A Tea Party Manifesto

Listen up, leftist idiots (and really, is there any other kind?): over at the WSJ, Dick Armey and Matt Kibbe describe the movement that is going to crush you ruinous sonsabitches in November.

The rebellion's name derives from the glorious rant of CNBC commentator Rick Santelli, who in February 2009 called for a new "tea party" from the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. By doing so he reminded all of us that America was founded on the revolutionary principle of citizen participation, citizen activism and the primacy of the individual over the government. That's the tea party ethos.
The left fears the Tea Party movement because they don't understand it, and that works to Tea Partiers' advantage: the opposition can't even fathom the thinking behind it. They're still searching in vain to discover who leads it, when no-one does or ever will, just as no one individual leads or drives a free market of any other kind.

I know this piece calls for being assertive but respectful. I agree as it applies to members of the movement and the general discourse. For those on the left responsible for the mess America is in today, no. Not now, not ever. They are the enemy; they are the ones the Tea Partiers are sworn to defeat and cast out of power in the name of restoring the Republic. They deserve nothing but contempt and, where possible, prosecution under the law.

Because sometimes "deserve" has everything to do with it.
