    Re: CNN Poll: Unfavorable view of tea party on the rise

    This whole "who is the tea party" discussion seems to be dominated by people who have a house filled with children they gave birth to but want to keep insisting on their own personal virginity. They proudly want to wave their tea bags in the air and claim ownership of the movement but at the same time don't dare brand them as being on the far right because in their own twisted minds they are firmly representing the great center of American thought.

    Yes, they pretty much hate the federal government, at least those not in a military uniform.
    Yes, they would take a meat axe to most of federal government spending, if it does not involve killing foreign people.
    Yes, the very prospect of shutting down the most powerful government on the face of the earth gets them all weak in the knees and swoony.
    Yes, taxes - especially income taxes, and the people who collect them are the most evil of all government bastards.
    Yes, they would personally repeal getting rid of most of the political advancements of the 20th century.
    Yes, they are the only people in America who have read the US Constitution and understand what it really means.
    Yes, some of them they have been against almost every single public policy iniative designed to help minorities for the past half century and even longer.
    Yes, some of them they carry signs which are a weird combnination of the outright offensive to the outright stupid.

    But do NOT call them right wing because that is an offensive term.

    For those of who in the tea party business and who deny you are right wingers, can you take a minute to explain to us all just who the heck in a right winger these days if the tea party movement is not?

    lets make this multiple choice

    a) gross stupidity
    b) failing to recognize their own economic self interest
    c) ideology has overloaded the rest of their brain producing a type of disfunctional political thinking
    d) all of the above

    yea I know, but they did make it seem that the plan was going to hurt seniors in the long run.

    I liked the idea of a plan where the wealthier seniors paid more, the states had more control etc. However, maybe his reform plan needs some more reforming. I still think Ryan is on the right track and I'm proud of him for being so bold.

    Sounds kind of like a redistribution of the wealth plan... but I know it can't be that because you're a capitalist.. how bizarre, how bizarre...

    Incorrect as usual. We believe in limited government as our founders did.

    Yes, they would take a meat axe to most of federal government spending, if it does not involve killing foreign people.
    That's retarded. We are for across the board cuts, including the military.

    Yes, the very prospect of shutting down the most powerful government on the face of the earth gets them all weak in the knees and swoony.
    This isn't even worthy of a response. the Dems are the ones who want to shut down the government, for they think it will have the effect that the last one did, this is also why idiots are now mouth foaming over the tea party again, dem talking points say "blame the tea party".

    Yes, taxes - especially income taxes, and the people who collect them are the most evil of all government bastards.

    Link or are you just getting overly emotional and hyperbolic again?


    Reasonable taxation and reasonable spending.


    Yes, they would personally repeal getting rid of most of the political advancements of the 20th century.

    OMG, will you seriously stop with the emotional nonsense?


    Yes, they are the only people in America who have read the US Constitution and understand what it really means.
    Strawman.


    Yes, some of them they have been against almost every single public policy iniative designed to help minorities for the past half century and even longer.

    Bull****, now you are outright lying... Affirmative action does not help minorities, its so racists on the left can help who they feel is infierior to them as a pity party.


    Yes, some of them they carry signs which are a weird combnination of the outright offensive to the outright stupid.
    So what? Are you suggesting the left has never done this? traitors like code pink demonstrate otherwise.


    But do NOT call them right wing because that is an offensive term.

    "right wing extremists" please don't move goal posts, it's embarrassing....

    Some are right wing, some are libertarian, and some are even democrat/left wing.....


    For those of who in the tea party business and who deny you are right wingers, can you take a minute to explain to us all just who the heck in a right winger these days if the tea party movement is not?

    Right wing tends to be more socially conservative. the tea party has no stance on social issues. Just fiscal and governmental. how many months has this been explained to you now?

    Re: CNN Poll: Unfavorable view of tea party on the rise

    Rev, you remind me of the first Indiana Jones movie where he says he simply makes it all up as he goes along. Your answers - denying the very obvious realities of the beliefs of many tea party participants and spokespersons - border on the funny stuff Jon Stewart says when imitating Glen Beck and his room filled with delusional writings on chalk boards.

    The beautiful thing about the tea party - and the real only useful utilitarian function they have served to date - is to clear up where the vast majority of libertatians are on the political spectrum. I contended for years that the crux of libertarianism is basically a far right ideology on the really important things. They screamed and yelled just like you are doing here and said that they were not. But then the libertarians found out that what everyone else knew - they could not elect a dog catcher in even the lowest voter turn out election so they glommed onto this whole tea party thing like lice on a mangey cur. Now they are firmly on the right and it confirms what I felt all along.

    Your own posts here on many subjects and your proud embracement of both libertarianism and the tea party movement are an excellent example of this. Thank you for daily providing ample evidence of the far right nature of the tea party.

    what is far right about being against DADT, DOMA, the Drug war, and corporate welfare?


    Please by all means, back up your nonsense with some actual facts.... I'll wait.

    Re: CNN Poll: Unfavorable view of tea party on the rise

    Most of these issues are not crucial in the radical right wing war on working people. And so what? Some libs want to smoke dope and get laid with whoever and whatever. I could not care less since I care precious little about those issues and they mean nothing compared to the political and economic war being waged by the right against working class people in America. That is just meaningless smoke and mirrors used to distract from the real issues the folks like the Koch Bros really care about.

    Corporate welfare... sure.... but I have never seen tea party folks seem to care about it. And precious little from their mouthpieces in Congress either.

    Libertarians who embrace the wackiest of right wing position on economics, minority rights, taxation and other issues think they can pretend that even though they look like a duck and quack like a duck and walk like a duck they are something else because they want to smoke dope and play fireman sliding downs somebodys pole. Sorry - but it don't cut it with me.
