He was a hardcore social conservative and a fiscal moron.
    That's why I won't have anything to do with the TP. Fix the SOCIAL issues and most of the Fiscal issues go away. It doesn't work the same way in reverse.

    The teaparty has had no impact in changing americans beliefs...the numbers remain the same.

    he bad economy, a change in presidents, bailouts, health care, the Tea Party and now another presidential cycle, you name it. Still, the basic fiscal and social ideologies of U.S. voters remain largely unchanged.

    While I agree with you on the social issues being the root cause of our overall economic breakdown, we don't have enough time to fix the social problems while the big government fools are bankrupting the Nation as we speak. The TP movement is singularly focused on forcing the politicians to get our fiscal house in order. You have to start somewhere.

    27% Say They
    Ironic:

    "Rasmussen subscribers can log in to read the rest of this article" . . . OR . . . "Become a member and get full access to all articles and polls starting at $3.95/month"
    Not debating something I can't read, research and verify.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    True, you do have to start somewhere. I just think they're doing it from the wrong end.

    This has more to do with the politics and realities of budgetary and fiscal policies than anything else. At the very least, dems have called for raising taxes to cover the spending, whereas so-called conservatives in Congress have for the most part encouraged cutting taxes but spend anyway.

    I don't really see how the one follows the other.

    The illegitimacy rate is a big problem, but I see it as a social issue rather than a political issue. Do you want to make premarital sex illegal?

    Sorry Vance but your statement is factually incorrect. Teaparty supported and elected govs attacked public workers viciously...they blamed their state woes on the workers and at the same time stripping their workers they either did or attempted to give tax cuts to the rich and corporations....NONE has created any jobs yet in any of those states.
    The first thing House elected teaparty supported reps did was attack social security and medicare...ryan put together a teaparty backed plan that was a candystore for the rich and corporations at everyone elses expense....Since the election in Nov the teaparty has lost tons of their support...and they will lose more. Just look at this primary...everyone of their far right n utter candidates has been soundly REJECTED by moderate republicans and independents....
