Montana TEA Partiers have focused on separating Montana from the federal government, and nullifying federal laws.
If they are going to secede from the union, creating their own country, they might as well create their own language too. Enter Teabonics: A new dialect of the English language created by sign wielders at Tea Party protests. Some call it ‘creative spelling and poor grammar,’ others call it essential for communicating with a certain segment of Republicans. Either way, GOP candidate for governor Ken Miller has it down.
Here’s a sample from an email that’s been going around from Miller to a constituent in the new fledgling tongue:
There are several areas that need’s[sic] to be clarified in our state constitution, but the balanced budget amendment should not be weakened. It still allows for debt in several forms such as building programs. The “healthy environment” clause needs to be clarified because it is currently being used to stop good clean natural resource projects.
The Opportunity Scholarships[sic] was something I tried to get through as a State Senator. Basically it funds the state protion[sic] of an in state[sic] higher education student through a scholarship that the parents and students would be able to determine where and what they wanted it spent on.[wow]
OPI is bloated, as is[sic] administrations in nearly every public school.
We need to be doing much more drilling, mining and timber production. We are rich in natural resource[sic] and we need to utilize all of them.
I want to see at a minimum charter schools and tax credits for private and home schools.
No I don’t think students should be allowed guns at public schools.
I believe a marriage should be between one man and one women.
I have been a small business owner all my adult life and it[sic] is the foundation of our economy but big business is very important as well and we need to be competitive with all levels of business expenses. We should have zero business equipment taxes and we should have one of the lowest workers[sic] compensation rates.
Your issues are many and complex. If I didn’t answer them in enough detail, please call me on my cell phone so that we can discuss them fully.
Thank you for contacting me.
