    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.


    Well more than one poster has called me a racist in the past simply for supporting the ideals of the tea party. It's a blatant and rephrenesible lie, that starts out as "innocently" as Criticaltho0ughts post #3.

    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?
    I believe they were called civil rights laws and programs.

    no. Then again the tea party, nor libertarianism is a death pact.


    I think we can spend the money on educating folks on the value of life, while reducing spending on everything from corporate welfare, to DOD spending.

    Add:

    Libertarians promote individual liberty and seek to minimize the role of the state. The majority of libertarians consider a right to abortion as part of their general support for individual rights, especially in regard to what they consider to be a woman's right to control her body

    ^ Doug Bandow, The politics of envy: statism as theology, p. 280, Transaction Publishers, 1994 ISBN 1560001712, 9781560001713 Quote: "the majority of libertarians are pro-choice"...

    ^ Marc Jason Gilbert, The Vietnam War on campus: other voices, more distant drums, Greenwood Publishing Group, 2001, p 35 ISBN 0275969096, 9780275969097 Quote: "On the whole, however, centrist and conservative libertarians usually espoused expected libertarian views on such issues as abortion, where the individual’s right to be free from coercion by others (either individuals or the state) too precedent over questions of morality or religion."

    ^ George F. Johnston, Abortion from the religious and moral perspective: an annotated bibliography, Greenwood Publishing Group, 2003 page 160, ISBN 0313314020, 9780313314025 Quote:"Most Libertarians, on the grounds that a woman has the right to control her own body, support legalized abortion."

    ^ John Micklethwait, Adrian Wooldridge, The Right Nation: Conservative Power in America, Penguin, 2004, p. 252 ISBN 1594200203, 9781594200205 Quote: “Libertarians support abortion as part of their general support for individual rights.

    ^ Charles W. Dunn, J. David Woodard, American conservatism from Burke to Bush: an introduction, Madison Books, 1991, p 41, ISBN 0819180696, 9780819180698 Quote: "...libertarians would say that the government should not regulate abortion since that is a personal matter."

    ^ Dr. Mary Ruwart, Ask Dr. Ruwart, Advocates for Self Government Quote: "The predominant 'pro-choice' viewpoint, as expressed in the current version of the Libertarian Party platform, is backed by principled arguments as well. Libertarians believe that no one should be enslaved to support another, including a pregnant woman 'enslaved' to carry a fetus she does not want. A woman's body is her property, to do with as she wishes."

    Look, I have a youtube video too.
    Also, the term teabagger is offensive and crass.

    race baiting. not your first time either.
    Why does it matter that the Tea Party is mostly dissatisfied white people? Why does it matter that it is a movement of white people?

    I don't agree with the Tea Party's fundamental beliefs but it's amusing that some people have to point out the racial make up of the group, as if that makes a big difference.
    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.
