    As much as it shocks me, I actually agree with Tigger on these points. The Tea Party has thus far been long on rhetoric and short on action.
    I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was wedding between the religious fundamentalists and political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it. ~ Billy Graham in Parade magazine February 1, 1981.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Do you have an example where they have taken on these positions at all? Seems to me that the majority fall into one of two catagories. They either complain that they do not take up their pet causes or they get blamed for anything anyone doesn't like.

    Their beef is with the debt. What that has to do with guns, I have no clue. I don't imagine they would have a big problem with the DoEd if they would be funded to fit into a balanced budget.

    Welcome to democracy. People will either complain that nothing is getting done or they will complain because something is getting done.

    So in your mind for them to be good leaders they have to just run congress for their PET cause and screw the rest of what the country wants....it does NOT work that way perry....and it shouldnt
    Theres many issues in this country and its not just cutting taxs for the rich and corporations.

    Of course it does and should. If you believe that the debt is a bad thing it's absolutely correct to not vote for more debt.

    Sorry, I've made it clear that I have no desire to discuss your biases. I notice nobody provided any of the examples I asked for.

    We can agree that they fought hard against raising the debt ceiling, though. Correct?
    The US is an odd ship. The captain yells out when he sees obtacles , but 535 individual propellers do the steering.

    I disagree with tigger and you. Since the tea party has been elected go congress (as they were instrumental in our latest election), they have done lots with their representatives. Unfortunately, their hard line is not good for a country that needs to get stuff done in a timely manner.

    Right now i am seeing accusations of liberalism slung at all of them.
    How are we defining conservatism? The classical type built upon small government and no state building or the new type which is big government, big spending, big deficit, big war and big brother?
