    Did you mean to conflate the 'it's really the dems fault who weren't in power until january 20th 2007' with "whenever I spoke up about it, I was called a communist, terrorist sympathizer, etc."?

    Would make sense but we havent had Fiscal Conservativism in years, where have you been?
    Who's fault is that? I didn't vote for Bush. Oh, the cons did... those silly conservatives who didn't start whining about it until january 20th 2007...

    Hmm... well you're right. The left sure did a lot of complaining about the stolen election.

    I don't remember however, talks about secession, revolution, hoping for the president to fail, voting from the roof tops...

    What planet have you spent the last 8 years on? Conservatives have had their issues with Bush all along. Just because they didn't foam at the mouth when bringing those issues up doesn't mean it didn't happen. I guess maybe if they had spoken in "hystericese" you might have understood that.

    But then, at no time in history, even over the last 8 years, was a deficit anything like this current one being debated (more than three times Bush's biggest one, and more than ten times the 2007 deficit) ever run. If there's a time for foaming, it's now.

    I'm not quite sure how you arrived at me making your point, but whatever. I've never known you to make a coherent post so far so I don't know why I thought that would change now.

    Please Jallman....Conservatives practically creamed their jeans for Bush until it became clear that he wasn't going to be able to salvage his Presidency....then they started jumping like rats on a ship...trying to label Bush a liberal.

    And your perception has been known to be warped, too.

    That's a dangerous sentiment. He is patronizing those people by dangling red meat before them and they are eating it up and swallowing it whole.

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry fired up an anti-tax "tea party" Wednesday with his stance against the federal government and for states' rights as some in his U.S. flag-waving audience shouted, "Secede!"

    An animated Perry told the crowd at Austin City Hall — one of three tea parties he was attending across the state — that officials in Washington have abandoned the country's founding principles of limited government. He said the federal government is strangling Americans with taxation, spending and debt.

    Perry repeated his running theme that Texas' economy is in relatively good shape compared with other states and with the "federal budget mess." Many in the crowd held signs deriding President Barack Obama and the $786 billion federal economic stimulus package.

    Perry called his supporters patriots. Later, answering news reporters' questions, Perry suggested Texans might at some point get so fed up they would want to secede from the union, though he said he sees no reason why Texas should do that.

    "There's a lot of different scenarios," Perry said. "We've got a great union. There's absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, you know, who knows what might come out of that. But Texas is a very unique place, and we're a pretty independent lot to boot."

    He said when Texas entered the union in 1845 it was with the understanding it could pull out. However, according to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, Texas negotiated the power to divide into four additional states at some point if it wanted to but not the right to secede.
