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.
So what are you doing about it then, besides starting threads on the OM?

Didn't want to start a new thread, so chose to bump this one so dramallama can post in this thread under two different names...

Anyone, an interesting question to ponder is whether or not the Tea Party will die off when Obama is no longer president.

Quote:
According to Parker and Barreto, 91 percent of Tea Party supporters hold negative opinions of Obama. (This beats the 82 percent who hold negative views of illegal immigrants, and, even more tellingly, the 85 percent who report a preference for limited government.) Sixty-seven percent of Tea Party supporters believe that Obama is a socialist, and 71 percent think he will destroy the country. Destroy the country! In contravention of basic, established facts, solid majorities do not believe that he is a Christian (71 percent) or that he was born in the United States (59 percent). Parker and Barreto take pains to distinguish these views from those of non-Tea Party conservatives, and to ensure—by means of regression analysis—that Tea Party affinity, and not some other factor like support for the Republican Party, accounts for the figures.
