The Tea Party was created by Ron Paul.
The people on wallstreet are not anti capitalist. The problem is we no longer operate under free market capitalism. The game is rigged.
They have stolen the wealth. They have imploded our economy by design. They will continue to steal our money.
The Federal Reserve does need to be abolished considering it goes against our constitution and that we didnt have a central bank in this country until
1913 because our founding fathers were strictly against the idea.
The media refused to even cover this until they got the green light. It went on for weeks until msm actually covered it.
It was not really created by Ron Paul. Ron Paul supporter's began to go to tea party rallies after Rick Santelli's rant on CNBC. The tea party was

most powerful nation in the world to step in and help another nation. Which occasionally may result in war.
I know Paulbots don't like to hear these things and will probably get their panties in a bunch about this comment but the truth is the man is a
libertarian in the sense of corporations being free from any government regulation. Of course he speaks of certain individual freedoms that are not
likely to happen. He is against the separation of church and state, he is against a woman's right to choose, he is against an Americans right to have
access to healthcare. He is shunned by many true libertarian groups because of these things.
He wants healthcare to remain in the 'free-market', which is the last place that healthcare should remain. Healthcare does not work well as a for
Anyway, I am done. No one on this site will listen anyway. Most are simply following the trend.
