Bill Maher Explains Why the Tea Party is Not You

On HBO program Real Time, host Bill Maher took a few minutes to explain why the Tea Party is not in step with regular Americans. Maher used polling data to illustrate the fact that a majority of Americans disagree with the Tea Party on climate change, health care, immigration and gay marriage. Maher point was that the Tea Party does not represent the views of a majority of Americans.

Here is the video

Maher said, “Now when I hear Christine O’Donnell say I’m you, I take it personally because I think back to how our love making was so raw and powerful it was hard to know where my body ended and hers began, but if I were you, I’d really want her to stop saying she was you. 86% of teabagggers think climate change is a hoax. That’s not you. Tea partiers want to repeal the health care law, but two thirds of Americans either like or want it to go further. 59% of Americans support gay marriage and civil unions. Tea partiers support traditional gender roles where men are in charge like Glenn Beck, and women are soft and emotionally fragile with spooky mood swings like Glenn Beck.” Six in ten Americans think illegal Mexicans should have a path to citizenship and be allowed to stay here, and the other four in ten are illegal Mexicans.”

The Real Time host continued, “Now I know that you tea baggers at home are already blogging, if Americans are like you Bill, then how come the Republicans are going to take over Congress?” Well first of all thank you for watching, I know there’s wrestling on another channel, and second to answer your question, the Democrats will lose because a) They never brag about their achievements, and b) They never get it, that these days you have to sum up your message in one succinct phrase like we’ll cut your taxes or here’s a photo of my penis.”

Maher went on to argue that Democrats could hold on to power by running on a campaign to legalize pot. He said that the legalization issue gets young voters to the polls, and it would give the Democrats wedge issue to get their voters to the polls. I think it is a moot point what the marijuana issue could do for Democrats, because politicians in both parties are so terrified of being painted “soft on drugs” that they won’t touch the issue with a hundred foot pole. Maher offered a great practical point, but practicality and politics are not often seen together.

Equally tied to their 2012 future is what is about to happen to the Republican Party if this slate of candidates wins in 2010. Due to the fact that most of the people who support gay marriage, climate change, immigration reform, and health care are not going to vote, 2010 is going to be contested in front of a non-representative electorate. In the days after the election this point will be ignored by the pundits and media types who will be trying to discern “the meaning” of the 2010 election.

While they are obsessing about the meaning, almost everyone in the media will miss the bigger point that by sending these candidates to Congress, Republicans will have sown the seeds of their own demise. In 2012, everyone else, who isn’t a Republican, is going to show up to vote, and they are not going to be inclined to support candidates who are anti-gay marriage, anti-immigrant, who want the health care bill to do less, and who think climate change is a hoax.

In a small low turnout election, the loonies can win. This is exactly what’s going to happen in 2010. Bill Maher is correct though, the loonies aren’t you, and when you see the direction that they want to take the country in, you are going to be very upset, and you are going to make sure that you, your friends, and your neighbors show up at the polls to reelect Barack Obama and repair the Great Mistake of 2010. Bill Maher was exactly right. The writing is already on the wall for the potential incoming Republican class of 2010, and he offered a better piece of analysis than viewers are likely to get on any of the cable networks on Election Night.

  1. Excellent. You’re so right about the pundits take on this whole debacle. This was one of the best Real Times in a long time – it was great to have a Republican who didn’t feel like they had to scream over everyone else, and who was sane. Poor thing, she must be lonely.

    By the way, Happy Birthday Boss:-)

  2. At this point the Republicans, or should I say the scared to death of the tea party people winning this November may be a godsend as you say. Maybe the people need 2 more years of watching them devastate the US with political and corporate corruption in order to finally tell themselves something may be wrong here. Maybe watching us be the only civilized country in the world that lets diabetics die for no reason may help them see, I dont know.

    Happy Birthday Jason, you might touch up that photo cause you looking kinda peaked there

    :)

  3. Bill no thanks

    we dont want support your Corporate friends & Goldman Sachs selling carbon credits pocketing “”taxpayer cash”” on climate change! while our electricty bills and heating costs skyrocket (easy for you Bill a millionaire to say)

    No thanks Bill ..We dont want to pay 40% in taxes the equivalent of having to pay for everything on menu in “Prevention” medicine on NAZIonalized Hellcare bill to fatten Corporate Bureacrats in Big-Pharma

    No thanks Bill

    And

    No thanks Bill

    We want those who are Proud to be American and what it stands for Bill comming here …Not those who believe they have a right entitled to our land & jobs

  4. Bill also tell Obama that you DONT GROW AND ECONOMY by TAXING GROWTH! and cutting it down to size…thank you…

    And Bill you’re a millionaire
    so you know that TAXES DO NOT HURT BILLIONAIRES (many who find favor w/. Govt.)

    No .they hurt “NEW WEALTH” middle class looking to climb the ladder & *New Start Ups

    …and MOST HURT are the CONSUMER because tax increases effect costs of “things” hurting the poor the most!

  5. ATTENTION DELAWARE::: If you like higher “”TAXES”” —> which only lead to higher”””COSTS””” on products you “buy” …and more “””LOSS”” of “””JOBS”””” while YO Ur taxdollar never trickles down to the poor.
    but pocketed by Corporate Bureacrats & Corrupto-crat specail interest then vote Coons!

    their is a clear choice Delaware that is O’Donnell

  6. The reason Republicans will get votes is simple… people want change to come magically without any sacrifice by anyone. Because Democrats couldn’t fix things in one fell swoop and 15 minutes, people will vote for the loud jackasses who claim they can fix things… knowing they’re lying while they’re saying it.

    When you have a $1.3 trillion deficit, it’s not fixable by magic. You have to cut one of the big three endowments (medicare/medicaid, social security or the military) and/or raise taxes. Anyone saying anything else is a liar or an idiot.

  7. The problem with Maher’s bogus argument is the tea party is about limited government, not any of the issues he lists. And he’s wrong when he says most Americans like Obamacare. Over 60% want it repealed. Most people don’t believe in Climate Change or don’t think it’s an important issue. People are split on Gay Marriage, but since a lot of tea partiers are libertarians, they don’t even think government should have any say in marriage. Frankly, Maher reveals his bias when he calls them Tea Baggers. Point blank, Maher is pimping for the status quo. No wonder he’s still a nobody.

  8. Sarah Jones, you are spot on. Your post is delicious. I am going to take impeccable care of myself, because I want to be around with my popcorn and beverage of choice when Palin implodes. And, as you observe, it will happen. Remove Palin’s narcissistic supply & what will Sarah Palin Heath have? Nothing.

  9. That was a poll so your word doesn’t change reality there buddy. And the tea party is full of crap or else they wouldn’t have big government socialists like palin as their leader. or nominate morons like angle and odennell.

  10. Did you see that post “you don’t like being called teabaggers? how about kochsuckers”? So funny. Wish I had the link.

  11. Actually limited government was not an issue when the Tea party was started. That came into being when the republicans and the Koch Brothers kidnapped it

    You think you want limited government, the Koch borthers want it becuase a limited government is far easier to control.

  12. Actually you could drop foreign aid and keep all of the above. But anyone knows that taxes need to be raised. Its 2010, we are in 2 wars and our taxes are lower than during Reagans time. Bingo.

  13. Hate to tell you Mr Right, but if you’re paying 40% tax, you ARE a millionaire like bill. that’s the whole point. The wealthy pay a higher % on earnings, we’re currently at the lowest tax rate in modern history with the largest deficit. as much as I hate to say it, I think taxes need to return to where it was when Regan was President (remember him? slightly conservative guy…)

  14. @ Sam Hain, just a couple of points. Maher’s showing of the O’donnel tapes, that subsequently got mainstream news coverage was the catalyst of people finding out how much of a nut she was. I fail to see how he is a nobody. Second, you say none of the things he mentioned were tea party issues, watch some of the videos on that little site called youtube. Third, I am sick and tired of teaparty folks claiming they are libertarian, name one viable candidate that dose not have (r) next to their name. Most of the people who claim to be libertarian always vote republican. If people asked the as much questions about the general knowledge of the tea party candidates as they do about Obama’s birth certificate they would know the kind of people they are putting into office.

  15. Mr. RIGHT, you make all fiscal conservatives look like insane, uneducated, jackasses. Please stop, & take down your retarded website filled with absolute buffoonery. You’re either a.) trolling, b.) secretly a democrat doing this to make conservatives look stupid, or c.) actually that stupid. Whatever the case, please stop. You’re not helping the cause, just making us look really bad. Also, your syntax, spelling, and grammar are terrible. The grownups are trying to talk here, so please just run along & watch some wrestling or something.

  16. “Maher’s showing of the O’donnel tapes, that subsequently got mainstream news coverage was the catalyst of people finding out how much of a nut she was. I fail to see how he is a nobody.”

    Maher is preaching to a choir full of ignorant Huffpo Democrats who’ve been brainwashed to believe they’re Independents. His biggest accomplishment in life is looking like Hugh Hefner, but that’s not really impressive at all, it’s more nutty and ridiculous, mostly creepy.

    “Second, you say none of the things he mentioned were tea party issues, watch some of the videos on that little site called youtube.”

    He’s a moth to the flame. The more Maher talks about the Tea Party, it shows how desperate and dumb he is. He obsesses over clips from POLITICALLY INCORRECT, ffs; you would think the name of the show would clue him in that guest on that show generally didn’t give a damn what they said.

    “Third, I am sick and tired of teaparty folks claiming they are libertarian, name one viable candidate that dose not have (r) next to their name.”

    B-O-O H-O-O… You should be more tired of Democrats pretending they’re Indpendents, after all, they’ve been emperors without clothes longer than the Tea Party has existed. You should also be sick of the fact Democrats act like they own your vote; they treat you like you’re they’re slave, like your energy and time belong to them.

    “If people asked the as much questions about the general knowledge of the tea party candidates as they do about Obama’s birth certificate they would know the kind of people they are putting into office.”

    Ron Paul and Ron Paul’s supporters WILL take the Tea Party back; you can count on it. Candidates like Palin and O’Donnell — idiots like Beck — they won’t hold up for long, because even the true Ron Paul Tea Party members have been tearing chunks out of all them, and not with puff stories about witchcraft and masturbation, but with their hypocritical anti-American policy positions.

    If you and your idiot pals spent less time supporting and voting for *The Lesser of Two Evils*, playing dumb games like Maher tries to play, you wouldn’t be in this mess today. You should find a candidate with PRINCIPLES, if you can, but … I’m guessing you can’t, because you won’t.

  17. no 60% don’t like it, some want it repealed. there are plenty of others who know it was a less than hoped for attempt at an important issue, and would rather change it than start back at square one, with no reforms. i won’t cite a per cent for either group, the more accurate measure will be on nov 2.

    see you at the polls.

  18. Classic…so essentially what Bill is saying is that the majority of America…the crowd that should be calling all the shots and has good judgment is simply just not going to make it to the polls…so the nut jobs will win. Is it just me or does that sound really stupid? That for some reason the intelligent majority are just apathetic…if they are so intelligent why are they placing the decisions in the hands of the supposed crazy minority Tea Partiers? Pathetic. Anyone who believes this mumbo jumbo is a clown. Tell ya what…you and you supposed genius IQ can go ahead and sit on the couch watching Bill on election day…contemplating the bang up job your President has done thus far…and we’ll be busy fixing this thing.

  19. You can say he only speaks to brainwashed democrats, but I saw the clip of him show the tape about the “the witch” on a completely different show. Seriously, she made an ad proclaiming that she was not a witch. If it was not hurting her why did she have to respond to it?

    The teaparty has over 150 candidates on the ballot, I wonder why people are obsessing over them?

    Ron Paul and his supporters will take the tea party back? O’donnel beat her opponent in the primary. No democrats involved. Everyone is now distancing themselves from her and calling her and idiot. Who voted for her exactly?

    She it not the only idiot in the tea party and the youtube videos I mentioned were not from some politically incorrect episode from a decade ago. They are from the tea party rallies, and the candidates themselves.

  20. I will have voted and the polls will be closed by the time his show comes on, but the point he was making was that typically candidates do not get people out to vote, issues do. I do not have a political affiliation, and I have never voted straight party. I vote for the guy who has my issues in mind, and who wont try and jam his religion down my throat. Mid term elections have a low turn out made up of blue hairs that always vote, and this year they are really scared that Obama is going to implement sharia law, take away their guns, and women start having abortions at wal-mart.

  21. “You can say he only speaks to brainwashed democrats, but I saw the clip of him show the tape about the “the witch” on a completely different show. Seriously, she made an ad proclaiming that she was not a witch. If it was not hurting her why did she have to respond to it?”

    She responded to it to give the puff pieces credibility, to make them look like they’re more important than they should be, to make it look like that is the kind of crap people should be discussing.

    They’re trying to control the spectrum of discourse; it’s similar to how Glen Beck now talks like Ron Paul & Alex Jones, it’s to give himself credit as a spokesman for Liberty (which he absolutely isn’t), and he does it to give FOX News and the RINOS/NEO-CONS credibility. It’s all an act, meant to steer your attention away from what should be discussed, more important issues.

    “The teaparty has over 150 candidates on the ballot, I wonder why people are obsessing over them?”

    Because, “obsessed” people are typically idiots.

    “Ron Paul and his supporters will take the tea party back? O’donnel beat her opponent in the primary. No democrats involved. Everyone is now distancing themselves from her and calling her and idiot. Who voted for her exactly?”

    I don’t know where you’ve been since 2000, but there are electronic voting machines, and they can be hacked. In other words, elections can be fixed. (And, the fixed elections, they should be one of those more important topics.)

    As for Ron Paul supporters, they WANT to take the party back, but the naive people whom assume Palin or O’Donnell are the figureheads behind the Tea Party — those niave people aren’t helping. People that accuse Rand Paul of being a racist and a kidnapper, they’re not helping, but they’re perpetrating more bullshit.

    Nobody said the world isn’t full of idiots, but these days — just to make things clear — there are idiots trying to sabotage, and there are idiots that believe the puff pieces are important that render the sabotage victorious. And, I’m saying, people should quit giving validation/credibility to the sabotage, shoot down such puff pieces when you know they’re bullshit.

    “She it not the only idiot in the tea party and the youtube videos I mentioned were not from some politically incorrect episode from a decade ago. They are from the tea party rallies, and the candidates themselves.”

    Of course, they want you to dwell on witchy nonsense, ALL DAY LONG. It lowers the spectrum of discourse, and it allows for even more idiotic distractions to enter debates so you wont talk about what matters most; it opens a new way for your subconscious to be filled to the brim with absolute bullshit.

    It’s also similar to how California ran Gary Coleman and Mary Carey against Arnold Swarchenegger, to give Swarcheneggar credit by surrounding him with a bunch of clownish candidates. They want you to think, “Ah man, I know Swarcheneggar is ridiculous, but the alternatives are so much more ridiculous. I can’t vote for Mary Carey or Gary Colman. It looks like Arnold is my man!”

    Except, when Christie O’Donnel is in the debates, in this case, she gives her NEO-LIB opponent credibility while distracting people from Ron Paul’s Tea Party at the same time. The NWO establishment really doesn’t care whether Coons or O’Donnell wins, because — on a subconscious level — either will discredit the true Tea Party movement even, more so; if a bunch of Democrats defeat the impostor Tea Party members, it will look like movement for Liberty has been an absolute fraud; if a bunch of impostor Tea Party candidates win, it will still look like the movement for Liberty has been a waste.

    They intentionally created another Catch 22 that is hard to escape, mentally, but — you can escape it — by not allowing yourself to be distracted by any of the mindgames anymore. You should try to save yourself, at least; you should open your mind and block the puff pieces from entering it, and you shouldn’t allow yourself to be distracted or led astray by *The Best of Two Evils* debate anymore. Most importantly, you shouldn’t allow yourself or others to be tricked into supporting impostors and liars anymore.

  22. “I don’t know where you’ve been since 2000, but there are electronic voting machines, and they can be hacked. In other words, elections can be fixed. (And, the fixed elections, they should be one of those more important topics.)”

    In other news: Elvis is still alive and you’re a genius!

    Please stop reading so many conspiracy theory books and look into studying sociology.

  23. “Please stop reading so many conspiracy theory books and look into studying sociology.”

    Don’t be an ignoramus, grow a brain, and accept reality…

    Hacked elections are as real these days as they’ve been over the recent election years. The two parties are still notorious for fixing elections and you would be wise not to ignore that.

    On top of the fixed elections, you have crap like this happening: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDjPY_ngxNU&p=91E549765A27B974

    And, you have news about the large number of Ron Paul supporters blatantly suppressed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFpJGL0jIjI

    Bottom line, the frauds need to be exposed!

  24. Mr Bill Maher,

    While I do share some of your opinions, I feel that your words in this particular article are rude.

    Good day,
    Hans

  25. I don’t think that you understand basic economics. Take a class or something. I guarantee that I am younger than you, and I’m almost certain that that is by a lot, and I understand more about politics and economics than you do. Please don’t type anything like this again, you only make yourself look like a fool.

  26. Lots of crazies here. Let’s examine some points.

    Do we want to tax the rich more? The argument against this is that we won’t grow business this way. Some very good people who happen to be rich do exist and while we can not downplay this. Please remember that the majority of businesses are moving their businesses overseas. There is no incentive to just allowing them to do this. The complaining won’t get any less incessant or loud if we try to address these core issues either though. A short term benefit for now though would be to tax the wealthy appropriately. This is actually how it’s done in the rest of the civilized world, a primary reason so many of the rich live in America and just shop, and ship their jobs, oversees. We can try and create a more thorough recovery plan but then we do actually threaten real jobs hoping that the rich will just do the right thing and move more business back to America.

    The truth is this is the primary flaw in all of this. Could national health-care be all about profiteering and decreased care? Of course, it could be but that’s not the intent. People might ruin it but can they really do any worse than the people who have already ruined it? The original bill which could not pass through republican scrutiny was all about limiting greed but some believe that is un-American. We still lose from uninsured payments, the poor still die in mass, the moderately successful become poor, the rest of us still suffer higher infant mortality, and die younger. How much worse can it really get? Some seem to believe however that we must make sure that insurance companies are guaranteed their massive profits though because profit is the American dream. The reality is this dream was never exclusive and applies to all of us even if men have erred in the understanding of it in the past. Why should our country be the only civilized country that allows its citizens to wither away medically and financially when a solution can be offered?

    Nothing in politics is black and white. Their is never an absolute right or an absolute wrong but when this country suffers such a disparity in the number of rich and the rest of us then we need to consider that maybe something is broke. Redistribution of wealth is commonly attacked because who wants to give the bully their hard earned lunch money but we must realize that if we pay these companies/millionaires to be millionaires then they do have a responsibility to our nation to contribute back to it’s prosperity.

    The people who are really stealing our jobs aren’t the illegal immigrants. They are the companies who pay legal foreign workers less or ship our jobs legally out of our country. I know of almost no citizen trying to get the job at the home depot bus stop right now and having a problem finding the work.

    We should all dream to be prosperous but we should all know that it also comes with some responsibility.

  27. You people shouldn’t be allowed to vote. You are a danger to us all. You are so misinformed it’s scary. Christine may be a nice person, but she is obviously not cut out to be a lawmaker or in charge of money — if you think she’s such a great money manager, give her your money! Oh, you already did. and she spent it on her townhouse mortgage, which is why she will be in orange before she’s in the senate.

    You are a fool. Don’t vote more than once, please. We know how you righties get feeling entitled to things.

  28. Wow. Break out the emergency food backpack, the NWO is not just happy to send out it’s own leftist agents, they are also sending out fake tea party agents to lend credibility to the horrible leftist agents. Little did I know that this morning I was going to stumble upon an honest to goodness x-file.

    “They intentionally created another Catch 22 that is hard to escape, mentally, but — you can escape it — by not allowing yourself to be distracted by any of the mindgames anymore. You should try to save yourself, at least; you should open your mind and block the puff pieces from entering it, and you shouldn’t allow yourself to be distracted or led astray by *The Best of Two Evils* debate anymore. Most importantly, you shouldn’t allow yourself or others to be tricked into supporting impostors and liars anymore.”

    Thank you Morpheous, I might be able to escape the matrix now that I know this.

  29. I would consider myself part of the tea party.

    1) I’m not a republican and didn’t support the war effort. I am an independent.

    2) The first statement does NOT imply that I view the Obama alternatives as change for the better.
    — I don’t support the bailouts. I believe that businesses that make stupid decisions should go out of business.
    — I think the ‘stimulus’ bill was a huge waste of my tax dollars. Most economists seem to agree, but its easier to see why by reading the bill. Most of this could NOT have stimulated the economy.
    — I don’t support the health care bill because not because “it didn’t go far enough”, but rather because it:
    a) is 2500 pages and nobody understands it! By definition, I DO NOT WANT politicians voting on things that they don’t understand. I do not understand why this had to be a SINGLE bill. This is a pure democrat issue — they wrote a bill, then jammed it down our throats without possibility to reasonably debate topics and come to reasonable solutions.
    b) as far as I can understand of the bill (I have actually tried to read it), it does not come close to addressing the fundamental problems in US health care. It perhaps weakly addresses access to care, but completely ignores the cost of care which is the whole reason why it was supposedly so urgent to pass something. It DOES NOT lower costs, by anybodies evaluation. It DOES (under very questionable assumptions) lower the deficit, but only does this because the majority of the bill is about how tax laws will change. If page count was an indication, the bill should be called the “redistribution of wealth act”.
    c) It is disingenuous. The whitehouse would like you to believe that it includes ‘no denials for pre-existing coverage’, then also ‘if you like your health care coverage it won’t change’ and ‘most Americans will not see their insurance costs go up. But when you read the bill, and the OMB scoring, the only way they are able to make these statements is by splitting these groups. So if you get insurance though a large corporation then you DO NOT get the fix to a no denials. But if you by your own insurance – expect to see your rates raise 17-30%!

    I see this administration as “politics as usual” (or at its worst) with spending out of control, and absolutely no understanding of how economics works. It therefore doesn’t surprise me that the jobless rate continues at its horrid rate. Bush may have started this, but it certainly does not justify the Democrats actions. Thus, I want to see the lot fired!

    Somehow, the above gets me labeled a racist by the media, which doesn’t help! It just makes me more mad that the media is completely clueless.

  30. Those drive through abortions at wal mart are finally available and here I was planning on getting a pedicure. Shoot. GOP fail fear.

  31. about 1% of the tea party is/are libertarians. the rest are racist.

    there are people who understand the bill, you’re just not one of them. The independent CBO rated it and said it would LOWER costs over time. Your ignorance isn’t equal to their knowledge.

  32. LIMITED GOVT?

    Are you insane? The Tea Party wants to limit abortions – that’s BIG government. They want to tax the poor higher than the rich. They want to GROW government or they wouldn’t be running corrupt bastards like Joe MIller and Christine O Donnell or being led around by Glenn Beck and Sara Palin!

    How do you explain that? Explain how Sara Palin was for SMALL government? LOL. Not what she TELLS you, but what she DID.

    GO!

  33. Actually it is a sexual reference used most commonly in gaming. Halo actually. I would give details but that just isn’t classy. But imagine what you do with a tea bag ;)

  34. Wingnut, no thanks. No way in hell am I voting for Teen Witch. Coons gets my reluctant vote.

    Note: I’d have voted for Castle over Coons. Congratulations, Tea Baggers, on preventing the republicans from taking the senate.

  35. Lol, oh yea, serious article here. And we should all take Bill seriously, yea of course, lol.
    Gotta love it when the feathers of the progressive/socialist/marxist crowd are ruffled. Ah, don’t like this cup of tea? Well, little Billy, beware……………………….we’re brewing a whole pot…………..yee ha, Americans are making a comeback. The age of entitled jerks is coming to an end…………………………Yea, good tea

  36. Yeah, Democrats are the “entitled jerks”- not the corporate money behind the Tea Party. You are in bed with BP and foreign money, buddy! Wake up! As for socialism, you’re so clueless it hurts! If this were socialism, we would own you corporate stooges. Try getting out more and turning off Faux GOP PAC. God save us from people like you. Why don’t you care who is funding you?

  37. Meh…after a couple years of hearing these generalizations it doesn’t really set me off any more. Give me any crowd of even 50 people and I can pick out a racist, a conspiracy theorist, and a religious extremist. The fact that people really believe that this is the general tone of the Tea Party just shows the extent of their study into the situation hasn’t been much deeper than the evening news or a clip on the internet. Anyone who has been to any of these rallys or protests know that the majority of the people there have very real concerns and are very intelligent people…which isn’t entertaining news. So… enjoy your fantasies of big crowds of people comparing USA to Nazi Germany…because while these few loons do exist…the majority of the movement know that B.O. and co. has done nothing but print and spend money…create imaginary jobs with it…and save companies that didn’t deserve it. That’s the reality…if you want to ride that train feel free…but it stops at the polls.

  38. Yep…loser talk. I love how the extreme left guy is talking to the moderates as if he is one of them. This tone of this article is what many Lib minded folks are going to resort to because they know they are going down. The think I LOVE is that he sets himself up. Talking about 2012 and how everyone is going to realize their mistake in 2010. Someone should hold him to it when his 1 term president loses and the GOP gains even more seats.

  39. America has plenty of freedom when it comes to doing anything that might damage your life. When it comes to trying to figure out how to survive outside of the corporate realm, laws are abundant…
