Bilirakis, Stearns join the 'Tea Party Caucus'

The congressional Tea Party Caucus was announced today and two Florida lawmakers are among the group: Reps. Gus Bilirakis, R-Palm Harbor, and Cliff Stearns, R-Ocala. The caucus is led by Michele Bachmann, R-Minn.

"We are not the mouthpiece of the tea party. We are not taking the tea party and controlling it from Washington, D.C.," Bachmann said at a news conference following the meeting. But she said it would be a "receptacle" for tea party activists' views and opinions.

I think about joining the Tea Party quite a bit. I am a Conservative Puerto Rican, born and raised in the USA and proud of it. When I made Jesus my Saviour, some Anti American uncles hired a thug to assault me. At an earlier stage in my life, my political views were more liberal, although I was never Anti American and never will be. Along the way, I realized that the people who were really trying to make me fail were the very same liberals who claim that they are out to help Hispanics, and they really are not - they are out to keep their non-profits and interests in business. Because I disagree with some Anti American uncles, I have received the whistleblower treatment, and I have lived a Gulag Archipelago existence here in the US because my uncles do not want me to BE AMERICAN. When Obama won, I knew that Anti Americans were "officially" in the White House. With all my respect to the media, we are so distracted, that NO ONE discusses that the Juarez Mexico kind of VIOLENCE is not just in Juarez. As a whistleblower, I have experienced it in Florida, where MANY TERRORIST GANGS have landed and set up territories. The Clearwater Police, by the way, appears to operate Juarez style, and when MANY PEOPLE in the community have made several reports related to Juarez kind of violence, the Clearwater Police takes the side of the thug. A thug tried to run me off the road. The thug had a criminal record, and did not even have auto insurance. The Clearwater Police covered up with the thug, and did not even suspend this individual's license, so this violent individual is probably still out there probably driving under the influence of crack and with expired auto insurance.

We cannot live in fear, yet we need to be aware of the Juarez Factor.

Puerto Rico is a microcosm of what is already happening here. Around the 50's Gov. L.M. Marin crippled many Puerto Ricans, who fell for the entitlement programs. Many Puerto Ricans believe that the entitlement programs are doing them a favor, when in fact, they are being crippled.

Puerto Rico is in such hopeless shape, lamentably, that now the authorities have had to take measures to try to tackle the Puerto Rican birth certificates are on the Black Market.

The Juarez Factor is linked to the Black Market factor as well. In fact, I believe that it is not just Puerto Rican birth certificates that are vulnerable, but ALL AMERICAN BIRTH CERTIFICATES.
