At one time I had great hopes that the TPM might be a compassionate, inclusive and reasonable alternative to the Republicans and Democrats....then I saw this.

WellI have to largely agree with OP - those who have swallowed the leftist paradigm unreservedly, (mostly the young naive and stupid) are unbelievably easy to dupe - they get to feel special, moraly superior, educated etc - by their own self definition their viewpoint is 'moraly right' - there are no valid alternative viewpoints.
This is the same con trick that TPTP have allways used to enlist the services of countless dupes - a sort of mini-pact with the devil, when religion went out of fashion in the West - no problem just devise a whole new array of mental traps for the stupid masses.
I do have a problem with using the term Zionist - if you mean Jews just say so, if you don't then don't use a Jewish term to describe them!
I know that many jews have been placed front and centre of TPTB operations - you need to look see who it is that are pulling the strings at the back of the stage though and why it is that they want the jews to be seen as the villains of the piece.

Do you not see that the party that is supposed to be for less government and more freedom don't actually want a lot of people to have freedoms?
Hammond graduated from South Carolina College in 1825, going on to teach school, write for a newspaper and study law. He was admitted to the bar in 1828 and started a practice in Columbia, South Carolina. He established a newspaper in South Carolina in support of nullification and was also a planter. He served in the United States House of Representatives as a member of the Nullifier Party from 1835 until his resignation the next year due to ill health. After spending two years in Europe, he returned to South Carolina and engaged in agricultural pursuits. He served as Governor of South Carolina from 1842 to 1844 and in the United States Senate, following the death of Andrew P. Butler, from 1857 until his resignation in 1860 in light of South Carolina's secession from the Union.
A Democrat, Hammond was perhaps best known during his lifetime as an outspoken defender of slavery and states' rights. It was Hammond who popularized the phrase that "Cotton is King" in an 1858 speech to the Senate.
In 1839, he purchased a young female slave, Sally Johnson, with her infant daughter, Louisa. He took Sally Johnson as his mistress and fathered several of her children before replacing her with her twelve-year-old daughter, Louisa, with whom he fathered several more children. His other slaves fared no better. It was reported, in 1841, that seventy-eight of his chattel died in a ten-year period.

I’m worried, papa said that that ole Lincoln is gonna destroy everything the south has come to be. See Lincoln has been runnin' for President and papa's afraid that he may win. He said that the Northern Democrats have split up so they have to choose different people to run for president. The Northern Democrats chose Stephen Douglas, the Southern Democrats chose John Breckinridge. The Whig party chose John Bell, and the Republicans chose Lincoln. Papa says that the Northern Democrats should be ashamed of themselves. Makin' such a big fuss, just because the Southern party wanted the party to support slavery in the territories. What a shame he always tells me. Papa just tells us all to pray that Lincoln don’t win! I’m prayin' but I really don’t like the idea of slavery either. But I could never tell papa that. He’d beat me ta DEALTH!!

I'll probably write something about that soon. As you can see in allot of these posts the majority of people are terrified when you start to expose their control systems. Conflict and rage are the energies that the powers that be thrive on left or right, they need to divide in order to conquer. The one thing they can't deal with is being ignored - when people decide not to cooperate their game is over.
When did we stop seeing ourselves as AMERICANS first? When did we start seeing ourselves as republicans, democrats, independents and/or tea party first? Do we need an external threat to unite us? Why? Why can't we just unite without such a threat? The very nature of our FRACTURED society begs for some external threat to remind us that we are AMERICANS first, ---everything else second.
The "Tea Party" in it's founding, was a movement that i supported, because it was a grassroots movement, however as it has matured and grown, that focus has changed. The tea party today stands is nothing more than the re-branding of the neo-conservative movement, and has been hijacked....
