    Well if you listen to the white hating bigots accusing people of racism on MSM "news" channels - you might forget that the TEA party is an acronym for "TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY".

    So yes Reagan would have been 100% in support of the TEA party.

    No, Reagan would never have embraced the Tea Party. He was a true conservative NOT an extremist like the Tea Partiers are. In fact, I don't think even Goldwater would have embraced the Tea Party and he was pretty far right.

    I voted for Carter; and then I voted for Reagan..I worked through the years Carter was President; and saw what he did to the country...he was destroyed in a landslide; and then I worked through the years Reagan was President; and then I saw what he did FOR the country....he worked with the other side; and got things done..and he didn't take garbage from countries that had our demise on their agenda...yes, Reagan would have liked the Tea Party...up to a point...he never liked screamers; the more you screamed and protested; the less he listened...

    Not even. Reagan would never have been able to qualify as a Republican let alone consider the Tea Party even a valid party. He'd be considered a confused lefty.

    And Eisenhower would have been considered a Communist today.

    The defend you position. Today Reagan would be laughed out of the party and based upon the facts Eisenhower, even as a decorated general, would be considered a left wing socialist for defending SS and embarking upon HUGE public works projects.

    Today, these are the VERY THINGS that the Republican/Tea Party nit wits are stonewalling against

    No responsible evaluation and direct observation of the current three headed hydra of the New Fascist Party of American, The Republicans owned by the second head of the Hydra - the Rabid Radical Religious Reich, back by the third head of the Hydra - the billionaire industrial capitalists dead set against the middle class and working poor.

    Nope, This Liberal is playing with a Full Deck. HISTORY backs up every statement I've made. It happened in Germany and it is happening here.

    The Republican/Tea Party has become the NEW American Fascist party and will stop an nothing to bring their party to power as will their backers, as I noted above.

    Don't believe me, READ THE HISTORY OF THE RISE OF HITLER AND HIS PARTY. Massive recession (post depression), huge unemployment, a suddenly popular nationalism brand of politics backed by the RCC and two of the Protestant religions PLUS the backing by the industrial companies like Mercedes Benz, BMW, Messerschmidt, Krupp Industries (steel / Tank Maker)

    Krupp Industries trademarked symbol, NOTE the three rings in support of the Trinity beliefs of its founder. Alfred Krupp was the bankroll behind the rise of Hitler. Same as today with the Billionaire backing Romney.

    Tell me what does the TEA party movement advocate that Reagan would have objected to. I believe the former President would have been completely in agreement with the objectives of the TEA party.

    Again, tell me what you believe they support that he wouldn't also.

    Reagan would not have liked the huge divide they have created. Reagan was smart enough to know that diplomacy is always a two way street, he understood the art of negotiation and refused to let the other side hate his party. Reagan was a communicator, he new not to let happen what has happened because this will only create gridlock and it has. Today the new Republicans that the Tea Party helped elect are puppets that dare not go against the Tea Party, because the Tea Party with the help of Michael Savage will turn on you at the drop of a hat. Romney is till suffering from Michael savages attacks, even the Tea Party trashed Romney. Shame on both, they have both destroyed the GOP. Palin was the beginning of the destruction, and the Tea Party will be there end. The GOP was always very respected but not with puppets like Palin just saying what she thinks people want to hear.

    Christian, I don't agree. What the TEA party's main objectives are to force spending cuts. Have you noticed the downgrade of our country's credit rating last year and the one coming up? That is due to borrowing 40 cents of every dollar in spending. Have our leaders in Washington done anything to resolve it? Absolutely not. That is why the TEA supporting representitives try their best to not raise the debt ceiling because NOBODY is doing ANYTHING to resolve the issue. If the debt ceiling isn't raised they remove any choice and spending MUST be cut. I can realistically see no other way it will happen.

    Actually I did not like Ronald Reagan as an actor or as the acting President. However, I like to think that the man would certainly not have gone so far as to endorse anything the Tea Party people advocate. They are the most negative of movement and just against everything that smacks of progess.

    Some here consider Reagan a liberal, but it flies in the face of facts. The GOP has moved it's base platform to the right since then. To not understand that fact means people are merely looking through their Ultra Conservative glasses and not seeing the truth in the situation. I guess the old adage is true, those that do not remember history are doomed to repeat it.

    I did not vote for Reagan, but to sully his memory with stupid comments about being a RINO and the like is beyond the pale. He was elected twice on the Republican ticket, he and GHBush had 12 years of Republican Presidency, seems the facts trump these opinions.
