The Tea Party | The National Rifle Association

NRA tea party

Checks and Balances

President Obama is a Marxist, and he fears guns and religion. He also fears…and is held in check…by the National Rifle Association and the Tea Party.

The Republican Party would not have been the opposition…that it is…without the Tea Party.

The National Rifle Association remains a force for good.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, the NRA spent $10 million.[18] In 2011, the organization refused an offer to discuss gun control with U.S. President Barack Obama. In response to the invitation, NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre said "Why should I or the N.R.A. go sit down with a group of people that have spent a lifetime trying to destroy the Second Amendment in the United States?" In his statement, LaPierre named Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder (both Democrats) as examples of the "people" he referred to.[19]

Imagine what the last two years would have been like without the influence of the Tea Party. The Tea Party boosted the clout of the Republican Party in the House. The Tea Party gave Republicans control of the House of Representatives. Control of the House of Representatives gave Republicans control of any Senate Legislation…that the Senate would try to get passed by the House.  The control of the House of Representatives blocked President Obama’s Marxist ideas from getting into legislation. Control of the House of Representatives made it possible to vote Holder in contempt of Congress.

I wish the Tea Party well… in the 2014 elections.

The National Rifle Association will have the backs of Conservatives…in the 2014 elections.
