    ARROYO GRANDE, Calif. (MarketWatch) -- “What’s distinctive about the Tea Party is its anarchist streak -- its antagonism toward any authority, its belligerent self-expression, and its lack of any coherent program or alternative to the policies it condemns,” warns Jacob Weisberg in Newsweek. But why not three cheers for the Tea Party Express?

    Admit it, something historic is brewing. And yes, it’s good for America, even the anarchy. Revolution is renewal. Tea-baggers want to take on both parties, “restore honor” and “take back the country.” Bring it on, the feeling’s mutual.....
     
  2. Evolution is a myth because monkeys aren't turning into people.

    It would be a helluva site to go to the zoo in the morning walk past the monkey house, seeing those animals do their usual thing, throw shit at each other then by 3 PM they've turned into humans reading Shakespeare.

    These people should've be allowed to vote, and I mean the tea party people not the monkey people. No doubt Dr. Zaius would be displeased. o well.

    Why the hell isn't Lenny Dykstra running for office?
     
  3. The only ones who shouldn't be allowed to vote are the handout junkies, be they bank CEOs who didn't pay back TARP funds, welfare queens or union dogs. The founders principle of not allowing us to be a mass democracy ruled by a mob of gov't takers is spot on.

    LOL...very true. There is Evolution in mind, way of thinking, and many animals have evolved.

    However, the basic flawed theory of "EVOLUTION" is just that Flawed.

    We did not come from monkeys IMHO.

    Seems to be the case that the ass clown followers of OBAMA want the nation to think otherwise. IT's over for that party in NOV. OBAMA and his clowns in media and the rest who follow have destroyed the DEM party.

    Now, the REPs are on the line. If they can't bring back America, they will take the heat next.
     
  5. Imagine a society in which anyone receiving government benefits or aid would be barred from voting. Sure, there are a percentage of the population who paid into the system and receive those benefits in old age, and would have to be accounted for. However, think about how different the political landscape would be if there weren't a captive group of people who would vote for their own handouts at the expense of the country itself.

    In a way, it would bring back the concept of landowners as a voting class, which is quite clearly what is needed at this point. Instead, we have a political party for the disenfranchised that will cater to its every need in order to garner more votes. This concept is leading us off the rails at a rapid clip.
     
  6. That's all we need is for nails to run for office....
     
  7. Liberals have no authority, when referring to science.

    They fell for the global warming hoax - imagine science where you weren't allowed to see the data!
     
  8. Exactly. Obviously, this would be difficult to implement. Generally people who have paid in could vote (SS retirement, unemployment benefits if you've paid commensurate taxes over the years). I don't know about disabilities. Some are genuinely disabled but work as much or as long as they can. Others jump at any chance to stop work and get a disability check, sometimes resorting to questionable mental illnesses, etc.

    As I said, difficult to implement, but any step in this direction would be an improvement.
