    Seems like a bigger stench coming off the Tea Party!

    Definition of the tea party movement from Wikipedia: “The Tea Party movement is an American political movement that advocates strict adherence to the United States Constitution, reducing U.S. government spending and taxes, and reduction of the U.S. national debt and federal budget deficit.” Which of these principles are you intending to ridicule, Mr. Anderson?

    What it says and what they do are not always the same. They tend to believe that all government is bad – which is not what the founding fathers believed. After all, they were the ones who created the US Postal service and advocated for public education.

    Well, maybe you should read what those gentlemen said. Or are you just one of those that imbibe the intoxicating drink of hate from either side and let it take your reasoning power from you?

    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. – John Adams

    How strangely will the Tools of the Tyrant pervert the Plain Meaning of Words. – Samuel Adams

    It’s not tyranny we desire; it’s a just, limited, federal government. – Alexander Hamilton

    In free governments, the rulers are the servants, and the people their superiors and sovereigns… – Benjamin Franklin

    The Constitution is not an instrument for the gov’t to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the government-lest it come to dominate our lives and interests. – Patrick Henry

    A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take everything you have. – Thomas Jefferson

    That government is best which governs least. – Thomas Paine

    Do you see anything is any of these statements that suggest the founders wanted huge all controlling government?

    What, you don’t want socialization? What kind of hermit are you? Are you sure that’s the word you want? I would have thought that, at a Tea Party there would be plenty of socializing.

    Oh please. The Tea Party folks can’t read; what good is the Constitution to them?

    Further, you have fallen for the all out political attack/hate campaign typical of the tactics used by ……. liberal democrats. You can see it in almost every comment from those that are liberals and the far right posters as well.

    When one can not argue facts then one must discredit the opponent. Attack their character, no need to have truth involved. Lie if you want as long as you paint that sucker with as vile a record as you can imagine.

    NO?

    Well then, why would the super pac for Obama come out with all the ads accusing Romney of killing a man’s wife, not caring that she died and tell you that he was a heartless selfish SOB that would do that to every american if elected?

    When in reality, Romney – while being a successful business man and yes very rich – is a generous individual that cares for others and helps those in need when it is brought to his attention.

    But go ahead and tell the lie and believe the lie.

    Now there’s a bright comment. “Libtards”? Oh, ho-ho. How come you Tea Party types don’t know English? I thought you were English only advocates, but it’s hard to advocate a language you’re not proficient in. Should we stick with baby-talk with you guys? Do you need an explanation of “proficient”?

    @Bruce4671

    The gentleman you are ranting over posted a non blaming comment on the disparity between posted goals and actions taken.
    .
    It sure set off in you the very action you are losing spittle on the keyboard over.
    .
    When too much excitement happens in the brain it comes out somewhat incoherent.
    .
    If you really have something pertinent to say could you try again with some context that will make it understandable.

    Turning the Founding Fathers into sound bites is cheap & mis-leading. They were far from perfect, but well aware of it. They didn’t want to be put on a pedestal.

    The Founders wanted a nation that could think for themselves. They certainly wouldn’t care for a group that is funded by billionaires.

    @Bruce4671

    Yeah, right. And the hoopla over “You didn’t build that”, was just so fair & accurate compared to the “47%” remarks.

    Romney generously supports his church. Well, given his income, not even that generously. The Mormons expect their members to give 10% of their income to the Church. From 1990 – 2009, the Romney’s averaged 13.45% in charitable contributions. Romney increased his giving when he decided to run for President. Real generous guy, that Romney.

    I think Anderson is pointing out that the Tea Party has produced a lot of noise & stink, but little in the way of governing. Politics is by it’s definition about achieving the possible over the perfect. Ted Cruz & his compatriots didn’t go to DC to govern.

    Today’s Tea Party is nothing like the original Tea Party and Ms Ima lives in a different planet than the rest of civilization!

    Remember wikipedia is NOT a factual compilation of information. It depends on who submits what and who cares enough to correct the biases of what biased writers submit.
