    It wasn't so well represented by ignorant people. I love freedom, don't really trust the govt. but every time I hear something from someone who represents the tea party I'm totally put off.

    Well, I'm not sure how you define ignorant. They are not all ignorant. But, IMNSHO, they are all dangerous. Rand Paul, case in point....from my state of KY. He is about as transparent as Bill Frist was. They are both MDs who ran for office in order to preserve their health care fortunes. Doesn't matter who has to die in the process.

    They don't understand the figures that get thrown around in Washington any more than the ones who are in Washington now understand them. Instead of taking a really thoughtful approach to the budget, they just want to lop off numbers regardless who gets hurt in the process.

    I can concede that they have some valid points. But all the tea partiers are doing is creating yet another power struggle. They have not helped, and indeed, if one were to really analyze the process since their inception, I feel fairly certain it could be shown that they have hurt this country. (That's my opinion.)

    Before the TEA party there was no talk of restraining spending. Now there is.

    To put the national deficit in terms of a household budget, assume a family has an annual income of $50K. They decide that to live the life they desire, they will need to burrow another $41K every year forever.

    That is the current fiscal policy of the USA.

    The TEA Party adherants think this is a tad insane. I am a TEA Party adherant. Tell me why spending this much is not insane.

    Why is it "you don't really trust govt."

    You think it might be BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN CONTROLLED BY REPUBS AND DEMS?

    Instead of being a mouth-breathing listener of Maher or Limbaugh, maybe you should try thinking for yourself.

    I would like them if they were honest...

    If you want to reduce debt you have to be willing to give up programs that help you, not just programs that help others. Military, Social Secuity, Medicare, veterans Benefits all should be up for cuts

    You can't reduce $14 trillion in debt without raising taxes

    I am EXTRMELY sympathetic to their complaints.

    And terrified by their goofy solutions.

    I think that about the Democrats.







    Oh, and the Republicans.
