Dear Teabaggers – err Suckers – You Just Lost

October 31, 2010

Dear Tea Party the next election is not a mid-term, I expect the Republican Party to become more mainstream and the rhetoric and actions to become less populist and more corporatist. I expect the money that has been thrown at your radical agenda to dry up rapidly since as Frank Rich points out today:

For sure, the Republican elites found the Tea Party invaluable on the way to this Election Day. And not merely, as Huckabee has it, because they wanted its foot soldiers. What made the Tea Party most useful was that its loud populist message gave the G.O.P. just the cover it needed both to camouflage its corporate patrons and to rebrand itself as a party miraculously antithetical to the despised G.O.P. that gave us George W. Bush and record deficits only yesterday.

So dear Tea Party the Republican party has in no way changed its policies nor its patrons. Remember what they have done in the past?

1] Tax cuts for their patrons.
2] Supporting sending jobs to anywhere but the homeland.
3] Bailing out the elite at every turn.
4] Increased the deficit exponentially, they’ll be fine in a tax haven and you’ll be left in a dust bowl.

Do you really think they have changed?

Do you really expect that your candidates waving the flag of anti-intellectualism as a banner have a hope in hell of winning the game in Washington? They will toasted, bribed and then used by the entrenched party mandarins.

The corporations with the help of that lovely SCOTUSdecision have poured money into Tea Party campaigns do you really think they will not demand payback?

I will make a prediction here, that payback will not be to your benefit.

You may be sincere in your talk about freedom; I still haven’t worked that out, but I will give you some credit for honesty. However your idea of freedom and the corporations are not the same thing at all, you talk about your private lives they talk about their ability to make profit. Now ask yourselves what limits their profits.

1] Regulations
2] Wages
3] Corporate taxes.

Their simple mantra, cut all three of the above anything else is supplementary and hence unnecessary; for example.

1] Safe working conditions.
2] Livable wage
3] You.

Do not matter.

So your screams of

1] Birth certificates
2] Death panels
3] America is a christian country.
4] No more taxes

Were all given a nod and a wink by the Washington elite as they used you to get their real agenda through, and I’m afraid it has nothing to do with you.

So even if they win you will lose, and the disparity will grow, I hope you are content with your $300 tax cut buy-off; as the banks, corporations and the uber-rich walk off with our country.

If on Wednesday you feel like partying like never before just remember our warnings from here on the left:

You just lost.

Unless of course you happen to own a corporation/bank/lobby firm or be in the top 0.1%, then boogie on down.


  1. See.. I’m not the only one.. Those teabaggers are going to mess up the WORKS.. I say vote INDEPENDENT..

  2. O I get it alright. But it is amazing how many idiots there are out there voting against thier own interests. Poor folk cheering on the Banks, the oil spillers, and the international killers. Cut those taxes for the ultra rich!!!
