The tea party is the reason the republicans swept up in 2010. Tbe tea party did not lose in 2012. The republicans did not lose in 2012. The American people lost. Unemployment will continue to rise, welfare stare will continue to grow. The debt will will cintinue to rise. Taxes on the middle ckass & obamacare will crush the middle class. You havent felt or seen the efffects yet. You will though.

No, you can type in all the flowery language you wish but the fact is Romney and the conservative Republicans lost and Obama and the Democrats won. It's as simple as that.

You're correct. So look at week 2 post election. Debt sky rocketing, people in NJ still in trouble, Obama out offering our money to foreign country's. EPA caught violating federal law with secret email systems, Behngazzi Gate too. What's wrong with this picture?

Maybe the other tea parties are not bad, but the frankfort tea party is bad, and yes I have attended it.

The majority of the meeting I attended focused on not supporting companies based on products that were "pro-muslim", like Halel complaint turkeys from butterball.

I gave them a fair shot. If there is another group that is better off, I will attend, but honestly, the frankfort tea party focused mainly on religion and "avoiding sharia law", which really shows they have no grasp of reality. Sharia law is not a problem Americans are going to face in our lifetime, but overtaxation is. If they had focused on promoting and supporting candidates that would lower taxes I would be right there with them at every meeting, but they did not, and I don't feel comfortable being associated with some of them.

Hey Frankfotr.. Last I heard,there were over 106 TEA Party Groups just in IL.,and by design there is no central leader. So I'd imagine you can run into what you did.Sorry to hear that..

Here's the link to find a TEA Party Group in America: http://www.theteaparty.net/locate-a-tea-party...

The Tea Party isn't about anything other than smaller government. If you believe money grows on trees continue on your course, we'll prepare for the final outcome we believe to be inevitable. When you tap out your credit card, do you quit spending or do you just try to get another card? The day other nations decide to quit buying our bonds the gig is up, the change this nation undergoes will be nothing like the "change" your messiah promised you. Romney isn't much better, just a slower death. I pity you fools who argue as to how to arrange the deck chairs on the Titanic the U.S. has become.

Tea Parties are for little girls with imaginary friends.

So, how old are you little girls (Professor, Neighbor, "Tell the Truth"? Does your Mommy know you are playing "Tea Party" on the internet with stuffy old men? Tsk Tsk Tsk.

Poor sore losers. Maybe they should rename themselves "FLEA Party"....seems much more fitting!

I wouldn't touch any of you little delusional tea partying girls with a ten-foot pole! Your racist, delusional, whacked-out sheep way of so-called "thinking" might be contagious! You need to just stick to your little tea parties with your little imaginary friends and leave the intelligent political discussions to the grown-ups, mmmk?

Shows your intelligence level little girl.....I'm not IN Lemont, but my ISP server might be. duh.

The Tea Party has good intentions, but they are unfocused. You cannot believe govt spending to be bad but blindly support all military operations. Government spending holds a great deal of taxpayer theft no matter what the source. These people got worried about government spending for the wrong reasons...now maybe if they continue to study, will become true patriot libertarians in the future. Any time people spend money that is not their own there will be graft. Every government program has become broke because of this certain outcome. Social Security may have worked but by my above statement someone will always loot the fund. People that depend on Federal help for their money and survival i.e. American Indians and African Americans are living in the worst conditions of all for half a century. You would think by now that people would run from federal support. The Elderly are next to be screwed.
