Barack Obama, our next President

Morning, piece of sh it, tea bag terrorist.
9. Avoid the Pitfalls of Politics - American politics is burdened by big money from lobbyists and special interests with an undue influence on the peoples’ representatives. The Tea Party movement is seen as a threat to the entrenched political parties and thus is the continual target of smear campaigns and misrepresentation of its ideals. We choose not to respond to these attacks except to strongly and explicitly disavow any and all hate speech, any and all violence as well as insinuations of violence, and any and all extreme and fringe elements that bring discredit to the Tea Party Movement. We are a peaceful movement and respect other's opinions and views even though they do not agree with our own. We stand by the Tea Party beliefs and goals and choose to focus our energies on ensuring that our government representatives do the same.

“I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts.”--Abraham Lincoln

“Honesty is the best policy.”--Benjamin Franklin

“Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.”--George Washington

Tea Party Platform continued:
10. Maintain Local Independence - The strength and resilience of a grassroots movement is the ability of citizens at the local level to determine their own platforms, agendas and priorities free of an overriding central leadership. Exercising the clearly stated message of the Tea Party movement by its nature involves discourse about which policies and candidates best hold to our stated principles, and these various opinions should flourish and evolve at the local level.

“Here sir, the people govern.”--Alexander Hamilton in a speech to the New York Ratifying Convention, 1788

“Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves, therefore, are its only safe depositories.”--Samuel Adams, 1781

“This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it.”--Abraham Lincoln

Once again Carol, Bush's Medicare Part D ran into many of the same problems on its rollout and was even less popular than the ACA. But Democrats, even though they voted against it, helped fix the problems and made it actually work. That's the difference between Democrats and Republicans. Democrats will work for what's best for the American people and Republicans will do what's best for their well heeled contributors.
unlike ObamaKKKare, Medicare Part D is a voluntary program...

NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH wrote:
<quoted text>So were are you from,North Korea??????? Preamble: The Tea Party Movement is an all-inclusive American grassroots movement with the belief that everyone is created equal and deserves an equal opportunity to thrive in these United States where they may “pursue life, liberty and happiness” as stated in the Declaration of Independence and guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States.

No one is excluded from participation in the Tea Party Movement. Everyone is welcomed to join in seeking to achieve the Tea Party Movement goals, which are as follows:

1. Eliminate Excessive Taxes - Excessively high taxes are a burden for those exercising their personal liberty to work hard and prosper as afforded by the Constitution. A fiscally responsible government protects the freedom of its citizens to enjoy the fruits of their own labor without interference from a government that has exceeded its necessary size, scope and reach into the lives of its citizens.

“Collecting more taxes than is absolutely necessary is legalized robbery.”--Calvin Coolidge

“A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government.”--Thomas Jefferson

“Any tax is a discouragement and therefore a regulation.”--Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

Also see: What is the Tea Party; Tea Party Ideas; Tea Partiers; Voice of the Tea Party

2. Eliminate the National Debt - By implementing fiscally conservative policies at all levels of government, progress can be made toward eliminating the U.S. National Debt. Massive increases in the National Debt have created and continue to create a huge burden for the next generation of Americans, thus imperiling the countryÂ’s short-term and long-term economic health and prosperity.

“You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.”--Abraham Lincoln

“If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.”--Thomas Paine, 1776

“As on the one hand, the necessity for borrowing in particular emergencies cannot be doubted, so on the other, it is equally evident that to be able to borrow upon good terms, it is essential that the credit of a nation should be well established.”--Alexander Hamilton, 1790

Tea Party Platform continued:

3. Eliminate Deficit Spending - All deficit spending must be eliminated immediately. We insist that government representatives at all levels maintain a fiscally responsible budget and balance the books as would be expected of any American business.

“Arbitrary power is most easily established on the ruins of liberty abused to licentiousness.”--George Washington

“A penny saved is a penny earned.”--Benjamin Franklin

“Tomorrow, every Fault is to be amended; but that Tomorrow never comes.”--Benjamin Franklin

Tea Party Platform - Home of the Tea Party Movement Platform continued:

4. Protect Free Markets - AmericaÂ’s free enterprise system allows businesses to thrive as they compete in the open marketplace and strive toward ever better services and products. Allowing free markets to prosper unfettered by government interference is what propelled this country to greatness with an enduring belief in the industriousness and innovations of the populace.

Your quote sounds very much like something Stalin or Mao would have said.
They, too, wanted a level playing field but, instead, created a society where a lack of incentive bred animosity and resentment.
The rich aren't the enemy. Laziness and apathy is.
Aerosmith became very rich. Were they singing about themselves?
Stop and think about what you are saying, Homer. The government cannot do what people can do better themselves.
Creating a welfare state benefits no one but the power elite. Empowering the power elite instead of empowering the people is a very dangerous and slippery slope.
Pretty sure you're old enough to have learned this from history.
So then my quotes are nothing like theirs. I do advocate for a level playing field(don't you?), the rest YOU are just putting words into my mouth with your usual lies and spin.

The rich own the government, they make the rules. They are howling a bit about ACA but all in all the richest 1% love the status quo, just ask em.

The 1% of the population who invest, create jobs and provide a decent lifestyle for millions of families.
If everyone is poor, how does that help anyone else?
if that 1% invest in industry and manufacturing, then maybe you would have a weak case. However, most of that investment these days are in financial products, such as mortgage backed securities and credit default swaps that don't create any jobs. Ergo you have absolutely no case.
What we liberals want is a more equal distribution of this country's wealth rather than 10% owning approximately 80% of it.

Former Senator Ted Stevens (R-AK):“Uncle Ted” Stevens, the face of Alaska politics for 40 years and formerly the longest serving Republican in the U.S. Senate, was narrowly defeated in his campaign for re-election in November. But that’s the least of his problems. Just days before the November election, Stevens was convicted on seven felony counts for accepting illegal gifts and then lying about it. The establishment of both political parties came to Stevens’ defense, including former Secretary of State Colin Powell and Democratic Senator Daniel Inouye, but to no avail. The jury found Stevens guilty on all counts. And now Stevens faces the possibility of a 35-year prison sentence.
...the conviction of Senator Stevens was overturned...

I'm not suggesting trickle up moron. But trickle down doesn't work, the 1% base is too small.

What is better for the economy that 1,000 people have money to buy a car or that 2 people have money to buy a car?

Facts About the Tea Party Movement

The Tea Party is an American grassroots movement which is considered to be a populist movement of United States citizens advocating reductions in taxes and government spending.

Other major issues of the Tea Party Platform include reducing the U.S. National Debt and the budget deficit of the government. May Tea Partiers advocate for adherence to the United States Constitution and in particular prefer an originalist interpretation of that founding document.

The name Tea Party refers to the Boston Tea Party of 1773 in which the colonists were protesting taxes on their tea by the British. The protest involved throwing tea from ships in the Boston Harbor into the ocean. The colonist’s rallying cry was “No taxation without representation.”

Because the modern-day Tea Party movement is not a registered political party it’s name has not yet appeared on any election ballots. The Tea Party movement does endorse candidates for elected office.

In the November 2010 midterm elections the Tea Party movement was shown to have a significant influence in helping the candidates the supported get elected. In that election all Tea Party supported candidates were members of the Republican party.

Because the modern-day Tea Party movement is a grassroots movement of local as well as national groups there is no one central leadership of the Tea Party movement.

Each Tea Party group determines its own priorities and sets its own agenda, though there are loose affiliations between groups and communication for the purposes of organizing particular Tea Party Protests and Tea Party demonstrations.

Some of the rallying points for Tea Partiers and issues against which they rallied to protest include the bank bailouts, stimulus spending, and health care reform.

In most all cases the underpinnings of the Tea Party movements protests and demonstrations involve advocating for reduced federal spending, the elimination of deficit spending, and the need for politicians to listen to the will of the people.

Trickle down economics doesn't work.
You hear that Bill Gross and Warren Buffett are willing to pay higher taxes, but do you ever hear about them actually overpaying their taxes? Do they ever voluntarily write the US Treasury a check for a million or so? Or do they make their statements about paying more just to satisfy the tax and spend Democrats and in these politicized IRS days get on the do not audit list?

We went through this problem starting about 1922. Took about 65 to get rid of it. Why these people want to go through that again is beyond me!!!
