Absolutely!!!!! I don't even know what I am anymore I often simply say independent just because I'll vote for whoever based on their individual merits irregardless of party affiliation, however then I get lumped in with a bunch of people who I actually tend to disagree quite a bit.

I don't particularly want to have another party, perhaps we get rid of parties all together, and let each candidate stand on their own.

It absolutely is. For example, I don't know if you saw the story (and please forgive me I can't remember which program it aired on, I'm thinking maybe RT bc I've been watching quite a bit of that lately). Anyway, the Tea Party Express, which is the tour that was used to rally the people for the tea party movement is run by a pr firm, Russo and Rogers, they largely deal with GOP fund raising, yet they make quite the pretty penny off both groups. I believe the figures were that out of the 1.5 million in donations to the Tea Party Express 1 million went to Russo and Rogers. It is nothing but a scam........but wherever Beck and Palin go the express is sure to follow.

Hey, I absolutely hear you! I don't call myself anything. Because I'm not loyal to a political party. I vote for the individual and I believe in individual freedom. So I just don't claim a party or even Independent. I like to keep them guessing.
I think political parties are one of the biggest problems with the electoral system today.

Sorry for the sidetrack.

Meh! It does not surprise me. I was hoping to see Ron Paul's son take the lead, but after seeing his faux paux on several issues, I guess the movement dies with Ron Paul.
It is obvious that a shadow government is affecting and influencing the candidates we thought were going to bring change. I guess a Washington seat brings alot of power, and in sitting in that leather loafer, some powerful people can come out of the wood work and start influencing you.'s the same cycle whatever label you put on it.

I'm sure some of the people who received Tea Party support will betray their supporters, just as every politician does.
It is up to all voters, not just the Tea Party, to be vigilant (vote-wise only, people!) against all government.

If elected politicians do not do the will of the people,


It sounds so simple.

Hopefully, this will be Bachmann's last term.

"FOX news would say that Obama henchmen made her change her vote...i mean really...he's to blame for everything. he was a community organizer after all, and a non-citizen, and a socialist...did i mention that he is black?"

But how can people blame Obama? He's only been in office for 3 years. Everyone know its all Bush's fault. To think otherwise is purely racist.

BTW, I also have ocean front property for sale in Arizona if anybody is interested.

The REAL Tea Party was formed due to frustration over Bush's policies. They were fuming angry at the Republicans...this was long before Obama was even nominated by the Democrats. The Tea Party was anti-war, anti-Patriot Act, against Bush's out of control spending and bailouts...

Then Obama got elected and the Republican party realized that they needed to be seen as they had Palin and Beck infiltrate the movement and systematically get rid of all of the people who started the movement.

Sadly, it is now a shill group for the Republican party...the real Tea party people have either been suckered in to the Republican party line, or are left to once again start from scratch with a new grassroots movement...a movement that will be infiltrated and taken over as soon as it gains a foothold.

The public's memory is very short. The globalist depend on this fact. Their neoconservative henchmen and women know this as well. The people will not forget I think the betrayal of our republic that the neocons have brought us. They war for profit and count the dead as part of the cost they accept. We need to keep the war hawks out of the Tea Party. The world needs a powerful and free America but they need one that can keep the peace and stay within the rule of law as well.

That is a defeatist attitude, dude.
Don't give up! Keep fighting, and righting the wrongs. Don't you think that the talking heads WANT you to believe that you could never sustain a movement?

It's called HOPE. Pure and simple, people were hoping that the TP was a real movement. They were hoping that the Republican ideals wouldn't hold up under Tea Party rule. They were lied to and believed it. It's really kind of sad.

Are you trying to tell me that the TEA Party people had "hope" that there would be "change?"

Originally posted by DIDtm doesn't matter.
They all have the same agenda, they just run under different ruses.
As soon as people recognize this and understand it, then a true third party representative will get elected. And only then, will a real change be plausible.

A friend of mine went off on me and said the Tea Party is a third party,...essentially.
I politely bought him drink and told him to read.

GO RON PAUL.....It seems you may be our only savior.

I cannot help but believe that if Ron Paul actually had a shot at the presidency, I would be reading posts that say TPTB purposely set up the system to drive people away from the two party system directly into a preselected third option.

What you refer to as silence from the Tea Party is actually silence from the media on TP movement that is not interesting to the press.

That is what I like to call a blatant LIE.

The press will not bring a camera out even when the TP is 10,000 strong at a rally for the republic for instance and Ron Paul is speaking.

Got evidene that rally took place? I am guessing "yes." Got any evidence 10,000 gathered to protest Bachman's vote?

You can say the media is not covering it if that makes you feel better. How about you tell me what the media is not covering. Protests? Marches? Rallies? Or is NONE OF THAT HAPPENING?

Let the Tea Party Express and Palin command a crowd and the press are all over it and thus no silence. It is all a lot of perception engineering by the MSM. The real grass roots is ignored and the fringe crazies or the neocons are the ones that have a camera in their face. It distorts the truth of the grass roots involvement.

That all sounds just wonderful. The reality is though that the TEA party is not doing a damn thing in response to this.

I remember early on in the Tea Party there was a rally for the republic in DC and over 10,000 + people attended. It was peaceful and orderly if loud. There were dozens of videos on youtube covering it and RT, Press TV, and Al Jazeera were all there with cameras but not one American news outfit covered this very large event. Fox did not start covering the Tea Party events until it had been infiltrated and cooped by the neocons they serve. It is all just perceptual distortion and control you are reacting to.

I am really not sure what any of this has to do with anything here.

The TEA Party worked hard to elect people like Bachman and now that she voted for the patriot act, they could care less what she does. Posting some stuff on facebook compared to 10000 people gathering together does not seem at all different to you?

Sounds like business as usual. Our politicians will lie, kill, cheat and steal in order to obtain their agendas. Pick a party, it doesn't seem to matter how they get their way as long as they do. Morals and ethics in Washington are a thing of the past.
