public schools are the biggest form of socialism out there. You pay when you own a piece of property and again when you work for a living. I dont have any kids but I'm helping to pay for your kids education!! All the school districts want to do is raise taxes!!! Where's the Tea party for that?? I'd join then.
Great! We'll see you at the next event then, okay?

Part of Sam Rohrer's platform is to to eliminate school property taxes.

He was just one of several Representatives who spoke at the rally that day.

Second, yes, there is small scale socialism all over the place.
The "Give a Penny, Take a Penny" tray at your local Kwik-ee-Mart embodies "from each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs" perfectly.
Socialism in itself isn't wrong--families, churches, etc. practice it in various forms all the time.

It's when our own FEDERAL GOVERNMENT practices it that the probelms arise, because it's incompatible with true liberty, self-determination, and the free market system.

And, yes, public education is a form of (government run) socialism--which is one of the exact reasons why it's in such a wretched state (broke, ineffective, corrupt), and why any parent with a shred of sense and the neccesary means will gladly send their kids to a private school instead.

Glad you're joining the movement, though.

Also, personally, I appreciate the fact that 2-4 MACHSA showed up in support of the Tea Party.
Like many other rights, if the right to keep & bear/carry is not exercised, it becomes threatened, typically by the slow and insidious nature of government tyranny, which incrementally creeps deeper and deeper into our personal lives (often under the guise of "protecting us" from ourselves...thanks but no thanks).
Schools, banks, education, auto industry, energy, communications, the FDA, FCC, NEA, and so on and so on and so on--the federal government is EVERY WHERE, and growing fast.

The Tea Party wants to slow and reverse that growth, and put power and authority back where it belongs: in the hands of individual states (and if you don't like something, like an open carry law, then vote with your freaking moving van--go live in North Philly if you don't like guns. Haha), and back in the hands of the PEOPLE.

For the record, my kids played at that park all afternoon, and knowing that responsible (armed) citizens were on hand only made me feel more comfortable.

Statistics also bear out the fact that states/regions that allow people to carry typically have far less violent crimes--check out the book: "More Guns, Less Crime" by John Lott.

But to carry is my right and no I had no intention of using it but if some "manipulating zealot racists looking for an angle based on the great work of our forefathers" as you put it decided to open fire on the crowd I bet you would be happy that someone would be there to stop it... I know Suzanne Hupp former Republican member of the Texas House of Representatives regrets not having her firearm on her the day her parents were gunned down at they Lubby's Cafeteria in Kileen, Texas. The more and more we allow for our rights to be infringed on before we know it we will no longer have that right.
Grow up little boy and keep your guns out of my park.Our children play in that park.You are a stupid little man,your poor wife and children.

During a speech to the winter conference of the Young Democratic Socialists the site Verum Serum found that ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis praised socialism and attacked conservatives. She even goes so far as to say that today’s political atmosphere is worse than McCarthyism, the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, and Jim Crow segregation?

And slick willy said what about hateful
provocative speeches?

Their license plate motto is by far the best in the world: "Taxation Without Representation"...

It's good to have a sense of humor while you take one balls-deep.....

But back to the teabaggers.....

I think that everyone should carry guns every where they go. Church, banks, schools...if you look at the history of violent crimes, these seem to be places that the criminals go nuts on. I tell you what, if you could open carry in schools, someone like me at VT would have put a bullet in that shooter's head after his first shot. After that gunman killed the abortion doctor, he would have been laid out. And if i am walking down the street in Pa and someone tries to rob me, i will pull out my 40 cal and blow a large hole into the poor bastards head who tried to mess with me. If someone breaks into my house i will shoot them in both knees and in the stomach so they feel the pain before i land one in their skull. If the government tries to come and take my guns, i will kill as many of them as i can before they take me down. If the government tries to place restrictions on the guns i already own, i will not comply. I will create a website of people who are against guns, and their addresses, and when someone wants to rob you and tear your wifes legs open as u watch, you will pray to god that your gun owning neighbor will be their to help, but guess what...we wont. Am i angry? yes! Am i a gun nut? yes! Am i ex military and very well trained in the art of killing? Absolutely! Am i willing to do die to protect my rights and the rights of my family; from the government, from criminals, from who ever has the balls to challenge them? yes, your damn right, and im willing to bet that at least 80% of the gun owners out there (between 30-50% of the country) would say the same. that was my rant....if you dont agree with me or think i am bluffing, my address is in the phonebook.
