Typical Tea Party Member

  1. Here is a quote from a typical tea party member. This is the bright future that awaits us when Tea Party members get elected. Need I say more?

  2. Are they gonna do a Mark Williams on him :D
  3. Really? Because I am a Tea Party member, and I haven't ever heard anything like that... Can you explain why I have heard no such thing amongst Tea Pary supporters and members yet this is somehow "typical"?

    BTW I found a few pics of typical democrats which I wondered if you'd like to comment on?



  4. Though I am not a Tea Party member, I did attend a large meeting to find out what they were about. There were over 200 people there and several speakers. There were many points of view expressed, none of them racist. The one thing that everyone agreed upon (and was the primary topic of conversation) was that neither Democrats nor Republicans could be trusted to be fiscally responsible with the taxpayers hard-earned money and therefore a new party was needed. What surprised me was the anger shown toward Reagan and Bush by many of the attendees. Both of them were called irresponsible and profligate spenders. I was not expecting that from a group of mostly conservatives. I say "mostly conservative" because I also met a number of Democrats who were left of center on social issues (abortion, gay marraige, etc.), but were fed up with Washington's out-of-control spending.


  5. Old news, in modern times the neo nazi and KKK members support Ron Paul and the libertarians, I wonder why.


    The Ron Paul Campaign and its Neo-Nazi Supporters


  6. The tea party is just rebranding of the Repubs after the Bush disaster, given their stand on most issues they do not even come close to representing public opinion.

    "79% of Tea Party supporters consider themselves Republicans"


    Americans Look to Wealthy to Help Save Social Security

    Tea Party Leader: We Should Abolish Social Security

    Polls Find Wide Support For Jobless Benefit Extension

    Sharron Angle advocates halting unemployment benefits to force jobless to seek work
  7. Well I am a member, who has also acted in administrative capacity etc. That's exactly the point, out with the republicrats. Wake up! The only functional difference between Obama and Bush is healthcare! The rhetoric might be different, but the actions are more or less the same. I'd venture to say that it is fundamentally a libertarian movement, there are some fiscal leftists involved who simply want to gut the current regime and feel that small government is better than THIS government. I'd say on average the most commonly held view is the need for smaller and more limited government, both socially and fiscally.

  8. Typical Tea Party Leader

    Sharron Angle Opposed Aid To Katrina Victims

    Sharron Angle make extremism look moderate. During her 2006 congressional bid, Angle said she opposed a bill that gave $62 billion in relief to victims of Katrina in 2005. Only 11 House members opposed the bill and it had unanimous support in the Senate (h/t Political Correction).

    During an interview on conservative KLAV radio in 2005, which she once had up on her site, Angle invoked Indiana Rep. Mike Pence, who she claimed said he was voting “no” because the Katrina money was not carefully accounted for. The truth is Pence actually wanted the money to be offset – Human Events was so proud of him, it gave Pence “Man of the Year” in 2005.

    But Pence actually voted FOR the $62 billion. His “yea” is right there in the congressional record after someone named Pelosi.

    The day after the Sept. 8, 2005, vote, even House Majority Leader Tom DeLay told The Wall Street Journal: “It’s too important to play politics with. It’s too important to second-guess.”

  9. When Glenn Beck, a former drug user and college drop out gets up on a stage and says 'WE WANT TO TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK'. Is this what he means?

    Quote from HelloDollar:

    A quarter of the U.S. is Mud People. Another 8% are either Jews or fags. Throw in 2% Muslims and another 5% Asian. That means only 55% of America is straight, non-Jewish whites. Out of that remaining 55% I'd say a third or so are seedy, leftist whites. So that means, under 40% of America is actually worth shit. If Tea Party members are a third of the population, that means 80% of American's who aren't Ignorant Minorities support the movement.

    But the Left would rather paint the Tea Party as racists because they can't understand the Tea Party motivation and they only thing they can do is cry the old racist argument, just because the President is black.
