    We shall see whether it varies much from the Young Republicans meetings and focuses more on actual policy than spending so much time discussing fund-raising. Already I noted that they didn't expect you to break off a chunk off every paycheck to join, unlike the republicans.

    It is an interesting question. If you ask any church pastor who runs a youth ministry, he or she will likely tell you that young people in general come up a little light in the pan. I see no reason political organizations wouldn't have the same experience with young people. If that translates into an open hand shoved into your face is another matter. I would think with the slush funds democrats have set up for future electioneering efforts, foreign pre-paid debit card donations and recent chumming of the corporate and union donor waters via corporate and pension fund bailouts, special tax breaks, politically targeted stimulus grants and unconstitutional seizure of private property for the benefit of supporters they would be in a better position to fore-go your contributions.

    You be sure to let us know what happens.:tongue:

    The problem with the Republicans was that they always wanted to discuss how to win elections and keep the Party in in the seat, not policies and how to help Americans. The problem with the Communists and anarchists is simply that they are deluded fools who seem to have no contact with the real world. The problem with those who call themselves Social Democrats is that they appear to all be dead.

    Exactly why the Tea Party movement has to be the adult in the room. Parties holding power for no other reason than self-promotion got us here. Grass roots involvement by informed patriots is the only hope we have to turn the tide of public ignorance.

    By denouncing socialism and entitlements while screaming 'don't touch my social security' and threatening violence and to settle political disputes with a Browning?
    Informed? Again, Social Security is an entitlement and many of the TPers who denounce it live off if it.

    Patriots? Screaming about how a lost democratic election is tyranny?


    The last I saw grassroots campaign that wasn't funded and organized by corporate lobbyists was the Ron Paul Rloveution and the Civil Rights movement before that

    I happen to like S&M clubs...

    Also, you might have noticed I maintained no contact with or relationship to the GOP or any of their groups

    No wai!

    :razz:

    The Young Republicans I know seem to be more interested in getting together and drinking, than they were in promoting the Republican Party.

    The Young Libertarians, though, they are fun. They hand out free monopoly money, and peacefully protest by getting stoned!

    A Browning?:cuckoo:

    I'm calling BS.:eusa_hand:

    Lets see proof.

    I've been to numerous Tea Parties. I have never seen any signs calling for an end to ssi or medicare for those who have already involuntarily paid for it.

    I'd be happy to opt out of the federally mandated ponzi schemes though. Is that permitted?

    Now that the government has collected medicare taxes for some forty years and it is near insolvency, they decide it is a perfect time to cut it to fund the next ponzi scheme?

    In case you've been on another planet, the Congress and White House has been using the Constitution for toilet paper. Winning an election doesn't mean they get to rule by decree.
