I would have to disagree with you, I am a democrat with some republican views. When the tea party first came about, they were protesting all the
taxing that is going on, hence, Taxed Enough Already party. I understand that we have very large deficit and they are trying to fix our whole
financial situtation by taxing everything. And its not just about Cap and Trade its not just about no tax breaks for big corporations. Its also about
the taxing that is going on for the little guys and young families such as myself. Taxing on ciggeretts, alchol, soda's, tanning beds, the list can
go on and on, on top of the 7% sales taxs. The working class lives pay check to paycheck and 50% are smokers, along with a large percent that drink,
not to mention the stress this recession has caused, its also adding to the drinking percentage as some people use it to cope. So we are hurting too.
I think this party more or less stands for EVERYONE who is hurting from the taxes. And the auto industry bail out along with alot of the financial
institutions that had a hand in all of this got OUR tax dollars to help bail them out, when WE are the ones that need the bail out is frustrating alot
of Americains. The msm is making this to much of a big deal, I feel like the media is an annoying instigator in this whole mess. Emotions are running
high due to the Immigration reform, which really isnt a race issue... ITS REALLY NOT!! Its pretty plain and simple, literally cut and dry... We are
only ENFORCING our laws that have always been there, just over looked. And just like anything else if you give someone an inch they want to take a
mile, and we cant as a country keeping letting the illegal immigrant issue continue... It has nothing to do with hispanics, its not about being black,
or asain!! Its about being a LEGAL citizen...IMO.....
