When George W. Bush went to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, he said, "We will rebuild New Orleans no matter how long it takes!" Isn't that a socialist statement? Wasn't he suggesting that a redistribution of wealth take place? Where in the U.S. Constitution does it give the president the power to respond to a natural disaster? If a power is not explicitly given to the federal government then that power is left to the states. Long live the X Amendment!

Let's say a major oil reserve is found off of the Virginia coast. An oil company taps into it and then signs a long term oil contract to sell that oil to China. Heaven Forbid! After mentioning this possibility to the Tea Partier, he declared that the state should order the company to sell it to the state's consumers at a discount. I told the Tea-Partier that Glenn Beck would describe this as Communism, Fascism or Collectivism! Who is this Tea-Partier to tell a private company that used its own risk capital on how to run its very own business? Can't we all agree that Tea-Partiers who behave like so are phony conservatives?

I've met many Tea Party people who do not blame BP for the mess caused in the Golfo de Mexico, expected, and even demanded that the federal government clean up the mess caused by that foreign company. These Tea-Partiers say that since the federal government regulated BP and gave BP a license to drill then the lease-holder is responsible. But let's take a closer look. An automobile driver gets a state government driver's license, and obtains an automobile state inspection sticker and a certificate of registration. It looks like the state government has given this automobile its seal of approval forever and ever to do what automobiles do. (or until the registration and license expires)
When Tea Partiers whined that Obama had not done enough to fix the BP oil disaster, then they should rightly be called statists! AND YES, the lease stipulated that all damages be paid for by BP. It's time for the tread to hit the pavement.
I am a strict Constitutionalist! Many Tea-Party people say they are too. If a power is not explicitly given to the federal government, then it's a power left to the states. Many Tea Party people say Obama did not do enough to fix the BP oil disaster. I say, he did too much! Can someone point out to me where in the U.S. Constitution that the federal government is responsible for cleaning up oil spills? The U.S. Constitution clearly says oil disaster is for the states to deal with. The federal government has no responsibility or power granted by the aforementioned constitution to get involved at all.
