    2 Reject Cap & Trade

    3 Demand a Balanced Budget

    4 Enact Fundamental Tax Reform

    5 Restore Fiscal Responsibility & Constitutionally Limited Government in Washington

    6 End Runaway Government Spending

    7 Defund, Repeal & Replace Government-run Health Care

    8 Pass an 'All of the Above' Energy Policy

    9 Stop the Pork

    10 Stop the Tax Hikes

    Seems pretty reasonable to me also, in the main. Saw this yesterday, thought you might enjoy it:

    While I don't agree entirely with all that was written in that contract, I appreciate the fact that they are finally proposing solutions, rather than opposing solutions.

    [Emphasis added] That's rather disingenuous, or plain silly, wording. If the opposition viewed them as 'solutions', there would be no reason to oppose them.

    How about "attempts at solutions"?

    Personally I think you've not been listening to what is being said at the rallies. Not your fault, some have been small and very much led by a few, those that have been really grassroots and larger, failed to get fair coverage-until the past 2 weeks. Now the message is starting in the legacy media, but I'm really unsure if it's necessary any longer.

    K. That's reasonable.

    Since people keep asking what the hell the TEA Parties want, I figure this should clear that question once and for all.

    Like it? Sign the contract.

    Tea Party sounds like a simple branch of Conservatism, then.

    Since you credited NO ONE in your original post, are we to assume YOU are now speaking for all of the Tea Baggers?
