Only a completely ignorant person could spew like this. Here are some FACTS for you to chew on:
1) MANY of the Tea Party people were openly AGAINST Bush and his fascist, destructive policies. Unfortunately our voices were NOT HEARD until we started actually taking matters into our own hands by taking over local GOP elections. When that started happening, the GOP woke up and did EVERYTHING within their power to marginalize and purge the Ron Paul and moderate elements out of "their party". Kicking the Neo-Con elements out of the GOP and bringing it back under the control of the grassroots is an ongoing, long-term battle that will continue to be waged for the foreseeable future. If the GOP can´t or won´t change, they will only become increasingly irrelevant while the majority of Tea Party sympathizers will simply swing their votes and financial support to candidates from any other party, as they have no loyalty to a Neo-Con-controlled GOP.
2) Though the GOP/Fox News elements have co-opted SOME Tea Party groups, it would be a BIG mistake to assume that they speak for the majority of Tea Party people across the country. THEY DO NOT. That´s just the spin that the Spokesman Review and similarly worthless "news" organizations are trying to promote to non-thinking, reactionary people like you (who are so gullible to believe it).
3) The vast majority of Tea Partier´s are AGAINST the stupid, expensive wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. If Obama is so much better than Bush, why has he INCREASED troop levels in Afghanistan and Pakistan by 50,000? Why is he following in Bush’s footsteps and continuing to beat the drums of war while threatening to launch a new front in Iran? By doing so, he has PROVEN that he is just another Neo-Con controlled puppet in Democratic clothing who supports the same, failed Bush/Cheney "perpetual war doctrine", DESPITE his repeated campaign promises to the contrary! Why aren´t YOU jumping up and down and screaming to high heavens about THAT? Where is your shrill, righteous voice on this issue??
4) You are quite right that we do not agree with your socialistic ideas to solve problems. ObamaCare, Carbon Taxes (justified with now disproven junk science), CAFTA, NAFTA, and open border policies will destroy what´s left of our economy and are NOT the solutions that will solve this country´s problems. Further, we can´t afford those policies even if we wanted to!
Spokanecouger, why don´t you start educating yourself about who the "Tea Party" people really are? Are you afraid that you just might discover that the vast majority of them are actually very moderate, average, mainstream people who are simply fed up with the criminal alliance between huge, multinational corporations and our elected (and non-elected) federal and state government “representatives”? This unholy alliance has been raping America for decades and it’s only accelerating as evidenced by all of the obscene Bailouts (which Obama was 100% in favor of).
Instead of just whining, bitching and name-calling, what specifically are YOU doing to actually solve the spiraling problems? Your lack of knowledge and understanding about those you are ranting so strongly against proves your ignorance and makes you a useful tool of the corporate machine that is running our country into the ground. Until you start truly educating yourself, you will continue to be nothing more than a big part of the problem!
