Really? Nothing but attacks?
How about the facts of the matter? Shouldn't they enter into it?
Voila!

The Corporate Lobbyists Behind the Tea Parties
www.huffingtonpost.com...


The Billionaire Koch Brothers waging a war against Obama.
www.newyorker.com...


Who Funds The Tea Party?
www.cbsnews.com...

What you write sounds all good and well. And it is true, we are totally and constantly manipulated. But why and by whom is still very much hidden. And I don't know why but people cannot follow a path of dollars and figure it out. You are saying it is some other among us here we cannot see pulling these two good parties apart?

Follow the effing money to the conglomerate.

You are led to believe what you will and I can't change your thinking. I am not going to call you names or question your intellect or ability to read. Not even going to whine or complain about anything. I can only say this for me....

If your solution and ideology does not include compassion for the weakest and assure the dignity of the smallest and mercy for the most misunderstood....I don't think it is a plan at all.

All efforts that are anti-man will eventually backfire.
We will see the "mighty" fall, and the meek inherit the Earth.
I think that's where we are going with this.
Just imo.

Seriously? Would you mind telling me what the TPM stands for that you are against? I am sincere -- I would really like to know what you think.



Busting Unions, cutting taxes for the wealthy, allowing corporations to infiltrate their lil Party, wanting to cut all entitlement programs, wanting to balance the budget on the backs of the poor sick and elderly. That's enough for now, I have more if you want.

The Tea Party despite the lies by the Secular Socialists and media has one simple tenet;

Personal freedom and individual responsibility.

The Secular Socialists are consistently espousing dependency. The hate for the Tea Party by the left is also very simple. Conflict arises when you want to use the government to take away my freedom to support your dependency.

All of the other rhetoric and attacks are specifically designed to obfuscate this simple conflict. The statist/socialist runs up $14 trillion dollars in debt. The Tea Party is responsible for the debt downgrade? Compromise is patriotic while standing up for one's principles is terrorism? There are plenty of Secular Socialists to defend your position in congress on both sides of the aisle, why does the Tea Party Caucus defending its principles become somehow responsible for the entire debacle when it lost the debate? I know it's hard for you to comprehend, but regardless of how much money one sends to the federal government they have historically spent $2 for every $1 they take in. Sending Washington more money will only encourage them to spend more.

The Tea party is accused of being redneck racists. Yet when Jesse Jackson comes out and says Blacks are intrinsically for Big Government Dependency, you are unable to see that the Tea party is against dependency not against Blacks.

The Tea Party is composed of uneducated ignorant people. Along these lines I'll propose to outlaw photo ID's at the polls, if you will agree that before one can vote you must solve one 6th grade Algebra word problem.

Please keep up all of the specious attacks, lies and innuendo. It only helps to increase the resolve.

The REAL Tea Party is a un-organized grouping of like-minded Americans who stood up and said WE ARE the PEOPLE and told big Government NO. No more would they allow our country to be run by the Globlist, No more would they stand for their money to be handed over to a Global Banking Cartel, No more illegal immigration. Citizens from every race and creed stood together and said NO !

There is No head of the Tea Party. There is NO formal leadership, the REAL Tea Party is and has always been like-mind Americans from every walk of life, from every race, from every political party, from every creed that had the “minerals” to stand up and say We the People want our Nation back.

How can you not support that ?



How can I not support that? Well, let me count the ways;
1. Because they are "un-organized."
2. Because I'm NOT fed up with BIG government, I'm fed up with "BAD" government. (fascist government controlled by corporate influence)
3. Because I'm not a "globalist" BUT, I do believe that if we're going to enter into a global economy, there had better be some global rules as well, otherwise it's nothing more than a race to the bottom where the workforce and lack of environmental standards in emerging economies is utilized to bring down that of established industrialized nations.
4. Because I don't believe that the answer to illegal immigration is fence and/or wall building. I believe in a much more comprehensive approach where the root causes are addressed.
5. Because there is no "head" of the Tea Party.
6. Because there is no "formal leadership."
7. Because their party platform seems to be "We Want To Take Our Country Back" (a meaningless slogan unless of course, you're talking about taking it back some 200 yrs.)
8. Because the Tea Party freshmen in the House of Representatives have clearly demonstrated their willingness to punish the entire country, (via the recent debt limit debacle and resulting credit downgrade) just to protect the wealthy elite.
9. Because they promote violence as a means by which to attain their political agenda.
10. Etc...Etc...Etc...

A few of my favorite quotes from the video...

Eliminate...Social Security, The Department of Education, The Environmental Protection Agency...


And we can eliminate FEMA! After all, natural disasters only happen in places God hates.



Avoid a hurricane! Ask your gay population to move to another State.


Too funny.

WARNING! TROLL ALERT!!

Nope, I'm not trolling.

I'm just being honest. Any document that makes people feel as if they have control over the government, is a poorly written document.


So your saying the people shouldn't have control over the government. You think America should be a dictatorship or something?

No, people already don't have any control over the govt, but they think they do. That's the problem.

That's not the fault of the constitution. The problems there are with the scumbags we vote into office.The constitution cannot force anyone to follow it that is up to the person if he/she choose to follow it or not.

Just remember socialist is the biggest word you allowed to use. Any words bigger than that and they will suspect you are educated and you will be shunned from the group.

First off, I said it "borders on treason." More specifically, I was speaking of the Senate minority leader, namely Mitch McConnell, stating that his number one priority was to see the President fail. IMO, when an elected member of congress, who takes an oath of office to support America and it's Constitution, openly states that he wants to see our POTUS fail, it borders on treason.



So by that logic, all of Germany should support hitler right? You also said "elected member of congress, who takes an oath of office to support America and it's Constitution" Ummm wouldn't going against this president be defending the constitution? You have me so lost. Going against a tyrant makes you a tyrant?

Yeah, it gave me a chuckle too. I wonder just how long it will take before we figure out what actually causes earthquakes, tornados and droughts. If God's hatred of gays is causing all of these calamities, then there must be a lot more gays than we're led to believe. I wonder whose closet they're hiding in?

Reminds me of Rick Perry's call to prayer to end the drought, weren't they praying to the same god that caused the drought?

First one would need to prove that the President has indeed violated the Constitution, otherwise it's really nothing more than mutiny.

Anything less than entering into "good faith" negotiations with the President, with regards to disputed policies, is counterproductive to the wants and needs of the American people. Holding this nation's credit rating hostage in order to dictate policy is not only inexcusable, it's unconstitutional. That's precisely why section 4 of the 14th amendment states that this nation's debt "shall not be questioned."

Therefore, IMO its the T.P./GOP that's guilty of overstepping their constitutional bounds making them the actual "tyrant" you're speaking of. Hope that helps you to find your way.

While funny as hell, I have to say that I think Bill Maher had it right when he said that there needs to be a party within a party of the democrats to balance out the situation. He called it the Donner Party, because its a 'dog eat dog' world out there! Thanks for sharing the clip!

Thanks for bringing that up! I saw it too but had completely forgotten about it. I guess that's what they call fighting "fire with fire." For anyone who wants to see it but hasn't had the opportunity, it can be seen here;

I appreciate the comedy in the video....I'm a teaparty person or just somebody who tries to expose the criminal banking cartel and the Debt/Slave system known as the Federal Reserve.

My children are counting on me to do something to ensure their rights aren't destroyed by central bankers. Entities that make things up out of thin air then expect us to give up everything we have worked for in the name of bailing them out. I hate that this country has become so self absorbed and short sighted that you can't even have a serious conversation about reality without some pre-conceived notion about fellow human beings trying to help....but hey the ship is sinking no matter what...I've got to warn my fellow humans of the clear and present danger and prepare to take care of my community as much as possible. Some of us are going to lead...some of us are going follow...some of us are going to die...and some of us are going to live...but all of us could stop this if we could just come together for once in our lives...in our time. I'M GOING DOWN SWINGING...THAT'S JUST ME.

*thanks to those trying to make a difference!*

Deebo


In the "American" justice system, an individual is presumed innocent until proven guilty. This is why the entire burden of proof is placed upon the prosecution. No one has to prove that they didn't do anything.

A very good example of this process in action would be the recent Casey Anthony case in which the prosecution totally failed with respect to fulfilling their obligation to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a murder had even occurred, much less that Casey Anthony committed it. Thus, the not guilty verdicts. Like it or not, that's the way it works here in the good ole U.S.of A..

The good news is that, if you're just predisposed to hunt down a U.S. President who is guilty of violating the constitution, you won't have to look back too far. I'd say, oh about two and a half yrs., to be exact.

Wow ..plenty of tea party threads these days.

Yeah..Bill Maher is right.. errr left... The demo's need a party inside the party too,just to make it fair. LOl.

It really sucks the Tea Party got glommed into the Republican Party, as a faction that is WORSE then the rest of the party.

IF..the 85 delegates actually effected Washington's decisions over the last 2 weeks,and BOTH sides are irritated they're effecting outcome of a carefully orchestrated 2 party system,then Game ON!

If I hear ONE more Politian from either side say how THEY'RE the BEST candiate Everrrrr, I'm going to get sick to my stomach. And not in a nice hungover kind of way.

Absolute and total bull crap. This swarmy a-hole needs to get his head out of his ass and see that the Tea Party is doing some important heavy lifting.

I know that the GOP has tried to co-opt this movement, but the real TP can still make a difference.

I think they need to kick Palin, Beck and Bachmann to the curb and show that they are a party of ideas and ideals.

That video is essentially political partisanship garbage honestly.

It has "written by Democrats" all over it.

The Tea Party they are talking about is actually the Republican party, the real Tea Party is essentially anarchist/libertarians.

And we anarchist/libertarians do not have time to partake in this political circus of idiocy, we are too busy puking our guts out due to how disgusting this whole ordeal really is.

You Republicans and Democrats are the central reason why America is collapsing. Because you are all self-centered authoritarians who only want one thing.

To boss everyone around and tax them.
