I thought the Branson Tea Party Patriot HQ had a policy not to endorse candidates, but rather educate about candidates who support the Constitution. Well, Tera Sukman, the head of the Branson Tea Party Patriot HQ has been outed, hypocritical of her Tea Party’s policy on candidate endorsements. Ironically, Sukman isn’t voting for the presidential candidate who inspired the founding of the Tea Party, and is the only candidate who understands and follows the Constitution.
Sukman posted on her Facebook page:
If you want your Candidate for President to be Santorum, Newt or Romney be at Caucus Saturday March 17 at Forsyth high school GYM. A local 501c4 non Profit will be there Supporting Ron Paul. I AM NOT FOR RON PAUL. Your Vote has Consequences as well as not participating. Please be there.
If you want to know just how full of crap Tera Sukman is when it comes to following and supporting the Constitution, it is in this Facebook posting from last night. While she clearly doesn’t support and endorse a candidate, she definitely isn’t supporting the only Constitutional candidate in the Republican field.
She is encouraging Mitt Romney supporters to come out and support Mitt Romney. Why would someone who claims to love the Constitution so much, that she’s willing to put on lots of make up and a tight costume and go onstage promoting her love of the Constitution encourage anyone to vote for Mitt Romney?
After all Romney’s record doesn’t support the Second Amendment. Romney supported numerous gun control acts including the Brady Bill and an semi-automatic weapons ban. As well, Romney loves the mandate forcing people to purchase healthcare, and he has been a tax and spend liberal posing as a Republican in Massachusetts. I thought the meaning of TEA meant Taxed Enough Already. Guess you haven’t looked at the truth behind Romney’s record. Romney grew government in Massachusetts and raised all sorts of fees.
Then there is Newt, who was part of the Heritage Foundation’s 1994 drafting of the alternative to Hillarycare that soon became Romneycare which soon become Obamacare. Yes, it was Newt and the Republicans who drafted the idea of the federal mandate which ignores the Constitution and forces Americans to engage in commerce. Tera loves her freedom so much that she’s willing to encourage people to vote for Newt and his belief in the federal mandate that takes away your liberty.
Then there is big government Rick Santorum. Now I probably should remind you that Tera’s husband takes in lots of money from those socialist healthcare programs like Medicaid and Medicare at his Taney County health clinic. Well Santorum was the poster boy for the unconstitutional expansion of the socialist healthcare program known as Medicare–a program the Sukman family benefits from. Estimates show this added $16 trillion to the unfunded liabilities of the United States and will lead to higher taxes.
Here’s Ron Paul, the one man that even Mitt Romney looked to during a debate for Constitutional wisdom, and what are Sukman’s words? “I AM NOT FOR RON PAUL.”
Like I said, I thought the purpose of the Tea Party Patriot HQ in Branson was to promote Constitutional candidates–not work against them. Tera’s not for limited government. She like most Americans support big government that benefits her and her family.
