A comment I would expect from a Californian with a name "stupid people" Although you used people as a plural. Are you more than 1 person? Your name should read "stupid person"
Tell us, how is your stateís budget doing? Out of that crisis yet? That is the problem with liberal states. You spend and spend like a teenage girl in a mall with her dadís credit card.
Considering Californians pay more in Federal tax dollars than what it receives in return I would say California is doing rather well considering the circumstance. Had States such as your own could self support itself then the need for so much of California's gracious federal taxation would not be necessary and then California would have more cash for itself.

I know the truth hurts, especially stupid people like you.

To set the record straight the TEA PARTY isn't republican or democratic. People make assumptions, what ever happened to finding out first before you say something.
Whatever, it's a dissenting group of Republicants trying to reinvent themselves with Sarah Palin as their leader.

What a joke...

Elections surely aren't the answer. As Ken Livingstone once famously said. "If elections made any difference, they wouldn't allow them." Any real change would require that people take control of their own lives, but I don't see much chance of that happening.

You're probably right, but how would we acheive this change? Every time we vote for the new guy, he ends up being as corrupt as the last.

Not many. If you let people rule you, they're going to exploit you as much as they can. I don't see any indication that Americans are ready to eliminate rulers.

I agree with Kathleen. Historically the "Tea Party" was a group of "colonists" who were mad at King George III and symbolically and literally threw the tea into Boston Harbor. The British were taxing the colonists heavily with no representation (Taxation without Representation) Today "Tea Party" is not a political party at all. It is a lot of regular Americans tired of being taxed up to our eyeballs.

In fact, we're not taxed up to our eyeballs by Western standards. What the so-called Tea Party movement is is the Sarah Palin for President movement. Which is fine. But there'd be more truth in advertising if they just called themselves that.

If the government raised tax for the sole purpose of paying off our debt, I think I would be okay with it. But the govt is spending more and more and our debt is growing and growing. Average Joe who has a job, a family and a mortgage, knows about budgeting better than our government. Would average Joe (with Credit Card debt, mortgage, and car loan, go out and incur more debt? No. a responsible adult would use pay their debt down before taking out another loan.

Just want to add that I am more for Michele Bachmann running for President in 2012 these days than for Sarah Palin. I find that if Palin had never been picked VP of John McCain, then Bachmann would have emerged as the favorite to run.

As such, I have seen both differ on a few things over the last few months. Palin talked at the Tea Party Convention, but she had nothing to do with the movement. Bachmann was part of the Tea Party movement and still holds office. But she refused to speak at the Tea Party Convention and spoke at CPAC. While Palin is skeptical of CPAC and did not speak.

It might seem trivial, but if both run for the Republican nomination then we have an interesting race on our hands.

I know that in some corners of the web people have become too defensive of Palin and go after anyone and everyone who might run. Thus, I saw the sniping away at Bachmann, who some actually would want as a Palin running mate.

Anyhow, Palin, Romney and Ron Paul shouldn't be the only ones who run in 2012.

Bachmann would do a heck of a lot better than McCain in 2008 and not have the Palin Baggage. Sure the left goes after Bachmann. They go after every one that is nominated anyways since they are the opponents. Better someone bright and qualified than the media's choices.

I recently heard a few speeches by NJ Gov Chris Christie. I like the way he talks and he doesn't seem to mind pi**ingoff the NJ Dems.

I would like to see him throw his hat into the ring.
