    Hey, I'm all for protest and free speech... but actively trying to destroy the American economy out of spite? Personally I think that's going a bit too far, but apparently some extremist right-wing types don't.

    Don't take my word for it though, judge for yourself:

    Call For A Strike of American Small Businesses Against The Movement for Global Socialism - Tea Party Nation

    Specifically (after a long Anti-Obama "Socialist" screed):

    "I, an American small business owner, part of the class that produces the vast majority of real, wealth producing jobs in this country, hereby resolve that I will not hire a single person until this war against business and my country is stopped.

    I hereby declare that my job creation potential is now ceased."

    The link is to the Tea Party's home page.

    Judge for yourself.

    Honestly, though, do you really think it's a sound political strategy to make a public pact on you website not to hire Americans in a time of high unemployment?

    Not to mention what it does to the country?

    I'm beginning to think that these people may not have the best interests of America at heart.

    Ive never gone to their website or any of their rallies. If they have a credible candidate thats all I care about. There are tons of websites out there that have stupid shit on them and I dont pay any attention to any of them.

    It's not so much destroy the economy as it is prevent recovery for political gain; as in Obama will get credit for the recovery and be reelected.

    Sounds like you are pissing down your own leg. Just saying. Funny, when We take action, it is at our own expense, not yours, yet when you protest, you are costing the Cities untold Millions. How does that compare? It says allot for your concern for Free Will and Private Property too. Who are you to tell Another what to do with his resources? What makes you so special? Where can we find you, after your instruction leads to Mass Losses?

    So, they're trying to prevent a recovery to score political points... Not destroy the entire economy permanently, just ruin it until they can get back in charge?

    I'm pretty sure that the average American won't like that either...
