    Tea Partiers fighting against Ron Paul re-election?

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85j5-rcUyNg"]YouTube- Tea Partiers fighting against Ron Paul re-election[/ame]

    The Washington Independents David Weigel talks with Rachel Maddow about how the new Tea Party movement differs from the 2007 Ron Paul movement to which so much of the Tea Party owes its roots.

    Tea partiers are right wing nut jobs and aren't even remotely libertarian.

    What a broad categorization. "Tea partiers" aren't all the same.

    Re: Tea Partiers fighting against Ron Paul re-election?

    The only thing I see so far is that its been hijacked by the republicans and Glenn beck. Dont get me wrong I want the republicans to, Re-emerge as the party of," AMERICANISM- National manufactureing". I dont want them doing the same thing that, "Ralph Reed Done to the evangelicals",- Make them a,"PAC".
    The reason is because we need institutions free from ,"The two party illness", currently affecting the Health of this nation. My God the partys become the TICK of populisim. Ick, we are; parasites of, grass roots activisim. Void of any
    original substance of our own. So, OK Tea partiers. on 3.-.1.2.3. NO! To the
    disease of incumbency.

    That's true, but their politics still suck.

    Tell me, what differentiates them from the current Republican Party?

    Sometimes nothing, sometimes a lot. Again, there is no one single entity that is "them".

    EDIT: Nor is there one single entity that is "the current Republican Party".

    My best guess is that America is fighting against more taxes just like back in the Boston Tea Party. We just don't want government spending and expecting us to pay pay for what bills are passed where we have no say.

    Hence the rallies and the protestors from all walks of life and all party affiliation.

    We may not agree on everything but I bet we could find some common ground.

    A large percentage of this bunch that yells and hollars and carries on about socialism and big government, does not even know what socialism really is "keep your goddamn government hands out of my Medicare" and no has idea what their government actually spends their money on. For that matter, in many cases its not even their money, as they don't even make enough money to pay federal income taxes.

    Thus these willfully ignorant dolts are running primary opponents against the poster-child for a small and limited government.

    As a libertarian, I strongly favor tax cuts; but currently, I'll oppose them until we get spending under control. So until then, the best remedy for our budget crisis is to cut spending and to cut it deep. Once we've brought spending under control and made a significant dent in our debt, then we can discuss tax cuts; but not before then.

    So if the Tea Party set wishes to do something constructive, they should drop the tax cut bit and adopt spending cuts.

    ..and hey, how's it going? is PF still going strong?

    I agree with you on getting spending under control. It's first and foremost next to creating jobs right now.

    PF is okay. Lots of new members. I miss some people here that never post over there
    We may not agree on everything but I bet we could find some common ground.
