    Given the comments here over the past years if you think both parties are too liberal I’d say it’s the same as saying you are ultra conservative.

    “Give me a break! Both parties are too liberal and take many liberties with the laws they create. If we could live by the constitution, we’d all be better. Toles has his head up his a$$ on this one!”
    .
    That isn’t liberal. It is more criminal. And, the republicans are really excellent at it.

    You must be one of those sovereign citizens. Shouldn’t you be cleaning your AK-47 or something?

    According to the Constitution, the Constitution means what Congress says it means until and unless the Supreme Court says otherwise. If you don’t think that is the way it should work, then your quarrel is with the Constitution itself.


    But perhaps you merely think that the Congress and the Supreme Court should adopt a different interpretation of the Constitution than they have done. I can understand that. But, as Conservatives like to point out, this is not a (pure) democracy, and the people are not empowered to decide by simple majority vote what the Constitution means, what it allows or does not allow. I would say that the notion that the people in general should be the ones to decide what is and is not allowable under the Constitution is a distinctly Liberal notion.

    But I thought the Tea party was dead, That they were people to not be feared, need to be marginalized. I also thought the guy who spends the most wins.
    What is really going on here is that if the voters will do that to an incumbent who took a stand with the liberals, what are the voters going to do with the liberals he took a stand with?

    “What is really going on here is that if the voters will do that to an incumbent who took a stand with the liberals, what are the voters going to do with the liberals he took a stand with?”

    A very good question. We can only hope that the liberals he took a stand with have voters who are more educated and are better able to think for themselves than the voters in Richmond, VA.

    I agree with many of the tenets of the Tea Party, but not with their methods. You cannot fix government by shutting it down.

    a stand with have voters who are more educated and are better able to think for themselves than the voters "
    So like I said, what do you think will happen when the more intelligent voter who votes on the proper issues and not the one bought by the party line. The democrats will be very much in trouble not being able to pay off and give away the evil riches money for the low price of a vote or two.

    In the original version, 1838 printing Adam only destroys those around the good doctor. Then leaves for the North Pole.

    What they really want is the Confederation 1776 – 1789. That or the theocracies of the Puritans. They really don’t like the real Constitution anyway. Just their mythical one.

    Looks like the Tea Party Republicans aren’t dead yet. They still have more pull in the Republican party than the Progressives in the Democratic party.

    The scary part is that Cantor never sided with liberals. He felt that you could work with the president sometimes to get things done that had to be done, but he never compromised on “no taxes,” and single-handedly blocked immigration reform (dooming the Republican party to a much-deserved death by 2016). That rank and near-total obstructionism was still not enough, apparently for the tea party. Both candidates accused the other of being “liberal,” which in both cases was patently and obviously false. How do you choose between two lying, pandering sleazeballs? Apparently, you throw out the one who’s currently in power. Let’s hope the people of Virginia’s 7th vote in the Democratic candidate. Brat has truly insane and dangerous ideas that would destroy America’s economy, and doesn’t represent the interests of anyone rational.
