    Conceded? His point is that the field was hijacked by the GOP so it conceded Libertarians and Libertarianism.

    Hence Tea Party =/= Libertarian principles.

    No one can be "hijacked" without consent.

    That is probably one of the dumbest ****ing thing I've ever read. People who are hijacked all have to agree to being hijacked? Holy hell that's so dumb.

    Planes are hijacked because it's what the passengers want. Brilliant I say!

    I was referring to the specific context of our previous discussion.

    Spin time...

    There is no context where the phrase "hijacked" is of willing consent with the exception of hyperbolic satire or humor.

    You could be right . . . or our country could finally get off its arse and remember we use to do great things. We did well during the computer revolution, but times change. If we seriously invested in finding the next . . . real renewable energy source, we could jettison right back to the top shelf. Someone earlier in the talked linked to one of those sites that tell you about how millions are spent studying fruit fly sex lives as an example of waste to be eliminated. Now . . . imagine we spent that money on something that could equal the Manhattan project, but instead we power the world. Budget cuts and sequesters would seem foolish and OPEC would remember what it was like to ride camels.

    I think we both agree the cuts have to be rational.

    On the contrary, in the matter of political group formation one always has the option to splinter off rather than go along.

    There is one other faction that get's hijacked and it's not those who wish to go along... people can be unkowningly hijacked. Definitely seems to be the case here.

    12. Prejudice. Studies have found that authoritarian followers are among the most prejudiced
    people in society. It is the nastiest aspect of their ethnocentrism, and one they insistently deny—to
    others and to themselves. And they really do not realize how prejudiced they are, compared with
    others, because they associate so much with other prejudiced people. So their prejudices seem
    normal and perfectly justified to them.

    Racial prejudice appeared at many of the Tea Party demonstrations, in the form of signs,
    banners, and tee-shirts—just as it did during the 2008 campaign after Sarah Palin energized the
    social conservatives. Tea Party spokespersons attributed these racist attacks to outsiders, “a few bad
    apples,” or fringe members of the group. However Carl Paladino, the Republican candidate for
    governor of New York who was enthusiastically supported by the Tea Party as a “100%
    conservative,” was discovered on April 12, 2010 to have emailed racist photos (and also a picture of
    a woman having sex with a horse) to a long list of friends. One doctored photo depicted the
    president and Michelle Obama as a stereotyped black pimp and prostitute. Another described an
    African tribal dance as the Obama inauguration rehearsal. A third picture showed an airplane
    landing behind a group of black men, with the caption, “Holy ****, run niggers, run!"
    Paladino quickly disassociated himself from the emails he sent, saying “That activity is not
    Carl Paladino.” He didn‟t however say who it was instead, but still insisted he is not a racist. You
    can be pretty sure that the rank-and-file of the Tea Party doesn‟t think he is either. But the point
    here is, he sent these pictures to so many associates, some influential people in the movement had to
    know what he thought. And it was apparently all right with them too, for he got a rousing Tea Party
    endorsement.
    The vitriol directed at Barack Obama seems unprecedented to many observers. It may be
    that most Americans now see him as the President of the United States who happens to be African
    American. But to many Tea Partiers he is a black man/N-word first, who has no right to be
    president. Instead, he is a Muslim, a foreigner, a gangster, a fascist, a communist, even the anti
    Christ. And they will probably never see him as anything else.

    Seems like if you see something written, you accept it as the complete truth. So if you accept what you posted, you should accept this: http://cache.trustedpartner.com/docs...publicans3.pdf

    So which way do you turn? The TEA Party is out and the Democrat party is out, right? By the standard you are using against the TEA Party the same has to hold true for the Democrats. If that's not enough of the same type stuff you posted against the TEA Party to get you to drop being a democrat, let me know. I'll post some more for you of the same type stuff to help you remain consistent. I'll expect your attacks on the democrats to begin right away in order for you not to be hypocritical to your own standard.
