Tea partiers vow revenge over health overhaul
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – If you thought Tea Party activists were mad before, you ain’t seen nothing yet.
Instead of being discouraged by passage of health care reform, tea party activists across the country say the defeat is a rallying cry that makes them more focused than ever on voting out any lawmaker who supported the measure.
“We’re not going to stop. Obviously, the whole tea party movement started because we’re about smaller government and less spending and less taxes. There is absolutely no way we can pay for this,” said Denise Cattoni, state coordinator for Illinois Tea Party, an umbrella group for about 50 groups from around Illinois.
Cattoni says the health care defeat doesn’t deflate tea party activists. “We couldn’t stop it because of the shenanigans that went on in Washington,” Cattoni said. “People are definitely more driven today than they were yesterday without a doubt.”
A group of mostly Republican attorneys general were girding for a legal fight, filing a lawsuit Tuesday in federal court in Florida within moments of the landmark health care reforms being signed into law by President Barack Obama.

Tea partiers vow revenge over health overhaul
That’s what I’m talking about! TEA Party folks, getting LOUD and PROUD!
Not laying low, not hiding, but standing TALL and standing for America! Unafraid, courageous and undaunted. A political group that’s doing EXACTLY what it should be doing.
Within hours of its passage, conservative commentators Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh — darlings of the tea party movement — were venting their anger, vowing a bloodbath at the polls on Election Day.
“We need to defeat these bastards. We need to wipe them out,” Limbaugh said. “We need to chase them out of town. But we need to do more than that. We need to elect conservatives. If there are Republican primaries, elect conservatives and then defeat the Democrats — every last one of them — and then we start the repeal process.”
I am in total, 100% agreement with Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck on this. We WILL defeat these bastards, this group of un-American asshats have attacked the American people and usurped the constitution. The TEA Party either stands and fights or loses ALL credibility!
Tea party activists said they do not see passage of the reforms that usher in near-universal medical coverage as the end of the debate. Instead, they’re looking to push for its repeal on several fronts: in the courts and during this year’s elections.
So far, the nascent movement has almost reveled in its rebellious and grass roots nature and has avoided becoming as much a part of the establishment as the Republican and Democratic parties. But some tea party organizers see the health care debate as a galvanizing force that could stir its followers to greater action and something to rally around with midterm elections this year.
Sadly, there are some TEA Party leaders that are suggesting that members lay low for fear of their activities being monitored, their phones being tapped, their words being read.
Fear of being monitored? FEAR it? HELL NO, look forward to it, want it, encourage it, seek it at every opportunity!
But remember this: Always speak the truth. Speak intelligently. DO NOT make threats of violence or death against Obama or any members of the Congress or the Senate. Assemble LEGALLY, and peacefully. NEVER utter threats against any that oppose the TEA Party. Be an American PATRIOT in every sense of the word!
Be proud of this USA and all that She should stand for.
What actions have I enumerated in that paragraph indicates ANY reason, or need, to lay low or become secretive?
If I wanted to lay low and go unnoticed, I wouldn’t be putting my name and picture on this blog. I wouldn’t be making post after post denouncing the travesty that we are all seeing take place before our eyes. If I were afraid of government infiltration or observation I wouldn’t do so. I am NOT afraid of the U.S. government. Any that ARE afraid need to retire from the field of battle poste haste!
“There’s going to be a whole, all-out effort for an Election Day onslaught,” said Michael Caputo, a public relations consultant who works with tea party activists on the national level, as well as in Florida and New York. “The health care process has been an incendiary issue for the tea party organizations since Day 1. Losing that vote is going to inflame them more.”
These efforts by TEA Party members, real Conservatives and REAL GOP folks, combined with the actions of our Attorneys General, and the grace of God, is all we need to win!
Fear NO MAN, no group, no political party or leftist ideology! The TRUTH will stand the light of day, and We, The People, and the people of the TEA Party, WILL be speaking that truth for ALL to hear.
There’s quite a bit more to this story from the original source, I hope you will read it all! And I ask this all reading here, keep talking, keep posting, keep stirring it up as much as possible. Never give up the fight and when elections roll around, remember WHY we fight!
Remember in November!
