Primary elections: more important

Team New Jersey. Not a party. A team. And right now they say: not another Bush!

 

If you do not take an interest in the affairs of your government, then you are doomed to live under the rule of fools.

- Plato

If you believe in freedom, liberty, and the unfettered opportunity to prosper is as American as apple pie, think again. In reality, politics in America has deteriorated. Greed, corruption, and the lust for power by those in Washington have become the norm. The current crop of self-serving establishment leaders have blatantly abused their offices, as well as violated their oaths of office.

TEA Party v. GOP establishment

TEA Party to GOP establishment: enough already.

As the 2016 race for the White House heats up, concerned citizens and a growing list of TEA parties around this great nation have united to send the GOP a message loud and clear. In an effort to give a unified voice to the growing movement, the Bayshore TEA Party in New Jersey reached out to TEA parties throughout the country, encouraging them to join their voices with others.

Battle cry TeamNJ v. The Machine

Team New Jersey. Not a party. A team. And right now they say: not another Bush!

TeamNJ has always advocated that voters should stand behind candidates of high moral character regardless of party affiliation. The problem in politics today is the public no longer chooses the candidate. It’s become apparent it is no longer about values, public policy, or what is beneficial to the public. It’s all about the “machine,” or should I say the “establishment” and of course, money.

Harry Reid show: who’s to blame?

Harry Reid: 'Boss' of Nevada?

Last night, Bradlee Dean asked who’s to blame for the rise of tyranny in any society. He made an excellent case that those who let the tyrant take power, must blame themselves. Today, as Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.) adds outrage to outrage, in and out of the United States Senate, we should ask ourselves that question again. Why is the Harry Reid Show not yet in reruns? Because we keep it going. We not only tune in. We produce it. And we can stop producing the Harry Reid Show.

Sink, sank, sunk

Is this what Alex Sink thinks immigrants are only good for?

Yesterday, an unknown Republican held a House seat (Florida’s 13th) by a narrow margin: two percent of the vote in a light turnout. (See also here in The Washington Post.) David Jolly managed to defeat Alex Sink, though far more people in Pinellas County knew her than him. As anyone could have said ahead of time, the Democrats deny this race portends anything about whether they will retake the House this fall, or lose the Senate instead, or keep things as they are.

We the People’s Non-party Party

Team New Jersey. Not a party. A team. And right now they say: not another Bush!

The glaring failures of the two-party system have been an increasing concern among patriots who long for representatives that represent the people rather than political cabals. The primal dissatisfaction of the majority of Americans with both Parties is palpable. The Democrats have turned into closet Marxists and the Republicans have turned into spineless compromisers that have turned play-along-to-get-along into a new art form. Both factions seem to be primarily concerned with re-election rather than protecting our Constitutional Republic. They have forgotten that regardless of party labels, we are all Americans and in order to stay Americans, we must protect America.

Love the Constitution – most of the time

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

I just received an email from the Tea Party Command Center entitled  “2016 Poll:  Who is your choice for the Presidential Nomination” and the choices include: Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Rand Paul, Sarah Palin, Rick Santorum, Allan West, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Rick Perry, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan.  The truth of the matter is that any one of those people could do a better job than the person now occupying the White House, though I must admit,  Jeb Bush’s name on the ballot would have me quite upset.

How the Usurper usurped

Obama, hypocrite in chief at the National Prayer Breakfast

There were well over 100 lawsuits that challenged Barack Obama’s place on the ballot in 2008 and 2012. These lawsuits contained a plethora of constitutional reasons why the man now occupying the White House should not have been on the ballot. Unfortunately, there were also a plethora of reasons why the lawsuits were dismissed and ignored – most of them revealing more about the judges and their disregard for the Constitution than the Usurper himself.

Evolution and creation in NJ District 12

Alieta Eck makes evolution and creation a campaign issue

The debate between creation and evolution became explicitly political last night. An incumbent Representative set that stage last month. He introduced, for the second time, a resolution to make Charles Darwin’s birthday a federal holiday. Last night his announced Republican opponent condemned him for it. And she did so on explicitly philosophical grounds. To wit: evolution, as a philosophy, causes greater social harm than does creation.

New Jersey: education of a GOP governor

Flag of New Jersey

Here in New Jersey we have had a long history of being governed by an endless conglomeration of crooks, creeps, socialists and progressives.  They have hailed from various assortments of Democrats, Independents and Republicans.  What each of them had in common, was their own contribution to the sorry state of this state.
