    we support canidates who want:

    to lower taxes

    Reduce the size of government

    act more accountable to the people.


    Dem, republican doesnt matter.


    For example. I'd pretty much vote for someone like Corey Booker (the current mayor of Newark) for any higher office that Chris Christie wasn't running for and he's a democrat.

    But none of them have the backing of a cable news network.

    Lower taxes to what amount?

    By reducing do you mean agencies, spending, etc. Social Security, military, police, fire dept, agriculture, roads? What does that mean? What services do you want reduced?

    Act accountable to which people?

    I think these are good slogans that many people agree upon, but nobody agrees on what they actually mean in action?

    Don't forget that the initial Tea Party rallies got instant coverage and advertising by a TV host. You can choose to ignore that if you want.

    Personally I'm for a 17% flat tax.... and a balanced budget amendment, But I'll take any.

    By reducing do you mean agencies, spending, etc. Social Security, military, police, fire dept, agriculture, roads? What does that mean? What services do you want reduced?

    I think SS should be phased out, those that paid into it are entitled to get what was agreed upon. Military could be trimmed sure and I am a big military guy. Police? Yup. I think some departments have far too many toys but it depends on what they need vs want.... fire depts? again depends, roads? nah, agriculture? not sure what you mean there.


    I think the healtcare bill ought to be repealed. funding for finding out people like sex, or other pork barrelled spending. tattoo removal for crack whores, etc... I could go on for days.


    Act accountable to which people?
    Why to me and you... See Gov Christ Christie for an example, compare him to Corzine.

    I think these are good slogans that many people agree upon, but nobody agrees on what they actually mean in action?

    It's a basic philosophy that the left tries to tear apart and ridicule. fact is though you all failed with the vulgar epitaths, you all failed with the racist label, and this to, will be fail.

    Of course, putting your companies name in front of it doesn't mean you're laying claim to it or anything crazy like that, lol. Just being fair and balanced.

    It's far less dishonest that claiming coverage of said events=claiming it.

Potato caucus, seafood caucus, boat caucus, biker caucus....so why not a tea party caucus?
    As far as a Tea Party Presidential Candidate, I hope we don't have one. A third party would for sure mean another Dem president in 2012. I think Bachmann loves this country too much to do something like that.
    bachmann is a loon. i thought the appeal of the tea party was that it was "outside washington"?
