Let’s Talk About The Debt Ceiling

When discussing political issues one debate that is never ending is the debt ceiling. It is the driving force behind many political debates and elections. What is the debt ceiling exactly? Simply, put it is a limit set against what the government can borrow. What is the government borrowing money for? Typically, for the military, paying back debts to other countries and maintaining benefits for Americans such as food assistance. Those are just very small things the government must fund. Why is the debt ceiling such an issue for millions of American’s though? The amount of debt we carry in the country trickles all of the way down to the average American just like you and I.

Ultimately we will always be in a cycle of debt but it is how America handles it that really matters. It may not seem as if the national debt affects you personally but it does! From credit cards to home mortgages, the interest rates carried about by major institutions are affected by the national average of debt and in turn that affects your personal bottom line.

Our greatest concern about the debt ceiling is the ability to pay back other countries and old debts while still finding a way to sustain programs that help millions of people. Programs are not just affected by this. So is our military. When debt is high, it makes it hard to fund training and deployments properly. We need to deploy soldiers to keep this country safe but to often units are held back because of issues with debt in this country.

The tea party wants to change societies awareness of how the government ultimately handles your bottom line. While the debt ceiling can be a great way to leverage cash flow and continue covering great organizations, programs and much needed funds for social security there must be a way to marginalize our debt so that it stops hitting Americans’ wallets so hard. What can we do to decrease debt seems to be a common question among many on a daily basis. We need to find the answer to that question quickly so that the American people do not suffer at the hands of congress or the president.

It was once believed eliminating the debt ceiling all together would be beneficial to the country. While most would agree, many do not. We need to cap the ceiling to keep spending in this country under control. Since 1917 the issues of repaying others while keeping our military funded and organizations funded has been an issue; and will most likely be an issue until we can come together to find practical solutions.

Getting Started With Tea Party Politics

The tea party… A lot of people want to know what the tea party is and what the tea party represents. To start, the tea party is a non-partisan organization; They also base their politic beliefs on the foundations of the constitution.

More then that thought the tea party believes everyone is entitled to their own views and while no one organization will come together perfectly, they thrive off the clash of ideas and opinions. There are hundreds of organizations in America, the Muskogee being one of them. It is a great organization if you want your voice heard. Representing your ideas and believes is celebrated at this organization.

The next question people have is what does non-partisan really mean. Being non-partisan essentially means that you, yourself are not tied to one political organization or “political belief”  more specifically there is no specific affiliation to one political group. The tea party Muskogee has been making great strides in the political world, helping to redefine that the constitution is at the core of any political believe. The constitution seems to have been lost in the grand scheme of political competition.

What is a libertarian? A libertarian is an individual that holds liberty and freedom in the highest regard. One individual that represents this concept well is Ron Paul who fully backs the tea party and represents many republicans in the political world.

Another group that is represented in the tea party is the republican. Republicans have very literal views. Financial security for those who work hard for it, representation of the constitution and a limited government. Essentially the republican party has a belief that the American people should determine the day to day economic functions of The United States.

These three political “parties” make up the core of the tea party and that is again why this organization believes in the joining of citizens with common beliefs but firmly holds true that no two people will agree.

Now that the foundation of the tea party has been laid down the next thing to know is what are the primary goals of the tea party and the Muskogee? What is their primary political motivation?

One of the primary motivations is financial equality for those that work hard for their money and the fair representation of the constitution. Those are just two primary motivations. Let’s break that down. The Muskogee lean closer to a libertarian point of view, but will not turn away others with opposing political views. The Tea Party Muskogee pride themselves on having an open floor for anyone to bring their ideas and opinions to the table. The best way to do that is to have open meetings, or public forums. Joining an organization such as this may expand your horizons, helping you discover a new point of view or help you formulate your own political opinions. That is the goal of this organization, to help future leaders and citizens see what changes can be made to the world.
