Good for you. Don’t ever let them “civilize” us to the point where we’d make even so-so slaves.

We seek a restoration, not a revolution.

It is the Marxist scum who are in the middle of the revolution... against the People of the United States and our Constitution!

Frankly, I don’t care if the Democrats have a voting majority. I mean, seriously, we aren’t a democracy. The majority has no moral or legal right to do whatever it damn well pleases. We have rules. We fought a revolution and created this contract called the US Constitution that was meant to protect minorities from the depredations of political majorities.

Well, they’ve warped the US Constitution beyond all possible recognition. Government nowadays can apparently do whatever it wants EXCEPT pass laws against sodomy or restrict abortion.

Democrats use the law of the land to seize powers that do not legitimately and morally belong to them. Who are they trying to kid? They make the laws up as they go and only obey them when it serves their purposes, and then they just expect everyone else to go along with that, because “we voted, and it’s the law of the land.” BS!

Looks more like 1776 to me Senator

Correct.... We are in REVOLUTION (not shooting yet but revolution nun the less). Revolution is overthrow of oppression not succession, though it may come to that as well.

Sesecession yes, Civil War no. The Red State wienies don’t have the gumption to fight.

No fight necessary. All that's needed is to pass Articles of Secession in one of more state legislatures, and it's done.

This isn't 1861. Americans no longer have the stomach to murder millions of their fellow citizens over the purely political question of union.

King Obama has already taken control of most America. Proof is that so far his 5 years have not improved anything in America but on the contrary have weaken America. America has been forced to follow communism and as soon as the real enforcement begins to take place it will be an eyeopener. It could be stopped or slowed down but do not expect the GOP as a savior. The Tea Party, which is not a party but the masses of people, would be our only chance.

Neither Civil or Revolutionary War.

A War of Restoration of the Republic, is what is called for.

On the Senate floor before 10 a.m. Friday, the senator gave a speech describing how American politics have reached the level at which “a small group of willful men and women who have a certain ideology”—read: the tea party and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas—have been able to take over the congressional budget debate in the last week.


Correction:

We have reached a level at which “a small group of willful men and women who have a certain idiology were able to take over the congressional process and pass a 2700 page bill WHICH NO ONE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO READ”.

Blabbering by new world order-owned politicians.

Funny they reference their elites-caused Civil War.

Until enough new world order bigwigs are brought up on trial for war crimes and executed, the same problems will persist because the elites will continue with their plans and strategies.

Let me see if I get this straight. The US congress has one of its historic all time low approval ratings. Simply put, Americans hate their guts. And these people Americans hate, thing that by attacking the TEA Party, they will make Americans hate the TEA Party ? No. Americans will love the TEA Party because they are standing up to what Americans hate.

Or maybe that's the reason for the billion hollow-points?

They are also getting ready to install martial law due to the flu influenza this flu season. They will use twitter and the MSM to broadcast emergency alert messages. Then they will close down all roads and traffic. Then they will force immunization for the flu. The hollow points are for the resistors and people who refuse the shot.

not to be haughty but if it is followed and dispensed equally and justly, the rule of law (the US Constitution) works, hence the reason for the citizen movement called the Tea Party. This current US government is so corrupt that it now mirrors the criminal level of mafia crime families; too many of the insider elites in DC desire to maintain their control as to lay claim to the spoils they confiscate from the people. The old saying; if you do something wrong for long enough, sooner or later you will get caught. The DC establishment politicians have finally been caught.

I am still not comfortable with the color coding of the states.

Remember that it was the liberal media who switched the colors on us. I forget exactly when they did that, but it was because they didn't want to be identified as 'red' because it was too close to the truth of Commie red.

Didn't do 'em any good. Most of us are perfectly comfortable with it now.

Sesecession yes, Civil War no. The Red State wienies don’t have the gumption to fight.

Secession is a valid option to weaken the Federal parasite class.

However, looking across our Republic, I can't see one Governor who has a Warrior mindset in the cause of Liberty.

The political class of both parties are quickly marching us towards rabid Socialism.

It was the 2000 election cycle, when they desperately wanted Algore to win - so much so that they started to mis-report the election returns to suppress the GOP turnout.

That year set the pattern for this nation's current condition.

Sen. Tom Harkin to Congress: "We are at one of the most dangerous points in our history."

Yes we are senator, thanks to a radical ideologue in the White House, a supine Congress, and a sycophantic media. If they want a civil war, I say bring it on.

"Since they can't get their way," Harkin said, "they're going to create this confusion and discourse and hope that the public will be so mixed up in who is to blame for this, that they'll blame both sides."

There's plenty of blame to go around, especially for career hacks like Harkin.

At this point it looks like they are planning to install the fake flu emergency right after the public is forced to start joining the very unpopular Obamacare exchanges. They must be anticipating a major backlash. Cruz's "filibuster" was an example of the coming backlash. If they can however get Obamacare delayed by one year, then they will probably hold off until next year. IMHO.

It's all the Republicans fault. As the Democrats went far left and consistently forced that agenda down the people's throat the Republicans have NOT BEEN THE OPOSITION PARTY.

BRING ON THE NEW OPPOSITION PARTY and throw the other bums out by recall or in the primaries IMO. Send them ZERO money for the bad votes and maybe as a token of your love send them a Depends diaper.
