    "It`s a lie."

    That`s a pretty serious accusation to make. Were you there? Do you have video footage? Eyewitness statements that contradict these claims?

    Basically, I`m asking you to explain on what evidence you are basing your accusation.

    I assume you have some.

    everyone knows that they did not yell racial slurs like a large angry mob. it`s the SEIU members who yell racial slurs and beat up black people for being conservative. if the tea party was a liberal movement those black representatives would not have made it 5 feet into that crowd.

    health care for the 32 million people who have no health care is a good thing! thats like the population of Canada.

    i think obama is a good pres so far. by now people already thought bush and clinton were idiots. I sure hope he makes it through his term. good luck obama!

    Auburn, you`ll forgive me for taking the word of a Member of the US House of Representatives over that of a member of a website called i-am-bored.com. Especially one that`s previously been banned from the site on grounds of racism.

    Madest, the tea party is a movement of people who want this country run based on the constitution. They read it and say "Okay. This is how to run our country." Don`t say it is up to interpretation either. It has no ambiguity. It is a straight forward document that should be taken literally.

    Teabaggers had their chance in a guy named Ron Paul. Instead they called him a kook and he garnered less than 7% of the vote. Their new found fiscal restraint is only due to the fact they lost.

    My concerns are about the health care bill, and the direction it takes
    us is toward communism, quite frankly," he said"

    Oddly enough the most powerful "communist" country in the world China, doesn`t even have free socialized health care. If a Chinese person gets sick here they will have to pay to go to the doctor or get an operation. It`s much cheaper yes, but still it isn`t fully covered at all.
    Dear lord it`s all coming clear... is the USA now officially more communist than china?

    "This will make me even more unpopular, but even though I think Clinton did an OKAY job, Regan is still the best president of the last 50 years. We need another Regan in office. Who could it be?"

    1: By your stated age, the oldest you could have been when Reagan left office was 18. You were a CHILD for the entirety of his presidency. How can you accurately judge how great he was?

    2: You misspelt his name. TWICE!

    1. Lets consider the source of this article.

    2. Way to stereotype an entire group based on what a few people do.

    3. A congress that would have never passed a bill even with a clear majority without bribery, arm twisting, and threats should be up for scrutiny. In fact, our leaders should ALWAYS be up for scrutiny otherwise they are called dictators.

    "You are casting doubt in the man just because I misspelled his damn name."

    No. I am casting doubt on how much you personally know about the man because you misspelt his name.

    My implication is that if you don`t even know how to spell his name, then you are unlikely to know much about the man himself, and therefore are basing your opinion on how great he is on very little, if anything at all.

    That is what I am saying.

    "Your right about the American view of Communism . It`s so off the true meaniing it isn`t even funny"

    And the amusing thing is that they could easily use the word "socialism", which comes a little bit closer to accurately describing what they fear.

    "And i CAN make you a damn sandwich, because I am HEALTHY enough to do so because i have HEALTHCARE."

    The US has become more socialized than we`d care to believe, which is precisely why people are so upset when we take the first big step towards socializing our healthcare system.

    And that`s all this is: a $1,000,000,000,000.00 first step towards that goal, and that`s by their own estimates and not counting some of the medically-related companion provisions that were passed in the stimulus bill...

    I`m willing to admit exactly how socialist America has become. The truth is that pure capitalism is just as evil as pure socialism. In an ideal world, capitalism and socialism could be viable systems, but we will never live in an ideal world. People like to point to socialist countries that have failed as a way to demonize the concept, but they forget what capitalism did to the poor in this country.

    Pure capitalism has safe guards against the exploitation of labor, but the reality is that that is the last part of capitalism to ever be implemented and thus never has been. Our history of capitalism has been a history of exploitation. Being mostly capitalist brings child labor, declining wages, unsafe work conditions, the rape of our environment, and a fabulously wealthy 1%. If you think you`ll be in that 1%, then moving toward capitalism is for you, but for the rest of us a balance between capitalism and socialism is a good thing.

    "If you think you`ll be in that 1%, then moving toward capitalism is for you"

    That`s the thing though; so many people DO think they`ll be in that 1%, and never seem to realise that they`re far more likely to end up in the 99%.

    Somewhat similar I`d say to the way that the Jehovah`s Witnesses have over 7 million members who believe that only 144,000 people will get into heaven.

    I don`t think we`re talking about a zero-sum game here... 100% capitalism or 100% socialism. But I do think the argument that capitalism forces you to aspire to a 1% of the population which jealously hoards all the wealth is specious.

    The capitalism-based system in the United States has given rise to a level of personal wealth, personal comfort, benevolence, and technological achievement unrivaled in human history.

    While the effects of socialism are still ongoing, I argue that it leads to unsustainable national debt, lack of wealth generation, and a levelization of the vast majority of incomes on the individual level via taxation which suppresses innovation and growth. The East is on the rise specifically because they haven`t handcuffed themselves in the same way we are currently handcuffing ourselves in the west.

    Health care reform is an iron chain around our necks that will only deliver false promises while increasing our downward spiral into unsustai

    I believe history proves you wrong. Were your American ancestors the rail barons or nearly destitute farmers?

    You credit capitalism with technological advances, but I disagree. Technology builds upon itself and has been growing for far longer than capitalism can take credit for. Technology is primarily responsible for our current personal wealth and comfort.

    Too much socialism does have the negative results you outlined, but too much capitalism results in deep divides between the wealthy and poor. That is exactly why I believe a balance, not necessarily 50/50, is best.

    I think the health care bill crossed the line and is bad policy. I believe that a better solution would have come from breaking health insurance monopolies and encouraging competition. But I also believe that we have a responsibility to care for our citizens.

    I think you put too much emphasis on material growth. Yes, the east is a rising economic power, but their people suffer f

    Capitalism raises the standard of living for everyone, including the poorest.

    Even if you are unable to earn a living, only a wealthy country can afford to support you.

    All socialists seem to actually care about is keeping the entire population on a level of bare sustenance. We are not hive insects. We are individuals.

    "All socialists seem to actually care about is keeping the entire population on a level of bare sustenance."

    That`s not what socialism is about.

    In practice, countries that have a socialist lean, such as many in Europe, have a primarily capitalist society with a socialist safety net; the socialism ensures nobody falls below the "bare sustenance" level, as you put it, whilst the capitalism allows people to rise above that bare minimum if they put the effort in. Those who do rise above that level pay into the system to ensure that the bare minimum is maintained.

    They provide the safety net for others; but others also provide the safety net for them.

    It`s basically one giant insurance policy for the entire population.

    In Britain it`s even called that: National Insurance.

    YOU were temp banned by me on grounds of racism, nothing else. I`ll save you the embarrassment of quoting here what it was you SAID to get you banned. The time before that you were perm banned by fancylad. Again, I won`t embarrass you for saying what for, suffice to say perm bans are handed out for worse offences than temp bans.

    So, with all due respect, if you`re going to throw slander around that you were banned because this mod or that mod DISAGREES with you, I respectfully suggest you STFU

    are people suprised that the Tea Party is openly racist?

    come on people, they have done this before and used banners/posters at their rallies that were very racist.

    they are a group of fringe liberarians and republicans that wrongfully invoke the name of the Tea Party of hostorical reference and use the name for nothing mroe then pushing their own brand of extreme right wing views.

    we do need a third or even fourth party but these clowns are not it.

    I believe capitalism- the ability to innovate and profit from your own labor- was responsible for technology compounding and creating our standard of living today. And it`s the only proven system to do so. For example, steam power existed in the time of ancient greece, yet industrialization and the steam engine did not appear until a capitalist system was implemented.

    As to railroad barons, they did not hold everyone in the USA under their thumb (though their excesses were astounding- go visit Newport, RI!)- we were a mainly agrarian country at the time. People were immigrating to the USA in droves from Asia and Europe during the time of the rail barons... what does that say about the American standard of living by comparison? Whether that can continue as society shifts to the left remains to be seen, but I`m hesitant to move away from what we know works.

    The trick is to balance caring for those who need a hand without trading away our liberty; Obamacare does no

    Not like this is gonna convince you because I don`t think anything, save Jesus coming down and handing you the evidence, would sway your opinion, but here is a news report with a video of someone yelling f*g at Barney Frank.

    http://www.youtube .com/watch?v=9OlQNoqCzm8

    Bottom line, whether these reports are factual or not, your beliefs are always going to prevent you from ever believing they actually were yelled by sincere tea baggers. also theres a picture floating around a guy with a Texas flag shirt on holding a picket sign with the word n****r on it. do I believe this really happened? I have my doubts too, but I`ve seen that word used to death in blogs during the whole Tiger Woods thing, and he was just unfaithful. I think its naive to think someone wouldn`t use it in reference to an advocate of an issue people have been raging over for decades. ..."narry a racial slur was uttered" LMAO, give me a break!

    That`s absolutely false. It is just more noticeable when it is "your" president being called that. President Bush rarely even got the honorific "Mr." when liberals spoke of him towards the end of his presidency. Just wait and see with the next president.

    I used to think like that, too, about how candidates/presidents are spoken of, but then I realized it just depends on who it is.

    Why you so gullible, I-A-B?

    First, no one has yet produced video of anyone in that crowd saying the "N" word. Andrew Breitbart has offered a $10,000 cash reward for anyone who can produce a video of it. No takers so far...

    Second, even if we get a video with someone using the "N" word, that still doesn`t prove it was a Tea Party conservative who said it. It`s a long-established Chicago political trick to plant your supporters in your opponent`s crowd and have them shout racial or other slurs at your candidate in order to discredit your opponent by association. In 1972 Saul Alinsky (one of Obama`s mentors) instructed his acolytes to attend a speech by George H. W. Bush dressed up in Ku Klux Klan costumes. Whenever Bush said something in support of the Vietnam War, they stood up and waved placards reading, "The KKK supports Bush."

    Just don`t be too quick to believe what you hear in the media about this.

    The problem is some media started calling him `President Barrack Hussien Obama` and/or `President Barrack Obama`. This caused people to scream `racism` for the mere mention of his first and middle name. The media then, Afraid of being called `racist`, Decided on using `President Obama` almost universally. I`ve not heard `Mr. Obama` on the news very often, Unless they were addressing his departed father.

    vv CrakrJak: "No Tea Partier, That I know, Would stand for racial slurs or epithets of that nature"

    Tea Party Convention, 4th Feb 2010, Invited Speaker Tom Tancredo (he was on just before Sarah Palin, besides the point). I can`t decide what I like best: the xenophobic rhetoric when he speaks of how non-english speaking Americans shouldn`t be allowed to vote (love the fact that his grandparents were Italian, nice touch). Or the bit where he EMPHASISES the "Hussein" of Barack Hussein Obama, to rabble-rouse.

    Tea Party Convention Speech from Invited Speaker

    Respected conservative republicans, I suggest you step away from this Tea Party movement before the undercurrent of racism from some of your compatriots rises to the fore and swallows you along with it.

    @davymid. I fail to see what was racist or xenophobic about his comments. He was just commenting on how we have a LOT of non-citizens voting in our elections. They are predominately Mexican. People should be able to speak the truth, regardless of what it is.

    @Brassbull So why am I "desperate"? How do you know this? Why am I a "republican" for voicing support for the non-partisam Tea Party? A name YOU choose to slander in an entirely bigoted and Democrat way>?
    I case you STILL haven`t viewed the video, the bad word was said inside the building. No protest signs in sight, whoever was in there had gotten past security, eh?
    You sure seem convinced that "nothing" will change my opinions, when I`ve said what will, PROJECTION much>?
    Now be quiet troll-boy, adults are speaking, er, typing.

    @ auburnjunkey,
    You`ve proven your alliance with the right. No need to question any facts your fellow conservatives spew. They think like you so what they say must be true. Way to use that mind. Trig Palin would be proud.

    Not at all true. I disagree with most of them. I am not Right Wing. I am anti big government. Libertarian if you`re nasty.

    If that were true you wouldn`t have automatically jumped to the defense of your fellow conservative CrakrJak. You see liberals as lying cheating scum you defend conservatives and claim to be independent. I see through your ruse.

    I also never said I was independent. I said I was libertarian. Most (if not all) democrats want huge government. Libertarians are against that. Most conservatives want what the founding fathers wanted, which was small government. This is why libertarians most of the time side with conservatives. I also agree with crackerjack.

    vv Good for you auburn! Don`t take that name-calling crap from maddest, he`s still in grade 3 you know (arguement-wise at least).
    As for reality:

    There were a minimum of 2 cameras rolling during this "n-name calling" and yet not one frame of evidence has been put forward? Highly unlikely. Also a good read in general, eh?

    What makes you think conservatives want small government? It was republicans that started the drug war. It was republicans that involved themselves in the Terry Schiavo case. It`s republicans that support sending your tax dollars to Isreal. It was republicans who shut down online poker. They denied Habeus Corpus and spied on all Americans. Remember it was republicans who marginalized Ron Paul by labeling him a kook. Never fear there`s one Canadian on your side.

    vv there;s a grain of truth in what maddest says, even if it`s a bit of a straw-dog.
    Reps are for smallER gov`t than Dems. In Dem-land HUGE gov`t is good! Reps think just plain LARGE gov`t is enough. Libertarians thing SMALL as possible gov`t works best.
    IMHO at least.
    BTW Prez O is also spying on the people, using the exact same laws as Prez Bush, which O re-signed eh? In fact many of the things Bush is demonized for, O has continued, without a peep of protest from the MSM.
