  1. This is awesome! Did you know that just today more then 140 prominent conservatives sent a letter to all U.S. Republican legislators telling them that in NO way are they to deal with those democrats on that fiscal cliff thing".and telling them that there WILL be consequences if the do! From the letter: "If Republicans cave in now, when it really counts, next time you will be weaker, because your conservative base will be outraged". "Many who worked hard to elect you in the past will never lift a finger for you again." I just love it when conservatives truly stand up for America! Wow! Even Virginia Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clearance Thomas, signed it! Just like we have been saying all along".those Republicans better toe the TeaPublican line and say NO to everything".or we are going to run them right out of office come the next primary election! We TeaPublicans WILL take back America in 2014 and 2016".and we WILL take back any un-patriotic Republicans too!

  2. Typical small mined thinking coming from our right wing Tea party nuts.. So ideology is more important than protecting the country from financial disaster? How really is that being patriotic when you don't even know the definition of patriotic? Look it up! Get off your high horse soap box and breath a long dose of reality! Your parties ideas lost the election!

    Its always funny when people talk about taking something back.. what do you think you ever had that was taken from you?

    We have the lowest tax rates since I cant remember when! Businesses are making record profits. Rich people are rolling in rising wealth.. What do you want to take us back too?? Higher taxes? Lower business profits? Fewer wealthy people? Is that the new Tea platform? Think before you say stupid things like take it back.. what time in history exactly do you want to take us back to? Why would we want to go backwards rather than forward in to the future? You guys make no sense at all!

  3. They never made sense. Most tea party types are generally uneducated and just reactionary. They blame their woes on the government and never look at themselves. It's always someone else's fault and they think lower taxes are the answer to everything from global warming to same sex marriage. Most of these people make above the poverty line. They feel paranoid because they're not educated so they lash out. They should take some community college class on how government works.
