This is incredible. Nothing is official. There have been rumors of opting out of the gas tax which pays for road repair... and the tea party is already getting blamed for bad, torn up roads! (According to the first paragraph in this story)

Its a distraction tactic as well as an excuse to treat us as radicals. Create new laws to stop the evil cultists from obstructing the spreading of democracy. They're spreading it alright.

Dear Athin,

There has been talk of opting out of the gas tax for a bit now. The alternative that is planned is a usage tax, you would be taxed on the number of miles you drive. You see as we turn to hybrids and alternate fuel vehicles, the revenue stream for fixing the roads and highways decreases. This is all just a way to get people to accept usage taxes.

How anyone can think this is a tea party issue is beyond me. The current administrations push for alternative fuels would kill it regardless. You need people to buy gas to tax it don't you? So lets get real now

The tea party seems to be at the moment the only logical 'party'. How you think they're trying to DESTROY America is beyond me. Seems that the media has fed you garbage and you ate it up. If trying to get the government to stop spending money we DONT HAVE is trying to destroy America you need a reality check. Pull the wool from your eyes please.

Are you kidding me, the tea party is nothing more than an astro turf group for the big corporations. You think they have your best interests at heart? Then i'd say your the one who's been eating the garbage and you should get used to it after the tea party is done marching to the tune of there corporate masters garbage is all that will be left.

Not that i truly care about what you think, I was there at the beginning of the "TEA" party years ago getting it started. When the media first started calling us ASTROTURF movement and TEABAGGERS. Both i have heard from you. But your not drinking the coolaid right?

Also when my daughter and I went to the rallies that we helped organize, neither one of us were out there to bring down the gov.
That being said- they have been bought out and adulterated by those with corp interests, but go ahead and keep poking and pushing the regular guys that are just trying to make things better. Eventually we will all be in the same boat as no one on this site is part of the PTB.

I wont deny when the tea party first started they were a force for good and an honest to goodness grass roots movment. But now that you have people like Dick Armey calling the shots i believe they have lost all legitimacy and are nothing more now than a group of people being co-opted by the business elite.
