we rebelled by Satansgoalie we rebelled by Satansgoalie
It's true. They did...
I mean, the British put a tax on their favorite drink and they flipped out. Our government is sticking their hands down our pants at the airports, the feds are spying on people without warrants and congress is getting away with insider trading. But as long as we can watch our football games, eat our mcdonalds and play our fucking xbox we'll set idly by and keep quite. Really? Our founders would be so ashamed of us...

and as always, my political work is free to use.

Actually, I don't like football (or sports in general), I prefer BK (they have onion rings) and I'd rather be on my computer than the xbox. But, whatever.

it was a bit more.  they were governed by someone that no one voted for

honestly, i think the better analogy for the tea party would probably be more similar to confederates than the tea party

Ain't that the truth.

Research what Franklin said about the British Parliament forbidding the colonies from using their own currencies.

"The truth is the best propaganda." - Adolf Hitler

It's all propaganda.

Yeah. Very true. Would the founders' ghosts flip out if they saw us accept the 16th amendment? Yes. Socialism, hell yeah! XP

I understand, but remember, they were taxed without being told, for not really any reason other than to pay for the war.
They had no representation, and this doesn't count for the US because we're all here, but England is across an ocean.

However, now we have that, so what do you expect us to do? And do you have proof that the feds are spying on people and congress getting away with insider trading?

This is in no way intended to offend anyone, I am merely trying to prove a point.

Yes, I share the same view.
It must be really shamefull, that if the Founding Fathers looked at both GOP and the Tea Party then they would only find what are now just fakes who have sold out their dream at a good bargain to the corporations. And to note, the Tea Party isn't even the real deal, no way. In fact it was known as the Boston Tea Party, and it had completly different aspirations and goals compared to the fundamentalist view of the Tea Party. The 'Tea Party' is just a bunch of gun slinging, bible thumping loopos who would drag into a Venus like hell with this 'Atlantic Rift and unlimited recourses from god' bullshit. And I just hate it, absolutly, how they throw around all this racist crap about Obama, and how he is supposedly the cause of the recession, and all those Muslim rantings.

Republicans & Democrats (don't forget them) are all apart of the problem. We need to break out of the Left/Right paradigm that the Government loves to keep us in. Labels like Liberal and Conservative only serve to keep us arguing amongst ourselves while never realizing what is really going on. Only a fool would think that a politician much less a political party cares about them on a personal level.

As far as the "racist crap" thrown about by the Tea Party, I wouldn't go as far as to say they're racist (the group as a whole). To do so would mean that I somehow have the ability to look into their soul and know their true intentions, which of course, no one can. To say that you can is just a lie. What you're really doing is making a gross generalization. And after all, isn't making generalizations about a person or a group part of what is considered "racism"? It's just a sign (to me at least) that the person using that term is unable to debate real issues choosing instead to focus on the lowest common denominator. After all, how does one defend themselves against a label like "racist"? Once you call someone racist they automatically lose. Who wants to been seen defending a "racist"? In my opinion, it's just a cheap shot. Once I hear it used in these sorts of context, I just quit listening.

I would strongly suggest anyone wanting to take part in the political discourse and be taken seriously, consider refraining from using such strong labels so freely.

Hmm, yes, they'll just call you communist then - something like that. There are other, more efficient ways to get at them anyways.

Back then, a bunch of citizens with muskets could field against an army.

Today, we have tanks, fighter jets, and missiles, and they aren't exactly available for civilian use.

Laziness sucks, but is far from the worst problem.

The best way nowdays is to make as many babies as you can, raise them the proper way, and take back the system through re-infiltration. Its a long process, but that is the new way to wage war, or way to take power over a nation.

That is true. Have you seen the movie Idiocracy? :)

However, from a power standpoint, it shouldn't matter much because a large part of the dumber faster-reproducing population usually is too apathetic to vote or cannot vote due to a felony conviction... In any event, larger numbers of people with the same cultural/political values/ideas is always a plus.

"...We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars, but we won't. We're slowly learning that fact."

Some know but the masses still cling to the dream of winning the lotto or American Idol or any of the get rich quick dribble being passed off today. People never believe things can happen here unless it happens to them!
