Andrew C. and Kent (and probably Jaz) will be glad to learn that their Tea Baggers protest club now has a manifesto!!
My personal favorite is #4-- Defeat of the Obama 2010 budget, with a new budget set at 2008 levels plus inflation. We've already spent too much money that we don't have.
It's interesting that Republicans didn't decide to start Tea Bagging until a Democrat took control of government. Where were the Tea Baggers when George Bush and the Republicans ran up $1.4 trillion of debt? Where were they when George Bush was spending money we didn't have?
The answer is simple. Tea Baggers aren't against spending. They aren't even against big government. There is no proof that Republicans are opposed to large government spending programs whatsoever. What they are opposed to is Democrats. They are obviously an extreme minority in this country. People who supported George Bush and his 8 years of incompetent rule can't be serious when they form fringe groups that supposedly support nothing on the agenda of their 8 year rule of this country.
I'm sorry to hear your circle jerks and reach around parties weren't working. That reminds me. Let me know when y'all do that Revolution thing again. I really want to be part of it this time. Just like in 1994, I think the Revolution is ripe. That whole Permanent Majority thing really worked out so well. I'm busy usually throughout the week but Thursdays at 4pm work out great for me; or Saturday about 2ish are fine too. Seriously, let me know!
