I'm sorry that you feel that way. Having attended a couple of the Tea'd Party gatherings, I found there to be a diverse group of people. They care about this nation and are concerned with the direction they see it heading towards.

I've followed the news reports on this movement, and they're overwhelmingly older, white, & male, and certainly not poor. They want to "take our nation back," but since it's a democracy, just who do they suppose "took" it from them? They decry "socialism," but love their government run and financed social security pensions and medicare. They decry taxes, but when polled, say they pay a fair amount, and get upset to learn that 47% of Americans don't pay income taxes!

They worry that Obama is too concerned with the poor and minorities, yet claim they certainly aren't racist. They are financed by well known right-wing conservative Republican groups and proclaim Sarah Palin is their darling, but they claim independance from either of the two principle parties.

Only the resurgance of the militia movement represents a greater danger to the American republic's future!

Only the resurgence of the militia movement represents a greater danger to the American republics future! A quote from Stop The Tea Baggers. Yeah, voters sure are a danger. Be sure to equate voters with the militia movement. Classic socialist tactics whether or not you are a socialist. Wittingly or unwittingly, what's the difference? Our darling is not Sarah Palin!!! Our darling is the CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES. You be sure to equate we lovers of the U.S. Constitution with the socialists, communists and nazis. You be sure to equate Right Wing Conservatives with the socialists and their two wings. Throw out the RACIST epitaph. Accuse us of race hate. Do all the usual leftist tactics but come November you'll find out it didn't work. You use the word "Democracy" describing our nation. Since when it is a Democracy to push and pass bills in Congress in the heat and middle of the night, when most Congressmen who votes on the bill do not even know what is in the bill and the American public, including the voters, don't know what's in the bill. You have the nerve to call that Democracy? If you're not a socialist propogandist, you missed your calling. Who says we love socialism while drawing social security all at the same time? You say it and others like you. You did not pay one dime of my social security or any one else's and this is supposedly set up this way by your great socialist god FDR. I myself paid into SS for 48 years and all along they, the federal government, were blowing my money on crap, not putting it into an account for me. It was all lies, not Democrat or Republican lies, but socialist lies. FDR was no more a Democrat than my dog was. He was an out and out socialist. In 1935 if my Dad made $18 a week, he took home $18 a week but not so in 1936, the first year of the socialist FDR's wonderful social security and it went downhill from there. My Dad sunk a whole lot of money into beast on the banks of the Potomac and I also have fed that money hog as have everyone since 1936. We are anti, anti-socialist, not anti-race. All races like to receive everything they earn but none of us do. Live in your make believe world of news reports but come November you'll get a taste of the real world at the polls. You'll find not all of us are mindless robots of the socialist machine. A lot of us have the ability to think for ourselves. I want to thank you sinkingsub and Stop The Tea Baggers for keeping the subject very much alive. We need more advertisers like youse guys.

Where do you begin with a fool such as this? Well, first, you're the one who equated the militia with voters, bubba, not I. Because you are the one trying to equate the the Tea Baggers with voters as a whole, when they are a fringe group, at best! And you maintain that I and other tax payers didn't pay for your SS, rather you did over 48 years, but yet you mainatin the Government squandered the money over the years, and it wasn't there. You can't have it both ways, ya' old fool!

Your ilk can offer little more than angry and irrantional rants! Time heals all wounds, and wounds all heels, so I trust the Tea Baggers will prove to be a group that passes into history quickly enough to limit the harm their insidious brand of evil would do this great nation.

Do go quietly into that good night, sir.. like a bothersome swarm of gnats, you're really beginning to annoy the hell out of rational thinking Americans!
