Subject: RE: BS: The Tea Party- New & Improved Thread...
Tea Party is not new. It is not a third party. They are warmed over Republican fringe.

The Democratic Party is the only refuge for sensible people. But keep in mind how varied their base is. It ranges from fiscal conservatives like me who see the Republicans as radical and dangerous. To "minorities", to GBT, to actual socialists. The democratic base is impossible to please. The Republican base is easy to scare.

I am a tolerant person. I am against shooting people where it can be avoided. I am not against the Democrats.

The Tea Party/Republicans lie to me about economics, bully people and try to scare old people. Should they be shot for that? No, they should be warned to stop it before the guns come out.

Take Glen Beck, one month condemning the US health care system, the next praising it in opposition to Obama.
