I'm not sure that's accurate. Not agreeing with what the government is doing is very different from not understanding how it works.



Actually, it seems like they are shouting dissent in the name of patriotism. Which isn't that far off from what the Left was doing two years ago.



In the thread about the AZ bill, I notice a lack of substantive alternatives being offered. So why should this poster?

I don't know an awful lot about the Tea Party -- I don't roll with anyone from their ranks -- but I'm a bit tired of the mindset that belittles anyone who disagrees with you for being small-minded bigots. It's an easy charge to lob, but it has far less basis in reality than we'd like. It conveniently does away with having to engage people who think differently, and it's one of the real obstacles to actual genuine political change.
Excellent Post Nathan . The midset that belittles anyone who disagress. thats exactly it. It is a divsion from the real issue or purpose at hand.

It has grown to hate in many. I dont hate anyone, and I expect no one to agree with me. It's the fact if we can't have the discussion any discussion, there is nothing left.

We are all in this together, and many with true ways and ideas, and many trying to take us down a road we may not like. There is no more important time in our history, for us to learn to talk and be civil again.

we have to.

I don't have time to go back through the thread and look for all the posts I've already made of their stupid signs equating Obama with Hitler. If you can't remember all that then you haven't been paying attention anyway.

Then you might want to look closer at this fringe group you think is so noble and upstanding.

Birthers, homophobes, and those who think Obama is Stalin are frightened and small-minded.

When conservatives get some sensible people speaking for them again, I'll listen.

Wasn't so long ago FYMers were equating Bush with Hitler or Stalin too. So there you go.
