She should move to Venezuela or Cuba.. let Hugo or Fidel run her life.
"This obscurity has all changed. Their market has grown exponentially since 2008. Two reasons are Ellen Brown and Ron Paul, both of whom are opposed to the Federal Reserve. Their opposition gave negative publicity to the FED. This rallied the Tea Party troops. A third reason was the economic crisis in the fall of 2008 and the Federal bailouts of the banks. The Greenbackers are riding the growing wave of opposition to the Federal Reserve System.
The strategic problem is this: the Tea Party movement is filled with people who have no economic understanding. They cannot distinguish Ron Paul's opposition to the FED, based on the gold coin standard, from Ellen Brown's opposition, based on a fiat money standard. They are intellectually defenseless."
The Tea Party is made up of the Gullable Generation, the middle aged morons who have believed every stupid thing, from McCarthy's Commie witchhunt to Generalissimo Bush's evildoers, since they were born. What else can one expect from people who get their healthcare from TV evangelists.
Let's face it, the whole country is pretty stupid. We don't do a good job of raising intelligent skeptics
Most of the Tea Party members I have met are small business owners in their 30's and 40's and retires in their 50's and 60's. These groups have a lot more common sense than any other groups in politics right now.
Small business owners are facing massive tax increases in a very weak economy and retires have watched in recent years the 2000 and 2008 blowouts to the retirement savings. It should be very simple to see the political uprising here.
