Why the Tea Party and Why Now by Chet Dembeck
We are told the culture has changed
The fact is that in the past the United States had a solid moral and political consensus among the majority of its citizens. That's because most of its citizens believed and worshiped their own God, adhered to a moral code that was enforced by their peers -- not the state -- and they had a healthy skepticism about their elected officials.
You might be saying to yourself, what is he talking about; don't most Americans still have these core values? The answer is, yes. But today through marginalization the majority's influence and power has been neutralized.
Now, would be a good time for me to define exactly what I mean by the term marginalization. Marginalization is a method by which the political, academic and media elite join forces to override the moral and political consensus of the majority by using their power and positions to push their agendas, which are almost always the opposite of the will of American people. They do so by having the media embrace their policies and destroy their enemies. They do so by financing and promoting politicians who will make their policies law -- no matter how unpopular -- and they do so by using their political surrogates to control the appointment of judges who interpret the law, according to their view of the world.
This marginalization has fueled the birth of the Tea Party movement.
