About Sharron Angle:

Quote:

She may be the only Republican alive Harry Reid can beat,” Eric Herzik, chairman of the political science department at the University of Nevada-Reno, told the Associated Press.

“If this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking toward those Second Amendment remedies.”(Sharon)

Whether or not Angle is actually suggesting armed opposition to political opponents, she’s also associated herself with some of the tenets of the “Oath Keepers,” a controversial group that claims a membership of law enforcement officers and active duty military personnel ready to disobey any “orders to disarm the American people”.

Until just a few days ago,” reports Politico,“you could find Sharron Angle’s policy positions on her campaign website – even ones as controversial as pulling the country out of the United Nations, privatizing Social Security and abolishing the Energy and Education departments.

End Quote.

Sharron Angle is a libertarian. I really hope Harry Reid gets beat (along with all other antigun politicians).

Michelle Fiore lost the GOP primary for the 1st District congressional seat against (D) Shelley Berkley. Too bad since Fiore's platform was almost all 2d Amend.

Angle vs. Reid. Looks like a wild west shoot out.

No one acts like the teabaggers, period. It took six police officers to stop the teabagger mob from attacking an elderly man with a sign promoting the public option. THe teabaggers are only for free speech when they are talking. We all saw how they acted during the health care debate. Teabaggers are more apt to attack Americans than any terrorist group I have seen or heard of.

I've been a republican all my life, but I cringe every time a tea party type opens his mouth. If they don't moderate their message, our chances in November will be greatly diminished.

More lies without evidence to back them up. Guess that's the only thing you're reliable for.

Got news for you. The Republican party will lose because they're putting up even weaker candidates than the Dems.

It won't be about tea bagger results, it's going to be about the total number of demorat losses.

I can't wait to count the number of antigun politicians that lose their elections.

Try to follow along nutcase.

You made the statements:

"THe teabaggers are only for free speech when they are talking. We all saw how they acted during the health care debate. Teabaggers are more apt to attack Americans than any terrorist group I have seen or heard of. "

And yet you couldn't back up those statements. Why is that? Are you one of the typical "progressives" that can't see the big picture? Perhaps you're a joiner of a major political party and can only spout the party line. Either way, you're an intellectual deadbeat to display such selective indignation.
Do you support wealth redistribution by the government?
Do you support government spending ad nauseum?
Do you the ability of someone to claim to have a right that must be subsidized by other people?

Silly tea bagger I did show a link about the un-American behavior of you tea baggers. As far as your redistribution by the government argument that is a weak one. Pay attention. All taxes are a redistribution of wealth and all democracies/republics have a progressive tax system. If you tea baggers hate taxes then you hate democracy because the entire industrialized world has a progressive tax system. If you want to live in a country with no taxes and a small weak government, might I suggest Haiti or Rwanda? The USA is a great country because we have a strong/ large federal government and a fair progressive tax system. Taxes have gone down for working Americans under President Obama. You tea baggers are not concerned about taxes or the debt, if so you would have complained prior to the black man getting elected. Sad but true the tea baggers are the modern kkk.

Silly pedophile, you made blanket statements that you did not back up. When pressed you tried to deflect. Knowing yours is a weak statement only fueled in your hatred for others you continue to dodge. US is NOT a great country due to its "large" size. It is in fact that size that is one of its biggest downfalls as it requires large amounts of taxes to support. Of course a gutless shirker like you needs the government for your sustenance so of course you'll lash out at those with the money that you depend on . The tax system is regressive, not progressive. The tea partiers aren't opposed to taxes...they're opposed to the ever increasing debt and the taxes that will be required to pay for it. Of course the debt was only a problem (in your feeble mind) during Bush's admin but you're more than willing to turn a blind eye to the current admin's spending. In fact, you're the first to rush to defend and justify it.
Accusing the tea partiers of being the modern kkk is just one more sterling example of your intellectual laziness.

Taxation is acceptable, excessive taxation is not.

We are forced to buy excessive amounts of welfare and warfare. Over 50% of our income is spent on taxes.

To make matters worse, our govt wastes this money. Some taxdollars goes to countries we don't know exist. Our bridges crumble while Haliburton rebuilds bridges in Iraq (paid for with US taxdollars).

"We have the biggest govt money can buy. Good thing our govt doesn't give us our money's worth."

Our govt is so big and powerful it can do whatever it wants. George (the butcher) Bush spent a $ trillion dollars and ordered our military to invade and conquer Iraq. Many of us opposed this govt $pork.

Once again Jerk, You are an ignorant redneck that does not have the ability to debate with me or anyone else on this thread. We all know you hate Obama because he is an intelligent black man. All you do is regurgitate the shit you hear on faux "news". You do not have an original thought in your small mind. Now, go turn on your am radio in your 1977 Chevy Vega and listen to the rush limbaugh comedy show and get some new lies to repeat. Later, Loser
p.s. sorry if I made you cry :(
