Dont worry bud this is to be expected. The Tea Party has exploded in historic numbers with support in little over a year and threaten the liberals so therfore they will attack even if it means by spreading lies and being immoral. The more they scream the more the Tea Party is experiencing success. Afterall, they would not be screaming if the Tea Party had no effect.
The more the liberals scream and hate the more people will be driven to the Tea Party b/c they will be put off by the liberals.
The liberals will attack our intell, common sense,etc and this is okay b/c frankly its not true. Tell that to the hundreds of people i saw leave their offices and go to the Tea Party. The message is strong and the liberals stand no fighting chance slowing the Tea Party down. VA,NJ and MA is proof and November will be a wonderful month. The message is stronger than any liberal protest and America knows this.[/quote]
I read this forum all the time, but am still closted and in the process of getting a divorce right now. Hopefully will be able to post more in the future.
Listen kid, either you are deeply disturbed or simply a plant from the tea party attempting to drum up support. I say this because someone posts about what they did to gays(rape and defiling the boidy) in that African country and your response was who cares with a laughing sign behind it.
Who cares? Well you don't have to complain about liberals-your fine behaviour on this board is good enough reason as to why no one with even a little bit of sense and compassion will join the tea party.
I am a lifelong republican and just ashamed to be called one. To imagine we were the party of Lincoln and now we select a person (Palin) who does not know Africa is a country. This new guy Scott Brown -I mean why did he get elected -because he drove a pick up truck? I drive a pick up truck, go hunting and have horses. I hunt elk and bear and have gutted, eaten and mount them too. Suddenly that alone qualifies me to be Senator or President? What has this country come to? That is like the dems choosing Paris Hilton to be President. This woman raised taxes in her home state and now she comes out against taxes?
It is people like you and these opportunity mongers that bring shame to the Republic party and have me registering as an independant. I am ashamed to stay I voted for Bush the first time. But I believe the republic party has been taken over by an extreme fringe who can't talk straight and have any good policy comments. I hope to God it changes and we can have good sensible leaders who can actually be fiscally conservative, against nation building and really follow the constitution. As in stop having the govt in everybody's bedrooms-Terri Schiavo, gays, drugs. Small govt means small govt not only in the areas you epouse for. The day I decided I could never be a Republican was the day President Bush signed that bill or law intruding into Terri Sciavo. That is so against everything I hold to be conservative. These people who got elected and the tea party are making the conservative movt look like -Ok I don't wan't to go there.
I have been a lifelong businessman and I support health insurance changes. You know why. Because I pay for the best insurance. I am also going to have to pay for my soon to be ex wife. But I still do love the woman, just need to explore this side of me before getting too old. But anyhow, I am already paying for socialized medicine. All the folks ranging from the illegals to people with serious ailments who use the emergency rooms because they have no insurance-where on earth do you the think the hospitals get that money from. From people like me by charging higher premiums. Nope-I don't wan't that service to go away, because I don't wan't to be in an accident somehwere and a hospital refuse to treat me because I have no proof of medical insurance on me. It just makes me wonder are all these tea party folks really protesting because now they actually will be forced to buy health insurance. I mean what is so bad-till today you can have insurance for 20 years and be kicked out if you get a disease and are due to circumstances, forced to change insurance. That is just outrage.
Kid, I think you have never had a business and run it for a long time or known other small businesses. Else the older you get and the more conditions you have, you would know how tough it was to have health insurance. If you run a small business with a few employees and the cost just shot up if you have a few who are beyond a age threshold. I am happy.
Anyhow this lifelong republican is now an independant and proud of it. Sarah Palin, Scott Brown do not represent my party. Nor dopes Romney-be proud of who you are-one thing I hate with a passion in life is a weasel. If you can't stand proud of your record and keep changing everything about it to suit the circumstances-then sorry I have no respect for that. McCain I always respected him-until he picked Palin. I mean that person could be our President. I mean OOh let me try my hand at being a Vice President -oops didn't work out, let me do a reality show and compete with the Kardashians and Paris Hilton.
You don't need liberals to scare people off the tea party. You are enough-just a one man ad for what a tea party person is like. Cold, heartless and just callous. The first thing that comes out of our mouth about the horrors in some African country is so what? Please go away and let the people with some good ideas come back -this country needs more of them and maybe before my time, I will be proud of being a Republican again.
