If you dont like getting parking tickets in the mail from video ticketing, if you dont like watching your taxes increase, if you dont like the IRS, if you dont like the Fed, if you dont like expansive government power and regulation, if you dont like foreign wars, if you dont like out-of-touch politicians telling you to tighten your belt while they shave their share off the top of your tax dollars, if you dont like having to get your crotch grabbed to get on a plane, if you dont like increasing police powers, if you dont like your tax dollars being wasted, if you dont like an impersonal bureaucracy telling you what to do, if you dont want the government telling you what to eat, if you dont want the government forcing you to spend money on things you dont want...you're probably alot more similar to the people in the TEA party than you realize.
And if those are your interests as well, you'd be better off with them than you would either the R's or the D's.
The R's and D's are faces of the same interational conglomerate military machine. Its time to cut them loose and to rebuild our country ourselves.
