    My sense is that past successful third party movements have been based on specific agendas; e.g., Ross Perot's campaign for fiscal responsibility. The Tea Party is based almost entirely on rage: rage about politics, rage about change, rage about rage. And as a movement based on emotion, the Tea Party really can't consolidate and press for any specific agenda that its own people care to agree on. Instead, they would rather get together and just be angry. It can be satisfying, no doubt, but, I think that movement heads in no particular direction at all.
    It's no use discussing the issue with you because you've already made up your mind. In my opinion, you are 180 degrees off base in all your assertions.

    I think you and your liberal buddies will be quite surprised by the strength of the tea party movement over the next seven months.

    The term tea baggers originated by journalists at CNN and MSNBC when they were covering the Tea Party protests. The group does not refer to themselves as tea baggers and most take offense when being called that. The use of tea bags is to parallel the Boston Tea Party and how they rebelled because of taxation without representation.

    I am sorry for suggesting that everyone knows what the term tea bagging means. But regardless it is a lewd sexual practice and it was first used as a joke by the left to delegitimize the movement and poke fun at it.
    Ok so you are saying that refering to Tea PARTY protestors is like refering to Democrats and Liberals as "socialist" and "anti- Ameican" because someone may not agree with their view. ? So if it an insult and it is delegimitizing to refer to Tea PARTIERS Tea Baggers the very same must be the truth is one calls Democrats or Liberals "Socialists. "

    I get what you are saying.

    We need to debate between oursleves and among ourselves without using terms such as Tea BAGGERS or 'Socialist" unless we are actually debating with real Tea BAGGERS or Socialists.

    Now tha sounds like a great idea to me -

    Let us start that right here anD right now !!! OK ??? DEAL OR NO DEAL ???

    Not bad turn outs...but hardly the HUGE movement that supporters wanted to believe they were.
    Ross Perots reform movement had more people involved.

    You got the part I bolded correct.

    Finally...you are correct in your last paragraph. America is not the same that it was 10 years ago. Our integrity and morals were mortgaged by an administration that took us to the level of our enemies. We lost our way and our standing amongst our allies. Thankfully we are on the way to recovery.
    We have stopped the downward spiral and in 7 years when Obama's second term is finished, hopefully America's standing will be restored.
    The FOX "News " Network got the Tea Partiers out there. My neighbor who prides himself at not completeing high school and not being able to read admitted that he saw Fox news and they motivated him to go out and join Tea PARTY PROTESTS. He cannot read so I beleive him.

    The Tea PARY movements ( ther are actually more than one strain od them ) will indeed to formidable over the next few years or until 2012. Yet if my neighbor who admits that he cannot read the issues and follows only what he is told will that mean that there is long life there ?

    My belief is that many followers are poorly informed about history, law, and the Constitution of the US no matter how often or lowdly they spout out phrases.

    My neighbor told me that he goes becasue he is "sick of taxation without representation". So he is 130 years late in joining that fight !!!lol

    It is sad that the Tea Baggers who try to tell us that they are somehow "patriots " fail to behave in an intelligent, sane, or human manner.
    If Tea Baggers continue to behave like that they will eventually reflect upon the Tea BAG movement and sane humans will eventaullay reduce support of the Tea BAG movement.


    Unless you are stating you like to have balls rubbed on your chin, you are being vulgar to smear your oppostion.


    which is it my friend.
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    Yeah, I'm sure every single person in the Tea Party movement is just like your neighbor....

    Sounds like you need to move to a classier neighborhood if someone with no high school diploma and can't read can afford to move there. Surely there's a nicer trailer park somewhere close by.

    I'll bet your neighbor can't spell either can he?????

    The Teabaggers, far-right represent everyone's opposition...

    The Teabaggers, far-right represent opposition to thought, reason, and pragmatism...

    The Teabaggers, far-right represent the most vulgar element of our society -- the don't respect elections or the constitution...

    The Teabaggers only know anger, hate, and ignorance...

    The Teabaggers are a monster created by opportunists like Beck, Bachmann, and Palin... The three stooges. Every vulgar act of racism and homophobia committed by a Teabagger is on them...

    Thanks for the great example of "anger, hate, and ignorance...".
