This is a list of bullet points and facts comparing our current national statistics. It's very interesting to me; the long list of things the Republicans have done to push me away and some of the things that BO has done that don't bother me.

This article really makes it simple to understand where the Tea Party came from and, from my experience, the sorts of people who are in it.

"The American people don't want to be governed from the left, right or middle. They want to govern themselves."

U.S. corporations are enjoying a 65% profit increase in 2011, the highest profits in U.S. history and the highest profits in the world.

U.S. executives/investors got an 11% pay increase in 2011. They pay each other anywhere from 700 to 400 times more than what their U.S. workers get.

There are 8 million U.S. millionaires in 2011 up from 6 million in 2008. These are not penny saving baby boomers but executives/investors who have slimmed U.S. worker wages and outsourced jobs.

49% of all new jobs in 2011 are low wage $9 to $13 per hour.
14% of all new jobs in 2011 are high wage 19$ to $33 per hour.
McDonald's got over 1 million applicants.

Walmart U.S. reports trouble. K-Mart and Target report good times.
New U.S. Home Sales are at an 8 year low.

That article was one of the purest forms of liberal bullcrap I have read in a long time. The person(s) that wrote it were sheeple wearing blinders. It may have been collectively written by the sitting drones in this oldie but goodie commercial:

This isn't liberal or bullcrap mishigas. American Thinker is a conservative site. A list of Randall Hoven's previous articles ( www.americanthinker.com... ) betrays no liberalism.

This is really, "just the way it is" and I think it's the reason there is such a thing as the "Tea Party" today. Neither of the 2 parties are committed to their oath of office. If anyone had been, we wouldn't be in this epic mess.

The website may be conservative, but this article is pure liberal bullcrap. I could go through and debunk many of the bullets he makes.

...unless the article is being deeply sarcastic and I just missed it?

On this, we agree. The TPM stands for small government, lower taxes, and adherence to the Constitution. It is successful because of the Obama's of the world.

No, you couldnt "debunk" it, but you could spew partisan rhetoric that you learned from the teevee....the thread title is ironic and has been proved within 10 posters. "Its not what I want to hear so that must be liberal bullcrap!"

Is this article serious?



The economy.

The economy is being propped up by the FED and 10% of GDP deficit spending. It's not ``Obama's`` doing... and even if it was, it's all fake growth.

And the economy isn't all about jobs and stock market. Guess what, NOTHING THAT CAUSED THE CRISIS WAS FIXED. NOTHING. The banks are robbing the country blind, inflation is at unseen levels since the end of the 70s, but eh, the stock market is rising! Cheer up!


Taxes.

Taxes are indeed lower right now, but wait till Obamacare fully kicks in, or cap and trade, or private toll roads, or pay by the mile, or the dollar collapse, or the bond market say NO MORE DEFICIT SPENDING... your taxes are gonna skyrocket.


Spending.

Total insane spending.


The War On Terror.

The whole war on terror is a scam. The patriot act being extended, doing more drone attacks in Pakistan, attacking Libya, retaining Robert Gates and putting more troops in Afghanistan are supposed to be GOOD THINGS? What are those people smoking?


Immigration.

Yeah let's forget they are trying to pass amnesty and they supplied thousands of guns to drug cartels on purpose, probably killing thousands of innocent people in Mexico... great job there.


Compared to other advanced economies.

Compared to other advanced economies? Like the revolutions/riots Bernanke's insane economic policies have produced?


Compared to Republicans.

Yeah let's compare the two heads of the same dragon together.


The bailout of banks? Bush started that.

And Obama rallied the senators into voting for it. And he voted for it.

The bailout of auto companies? Bush started that.

And Obama voted for it and continued.

Government take-over of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and 90% of the home mortgage business that went with them? Bush did that.

And again, Obama voted for it and even expanded it.

Ethanol subsidies? Pushed by many Republicans and expanded by Bush.

And still going on.

Outlawing light bulbs? Bush did that.

Still illegal.

Mandating individual health insurance? Mitt Romney did that.

And? Romney did it for one state, Obama did it for everyone.

"Comprehensive" immigration reform? Both Bush and McCain pushed that.

And Obama is too.

No Child Left Behind? Ted Kennedy and George W. Bush pushed that, and Bush signed it into law.

Yeah and it was a crappy crappy program.

# Do you want a vigorous attack against waterboarding? Just ask John McCain.

Still going on.

Anyway this whole article is such BS. Based on lies and distortion and some things pictured as good are total garbage.

Democrats = Republicans. Simple as that.

The only ones out of both those parties full of shills are Ron Paul/Gary Johnson/Kucinich, 99% of the others are sellouts.

Thanks for stopping by to sling personal attacks. Next time try discussing the topic instead of the posters.

Many of the bullets in the article were liberal bullcrap. I agree with the author's conclusions, like


None of this changes my mind about Obama. I think he is a doctrinaire Marxist. I think he is one of the stupidest people to hold that office. And for my money he is by far the most obnoxious (the I-me-my president) in my lifetime, and perhaps history.


but I don't like the bullets he used.

I could go ahead and prove you wrong, but Vitchilo, the responder right below your post, did a good job.

Did he? He just spewed partisan crap he heard from the teeve. Here let me take two random examples:

I see. So, although it was the Bush Administrations plan, and Bush fought for it, it was all really the fault of 1 senator. Take off the blinders..."your" side isnt right 100% of the time. YOU arent right 100% of the time, if you believe you are, then well ?

Proof? Oh, it actually hasnt happened yet, so you are basing your demonization of a person on SOMETHING THAT HAS NEVER EVEN OCCUREED YET.....when in fact OBAMA ACTUALLY LOWERED YOUR TAXES. How about giving something a chance, instead of just attacking everyhting thats is different the moment you see it.


Listen, I am no Democrat apologist, I hate them as much as the Republicans. But people like you seem to think that everything said on FOX news is truth, and come here and repeat it when it is blatantly false, and you make more people believe it because they heard it from more than one place. Just like Goebbels said, Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes truth, and people like you are helping to make it happen.

The REpublican Party has historically helped corporations hold their boot on the throat of American citizens, and yet you keep voting for them because you think they hold your conservative ideals. Jesus this is depressing, you people are going to burn my country to the ground and welcome in a facist dictator all the while screaming about freedom.

Sorry, in your haste to troll, you are making some major assumptions that are not based on fact. Why do you think it is necessary to try to make this a R vs D battle? I am neither; I am an Independent with conservative ideals. I believe in small government, economic thrift, and the Constitution. I'm a natural advocate of the Tea Party Movement; they make perfect common sense to me. I am strongly against socialistic principles held by Obama and his advocates such as you.



Proof? Oh, it actually hasnt happened yet, so you are basing your demonization of a person on SOMETHING THAT HAS NEVER EVEN OCCUREED YET.....when in fact OBAMA ACTUALLY LOWERED YOUR TAXES. How about giving something a chance, instead of just attacking everyhting thats is different the moment you see it.


If a potus is making statements supporting high taxes such as cap and trade would bring, you would do well to heed the warnings even though it is "SOMETHING THAT HAS NEVER EVEN OCCUREED YET". So don't accuse us of being paranoid, please. Perhaps your knuckles are aching from being dragged on the ground as you follow Obama's socialistic plan to destroy this nation...

So let's keep the discussion on topic and stop with the Fox News crap, OK?

Do you think that workers would be better off if the government didn't step in between workers and executives?

Of course I think that. Our relationships with our employers are professional and personal relationships that shouldn't have anything at all to do with the government. Employers should be free to hire and fire, employees should be free to walk. That's not the only job in town. Screw that guy I'm outta here.

Where is there room for the government in that type of relationship? When you are a free man, there is none.
