Is Ron Paul a member of the Tea Party? I can't find any solid evidence to verify that he is.
And Doug, just so you know, these are not "compassionate" liberals at all. They only play at it when it helps their argument. Otherwise, they are nasty and mean spirited. Just go back and explore some of their posts from the past few years. Like the guy who wrote "fuck you" above. He's a reeeaaal nice fella to know, I bet Laugh


Ten months in between posts and this is the best you can do? Go back and read what Doug's been posting and take notes.

Exerpts from a well written letter to editor of one of my local papers, in a SouthEast, very RED state...
In reply to:
...at the end of WWll, facing a huge war National Debt, larger proportionately then today’s debt, Washington increased spending to rebuild Europe, culminating in the 1948 Marshall Plan, then funded the GI Bills that gave free education to almost 8 million vets, along with a years’ unemployment payments and heavily subsidized home loans, raised the minimum wage to 250% of the original amount, funded the Eisenhower Interstate Highway infrastructure program, all while maintaining a maximum tax rate of 91% on the richer folks . (Eisenhower refused to lower taxes as long as there was a budget deficit. A true Republican Conservative)

By the mid 1950’s it was those millions of taxpayer educated engineers, managers, scientists , accountants and technicians who were the driving force behind America’s growth for decades to come.

All in all, the history of that post war period seems a pretty good argument to reject current Tea Party Republican cost cutting anti government views ... Unfortunately hard facts do to get in the way of ideological positions...

The party of hate and death.

In reply to:

A few weeks ago I profiled Nezar Hamze, a Muslim activist and Republican in south Florida whose quest to join a local GOP committee prompted accusations that he is un-American and that Islam is incompatible with the Constitution.

Last night, the Broward Republican Executive Committee met to consider Hamze's application to become a voting member, a meeting that ended with him being called a "terrorist' by hecklers and an unprecedented 158-11 vote to deny him membership.

The usually perfunctory approval process for BREC membership was changed at the meeting in order to publicly vet Hamze and to then vote on his application using a secret ballot. He was the only one of 11 candidates rejected.

Rick Perry wants to end the direct election of Senators. [In reply to]

For Serious.

In reply to:
Texas Governor Rick Perry has brought to the race for the Republican presidential nomination a radical antidemocracy stance borrowed from the far-right fringe that once expressed itself at John Birch Society meetings but has now entered the mainstream of the Grand Old Party.
Perry’s particular extremism seeks to limit the role of voters at the national level of American politics: he would end the direct election of senators. But his candidacy highlights a broader agenda of Republican governors, who have been moving in recent months to diminish state and local democracy by undermining the authority of local elected officials, who tend to be the ones most accountable to the people. Those governors are instead shifting power to statewide executives, who are more accountable to the billionaire campaign donors and business interests that were freed by the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision to buy the election results that most favor their interests.

It would've probably hurt him less if he'd actually just shot himself in the foot.
