media), I hadn't really heard of the new Coffee Party movement which was to have its big events
yesterday, March 13 2010, after doing some research on the Coffee Party I have developed some opinions on them. First the Coffee Party is intended to be the antithesis to the Tea Party
movement, it's based on their underlying principle that the government is not the enemy of the
people, but the expression of our collective will, and that we must participate in the democratic
process in order to address the challenges we face as Americans.
On that principle, I want to make an argument based on a mythical creature from Norse mythology, Fenrir, I view big government like the mythical Fenrir if allowed it will cause great
trouble, it will take, eat, and destroy whatever it can. If you don't chain it down and restrain it, it
will do whatever it want's using whatever logic that makes since to it. While those in the Coffee
Party movement may view big government as a good thing and may be well meaning, history has shown that big governments have a poor history of being good, from Nazi Germany to Soviet Russia and Communist China a country with a big government with the power will abuse the people. And the country itself needs not be large, Fidel Castro in Cuba, Pol Pot's Cambodia, and Hugo Chávez in Venezuela, has shown that when the government becomes too large it will abuse the people. History has shown when the government isn't restrained like the mythical Fenrir by something like our constitution it will eventually abuse the people.
And lastly I want to discuss something else the Coffee Party has said, "We the People demand:
Reason and civility in public affairs; A government accountable to the People; Liberty & Justice
for All." Note that I have put the word civility in bold in the last ten years I have come up with an idea of False Civility. What is this? False Civility is when you demand "Civility" in a political
debate or discussion, but when it comes to the other side, specifically progressives, they scream
or complain about you being uncompromising on the subject. Personally I believe false civility is
the root of our current problems, I'm not saying one shouldn't be civil just not to give in to
someone just because they won't. Consider taxes, despite how often it is sown and proven that
you get more money with lower taxes, by letting the people have "THEIR MONEY," you will not only get more tax dollars but the economy will be in the best health. Every time the issue comes up the progressives claim that raising taxes will improve the economy and that conservatives just want to give tax cuts to the rich. Common question for those on the left, and I would like to hear from others on this "Have you ever gotten a Paying job from a poor person?" and I don't want to hear any answers like "sure, I was hired by the government" the government doesn't count! The government represents everyone, from Bill Gates to the Tiny Tims of America.
P.S. And finally in case others haven’t seen it I have included something from FoxNews on the Coffee Party below.
