Truly when you say things like this, you ignorantly offend every person out there in the world who is not living in a free state. Get real.

I was speaking as a U.S. citizen.

Can you you restate your question?

I did not vote because I am not registered. The registration deadline kind of snuck up on me and I did not notice I'd missed out until it was too late. I did feel a bit guilty for not being able to vote today. I do not understand why registration needs a month before the election; I wasn't even thinking about it a month ago.

Go Sestak.

You mean more make believe bans?

More people that understand the constitution better than you?

People that actually respect science?

You'd be taken more seriously if you ever provided REAL answers, REAL examples, so far it's lies and misunderstandings.

I would love you more if you would simply ask a direct question.

OK, love you anyway

Do you understand when you post things like "Big Brother" that you're wrong and that there's nothing in the United States right now close to 1984? Or are you simply a sheep posting things you read somewhere?

Simple question.

I've tried that, many of us have... never seems to work. Many have given up, I haven't yet, but I'm close.

Just the other day I asked you to back up your statement by asking who hasn't followed the constitution?

Guess what? No answer.

Nothing like Big Brother?

Have you tried to purchase whole milk in a public school or tried to get salt on your fries?

Yeah, I'm one of the awake sheep.

The federal government has not banned whole milk in schools. I've showed you the links, the fact that you continually choose to ignore them makes me think you are blind.

Have you read 1984? Do you understand the difference between putting more health in public schools and brainwashing an entire population?

The school district of New York City is NOT the federal government(which is what YOU stated).

This is what I mean, you don't seem to actually read your sources. I thought reading was fun?

You're raging against federal bans that DO NOT exists. Why? Blindly following your websites? Misunderstanding? Why?

If the Tea Party truly believed in their ideology of fiscal pragmatism and legitimate constraints on the federal government, I'd listen to them. I can at least understand the theories behind those ideas, hell, I can even agree with some of them, too. No question we are blowing money on a lot of frivolous, unsustainable stuff. We could do with some downsizing of the federal government's power (one area you and I would certainly be in agreement on in regards to that would be our national defense). And I support health care reform, but I have no problem believing Medicare/Medicaid has its waste areas it could fix/get rid of, too. Tidy things up and get them in some order. I'm fine with that and will gladly discuss that with anyone who's interested.

The problem is, this particular Tea Party says that stuff because they know it gets them votes. But they'll never follow through on any of it, and their idea of "small government" is always hypocritical and confusing (see the gay marriage/abortion topics, that's a classic example right there: "Government, stay out of our lives! Except, ya know, when it comes to stopping those gays from marrying. Or when it comes to women making decisions about their bodies." Or, "Government is the problem, they've made things worse. Which is precisely why I'm running for a position in the very government I can't stand."), and in its most radical moments, almost anarchy-esque at times. Add in the religious extremism element as well as some of the racism that has surfaced, and that doesn't help matters, either.

Some of the ideas in and of themselves are fine. But this is not the group of people I would entrust to properly deal with them.
