That's rich considering the astroturf that organizes many Tea Party events. Gotta love Dick Armey.

Nice. That's the Reductio ad Hitlerum spirit.

(that's mock Latin by the way, not Tea Party misspelling)

But you have to ask yourself WHY? And this has been my issue since day one. WHY weren't these folks out when W was president? They(you) pretend that it's about big government, buy why did they wait? Everytime this is asked, no one answers. Why? Because the answer is scary. Look back at our first tea party thread, the supporters are clueless. Read it, it's entertaining. Some were already claiming their taxes have already been risen... some were claiming he has a Muslim agenda... I mean it's ridiculous.

Stop pretending. You and Reagan aren't small government, you're just for government that helps YOU and YOUR wallet. Period.

No, that's called "status quo" when you're a white straight christian male.

Well if you were "religious" you'd vote for your own self interest and that's all...
