I've been on SH for a little while, and I've noticed that Tea Party folks get a lot of heat from some on the LEFT. I am posing this question in order to try and understand where the disagreement is.

Personally I agree with the TEA party that we need tax reform. I also agree that we need to keep taxes low and cut spending. I share their concern over our MASSIVE national debt and our TRILLION+ dollar annual budget deficits.

herman cain
I often hear some on the LEFT calling out TEA party members for their alleged 'obstruction' methods in the House. I have also heard the concern they have over their growing influence in the Senate and over many state governors.

But what exactly is it you disagree with? How can we address these things and make some real change. Is it the leadership? Is it certain legislation that you find harmful? Is it just a difference of economic ideologies?


I wanna know what you think? Leave me a comment now and share with everyone who loves this country. And of course RAVE ALL DAY!!!!
SOUND OFF!!!

    Obama has the gay vote.

    But Pedophiles don't vote for Democrats.

    Pedophiles vote for Republicans.

    Simply because most Pedophiles ARE Republicans.

    That includes Gay Pedophiles . . . Like Jerry Sandusky . . .

    . . . And maybe even Mitt what's his name

    Funny but I've been to my share of TEA Parties and never ever have I seen anything like THAT. There are speakers, songs and discussions. No urinating on cars, no problem with the police, no tents staked out in city parks, no crude signs, no members being dragged off by the police and no trash strewn on the ground. The events I have attended have been held on a Saturday. People leave after the event to go home and trim their lawns, wash their cars and pay their bills. Yep I am a PROUD member of the TEA Party.

    From your description, today's Tea Party rallies sound EXACTLY like the peaceful but enthusiastic Nazi rallies all the better people attended to promote nationalism and Aryan supremacy in Hitler's Germany.

    And then these good Nazis would go home and trim their lawns, wash their cars, pay their bills, and clean their Schmeissers.

    Yep, they were all PROUD members of the Nazi Party.

    . . . And so wonderfully civilized !

    The Tea Party was originally organized to protest against Wall Street as well.

    Rick Santelli launched the Tea Party in his anti-Wall Street rant by saying that "he would organize a Chicago Tea Party in July, where capitalists would dump 'some derivative securities into Lake Michigan.'"

    http://www.infoplease.com/us/...


    But the Tea Party is made up of herd animals. The Koch brothers and other plutocrats were able to round up the herd an point them in the opposite direction.

    Now the Tea Party protests against Wall Street protesters.

    You idiots were duped into taking a 180 turn, and you actually think it was your idea!

    . . . pathetic.

    Tea Party members on this board have referred to President Obama as a socialist, a Marxist, a communist, as being illegitimate and not born in this country, and it's all political BS. They spew their propaganda and show their ignorance of what a socialist or a communist or a Marxist really is. Thanks to political operatives like Karl Rove and others, comity and civility in American politics is gone, and the Tea Party seems to have embraced these ideas with enthusiasm.

    Truthfully, in my forty years of voting, I have NEVER seen so much disrespect for the President of the United States as I have seen in the last three and a half years for the current President, and it angers and saddens me.

    their racism, their hate, their child like views of the world and their fake-ness, their totally lack of understanding history and the way they were no where to be seen when Bush ran up massive debts, and not one word for them and the name TEA-PARTY



    Taxed

    Enough

    Already



    Especially since one of the first things Obama did was lower Taxes.

    I am not racist, I do not hate, I am not child like in my behaviors, I am down to earth and I do understand history. I do realize President Bush caused debt as most presidents do. It is unfortunate. THIS president though has added so much more. This prez has spent like a sialor on leave. Thanks the Lord the House is filled with people of reason to check what he does.
    I also realize the defintion of the word tolerance and if treated kindly respect others' views. I thank my parents for instilling that trait into me.

    Obama was forced to spend in order to stimulate the economy and to keep us out of a second depression. He did not inherit a budget surplus and no wars from his predecessor as Bush did from Clinton. He inherited a severe recession, out-of-control deficits, a climbing debt, two wars, a trillion-dollar boondoggle for the pharmaceutical industry, and a cratering stock market, and he had to deal with them the day he took office.

    The most significant thing he did was enact ARRA, which provided for a middle-class tax cut, a program to help save a million essential jobs in state and local governments, and a WPA-style program to hire four million people who had been unemployed. Five million jobs were added or saved, meaning five million workers were paying taxes, becoming consumers for the economy, and no longer requiring unemployment benefits. The only problem with ARRA is it was too small, but it was money well spent.

    The House? We have the TPers to thank for the downgrade of the nation's credit rating, according to John Chambers, the chairman of S&P's rating committee. He said the intransigence of the TP faction in the House, and their willingness to allow the country to default on its obligations, caused S&P to reduce our customary AAA rating. Lending nations just don't like to hear that kind of talk.

    Take care, Betz.
