    I started not to vote racist, but if eveyone you know in it is a racist, how can you vote no?

    There have been at least two major tea party gatherings at the State Capital in Lansing since I have been working there and both times I spent a great deal of time talking to the participants. Many seemed like good and decent folk who simply had a different view on things. Not my view by any stretch - but I saw no real evidence of any racism as a group policy. I have seen hand made signs I would label as racist at tea party gatherings and know people like my own brother-in-law who is a racist and involved in the group.

    Let me guess--you don't really keep up with Matthews and are also too lazy to look for yourself. I'm not jumping to a conclusion: I reached a conclusion quite some time ago, and nope, it wasn't because of the tingle up Matthew's leg.

    Most generally when citing a quote from someone else, the poster provides a reference.

    I haven't heard that the Tea Party wants to cut someones rights (that would be racist if they did).

    Again, I'm sorry if you're unfamiliar with the attribution of the infamous "tingle up the leg" quote, which has been widely cited for years. You could, of course, just Google to verify.

    I beleive the Tea Party wants to get rid of the Public School system and the department of Education, and provide schooling on a very local level. This would insure socio0-economic stratification for generations. This is the first and clearest example I could think of right off hand.

    I was not talking about your quote, that is common knowledge. I was talking about the OP.
