That's right.
Just not those pesky teachers, police, or the citizens of Benton Harbor, right? Only some people should have those rights.

I have an honest question for many of the self proclaimed TEA party members that this thread has kind of made me think of. Why do you suppose I see so many more mugshots of minorities on the news than say, upper class white girls?

Why? Because the system is rigged to instill distrust amongst the common folk, as well as other factors. One of the basic principles of limited government in the form of a constitutionally limited Republic is that the Law is supreme. As opposed to a democracy, in which the will of the majority is supreme. The failure of democracies lies in the fact that they inevitably lead to an oligarchy so long as the elite few can appease the majority. In star-wars terms: Republic Good. Empire Bad.


To the OP: The absolute truth about the tea party is that it is not, as has been assumed, a political affiliation. It is a conglomerate of people from all walks of life who have come together under a common banner, with similar observations. Amongst those observations is this: The machine that is our current form of government (i.e. representative constitutional democracy) is broken. Ask one hundred of those folks how to fix it, and you will likely be presented with no less than seventy different solutions.

Personally, I prefer a return to constitutionally limited Republic.

So what you're saying is that all of the tea party candidates that ran as independents failed to obtain office? Wouldn't that be direct vindication of the assertion that the tea party and the republican party are one in the same? I mean based on the election results, they damn sure aren't democrats or independents, or if they are, they can't get any tea party support as such.

Thanks to Obama and all his lie's and rhetoric and now the unions and Muslims join in the choir of whiner's the country has had the opportunity to see the real socialist movement and what kind of people they are and better yet what they offer.................. or else.


Please back up what you say with facts.
Well you can tell when the liberals are looseing there grip,all they do is whine and ridicule and make short vidieo's depicting there anger and fear mongering of the conserative's or Tea Party.

As far as Obama he speaks for himself,(or not)if you don't see it then you never will.

If you haven't seen how the unions and Muslims have come together on MSM and the internet every other week then you must live under a rock.I thought all of this was common knowledge to people with inquisitive minds.Sorry if you need stick figures to understand.

Bottom line this is my opinion after watching the vidieos and what you think or feel about how i presented it is meaningless to me.

Are you a new type of Shill?.................just asking.

I have no clue what your response means or how it relates.
Please see how I phrased it the second time and see if you can respond in a way that seems to make sense.

Why do you suppose I see more animal cruelty cases on the news about dogs than I do horses?
Why do you suppose I see more fatal car accidents involving SUVs as opposed to compact cars on the news?

Same question, no race involved. Hopefully it can be addressed now?

I am still waiting for you to explain how is it?
Who does get rich in capitalist society?
Creative people or lucky manipulative coiners?

So wouldn't that mean that the people decided they did not want any and rejected the TEA party? I mean, I am confused as to how the TEA party was successful and independant and failed to win all them independant seats, especially if they are all so popular with the people. That is very perplexing.

The people you refer to as manipulative I've already explained simply bought property they profited from. Nothing wrong with that.

Creative people get rich all the time in American society.

bruji - I've read some quotes and I've gotten a general idea, but when someone is writing lies meant to deceive people, it doesn't really matter if I've actually read it. It's like me calling Chris Matthews a Lib shill, I've seen and heard enough to know. Reagan sums it up well, "How do you tell a Communist? Well, it's someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It's someone who understands Marx and Lenin."


Ah, mr reagan...the man that spend billions/trillions on "star wars" to fight a make-believe enemy that soon became capitalist after the fall of the berlin wall. The man that deregulated and privatised everything under the son. THAT REAGAN!

And let me tell you, every system has variations so like capitalism and communism, socialism has its own..


From Fritz Springmeier, at rense.com, "The Bund der Gerechten (League of the Just) was an illuminati front run mainly by Jews who were Satanists. This Bund financed in part by the Rothschilds paid the Satanist and Mason Karl Marx to write the Communist Manefesto. The Jew Gumpel Oppenheim was in the inner circle of the Bund. His relative Heinrich Oppenheim masterminded the communist revolution of 1848 in Germany. The Communist Party's official histories even accept the Bund as the predecessor of Communism." - That's all I need to read.


Rense.com is known for horrible disinfo and I would not put a penny's worth of credibility on them. And the crap your pushing about "satanic" jews creating the communist manifesto are pure lies. Hitler fell into the same trap believing "evil" jews were behind bankrupting germany both financially and morally. Seriously your propaganda does NOT get much EVILER than that!


"1 if you want something you need to work for it and second that the only thing in life that can hold you back is YOU!" - Does Marx say this?

Classic right wing ideology....rules of the jungle mentallity! I thought humans were the supreme "animals" in the animal kingdom but some people disagree. Yeah lets rape and pillage everything to get wealthy. Take a trip to the congo and see how many people get killed for diamonds or iraq for oil or afghanistan for opium...........

hate people like me.



Please Ignore this post.



Great post... I love an unbreakable argument. Well, either you are a confused Hispanic immigrant in desperate need of some progressive indoctrination OR you have your head screwed on straight and the left is full of BS. I would be willing to bet that it is the later of the two.

rand paul acting like a republican?


i will agree with you they sure aren't democrats and thats a good thing



whats a republican suppose to act like so next time i will know how to act like one

thought states themselves decide who gets to run on any given ballot dont they?

i am sure that if there woulda been a box that said teaparty alot of people would have voted for them.

3 choices are given on any ballot most times just 2 left right and independent.

and then agian the teaparty doesnt have the acceptance of the democrats and republicans.

you want to call them all republicans it is disingenous because they not all are.

dude it takes creativity and luck as well as those other qualities that severely lack in most americans,

that is why everyone is not rich.

if becoming rich is easy everyone would be and since everyone isnt what does that tell you.

Where are you getting your info on the Tea Party, I wonder.
And the Koch Brothers?

Koch Industries employees 50,000 people here in the States, and another 20,000 in other countries, for a total of 70,000 jobs worldwide.

Care to take a stab at how many their evil arch-nemesis, George Soros, employees?
Hint, Hint, it's a round number.

Of the 50,000 jobs created in the U.S. by the Koch Brothers, 80% are union jobs.

Here in Wisconsin, teachers unions, and public employee unions hold $5.5 million in Georgia Pacific (owned by Koch Bros.) corporate bonds.
Go right ahead and and boycott the Koch Industries.
It's only your pension!
Brilliant!

I appreciate your care and concern for what's happening here in the U.S. but if you're going to be so concerned with the elites' influence on government, the be concerned about all of it, rather than just picking the ones you disagree with.


All great points... but I would add that "Right to Work Laws" have a little to do with the fact that they employ union members. Not in all cases, but it is a factor.
