You must have gone to school at TUSD, because you obviously do not know of what you speak.
The Tea Party started with great potential, and good ideas.
Then, as happened with the Republican Party before it, it was co-opted by the religious/social right.
That makes it an oxymoron. One can not espouse a smaller, less intrusive government on one hand, and then espouse a larger, more intrusive government on the other hand, which is what the religious/social right is about, just like the progressives they love to hate.
David, we are on the same page.
I continually have to bite my tongue also.
Machu Pichu - All of Congress are 1% ers. Even the ones you so slavishly think are on your side. And both parties are bought and owned by corporate interests, including Wall Street.
David Mendez - you still have not addressed the basis of my comment. That both sides are convinced of the fact that they know better than us what is good for us, and do not hesitate to use the power of government to enforce their view. What is your answer to that?
The duopoly of Democrats and Republicans, two sides of the same coin, are equally to blame.
They are both convinced of the fact that they know better than us what is good for us, and do not hesitate to use the power of government to enforce their view.
Our only hope is that we get so disgusted by both sides that are third party arises, dedicated to individual liberty.
It kind of sucks that these things are "all or nothing". HB2305 had some very good and very needed changes in it, but also some extremely bad changes.
The problem that the supporters of HB2305 apparently did not think of is that there are provisions in there that upset a broad spectrum of interests that would not normally have any common ground, giving rise to the large number of signatures turned in for the Referendum.
I will vote to overturn it for reasons that you might not, and you will vote to overturn it for reasons I might not. HB2305 is dead.
It's life. Deal with it.
