    In an email from an Ohio Tea Party group, they make it clear that their main goal is hurt unions in an effort to defeat Obama and Democrats. I thought the TP was all about freedom and stuff. I guess they mean freedom to rig elections.

    One doesn't need to worry with facts, when painting the corner of logical fallacy.

    I remember when they were spitting on elected officials while elected Republicans were putting up signs and egging them on.

    The one where a SC justice admitted Bush's case was frivolous? Yeah, that's a good one. 11 years too late unfortunately.

    Well it sounds like a hell of a good plan to me...THE UNIONS bought and OWN the Obama.

    I think the people are finally getting this through their heads, He IS NOT a President FOR ALL the people, only the ones who paid for and support him..

    Being a patriot myself, I believe in the freedom to work without paying a fee for the privilege. I also do not like the idea of paying dues so it can go to a candidate I do not support. I would vote to support a Right to Work state.

    i believe the tea party wants to take the govt back (whatever that means), and is willing to crush public sector unions to do it.

    supporting unions is not a yardstick of one's patriotism, imo.

    i think the OP is intellectually dishonest and i deny it.

    1 in 10 workers belong to a union. The top 1% wealthiest Americans have much, much more power than unions.
