I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

    I have often wondered why the “the zygote is a person!” crowd has never pushed for attempted murder charges when a woman drinks/smokes/eats badly when pregnant…

  2. This is a nice little video, yet it reveals the core problem with those who want to hand over government back to the Republican Party. Many of those evangelicals who support the Republicans, are maniacally, anti-civil libertarian. Back when the Bush regime was using warrantless wiretaps and rendering Americans to other countries where they were tortured and murdered, NONE of the evangelical Christians in the Republican Party would support any form of resolution that condemned such unconstitutional abuses of power by Bush.

    It made me realize that all those years of helping to get, “people of faith” into politics through my activism with groups like the Christian Coalition, had actually put a bunch of power hungry control freaks into office, who think torture is OK, as long as it isn’t happening to them.

    The Democrats have some serious problems too, but they don’t support torturing people, like the Republicans do. Right now, the only Party left that is defending any level of civil liberties, is our Democratic party.

    Yes, we still have a Libertarian Party, and a Constitution Party, but neither runs more than a few candidates; none of which make much of an impact, outside a few races. From what I have seen, the LPVA is dwindling in Virginia, and the Constitution Party is just a tool used to enrich a few of their senior members. Neither of these “third parties” remains viable. I wish this were not the case.

    If you are a libertarian, your best bet is to join the Democrats (grit your teeth if necessary) and use that Party to keep fighting to keep the reins of government out of the hands of the, multinational corporate owned and operated Republican Party.

    In Henrico, the Democratic Committee meets at the JCC on Monument Ave. on the second Monday of each month (starting again in January). Everyone is welcome and membership is not required.

    This cartoon is NOT correct. I’m and MOST tea partiers want to END THE WAR. We don’t believe in staying in combat forever, especially after 10 years. The entire WWII was fought in 6 yrs. The problem here is that we EMBECILE top Pentagon “leaders”, if you want to call them that. Youtubes by Kay Griggs, a LtCol’s wife who was chief of staff to Gen Gray, says that many of the top Generals are gay satanists and they push the homo agenda on the young officers, so that the WEAK rise to the top. WE ARE SEEING IT IN ACTION.

    The tea party is NOT about social agendas like gay marriage; we are concentrated on the economic turmoil wrought by the elite deliberately. Of course there are groups as part of the movement, but THAT is not the common goal, which is to replace a BOUGHT-OFF congress with regular people who will vote for what’s right. WE DON’T HAVE TIME FOR GAY. ABORTION, AND ALL THE OTHER CRAP, although most have their own views.

  4. Penny says:

    WE ARE “NOT” REPUBLICAN. Just because we took over some of their seats doesn’t equal Republican. Just as half of those so-called “republicans” who are in congress are actually RINOS.

  5. Penny says:

    We are DISSATISFIED with the status-quo, don’t intend to beome a “political party” but will stay a “movement”, and we’ll probably infiltrate the Dim party next.
