Again, I’m not big on posting videos for a post, but, this is worthwhile to watch in more than a couple of ways. One of the people interviewed notes that there are no Tea-partiers in Chicago, that it’s one of the most Dem cities in the nation. But, there they are, with no prospects and Mr. Hopey/Changey isn’t offering them any.
They know and understand that raising the minimum wage isn’t going to bring them jobs. They know and understand the blame game doesn’t fix anything. There’s a lot more in the video.
And, this is what I’ve frequently referred to as one of the many places ripe for a 3rd party. The Republican brand in places like Chicago is irrevocably damaged. In our lifetime, we’ll never see a significant movement to the Reupub part in that area. But, in the video, one can easily see the utter disappointment and dissatisfaction with Dems and president Zero.
So, what happens if people of the Tea Party/libertarian bent sends some resources their way? By listening to their voices, one can easily see where we can come together with many of the issues they brought up. You don’t have to call it “Tea Party”, you don’t have to call it “Libertarian”, but, if the message of prosperity and freedom is the same, who cares what you call it? These are the places to go to end the bipartisan stranglehold the big government lunatics have on this nation.
The reason why you see establishment Repubs so forcefully antagonistic to their potential Tea Party allies is because they’re in their own backyard. Would they oppose an attack in the Dems backyard? I seriously doubt it. Heck, you could probably get them to kick in some cash for such an effort! Here’s the weakness of the flanks of the big political machines who offer nothing but big government and despair, and hopelessness and corruption.
