Well done, but can you show me one policy that the tea party as a whole supports that attacks another individuals personal freedoms, of any race, colour, or creed?
This is the same argument that black people are racist against white candidate's because 97% of them voted for Obama. Discuss policies and thier effects and leave the ignorant finger pointing out of the argument. It isn't healthy for either side.
Are you familiar with the term Blue Dog? How many Blue Dogs are there in congress....how many of the Blue Dog Party are there? How many Libertarian congressmen are there?
However given their goal was to ELECT people who were fiscal CONSERVATIVES, it's understandable that most tea party candidates would run on the republican ticket since they are the only federally viable conservative leaning party. They could go libertarian, but note I said electable. They could go democratic, but note I said fiscally conservative.
The tea party movement in and of itself is not a national political party but rather a political movement, more akin to the anti-war movement than the republicans/democrats
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Actions speak for them.
And to answer your question, I'm in America. And to answer your other question, yes, I've hear of blue dogs, just don't recall seeing them registered anywhere as a political party.The "Tea Party" Is Now Official in Florida
An Orlando lawyer named Frederic O'Neal has registered the Tea Party with the office of the Florida Secretary of State, Politico reports, and intends to run candidates against both Republicans and Democrats in state and national races.
The Tea Party has been registered with the state since August and is one of 32 minor political parties certified in Florida, Politico reported.
I see people were too busy discussing how many of this or that race were or are in the "Tea Party" (among other truly important and thought-provoking subjects) to respond to my previous post (like, 225 posts ago? In only 2 days?) that, personally, I thought was a reasonable addition to the discussion.
So, I’ll quote myself…
Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller
How do you make love to a papaya?
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody 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.
