I say this feeling as you, this President has done everything he can to push a destructive agenda and reshape what it means to be American. I do believe his crimes are egregious and plentiful and he should be impeached. While I appreciate the passion your post contains, a duly elected President should be removed from office legally and with cause or we’re no better than those we fight.
Most liberals who comment seem willfully ignorant of what true conservationism is. The fact is most conservatives are thoughtful, analytical people who understand cause & effect, and see a world beyond the pettiness of feel-good, tribal politics. Most conservatives I know look at the Republican party as “the better of two evils” and hope for better representation. Most that I know are not racists or homophobes, but believe a stronger America is a conservative one. You sir, are reinforcing the liberal mis-characterization of the Conservative movement. Please stop it.

Real life example. Our company shut down all our California offices and moved the HQ from south SF bay area to Wisconsin. Our C-levels were all eager to move. Taxes, regulations, employee salary demands, commute and quality of life all factored into this decision, along with rent. Office space was so much cheaper. As people quit in California, we rehire in Wisconsin. It’s a no-brainer.

The sad part is the cuts aren’t in the right places because no congressmen would dare cut a useless pet project that might mean less jobs. Instead they cut benefits for survivors and veterans. I agree military cuts should happen. I also agree that once again big government gets in the way. Spending authority needs to be given to those who actually know what the military needs – the military commanders.

That’s certainly relevant. But what this tells me that Democrat interests simply have more politicians in their pockets. Although I think all politicians should be forthcoming on where their real interests lie. I think that would be interesting is how little effect this would have on voting. Those who vote for Democrats would expect more donors from environmental and union lobbyists and Republicans from pro-business, gun and religious groups. And I think their constituents would prefer it that way too.
While I love the idea and the comments. I find it ironic that the comic features what’s presumably a Republican congressman when it’s Democrats who would be most affected by this. They receive far more contributions from groups/PACs and corporations than Republicans. Source: https://www.opensecrets.org/overview/topcontribs.php

Sign-ups also mean “those who put their info in the website.” Not necessarily those who clicked buy or worse, paid. Hard to pay when the back-end is still missing that key element. But don’t worry about the poor insurance companies, it’s written into the law the tax payers will bail them out no matter the cause, albeit bad implementation, bad management or malfeasance.

Please cite your sources. You use the absolutes when I have yet to see concrete examples of any that you spout..“…wanting government to enforce their religious, moral,…” I’ve attended meetings where the leader said welcome, then explained their strictly about fiscal responsibility and returning the U.S. to the principles of the Constitution. Any social ideology needed to be left at the door.
“… who literally want the poor to starve to death…” First, learn what the word literally means. Unless you meant literally in which case I think you’d find that person would be out of a job next election. Most Tea Partiers I know see a need for public safety nets. We just disagree with how they’re run, ever expanding, and hugely bureaucratic and expensive. Did you know they advertise food stamps now with the premise “If you’re not on food stamps, you’re a fool.” Is this right?
“it’s my opinion that people embrace the TP politics out of mixed combinations of ignorance, bigotry, hatred, and anger.” And you’re certainly entitled to your opinion, but as one who is none of those yet identify with the Tea Party, and who know many who identify with the tea party and are none of those, I ask for your personal experiences with Tea Partiers that support this. Perhaps it’s local, but I’ve attended meetings and rallies in Florida and Wisconsin, both hot beds of political activity, and I experienced none of those things. I would walk away if I did.
