The tea party movement is troublesome to many that really know what this movement is all about. Less taxes sounds good, but the movement is not just about low taxes.

They want to remove Medicare and Medicaid which the poor has no other means of any healthcare. This would mean they would be left to die when they get sick.

Also the tea party movement wants to privatize Social Security. To privatize it would only mean to put it to death except for the elite selected.

The Boston Tea Party was not about pushing the poor down in the mud like some bug. It was about stopping the British taxing the U.S.

Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security needs to be examined, to improve it to make the dollar stretch, to cut out fraud.

The quality of healthcare should always be held up with the highest banner. The Bible says in Psalms 9:17-18, “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not always be forgotten. The expectations of poor shall not perish forever.”

Jesus said they that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick.

The team party needs to think deeply before they mess with the poor. What they should do is push for manufacture to come back, that means jobs for the poor. In the meantime, bring back the welfare for the people who need it. And bring back fair wages for all. Fair means love thy neighbor as thyself. Harden not the heart, Jesus said.

Let it be said the U.S. takes good care of their poor and sick. Le is also be true.

Obama got plenty of donations from "untraceable" sources.

As far as your comment about "pushing" people into poverty is concerned, I have this response. When people turn down a job because it is "beneath" them and choose to accept government hand-outs instead, that's not pushing, that's letting them wallow in their own self-pity! And, yes, that does happen! I would graciously flip burgers or clean toilets to feed my family. But, some won't because they think the government owes them a check. If you don't believe those jobs are available, check job listings on a website!If it's an education they want, let them do it through student loans and such, like I did. It took me 10 years to pay off student loans after I graduated from college. Don't depend on the government to pay for your education--it's not their job!!

Yeah it says a lot to me, too! It tells me that anybody who believes that the Democratic Party only spent $850 promoting their presidential candidate has to be an idiot! Do you really believe that? Surely not! They spend that much on the local candidate running for dog catcher! LOL. But, that's what they want you to believe--that all the "common" people elected Obama. Well, I'm pretty much "common" and proud of it--and I promise you that I didn't support him. I know people who voted against him just because he was a black man and that was wrong--but, it was just as wrong for some to vote for him just because he was a black. WRONG in both cases, but you won't hear the liberals condemning it from both view points! And yes, I have voted for a black man before--so don't play the race card here!

Government wasn't meant to be "purchased" either. You people just don't understand. We'll pay one way or the other. We can provide help to keep people out of poverty or we can continue to push them into poverty which will only hurt America as a whole. Either way, we pay.

Just like all these people screaming "cut taxes". We have a huge deficit now, someone will pay. We can take care of it now or continue to pass it along through the generations. Either way, it'll have to be paid.

The Tea Party is not looking out for Americans. They are only looking out for big business. Look at the campaign contributions. You can always tell who the party/person will be working for by the campaign contributions.

Obama's contributions came mostly from individuals. $659,068,258 of it, in fact. Only $850 came from the party and $2,560 from PACs. That says a lot for me and it would you as well if we weren't talking about Obama.

Government was never meant to provide a living for it's people. It is necessary to provide stability and protection, but not an income. No where in the Constitution is it stated that it is the government's responsibility to provide for it's people. It is MY responsibility to provide for me and my family--not the government's. We have become too much of an entitlement society and that is what hard working people are trying to say to Washington! And no, I am not one of those "rich" people that Yellowhammer wants us to believe that are the only people that feel this way. My wife and I both work our rears off to provide and I will not depend on the government to provide for my family. In fact, I wish I had the money that I've paid into social security over these years to invest on my own or to keep myself.

In response to "the Tea Party is full of evil rich white guys"?

That's the only response needed...
« YellowHammerFlicker wrote on Monday, Nov 01 at 10:15 AM »
Well, that is the only response you ever have about the Tea Party.
« rjack112 wrote on Monday, Nov 01 at 09:38 AM »
Why do you keep calling it a defense, Yellowhammer? It's an observation of the tactics the left is using now since desperation has set in. And it will get louder before 7am tomorrow.
« YellowHammerFlicker wrote on Monday, Nov 01 at 09:34 AM »
Again, with your only defense Birdbrain. One day you'll see the truth, unfortunately, it will be too late then. Keep voting for the people that want the big companies running America.

Here we go again...

It's those evil rich people's fault! They're destroying the country, what with trying to create jobs and helping keep the economy moving and all...it's horrible! Stick it to all those evil greedy rich people! They don't need all that money! All they'll do with it is invest it back into their companies and provide more jobs and help get the economy going! We should put it in the hands of the government! They'll make sure everyone has their fair share of those evil rich people's money!

Sheesh...

There are lots of things Americans do that aren't christian-like. It still doesn't change the fact that it's only that persons business and it's a free country.

WWII is a different story totally. We didn't have the waste that we've had in Iraq. The war in Iraq should have never happened. I honestly cannot say what I would have done after 9/11. But I can tell you what I would not have done. I would not have tried to profit from it like Bush & Cheney did. Americans have spent double the amount in Iraq versus Afghanistan. Bush was a very incompetent leader. Maybe it was all the cocaine, I'm not sure.

Anyway...

Back on subject...The Tea Party

They are nothing more than rich, white men trying to buy an election. Why? Big Business, Big Oil & Big Insurance! Plain and simple. They do not care what Americans want, only what the BIG MONEY wants. Personally, I feel it's a sad day for America. The results from this election will decide the direction of America. Unfortunately, the rich will probably win. I'm not sure the left can continue to repair the mistakes of the right. America may be seeing it's downfall.

Again, I quote:

"The real difference between democracy and oligarchy is poverty and wealth. Wherever men rule by reason of their wealth, whether they be few of many, that is an oligarchy, and where the poor rule, that is democracy". -Aristotle

Having an opinion about something and having some core values about certain things,i.e. abortion and gay rights does not mean you are being judgemental of the person, just the activity. At the moment of conception, we begin to exist. Therefore, to end someone's existence, is murder. It is possible to love the person and yet not condone the activity. But, call it what it is--sin. The left is just as quick to judge someone as anyone on the right. As far as wars being about advancement, what was the reason for our involvement in WWII? We were not going to get involved militarily until we were attacked at Pearl Harbor. That had nothing to do with advancement and everything to do with defending our homeland, just like 9-11! You didn't indicate what you would have done after 9-11, but from what I get from a lot of the comments from the left,we should have just "let it go". And as far as Obama being smart, I agree, he's very intelligent. There are intelligent people on both sides. There have been good leaders in the past from both sides. But, I don't agree with the liberal agenda of the left and I don't believe that many Alabamians agree with it either. We shall see on Tuesday who is correct.

I'm not the one talking about gays & abortion. It's really non of your business what anyone else does. I do not support either, but it is a free country. The right is always talking about less government but they can't wait to try and control people. The war in Iraq had nothing to do with terrorist attacks. It was supposed to be WMD, remember? America not being attacked by terrorist again has nothing to do with the wars. If anything, that would make it more likely. Need I remind you of the UPS airplane? Obama is very intelligent, he knew he couldn't stop the wars in a day. We have stirred up a beehive now, we'll probably always have to keep people in both Iraq & Afghanistan.

Throughout history, the reason for wars was advancement. Americans should have benefited but instead it just added to our deficit.

And by the way, the "Christian Values" that our country was founded on hardly exist anymore. Christianity isn't Christianity anymore. But, that is another story altogether.

The point here is that the "Tea Party" isn't what it claims to be. It's nothing more than a front for Republicans.

I would appreciate if you would capitalize Bible. And, might I add, that you have been just as judgemental as anyone on the forum. But, the Dems think they can say anything about anyone and it's ok because they are "open minded". They are open minded as long as you agree with them. Oprah, Whoopie and the other rude lady on The View are prime examples of Liberal Dems that play the victim so well. With all the dribble, you have yet to answer my question. How many terrorist attacks have we had on our soil since the wars started? And, if Obama was so much against it, why are we still there two years into his presidency? After all, he is the Commander in Chief now, he can call them home anytime he likes. I do have one other question. What would you have done after the attacks on 9-11? We were not going to sit on our hands and do nothing. There had to be a response!

Funny, I thought the bible said we were not supposed to judge.

Yes, the wars were failures. Well, for taxpayers at least. For the big corporations, they were a huge success. Big corporations like Dick Cheney's Halliburton.

The wars has added well over 1 trillion to our deficit. Billions were wasted due to lack of proper leadership. A $40 million dollar prison sits empty in Iraq. $4.2 million was spent on 20 VIP trailers & an Olympic-size pool. $36.4 for weapons such as armored vehicles, body armor and communications equipment that can’t be accounted for. A $165 million children's hospital goes unused in the south. A $100 million waste water treatment system in Fallujah has cost three times more than projected, yet sewage still runs through the streets.

Those who served in the wars know about this. They know what our "leader" sent them there for. It certainly wasn't for WMD. Bush & Cheney should have been held accountable.

All this talk from the right about spending and yet they have wasted billions. But God forbid us improve our healthcare system, that was one of the worst yet most expensive. But, I guess Republicans would rather waste money in other countries than help citizens right here in America.

Karl Denninger, Tea Party Founder stated, "In short, The Tea Party was and is about the the corruption of American Politics and the blatant and outrageous theft from all Americans that has resulted. It is about personal responsibility and enforcement of the law against those who have robbed, financially ****d and pillaged the nation. Tea Party my ass. This was nothing other than The Republican Party stealing the anger of a population that was fed up with The Republican Party's own theft of their tax money at gunpoint to bail out the robbers of Wall Street and fraudulently redirecting it back toward electing the very people who stole all the ****ing money!" According to Denninger, "Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Bob Barr, and douchebag groups such as the Tea Party Patriots" are to blame for the bastardization of a movement that now seems focused on "Guns, gays, God," instead of the Tea Party's original mission: to castigate the federal government for supporting the "rampant theft" of taxpayer dollars that went toward "propping up FAILED private businesses."

One final note, if the two wars were a failure, how many terrorists attacks have we had on our soil since they began? Also, I think it's very sad of you to indicate to those who have served in those wars that what they did was of no importance. And finally, if Obama felt so strongly that the wars were of no value, why in the world are we still fighting two years after he took office? Must be that there is something there worth fighting for!
