• Observer,

    There is no question that American citizens are protected the the Constitution. The point I made and will stand by is the Tea Party is not representing the average taxpayer. When Christopher Gadsden designed the "Dont TREAD ON ME" flag it was telling the British that they were about to get bit. This is 2011, not 1775 and the Tea Party is about to learn that there are other American citizens that will show who is going to tread on whom and do not agree with them. The quislings that are holding the country hostage may have to go back to Glenn Beck for a refreasher course.

  • vet43, you might benefit from a brief review of the U.S. Constitution. It states that one of the RIGHTS of all Americans is to "...petition the Government for a redress of grievances." (Amendment I) If feeling that borrowing to spend now with the knowledge that our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren will have to pay for that borrowing is not a grievance, I have never heard one. In addition to a grievance, this reckless borrowing and spending is the height of greed and duplicity.

  • All things being equal, I cannot understand why any group of people would honestly be hoping for a national government default. There are sub-groups that must have a large stake in reaping the wind. If Representitives and Senators are going to be blackmailed by a bunch of Crack(tea)pots they will not have to worry about 2012. They will be a footnote in the history books telling about how being rode out of town on a rail feels. This will light a fire under the moderates to turn off the TV and pick up the torches and pitchforks. We will meet at the castle gates.
