Just more power to shoulder thru Obama's radical policies, programs, nominees.
NO to ALL democrats this go-round.
REbalance our government. One party CONTROL is not healthy for America.
Democrats dominate the Senate-Reid
Democrats dominate the Congress-Pelosi
Democrats are IN the White House-Obama
And Obama makes LIFETIME JUDICIAL NOMINEES!
change the course! NO to ALL democrats..your local democrats vote to keep Pelosi and Reid in their current positions. It has to be NO to ALL of them!

Whats interesting is that a this tea-bagger movement is a combination of Republicans and Libertarians...two very different philosophies.
When the rubber hits the road, huge differences will have to be exposed. The teabagger's dislike of the same opposition may be the glue that holds repubs and libertarians together, but it will only result in voting for policies one of the other doesn't agree with.
How will Rand Paul types convince conservative repubs that:
Libertarians oppose actions that compel, PROHIBIT, regulate or subsidize abortion, sterilization or any other forms of birth control.
While Repubs below abortion should be opposed. Even with Federal mandates prohibiting it.
A few others....
Same Sex Marriage
Libertarians: Hold that unions between adults are a private matter and should not be the subject of private licensing, regardless of sex. They call for the Feds and State to not restrict or give preferential treatment to private contracts between adults.
Republican Platform: We should amend the U.S. constitution and the Minnesota Constitution to define marriage as the legal union of a man and a woman.
Libertarians: "Call for an end to the ‘War on Drugs,’ which like all previous wars on drugs is in reality a war by the federal, state and local government on the people it is supposed to protect from war. Until such time as the prohibition of drugs is repealed,we call for an end to the denial of pain relieving drugs such as marijuana and heroin to those who are suffering.”
Republican Platform: The Republican Party platform has no provision advocating the legalization of marijuana and heroin.
Right To Life
Libertarians:“…terminally or hopelessly ill persons should have the right to die at the time and place and under the conditions of their own choosing.”
Republican Platform:“The U.S. Constitutions should be amended to restore legal protection for the lives of innocent human beings from conception to natural death.”
This will be interesting to see how repubs will forget all they stand for in order to not see a Dem in Office.
Oh wait, they did that already with Dubya.
