THIS IS HOW THE CASE IS MADE
You can’t just complain about the news and direction of the country, you have to make the case to the American people that there is another way, constitutional republicanism, or as Mark Levin like to say, embracing the constitution in order to save the constitution.
There is an answer, there is a way forward out of the mess, and the answer is you, your family and neighbors, your colleagues at work and anyone else that you can influence.
When the political situation becomes that desperate, people will look for answers, and a few good people within the conservative movement have them, they have something to point to that the Left doesn’t, a return to constitutionalism.
EXCLUSIVE — MIKE LEE LAYS OUT ROAD FORWARD FOR TEA PARTY IN IOWA
In a speech Saturday evening to the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition at the group’s 13th annual fall banquet in Des Moines, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) argued that now is the time for the Tea Party movement to take its next steps, take control of American government, and frame America’s future with a focus on conservative and liberty-minded principles.
Lee compared the movement’s next stages to those of the American revolution, noting how the earliest stages of revolution began in Boston with the Boston Tea Party, where a band of protesters dumped British tea in the Boston Harbor as a sign of disapproval of the high taxes the British had levied on them. That eventually turned into the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia after Americans fought and won their independence from the British.
“In order to chart our course forward, join me on a journey back,” Lee said in the speech, according to an advance copy provided to Breitbart News. “Back to a time when the people of this continent were just as frustrated with their oppressive government as all of us here tonight are with the Federal government today.”
Lee noted that in 1773, “a group of Americans had had it with the King George establishment which was too big, too expensive and too intrusive in their lives.”
“What would become known as the Boston Tea Party became a clarion cry against the kind of government the colonists did not want,” Lee said. “It turned out to be a pretty important party and a very big deal. But had they stopped at just protesting against the kind of government they didn’t want the Boston Tea Party would not have been even a footnote in history. It would have been just one more vain protest against an oppressive federal establishment.”
