I find it so interesting that a simple statement about what the tea party stands for brings on immediate "Nuh uhs." It is disappointing that we cannot even be united on this one thing without attacking other tea party members.
Libertarians tend to think the Constitution doesn't grant the federal government the right to handle immigration. I believe the naturalization clause of Article 1, Section 8 states that very thing. You don't agree with me. That's okay. But you don't get to say I'm wrong. I don't tell you are wrong. I just don't agree with you. You are bright people with a love for the same nation I have a deep love for. You love the Constitution as much as I do, and for that I respect you greatly. However, we don't agree on many aspects of it.
- The divinely inspired U.S. Constitution and its purposes.
- The true history of the United States of America instead of the revisionist slop being peddled to our schoolchildren.
- The superiority of a Republic form of government over socialism/fascism/communism.
- The power and purposes of prayer, both as families and as individuals.
- The power in working together as families, neighborhoods, communities and nations.
- The power in good literature.
- The power of teaching by example our morals and values, in other words, teaching and learning goodness within the family, neighborhood, community and nation.
