while denouncing the democrats as too liberal and the republicans not conservative enough they ran under the.
Thanks for at least admitting the real truth about the Tea Baggers movement.
They aren't middle of the road, and they never intended to be. They are a fringe group even more right wing than GW and his pals.
I think they represent a very vocal, but very extreme right wing ideology that does not connect with the vast number of independents who would like to
see the best of the two parties combined.
We need a real tax cut, which mainly cuts taxes for people making between 40k and 150k, along with a real budget cut that gets rid of the pork.
Cutting income taxes for the rich, and then raising all the fees that small businesses have to pay for government regulation isn't a tax cut, it is a
transfer of wealth from small businesses to the rich corporations.
Government regulation of business should be streamlined, and user friendly. We need more laws to protect businesses from abusive regulators, because
most of the abuse comes at the local levels. People who work for government are public servants, and this needs to be re-established.
It is important to stand up for minority rights and immigrants, but not at the point where active discrimination at the group defined as the majority

Time to pull back on the safety laws. Making an honest mistake should not be a crime. People who get a ticket every once in a while should not have

Investment activities that are essentially gambling on the stock market should be taxed like gambling.
Time to start throwing all the white collar criminals in jail.
time to end the war on drugs.
Time to restart spending on our infrastructure here in the U.S., maybe even time to rethink our nations transportation infrastructure.
If we don't have money to fix our own infrastructure, then we don't have money to spend overseas.
Time to reign in immigration. We need tighter limits, and employers of illegals should be looking at massive fines and jail time.
These are the things I think most people in the middle would support.
While the party extremists at both ends are completely against these types of ideas. It would take away their power and control.
