    You are welcome to go back and find any post in this thread where I argued that the tea party is racist. You will find nothing. All I have done is mention a very objective and observable fact that the tea party is mostly a white movement. You are the person who has a problem with it. You are the one is primed to have a tirade if anyone even mentions race when it comes to the tea party. I have no problem with the tea party being a mostly white movement. I just find it funny that you do.

    And you have to remember, I'm not a leftist, I'm a centrist libertarian, and so my thinking is very different than the box you are trying to put me in.

    I don't think of myself being in the "white people" category for representation. The "white people" in Congress don't just represent me, but ALL AMERICANS no matter what color they are. This race crap has to stop.

    Again, you're failing to understand why tea partiers get defensive about that. Are you just choosing not to understand so that you can continue your prejudices against them?

    Re: The Tea Party Is.....

    I don't know enough about the Tea Party, or the people who make up their ranks, to make any type of judgment. Therefore I will abstain from voting.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Which was why I was pointing to a demographic and not a race. The demographic just happens to have enough white people in it that the name for the race is in the popular name for it.

Why not say "Where are all the white people????" as evidence of "racism"? Hmmmm..... It's only "racist" if it's all white people, eh? Hypocrites.

    Do you all see how moronic this argument is? Who CARES what color skin people have? We are all HUMANS no matter what skin color we have. A group of people of all different skin colors isn't "better" than a group of all one skin color. Skin color should be NO FACTOR in your opinions about the "goodness" of the group. Listen to what they SAY and DO, not what they look like. Gah!
    Don't you know Mellie that only the Evil White People can be Racist.
