Happy New Year. Since January 1, 2008, long before Rick Santelli’s rant from the floor of CBOE, the New Boston Tea Party engaged the public with their first blog entry. The question they posed then and still do is, is a “Revolution” possible? The question has been answered in the affirmative by Donald J. Trump and We the People of America.
Marx’s philosophy was such that he thought it best that socialism prevail over capitalism; that is the profits of labor be distributed by the state to the people rather than kept by the capitalists. Well today we find ourselves in a similar position, but the profits are no longer being kept by the capitalists, sure some are, but it is the government (local, state, federal) that is picking the pockets of the middle class via a burdensome tax system (fees, regulations, excise) and distributing the profits to the government employee and society’s loser. This has to stop. And stop it will under the Trump administration.
We are entering a new phase in 2017, Republicans control Congress. Now is the time for them to produce. The Tea Party is responsible for them taking power; for we made it plain and clear that the past way of doing business, compromising our principles, will no longer be tolerated. They better take note.
