The Tea Party ideology represents the worst in our Country. While they might
have good ideas and intentions, they are too extreme in their approach. The
party was born out of contention. Thus, they carry an arguemental attitude into
all they do. I believe spending issues was the real driving force
behind their creation. The problem is, even when the gov't makes cuts, the
Tea Party 'throws stones' when something bad happens. I look at
Chaffetz and Bengazi for example. He pushes for and gets cuts in spending which
in the end hurt embassy security. When something bad happens he then attacks!
You can't have it both ways. That's what the Tea Party people
don't understand. Yes, it is important we cut spending, but
those cuts come with a whole new set of circumstances. The old school
Republicans are conservative enough! We don't need the pendulum to swing
so far to the right that we totally remove ourselves from the sight of
moderate/middle America. Which by the way, that's wbere I believe most
Americans prefer to live their political lives. Democrats could learn that
too!Now they're causing changes to Senate rules?
bored,actually, there have been NO cuts. the so-called cuts are merely
reductions in the increases. increasing by 2 instead of by 3 is NOT a cut,
since there is still an increase.and actually, BO is the worst thing
that has ever happened to our country.
The Tea-Party has factions as there are too many items in the liberal agenda to
have consensus on everything that has been attacked by the liberals over the
past 100 years since the IRS 100th birth day. That is a good omen that the IRS
had this event become evident in their century of life for them and death of a
country. The Tea-Party has so many good aspects but the way they
attached to the Republican Party, the closest party they could identify with was
a difficult task. Some of those people believe as a conservative in something
but not conservative in other principles. When the government under
President Bush and now more so under President Obama have given up long standing
principles of government and integrity, it is hard to know where to attach.
Even a husband and wife can't agree on everything down the line of life.
Some things are right and others left of that line.Hopefully, the
Tea-Party is there to make the Republican Party better and not tear everything
down for their own personal glory and fame.The Democrats will do
anything they can to make themselves look glorious.
I think the Tea-Party is the best to ever happen...for Democrats!
I can't help expressing that lost's wrap-yp comment is breathtakingly
wrong. Obama's worse than the Ku Klux Klan? Than the Great Influenza
epidemic? Than the Great Deression? Than the Civil War? Than slavery? No. This
time lost is wrong, wrong, wrong. And his comment says much more about him than
I support the Tea Party for two reasons:1) They are obviously hitting a
nerve with Democrats to attract all the attention.2) You can't
exactly say the Old Guard GOP is having any success with elections or fixing the
problems in Washington. Why not stick to the platform?
"...in this Senate, even a minority within a minority, can make a
difference...".Make a difference?When the
Republicans develop a majority, in the Senate, the Democrats won't use the
filibuster to shut down Republican policy?The filibustering
pay-backs coming from the Democrats to the Republicans will arrive as surely as
day follows night.What goes around will come around.
The Ted Cruzs, Mike Lees, Rand Pauls of the world are going to make the path
easier for Democrats in future elections. Cruz, Lee, Paul and
others have no respect for our system of govt. which requires legislators to
find common ground in order to address the challenges facing our nation. The
U.S Constitution would not exist were it not for great men working together,
despite some philosophical differences.
@TruthseekerWho in the national government is trying to find common
ground? That sadly doesn't seem to be on anyone's mind.
Go tea party we seen what happened in 2010. The old guard needs to hang it up.
mccain, hatch, etc. The future of the country depend on Lee, Rubio, Paul, Cruz.
The government is running amuck with a leader who seems to have his head buried
in the sand, or the people under him is fulfilling his desires.
