What do you thing of all the new media about the Tea Party?
I keep hearing all this hub bub about conservatives "not being conservative enough."
I think they started out great, but now they're just a pawn to split the republican vote.
They could have convinced democrats to vote out the incumbents, too, if they weren't so radical in their socialist/liberal-bashing. Oh, well. Que-Sherrod-Sherrod. Whatever will be, will be.
Folks, like any faction, group or party, there are degrees in both directions. There is an equal call from the far left that Liberals are not push hard enough. Just look up interviews of Howard Dean after Scott Brown won Massachusetts. Howard’s logic was defined as “Scott Brown won because liberals want to send a message to Obama that his policies are not liberal enough.” Seriously?
Dig deep enough and you will find absolute nut jobs who want to tear down the system completely and start over…I see these on both sides.
Tea Partiers are fed up with not having a viable second choice, as so many spend and tax Republicans disaffected our party during the Bush years. God bless having multiple voices or we would all hail the Queen.

Is it fair to refer to the Tea Party as the American Taliban?I think I saw a bumper sticker that said this. Obviously, this would be a very liberal position, but are there any actual similarities? Is this a statement...

Why do political people seem to demonize the opposition rather than discuss issues?I see this on both the right and the left and it drives me batty. Why do conservatives like to use "liberal" as a dirty...

Why is it that Tea Party type hubs won't post comments from anyone that doesn't see things their...way? Everytime I got to a right wing conservative hub and make a valid arguement about a topic, they won't post my...
