    Fiscally, Barry and the Tea Party might be close. I doubt they are on social or even to foreign policy issues to a point.

    And WHY do LAWS exist? Control. If you LOVE Liberty as you Liberals say that you do? Then WHY do you applaud MORE LAWS to control others?

    You do realize that even from the grave? Goldwater called *you* out?

    I think what I see here is not liberalism you are spouting...but STATISM.

    Control. Liberal is too kind a word to use against you. Even Liberals love LIBERTY.

    Your bullsqueeze here against Goldwater? Cements whom you guys really are. Control Freaks. Goldwater is correct.

    true, but the Tea Party has taken Goldwater's platform and speeches to heart. Read what Goldwater actually said, and then compare with Tea Party proposals.

    They might repeat what he said, but they are not Goldwater conservatives. They were closer to it in the beginning, but then they let people like Palin and Bachmann take them over.
