“We have LIBERTY.....the teaparty got together because of taxes and when they discovered rather LATE in the game that taxes were the lowest in decades.... then they started talking about the loss of liberty because we were a nation that should have healthcare for all ....... I don't find anything their leaders stand for as sensible....and in particular when they have some like Palin or Bachmann or Ted Cruz.....or Santarium . who brought a dead fetus home.”

“When the teaparty members brought guns to the town-halls and some town halls were purposely disrupted by teaparty members shouting to a point where democracy wasn't able to exist. They don't like democracy---they want a theocracy.
The teaparty is funded by the Koch brothers who don't like regulations (paying millions in penalities to Canada & the USA for pollution) and use the teaparty to support the fact they don't like paying taxes.

It is REPUBLICAN Business owners who have taken millions of jobs overseas. thereby putting MILLIONS of Americans out of work.

Republicans say they are for LESS government, yet THEY are using SOCIALIST type of benefits like medicare or the police, the public roads and bridges......Republicans say they are for LESS government, yet THEY have passed hundreds of laws to restricts women’s rights.”

“Businesses need workers who are grateful for steady employment and have no ambition to be more than they are. The reality of the world is that the 1% feel that most are born in to the working lives that they deserve which is servitude to their betters with infrequent exceptions.”

Very suspicious that he knew nothing about the problems in Arizona, especially since they are claiming veterans died while waiting to get in. No call to the senators office about this? No public pronouncement? I find that difficult to believe.”

“The do-nothing party has to lie about everything even the 8 years they helped to make a mess to cover up. . Four decades ago, supply side economics was a joke even by Reagan's right hand man who said it was a Trojan horse to bring down the top rates. The idea that cutting taxes on the very rich was the key to prosperity had been laughed out of the debate as 'trickle down economics. ' Now low taxes on the rich -- even the dead rich -- are national policy. ( Thank you republicans) Forty years ago, Richard Nixon was fighting mostly on territory defined by Democrats. He had a universal health proposal somewhat to the left of the Affordable Care Act. Nixon was even for a guaranteed annual income, and that was before Watergate --maybe he was the last good republican president.”

“That's not true at all..... Freddie & Fannie made some bad loans but they were not responsible for the crisis even tho the right wing continues to lie about it ..... READ IT ON FORBES - quote -" More than 84 percent of the sub-prime mortgages in 2006 were issued by private lending. These private firms made nearly 83 percent of the subprime loans to low- and moderate-income borrowers that year. Out of the top 25 subprime lenders in 2006, only one was subject to the usual mortgage laws and regulations. The nonbank underwriters made more than 12 million subprime mortgages with a value of nearly $2 trillion. The lenders who made these were exempt from federal regulations."”

“the financial mess was a result of the democrat policy of forcing banks to make loans to unqualified buyers and the democrats laughing at Bush when Bush told the congress 17 times the housing bubble would burst- there wouldn't had been a 911 or any Bin Laden to get if Clinton would had taken OBL in 1996 when the Sudanese offered him to Clinton -- Do you even know what Lily Ledbetter does , all it does is extend the time a woman has to file a suit for what she considers wage discrimination and you act like it's some earth shattering legislation. -The Iraq war was coming to an end as agreed by Bush all Obama did was pull out 5 weeks early and now because Obama couldn't work a deal to leave some forces there Iraq is now back in the hands of Al-Qaeda and Iran uses Iraqi air space”
