“Whatever Happened to Common Sense?” – E.T. Williams

Elmer (E.T.) Williams is a modern day prophet, verbally flogging Americans  for their political sins, and dragging them back to the land of common sense.  Check out his Blog.  From there you can surf his videos, pick up his books, and tune into “the Doctor of Common Sense” on blogtalkradio.

Like Pharmer,  Mr. Williams has concluded that the two dominant political parties are not getting the job done, and he’s entertaining the probability of a third party alternative.

Watch: Mr. Williams processes the Fast and Furious gun running debacle for the Obama Supporters:

Sez Peggy:

“I think the Tea Party is going to have to look at itself,” Noonan said. “It’s been so helpful to the Republican Party in the past. It saved it by not going third party in 2010, helping the Republicans sweep the House. But the Tea Party style of rage is not one that wins over converts and makes people lean towards them and say, ‘I want to listen to you.’ I think a friendly persuasion has to begin now from the Republican Party to people of the United States.”

So… Pharmer wrote back to Peggy:

Ms. Noonan,

With your latest comment on Tea Party “rage” you remain a bipedal argument for a third party.

The Tea Party began as the most orderly, well behaved protest movement in history.  It remains so today as a fastidiously law-abiding grass roots political movement, yet it is constantly dissed by the establishment republicans, who are more concerned with their own positions in Washington DC, than for the U.S. itself.

The rest of us are not insulated from the ill effects of the Obama administration. We can’t hide money offshore, or leave the country in case of disaster, as the sell-outs in Washington can.

Perhaps you’re upset that some of the more conscientious Tea Party members could not stomach another moderate, and quietly stayed home on Nov. 6th. I left the republican party after they threw Akin and Mourdock under the bus, though I did vote to remove Obama. Democrats don’t publicly eat their own as republicans do.

A third party will form when the republicans further turn themselves into democrats in order to pretend that they “care” for people. After the Chinese credit runs out, neither old party will be able to entice voters with government checks.

According to Gallup, immigration is NOT topmost on the list of issues for Hispanic voters. So having the republicans satisfy the democrat need for more voter base will not do any good.  Remember, Reagan tried it, and it didn’t help.

A government that actually “cared” for people would get out of the way and let them prosper.

Look for that third party that you’re helping to form.  Democrats seem to prevail with their rage, lawlessness and general trashy behavior. Maybe a little rage would help the Tea Party ;-). 

Freedom Works: We Now Have to Monitor the RNC

Freedom works, a most prominent organizing body of the Tea Party summarizes the dis-unifying hubbub concerning the election and handling of delegates to the Republican convention. This has extreme significance for the grass roots of the party to bring up candidates for election and to affect the party platform.
As of this convention, the Republican Party has, through rules changes, made itself more of a top down party like the Democrats, instead of one which has to listen to the grass roots.
In very brief, The RNC anointed presidential candidate will be able to choose delegates from the states (thus eliminating dissenters such as the Ron-Paulians or those who continued to support Santorum or Gingrich). It also changed a rule which now allows the RNC to change party rules between conventions when no one is looking. (Now Freedom Works will be looking, so pay attention to them.) This will suppress the grass roots influence on what is contained in the Republican platform. Expect the social issues to disappear unless the RNC becomes afraid of a third party split.

The best description of the events at the convention is below. Click it. Please email that link or this article.

Romney's "RNC Power Grab": What Really Happened | FreedomWorks.

The very upset Ron-Paulians put out their own video <--(click to view it) to express their displeasure. You'll hear audio of a voice vote which was ignored and suppressed by John Boehner at the convention. Below is “teleprompter” imagery of the PRE-ORDAINED nature of the conclusion., found at Freedom Works.

We have to first get Obama out, then we have to go to work on the Republican national committee. If the Tea Party successfully brings up their own candidates as independents in the state elections, room for the grass roots might be recreated within the Republican party, or perhaps a third party will form. Todd Akin is effectively an independent after the RNC cut all funding. Electing him is a good opportunity for the conservatives to show the RNC that it is no longer a vital part of the political process.

Rick Santorum bows out of Presidential race — Tea Party for Indiana?

Rick Santorum bows out of Presidential race | Washington Times Communities.

Some love comes from the Communities of the Washington Times for Santorum as he bows out of the presidential race.

This leaves only Romney to have any serious chance of winning the nomination.

Once more, Indiana has no real voice in choosing the Republican candidate for the Presidency. In light of this trend, do you think it would make sense for the Tea Party to become Indiana’s opposition party to the Democrats?

Speaking of Tea Party, We the Hoosiers will hear up to four Congressional candidates (Don Bates, Jr.,Bill Frazier, Travis Hankins and Joe VanWyke) who are vying for the 6th district seat.
