Hard to take the Teas seriously with Palin and Bachman as their spokespersons.
Curious as to what the Teas think of Pres. GW Bush, was he a RINO?
Do you deny that Evangelicals are the force within the Teas? I rest my case!

Well Swamp, you just proved my point. The Teas are about Social issues while Spending/Budgets is just a mere smoke screen as evident by who they have supported in the past! Evident in not only who they have supported but also in their proposed Legislation. The Teas on the Hill have tried to pass more anti-Abortion bills than curtail out of control spending. I haven't a problem with Christians but, I do support Separation of Church from State. The Teas do not pass muster in regards to being Deficit/Debt hawks.
Real candidates? We have them but the Repubs and Dems are working hard to keep them off of ballots and debates with their media in tow! Right now, it is a two Party monopoly. However, that will change as more voters become disenfranchised with the Dems and Repubs.
Also, great job of dodging the GW Bush question. For your edification, the term RINO has been around long before the Teas. How did the Teas vote yesterday on raising taxes and raising spending? Warning; this is a trap question. I haven't heard much opposition from them! The only self-proclaimed Libertarian, Rep Justin Amash(R) of Michigan voted against them.
If you want real reform, then you have to elect the real reformers and that is not the Teas! The Teas are more interested in their Social issues, proof is in the performance. And, that performance has had a negative effect hurting the Repub Party nationally. I am thankful too that we have educated people speaking for our Party like Carla Howell, Gary Johnson & Justin Amash instead of Palin and Bachmann.

Santorum and Gingrich were the best package? Laughable! One wants to ban all birth control and the other had no problem raiding Social Security in the 1990's to balance the budget!
Had Jefferson not been serving in France as our Ambassador during the writing of The Constitution, Separation of Church FROM State would have been in it. Remember, Jefferson was not a Christian, he was a Deist. In fact, he admonished the writers for leaving it out! And, when Pres. Eisenhower adder "In God We Trust" to our currency in 1955, that was a direct attack at what this country was founded on, Freedom Of Religion". That why the earlier settlers migrated here.
Oh, and if it wasn't for Dr Ron Paul, the Teas wouldn't know what to say and we all know the Teas can't take the Liberty conversation beyond talking points. It is Dr Paul that has been talking about government too big, out of control spending, failed Monetary and Foreign policies and loss of Liberties for over 25 years!.
Where were the Teas when Bush was running up a 10 TRILLION plus Debt? Nowhere! They didn't get all huffy and puffy until a black man was elected President!
You didn't make a comment on Pres Bush so how can you stand on your comment? You dodge the question because under your definition, Bush would be a RINO and you didn't want to admit it.

Between 1924 and 1954, the Pledge of Allegiance was worded:
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands; one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."In 1954, during the McCarthy era and communism scare, Congress passed a bill, which was signed into law, to add the words "under God." The current Pledge reads:
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands; one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
Never trust a dog to watch your food!
You may not be aware of the fact that Social Security is our nation's largest Debt Holder thanks to Newt and Clinton. You may be OK with that but, as far as I am concerned, he stole the people's money and all politicians that approved the raid of SS to balance the budget should be serving hard time in jail! The Teas may think Newt an angel, I think he is a criminal!
I don't need any Historians to tell me what Jefferson believed. I have read Jefferson's Bible. He refers to Jesus as the Rabbi and he doesn't refer to any god is his Bible nor did Jefferson think Jesus was a son of any god.
Ron Paul realized the Repub Party is done, fini. He has started a political movement that has capture the imagination of millions. People disenfranchised by both parties that would never identify with the Repubs or Dems. Libertarians appeal is with the college students of all colors and the 30 something year olds of all colors who are Fiscally Conservative and Socially tolerant. Beliefs the Teas do not offer nor the Dems or Repubs. All the Teas are doing is fracturing the current GOP and handing over Federal elections to the Dems. The Libertarians offer the future!
