Thread Name: BS: The Tea Party- New & Improved Thread...
Subject: RE: BS: The Tea Party- New & Improved Thread...
The unifying raison de'etre is Old Time Religion, not taxes, not ideology but a return to a mythical "Christianized" America, using the false claims about the Founding Fathers who were mostly Deists. The schizophrenic nod to atheist Ayn Rand is ignored by the Tea Party who may like the elitist role played by the super-wealthy but have not come to terms with Rand's view of their religion. Are Paul Ryan, Ron Paul, Rand Paul, Scott Walker, Karl Rove and Grover Norquist atheists and if so, would they admit it? (I don't think so!)

Perry is the principal figurehead for this movement followed by Bachmann and this is the reason that the Mormon Romney is the enemy although now as Perry tanks for his poor performance at the Republican debates in Florida, the GOP has nowhere to turn except to the "infidel" Romney. Will Tea Partiers stay home on election day? Will that matter?

Unless a "dark horse" enters the race, Romney is it. Can Obama nail him?

Here's the elephant in the room, elections are controlled throughout the country by Republican Governors almost ensuring election frauds in many states and these will be contested, despite the Supreme Court's proclamation that a "Bush v. Gore" will not be revisited. You know how SCOTUS will vote. Pennsylvania has already planned to throw it's delegates to Republicans, a model for elections in other states. Doesn't sound too democratic although they say it's legal.
