    Yes you are! It's hilarious! I posted random pictures of tea party rallies and got you heated up and yelling about how I was race baiting! You are truly bothered by the fact that you belong to a white movement! You won't even address that fact with any reasoning, you simply stick the lable "economic movement" on it and jump down anyone's throat if they dare to bring up the racial demographics of your group.

    What does it matter if it's mostly white people?
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    so only 18% are "always republican"....
    Bachmann used to work on Jimmy Carter's champaign, so she hasn't always voted republican but she is a TP/Republican today...

    btw... what do you have against somebody pointing out the lack of minorities in the movement? there are a lack of minorities... I am not accusing you of being racist by pointing that out.

    That is a slice of the pie. But lets look at some other slices that do not like to display in the deli case.

    They also don't like the efforts of government on behalf of minorities over the past several decades. Too much.... what is their euphemism again?.... oh yes.... Big Government. Big Government needs to stay out of peoples lives. Which for some is another convenient euphemism for states rights and all that went with that in the Fifties and Sixties.

    Sure digsbe, I give the the concern about economics.... but that is only the part of the meal they are promoting to get the nation to buy the more unattractive dishes on their menu.

    It doesn't. but this is how the left and its sycophants operate. Infer, accuse, and suggest that the tea party is angry white folks full of racism to libel the movement as something other than what it is. so much so, that folks like you (as you posted) get a completley skewed picture of who we really are.

    What efforts on behalf of minorities?

    The Tea Party stands for fiscal responsibility and government accountability. It isn't some uber sekret conspiracy set out to convert white people into being racists by baiting with the issue of economics. Do you have proof for your accusations?

    What makes you think I am picking a fight with you because I am posting about the tea party and agree with one of your assessments of it? Most people would see that as a validation of their opinion. You opt to see it as throwing down some gauntlet.

    This is the second time in a few days now that I agree with you and you see fit to argue about me agreeing with you.

    What are you so insecure about that you attack me for agreeing with you?

    And why are you picking me out and attacking me personally instead of discussing the topic?

    Also I believe abortion is not just a social conservative standpoint, but the ultimate libertarian one as life is the ultimate thing that needs protecting.
    Have you found a way to protect life without growing government and giving the government authority over a doctor when helping a women decide if abortion is safer for her in terms of protecting her own health and life?
