    Too bad (for you) our government is not bound by your religious beliefs.
    I'm guessing you know a great deal about this country.

    I don't think the Tea Party wants anything except smaller government that's fiscally responsible. We do seem to waste a lot of taxpayer money, and that does need to be stopped. We cannot keep going on the same path...the debt clock shows us that!

    It's time for me to call it a day. It's been fun, but I have too much to do tomorrow, and I need to be ready to face it!

    G'nite! Be well.

    While your beliefs may be a "natural" right (if you prefer "inalienable" it doesn't matter), acting on those beliefs is not. Previously, I left it off the list of "natural" rights but I'll have to think about it some more.

    Is that why they carried all those signs saying "Keep your govt hands off my Medicare"?

    More like communism and mass murder are the result of taking progressivism too seriously.
