Only in America could the "rich people" - who pay 86% of all federal income taxes - be accused of not paying their "fair share" by people who don't pay any federal income taxes at all.

I might be offended if I were a " teapublican " but as I answered the question already. I`m am not a " teapublican " therefore not offended nor a hypocrite.

Demoncrats are on the other hand top shelve hypocrites.

YOU SAID:"I have changed as well, but I assure you, not as much as my former party has !"LOL
Yes you have changed, that is if you were ever a republican which I doubt. You are one of those Fricken Dem/libs that set on the fence and shout 'I am on your side' and all the while, would stab a person, party, cause, etc. in the back if it was not going your way. Right now in the government, you have everything you wanted yet you still complain. Harry Reid will not let anything pass thru the senate so even though the congress as you would put it 'is in the enemies hands',cannot do anything to help or hurt! Now the Government will continue to grow, the country will go further in debt, more people will lose their jobs, get on welfare, food stamps, disability and unemployment, health care will get worse and cost more, privacy will be a thing of the past, guns will be marginalized, property and the so-called 'property rights' will go out the window, and during the next four years, things will change so Obama can get re-elected again. A perpetual one party gov. that will take care of 'YOU'. People like you are pushing it that way in hopes of finding a 'Utopia'. Over the previous 200+ years it has been tried and failed. With the help of the mainstream media, and a lot of Dem/libs holding high offices in the gov., it will not fail this time. You will get what you want up to a point, THEN the pendulum sill swing the other way and you.......... will shout to the other side of the fence,of course from the top of the fence!!
You are certainly entitled to your own opinion ! Since this is an anonymous forum, I have no reason to lie...what would that prove ? Your post indicates that there is only black and white. I see many shades of grey. Neither Republicans nor Democrats represent all of the views I espouse, so the choice becomes a scale. Which political positions come closest to the ones important to me and which are not. That scale has shifted over the years. If you are satisfied that Republicans represent everything you believe in, by all means vote for them. I will give you a ride to the polls...but your opinions carry no more weight and your vote is no more important than mine.
Just as the silly predictions from radical Democrats during the Bush years predicted that "W" would not yield the presidency after his term, here come rhe radical Republicans predicting a never ending Obama Administration. I called the Dems on that then and I call you on it now. This is not how America works and it never will be.
It is my opinion that the Republican Party will have to change to closer represent 21st century America, or their appeal to voters will continue to diminish. As far as stabbing a "party" in the back, I do not owe my vote to any party, and when they cease to represent a majority of my interests and my values I will withhold my vote and my influence.

You neglected to compare our nation's defense spending against those other nations. I know the response will divert to "entitlement spending" (predictably), however...
No---What are all the other countries protecting. The 'little fella' Why have a big army except to overthrow the present gov.???

Then the question is,'Why do we have to police the world?' we are isolated with two oceans, they certainly would not come here? Let them kill each other.

WRONG! In a heart-beat they would come here FIRST. To answer the first question is to only say,'It is our 'Resposibility' given to us by saving the world from itself at least twice during the last 100 years.'

To answer the 2nd question is to say, The invading country would not take the route of Hitler (invading Europe) but rather would target us. If we fall, They (Europe) are nothing to worry about.

'Rem Pearl Harbor' Back then, those ships were all we had to defend ourselves with. Yes, we had some in the Atlantic but not much, the submarines pretty much kept them at bay. Now today, we have Carrier Groups that contain from 50 to 100 ships.I believe we have about 6 Carrier Groups. One Nuke would take one whole group out. Yes, they have defenses but like the Homeland Security and FBI, etc. here, they will have to perfect every time and the terrorist or invading country will have to be right only once. It takes time to move a Carrier Group and by that time, boots on the ground at LA, SF, others,is a real possibility. As in the movie "Red Dawn", imagine our country cut in thirds or half. Hey, China or someone already fired off a missile from a submarine within the 200 mile water border of the West Coast. Could have been a nuke and nothing could have been done to prevent detonation. The bottom line is if we do not maintain a ready, well equipped military, in both manpower and support material we will be like a 'Fly is to S-tore H-igh i-n T-ransit'. The one thing about Nukes, and I am sure all of you minorities will like this, they are indiscriminate. They cull no-one. Have nice dreams now!!!!!

Speaking for myself, I'm never offended by the "teapublican" reference. I am a registered republican, and fully ascribe to tea-party principles of constitutional governance, enumerated powers, separation of powers, limited powers, governance by budgetary affordability and fiscal soundness. In short, attempting to operate government in similar prudence and care exercised by citizens managing their homes and businesses, etetera...

What I have difficulty with, as such, is being considered someone more dangerous to America than al-Qeada, and other such nonsense as a result! But, that's just me.

I think we need some definition classes around here.

What is a TeaParty person (teapublican)

Don't look at the Dictionary----look in your own heart as to what you feel (not been told) what they are and what they stand for.

Here is my take:

First and foremost they are conservative (Right to middle)
They are your grandparents, seniors, middle aged people who believe in "Smaller Government", The business entrepreneur, security in ours schools, stamping out criminals and on and on.

They believe in our constitution, its bill of rights, a Fair day wage for a good days work, right to life, buns, mom, sweetheart and apple pie.

The reason why the dem/libs hate them (teaparty) so much is they are the only threat to their ideology. They have to marginalize us to maintain their control over the nation.

I did say 'us' in the last sentence. As I stated before, I am a conservative and believe in most of the Teaparty fundamentals. It does not bother me if you dem/libs demeanor them, it just shows their ignorance. I feel sorry for ignorant people. Because they don't know or try to find the Truth, they are damned(cursed) to live a lie all their lives.

I shudder to think Americans are forced to underwrite this corrupt organization of theives, spies and subversives...America haters all! But, they love our dollars!

I'm not certain you are prepared for what I presently think. I suppose I should first ascertain if you authored the flagship of indecency recently launched against SSS and those of us burdened to read it! If so, I wish to declare such an act decisive cause to exclude you from a group of individuals I will engage with on topix, or elsewhere. If I am in error here, I gladly offer apology. If not, I must tell you this post was offensive beyond prurience, and most unwelcomed by me.
While those in our group heartilly joust with each other in robust debate, argument, confrontation, satire, parody, sinicism, one-up-manship and the rest of it, The spectacle of this post falls outside the purview of social acceptability. Triple (S) remains on the opposite spectrum of most of what I believe, but does not deserve this brand of filthiness!
awe, ow sweet of you to defend the nasty camden skank!. I really don't care if you don't like me calling him/her names. Opnions are like,well you. The old saying wish in one hand and shit in the other and see which fills up faster is my answer to this. You don't like what i say about her,well DON'T READ IT!!! Noone is forcing you to read what me or anyone else post to her/him about her/him! Him/her doesn't have a problem saying nasty things about anyone who doesn't agree with her/him views!

It is a common tactic of Demoncrats to use this tactic. When they don`t have a leg to stand on they then accuse the other side of the vilest accusations in an attempt to attack the person they disagree with. It has ramped up since this last president took office. It has worked to a degree but now people are just plain tired of being labeled just because they disagree with a certain person or party. I have been aware of the tactic for years and it has never worked in silencing me. I can sling mud with the best of em. Very few demoncrats can you debate with these days because they have been brainwashed into thinking the rest of us are evil when in fact....

OK, By your explaining yourself, I believe you were a Repub. I myself have voted over the years for many Democrats. They were once know as the peoples party. They got farm subsidies started to help the farmer, they got welfare to help the dustbowl-depression era people and many more bills that actually helped people.(medicare, medicaid, etc.) They killed 50,000 soldier in Vietnam. Since the early 60's they have gradually changed to becoming more liberal to what they are no-days. There are a few (very few) democrat conservatives left. Yes, in years I have voted for democrats, republicans, independents, libertarians,etc. You might say I have changed my party (not quite as dramatic as you)to being an independent. We can debate the different topics (including the gray areas) that both parties have or don't have. Hopefully without the talking points and just the truth. I will say this: Yes, there were radicals telling everyone that would listen that Clinton and Bush would get a third term. In those situations, there was no way they could get a third term. They did not have the votes to overturn an amendment. By the end of the third year, Obama will have those votes. We are rapidly becoming a nation of takers and by the next election (two years), we will have another majority in congress thus setting the stage. Like Roosevelt, Obama will be so popular that the necessary paper work to overturn this amendment will pass both houses and begin their trek through the states. Now - one thing you need to rem. the ratification process takes years, however, once the process is started, he would be able to obtain a third term legally. Take a look at the Emancipation/Proclamation that was in force long before it was radified. In fact the last state to ratify it was Mississippi, this year.

If over 50% of the people are takers, they are not going to give up a good living but in fact want more. No, I am not talking about SSN or Medicare. Welfare, food stamps, disability, child care: One women recently on the news this week gets approx.$80,000 per year while sitting at home with two kids. Need I say more. We can drive each other to the polls together, and vote differently in any election. I do respect yours or anybody else's vote as long as it is an informed vote. I fought for, believe in and live with the idea that the vote is our most valuable right.

Life's all about choices, be who you "choose" to be!

I've already made an objection to the substance and tone of another person's post, I believe that to be adequate and without need for a re-hash! If you're in need of a drama fix, go somewhere else, I'm sick of it!

To correct a small part of your delusion here, It's not my job to exonerate SSS or anyone else on the thread, certainly not you! Look, triple (S) isn't my personal, social or political ally, and she doesn't consider me a friend. She has castigated me for about everything on the menu, but she has the right to do it. I only celebrate in the sense that you and I, along with everyone else can do the same, o.k.? I'm well aware of problems we all deal with here, I'm hoping for a better atmosphere, but don't expect it!
I hope you will learn to feel differently. tks.

YOU SAID: You cannot blame the average Israeli Citizen for what their Gov't. does any more than you can blame the average American Citizen for what our Gov't. does.
I beg to differ: The gov is a reflection of the people (they voted). Since Our gov. in infiltrated with a large quantity of Dem/LIBS, it in essence is transferring the ideology of the left into its agenda. The only problem you, a dem/lib, did not see, is that when the gov. get 'so big' it then becomes the ideology of ONE person and cares nothing about the people who put him/her there. I know nothing about Israel but by the ideology of their gov. I think the people recognize they could all be wiped-out tomorrow if their gov. did not take a preemptive stand. Much like your so-called 'Property rights' What happens when someone tries to take over your home or property. Oh--Call the law. What if there was no law, judge,or anything to stop them. Now--what do you do? throw sticks. Israel is in the same pot. There is not a law, sheriff, judge, etc. that will stop another country, people, etc. from invading them. The U.S. is really the only friend they have in the world. Now---would it not be nice if one or two of your neighbors come over to help you defend your property (in the first scenario)when no one else would. When the current administration guts the military, we will have foreign company on our shores. Guess we can then throw sticks because our guns will be long gone?
Thank you dem/libs for a good life expectancy!!!!!!!!!!
Why do you blame the "Dem/Libs" for this? Where were you when George W. Bush and the Republican-Controlled Congress voted in a change to the "Emminent Domain" Law, so they could take your Property for any Corporation or Company that would pay more Taxes on it, than you do and there's not a thing you can do about it? Where were you then? Where were you in 2011, when Boehner bragged about getting the Sequestration Option from Obama in exchange for agreeing not to send the Country into Default? Where were you then? Where are you now, that the Teapublicans are willing to let the Country go back into a major Economic downfall, again, just to protect the Wealthiest from paying more than a 14% Tax Rate and/or close the Tax Loopholes that enable them to pay zero taxes, instead of paying the 28 to 32% that you pay, or are willing to let THEIR Sequestration that Boehner bragged about getting agreed to, that will surely almost destroy YOU and just about everybody else , as well as this economy? WHERE WERE YOU THEN AND WHERE ARE YOU NOW???
I can PROVE what I'm accusing Boehner/Teapublicans of, can you prove what you're blaming the Dems/Libs of???

Only in America could two people with the responsibility of overseaing the federal tax code... Timothy Geithner (D), the head of the Treasury Department and Charles Rangel (D) who once ran the Ways and Means Committe... BOTH turn out to be tax cheats and who are in favor of higher taxes.

I also saw this report and it stated the woman was studying to be a nurse and one child was in daycare and the other in pre-school with that be the bulk of the assistance but the total wasn`t 80 k but it could be as high as 80 k with other programs available to her. I agree with helping people esp those who are trying to help themselves but the problem is we don`t have the money and 80 k is alot when you consider the amount of people who can get it. I wish I had enough money to help everybody out of poverty but I don`t and if tried I would soon be with em. I see us all in the ditch and my question is who will help America when that time comes and it`s coming.

Other then that the rest of your post is pretty spot on.
