The Tea party Movement is quite possibly one of the most significant political movements in the history of the Republican Party and the United States. The Tea Party Movement swept to power, almost faster than any political movement has ever done so, by championing two core values.
The first core value was to provide a check and balance to the World financial system. After the bail-outs of ’08-09, identified Prophetically by many Tea Party Movement Leaders, the group noticed a ‘moral hazard’ of ongoing bail-outs. If powerful corporate interests could remain unchecked by the United States Government, an entity that was supposed to check their power, then the United States Government would perpetually cede power to decisions made by private sector leaders, in particular the banking sectors.
The second core value was to audit the Federal Reserve. If there is one institution that is representative of unchecked power, it is the United States Federal Reserve with the power to issue currency and set the Prime Interest Rate of Nations.
Early Tea Party Champions, such as Ron Paul, built explosive political movements around these ideas.
The Tea Party Movement is currently in a state of decline. On one hand, the Movement has become more pragmatic and less radical in their solutions as many members of Congress have diluted their stance on the Federal Reserve. No longer does the movement call to audit or end the Federal Reserve, replaced by more moderate positions of the Party.
A core reason as to why the Tea Party Movement has not succeeded yet, is that its mostly a politics of negation. The Tea Party has yet to put forth a proposal to Renovate the world’s financial and economic institutions that they seek to abolish. That’s OK because political movements mature over time.
Accordingly, The Tea Party Movement has now ceded significant power to an identity-based movement within the Republican Party. On any given Sunday in The White House, which the Tea Party elected in Donald J. Trump, factions from Moderate Democrats, Bush-era Republicans, and a Hard Right battle against a Tea Party Movement that is seeing its power wane. Only one Representative, new Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, retains significant influence within an administration, which other than the President and a few advisors, has lost sight of core Tea Party values.
The Tea Party Movement is the political entity most prepared to weather the coming storm of the post pandemic financial crisis. Not only have they prophetically identified that bail-outs would become commonplace, eroding the morality of free market capitalism, but they also identified the growing threat of radical socialism. This threat of socialism is strengthened by Chinese interests abroad and domestically, and represents the very fracture, both geo-politically and internal to the Republican Party, of its base.
Most do not realize that the ‘hard-right’ of identity politics will likely evolve into a new ideological movement that includes elements of socialism during a protracted economic crisis. ‘To a T,’ this would be history repeating itself in the mold of The National Workers’ (NAZI) Party.
The Tea Party Movement represents not only the moderate Republican position during a time of financial crisis, but it is also the only political movement capable of restoring public trust in International Institutions. Many in Washington desperately hope that the Tea Party not only can return to its roots in calling for significant reform in International Finance, but it can build upon a politics of negation into an agenda that offers solutions for Renovating the World’s economic and financial system. The values of the Tea Party, economic fairness, property rights, and prosperity are the perfect foundation for an American Revolution for the World.
