James Hoffa: Tea Party 'Declared War on Us'

Look at all of these treasonous Democrats! Look at how full of treason they are for standing up to a War that was started for controversial reasons! All of those WMDs that were found out there in Iraq, and the horrible strategies applied by the leaders of our government at that time. Look at them undermine all of the troops out in Iraq by saying, hey we should stop sending troops to Iraq and end this war already... seriously? The funny thing about this post is that they were all right in what they were saying.  (Sep 8, 2011 | post #63)

James Hoffa: Tea Party 'Declared War on Us'

You know what, I think I'll man up to that comment. You are completely right, look how absolutely horrible all of these Democrats are opposing a war that was started to supposedly find WMDs which never existed in the first place. Look how dumb and full of libel they are for standing up to a War that they didn't support. That makes them stupid doesn't it? Standing up for something you believe? And to say that it was all Democrats that pushed for such things is just pure ignorance, unless you are intentionally lying. "The States' Rights Democratic Party ' (usually called the Dixiecrats) was a short-lived segregationist, socially conservative political party in the United States in 1948. It originated as a breakaway faction of the Democratic Party in 1948, determined to protect what they portrayed as the southern way of life beset by an oppressive federal government, and supporters assumed control of the state Democratic parties in part or in full in several Southern states. The States' Rights Democratic Party opposed racial integration and wanted to retain Jim Crow laws and white supremacy in the face of possible federal intervention. Members were called Dixiecrats. (The term Dixiecrat is a portmanteau of Dixie, referring to the Southern United States, and Democrat.)" That reminds me of a group that has been in the news a lot lately...  (Sep 8, 2011 | post #62)

James Hoffa: Tea Party 'Declared War on Us'

You may not have said it, just as you may still be a true Tea Party member in the fact that you are concerned purely for smaller government and fiscal responsibility. But that doesn't mean your peers are not doing it. But I really do agree about needing to take ownership for the things we have done. Obama needs to take ownership for some of his failures just as the Tea Party and Republicans need to take responsibility and say hey, maybe some of these things can't get done because we are obstructing them.  (Sep 8, 2011 | post #55)

And here you are saying don't worry about any of that, look even further back at Jim Crowe laws! Bush is certainly more relevant to politics today than Crowe laws are, maybe that's why Bush keeps coming up?  (Sep 8, 2011 | post #53)

This is absolutely true, and this was probably the only concerns that true Tea Party members had for a while. But in recent times the Tea Party has radically changed. It is no longer fiscal matters that they want. Candidates like Rick Santorum and Michelle Bachmann are most definitely extremely socially conservative and they are held in high regards by Tea Party members. This may not be the case for you, you may be one of those original who still have intentions based off of those three goals, but a majority of your peers do not. I am sorry if you fail to see this, but it is true. As for Boeing, they moved to South Carolina which is a right-to-work state intentionally, knowing that it would weaken their union and was used as intimidation to prevent the union from striking. This means that Boeing would be able to drop wages, and reduce the standards for working conditions and the unions couldn't do anything about it. The actual lawsuit is based on the fact that this is an illegal retaliation towards strikes by union members in their plant near Seattle, based on this move and by public statements made by Boeing executives, the NLRB thinks it to be illegal. Is it Fascism when you stand up for union workers? I thought everyone was calling that socialism  (Sep 8, 2011 | post #60)

Why is it we can look back at the past here and criticize this but whenever someone brings up Bush we have to forget the past and focus on now? Just pick one already  (Sep 8, 2011 | post #51)

I will give him the fact the Tea Party is more of a libertarian movement then authoritarian, at least as far as I have seen. But if the country ever started to move towards libertarianism, in my opinion the corporations would simply fill the authority vacuum and take control  (Sep 8, 2011 | post #38)

Ok, the Tea Party is a radical, nationalist political ideology. It advocates a single party state by constantly and repeatedly putting down anything that involves democrats or people who don't think like them. They push for Church in schools which can easily be seen as indoctrination and control of family policies. The Tea Part definitely wants to purge the Democrats, socialists, and liberals from office which to them are the cause of decadence and degeneration in order to cause a rebirth of the US mostly basing their unity on Christian, suprapersonal, beliefs and a common ideology. The Tea Party wants strong leadership only from their candidates shooting down anyone who tries to break their collective identity, and have no problems with declaring war on other countries, especially those evil Muslim countries that are coming to destroy our way of life, and would not have problems with acts of violence against them if it were encouraged. Anyone who doesn't agree with the Tea Party is seen as a liberal, communist, socialist, etc... which the Tea Party strongly opposes. And if you knew what Communism was, you would know that they want to abolish the state, the one thing that Fascism puts above everything else.  (Sep 8, 2011 | post #37)

A push for creationism gains in Springboro

He never claimed that you said that, that is just the next logical step if Creationism were to be adopted in schools. They would have to include every origins story from every culture as to not discriminate. I know it is difficult to believe but Christianity is not the only religion with an origin story out there.  (Sep 7, 2011 | post #371)

I can beat Obama - Palin

Not only did you deny that ALEC is actually a problem, you blame it on the liberals too? Wow, we have gone beyond just denial now we have to blame everything we don't like on the people we don't like even when it is obviously a real issue  (Sep 7, 2011 | post #7575)

Obama Conversation With Tea Partier Gets Heated

This is a perfect example of what she is talking about... she only mentioned fox one time in each of those posts. The rest of it had nothing to do with fox, you just need an excuse to deny everything she just brought up, so you don't read it. No wonder you can't put up any logical debate.  (Sep 7, 2011 | post #2225)

Silly me, I forgot to address this partIf 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?  (Sep 7, 2011 | post #7)
