    People buy guns for self-protection, for hunting, for sport-shooting, for competition matches. I bought mine for self-defense.

    I'm not here to argue with you about an imaginary fear of armed revolt. If that's what you want to believe, you have that perrogative. I have not seen a single reliable source of information that indicates a revolt is in the works. Maybe at the ballot box, but not in the streets. Most gun owners who obtain their guns legitimately are reasonable and practical individuals. They don't want to fight, they don't want war, they abhor violence, but they readily defend themselves.

    Please create "long list" with "citations"


    Thank you.

    Translation: I made boom boom on carpet. My article does not contain the claim/charge that Tea Party members are planning to use firearms to overthrow the government, I am a seriously dishonest hack.

    Yeah, we noticed.

    If that were going to happen, I suspect Biden, Kennedy, and Bayh just might have hung in a little longer.

    The tea party is more making politicians accountable for the conservatism they campaign on, not creating a new political party.

    Thank you.
    This is why liberals want to disarm the public, so there will never be a threat from the People to the govt.

    I don't know where you live, but I live in a republican district in California. None of my neighbors or colleagues, conservative, independents, or otherwise want to have anything to do with what the 'Tea Party' has become.

    Their agenda is a very unworkable mix of fiscal conservative rhetoric, populism, and anti-government/anti-Obama fringe.


    The liberal media are trying desperately to paint this movement as a terrorist Klan movement bent on eating babies, but it ain't working.
    Yes--the big bad billion-dollar media corporations... a real liberal bunch

    The sad irony of people who watch Fox news because they believe the other networks are biased--they actually believe they are getting a fair and balanced accounting of current events.

    Does it ever occur to them that Fox just frames the "news narrative" in a way that confirms their outlook?

    Much like global warming, the gig is up on the media. The more they attack this down-to-earth movement, who is trying simply to get Republicans politicians to act like conservatives and oust the radical left from government, the more strength it gains.
    Meanwhile, back on planet earth, independents are only hearing hyper-partisan talking points and no workable solutions from this new party...

    They may be able to disrupt some congressional districts, state and local elections, but, at the national level, they're lacking in political-savvy and experience.


    If it weren't working, do you honestly think Bayh, Biden, and Kennedy would have dropped out of their races? Would New Jersey have a conservative governor, and would a Republican won Kennedy's senate seat?
    Again, meanwhile, back on planet earth, none of those things you mentioned had anything to do with the Tea Party... Despite what their idiot King (Beck) and Queen (Palin) say...

    As usual Hazelnut means to preach, but comes across a screech. You gotta love how he tries to slag Fox News watchers as being naive enough to think that the "other" news networks are biased, as if this really is not the case. Only Fox News is biased!! Poor Hazelnut and his FDS, and he is talking all about the real world too! Koo koo koo koo.

    That right there explains why you've gotten this so wrong.

    In middle America - you know, the part you coasters seem to right off as a bunch of hillbillies running around barefoot - the tea party movements are very positive, social, and un-newsworthy beyond their mere getting together against big government.

    You want big, involved government. I don't expect you to understand this.

    Please quote some BS source that proves your nonsense claim about "liberals want to disarm the public"? It must be from a reputable rightwing truth sheet or at least a Murdoch owned bastion of honesty.

    Oh by the way, would you revolt deniers care to explain this?




    Or this?

    MICHELLE BACHMANN: And really now in Washington, I’m a foreign correspondent in enemy lines. And I try to keep everyone back here in Minnesota know exactly the nefarious activities that are taking place in Washington. [...]

    I want people in Minnesota armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax because we need to fight back. Thomas Jefferson told us, having a revolution every now and then is a good thing, and the people — we the people — are going to have to fight back hard if we’re not going to lose our country. And I think this has the potential of changing the dynamic of freedom forever in the United States
    Or this?

    Fueled by the screeds of radio hosts Michael Savage, Glenn Beck, and the lesser-known, but increasingly influential, online conspiracist Alex Jones, many gun-show attendees I spoke to were convinced Obama planned to usher in a Marxist dictatorship.

    They warned that the president's power grab would only begin with mass gun seizures. "If Obama takes away our guns," a young, .45-caliber-pistol-toting man from Reno told me, "it's just a step into trying to take away everything else."

    Indeed, in their minds, average Americans opposed to the Obama agenda would be herded into FEMA-run concentration camps by a volunteer army of glassy-eyed liberal college graduates.

    "When they start imprisoning Americans, and people start seeing that we're the enemy, then that'll make it hot," predicted one young man from Antioch sporting a button for former Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul of Texas. "People talk about a revolution," the young man continued, "an armed revolution. I think police crackdowns on individuals will tip the scales."

    Hey Einstien, since it has not quite caught your attention yet, please quote for us where in your article it says the Tea Party is planning on using firearms to overthrow the government? Because this talking out your ass at another poster, while you are lying out yours, ain't gonna get ya any gold stars.

    Your entire premise in this thread is BS, you lack the spine to address that fact and now you want to prattle at someone else about BS and BS sources and claims that have not been made? Talk about naked hypocrisy.
