not your average tea party

I’m a big fan of politics.

Rephrase: I’m a big fan of a certain kind of politics.

Our family’s always been involved in politics. My uncle was the undersecretary of agriculture under Bush 2. My cousin ran the Bush 2 campaign for the whole midwest. (Whether or not Bush 2 was worth it is up for grabs.)

My love of politics started at any early age. I worked my first campaign at age 4. If a little girl in pigtails won’t make you vote for Jack Kemp, I don’t know what will.

I’m the kind of conservative who refuses to be okay with a government that allows the death of children, who’s annoyed that all my paychecks from January to April go to fund government nonsense, who thinks the mindset behind my generation’s camp-out on Wall Street is reprehensible.

So naturally I went to a St. Louis Tea Party meeting last week. tea party

I can’t say I agree with every single one of its premises, and I can’t say I’m going to start waving Ron Paul banners at any point in my life, but I could behind the idea of shutting down the Department of Education, not to mention beefing up the military, reducing taxes and weaning people off of welfare.

I don’t know yet who I’m voting for. I have a lot of reading to do. But heck if getting together with people and discussing the issues isn’t a good place to start.

  1. Good post. I encourage you to study money. What it is. How it is created. Who controls it’s supply. Be careful though. This undertaking may lead you to start waving Ron Paul flags. You are duly warned.
