    Do Tea Party candidates and their supporters "really" believe that they will get into office and...

    keep all those promises they've made? GOP-Tea Party candidates are promising so much, but yet have said how they plan to pay for any of it, and being in the minority, do they believe they can actually make changes or just cause more gridlock?

    They're just another bunch of disaffected insignificant right wingers who are desperate for power. They will, like any mainstream political party do and say anything to get elected and of course lke the mainstream parties they will conveniently forget what they promised prior to election.

    I want to believe that America will wake up soon and look back at the last 30 years of government and look at the results of bad govt and political corruption which culminated in the mess of the country today. Blaming Obama for the state of the country today is a pathetic cop out by right wing repulblicans who refuse point blank to accept that two terms of George Bush and his cronies witnessed corruption and warped imperialistic ideals that has resulted in thousands of lost lives and over a trillion dollars funding such a disaster.

    Those in the Tea Party would be the same people that supported Dubya's ill feted reign and now want to pretend they had nothing to do with it. So what do they do? Set up another right wing party claiming to be the party of the people and how they will cut taxes neiterh of which is true.

    I find it bizarre that right wing americans always look for 'liberals' to blame for all that's wrong with America when the right wing has contributed far more to a damaged society with their divisive policies and corrupt practicies. America has never had a left wing party yet right wingers behave as if any party or voter that disagrees with them is left wing! That paranoia scatters the seeds of fanatacism which results in conflict with other fanatics.

    If the clowns from the Tea Party ever get into power America will have another Civil War.

    I also find it interesting the debate from Republicans about immigrants when you consider there isn't a single American that comes from true American soil. We're all natives except the right wingers who seem to have claimed a right that they don't have.

    Sorry about the long answer but I felt it need some back up.
