I know that originally the TP (the actual grassroots movement) were painted as ignorant racists etc... but now the actual candidates and the spokespersons seem to actually be those things (now the media doesn't say squat, funny huh?). Who are the candidates you are currently supporting and plan to vote for, if that's too personal... understood. I'm just wondering how many people are voting TP simply because they are TP.
“We’re asking, Father, for two things,” he said. “We’re asking, Father, that you would expose them, set division amongst them, set them one against another, bring confusion and fear into their camp, into their thinking, for the purpose of pulling them down, for casting them down out of their high offices and reducing them, Lord, to having no power in this state.” “So, Lord, that you might raise up and seek the righteous in the positions of power that this state might once more be a state that honors you in all that it does,” Nicholson concluded.

Republicans are almost good, according to liberal progressives who want bigger government, more government oversight, and more government control.
Tea Party is for smaller government, personal responsibility, individuality.
Establishment republicans are not too different from establishment democrats anymore.

"Government is like a prostate exam. Painful, irritating, but sometimes necessary."
Your admission that government is sometimes necessary is a fine starting point. I shall take the ball
and run with it. Let's agree that government should level the playing field.
In the measure of power vs. weakness, the government serves as the referee.
Let's agree, Mr. Rabbit, that the weak deserve protection from the strong.
If the strong are virtuous and altruistic then I am wasting my time.
Let me ask you, Mr. Rabbit, what is the value of altruism in the culture we share?

It's a sad state of affairs when Republicans like Abraham Lincoln and Dwight Eisenhower would be crucified alive by the Right Wing media and Tea Party.

" Tea Party official opens Miss. meeting with prayer asking for violence against Republicans "
Sounds like the Progressive headliners are getting real desperate lately.
Is this the best they can do to rebut the Conservative stances ?
God forbid they try to debate any issues.

Well, the prayer did say to "set one against the other", that could mean anything from just using verbal spewage against one another all the way up to and including blowing each others heads off...all a matter of degrees. It amazes me that such a prayer exists. Sounds pretty spiteful and hateful and not very Christian-like to me. Then again, reading the bible sounds pretty much rough and tumble too...all that smiting and fire and brim stone and all...walls come tumbling down and such.
