Why does the TEA PARTY scare the hell out of the dems and progressives? They keep telling us that our numbers are dwindling, Our Congressmen have no power, we have little support among the working people of the nation yet we have the power to hold the entire nation hostage. You can hear the terror in their voice when they offer to "take us out" or "send us to hell" and on the other hand tell us we are nothing. I have found out that most of the TEA PARTY members I know (myself included) are union members.(of course if you live in Ca. and work in a trade you had to join the union), I see members that are of minority races( the people we are supposed to hate) and are happy to be members. On another thread I had a person tell me the dems and progressives don't run on "Family Values". Do they really run on taking NO personal responsibility for their own welfare? Do they really think it is the responsibility of hard working people, that make something of themselves, to take care of them? Why do people that drop out of schools, do drugs, have no desire to work to support their family's expect others to support them. I know there are a lot of unemployed people that would like to be working right now and that's not who I'm talking about, I'm talking about those that will not work even if jobs are available. Those who think they can't earn as much as a CEO so why not just let those CEO's support them. Progressives and a lot of dems seem to think we all owe them a living, and now day's that living seems to include large flat screen T.V's, X-boxes, air conditioning and internet. I guess nothing is too good for today's welfare class. No wonder the TEA PARTY terrify them. Personal Responsibility, I guess that's just too much to ask.
