Fox News put together a panel of small business owners who also affiliate themselves with the Tea Party, one of which is a Cuban man who immigrated to this country 50 years ago to get away from socialism. While all of them took offense at being labeled as terrorists, the man from Cuba says he’s seen this playbook before and he never thought he would see freedom in jeopardy here in America:

    Yes, Washington has lost touch with reality and with the U.S. Constitution!
    And, the “Super Congress” is unconstitutional! Article I, Section 1.
    “All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”
    As Judge Andrew Napolitano stated, “Emphasis on ALL” — It [U.S. Constitution] doesn’t say SOME and it doesn’t say it can be given away.”

      Disagree. All legislative power includes the power to make their own rules of operation, including all “committees.”

        Within the restrictions laid out in the Constitution, which was written to restrict the power of the centralized government, which has been ignored and usurped by the political class in washington dc

          Right, but where is the Constitutoinal restriction on the legislature forming committees of legislators?

    “The” Tea Party and “Tea Party Members,” eh? And where is “The” Tea Party, and who is its elected leader?

        I like that part, but we need to get rid of the name. Tell the media “the” Tea Party has been disbanded. They gotta label it, before they attack it. I’d enjoy their frustration.

      Elected Leaders:
      Authors of the US Constitution and Bill of Rights.

      And where is “The” Tea Party:
      On the Internet, TV, Radio, News, at the beaches, parks, dinner tables, restaurants, family gatherings in every city and state in America.

      But most of all… “The” Tea Party is beating in the hearts of every man, women and child who love their freedom and ready to restore it.

      If you have not found “The” Tea Party yet, I hope you will Google your area Tea Party by 2012, so you can join.

    Business owners and USA Patriots speak up loudly. Push back against the Obama boot on your neck. Speak up everyday, and as far as Von Hollen goes, he is a Chevy Chase Progressive with little business experience other than cashing his Government check.

    The left, in it’s demonic fevor, has worked hard and tireless to bring down America.
    The tea party is late to the game, but hopefully it will emerge loud, clear and in vast numbers come November.

    I just paid $ 23.86 for an iPhone and my girlfriend loves her Dell laptop that we got for $ 38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 42 inch LED TV to my boss for $ 665 which only cost me $ 62,81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, GrabPenny.com

    Did anyone watch O’Reilly last night? He actually said that The Tea Party really didn’t affect the debt ceiling debate. It was really the American people. The “folks”.

    Bill is so freaking out of touch it’s pathetic. He’s so busy “fighting for the folks” that he has no idea who the folks are. The Tea Party are the American people.

    This video reminded me of all the dozens and hundreds of videos I’ve watched in the last couple of years about what’s happening to this country. Every once in awhile there is an elderly immigrant featured. From Russia, or former Iron Curtain country, or some other place they escaped from and came here to be free. It breaks the heart to hear them talk about what they’ve seen this country become. And it enrages the soul to know that too many people just like them don’t see it and vote in the very politicians that are doing the most harm to the dream they came here for.

      I’m not defending him, but his argument was that the Tea Party affiliated people in Congress didn’t make a difference. Not true, but he is right that the American people made a difference. Listen to what Rush said when he said how proud he was of us all this last week. Not everyone who has called and made noise about this situation was a tea partier.

        Bill has fallen for the narrative that the Tea Party are “right wing”. And that, for Bill O’Reilly, is the worst thing you can be. You see, Bill O’Reilly is considered a conservative. He’s the reason the meme that Fox News is right wing even got started. But he’s never been a conservative. Bill O’Reilly is a pro-life Catholic who hates child molesters. That’s it. Other than that, he’s a raging liberal statist.

        But he was lumped in with Rush, Hannity, and later Mark Levin. It killed Bill that Sean Hannity was a raging, runaway, success on the radio while he wasn’t. O’Reilly claimed he gave up his radio show voluntarily. That’s bull. Bill got cancelled off the radio and that’s why he hates Rush, Sean, and Mark.

        That’s why he has a blind spot with the Tea Party.

      I have good friends from Chech and Romainia (spelling), they expected this to happen. They know more about America and the risk of lost freedom that any of us do. They live extreme crualty and oppression and are intiatelt aquainted with how it begins, how it works, and how it ends. None of it is good AT ALL!

      I was taken aback too when o’reilly didn’t give credit to tea party and instead to the ‘folks’. Knowingly or unknowingly every person in this country falls in either the tea party or tax party category. One doesn’t have to be a card carrying member of the tea party to have the beliefs.

    Those who believe in the Constitution and vote for politicians who respect it are trying to SAVE this country, not destroy it. Those on the left are purposely attempting to destroy democracy and if we are going to call anyone “terrorists” the left has certainly earned that title.

    The Leftists entire position is built on the same thoroughly 18th century intellectually impoverished Social movement that spawned the Paris Commune and continually furthered by the British Fabian Society and other “elitist” Utopian cancerous and thoroughly treasonous groups within Anglo-American Establishment. It is sad that those Republicans are such frauds and the majority should be tried for treason and Jailed. This corruption has been on-going since Woodrow Wilson and especially since the Socialist FDR. Good luck America… McCarthy was right!

    My Stepfather and his family are from Cuba. My 80+ year old grandmother weeps for America, and all of us, when she sees what is happening. I pray we can show her we are making progress to restore America before she leaves us. I can not imagine witnessing ‘twice’ the destruction of my family, friends, life and country, and fearing what will happen to my children and grandchildren.

    I have business in Vietnam, so Im here for most of the year. I also get choked up about all that is happening. But I’m a 33 yr old American who is wide awake. I don’t come here to impose my will on others, and am more inspired everyday to stop others from imposing their will on my country and family.

    I helped to organize the first Tea Party Rally in my city. I will be winding things here down so i can come home and help however I can.

    FYI:
    If it comforts anyone to know… even people here want us to take back our country and think our system/Washington is corrupt. And thats saying something!

    Most of us have had ancestors that came here to escape exactly what this congress has just done to us. The tea partiers are citizens that see through the lies being proferred, to try and fool us into thinking that it’s for the general well being. If this is being mistaken for hatred of other every day American’s, it is not. It is hatred for what is being used to recast the goals and purposes of our republic, from those who would deem themselves our betters, into some completely other thing. As our freedoms and rights are eroded, we find ouselves in an unthinkable position, of having to tell our children that they, for the first time, will not be able to improve the lots of themselves and others around the world, and that it is due to being hobbled by our own so called leaders.

    My neighbor came from communist Poland, and she says this is scary the way dear leader and his sycophants are tearing down this country. I have heard more and more folks from communist or socialist countries trying to warn Americans of the same road dear leader is taking us. I just hope people wake up soon- but then again, they walk around in their che t shirts thinking they’re all hip and cool, without a clue.

    It is rather simple, the bigger governemnt (Fedzilla) gets the less freedoms American’s will have. It’s all about power and control over us “We The People”. ‘Social Justice’ and ‘Redistribution of the Wealth’ is their plan to “Fundamentally Transform America”, they have told us so many times. Have a problem? Government claims it can fix all our problems but it neglects to tell us that it will cost all of us our freedoms. Reagan “Governemnt is NOT The Solution to our Problem, Government IS THE PROBLEM”. God bless the best president in my life time R.W.R. Educate everyone you know to the truth, it’s our only hope.

    If you ever watched, listened to, and or read, the Nazi Propaganda Ministers in Nazi Germany, in the 1930’s, you would see the exact same tactics and techniques that MSNBC news and opinion anchors, like chris mathews, ed schultz, etc, and others like bill maher, and the rest of the radical extremist Obama propagandist Ministers in the media and hollywood, as well as in Congress, spew their hatred, and disinformation, false accusations and insinuations.. ie; propagandist lies.. thus creating a climate of fear and heightened emotions.. as it was very same thing that was used against the Jews, and other so called undesireable elements.. political party rivals, and so on.. and we all know how that ended up.. don’t we.. as this is a Warning to all who ignores the past.. and how it relates to what it is happening in the present..!!

    These people are the enemy of Freedom, Liberty, Equal Justice, America, and the US Constitution, and consider nothing off limits as targets in their determination to take down America and the US Constitution and all Patriotic Americans, who stand and fight for these Free and Democratic Principles and Values, and all people who desire to live, and be Free, from Tyranny and Oppression..

    Thank you for publishing this. It was enlightening and reflected the thoughts of many of us. The comments of the gentleman born in Cuba were especially poignant. The “super panel’ is unconstitutional because it can make rulings without congressional approval. Calcoolidge you might really read the intent of the panels and cross reference that with the responsibility and authority of congress as defined in the Constitution.

    just a thought…ever wonder what the ACLU really believes….
    “I seek social ownership of property, the abolition of the properties class, and sole control of those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal.” — Roger Baldwin, leftist, anarchist, and Communist, was born in Wellesley MA and co-founded the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
    “The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”
    — Norman Thomas, Socialist Party Presidential Candidate in 1940, 1944 and 1948, co-founder of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
    “We can’t expect the American people to jump from capitalism to communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have communism.” — Nikita Kruschev, former Soviet Premier/dictator.
