A Dream that Someday the Media and Progressive Political Elites will Lay Down Their Racist-Tinted Glasses

I first met David Saucedo last October in Waco, Texas. I was impressed. He was a young Christian construction worker who spent his free time counseling inner city youth. After tough days of framing and pouring concrete, he went door to door pounding into these kids that if they got an education and worked hard enough, anything was possible.
This is America.
David Saucedo is also a heck of a rapper. His rapper moniker is Politik. The kids dig his music.
I was happy for him when the Tea Party Express decided to feature him on their Tea Party Express: Just Vote Them Out Tour.
Oh by the way, David Saucedo is of Hispanic background. His skin is brown. According to the progressive elitist and mainstream media mantra, Dave doesn’t exist.
He doesn’t exist because they profess that the Tea Party Movement is only made up of white guys and angry racist extremists.
Is there anger in the Tea Party movement? You betcha! People are pissed because every time they call for limited government, lower taxes, fiscal responsibility and integrity in leadership: they are called racists.
The fact is, too many people are making too much money by playing the race card. It is in the universities. It is in the media. It is in our government.
These people depend on division to validate their professions. The dirty little secret is that the vast majority of Americans really like each other. Left to our own devices Americans of differing ethnic backgrounds play together, work together, dance together, fight together and even sleep together. When we love each other enough we get married and make beautiful children together.
If that secret were to ever get out, the Left would be lost.
Maybe in the near future, the ones that have listened to the meme and promoted the vitriol generated by the left about the tea-partiers will STOP, LOOK and LISTEN to what the teaparty actually means.
“The liberties of our country, the freedoms of our civil Constitution are worth defending at all hazards; it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood. It will bring a mark of everlasting infamy on the present generation – enlightened as it is – if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of designing men.”
