The Tea Party Dissenters Vs. President Obama Loyalists
Written by Bee Quiet
The growing tension between the GOP and the Democratic Party is beginning to reach a summit, and what is most disturbing is the brewing clash between Republican supporters as embodied by the Tea Party Dissenter's Movement and the President Obama Loyalists. What is most sad about this budding phenomenon is that the issues causing so much controversy (both stimulus packages, the Obama budget, and the President's desire for international respect) are being reacted to without most Americans even understanding the proverbial "Method to Obama's Madness! There is a very specific root to President Obama's philosophical approach towards American economic development that many in the media and the public are missing; and unfortunately if the hostility continues to grow the country will 'shoot it's own self in the foot." In this short blog I will attempt to shed some light on the overarching ideas that I believe President Obama appears to be investing our government in; which if not understood by the Tea Party Dissenter's, could grossly affect his plan.
Our President understood upon setting off for the office of President of the United States that former President George Bush had egregiously sank our government inside a ditch. International arrogance, which affected American relations abroad, massive spending that shot out of control with an 'off course war' in Iraq, and a No Child Left Behind policy responsible for exacerbating already damaged relations between teachers and administrators left our country in 'critical condition.' The Obama philosophy designed to 'jump start' the American vehicle left abandoned on the road of history was not only the boldest plan of any President in the last three Administrations, but it is the only plan with the power to move our country well into the 21st Century as a continued superpower. The stimulus injection Obama pushed into the American economy 'for the people' was the match to former President Bush's 'business stimulus (both representative of the GOP and Democratic ideologies indicative of their parties). This was necessary in our country as the people were feeling the squeeze created by the Bush Administration failures, but philosophically Obama is counting on the people to step up and change some of the behaviors that allowed the issues in our country to get out of control in the first place; our people tend to live above their means as the government did.
The Obama stimulus, in collaboration with the budget, are intended to work like the jump starting of a car in that once the core of the American people are back in the mix of working (building roads and bridges, volunteering with stipends, going back to school, and getting more healthy) business will eventually step back up to the plate and our country will begin to drive again. It's a philosophical conviction that our President is invested in, and it partly relies on the American people to be optimistic and supportive of the process. What the Tea Party Dissenters are doing is counterproductive to the Obama plan, which as a result of the sensationalism and unpatriotic reactions can stand in the way of our President's plan for American growth. This is absolutely unfair to the children of our nations future, because many adults are behaving link spoiled kids angry because they didn't get their way. Just imagine a healthier American populace that begins to not only live within their means, but also invests more within the education system, green economy, and health care; we would begin to see the dividends and returns that come with a higher quality thinking. This is the essence of the Obama philosophy. If we as populace (all of us; GOP and Democrats, young and old, black and white, Tea Party Dissenters and President Obama Loyalists) begin to better understand what our President is attempting we may land on a star as a country as he shoots for the moon.
We as American's must play our part more effectively. Rhetoric belchers like Sean Hannity, Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Joe the Plummer, Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich are pushing the GOP and it's supporters (Tea Party Dissenters) down the wrong path. Why not give our President the benefit of the doubt for at least the entirety of his first term? The argument being made against this is egregious and borderline treacherous.
