    "Obummer's" LOLOLOLOLOLOL!! if you're 12..

    501(c)(3) orgs aren't supposed to be involved in elections. If he "stole" the election by denying tax exempt status to orgs not supposed to be involved in them, then denying them charity status was the proper thing to do!

    It's stuff like this that makes me disgusted with party animals. The Tea Party is irrelevant, they became social conservatives or religious conservatives or whatever. It is my opinion when the Tea party joined the Republican Party, they ceased to exist as a separate entity.

    As for the Debt, as for party animals, the Democrats ranted, screamed and hollered about it during Reagan and Bush I. The Republicans never worried about it then. Change president's to Bill Clinton, now it was the Democrats saying the debt and deficits didn't matter, the Republicans changed their stripes to the Democrats mantra during Reagan and Bush I. Along comes Bush II, both parties change, switch values once more. To the GOP deficits and debt doesn't matter, to Democrats it became their calling card. How dare the Republicans run up the debt, one certain senator from Illinois at the time called it unpatriotic.

    Then comes Obama, each party switches sides once again. Now it's the Democrats who are spouting the mantra that deficits and debt doesn't matter, the Republicans are bashing Obama all over Hades for adding 10 trillion to the debt. Now Trump, each replaces the other once again, they switch values on this issues. All of this switching proves to me neither party has any core values. They just jump on and take whatever side of any issue or policy that will give them a political advantage. Neither stands for anything outside of either retaining power or regaining power.

    Their stances on the debt and deficits prove this. If either party had any core values, they would be consistent on this and other issues regardless of who is president. Either be working hard to eliminate the debt, at least bring it under control or spending like a fish with no regards to the debt and deficits whatsoever. Either one would be against raising the debt during during Reagan, Bush I, Bill Clinton, Bush II, Obama and Trump or be saying the debt and deficits don't matter during all those presidents I just mention. Not against when the other party holds the presidency, but for raising the debt when your party holds the presidency.

    Bottom line, neither party has a leg to stand on when it comes to complaining about the debt and deficits. No core values here. Just political expediency.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    That's why in two years, after complaining about it for over 6 years, the GOP came up with a WORSE plan than Obamacare and no longer are pushing repeal and replace. They just want to repeal because they can't come up with anything BETTER. Their answer to Obamacare now IS "Jesus is my insurance". Republicans are INCAPABLE or coming up with something better. They are INCOMPETENT.

    We all know what the Tea Party was.

    That’s why we’re enjoying watching the same people who showed up at “Taxed Enough Already” rallies with signs like “debt is death”, sitting silently, and looking the other way, as yet another one of right wing talk radio’s heroes runs up record breaking levels of debt.

    Taxed enough already didn’t mean a a thing to most of the people at those rallies (I know, I was there).

    But the fact that a black man was in the White House was a constant theme, even of often expressed in code words.

    Yeah, yeah, right, the left only cares about debt when there's a Republican in the White House. I was there, too, and no, the TEA party movement was actually started by an economist, so don't bother playing the race card.
