    Does this mean that Boehner COULD BE GONE in 2011?

        and the Republicans are of course a beacon of rationale, an olympic torch of democracy, a fine example of a caring and understanding government, a moral example to the world of how to negotiate with other countries, implement fair trade and learn about different cultures without firing a bullet.......

        I could go on but I can't be bothered.

          I don't want a "caring" government.  I want it chopped back to it's little tiny proper size and shape and cost, and I want it freaking OUT OF MY LIFE.   

          We've had 70 years of disaster from you leftists, and it's time you admitted absolute failure.   Despite this nation having in excess of 150 TRILLION dollars in debt and legal future obligations by our federal and state governments, all you can think of is how to spend more and how to try to extract more from the people, who are bled dry.   

          You have killed almost every industry we had to produce wealth, you have run off investment and you have slapped down every effort to improve the country's economy.   Well, we the people are officially sick and tired of your complete and utter incompetence. 

          I want every federal handout program GONE.   That includes Social Security, too.   Gone.   History.    You on the left have tried to make government "fix" every need or want people have, and all it has managed to do is bankrupt the nation, and NOT A SINGLE THING has ever been 'fixed'.   

          You've had your run, you've proven what we all know - leftism is irrational stupidity.   Now get out and go away and let the adults clean up your juvenile mess.

            LOL!  What a hilarious rant.  I hope all Tea Party candidates campaign on abolishing Social Security.  And let's not forget the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Civil Rights Act.  Get rid of 'em all!  Go, Tea Party!

            LOL!

                  This kind of childish oversimplification is why you're losing every argument.

                    That is not an oversimplification.  It is a representation of Rand Paul's position; that is, until he backed off when he realized how unpopular it is.  At this point, the Tea Party has only a few candidates in the public eye, so it makes perfect sense to discuss their positions as a representation of the Tea Party.  They are, after all, the ones who were elected in the primaries, presumably by the Tea Party voters.

              That's amazing.   You really have no comprehension of the TEA Party at all.   You know, the federal government was given very few things to do. .  Defend the nation, prevent trade squabbles between states, and DEFEND THE RIGHTS OF THE PEOPLE.    That last one being the biggest reason for having ANY government, which is to defend the rights of the people.   

              Which is not done by ponzi schemes that suck up 15% of everything you earn, but provide almost nothing in return, or regulations covering toilet tank sizes and what kind of filament must be in your light bulb, or NOT in your light bulb, whatever the case may be.    It was not to own 20, 40, 60 or 90% of any state's land, nor was it to be used to lock away the people's resources from them at the behest of elitist morons.   

              As I said, your run is over.   Everything you stand for is a 100% failure.  Time to give up and let the adults start making serious decisions for a change.

                Well, I'm looking at who the Tea Party put up as their candidates.  What better way to evaluate what they stand for than to see who they vote for?

                1. weholdthesetruths profile image60
                  weholdthesetruthsposted 6 years ago in reply to this

                  Yup, and they vote for people who are NOT the morons who put us in this mess.   

                  You probably measure them on how well they conform to YOUR failed agenda.   The TEA Party is more interested in how well they represent what DOES work.   

                  Frankly, I don't care a flipping bit if this person belongs to some odd religion you never heard of, or is gay, or publicly says we shouldn't masturbate.    None of that matters in the slightest, because those are not government issues.     And I don't expect that any person who is not some "elitist" is going to manage to run for office without ending up being financially strapped.   DC is a "rich boys club" and we see what that has gotten us.   So they can't pay their taxes?   Well, welcome to the club.   Fill Congress with them, I say, and give the people some relief.

                    Interesting.  I specifically stated I don't care about her financial situation, and yet the majority of your response is about that.  Regarding masturbation, great, I'm glad you personally don't care a flip.  I merely stated that many people will find her video off-putting and will think she's loony.

                    Yes, duh, I do measure candidates based upon what I personally believe and want to happen in government.  Don't you?  As for failed agenda, it's debatable who's agenda is the worst failure, don't you think?

            Gosh, we did this in only two years!  I don't remeber things going that great for the 8 preceding years before Obama got elected!  Perhaps Palin will suit you better!  LOLOL!

          weholdthesetruthsposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          It's ok that you can't be bothered.    You haven't anything to say anyway.   I hope the Democrat spend 50 million trying to defeat Boehner.    I hope they spend every other dime they have trashing Palin.    That way, they don't have money to waste on trying to win anyting important.   So what if Boehner goes away?   I don't care.   He's not all that staunch of a Constitutionalist, and nowhere near the fighter I'd like to see in opposition to Obama.   

          Let the Demcrats continue to be stupid, by thinking that the TEA Party and the revolt against them is "person led" or focused on the agenda of individuals.   It isn't.   Go ahead, waste their resources on a fight that will accomplish nothing in defending their power or agenda.    They are stupid to think that a personal war against Boehner is going to mean anything.   It's the ideas that are winning, not the politician.

    I predict a TOTAL win for Democrats. Especially since the tea-bags idea of freedom is "legislating morality". ahahahaa of course it is!!!

    We'll keep taking your money while we tell all you bad little boys and girls what not to do.

    What a joke they are.
    Why don't they support Alan Grayson in his crusade to audit the Fed???
    Support Obama in giving $$ to small businesses?
    Money for r & d.
    Support Arne Duncan and the Obama administration on Race to the Top education money?
    Fund new energy ideas?
    Keep the unemployment going until the jobs pick up.

    We are paying for the cleaning, rebuilding and maintanance of the neo-con wars,started by W and Chinless, you mean to say you can't spare money for our own citizens???

    "Despite this nation having in excess of 150 TRILLION dollars in debt..."

    Folks - this is wrong by a factor of over TEN. It's a good example of just how out of touch the teabaggers are with reality. The national debt is a serious issue - at 13.5 Trillion.   A huge chunk of that is the Bush Tax Cuts for the wealthy - a trillion dollar giveaway - and the Iraq war - which was another trillion.

    One move to cut the deficit - and eventually the debt will be to let the tax cuts expire for those making over 250K per year, the top 2%. You would think that kind of rational budget move would enjoy broad support. Not from the GOP or the teabaggers. They want to scream about the debt, much of which conservatives created. (There was a budget surplus under Clinton.) And at the same time - out the other face of the 2-faced monster, they want to preserve low taxes for the rich.

    No kidding!!
    They told us that the tax give-away would "create jobs".....
    And what happened?
    They created jobs all right....overseas!!

    Took them from here, garnered huge profits, paid no taxes!!

    Gee, what a racket.

    And STILL they spout that nonsense.

    Obama and the Democrats have turned this around. Slow, steady, nose to the grindstone.
    It can only get better. Unless you the people put the republibaggers back in.

    Then we revert to neo-con "for the rich only".

    Can we really be that stupid?
