Hey, y'all. There may be a misinterpretation/miscommunica tion going on here. Give Caz a chance to explain her own positions. She came on here as a relatively new resident looking for opinions on American politics from citizens. Let's play nice.

Nice buzzword. Since there is a small kernel of truth to it, it's a good tool to use to confuse the gullible.
However, unfortunately for you, you can track the tax rate along with income inequality and unemployment rates on a nice neat little graph. There is a direct correlation. Lower taxes on the 1% equals the 1% doing better, everyone else doing worse.
If it wasn't for that awkward little thing called "truth", there might be some merit to your right-wing politics. Unfortunately, they just don't work.
Trickle-down indeed.
Kindly link the source of that "nice neat little graph." I would be very interested in seeing the data supporting it.

Hi Aggie :) Great to see you. I never look in this thread, so didn't know you were here so often. But glad you are :)
Thanks for your explanation to me. I will look at both sides, with an open mind. Australia is Compulsory voting, so something I have done since 18.
Looking forward to voting here and Id like to make a wise choice, not based on emotion or what those around me tell me what to do. Hence my reason for poping into this thread.
However, I see the majority of people in here are no different to any other political board ive been too. Sad. Thought I might actually learn something.
MY comment about voting for whoever is going to look after me, must have been taken wrong lol. Im never likely to be apart of the 'give me' crowd. I certainly don't think America owes me anything and there's a lot I would give up before even toying with the idea of welfare.
Ive never been in a situation to need it and I sure as shit dont want it..
Im glad its there as a safety for those who need it, not live on it!
I meant whether Id vote for the party that's going to look after me, by ways of improving the economy, there for improving my life style. Also health care reform. I don't know enough about Obama care to have an opinion yet, but will look into it today. But wont come back in here to share my opinions on it.

Again, thanks aggie. I always find you easy to read and polite on this board. Hope I get to meet you one day. I will private mail you after the move and I settle in a bit. We start work a week after getting there, but have kinda flexible hours, so maybe can do a lunch some time.:)

This review of the book “Change They Can’t Believe In: The Tea Party and Reactionary Politics in America,” is from the University of Washington. The authors tells us mainly what we who live amongst the "Tea Party" have know for some time. They have the evidence that proves it. The article here does not add that comparison to the KKK is strictly of the Klan from the 1920's as Parker has sated in book tour talks. And that that comparison is due to the national scope of the Tea Party and the demographic make up of both. I do not agree that the Tea party compares to the Klan in the Klan's use of violence. However with the constant use of phrases like " the blood of patriots…" etc. with the overwhelming support of AND purchase of firearms since Obama's election one wonders how much of a spark it would take for some of the more radical elements to go that route.

The tea party and the politics of paranoia
Peter Kelley
News and Information
Posted under: News Releases, Politics and Government, Research, Social Science
Members of tea party claim the movement springs from and promotes basic American conservative principles such as limited government and fiscal responsibility.
But new research by University of Washington political scientist Christopher Parker argues that the tea party ideology owes more to the paranoid politics associated with the John Birch Society — and even the infamous Ku Klux Klan — than to traditional American conservatism.
Parker is the author, with fellow UW political scientist Matt Barreto, of a new book titled “Change They Can’t Believe In: The Tea Party and Reactionary Politics in America,” published this spring by Princeton University Press.
At the heart of their book is a nationwide telephone survey overseen by Parker in early 2011 of 1,500 adults — equal numbers of men and women — across 13 geographically diverse states. The results starkly illustrate where tea partyers and true conservatives part ideological ways.
Responses place tea party members far to the right of the mainstream Republican conservatism of Nelson Rockefeller, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and even George W. Bush — viewing President Obama as a faux citizen, a Muslim and socialist agitator, bent on America’s demise.
“Tea party conservatives believe in some conservative principles, to be sure, but they are different from more mainstream conservatives in at least one important respect,” Parker said.“True conservatives aren’t paranoid; tea party conservatives are.”
Asked flat-out if they think President Obama is “destroying the country,” only 6 percent of non-tea party conservatives agreed, a number that rose to 36 percent among all conservatives regardless of tea party affiliations. By contrast, 71 percent of self-identified tea party supporters thought this extreme statement true.
“And that’s just the tip of the iceberg,” said Parker, a UW associate professor of political science.“It’s no secret that tea party conservatives view President Obama with such contempt, but I am the first to document it empirically.”

"Other survey results include:

Three-quarters of tea party conservatives said they think President Obama’s policies are politically socialist while only 40 percent of non-tea party conservatives held that view.
Twenty-seven percent of tea party conservatives said they think President Obama is a practicing Muslim, while 18 percent of non-tea party conservatives took that view.
Similarly, 46 percent of non-tea party conservatives allowed that President Obama is a practicing Christian, while only 27 percent of tea party conservatives believed it so.
Was President Obama born in the United States? A majority — 55 percent — of conservatives allowed that this was true, but of tea party conservatives, only 40 percent agreed.
And perhaps not surprisingly, fully three-quarters — 75 percent — of tea partyers said they wish President Obama’s policies to fail, compared with 32 percent of conservatives."

Parker called the tea party a continuation of what political scientist Richard Hofstadter in the 1960s described as “the paranoid style in American politics,” characterized by exaggeration, suspicion and conspiratorial fantasy.

Parker said,“Consider me a skeptic when tea party supporters call upon a conservative tradition to which they have but a slight claim.” <

That's ONE book. How do you know the authors aren't extreme leftists? You say there is evidence? Okay. Which party started the KKK? Which party fought against civil rights? There is evidence to support that, too. We ALL know that we can find evidence to support whatever we believe. That is why this forum is strictly entertainment for me. I would never depend on it to help me make a decision about ANYTHING.

The administration is concerned because less that 24% of those who have signed up for Obamacare are the youth it was depending on. NOW this administration is concerned about impending higher costs for premiums.

I know this is off topic, but shouldn't there be federal regulations against anyone who is a known child killer to be able to auction off things involved in the crime? I just read, on multiple sites, that a website is auctioning off things that were involved in the murder. This is how society is going now? I urge everyone, whether you like me or not, to urge everyone else you know to boycott the website that is trying to profit from a child killer. We all know she did it, or at least covered it up. It's things like this that make me just livid.

Sadly, that IS where society is now. Nothing is too horrific for human consumption nor too emotionally painful to be considered sacred.
