Veto the Tea Party.!

Some mornings when I get up I wonder if the political campaigns will ever end, and how many more nut jobs will join the crowd.
Here in Minnesota it is unbelievable that intelligent people will probably be sending Michele Bachman back to Washington.
It is looking grim for Democrat Taryl Clark a very attractive intelligent woman who is experienced and probably the hardest working candidate I have ever seen.
She will probably lose because of and Independent candidate who doesn't really give a dam as long as his name is out there and he gets a little attention.
He can take just enough votes in the election to insure Bachman wins, unless the people in her district wake up.

When you look around the country you see the ignorance of some of the candidates the Tea Party is supporting.
then you have to wonder where their brains are.
Rand Paul wants to eliminate Social Security and Medicare and probably isn't the only one of that group who thinks this way.
Sharron Angle thinks doctors should be paid by the barter system.
There may be some hope in that race because polls show Harry Reid inching ahead even though he isn't very popular in Nevada right now.
But with all the craziness that has come out of her mouth, he should be running away with this race and it isn't over yet.

The newest member of this tin foil hat club is Christine O'Donnell.
I love Bill Maher and he is slowly releasing tapes of her weirdness from his past shows.
I think the Democrats can pull this one out, but who knows whats a head.
I guess we'll just have to hope that the voters will eventually wake up and realize that Obama can do nothing if they take away his majority.
Then Obama has to wake up and realize he may only have two years to get things done without any compromising from across the aisle

If this economy doesn't turn around Obama will be gone in 2012 and the thought of any of the Republican candidates out there becoming the next President is a very scary thought indeed.

I hope these nut jobs keep running for office, because it's good entertainment value.

Ron Paul does NOT want to end medicare and social security, he wants to fix them.

Here is his platform:

"■I will never, ever vote for a taxpayer bailout of a private industry. Whether it’s big banks, automakers, or any other industry — you succeed or fail on your own.
■I will not vote for an unbalanced budget. I will not vote for a tax increase. Ever.
■I will fight for new rules like a Balanced Budget Amendment and Term Limits.
■I will not take ANYTHING off the table in the fight to balance the budget. Anyone who says something like they will “freeze non-defense discretionary spending” is blowing smoke at you and hoping you won’t notice. That would balance the budget — MAYBE — in about 80 years.
■We have to keep our promises to seniors and keep our country strong, but every area has things that can be cut. Every agency has things that are duplicative or that could be done better or cheaper.
■I will propose and force a vote on an Enumerated Powers Act, to force Congress to point to the part of the Constitution that justifies their bills.
■I will fight for the Bill of Rights. Democrats often love the 4th amendment. Republicans the 2nd. I will fight for them all, which means fighting for your free speech, gun rights, and civil liberties. Laws that infringe on ANY of these make the federal government more powerful, and we cannot continue to allow that.
■I will not allow our troops to be the world’s policeman, and I will force a vote on a Declaration of War if any President seeks to commit our military to battle.
What you’ve just read above is an agenda unlike any politician in the country. While solidly conservative, it also shows first, a great loyalty to the Constitution and to our freedom. You cannot fight for liberty while voting for bills that embolden the state. You cannot fight for some of our founding rights without others. And you cannot enable change in Washington by sending the same old people there. "

I'm sorry to hear Tarryl isn't doing well.....I contributed to her campaign despite living in California because I believe in what she is doing, and Michelle Bachmann wouldn't know how to help Americans if she walked on water!

Thanks Chris, I am hoping people wake up..she is behind but it isn't impossible.
All we need is a "Bachman moment" just before the election.

I can't believe there haven't been many!!! She and Coulter always seem to come up with some real gems!

I'm not into the political scene, Gigi, but I try to listen to both points of view on issues in an ongoing effort to strike a balance. :)
