Despicable SOB's do that. Obama is the Worst in History and Bush is right behind him. The 2002-2010 Congress was equally Despicable. The Tea Party is the only group pushing back against this government monster. The Democrats are using their brainwashed turds in their party to borrow more and more on the backs of our children. There's several repubs that are guilty of the same so they must be shown the door fast too.
The Tea Party is the exact same thing as the neo-cons before the crash. They are run by elites.
Elites cheat !

Ron Paul is the only one fighting to end this problem, not the FOX news owned Tea Party.

Senator Lugar is supported locally by elite media talking heads who also proclaim to be Tea Party. Lugars opponent is just like Lugar, also claiming to be Tea Party, only he is backed the other three or four talking heads. Its all a scam, they are all big government thieves, fraternity brothers and cheaters. All bootlickers to Bush's folly

What has the so called Tea Party accomplished......what have they done.....Marco Rubio and Scott Brown / Big Government

The Taxed Enough Already people helped elect 64 new Representatives in the House in 2010, and will elect enough new Senators to give the majority in the Senate to the Republicans in November. Dirty Harry is on his way out as Majority Leader. I had several E mails with their plans for the summer, and they look as strong as they were in 2010.

64 new votes, same policy

Give the majority to McCain / Graham and company ?

For Gods sake you guys supported Dan Burton two years ago after he spent eight years voting for every one of the Bush policies.

I think you'all got duped

Oh I get it. Bishop Romney is a "severe" conservative. We're still going with that?

Agreed. Moderates have allowed Marxist/Socialist to gain a foothold in the United States.
We need a return to strict Constitutional law, as per the founders.
I agree. That's why I've fallen in line and support Bishop Romney for president. He's severely conservative.

A new world order has been in the making for decades.
The only issue is if the wrong person is elected in November it will come sooner then latter.
Well, the first step to create the NEW WORLD ORDER is to call corporations people, people who aren't subject to the rules of other people. Then you elect a multinational corporation with tax shelters and residencies in countries all over the world, with loyalty to none, as president. Then you connect the continents with oil lines and super expressways. Then you replace currencies. The US Dollar, the Canadian Dollar, and the Peso will be replaced with the Amero. Then you eliminate the Middle Class. Connect the dots yourself.

What type of a person borrows more money than they can pay back, and attaches it to their grandchild ?
A nation parties like its 1984 and send the bill to a child....pathetic
Look at the media block on RON PAUL. Real conservatives don't have a chance in this corporate system. You can fill stadiums with voters until you are blue in the face, but if you don't control the Diebold voting machines, you don't win. Both major parties take turns controling the machines based on how much corporate money they raise. The policies never change. Last time, Obama raised more money. This time Bishop Romney will probably raise more money.

The teabaggers also saved the Senate for the Dems. Delaware, Nevada, and Colorado. And the teabagger was beaten by a WRITE-IN in Alaska. Striking as their wins were, they lost in over 60% of the house races they were in.

Now with 2 years of their failure and having their craziness exposed nationwide and many of the teabagger districts experiencing buyers remorse, I'd take 5-4 odd that the Dems take back the house.

The banksters seem, to think so:
"...according to an analysis by the Center for Public Integrity (CPI), nearly half of the Super PAC’s donations come from the financial industry:

Of the $43.2 million raised by the attack PAC,$20.5 million, or 48 percent, came from finance industry donors, according to an analysis of Federal Election Commission data by the Center for Public Integrity.

At least $13.5 million came from private equity firms ($7 million) and hedge funds ($6.5 million) while most of the rest came from investment banks and other asset managers. So-called “non-bank lenders” that run storefront cash-for-title and payday lending operations gave the super PAC $437,500, according to the analysis.

A ThinkProgress analysis previously found that Mitt Romney is Goldman Sach’s favorite GOP candidate. And it seems that the rest of the financial industry is in the same camp.

The financial industry’s love for Romney makes sense, since Romney is both a former financial executive himself, and wants to repeal the Dodd-Frank financial reform law. He has also been non-committal with regard to closing the carried interest tax loophole, a pernicious tax break for money managers that helps Romney himself save millions of dollars. CPI noted that “the average contribution [to the Super PAC] was a little more than $83,000.” http://thinkprogress.org/economy/2012/04/03/4...

It seems the Koch's were the ones "applauding" (and profiting) government tyranny and nutjob teabaggers such as Laughing Limbaughtomy and Le Dimbulb defend and support them.

Compared to President Obama, he certainly is.

Obama knows "Community Organizing".
