prosperous among us and large budget deficits of George W now must be addressed. Now this nation needs to resolve the increasing gap between the prosperous and those who are completely devoid of economic security.

We now are facing an economic future where future generations will not be able to have the lifestyle of their parents and grandparents. This and the increasingly widening gap between the

FULL poor and wealthy in our society is a recipe for disaster and may lead to social unrest.

This is also why a tea party movement exists. The problem is that the tea party activists desire that the debate that was resolved in the age of Andrew Jackson and the bloody civil war be reopened. There is a movement to allow individual states the right to nullify federal law within their borders. This may lead to a further decline in serious political discourse. No nation can exist without a clear definition of political limitations.
