Tea Party: Come Together
My late momma taught my siblings and me to never put family business in the street. However, my Tea Party family must deal with this issue if we are to accomplish our mission to halt Obama's tyranny and transformation of America into his socialist/progressive dream. The issue of which I speak is unity.
Early in our Tea Party movement four years ago, I was shocked to encounter turf wars and various selfish agendas. The people, the patriots who invest time and money for the movement, are not the problem. I am talking about some in leadership positions.
A major Tea Party website banned me from posting because I mentioned another Tea Party group. I thought, aren't we all on the same team? I quickly learned that we were not. Some opportunists joined the Tea Party simply because it was the hot new thing.
Then there are the single-issue folks. If your Tea Party group does not channel all of its efforts to the issue about which I am most passionate, I quit!
Let us not forget the doom-and-gloom folks. Their e-mails are as follows: "Lloyd, you are an idiot for even trying to make a difference. Both parties are hopelessly corrupt." No one -- I repeat: no one -- can foresee the future well enough to be completely fatalistic. Numerous times in my life, when all hope appeared to be lost, God intervened. Thus, I have learned to move forward, always attempting to do the right thing, and deliver my best at whatever God has put in front of me to do.
The Bible says, "One can put a thousand to flight, two can put ten thousand to flight" (Deuteronomy 32:30). In other words, our efforts are greatly increased when we work together.
Round one of the battle to restore America is over -- socialism won via Obama's re-election. As we enter round two, it is more crucial than ever that we put aside pettiness and selfishness. We must come together to save the greatest nation on the planet. Am I talking about sacrificing core beliefs? Absolutely not.
Patriots, there will always be issues on which we disagree. Such is human nature. Someone said that if you find a perfect church, please do not join it, because you will mess it up. I am simply asking that we be more diligent in finding common ground - areas in which we do agree -- and work together for the greater good.
Ronald Reagan said, "There is no limit to what you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit." Patriots, I do not care who gets the credit. I just want to see stronger opposition to Obama's agenda.
Obama and company are destroying our country, folks. America cannot survive with us fighting about who gets to sit on the front row.
Please do not think that I am being Mr. High & Mighty preaching to you. In my youth, I made the mistake of making certain situations about me, resulting in embarrassing consequences. When you come to a situation thinking How can I help? and How can I make a positive difference?, good things happen for all involved.
Brothers and sisters, the battle is much, much bigger than us. America, freedom and liberty are at stake.
Someone should organize Tea Party Unity rallies -- groups across America coming together, showing solidarity in our shared mission to restore America.
Do not allow one group to hog the stage -- each Tea Party group should be equally represented. Do not allow an ego-driven, long-winded knucklehead speaker who is disrespectful of his allotted time assignment to hijack the rally. The rallies must be about serving the attendees and not about individual egos or agendas. We can no longer waste time, energy, and resources on such selfish nonsense.
Every time the Obama media hear negative news and infighting in the Tea Party, they have an orgasm. Since our inception, Obama's media has tried to portray white Tea Party members as redneck racists against a black president and black members like me as Uncle-Tom sellouts.
Karl Rove recently revealed that the Tea Party is also in the crosshairs of the GOP.
So, brothers and sisters, it is our patriotic duty to be on our best behavior. Cease infighting and come together, focused on achieving our divinely inspired common goal of restoring America back to the vision of our Founding Fathers and the Constitution.
If we, the Tea Party, do not save America, no one will. God bless.
