Frustrated Tea Partier? Look across the pond to the UKIP for inspiration.

ukipIn 1776, we showed the British a few things about the concept of revolution against a tyrannical government.  In 2014, American Tea Partiers could learn a few things from the growing number of successes of the UK Independent Party (UKIP).

The UKIP is making international headlines for its growing number of successes against the country’s dominant Conservative and Labour parties.

What is this party all about?  Getting Britain out of the European Union and returning decision-making authority to the national government in London and local councils.  Protecting the national borders from illegal immigrants. Cutting taxes and abolishing expensive government mandates. Cutting foreign aid.  Teaching national pride in the schools, and rejecting politically-correct speech codes. Reforming social services to benefit legal residents who truly are in need. Letting supply and demand have more impact on the health care industry.  They are also into abolishing toll roads in the UK.   (There is also some rhetoric on their site about there being little difference between the UK’s two major parties. Wow.) 

UKIP leaders are getting the same kind of crap from the Ruling Class and radical left that American Tea Partiers are getting.  They’re getting attacked as racist — as Nazis.  Never mind the abundant supply of non-white spokespeople touting the UKIP platform. This party spends a lot more time talking about personal and economic freedom, as well as national pride, than they do about silly things like race.

It appears UKIP appears to have succeeded thanks to (1) education and organization of the frustrated masses, and (2) things getting so bad that even low-information voters have recognized it.

  1. It is not just the UK. Look at the rise of the Freedom Party in the Netherlands and the National Front in France. And in Norway, the Progress Party, which opposes the income tax, the welfare state, and big government is now a coalition partner in the present government.

    If the GOP establishment morons keep trying to steer the GOP left, particularly on things like amnesty for illegal aliens, they are going to wake up with a party like UKIP here in the US, and then it will be game over for the GOP.

  2. Frustrated Tea Partier?

    The first step is to admit you have a problem.

    The second step is to face reality.

    The third step is to ask for forgiveness.

    The fourth step is to come back in from the cold. Admitting you have a problem and asking for forgiveness will bring you peace and sanctification. Feel the loving arms of the GOP as they welcome you back home.

    Come home. Come home while the door is still open. Seek peace.

  3. Jimmy……I laughed so hard I blew coffee all over the desktop. thanks for spot on humor. When the whores of the GOP leadership do those things suggested, we won’t need a TEA Party.

    1. I fear if we remove the whores from government and politics our whole system will collapse.

      There does not seem to be much room for any parties other than the Dems and GOP.

      The Tea Party was like a “rabbit” in a marathon. It started out fast but could not keep the pace. I believe the GOP will be able to bring most of the Tea Partiers home to the GOP. Of course it will take some significant lies to bring them in but we all like to hear the lies even if we know that they are lies.

      As George Costanza said to Jerry, “It is not a lie if you believe it.”

      1. There was a time when many thought there was no room for other parties than the Democrats and Whigs, or earlier, for other parties than the Federalists and Anti-Federalists. Times change.

        In the UK, politics was once limited to the Conservative Party and Liberal Party. The Liberal Party imploded decades ago, and it appears that UKIP may sent the Conservative Party on the same journey.

        Here is an indicator that the GOP may be playing Russian roulette these days by allowing the establishment to run rampant over the base:

        What we need in North Carolina is a write-in anti-amnesty candidate against the undocumented Democrat Renee Ellmers. Lets take her scalp even if it means electing a Democrat. We need to send the establishment a message before it is too late.
