And No, because no matter how much we like a Politician, they are still a Politician. I trust none of them.

Funny. Both parties in the United States are screwing America. The Tea Party did not accumulate $14 Trillion in debt.
....Where are the Tea Party calls to downsize the military, eliminate the TSA, Homeland Security, and end the wars on Terrror and Drugs? Where are the calls to downsize the prisons and stop holding at huge expense the world's largest prison population? Where are the calls to end corporate subsidies and tax loopholes? Where are the calls for corporate responsibility? ....

.. tea partiers clamoring for the debt-ridden government to slash spending say nothing should be off limits. Tea party-backed lawmakers echo that argument, and they’re not exempting the military’s multibillion-dollar budget in a time of war....
Cutting defense and canceling weapons could mean deep spending reductions and high marks from tea partiers as the nation wrestles with a $1.3 trillion deficit. Yet it also could jeopardize thousands of jobs when unemployment is running high....
House Republican leaders specifically exempted defense, homeland security and veterans’ programs from spending cuts in their party’s “Pledge to America” campaign manifesto last fall.But the House’s new majority leader, Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., has said defense programs could join others on the cutting board....
So there would have been no need for a tea party had Palin got into the White house. OK that makes it a bit clearer for me.
...In 1992, Mitt Romney was running Bain Capital, a private equity firm. Bain Capital bought American Pad & Paper Co. (Ampad) for $5 million.
Over the next several years Romney's firm bled the company dry. Hundreds of workers lost their jobs. Stockholders were left with worthless shares. Creditors and vendors were paid less than 50 cents on the dollar. While they were exploiting the company, Romney's firm charged Ampad millions of dollars in "management fees." In all, Romney and his investors reaped more than $100 million dollars from the deal..... www.massresistance.org...

"Tea party support are not remotely the majority of the American people"
Its very close or more than 50%. They are people who have been forced to compromise all of their ideals away by the actual minority.
Weatherman, known colloquially as the Weathermen and later the Weather Underground Organization (abbreviated WUO), was an American radical left organization. It originated in 1969 as a faction of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) composed for the most part of the national office leadership of SDS and their supporters. Their goal was to create a clandestine revolutionary party for the violent overthrow of the US government.
With revolutionary positions characterized by Black separatist rhetoric, the group conducted a campaign of bombings through the mid-1970s, including aiding the jailbreak and escape of Timothy Leary. The "Days of Rage", their first public demonstration on October 8, 1969, was a riot in Chicago timed to coincide with the trial of the Chicago Seven. In 1970 the group issued a "Declaration of a State of War" against the United States government, under the name "Weather Underground Organization" (WUO). The bombing attacks mostly targeted government buildings, along with several banks. Most were preceded by evacuation warnings, along with communiqués identifying the particular matter that the attack was intended to protest. For the bombing of the United States Capitol on March 1, 1971, they issued a communiqué saying it was "in protest of the US invasion of Laos."

Even Russia and China are republics. . . . A republic is a generic term signifying merely a governmental entity that is not a monarch and in theory is run by the people. Read your own post. Your professor said America is a DEMOCRATIC republic.

That’s a very non-humanistic and selfish view of life, imo, as well as anti-American.
Do you feel the same way about your tax money going to killing children in Iraq, does that ever bother you?
