Only LOSERS resort to desperate accusations like this, because they know the "Tea Party" people have a huge impact on things now, and this will change policy to come in the future.

These socialist FASCISTS hate "Tea Party" people whom want limited government, low taxes, more freedom, GET OUT of private businesses' dealings, etc.

You FASCIST socialists need to go find a piece of land of your own and live there if you HATE freedom so much. Let's see how your society lasts with such tyrannical ideals as yours. lol! I'll laugh in your faces when I see it crumble to the ground, you pieces of trash FASCISTS!

Just so you know, this post only proves how politically ignorant you are...
Social Democrat Fascism

There is the political spectrum for you, as you can see it is not possible to be both of these things.
Furthermore, socialism is not a political philosophy, it is an economic philosophy.

You want lower taxes? Then how are we going to solve this debt crisis we are having? Decreasing government revenue seems like a great idea there doesn't it? Maybe we should increase taxes on the poor so they can help pay for it like some people have offered up... if the bottom 50% of Americans paid 50% tax on their total worth it would raise roughly the same amount of money as raising taxes 3% on the top 1% of Americans. The rich get taxed because they have the money to give.
More freedom? Wasn't it Bush who pushed for the Patriot Act in the first place?

Do you know what happens when the government leaves the economy alone? The middle class vanishes because of all of the greedy company owners that exploit the working class to maximize their profits at the expense of the workers. Companies outsource and continue to do so to maximize their profits, they could care less about the American people. If jobs in America were really the concerns of these companies they would take a small hit on their astronomical profits to help out. Sorry to tell yo companies don't have your interests at heart, so why support what they want?

I agree that only "losers" resort to such tactics, that's why it is no surprise that a few of the Tea Party signs are radical and offensive as well. Unfortunately some people overreact, but I agree they should have to deal with the consequences no matter what they believe in or what side they represent.

The only impact I see the Tea Part having is pushing independent voters away from Tea Party backed candidates, whether that is towards a Democrat or a different Republican doesn't matter.

How to deal with the debt? That's like asking 2+2=?

You CUT GOVERNMENT SPENDING, just like the Tea Party is DEMANDING! Cutting taxes (on businesses, as well as all citizens in general) makes them have more money to do with what they want, which is THEIR right, as they've worked for it. More taxes being used for government to abuse at their will is partial slavery. Yes, they are SOCIALIST fascists! You can try to twist and spin it all you want, like a typical socialist snake, but what I say is a fact.

Go try BSing someone else, since it's not working on me. I know your deceiving kind, you're not as smart as you think you are.

Both Republican politicians and Democrat politicians are to blame as a whole, with the Democrats coming out worst, especially within the last 2 years, but still both to blame, though the debt was being paid off under Bush (though he wasn't innocent either, of course).

You say the Patriot Act came out under Bush, okay, and why wasn't it abolished under Obama AND Democrat majority in the house? Hmmm!

BOTH sides are guilty, this is why I'm sick of morons constantly voting in "the lesser of two evils" - BOTH are at fault, so stop being MORONS and voting these dimwit criminals into office, like the simpletons you are!

Typical twist / spin morons with the BS politics talk, when really it's all very simple. They say "It's not so black & white simple!" But I say "Oh, yes it is! Your snake-criminal kind want to hide your BS in the gray complexity you claim the situation to be! But when you Keep It Simple Stupid, you get things done, and don't give room for liars and criminals to take advantage of the system and pass their agenda which goes against the tax payers' right to get what they work for and deserve!"

And about companies left alone going crazy? You're making excuses as to why big government should be taking control of private businesses? Typical fascist socialist. Leave it to the people not to buy their goods if so!

If dealing with the debt is such a simple problem then why does isn't it done? I agree cutting government spending would be a great idea, but that alone won't fix it.

So we cut taxes decreasing government revenue so now they have less money to put towards the debt, alright. Now the corporations and people have more of their money to spend out and about most likely buying products that have been produced by cheap labor that these same corporations outsourced their jobs for, okay. Now how does that fix the debt?

If the tax rates on the top 1% of Americans return to what they were before Bush took office then an estimated $68 billion a year would be taken in by the government, but who could ever imagine having such high taxes? Oh wait, that's how high they were.

And no, taxing is not partial slavery, especially when the government provides services such as transportation, education, and who could forget defense of our Nation?
