They are republicans who cant get over the fact that the guy they voted for lost and it probably makes it worse to them that he lost to a black guy.

Congratulations you won!

I haven't really been paying attention but i think it's a bunch of libertarians who wants Gov to get out of everything.

Libertarians are weird. If they had their way all of America would look like Detroit from Robocop.

Congratulations you won!

Well now I know.

Psychotic republicans, and I heard a bit of ron paul in there to.

But some nice earl grey tea sounds lovely.

from what i learnt there are 3 types of 'tea partiers'

1) the deranged lunatics
2) The Ilfitrators:
a)Who want do discredit and disrupt the movement
b)Parasitic opportunists like bachman and palin

3) genuine ppl who believe in small gov't, protection of libertiesetc etc

I believe in both large and small government. By that I mean the federal government has to much power, I want to see a 50/50 split in power between federal and state government. I wanna see the state determine things like legalizing pot, and I want the federal government to handle foreign policy etc etc

I believe in personal liberties. I think a person has the right to determine almost anything about their own life, but mostly limited to imposing on others.
