Sure.
You and the other 14 people on this forum who are in denial about the past 8 years of GOP failure can get together reminisce about all of the good times under the Bush/Cheney era.

Arctic, you are missing the point of the exercise. These events are not about the two parties. It is about govt out of control spending and putting America in debt. This is not about sides. It is about doing the right thing as a nation. If you are a Statist then you are lost to the conversation.

Agree Batch, things such as these "Tea Parties" are not about political parties. Although I could only hope that getting our hands on Granholm and throwing her into the Grand River with a nice pair of cement shoes on might help.

I just posted the British MEP speech to Brown in Great Britain. The shot heard round the world.

I'm in. I hear it's to be on April 15th at the Fish Ladder, is that correct?

Nothing to do with being Democrat or Republican. It's about being AMERICAN. As far as parties are concerned, both have lost touch.

So what time is this gonna start on April 15th?

I read that a different state tea party organizer also had participants bring canned goods for a food drive. I think that's a brilliant idea, too.

I'd even be willing to print fliers and post 'em. How can we get this ball really rolling AND get this point across this is about being an American, not a supporter of any political party? I think the spirit of opposing parties working side-by-side toward the same cause should be key during this event.

If it is held, it should be on a Fri evening or Saturday.

If it's on April 15th, a Wednesday, it may not get very many people.

Call TV 8 they can cover the protest. Breaking news, angry citizens stage protest. If Suzy Geha shows up someone might push her in though. If I come I'm bringing my fish pole. Stealhead are in.

And HERE is why there is a real need for change in this country. The blind assumption that if you opposed what Obama is doing, you must support what Bush was doing.

There ARE more than TWO possible solutions to any problem.

We really must put Partisan Politics aside here and realize that both Party's have done us no good. April 15th will be a time to let your voice be heard all the way to Washington.

That is one river that does not need any more pollutants thrown in it. I am up for drinking the tea though.

Considering the "conservatives" are the ones who screwed up this country, it probably would be un-American to show up, join them and sing kumbaya, kneel down and pray to Ronald Reagan, and beg Rush Limbaugh for guidance.
No thanks. You and the other 2 guys who might show up can let us know how it goes.

The conservatives can have a GD tea party, I want another beer party to continue to celebrate throwing their silly butts out of the White House.

Their "tea party" is basically a support group for neotards who can't accept the fact that their party and ideas are as outdated as the telegraph and as dead as Ronald Raygun.
They'll pass around the crying towels in their whine-fest, and keep reassuring each other that if only a candidate further to the right (and more out of touch) comes along they'll win an election again.

This is not a party issue Pete. It is about the over the top spending for future Americans to pay for.
