good! it's about time he actually started listening to the reasonable side of his party!

if obama gave as many concessions to the extreme wing of the democratic party as boehner has given to the tea party, then we really WOULD have the communist nation people seem to think we're headed toward :p

Do a little research on the Tea Party and tell us why it is such a bad thing.

i actually think they're over, for the most part, and they've done some long-term damage to the republican brand that will take decades to repair.

but i guess we'll see....

why would you ever assume i haven't done research on the tea party? i've been reading about the movement since it started breaking headlines. politics is my thing. i study it and follow it like most americans follow reality shows. i know what their agendas are, both public and private, and that's why i believe the way i do.

The Tea Party is as American as apple pie. If you read their stated goals and objectives, you would know this. Check the link I provided (or any other) and tell us what you disagree with.

the tea party likes to talk about how they're strict constitutionalists, failing to take into account that our constitution is a living document and was designed to change with the times. they are extreme reactionaries who would have us go back on many of the progresses we've made as a nation (some even going further back than others). their surface issues, reducing debt and lowering taxes, are fundamentally opposed to each other, as it is impossible to do both without devolving into a state of chaos which i'm sure the tea party constituency could not withstand, as they are primarily senior citizen aged white people.

those are just the surface-level agendas, the ones they openly espouse, and i disagree with the fundamental dichotomy at the heart of their platform. i'm a firm believer in the necessity of taxes. the founders rallied against unjust taxes, not taxes in general. the tea party spouts a gross misrepresentation of this view by holding that all taxes are inherently wrong. this nation cannot survive without taxes.

and like i said, that's the surface agenda. they have sub-surface agendas aimed toward putting into power an extremely conservative governmental representation, which would seek to dismantle many of the civil rights that have been fought for and won over the past several decades and to block further progress that's in the works. they are farthest right of the far right, a surging mass of nationalistic conservative furvor that would drive this country to the brink of fascism if they had their ultimate say. liberty, sure, but only for those who they deem worthy of receiving it.

these are the reasons why i disagree with the tea party movement.

Well, OK. I understand your viewpoint. I would just like to say that the Tea Party is composed of many of your friends and nieghbors, and I seriously doubt that they are guilty of what you charge, in the way you say. God bless America.

Unalienable Rights can never be challenged here.

Who doesn't know the Constitution can change by adding or subtracting amendments, someone on Mars?

It is the harassment and rule by Fiat, Executive Orders, Ordinances, Czars, Regulations, Color of Law, Bureaucrats, and Politicos being used by Government to usurp the Constitution that has literate and thinking people up in Arms.

Like the Federal Government saying it can force People into private contracts with business by calling it a tax (Obamacare) or the Feds saying they can disappear any American under the NDAA, for examples.

And their was no chaos when J.F.K. lowered taxes and increased revenue.

Seriously, if I didn't know better I would think you just arrived on a banana boat from some where. LOL!

Forward eh? We know your Orwellian wordspeak to enslave the masses. Here is the definition...

Republicans for Big Government

by Andrew P. Napolitano


Do you know anyone who voted Republican this past election in order to further President Obama’s big government agenda? Or is it more likely that Republican voters sought to advance a smaller version of the federal government? And if they did, why are Republican congressional leaders offering to help the president spend us into oblivion?

It’s Time to Give John Boehner the Boot (and It’s Not Hard to Do)

posted on December 6, 2012
by Gary DeMar

AMA’s Ned Ryun said the following in a statement:
“Speaker Boehner has been an abysmal failure as speaker, and his latest purge is the nail in the coffin for conservatives.... Boehner has never won a negation battle with the White House or Senate — and he’s been nothing short of an embarrassing spokesman for the Conservative Movement. It’s time for him to go.”

We all need to get behind this initiative.

Boehner needs 218 votes to become Speaker again. The Republicans control 233 House seats. If 16 members abstain from voting for him, he’s out as Speaker. The Democrats could spoil this tactic by voting for Boehner since they have no chance of winning the Speakership position because they are in the minority. Since they know that Boehner is an ineffective leaderr for the conservative cause, he is their best bet for a tax increase. They might just vote for him to keep him in power.

So what can we do? Call your congressman and ask him to abstain from voting for Boehner for the Speakership position. Tell him or her that you will be tracking his or her vote. If he or she does not abstain, you will (1) refuse to give any money to the RNC and (2) you will work to unseat them in the next election.
