Midwest Iced Tea

This past Friday, my family attended our first Tea Party Rally.  When we first pulled up we were surrounded by angry mobs, violent protests, and obscene signs….Yeah…right.  

Much to the chagrin of the liberal media there were no racists to be found!  The “rampant anger” and “extremists” was a calm ho-hum.  Rather than spitting protestors, we saw children playing a rabid game of tag and the occasional patriotic puppy.  I tell you, having such a strong faith in Rachel Maddow et. al, I was sorely disappointed.  (sarcasm intended and used to the fullest power.) Sadly, my children won’t need to sob their horrific, life altering stories out to Oprah, after all.  Nope, not much to see.  Just some America-loving, flag-toting, heartland-living, hot dog-eating, good ol’ people.  No skinheads.  No rednecks.  No extremists.  Sorry, Ms. Behar.  Maybe that’s why the media weren’t there?  If they had actual footage to show, they’d have a harder time lying and making up wildly absurd stories.

Having said that, my only disappointment, as your everyday, conservative, right-wing extremist, was not having the chance to get a picture with Mike Pence.  Richard Mourdock, incumbent, Republican candidate for state treasurer was the first guest speaker.  If you want to hear fabulous, historical, and motivating speaking, visit a rally where this man is present.  His knowledge of foundational American heritage is a sterling gift to the audience.  His genuine humility was refreshing in an age of corrupt politician ya-hoos.  Mike Pence was the second guest speaker and one of the few people I get “star struck” at.  Though a prominent politician and Washington heavyweight,  his ability to connect with Midwesterners is a rare gift noting his passion to listen to Americans.  (Huh, what a concept?!) 

What preceded these impressive orators was the acknowledgement of One greater than I, the crowd, the proud veterans, certainly any politician – God.  Before anyone spoke, we prayed.  It’s mind-boggling to me that the majority of people would be perfectly fine (and some even vehemently) throwing God out of any place within this nation.  The fact is, that when our Founding Fathers instituted the “separation of church and state” it wasn’t a literal act, blowing God off and excluding Him at all costs.  They were trying to leave God on the throne, but give people the right to come to it.  Not to force them to a particular house of worship, as the King of England did with the Anglican church, or to worship at all!  They understood, better than anyone, the Sovereign role that the Almighty played in leading them to this great land.  But, as with everything else since the Fall of Man way back in the Garden, the original design is perverted, skewed and exploited.  Today it’s in the name of sanctioned Government Religion a.k.a. POLITICAL CORRECTNESS.  Rather than follow the Bible, daily changes in rules, etiquette, and speech are sacred, forming an idol that would put the golden calf to shame.  Truth is whatever the one with the most earthly power says it is.  Because we have allowed the extermination of our Creator, we now find ourselves in the mess we currently reside in.  Its time for this nation to WAKE UP!  If we stand by and watch the political door force God out, God will eventually allow the door to close.  He will give the people over to what they want.  That is nothing any of us want to seeThe path is swiftly headed in that direction.….

Decay.  Devalue.  Default.  Demolition.  Destruction.

The choice is up to us.

    I hope to see you and your family at future events. This was my fourth Tea Party event and I assure you that what you saw are exactly the people that make up this movement–Christian (mostly, but not exclusively), conservative, Constitutionalists, Patriots that are truly frightened that the country we love faces a threat to its survival unmatched since the Civil War.

    Your children and grandchildren will one day read of these events either as the last gasps of a dying order that preceded the Democratic Socialist States of America, or as the movement that restored the United States of America to government of the people, by the people, and for the people. I pray that God will grant us the latter.

    Here is my report, with many photos, on the Tea Party Express visit to Bloomington, Sept., 2009:
