What do they stand for anyway? Anybody know anything about them? I confess I know little of them, or even if they are still around.

What say you all?

It's a bit of an Enigma. They seem to share similar views as the Libertarian Party. It's almost as if the Tea Party has been dissolved into the Libertarian Party / movement..

Both are more conservative and believe in the individual civil liberties of each citizen as opposed to separating everything into "This groups rights" or "That Groups Rights".

I see the Libertarian Party as being more true to the original GOP. Since the days of Lincoln the GOP has evolved as has the Democratic Party.

Who'd have ever thought that after the Democratic Party formed the KKK that a few generations later the GOP would be labeled as racists for not supporting a bi-racial president?

I guess that's just how politics works tho

Most of the Tea Party people are GAY and in the closet-some locally have incest issues.

The Tea Party seem to not want to pay taxes, hence their name (an acronym for taxed enough already), however want the benefits of taxes provided by our government. They are easily manipulated individuals and seem not to be well informed. A sign I recall from a Tea Party event said, "Keep your government hands off my Medicare". That sign is utterly moronic! Many seem to be Republicans who were upset about President Obama being elected in '08, however they did not have a clue how to vent their frustration. Dick Armey, and the Koch brothers capitalized on the situation and formed the Tea Party under the guise of a grassroots movement.

To sum it up, the Tea Party is made up of individuals who benefit from what our government provides, but do not want to pay for it, they hate that Obama is in the White House because he's black and he's a Democrat, and, with the exception of their leaders, are not too bright. They are convinced to vote against their own interests.

You accuse the Tea Party members of not being bright but concede their leadership is. You suggest that the members are voting against their best interests. I take issue with your opinion that their best interests are an economy with 1 out 6 americans on public assistance. You argue they are racist but that is as spurious as suggesting they won't apply for government benefits because of a phobia against queuing.

I'll suggest they are brighter than you because they understand that followers are like sheep. Brighter than you because they know that earning a living through productive work is superior to scraping the crumbs from their leaders meals off the floor. Brighter because they have pride. Brighter because they refuse to be misled or mislead others. Brighter because they know a simple truth. There is no free lunch.

My guess is you have grown fat from free lunches and wish for everyone to become obese. But it doesn't work that way. To many fat people in the cart only make it more difficult for the ones pulling and may cause the cart to tip over.

"We the people" can control our own lives, we don't need government to control us. The Constitution is a living document.

The tea party was a grass roots movement that leads you to believe that they funded themselves. They are OWNED by two billionaire Oilmbarons who were born wealthy and who actually speak put against the poor. They have $32 billion each. They are TOTAL DIRTBAGS and I wish them cancer or fibromyalgia ...... Their goal is to wreck the economy, wreck the federal govet and cause great discourse among Americans. I wish upon them the worst forms of death that God could offer them. Since they couldn't purchase the White House, they have now set aside a plan to purchase little state senators like the WORMS like Ron Ramsey and the Matthew hills that would suck the snotty of end of anything that would serve their purpose .

That's the tea party and that's your state thugs. Ay further questions?

can you site your source for this? Or is it coming from your closeted homo-erotic fantasies you have about men in suits? Or does it spawn from conversation you have while sucking willies in the bathroom of your local rest stop? I mean you have to be a willie licker yourself to have so much insider knowledge here.

Ad that makes us dumbasses? Uhm, you might wanna rethink that, Piney flats professor. You might like hovering under a car hood all day long for $9 per hour. I much prefer to walk to the mailbox. Where do you think Ron Ramseys gets his check from. Your ass?
