I Think The Tea Party People Who Are In This Group Are Being Dishonest!I just replied to a cross-dresser who posted a story here in this group 2 days ago, on Sept. 19.
This person's "story" was about his/her feeling that Progressives are idiots, not tea baggers.
Isn't that being dishonest?
I'm not going to "flag" the story, or anything like that, but It did make me mad enough to write a rebuttal to him/her;
and that's the reason for this story; so, I guess I should be grateful to him/her for that.
After reading his/her story & several of his/her comments to replies; I posted a reply myself; but he/she deleted it within minutes.
What makes someone like that tick?
Why can't they find a nice Republican, pro-Tea Party group to join; instead of coming here to a group of folks who truly do believe the Tea Party People Are Idiots?
Why be dishonest about what you believe?
Are they so stupid that they think that coming to this group and posting an "anti'-progressive", pro-Tea Party story is a good idea?
Should we all go join all the Republican "I hate the Democrats" groups?
I don't think so.
That would be stooping to their level.
They scare me, not because of their political philosophy, which is scary in itself, but because even though they make up at the most
10% to 15% of the eligible voters; they do have the backing of people like Grover Norquist, The Koch Brothers, John Boehner, Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, and the rest of the far right religious fundamentalists who have moved the Republican Party
so far to the right, that true "conservatives" like Barry Goldwater and William Miller are probably turning over in their graves.
(William Miller was Barry Goldwater's running mate in 1964)
Sire, I think the Tea Party people are idiots; but they're dangerous idiots.
They are now forming their own Super Committee.
They will be meeting in Orlando on Sept 23 to "propose their own debt solutions"; but that's not the scary part.
This meeting in Orlando is being convened by the large conservative political group called FreedomWorks.
"FreedomWorks for America aims to empower the leader-less, decentralized community of the Tea Party movement as it continues it's hostile take-over of the GOP establishment".
"FreedomWorks was formed in 2004 and is headed by former House Majority Leader Richard Army.
[they] claim a full-time staff in ten states and over 800,000 grassroots volunteers nationwide"
Is anyone else out there fearful of this "merger" of the Tea Party and FreedomWorks?
