    Punsters and Pollsters may be seeing far less than an 80 seat change in the House, going Republican, three weeks out. In the Alaska Senate race, an Independent may be swayed to go against any Republican Tea Party Caucus, in the Senate Minority.

    GOP nominee Lewis is tied for the Senate with the Republican incumbent: Who all Republicans nation-wide have to oppose!

    Election 2010: Alaska Senate - Rasmussen Reports

    Twenty months ago, the Republican Party was dead. That may have been premature. In some parts of the world--where Russia is visible--it is mainly in its death throes.

    On the one hand you say that the GOP & write-in candidates are tied for the lead...then further down you say the GOP in AK is in its "death throes".

    Not a math major, huh??? hint: the dem is in 3rd place in a 3-horse race. If any party is in its "death throes" guess again which one it is.....geez.

    Alaska is supposed to be a source of energy. So far the Tea Party has managed to deplete even that.

    "Crazy Extremes," and "Crazy Juice," and "I am not a witch," are not national governing agenda.

    The Republican mantra for change is to reduce taxes for the rich, reduce spending on the poor and middle incomes, and blow up some new Third World nation!

    The Tea Party mantra for change is to tax nobody, abolish Social Security, Bring Back Segregation, void all Constitutional Amendments after 10, and so abolish most federal departments.

    Lincoln knew about health care in his time. A battlefield death was more reasonably regarded a mercy killing. The whole Union Army was a "Death Panel."

    The Tea Party wants the 17th century back again, and they don't like the Republican Agenda. The Crazy People are running almost even against the Republican incumbent in Alaska. The Democrat is running against them both.

    1/3 crazy people, 1/3 Republican Incumbent supporters, and 1/3 Democrat supportrs, is not a sign of life in an overwhelmingly Republican precinct.

    Please provide a link documenting the Tea Party platform that you mis-described. Otherwise you're simply delusional.

    Anyone is especially directed to item 5 in the delusional fictions from the "Tea Party" agenda from the U.S.A.(?)!

    The Tea Party agenda doesn't want health care, doesn't want the federal departments, does want an income source for federal programs, doesn't want federal anti-recession, deficit pump-priming, and doesn't the Supreme Court involved.

    The federal legislature is required to pass on the Constitutionality of all legislation. Judicial Review is not in the agenda.

    The Contract from America

    See for example, Sections 3101 and 3111 of the Internal Revenue Code impose FICA taxes on wages. That is the funding source for Social Security. The Tea Party agenda wants the Internal Revenue Code abolished, hence no funding for Social Security, which is not entirely a laissez-faire economy centerpiece.

    Anyone might wonder if the United States is better off with something at least as complex as all the Jewish codes, verses, pithy sayings, and songs, and stories. The Heb from Nazareth, of the New Testament, tried to reduce the whole thing to just two Commandments. Nobody, anywhere, follows along with that crazy crap, anywhere on the planet!

    (Many items clearly are in the agenda!)

    This is item-5. What is your problem with financial review of federal expenses. Many years ago they had the "Grace Commission" do a top-down review and they save $billions, which is crucial now since we are borrowing from China.

    Create a Blue Ribbon taskforce that engages in a complete audit of federal agencies and programs, assessing their Constitutionality, and identifying duplication, waste, ineffectiveness, and agencies and programs better left for the states or local authorities, or ripe for wholesale reform or elimination due to our efforts to restore limited government consistent with the US Constitution’s meaning. (63.37%)

    Either way I don't see the stupid lies that you posted previously and attributed to the Tea Party.

    The Mormons, even, seem to know this. Anything as complex as The Bible: Needs to be replaced with something as complext as The Bible!

    The Grace Commission was the offspring of the other Great Crazy, Greatest Liar of All-Time: Ronald Reagan. He is the creator of the "ReaGan Recession," sometimes dubbed the "Ray-Gun" Recession, after Star Wars. That was going to balance the federal budget, for four years, twice!

    In that plan The Rich corporations were going to be paid to stave off the invasion from Mars.

    Like much of the Tea Party agenda, the concept of Judicial Review, in the Courts, is completely circumvented. Some Wealthy Commision of billionaires instead: Decides on the Constitutionality of everything that has ever been done since the adoption of the U. S. Constitution. That is where the federal money goes. It goes to fund everything still being funded, since the original adoption of the U. S. Constitution.

    Effectively, When Tea Party Delaware Christine couldn't think of anything in the Supreme Court decisions that she opposed: She actually called attention to just how insane the Tea Party movement should really be regarded.
