    And yet Charles Manson is more popular than the Democrat controlled congress at the moment.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    "Okay, suppose the Tea Party Movement organized itself as a political party. When thinking about the next election for Congress, would you vote for the Republican candidate from your district, the Democratic candidate from your district, or the Tea Party candidate from your district?"

    The response of all those who were polled was Democratic 36%, Tea Party 23% and Republican 18%.


    Long live the tea party movement. We should all encourage their efforts.

    I will vote for who ever closely matched my views. I support bringing down the two party monopoly. But If I am satisfied with the job the Incumbent politician is doing then I will vote for that politician regardless of party.

    A little use (and study) of history would do you some good.
    This is not entirely true. The Southern Strategy is just a name given to a vote gathering strategy from Southern whites. It was first used by Southern Democrats in the 40s and 50s when campaigning against desegregation and for the continuance of Jim Crow laws. It was picked up by Republicans in the 60s and given an official name by Nixon later on. You're both wrong.

    Democrats would have won regardless if a republican won or a democrat won. At least however the people actually had real choices when the conservative candidate ran instead of just liberal democrat and liberal who is a closet democrat.

    Not all those who opposed desegregation in the 50s-60s were Democrats either.

    You are comparing people protesting against taxes to racist?

    Did you actually check the date on that article? It's just amazing just how much things have changed in just a few months of total democratic party control.
