    For a group that was "extreme across the board" it shouldn't be hard to tell us specifically why you feel a good handle of them I just listed aren't extreme.

    If you want to concede that those aren't extreme, you could list me the ones you do think are extreme and see if your lists and what I can generate seems to suggest extremism "across the board" of their candidates.
    They are extremist because they dont buy into the philosophy that its OK for the fed to continue spend 1.5 TRILLION more every year than what they take in in taxes. its extreme to believe the government should be fiscally responsible.

    Im an extremist too.

    No my right wing views are indeed right wing, my libertarian views are libertarian. I never argued against this.




    I'm not pissed, amused actually at how easy it is to embarrass you, boo, what if, and others.




    YOU HAVEN'T "PRESENTED" JACK.... seriously, you say "extreme right wing views" but can't name them.





    When you lie about me, you libel me.





    Nah, I no longer expect any integrity from partisan hacks. It's not in your nature.


    Tell you what. Tell me who are the right wingers here at DP who are not "extreme right wingers"

    Name 5...


    Point is, I value the views of all sides, and can name numerous posters in fact most here as not "extremist" yourstar, redress, CC, among others. See I get along with 99% of folks here, it's true believers like you who need to make themselves feel better by lying about my position and failing to back up said lie.





    you hazlnut, bubba, what if, and boo do not make up "people".


    You make up a consortium of far left ideological politcal hacks.




    Still waiting for you to list my "extreme right wing positions".
    Ummm.

    No.

    I stated my perception of you.

    Now you angrily express your perception of me in retaliation.

    Doing to me what you protest being done to you.

    Before you saw my explanation of my comment.

    Awesomeness indeed.

    You ignored my post, I brought it up, now that you answered it, I am more than happy to let it go, unless you like being in that company.



    edit to add, I did ask you some follow up questions.

    I never said they did.

    I said they coopted it in a failed attempt to rebrand the Republican Party.

    Which turned into a movement in its own right.

    And has been a thorn in the side of the mainstream Republican party ever since.

    I have said this consistently.

    "Extreme" used to describe the Tea Party, "annoys" me because it's just another lie about the TP. If anyone is extreme, it's this administation and their out of control spending. Their total lack of concern about our financial situation is mind boggling. Obama is "extremely" disconnected from the American people.
    There is an "extreme" left at work in this country. The likes ofGeorge Soros, Francis Fox Piven, Unions, socialist and communist orgs, are all part of it, but ignored by the media. The Koch brother on the other hand are a danger because they give to a party that wants us to return to our constitution and fiscal responsibility. Fox news is extreme because they have "demonized" the Union protests while standing with the Tea Party and conservative governors who are trying to balance their budgets.
    It would all be funny if it wasn't so infuriating and serious. I just hope conservatives and the TP continues to have a voice on cable, the internet, and talk radio.
    We must stay vigilent when it comes to the 1st amendment. If people like Pelosi, Bernie Sanders, and others in congress have their way and "reform" the media, we may be stuck with al jazeera for all our information.

    I think you have been influenced by some unintelligent people who put thier politics before rational thought. Get to know me you will see, I hold some socially conservative values personally but am politically libertarian, i.e. I may personally believe in marriage is between man and a woman, but it's none of my business nor is it my right to impose this view upon others as it deprives them of thier human rights. Which is why for example I support the government only register "civil unions" and get out of the marriage business all together.

    I also don't believe every left winger is an "extremist" like some here on the left do of the right (this thread). You got caught up in haymarket's typical game of making false claims about me then running scared when asked to back it up. Like I said, don't hitch your wagon to that is my advice.
    Ok, truce.

    But I am going to point out your responses to me IN THIS THREAD posted by you in between the time of my original post and my response to your response

    Pretty hot and aggressive, considering that I may have been away from the board at some point during my day.

    So maybe my perception wasn't totally off base?

    But you weren't AFK, you were responding to later posts, and again after I reposted it. What perception? Do only extreme right wingers demand folks back up their claims about other posters?
