YOU TEA PARTY GUYS SHOULD TAKE A FLYING LEAP! You are terrorists and anti-patriots! You are anti-statesmen. You know nothing about compromise and certainly nothing about majority rule.
Remember stalemate and freeze and forcing the Democrats in the Senate to come up with 60 votes? Yes, you are terrorists and hate your countrymen! You protect big business and big money over the interests of working people and middle class!
SHAME!
When you Tea Party idiots ruin the Republican party's chances again, you will be discredited, like Joe McCarthy was in the 50's.

If the polls are any indication, the majority of the American people are growing weary of the liberal democrats approach to politics. There is no discussing anything rationally with liberals. There is no logic or reason in the liberal ideology, other than to force socialism on us.

Its like trying to get a hysterical screaming (and drunk) woman to help you fix the dishwasher by reading the manual to you while you work on it.

It aint happening.

Liberals scream hysterically at anyone who has a valid disagreement with them, over anything.

They call people terrorist, when they are not terrorist.

They call people extremist, when they are not extremist.

They scream and rant hysterically, and attack people who do not deserve to be attacked.

They wrap every stupid socialist agenda idea, in fake emotionalism and knee-jerk reactionary phrases such as..."Its for the Children".

(Its always for the children, it seems. And when thier plans hurt the children, it is quietly swept under the rug by the leftist mainstream media and just not talked about)

Like this...

http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials-obam...

They make asinine statements such as "Republicans want dirty water", or "Republicans want to throw grandma over the cliff", and they make ludicrous arguments such as "Dont you want everybody to have insurance"?

(Even though Obamacare will result in people loosing jobs, and employer based health insurance, and make rate for many unaffordable, and for the working poor, the promised subsides arent coming, they wont be able to afford Obamacare. But the IRS will be on thier backs anyway...)

Yes, the liberals wrap up lies and flawed agenda with hysteria, obfuscation, and dishonest attacks. When all the time, they are only wrapping lies and deceitful tricks, in phony arguments and more hysterical name calling.

Whenever an unflattering news article comes out about a liberal democrat, the rest of them attack the news agency that reported the news, rather than address the subject of thier failures.

Its all designed to wear down or cow the intelligent who have the will to expose them.

But, though some in America have indeed been "dumbed down" due to PC liberal meddling in the schools, and the constant drone of mind numbingly stupid sitcoms...America is finally starting to wake up.

The hysterical name calling and ridiculous arguments arent working any more.

You will see more tpp and conservative independents in 2014 and 2016, they are the only chance to save this great country. They will be welcomed after what has happened under this administration.

. Reagan said Medicare would destroy our medical system in America because it was a left wing "socialist" program. Was that an attempt on his part to create hysteria? Do you think that happened? Was it misinformation, a lie, or just telling people what he and those against the old getting insurance wanted people to believe in order to defeat what turned out to help millions and probably billions by this point? They still want to privatize it. The right wing that is. The right is against the EPA (Nixon). Would that translate into "dirty water"? Maybe. Wasn't it NCLB (Bush), IDEA (Ford), and unfunded mandates that have hurt education on the local and state levels? Maybe. What about thr privatization of Social Security? How would that have played out during the crash of 2008 when peoples' 401k's took devastating hits and lost large percentages of their retirement savings? We need to do all we can to make Obamacare work since it is the law. Misinformation and outright lies.promulgated by the right hurt our country.

Yes, misinformation and lies are indeed hurtful to our government.

So, why dont you stop it?

You mention what Reagan stood for, so, why dont we just let Reagan speak for himself? Here we go...

http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Reagan was calling Medicare a "foot in the door" program (Congressman King Bill), which is exactly what it was.

The real target of the leftist (since the days of Harry Truman) was compulsory, nationalized health care...Obamacare.

Because taking over the Health Care System of a formerly free nation, ensures that it will fall to socialist enslavement before long.

How would you feel if we were starting from scratch today? Would you "mandate" employers to provide health care coverage for employees? Its hard to fathom what your posts would say about that. Our system is a mess. The way it is set up for profit insurance companies control the system. Making coverage accessible to millions is what the ACA does. There will be bugs to work out, so lets work together to iron them out. Had Harry Truman been successful in the 50's this debate would be moot.

President Obama to shut down the government on behalf of his Big Business and government employee friends to whom he has granted exemptions, subsidies and delays.

http://joeforamerica.com/2013/09/gop-delays-o...

Read the fine print. Corruption, scandals and lies are what this administration is made of.
Higher premiums due to insurance coverage mandates, including the funding of abortions, morning-after abortion pills, and contraceptives for wealthy 30-year-old Georgetown Law School Students in violation of the Free Exercise of Religion Clause of the First Amendment;
Fines on hospitals for more non-emergency treatment of the indigent more than once per month;
Jobs not created, jobs lost and full-time jobs reduced to part-time due to the impending employer mandate;
The granting of a one-year delay of the employer mandate for Big Business by executive fiat;
Exemptions for federally employees favored by President Obama and the Democratic Party;
Loss of coverage for spouse and children;
Loss of the Obama-promised right to see one’s doctor and maintain current insurance;
Scores of new health care-related taxes, including on medical devices; and
Scores of other deleterious effects of Obamacare on the pre-Obamacare status quo, the reading of which of would be less voluminous than required to complete volumes A-L of the Encyclopedia Britannica.

No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time.

what we need is 100 million PLUS people march on Washington........

. It'll be like Social Security and Medicare. Once people see how great it is it will show how Republicans were wrong. That's why they do not want it to happen. The people, with the exception of some morons, will see how Republicans lie.

I just found this Ronald Reagan quote. Seems to be prophetic in many respects.

"Now back in 1927 an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for president on the Socialist Party ticket, said the American people would never vote for socialism. But he said under the name of liberalism the American people will adopt every fragment of the socialist program. One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It's very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project. Most people are a little reluctant to oppose anything that suggests medical care for people who possibly can't afford it." --Ronald Reagan on health care in 1961

Reagan was against Medicare too. You against Medicare? He raised the debt limit numerous time without opposition. What about that? He said to not worry about the deficit because "it's big enough to take care of itself". What about that statement? How do you feel about that? If Reagan ran as a Republican today he would not stand a chance. Take off the rose colored Reagan glasses.

Ted Cruz is about the only Senator in Washington that speaks for the nearly 70 or so odd percent of Americans who are opposed to Obamacare.
The rest of the Senators, including our own Tennessee Senators, Alexander and Corker, seem to be determined to vote for closure, which will allow the democrats to easily strip out the defund language from the spending bill.
Ted Cruz is trying to stop them, and force the Senate to vote on the bill just like the House wrote it, with the defund language intact.
Then the Senate Republicans would have to vote "Yea" or "Nea" on it. And thier defense of Obamacare would be a lot more obvious.
Ted is trying to make thier trickery obvious.
I wish Tennessee has a good a Senator as Ted Cruz.
But...maybe we can have him for President?
I would a lot rather have him than Hillary, or a John McCain clone (like last time).
Go Ted Go! 70% of America is with you!
I think I would vote for him
TN already has one BATS**T crazy person in Congress, with Marsha Blackburn!! Why want another one?? I guess you like being at mercy of for-profit insurance companies, huh?

. Take back America from what? That has never made sense to me. I believe it means elect Republicans. Is that right? If so, with the way they behave in our legislative bodies I doubt it will ever happen. Even in the House of Representatives. Democrats got collectively more votes than Republicans, however with redistricting through gerimadering Republicans got the majority. You must be independently wealthy, or dumb as a rock.

No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.

Socialism does not run out of money. That is why countries like Norway, Sweden, Germany, Switizerland, etc. are all so wealthy, happy, having thriving economies, strong middle class, high educational attainment, good healthcare...and are strong democracies, with great protection of civil rights and civil liberties.

LOL!!!
If Cruz does not have right to a different opinion neither do you. There have been other government shut downs and positive things have come out of them.
TRUTH BE TOLD.... Ted Cruz is a proud Texan .. and represents the great state of Texas, as a US Senator. Ted Cruz stood Texas tall and spoke like proud Texans do .. and he spoke for the Texans who elected him, to speak for them .. and he doesn't give a flying crap .. what the morons, idiots, and bow down sheep imbeciles think.......
