    They want to do that huh? Nothing has come across my way of wanting to take from those who aren't rich. Our state hasn't done this, and we apparently were apart of those changes.

    Huntsman is another one who would have a shot at winning the election, and might actually make a good president, if he can get past the "RINO" label and win the nomination.

    I agree and I think your starting to see traditional republicans pushing back on the teaparty...the teaparty has no chance at long term survival inow thats only my opinion

    Not if the best they can come up with are Bachmann, Perry, Palin, and Gingrich, no they won't last long.

    Now, if they could come up with some sane candidates who had realistic ideas for cutting back the size and power of the federal government (that is what they're supposed to stand for, isn't it?) then they just might become a real power in US politics.

    You made a statement with nothing to back it up. Even when called on it you still provide nothing. Yes, that is dismissable.

    Perry every teaparty gov...Pig Christie, Rick Scott, Scott Walker, John Kasich....
    Real quick here. Kasich has little to do with the Tea Party. I have little complaints with Walker BUT he won the straw poll in 2007 even BEFORE there was a Tea Party. This is generally what most people do. Whenever a politician does something they dislike they scream "TEA PARTY TEA PARTY TEA PARTY".

    rolled into office gave tax cuts to either corporations or the wealthy or BOTH and then categorically attacked their state workers and took from them...in the case of walker all he took from his workers went for his tax cuts NOTHING went to deficit reduction
    O.K. again, nothing but accusations.

    Paul Ryans plan attacked social security and medicare and medicaid.....put huge copays in play that scaled and got higher..lowered benefits raised retirement age..and in the SAME BILL...it gave a whopping 28% reduction in corporate taxs and ONLY the top bracket richest americans...it abolished the capitol gains and Abolished the inheritance tax...it supposedly cut some tax loopholes but the cbo said it didnt cut the deficit anywhere near what he said...it was a candy store bill for the rich at the expense of the middleclass workers and the poor..
    Attacked? These programs must be reformed. We have no choice. This is an example of being extreme? Facing fiscal facts is extreme? Perhaps you do believe so. So did many others to get us 10 trillion dollars in debt.

    Here we go again.....Gingrich has had little to nothing to do with the Tea Party. Matter of fact, he's slammed them. Facts seems to mean little to those who simply want to attack.

    Ah.....To the right? That's a completely different accusation and even then not true. How is taking a position that the government had no business giving investment banks that created this mess billions of dollars a "far right" position?

    Before it was done it would have been a position that liberals would have taken.

    I'm still looking at Perry, but I know I'll never vote for Romney. He's a moderate in the worse sense of the word. No core values or convictions and willing to do whatever it takes to get elected.

    Not to mention, I'm not sure he's that great of a candidate as far as "electability" goes. The base doesn't like the guy. Period. And I'm not sure he's all that appealing to moderates and independents, other than being somene not named Obama. He's not particularly charismatic. Romney might beat Obama due to being a fairly boring, unobjectionable candidate facing an incumbent who hasn't lived up to expectations. Then again, running a blah sack of crap and saying he's not the other guy didn't work for the Democrats in '04 despite all the baggage Bush had.

    Perry may be polarizing, but at least he inspires passion.
    Slipping into madness is good for the sake of comparison - Unknown.
