“Refuse to Lose” was the catch phrase Rick Santorum, a loser, used to inspire a few hundred Tea Party supporters in a rally held in Sevierville Tennessee on June 26, 2014.
Rick Santorum could speak with authority about losing as he hasn’t held any political office since 2007. He lost his bid for reelection to the Senate in 2006, and went on to lose his bid for the Republican candidate for President in the 2012 campaign. Rick wasn’t the only loser to appear at the rally in Tennessee. Alan West also flaunted his losing credentials as he lost his bid for reelection to the House of Representatives from Florida in 2012. However Sarah Palin was the oldest loser and quitter to attend the rally, as she lost in 2008, quit in 2009, and has been proclaiming the importance of reloading ever since. After 6 years you’d think she would run out of ammunition? The real story behind the Tennessee rally is not what has been reported, but what hasn’t been reported. The Tea Party is hoping nobody will realize the reality of this rally. Let me put the pieces to this puzzle together.
1. The Tea Party rally was announced at least as early as June 19th.
It was originally planned to be held in Smokey Stadium, a baseball stadium with a capacity of roughly 6000.At the time the rally was announced the Tea Party anticipated the victory of McDaniel over Cochran in Mississippi. That primary was scheduled to be held on Tuesday June 24th, and the rally was scheduled two days later on the 26th. Certainly the Tea Party was planning on a big celebration.
2. The site of the rally was changed from Smokie Stadium to the Convention Center “due to inclement weather forecast”. That change occurred at least five days before the rally. The convention center holds 7500 people so the organizers were moving from a smaller venue to a larger one, accommodating 1000 more people than the first. It doesn’t appear the weather was really a factor in the change, as it was 87 degrees and NO precipitation the day of the rally.
3. McDaniel lost the race in Mississippi to Thad Cochran. Only a “few hundred” middle-aged and seniors actually attended the gathering of the losers.
4. With so few in attendance, it probably didn’t matter that Sarah Palin’s remarks were nonsensical and described as “scattershot.” Even a Palin supporter described the event this way:
“I´ll re-iterate my disappointments that Sarah´s speech was little more than a random collection of cliches. The only substance in her speech was praise for Tea Partiers sticking to their grassroots approach and not forming a political party. I wholeheartedly disagree with that, as my other posts point out. Sarah simply did not step up to the plate. “Reload” is just a catchy phrase unless you intend to point and shoot (politically). I like Sarah; I like most of the things she stands for; but she did not lead last night.”5. The funniest thing of all is that it appears security for the event was so tight that supporters were annoyed by the delays caused by those pesky security measures that no doubt infringed on their second amendment rights.
Palin concluded her remarks at the rally by saying that the loss should be a signal to her supporters that it is time to re-double their efforts.What a clever way to entice supporters to give more money, by losing. With that idea in mind, the organizers of the event invited the perfect speakers. “Refuse to lose, until your money is gone” should be the new slogan of the Tea Party Patriots.
"anyone that supports abortion CANNOT be a faithful Christians"
Supreme court 1973
With Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court voted overwhemingly to support legalized abortion in the United States 7 to 2. Who was in the Majority and who was in the Minority?
Warren E. Burger
William O. Douglas
William J. Brennan
The Majority Justices must have all been liberals, yes? Perhaps appointed by Democratic presidents? Wrong. Blackmun, who penned the Supreme Court’s final Majority opinion, was appointed by Republican President Richard Nixon. Also appointed by Nixon were Burgher and Powell. So far, three of the seven Justices in the Majority were appointed by a Republican President. But do not forget that Brennan and Stewart were appointed by Republican President Dwight Eisenhower. This means that five of the seven Majority Justices were appointed by Republican presidents (Douglas and Marshall were appointed by Democratic Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson, respectively). What’s more, take the two Democratic-appointed judges out of the Majority, and you are still left with all-Republican majority of the Court that legalizes abortion.
Only White (appointed by Democratic President John F. Kennedy) and Renquist (appointed by Nixon) opposed the Court’s decision to legalize abortion in the United States.
So what we see historically is that Roe v. Wade faced six Republican-appointed Justices, five of whom ruled in favor of Roe. Had only four of the six opposed protecting abortion under the Constitution, January 23, 1973 would not have inaugurated the legaliziation of abortion
Joe can't read a poll.
Bush low point 28% Bush at the end of his term 35%. Obama low point 42% (Rasmussen) Most other polls have the President at 45%.
Maybe we can cover it by cancelling the 4 billion in corporate welfare for the oil companies....your thoughts please!
Is that it dude?
Thanks for the confirmation, nobody cares what occurs between two "consenting" adults. except for the tea tards, who insist on every detail, sick perverts that they are.
Or could it be that most Americans believe that what occurs between two consenting adults is personal and irrelevant.
