Dream a Little Dream: “The Tea Party Moving Forward”

By Candace E. Salima

The tea party movement has been an interesting one to behold. I have been in the thick of it from the beginning and it has now grown to 39,000,000+ strong and our numbers are only increasing. While splinter groups formed across the nation, Tea Party Patriots has moved forward with action instead of just words. Borrowing from Newt Gingrich’s wildly successful 1980’s “Contract with America,” the Tea Party Patriots have created the Contract from America.

“The Contract from America is a grassroots-generated, crowd-sourced, bottom-up call for real economic conservative and good governance reform in Congress. The Contract from America initiative was developed within the decentralized tea party and 912 movements. Ryan Hecker, a Houston Tea Party Society activist, developed the concept of creating a grassroots-generated call for reform prior to the April 15, 2009 Tax Day Tea Party rallies.”

Go here and choose the issues you feel are the top 10 priorities for America. Choose wisely, but please go choose.

And a note I wish to strongly emphasize. The Tea Party movement, as it has coalesced into a force to be reckoned with, has largely ignored God, focusing instead on America’s wildly out of control federal government. In focusing on the U.S. Constitution, which includes the inviolate Bill of Rights, they do stand for “freedom of religion.” But as a point I feel needs to be strongly stressed, we here in Utah will NEVER remove God from the equation. Along with Governor Palin, we pray for divine intervention in this oncoming train wreck we now identify as America vs. the 111th Congress.

    My number one issue would be to limit Senators and Representatives to two terms each. This would mean they were spending their energy on working for us rather than trying to get relected.

    Number two issue: Keep the government out of our personal lifes.

    Number three: Put prayer, and punishment, back in the schools. I have a teaching license. You cannot teach children who are undisciplined–no matter how much you pay the teachers and prrincipal!

    I appreciate you comments about the presence of God in our national history and the way we have enjoyed our liberties. The nation was founded on a God-centric view of the world. While we have failed to honor his ways of dealing with each other at times, God has been active in our history, and a guiding force in the success, and failures we have experienced. As the conservative movement move forward, our staying power will be our based on our ability to re-address and include the presence of God in our choices, and in our country.

    @ Netti, I agree with you wholeheartedly especially #3. As a parent, i am very involved in my children’ s education and their discipline. I am so upset at our district’s discipline policy I could spit. Because of the “PC” lack of discipline and “mainstreaming” our best and brightest are not being challenged and those who need extra help are not getting it. What a horrible way to educate our future.
