YouTube - Thom Hartmann: Must see! The TRUE story of the Tea Party
When Democrats march in the street and protest, it's called Democracy and Freedom of Speech. When anybody else does it, it's called just about anything else you can think of to put a bad light on it.
Actually, history has shown, when Democrats protest, there is violence.
It is one of those conundrums. The party of peace most quickly resorts to violence when they do not get what they want.
Who DOESN'T know this story? What he fails to mention in the video though is that the modern day tea party is about heavy taxation on the the middle class and government spending us into oblivion as well as the Federal reserve destroying our currency and therefore, our life savings! Thus the name T.E.A. Party stands for "Taxed Enough Already". I'll bet a lot of you don't know that.
Corporate Tax cuts are not the main focus. Individual taxation is.
Besides, when Japan cuts it's Corporate Tax Rate this year, the US will have the highest Corporate Tax rate of any industrialized nation. You think that has any effect on business and trade?
Then it was over a corporation given a monopoly by the government, today, we've eliminated the middle man,
unless of course, we decide to toss Chevys overboard.
If we fall into the category of an unindustrial nation, the numbers will look better.
I agree..I mean look at WI.
No, wait. Nevermind.
"No, wait...nevermind" is the Democrat Party platform. They live and breath it.
Oh joy. Thom Hartmann. he's about as credible as Alex Jones.
I've listened to his radio show on multiple occasions. Everything's Reagan's fault, the republican's fault, capitalism's fault. I mean it's like "Six degrees of Ronald Reagan" to everything bad in the universe with this whacko.
So his "truth" leaves a lot to be desired.
Well, at least one leader within the Tea Party movement showed her true colors:

Of course, painting with a broad brush isn't fair and to characterize a movement by the behavior of one person is rather absurd. Yet, one expects leaders to a least be circumspect, and political leaders to argue policy and not engage in the politics of hate and fear (unless of course that's all they've got).
If the TP is all about taxes, why haven't we seen a comprehensive plan of tax reform? Where is the blueprint for a real, responsible and practical tax code?
