Guy, I think you and your two Commie friends, are in the wrong Country. America was a land of opportunity for those that wanted to work for it. The Tea Party does have a different agenda than the current administration. We want jobs to be available, not regulations that are killing the coal industry, and businesses that provide jobs with the lie of Global Warming and whatever other crisis the Commie Left can come up with. We want Insurance Companies to be able to cross State lines, we want frivolous Law suites stopped so prices can come down (loser pays all). We want to find a way to help those with pre existing conditions, but Obmacare isn't about better insurance it is about control. We want the National debt to lower not keep raising, where does it end (what brilliant plan do you three have, keep borrowing)? We want our border protected and illegal Immigration stopped not promoted. You guys are right about one think America is waking up.

BCF never posts his own stuff, it is always something that someone else wrote.

The TEA party's star is rising. Remember 2010? Obamacare has just added more fuel to their already speeding train.

The Tea Party is a misdirected movement, possibly because they are funded in part by the Koch brothers and promoted by right wing talk show puppets. These two entities are strong supporters of the GOP. If the Tea Party would abandon the mantra of the far right, that "GREED IS GOOD" and move to eliminate the bribery money of lobbyists and super-pacs I might believe that they are about meaningful change. I admire anyone standing behind their beliefs but I think that it is counter-productive to highjack our government to further their agenda. This was about more than Obamacare. The Tea Party had a laundry list of demands. The American way is if you are not happy with legislation then you have a process to amend or repeal not cost Americans 24 million dollars on a no result shutdown.

Maverick, you want to talk about legislation that will set our country on the right track? How about revocation of voting rights for those that are on public assistance? How about competency exams for voters. How about voter ID's? We are never going to climb out of this hole if all a person has to do to be elected is promise free stuff to people in exchange for votes. By the way, such a system is not freedom, it is a slow painful descent into slavery.

BCF, you think there are 0 jobs bills? What do you think a repeal of Obamacare would do? It would decrease unemployment.

What "gun bills" were proposed by republicans? I'd like to see proof.

rpg, are you serious about revoking the voting rights of someone who is on a federal subsidy. Well, then maybe we should disenfranchise the corporate farmers and the oil companies for the billions that they collect in subsidies. Who would you have compose the exams for voter competency. The high schools don't even turn out students who are educated about the functions of government. Even the tea party doesn't realize to change the law you must amend it or repeal it not shut down the government and try to negotiate the erasure of a bill that the Supreme Court even upheld.

I disagree, RPG0340. Most of what BCF posts comes out of his/her behind. His/her posts are so far out there I do not believe he/she can prove a tenth of them

Who would have thought Obama would sink this low?

He lied to our country, and he lied to the leader of one of our most valuable ally nations. Where's your outrage, lefties? Imagine if BUSH had done this?

BILD: President knew about Merkel phone in '10 -- and allowed it to continue...

WASHINGTON — Whether miffed over spying revelations or feeling sold out by U.S. moves in the Middle East, some of the United States’ closest allies are so upset that the Obama administration has gone into damage-control mode to ensure the rifts don’t widen and threaten critical partnerships. The quarrels differ in their causes and degrees of seriousness. As a whole, however, they pose a new foreign policy headache for an administration whose overseas track record is seen in many quarters at home and abroad as reactive and lacking direction.In Europe and the Middle East, rifts that once would’ve been quietly smoothed over have exploded into headlines and public remonstrations.

Throughout much of the twentieth century, business leaders and public officials assumed that the great danger to the American polity would come from the far left—from communist revolutionaries or New Left anarchists. But it never really did, and doesn’t today. The real threat to America’s large republic is from the far right. The middle-American radicals represent the dark intolerant side of American politics. They reject the attempt, beginning in the Progressive Era, to smooth the rough edges of a capitalism that, left to its own devices, leads to monopoly, inequality, and poverty. And they promote the polarization of the parties, making a functioning government impossible and throwing into question the Constitution they claim to revere. - John B. Judis

I wonder what book or newspaper BCF got his diatribe from? You can bet it is libtard talking points someplace. Just a thought for everyone Tea Party people will never vote for a libtard but they will vote for a republican and a republican will vote for a tea party member never a libtard. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. We will see in Nov. 2014.

I'm still waiting on that answer BCF. Are you not answering because you have no valid answer or because you lied about the gun bills?

Also BCF, why do you only post other people's garbage? Are you yourself not capable of formulating an intelligent argument?

Furthermore, your screen name is hilarious. The country has been in a steady decline for the last 5 years and getting worse with each passing day yet you are still blaming Bush.

For those who don't know, John B. Judis, who BCF quoted, is a liberal journalist, grew up in Chicago, and attended Berkley, and a founding editor of the SOCIALIST REVOLUTION.

Just sayin'. (Now you know where he/she is coming from.)

@maverick,

You're dang right I'm serious. You should not be allowed to vote, if you don't have a horse in the race. For example, if you haven't held a job and are on welfare you shouldn't be able to cancel out the vote of someone that pays for you to survive. You can blame liberals for the lack of understanding of our system of government by students. They were too busy teaching kids that our system of government was started by old, rich, racist, white guys.

Well said, RPG0340.

If one is a leach on our nation, they should not be permitted to vote for more leaching.

The lefties like to talk a lot about greed. Which is true greed, wanting to keep what one has earned, or wanting to take what others have earned for your own?

Why The Founding Fathers Only Wanted Qualified People To Vote ...

aolanswers(dot)com/questions/founding_fathers_wanted_qualified_1868172757412

Originally, our forefathers only allowed educated land owners to vote. You know. Like Tea Party folks, as opposed to the Occupy Wall Street folks the dems used to laud. There was a reason for this.

"You mean like the wars my taxes funded that I didn't think we should be involved in?"

You pay federal income tax? I'm shocked.

But yes, the wars that stopped terrorists from attacking America and kept you safe.

Well, the consolate in Benghazi is technically America territory, so I guess I'm wrong.

"It doesn't matte what the Founders wanted. "

wow.

What about Karl Marx? Does what he wanted matter?

"They also wanted slavery"

Only a few. And they were later defeated in that matter by a Republican President. Remember?
