Americans attending Tea Parties in protest of runaway Government spending are desperately searching for John Galt, but as it turns out, it seems this time John Galt has been hiding among the taxpayers.
Though many of those attending the Tea Parties are trying to pigeon-hole their frustrations by aligning themselves with a group or a certain political party, it stands to reason they do this out of habit thinking that John Galt is to be found in some politician or one of his/her political vehicles.
Most of those attending the Tea Parties need no help from either political party in sending their message to Washington, because the message is for both political parties. This much the tax payer has learned, no matter how many opportunistic politicians try to grasp hold of the momentum behind "We the People".
The Tea Parties are Americans who are voicing outrage of having lost power and control over a government that has grown too big, and that has begun to turn on its own citizens with a wrath that will destroy the individual power of each citizen by those who would "take care of them". Those who wish to be "taken care of"will one day no longer have the taxpayers to prop them up once they have managed to subjugate the regular taxpayers desire and motivation to make money for them.
Who is threatened by the Tea Party Movement? Corrupt politicians that flood both parties with their lobbyist friends in tow; Wall Street whose greed continues to bleed consumers with its corrupt business practices;and those who stand to gain political power from a nationalization of every industry that once defined the dreams of the American citizen.
Will the Tea Parties be successful in their goals? Hopefully so. If enough citizens join in protest then John Galt steps forward. If the media is able to dissuade the public in general, then John Galt goes back into hiding until Americans have had enough.
"The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go
outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens,
nature and the Divine. Because only then does one feel that all is as it
should be and that the Divine wishes to see people happy, amidst the
simple beauty of nature."
Edna St. Vincent Millay
My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends—
It gives a lovely light!
