Goin' To A Party

Sick of hearing all the recycled rhetoric of those on the far-right - tonight, I'll be attending my first Tea Party hosted by our State Representative; Ted Poe.
First check out;
Notice how the woman goes from confident to confused in about two seconds flat.
Notice how she suffers from WIIFM (What's In It For Me) Syndrome.
Notice how she calls for a return to the Constitution.
But notice where the Preamble states;
"...provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and..."
While the Preamble is an introduction and not usually cited in legal matters - doesn't it imply a sense of looking out for the little guy?

When resources are scarce it's always every man for himself and that's why the constitution put in there promote the general welfare. The WIIFM is exactly what people are mad at. I believe she thinks her taxes are somehow weighing more than everyone else's.

When I was in school I had this argument with someone where I said I have been paying taxes since I was 13 so how can they say I am wasting their tax dollars when I have been a taxpayer since Jr High. It's the sound of the ignorant and selfish in front of a microphone and reinforced by the ignorant mob who don't want to hear the truth just another idiot say what's on their mind. It's called a MOB!

Political partys are more like religion than ideology.
Sure some believe it, but most just stick with what their parents gave them. Its easiest to just go to the local flavor like all the neighbors, and most people don't actually study up on what is being taught. They just sit and listen to someone preach and then consider themselves informed, then go through the motions.

Sad on both fronts.
