    Having said that, I will say that the Tea Party seems to have evolved since 2009 when it first came onto the national stage. I remember hearing of the initial protest and agreeing partially with the message. We panty-waist liberals typically don't like war, so we had been yelling about the cost of Iraq and Afganistan for years. And some pundits like Rachel Maddow and Thom Hartmann harped on the rising deficit since before Bush was elected. Now, it does seem that the Tea Party, at least for members in congress, are struggling with the established GOP members for their say in the legislative process. I think it is fair to say that there is a power struggle inside congress and it is unclear who is winning.

    The other change I see is that the Tea Party began as a largely grass root mission, but I think it has been co-opted by those with other agenda's in mind, like the Koch Bro. and Dick Armey.
    The koch brothers are good for the movement in my opinion. We need the money and they are libertarians. If I'm not mistaken they have even backed dems. The only bad thing is the media spin, yet they totally ignore the left's sugar daddy (George Soros)

    I prefer overly simplistic to this
    How Long is the US Tax Code?
    By the way, if you go to the US Government Printing Office ( U.S. Government Printing Office Home Page ), you can order a complete set of Title 26 of the US Code of Federal Regulations (that's the part written by the IRS), all twenty volumes of it, at the bargain price of $974, shipping included.
    According to the US Government Printing Office, it's 13,458 pages in total. The full text of Title 26 of the United States Code (the part written by Congress--available for an additional $179) is a mere 3,387 printed pages, bringing the adjusted gross page count to 16,845. The number of words has been left as an exercise for the student.
    Way bigger than the bible or War and Peace.
    It's time to burn it. I'm surprised anyone who can afford to pay a tax attorney has to pay any taxes at all with all the loopholes allowed to special interest groups. That's why I'm all for Ryans proposal to lower corporate taxes at the same time he does away with the loopholes. Revenue would shoot through the roof.

    You do understand that technically a fetus is a parasite, defined as an organism?

    Just thought the other side of the debate should come in.


    It's disgusting and wrong to say that. A baby is not sucking the life out of his mother. Her body is made to provide for him in and outside of womb. The baby needs her alive and healthy to give birth and provide for him once he comes into this world.
    The only way an unborn baby can be a parasite is in the cases of parasitic twins.

    Re: The Tea Party Is.....

    I don't think that people know who the tea party is.. I went to a rally last year and I was with several friends from the Libertarian Party, Most of the people I met at the rally were Fiscal Conservatives and Social Moderates. I shot a couple of pictures at the rally, it was a fun day.

    there were so many people that it took an hour to walk the length of the reflection pool to the lincoln memorial







    There was some Social Conservative Tea Party Members there though.

    No, just saying it's completely normal that since most blacks vote democrat, and most democrats do not support the tea party, that the tea party would only have a small percentage of black supporters. However, times are changing and I think we can look forward to more and more blacks leaving the Democratic party and joining the conservatives.
