Over the past couple of days a small but potentially highly influential campaign within the Tea Party Movement began to take shape centered around the fearmongering and scare tactics being employed by Democrats, a complicit media, and the White House itself.
Calling out the lies and distortions over the debate on raising the debt ceiling, Tea Party folks, started to gather around aFacebook page as well as a statement page on The Minority Report Blog showing their anger, disgust and disbelief at the nonsense coming out of Washington DC by uploading pictures featuring homemade signs saying “We Know” and other slogans showing solidarity in the message that the August 2, 2011 date given by this administration is not only arbitrary but the apocalyptic language and crisis is 100% manufactured.
This is the “We Know” statement:
TARP. The Auto Bailout. The Omnibus. The Stimulus. Financial Reform. Obamacare.
We now know that the powers in Washington do not possess any secret knowledge. We know that emergencies will continue to present themselves whenever the government wants to spend more of our money. The problem is that the federal government spends too much, and not that they don’t tax enough. We know.
There is no new emergency regarding the debt ceiling. We will not let you raise it. $14 trillion is high enough.
August 2nd is an arbitrary deadline for a manufactured crisis. We will not be fooled again.
