    No, they have highlighted and brought debate to areas of the government that needs to be changed. They may be able to jumpstart the GOP into waking up and reigning government back in!!

    When the Tea Party gets the GOP to stop trying to oversee peoples sex-lives, I'll take them seriously when they talk about small government.

    They seem to have hurt the GOP, I do not respect the Tea Party because all they touch seems to get rotten. Palin kisses there ass because they bring many people to her rally's, I doubt she completely agrees with their platform. They are ultra right and ultra Christian right and although I am a Christian, I do not agree with making abortion illegal. I do think abortion laws needs to be looked at and women needing an abortion should be counseled and given other alternatives then if she needs to have an abortion so be it.

    Sounds to me like you're pro-choice. Those who claim the term "Pro-Life", don't think a woman should be allowed to have an abortion at all.
    I agree with you about the TP, although, I'm not so sure that Palin disagrees with them about anything.

    Nope. If anything it's revitalized it and set it on a winning path. The Tea Party was exactly what America needed.

    They hurt America taking away bargaining rights and downgrading Americas credit rating . Other then that they are the GOP in disguise who are trying to reinvent themselves

    You could have bargained with the unions like the auto factories in Michigan . All the new workers are making $10 an hour no longer $35 . I agree raises are about useless but tell that to the landlord the grocery store the gas and electric company the oil industry and bank wanting top dollar mortgage payments . If I remember correctly it was the tea party members lack of response trying to keep tax breaks for rich corporations outsourcing or not as they was holding unemployment extensions hostage in exchange that caused the credit downgrade . Lolz i guess the tea party figured if they screw up the credit rating Obama couldn't borrow anymore. Good plan but then what happened is the feds started printing worthless money .

    So you think workers should live as the third world ? You want to take bargaining rights so that corporations have total control and it will be illegal to bargain with them ? Hell why don't you just hand them the key being you have so much faith that corporations will do right by the people like they did before the unions was formed . Do you thinks it fair corporations pay a Mexican ten bucks a day and then sell their products for top Dollar here ? Do a little research on why the unions was formed before you give all our rights away . A little bargaining and talks go a long way union or not union but don't leave the workers defenseless . Its just so unamerican

    Exactly you do not need to depend on unions its your choice its the peoples choice to have bargaining powers . I just showed or rather the unions showed that it is possible to work with the unions as the auto industry did . You guys panic to easy running with your hands in the air thinking its the end of the world . Calm down think this thing out before you go giving up your rights . We all must work together not a party thinking they know whats good for everyone and going to smash anyone who gets in their way .

    I totally agree they need to stay out of politics or maybe take a vote at who the union member want instead of the union officials decide who they want . I'm not much on unions myself but still its each individuals person decision to decide not mine . What scares me is this taking of rights handing total control to corporations making it unlawfully to challenge them . And no I do not have faith in corporations to do the right thing as they have proved in the past not to .

    I believe in Unions, but collective bargaining seems to be hurting product quality and eating into city budgets. The pension plans for city jobs are decimating budgets in many major cities.

    The Tea Party, Neo Cons and Evangelical Social Conservatives have hurt the brand by pulling it to the right and away from moderates and independents.

    "we will have our country back."
    I here this all the time. Where has our country gone? Has our country fractured and I missed it? If it has what Balkanized section do we determine we live in? When was the duly elected government of the United States over thrown? Do we really have a dictator and the government information office is hiding it?
    Is your life, aside from the piss poor economy any different then it was five years ago?
    To listen to the radical right you would think this country looks like the Roman Empire a hundred years after the Visigoths sacked Rome.
    Sarah Palin and crowd want to start a third party away from the Republican Party is that what you all want? If it is count on another four years of the same under an Obie administration.
