If the "Silent Majority" doesn't wake up and get vocal, there will be nothing left to defend. Silence is surrender. We have a lot to do and very little time in which to do it. Everyone must get involved and vote! Let's put teeth into the tea party movement by starting a new "Tea Party" open to all those who love the REAL America, from any current parties as well as independents and past non-voters. This party will pledge to make defense of and adherence to our Constitution their first priority. The Tea Party will first and foremost stand for strict constitutional government. Let's put an end to creeping socialism that is rapidly evolving to rampaging socialism!
I received yet another email petition about social security changes signed by 991 of the hoped-for 1000 signatures.
Instructions called for the 1000th signee to send the peitition on to the "firstname.lastname@example.org" email address. That address is not being monitored. So I responded to many of the email addresses in the email history with the following message.
Regarding the nearly 1000 names on the petition, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the Obama administration is not reading email sent to the email@example.com mail box. Try to send a message and you'll get a response to that effect. I've been down this road before and know from experience.
Obama really DOES NOT WANT TO HEAR from the American people (unless, of course, they are fawning all over him)! His efforts to appear otherwise are merely the charade of deception that is brilliantly practiced by this puppet president (who doesn't even know he is a puppet).
What part of OBAMA THE NARCISSIST do people not understand?
Obama lives in a world of self-adulation. He has been carefully crafted during and since his college years to nurture his narcissist tendencies to create the perfect stooge to lead the socialist revolution -- consequently the slogans and symbols all about HIM! He is an "empty-suit" puppet with no real job experience, has never earned a real living, and is merely the puppet creation of George Soros and his minions as a front for the long-established drive to (1) socialize the US, and (2) turn over all our sovereignty to a socialist world-government headed by the UN that will pick the remains of the US to redistribute to the rest of the world.
Obama's puppet-masters will achieve this by:
Creating monetary and government spending policies that overburden capitalism so they can (falsely) claim that "capitalism doesn't work",
Enacting anti-carbon/anti-energy policies designed to destroy cheap, efficient energy from nuclear, oil, coal, and natural gas, and,
Heaping even more mountains of restrictive regulations and bureaucratic red tape on what little is left of the productive sector. Bans on new refinery development, or old refinery improvements can be buried within healthcare legislation. That's how these deceivers work.
It is vital to understand that capitalism is the ONLY free economic system that can support a politically free people. Remove capitalism and you remove the support for political freedom. It's a simple equation that socialists have understood for generations. This is why Leftist teachers and college professors preach anti-capitalist dogma to their students.
Obama's policies are designed to increase the cost of everything, driving people to demand personal financial bailouts (i.e., increase the "needy" sector on the government dole). Free-spending bankrupt liberal state governments will demand their bailouts (and are already getting them) so they can continue their bankrupting of the states (thereby further weakening state governments relative to the federal government).
This will cause further inflation as the taxpaying base rapidly shrinks and the recipients of inflated currency increase.
Those actions, coupled with the following additional burdens, are designed to produce the complete destruction of our Constitutional Republic as we once knew it:
Union extortions bringing ever-increasing costs of production,
Silencing of the opposition (i.e., "talk radio") while bailing out failed news media loyal to the socialist agenda, and,
Regulations designed to confiscate and make ownership of guns virtually impossible,
Using a government-funded corrupt ACORN and "paid volunteers" nurtured in the socialist school system to believe the Obama "change" and "new way" is far superior to the "old capitalist world of greed", the emboldened socialist movement will control all future elections through both fraud and control of the census procedure by simply padding the figures for highly socialist (formerly "Democrat") areas and reducing figures for opposition areas, thus assuring that a large vote majority is always produced for the Socialist candidates (the former "Democrat" party will become the new "Social Democrat" party and ultimately, just the "Socialist" party as more socialist drones on the government payroll are churned out of an increasingly Leftist school system).
If the "Silent Majority" doesn't wake up and get vocal, there will be nothing left to defend.
Sending petitions to a non-working mailbox isn't going to do it. These actions are simply diversions from what must ultimately be done.
Better to organize neighborhood "tea parties" and then "community tea parties" and then "regional tea parties" ... then "statewide tea parties" ... and finally, a "national tea party" in Washington, DC (Den of Corruption)!
A national symbol for these tea parties is needed ... perhaps a tea bag with an upside-down American Flag in the background? Yard signs should feature the symbol as well as stick-on stamps for all postage we send ... and every email we send should contain the image.
The "tea party" movement will be the basis for the formation of a new political party, the "Tea Party" that is open to all those who love the REAL America, both from the Democrat and Republican Parties, and who pledge to make defense of and adherence to our Constitution their first priority. The Tea Party will first and foremost stand for strict constitutional interpretation.
At the next several election cycles, we must replace every incumbent with candidates committed to adopting changes designed to return government to the vision of our Founders. This will be achieved by using these tea parties to assure the election to the US Congress and Presidency of candidates who pledge to immediately, as their number one priority, pass and strongly support rapid state approval of two constitutional amendments:
Single Term Amendment: Limit the term for every elected federal office to ONE SINGLE TERM (Obama-ites already have proposed removal of the two-term limit to the presidency!). This amendment would also change the term of the House to a single four-year term with election of 50% of each state's representatives staggered each two years. It would also change the presidential term to one six-year term. Changes would begin with the next election so that no sitting member could be re-elected.
Constitutionality Amendment: Part A would require that every bill passed by Congress and every Presidential Executive Order (EO) include a single specific citation from our Constitution under which the Federal Government has authority to act as required by the proposed bill. All bills and EOs will be submitted to the US Supreme Court (SC) for affirmation of legitimate constitutional authority. If the authority is found lacking, the SC would summarize the deficiencies and return the bill to the appropriate branch for correction or no further action. No President would receive any bill for consideration unless the SC has affirmed its constitutionality. The requirement for a single specific citation would force bills and EOs to deal with a single issue. Part B would require that every existing law, regulation and EO be reviewed for constitutionality and, if found lacking, be struck down with specific citation of the deficiency by the SC.
These two amendments are the ONLY practical peaceful remedy to the grave threat to US sovereignty that is currently moving ahead at a rapid pace with the Obama administration. The purpose of the Tea Party will be to put a rapid end to this socialist nonsense at both the federal and state levels.
The first amendment above would severely curtail the impact of lobbies and would make elections far less costly (who's going to spend tens of millions of dollars for a job that will last just 4 or 6 years?). Better people will step forward to serve as there will be NO seniority issues, no embedded tin-horn kinglets (think Harry Reid and Barney Frank, among MANY others). Congress will become what it was intended to be ... a place for people to serve their COUNTRY, not themselves, then get back and live with the regulations they've enacted. The tired old complaint that such limitations would prevent "experience" from being rewarded is responded to by merely reflecting on what such "experience" has brought us to today.
The second amendment above would stop the continuing destruction of constitutional government by the practice of simply ignoring constitutional restraint and doing whatever politicians find is in their own best interests. This began under Woodrow Wilson and continues at an ever-increasing pace. The complaint that it would overwhelm the SC and slow the progress of legislation/regulation is easily countered. First, there is nothing preventing the SC from taking on more staff to help them screen out all bills and EOs that are not subject-specific or otherwise obviously fail the requirements of the amendment. By filtering out unconstitutional measures before they are established and enforced, the SC would relieve its burden in the future by eliminating any complaints based on the constitutionality of any measure that went through this process (as it would have already been deemed constitutional).
A possible third amendment would deal with elected compensation, eliminating all pensions and special medical plans for elected officials. However, this is best done without an amendment and it is likely that if the Tea Party should become a majority reality and enact the above amendments, such reforms would be a natural first step under the new restrictions designed to prevent unconstitutional government from continuing or ever surfacing again.
Today's children and grandchildren are being born with an enormous financial OBLIGATION (greater than the cost of a college education) created by the tin-horn monsters who've set themselves up with permanent jobs in Washington, DC as a special government aristocracy (their laws do not apply to themselves). This is insanity and it MUST STOP, one way or another. It may be too late to avoid violent revolution, but we must do everything we can to make a peaceful, yet rapid transformation of our government from the monster it has become.
Once government is back in the hands of the People, we can then turn our attention to the cesspool of Marxist teachers and professors who have been polluting the minds of generations of students. Government first, the schools, colleges, and universities next.
The Tea Party may be our last hope for peaceful restoration of the great American Constitutional system of government.

Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn't mean politics won't take an interest in you. -- Pericles (430 B.C.)
WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness -- That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly all Experience hath shewn, that Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security....

Biography - Bob Webster
Bob Webster, a 12th-generation descendent of both the Darte family (Connecticut, 1630s) and the Webster family (Massachusetts, 1630s) is a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, who served with General Washington. Bob has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.
A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
