Do u really believe a tea party candidate as president will change it all? I hope u are not that narrow minded. More to the politics of this country than who is president. Church & state separation not sure what the difference is. Most churches I know the more money u donate the better chance to heaven. The government they want more money to. Get an old time farmer in the office they pretty much know u can't spend what u ain't got

Well, the Tea Party does not exist to field candidates. It is not a third party. The purpose of the tea party is to provide a forum for concerned citizens...for We The People...it exists to hold ALL elected officials accountable and to educate the general, otherwise uneducated public about the things in this country that are leading down a path to destruction. The tea party is non partisan, though many have been hijacked by party insiders. The groups that you see fielding candidates, are the ones that are failing, because it is going outside of the purpose of the movement. We aren't republicans, we aren't democrats, we aren't Libertarians, We aren't racist, we aren't rednecks...We are educated, we are awake, we are concerned, we are angry, we are tired of being misrepresented...WE ARE WE THE PEOPLE

Actually, the population of Hanover (according to the census) is 15,105. Hanover's voting record is, and has always been very conservative. 200 people sure does better represent the general public better than the 30 people that showed up to Gettysburg the following Monday for the left wing counterpart to the Tea Party Rally
Actually what I said was the population of the "Hanover Area" is over 20,000 - you're quoting Hanover Boro numbers. So basically you're saying because only 30 showed up in Gettysburg we should count your views as a majority? Get real - less than 1 % of the area population showed up at your rally and you feel Tallman and Moul should be beholden to your wishes. This is my point exactly - you are the right wing fringe not the majority or even near it and should be treated accordingly in your representation.
