Rand Paul & Tea Party

Randal Howard Rand Paul (born January 7, 1963) is the junior United States Senator for Kentucky. A tea party is a formal, ritualized gathering for afternoon tea. 5.0/5

Tea Party went too far. Rand Paul only ran on his father's shoulders. We need a YOOOGE revolution.
Rand Paul is nothing more than Ron Paul 2.0. An Isolationist in Tea Party clothing. Fake.
"I came out of the Tea Party Movement and I hate the people involved." - Rand Paul (somewhat)
Rand Paul of KY for President? Not a fan of Tea Party after the way they tried destroying KY libraries.

Tea Party are a bunch of big dummies !!! Mitch Mcconnell, John Boehner, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Darrell Issa and Kevin McCarthy will never do anything that would benefit the Tea Party dummies. These guys are working for the 1 percent and the Tea Party haven't enough sense to know this !
The quarter-finals of the 2016 race for the White House now pit Jeb Bush against Chris Christie, Paul Ryan, Rick Perry and John Kasich for the establishment wing of the party. And it features Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Scott Walker, Rick Santorum, and Ben Caron battling for the Tea Party nod.…
2014 was difficult for our America. The elections: We saw a bloody election season fought on two fronts: Republicans against Democrats, and Establishment Republicans against Constitutional Conservatives. The Republicans won against the Democrats, but there is increasing evidence that the business-as-usual, crony-capitalist Establishment Republicans like John 5150 McCain, are standing firm against the likes of Tea Party and constitutional conservatives candidates such as Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.
If you think Obama will face a tough time in his last 2 years because of the Republican controlled congress, wait and see how McConnell's seat as the Senate leader will be the toughest job on earth. I want to see how he will deal with Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and other Tea Party members of the senate... Mark my words, it will be tougher than sitting in the oval office...
Senator Rand Paul from Kentucky is a conservative libertarian, just like his father Ron Paul. And he is probably going to run for President. Rand embodies the principles of the Tea Party, and is perhaps the most important voice against big government in the Senate. But he happens to hold socially co…

In Alaska, the torch has been passed. Six years after then-popular Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was plucked by Sen. John Mccain to fill out the 2008 GOP presidential ticket, she has been eclipsed by the Tea Party generation’s Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul in a 2016 presidential preference poll.
I don't see how the GOP can continue to hold the Tea Party. I really want a debate between Rand Paul, Cruz and Christi - crazy
Just received ANOTHER call from the RNC asking for money. Let me make this very clear: I am 64 years old, and I have voted for every single Republican in every single election since I became eligible to vote — including “non-partisan” races where I could determine a party affiliation. But, I am through. Until the GOP leadership starts endorsing true Republican, constitutionally conservative, Reaganesque values in language and actions, I will withhold ALL support from the Republican National Committee, National Republican Congressional Committee, and National Republican Senatorial Committee. And that means calling out Boehner, McConnell, and Cochran for who and what they are — and not giving us the likes of Chris Christie or Jeb Bush as presidential nominees in 2016. And it does mean supporting people like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, and acknowledging the exceedingly valuable contributions of so-called “Tea Party” candidates. Because if the GOP continues to be a bunch of spineless, progressive-ligh ...

American people are sick and tired of more than a decade of war in the Middle East,” thunders the left-wing website Moveon.org. Senator Rand Paul, a Tea Party favorite, 10 years we have supplied the Iraqis and they can’t stand up and do anything to defend their country, and it is all up to us?,” he asked rhetorically at a mid-June hearing of the Foreign Relations The current debate over whether to throw U.S. forces, again, into the sectarian cauldron of Iraq has helped revive an odd, if loose, a...
The House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor lost to Dave Brat in a history making GOP primary! Take note all you *** Republican politicians who take sides with the vile Democrats pushing for some sort of amnesty for Illegal Aliens! This should be a warning to the Republican Party that the people are sick of so-called "Establishment Elitest Republicans." We don't want any more worthless nominees for President from the Republican Party like McCain and Romeny - and of course nobody this next time like Jeb Bush or Paul Ryan - we want a real statesman like Ted Cruz or Rand Paul! We want somebody to stop the Communist agenda of the Democrats. Take that Karl Rove you anti-Tea Party dirt bag!
Bill Connor has been here from the beginning. We were both a part of the initial roots of the Tea Party in South Carolina in 2009, and Bill has continued in his support for the movement. He is a man of his word, and I know Bill will serve alongside Conservative trailblazers like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul,…
Some in the media are claiming that Tea Party ideas are waning because their candidates lost last night. What they are forgetting is that some GOP candidates actually moved further to the right to win their primaries (like Mitch Mcconnell's new alliance with Rand Paul). Should be interesting in November -- but personally worried when GOP moves further to the right or when Dems move too far to the left.
So I'm calling on Matt Bevin to endorse Mitch Mcconnell for the U.S. Senate. Four years ago, when Rand Paul defeated the GOP establishment candidate, McConnell did all he could to get the Tea Party candidate into the Senate. If Tea Partiers are going to run in GOP primaries, they must endorse the winners whether he or she is one of their number or not.
The GOP successfully fended off an attack from the Tea Party, according to USA today, when Mitch Mcconnell (who was endorsed by Rand Paul right after Rand won the straw poll) was able to pull off a victory nomination yesterday. I personally would never vote for anyone related to Ron Paul and I wouldn't vote for Mitch Mccain-amnesty McConnell either.
Rand Paul- came out at the last minute supporting McConnell against the Tea Party candidate. Of course. Tell me again about how the GOP has a few good guys that can overtake the vast herds of backstabbers. Who still believes this nonsense?
So how did US Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell manage to win his GOP primary over a Tea Party challenger? Was it because he had vastly superior financial resources? Or perhaps because he was endorsed by the most high-profile Tea Party leader in Kentucky...and possibly the entire nation...Rand Paul? Or because he hired Jesse Benton, a former Ron and Rand Paul campaign staffer? I'm going to go with the Rand Paul endorsement and the money. :-) Republicans want to take the Senate and people inside the party, including many within the Tea Party, know this means doing whatever it takes to make that happen in 2014. Some conservatives will attack Rand for reaching out to minorities and saying things that might not sound like traditional GOP doctrine. But the truth is that IF we want to regain the White House we need to be smart and expand the Republican vote and once in office work to reverse the disaster that is Obama/Clinton/Reid/Pelosi.
Republican leaders such as John Boehner, John Mccain, Lindsey Graham, Peter King, etc., have made one of their missions in life defeating Republican Tea Party candidates--even if those candidates are incumbents. Since Representative Ron Paul retired, the Tea Party leader in the U.S. House is Justin Amash of Michigan. And working side-by-side Rep. Amash is Congressman Thomas Massie of Kentucky. In the U.S. Senate, the Tea Party is being led by men such as Rand Paul of Kentucky, Mike Lee of Utah, and Ted Cruz of Texas. There are several other Tea Party supporters in both the U.S. House and Senate, of course. It is no accident or coincidence that each of these congressmen and senators have incurred (and continue to incur) the wrath of establishment Republican leaders. Congressman Peter King (R-NY) reserves his harshest rhetoric, not for any Democrat, but for Senator Rand Paul. King said that Rand Paul “disgraced his office,” he “doesn’t deserve to be in the U.S. Senate,” and he “tells absolute li ...
Today's the day of the primary in Kentucky and I have to admit that I'm not all that optimistic for Matt Bevin's chances. That said. . .there is no good ending to today for Rand Paul. If Bevin wins, it reinforces the idea that Rand's endorsement carries very little weight. If McConnell wins, Rand gets hammered with having helped torpedo a Tea Party candidate. Let the good times roll. . .
Your world in 90 seconds. Watch this morning's Eye Opener: US: Is the Tea Party losing influence in the Tri-State? Polls show Republican Mitch Mcconnell with a double-digit lead over Tea Party challenger Matt Bevin heading into today's primary. It's a turnaround from 2010, when Tea Party backed Rand Paul easily beat McConnell endorsed candidate Trey Greyson in the Republican primary.
TEA PARTY ALIVE AND WELL AND INFLUENCING BLACKS... By Star Parker... Follow and Support her at: Americans have suffered more from the improper use of government and abuse of political power than black Americans. What’s all the crowing about regarding North Carolina House Speaker Thom Tillis’ victory in the North Carolina Republican Senate primary this week? I’m talking about the crowing that this is some kind of defeat for the Tea Party. Sure, Greg Brannon was the Tea Party candidate and endorsed by Rand Paul. And, yes, the Republican establishment big names – including, of course, Mr. Establishment, Karl Rove - came out and backed Tillis with endorsements and lots of money. But let’s not get carried away, folks. Tillis is an experienced politician with solid limited government, pro-family, pro-life credentials. And Rand Paul immediately threw his support behind him after the election. If this is a Tea Party defeat, we should have more bad news like this. Furthermore, the obsession with the Tea ...
Establishment favorite Thom Tillis easily defeated the Rand Paul and Mike Huckabee factions of the Republican Party in North Carolina, showing how Tea Party fortunes have changed.
Establishment Republicans scored a victory Tuesday when Thom Tillis, speaker of the North Carolina House, beat obstetrician Greg Bannon for the GOP nomination to challenge Democrat Sen. Kay Hagan. Bannon was backed by Tea Party favorite Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), while Tillis was endorsed by Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush. Clay Aiken of American Idol fame also held a slim lead in a Democratic Congressional primary in the state.

Jeb Bush seems to be the odds on favorite of the Republican Establishment and Rand Paul seems the favorite of the Tea Party. Trouble is brewing and even as we speak, several major Democratic Donors are meeting in Chicago in hopes of finding an alternative to Hillary Clinton. Sure, if you have a sure winner, go out and look for someone else. I swear Democrats have an uncanny ability to *** defeat from the jaws of victory. If they turn on Clinton 2016 won't go very well for Democrats in a race they should easily win. I would love Elizabeth Warren as President, though I think she might be overwhelmed with the position if elected in 2016. She hasn't gotten her feet wet yet in the Senate to prepare for the battle that the Presidency can bring.
.Nope, The Fraud Pauls' fake "left-right paradigm" - So vote Tea Party lunatic Rand Paul! crap is not cutting it.
Why is Rush Limbaugh, Hannity and the other Tea Party heroes afraid to expose Rand Paul as a cheerleader for Iran?
Matt Bevin, constitutional conservative, backed by the Tea Party is challenging Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. Yes, the same Mitch Mcconnell that called Republicans such as Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Rand Paul traitors to the Republican Party. He ordered Republicans not to take a dime in campaign money from Freedom Works or the Senate Conservative Fund. You cannot imagine the positive impact we would see in what will hopefully be a Republican controlled Senate after the mid-terms if Bevin defeats McConnell. McConnell Must Go. He is the most powerful Republican in The Senate. He is a big time RINO. He is coming out with ads moving to the right because of the upcoming election. Don't fall for it. Not again. Please consider supporting Matt Bevin with prayers and finances. McConnell has establishment support and has millions in campaign funds. If he goes, it will turn Washington upside down, or I should say, right side up again. We need McConnell out in the Senate, Boehner out in the House and ...
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., is courting establishment Republicans in his bid to take the Tea Party into the White House.

Dear Patriot, Mississippi is a conservative state. One of the most conservative in the nation. And it deserves to be represented by a conservative senator. That's why the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund has endorsed Chris McDaniel in the race for U.S. Senate in Mississippi. "Moderate" Republican Thad Cochran has been occupying this Senate seat and voting for more and bigger government since 1978! Please make an urgent contribution of $15, $25, $50, or whatever you can afford to help us elect Chris McDaniel. Chris is a true conservative. He's a fighter. He believes in shrinking government, not expanding it. Chris is also a state senator. He knows how to campaign. And he knows how to win by promoting conservative ideals. If elected, he'll join Rand Paul and Ted Cruz and fight Barack Obama's left-wing agenda - not apologize for it. Please make the very best gift you can right away. We are mobilizing Tea Party activists across Mississippi to help elect this great man. However, it won't be easy. The D.C. lobb ...
Warning ..Al Brawley clearly despicable>/..: ‘Where does Rand Paul get off talking about Civil Rights?’ - Tea Party
Rand Paul got an standing ovation at a liberal college. Yeah, can't see that happening with Cruz. Paul is the only credible, cross-over, candidate for 2016. Rand can unite liberals, moderates, independents and democrats. Cruz polarizes people - not a uniter. The only uniting he does is in the Tea Party, which is fringe group.
A FB friend commented that much of her GOP stance is actually at odds with her party's, more or less. She stands on a more progressive social policy stance while buying the fiscal aspect. And will vote on party lines in favor of the GOP, I would reckon. Here's the problem with the 'I'm not quite like my party' stance, IMHO: nonetheless, regardless of how people perceive you, you are willingly supporting an agenda that undermines your own value system. Now how does one reconcile that cognitive dissonance? On the one hand you could vote out of party parameters in favor of the candidate(s) that generally suit your values and beliefs. It's a noble pursuit. I might get there one day. But more often than not I think we see that the GOP isn't really heavily invested in that kind of introspection. Instead what we get is a mish mosh of candidates ranging from Libertarian, to Tea Party, to establishment Red Dogs, to nazi's, to Neo Cons. And while they have vastly different agendas: case in point the isolationism of ...

RICH GUYS UNSURE WHICH REPUBLICAN TO THROW MONEY AT - Max Abelson: "Billionaire Wilbur Ross invited Paul Ryan over for lunch. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Wells Fargo & Co. bankers met with Rand Paul at a fundraiser in Atlanta. Investor Rob Arnott dropped in on Ted Cruz. Wall Street Republicans have begun their White House dance less than halfway into a second Barack Obama term they tried to prevent with record donations to Mitt Romney. As investigations slow Chris Christie, whose backers have included a troop of billionaires, donors are looking for a candidate who can replace the constraints they detest with appreciation they think is due. That’s led to fervor for Jeb Bush, admiration for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and even flirtation with Tea Party senators, according to more than a dozen interviews with fund managers, bankers and investors who open wallets for politics.

Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rand Paul (R-KY) have launched a national debate right here at Breitbart News, one that may mark the first shots of the 2016 Republican presidential primary campaign. The topic is foreign policy, oddly, an issue that is dominating the headlines lately but which remains secondary, at best, to many voters, particularly in the Tea Party Movement from which both men emerged, which focuses on domestic concerns. To some extent, the debate between Cruz and Paul is more about personality and positioning than policy. Paul seems to resent the way in which Cruz placed him at …read more Source: Breitbart

A number of people have asked my opinion of CPAC, and while I may expand on my thoughts in a later article, I'll give them here in brief. I was not surprised to see Rand Paul win the straw poll (again), something the Pauls have always been good at--and although I have my concerns with Rand's uneasy alliance with Mitch "Destroy the Tea Party" McConnell, if I had to pick a top two out of the WashTimes list of potential candidates, it would have been Paul and Cruz, albeit in the reverse order. I was quite amused to see Chris Christie (despite his "front-runner" status and reported standing ovation) garner only 8% of the vote, losing to Dr. Ben Carson and barely squeaking ahead of 2012's second-place finisher, Rick Santorum. As for the conference itself, while there were a lot of good speeches given (with Ted Cruz and Rick Perry being among the best I heard), a careful analysis of what was said from the stage of the Potomac Ballroom reveals a great deal of "red meat" being tossed out by the speakers, with one ...

All right all of the Tea Party Rand Paul worshipers out there. Take note, your beloved Rand Paul is not a supporter of veterans. He will never be our next President. All he will do is take away votes from other Republicans and continue to divide the party. I'll repeat my statement that if the Tea Party would have support Mitt Romney we would not be living through another 4 years of Jimmy Carter, wait a minute, Obama is worse than Carter. Mr. President, stay of Russia's business. You've destroyed our military so we can't do anything about it anyway. Thank you 48% of the country that voted for entitlements.

So after discussion after senseless discussion with my angry Tea Party friends, I've come to the conclusion that their political views are actually uninformed opinions, and don't fit the criterion for a formal argument. It has been my mistake to interpret their short sited amalgamation of Ken Hamm slash Rand Paul dogma as actual premises to their conclusion that somehow lowering the minimum wage will put dinosaurs on the Ark,make climate change disappear, all while adding jobs and money to the economy and not just adding zeros to the bank accounts of those who have bought and paid for their short sited ignorant opinions on Fauxe news.

You have to listen very closely to what people like Charlie Crist say to figure out the core of the propaganda message the left and the media are pushing. Tonight on Colbert he quoted Jeb Bush saying that the leadership of the GOP is "anti-women, anti-minority, anti-immigrant, anti *** couples, anti-environment, anti-education," and he blamed these positions on the Tea Party. Yes, someone in the party is using all these issues to pander to special interests, but it's the leadership more than the Tea Party and the people they are pandering to are not the Tea Party, but linked to the establishment and likely part of the southern Democrat infiltration or the religious right which came into the party leadership in the 90s. Look at all the things they say we are against. Then look at the people the Tea Party and the Liberty Movement in the GOP have elected to high office. Does that list of issues describe Rand Paul or Mike Lee or Thomas Massie or Justin Amash in any way? To anyone even vaguely informed the ...

It's going to be tough for a conservative to win the Presidency in 2016. Because the GOP has to come together and I don't see it happening. The media is still too far Left to get a Tea Party conservative elected. Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, are the two most popular and I like them both, but they are too far Right to get elected President in 2016 because the media hates them both. Chris Christy is is going down like the Hindenburg plus he's too close to being a liberal. Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal would bring in more of the much needed minority vote. The GOP has got to fall in behind one candidate early on because the Liberals candidate is gonna be Hilary Clinton. I'm glad too because we know what she brings to the table, so if they're dumb enough to run her and if we as conservatives can't beat her, we all should pack up and move to Siberia because this country ain't worth saving.

I know our government is in the biggest mess in the history of the US, but with folks like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Allen West, Mike Huckabee, Michelle Bachman, Sarah Palin, Herman Cain, Trey Gowdy, and a couple more I can't think of, we might pull this government around.

Speaker Boehner is solely responsible for: •Continuing the funding of Obamacare and defeating Ted Cruz's efforts to defeat Obama's signature legislation; •Doing Barack Obama's bidding by raising taxes; •Cutting earned pensions for veterans and disabled vets, while protecting his own bloated pension; •Further bankrupting America by raising the debt ceiling without any meaningful concessions; •Single handedly passing signature legislation to massively increase the size, scope, and power of government; •Agreeing to pass Amnesty for those illegal immigrants who have broken our laws; and •Kicking courageous Tea Party congressman off of important, key House committees to remove conservative objections to his liberal policies.

Idc bout the Republican or Tea Party response I'm tryna hear Rand Paul
My predictions on tonights "Response"(s) to the State of the Union: Mike Lee will say something really disturbing and crazy, but he is responding for the Tea Party...so those that support him will be in bed already (Or unable to hear him) Rep. Cathy McMorris, I don't know her. I imagine she'll say something about how hideous Obamacare is, how we need to cut the deficit and how we need to lower taxes. I don't speak Spanish, so I imagine I won't understand what Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen says. Just insert what Rep. Cathy McMorris says here: BUT I'm will to bet Rand Paul will say something Mind Bogglingly incorrect. Something that a 3 minute check on Google would have corrected. He's demonstrated that neither he, nor anyone on his staff has that particular skill set.

Tea Party Express enthusiastically announced Tuesday that Senator Mike Lee of Utah will be offering the 4th Annual Tea Party response to the President Obama’s upcoming State of the Union Address, immediately following the Republican response. Mike Lee, who was elected to the Senate during the Tea Party wave of success in 2010, has proven to be an effective leader within the Senate, offering tangible solutions in the face of Obama’s empty rhetoric. As we enter into another significant election year, we expect Senator Lee’s response will offer a message relevant to the current challenges we face under this Administration and how we can meet those challenges together. This past fall in a speech to the Heritage Foundation, Senator Lee discussed key philosophies he believes will bring about reform and advance the conservative agenda. He encouraged a unifying “Great Debate” among the “grassroots and establishment, conservatives and moderates, libertarians and traditionalists, interventionists and no ...
What happens when you have no leadership. LMAO Oh yeah, they left off the rebuttals of David Letterman, Jay Leno, and a host of other comedians (the legit comedians, not the Washington wanna bees.) Tonight, meanwhile, will be a veritable free for all. There will be one Democrat, the president, enjoying a high-profile stage. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) will deliver the official Republican response. Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), meanwhile, will deliver a Tea Party response. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) will deliver his own response. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) will deliver an official Republican response in Spanish. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) will apparently deliver some kind of pre-buttal before the speech and its rebuttals

On Tuesday President Obama will give the State of the Union, followed by the official GOP response, the Tea Party response, Rand Paul, and Drunk Uncle.
Does Rand Paul speak for the Tea Party on NSA or the Russians?
Why the Tea Party scares liberals Matthew Lamb Let’s face it: the Tea Party has liberals scared. If the Tea Party was dying and ineffective, then liberals wouldn’t spend so much time attacking us. So why are liberals scared of the Tea Party? For four reasons: 1) The Tea Party is young. The Tea Party Senators elected in 2010 and 2012 (Marco Rubio, Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Ron Johnson, Rand Paul and Tim Scott (appointed)) have an average age of 46. It’s one thing to attack the Republicans as old and white when Mitch Mcconnell and John Mccain are the faces of the Tea Party; it’s another when Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Tim Scott are the faces of the Republicans. 2) The Tea Party has made progress on traditionally liberal causes. Liberals were traditionally the advocates of civil liberties as it related to issues like spying and wiretapping. But then Justin Amash, a young Tea Party congressman from Michigan pushed an amendment to the Defense Appropriations bill to limit the power of the National Security Age ...

Six seats. That's it. Republicans need to win just six seats to take control of the U.S. Senate from Democrats and give it to Mitch Mcconnell, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and the Tea Party. Think of the damage McConnell would do as Senate Majority Leader, with Cruz, Paul, and Rubio in ascendance. Or think of what might happen if Republicans control the Senate Judiciary Committee and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, or another Supreme Court justice, steps down.
There is a burgeoning scandal that threatens to sweep up Senator Mitch McConnell, Rand Paul and maybe even, on its periphery, Ron Paul and the Tea Party. So far, it has received little play in nati...
With the issue of voting rights back in the news, Republican Senator and Tea Party favorite, Rand Paul doesn't seem too worried about minorities being impacted
The liberal media loves to report on the so-called "Republican Civil War." They claim this battle is a fight to the political death between supposedly "responsible" GOP leaders and crazed Tea Party fanatics. However, you and I know that is far from the truth. And a new report about who is funding the anti-Tea Party attacks coming from the Republican Party's ruling class proves it. You see, The Republican Main Street Partnership, a "moderate," pro-big business group led by former Ohio Congressman Steven LaTourette, is being funded by left-wing labor unions. The International Union of Operating Engineers and the Laborers' International Union of North America are dumping cash into this Republican establishment group's bank accounts in order to help it bash grassroots freedom lovers like you and me. The ruling classes of both political parties see our grassroots Tea Party rebellion as an existential threat to their hold on power. Whether these lovers of big-government call themselves "Republicans" or "Democra ...
PLEASE KNOW that Ted Cruz and his father are strong supporters, FLUNKYS for ALEC aka the Koch Bros.' It is believed that the Koch Bros' supported Ted Cruz's action in shutting down the govt. until the HEAT almost turned to FLAMES, and they became believers that President Obama was NOT going to budge on the ACA/Obamacare. -Ted Cruz is also a DOMINIONIST/KING in his religion, according to his minister/father Rafael Sr., who wants to overthrow our DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT just as the Koch Brothers, and mirror it as an Oligarchy Govt. -And, as you know, an Oligarchy govt. is one where POWER is in the hands of a FEW; that few being Rush Limbaugh, Rafael Sr. Cruz and son, Rafael "Ted" Cruz; including, ALEC aka the Koch Brothers, the KKK/haters/Tea Party, Fox propaganda News and Friends, Paul Ryan, Rand Paul, governors: (x-governor) Sarah Palin-Alaska, Chris Christie/New Jersey, Scott Brown/Wisconsin, Rick Snyder/Michigan, Rick Scott/Florida, Bobby Jindal/Louisiana, John Kasich/Ohio, Brownback/ KS., LYING-Pat McCr ...
Glenn Beck joined Sean Hannity on his TV program Monday night to discuss the current state of the establishment GOP, which both agreed is hostile to Tea Party conservatives like Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.). The former co-workers also talked about a few...
Prediction: If the GOP nominates Jeb Bush for 2016, they will win. If they nominate Chris Christy, they *might* win. If they nominate Paul Ryan, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, or Ted Cruz, they will lose. And, to take this prediction further: The nominee will be either Jeb Bush or Chris Christy. That's because the GOP usually nominates a candidate they think has a shot at winning, regardless what the Tea Party thinks. That's presuming the Democratic nominee is either Hillary or someone equally popular. If they nominate some loser -- as they are wont to do sometimes -- all bets are off.

Will Senator Rand Paul, misunderstanding the voices of the un-dead, block the appointment of Janet Yellen to head the Federal Reserve Board?No joke.

In 1962, Reagan famously said, “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The party left me.” He did not pretend that the party was something he could fix or something he still belonged to. He packed his bags and went on his way to a better alternative. At the time, that was the Republican Party. The Republican Party’s slogan goes, “Free soil, free labor, free speech, free men.” Republicans held all three branches of the government from 2000 to 2006. What did they do to make you more “free”? Last week I was furious with Fox News for calling Tea Party representatives, such as Rand Paul, RINOS, but then really got to thinking about it. Today as conservatives or libertarians we like to point fingers at the “bad” in the Republican Party and say that they are RINOS (Republicans in Name Only). When you’ve become a minority within the party however, is it time to move on like Reagan, or do you continue to use the name Republican? In 2012, I put my full concentration on getting Barack Obama out o ...
If the Senate Conservatives Fund is "largely responsible" for the election of Rand Paul, then he isn't Tea Party.
Tonights episode of SVU shows why the senate must pass the Military Justice Improvement Act. It has support from Liberals like Kirsten Gillibrand and Tea Party members like Ted Cruz & Rand Paul!! It's being filibustered by Lindsay Graham !
Ideological Warfare "So while Republicans are united against Obamacare, they're fighting each other over ideology. The scorecard looks like this. The moderate Republican leadership features Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, John Mccain, Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan. The Tea Party hard right leadership is headed by Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul and Sarah Palin."- Bill O'Reilly Do you agree or disagree with O'Reilly?
As the Democrats running for re-election are starting to feel the heat for their support of Obamacare, who was it that took a stand trying to stop this train wreck? Nope, not Lindsey Graham, not Orin Hatch, not John Cornyn and certainly not that A-hole John Mccain or any of the other old guard "RINO's" that run on conservative values, but back big government progressive ideas. It was the Tea Party candidates like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Rand Paul. We need more. Find candidates locally who push for smaller government, lower taxes, less regulation and more freedom!
Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and the Tea Party's 2016 problem, by
I watched Senator Orin Hatch interviewed on a TV program and this Rocket Scientist said that Tedd Cruz and Rand Paul caused Cuccinelli to lose the Governor's race in VA to "Super Slick" (who is actually from CA). the facts are ignored . Cuccinelli was 8 to 10 points behind until the Tea Party fav's put their collective feet down. !
As the New York Times detailed over the weekend, and as The Week's Matt Lewis predicted in July, a rivalry is brewing between Tea Party favorites Rand Paul and Ted Cruz. Cruz reportedly trashed Paul as fatally linked to his extremist father, while Paul's aides call Cruz "the chief of the wacko birds...
Tea Party implosion alert! Please Rand, go away. “It’s also what people hate about politics, and it’s why, frankly, members of my family are not too interested in politics, period, or wanting me to do more of this,” he said. “To tell you the truth, people can think what they want, I can go back to being a doctor anytime, if they’re tired of me. I’ll go back to being a doctor, and I’ll be perfectly content.” --Rand Paul
Dems, If you want to blame anyone for the healthcare debacle you should point your angst toward your Democratic politicians and leading network news reporters. They spent years calling out Fox News, conservative Talk Radio, Tea Party and Politicians, i.e. Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul for their warnings about pending doom that was contained in thousand of Health Care pages. Ask yourself, did you ever hear your favorite nightly news commentator question anything they reviewed/read or researched in the healthcare law that might be of concerned. Not until it went in to affect, Oct 1, did they start to challenge Jay Carney, WH Press Secretary about failed promises. How about your area House Rep or Senator. Did they even question what might happen if and when the immigration bill for amnesty passes and what it will do financially to Americans if they add all of these illegals to the healthcare rolls. Did anyone question who or how it would be paid for. Instead, you heard from both media and liberal poli ...
Thank you NYC (up your nose with a rubber hose Bloomberg). Electing a Red Sox fan mayor of NYC (so up yours ghost of George Steinbrenner). Good job NJ for raising the min. wage and indexing it to inflation (hope we can get that smart here in MD.). Yeah you reelected the bully blimp the governor but hey nobody's perfect. Thanks Boston Mass. for electing a union guy mayor. As for Va. (where even Amy's home county of Henrico (aka a hotbed of great social rest) voted for McAuliffe in a landslide) all I can say is thank you Ted Cruz and all the Tea Party s***heads who closed down the government. Couldn't have done without you and your favorability ratings that are now officially lower than Nixon's were on the day he resigned. Please don't give up the crazy GOP. The working folks need it so their candidates can keep winning, we need the entertainment here in DC, and MSNBC needs the ratings. I wonder if Rand Paul will try to plagiarize this.
Rand Paul is no dummy. He knows what plagiarism is. It's the stupid Tea Party he's talking to. He knows that THEY don't know. WATCH! In a year, the definition of plagiarism will change.
On Monday, former Congressman and staunch libertarian Ron Paul (R-TX) campaigned for Virginia Republican Governor candidate Ken Cuccinelli and said Virginias would be giving up on liberty if they voted for Democrat Terry McAuliffe in Tuesday's election and would be "insane" if they voted for so-called libertarian Robert Sarvis, the third-party candidate who may siphon enough votes from Cuccinelli to spoil the election. In the final stretch, both candidates brought in their party's stars to stress the election's importance. McAuliffe campaigned with Obama, Vice President Biden and his longtime friends, the Clintons. Cuccinelli stumped with Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, both Tea Party favorites, and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker – all potential 2016 GOP presidential candidates. Still, despite substantially outraising Mr. Cuccinelli, $34.4 million to $19.7 million, Mr. McAuliffe won by a margin — just over two percentage points — that was smaller than some pre-election polls ...

Without actually naming the MSNBC host who's been all over his plagiarism like a Confederate flag over a Tea Party protest, Sen.

We are Libertarians and Anarcho-Capitalists who are taking a strong stance against the "Tea Party" because we believe Tea Party politicians like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and others are not truly upholding the Libertarian principles.
Charles Blow in The Times reports that Rand Paul said, after the Supreme Court affirmed the Affordable Care Act: "just because a couple people on the Supreme Court declare something to be constitutional, does not make it so." (Tea Party logic). Reminds me of a cartoon many years ago in the New Yorker (yes, the New Yorker) that depicts a man throwing down the newspaper and saying to his wife "What we need is a SUPREME Supreme Court." Ugh
The strategies pursued by Ted Cruz and Rand Paul could help determine whether the Tea Party remains at war with the G.O.P. establishment or is eventually integrated.
Obviously I'd vote for any democrat. That being said do the republicans think there next election campaign voice will come from Chris Christie the Piggy who after the lap band surgery is still a pig!!! Maybe they want to choose Rand Paul yeah he's about as awful as Papa John's pizza's is... two things from Kentucky that *** Marco Rubio isn't bad but are you racist republicans gonna allow yourself to vote for a minority? Well you might bc he's your future Tea Party puppet leader.
It's My Party, and I'll Cry If I Want To The Democratic Party represents Wall Street. The GOP has gone full On John Bircher with the Tea Party, to the extent that a GOP friendly state like Maine has now become part of the progressive "left". The state of Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe, "Liberal"?? In today's political spectrum, yup. Always considered somewhat independent, the voters of Maine replaced Olympia Snowe with capital "I" Independent, Angus King, who is very much a capital "P" Progressive on many issues, such as free trade, the National Security / surveillance state, economic populism, militarism and the Bill of Rights. Moderate Republicans and REAL Democrats have been marginalized by the leadership of both parties. It is obvious that there is far less of a rift between the Tea Party and current GOP leaders like John Boehner, than there is between people like Gene Sperling, Rahm Emanuel and Elizabeth Warren. There is far less hostility among the GOP establishment for people like Rand Paul and M ...
How the Koch Brothers, Ron and Rand Paul, and the Tea Party are using the John Birch Society to destroy America.
Sorry followers, I have been absent lately for many reasons, my wife is running for local school board so I have been helping with her campaign. But as with most everyone in the Liberty and Conservative movement I've been struggling with the political environment. I'm a registered Republican, but a Libertarian at my core, the establishment party is walking away from me both Nationally and at the State level. They cower in fear against the left, they bash and degrade the Liberty caucus of Senate and House representation. They bash and treat the Tea Party as a fringe racist element. They are always wanting to take the safe route, go with the safe candidates. They praise the likes of people like Hilary Clinton and Chris Christie while trying to destroy Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Rand Paul. I'm fed up! Any thoughts?

When I was working in Washington during the Reagan and GHW Bush administrations as an adviser to Congress on bills involving education policy and reform, I was always struck at how genuinely committed senators, congress persons, and their staffs were to the relevance of our laws. "Build a better mouse trap," I would advise them. And by golly, that's what they tried to do. Even Bill Bennett, then Sec. of Education, backed up some legislation of mine and had it placed in Title V. And, believe me, I was hardly what you would call an important player. But it was never a matter of, "What's in this for me?" It was," What can we do to make this bill more relevant, to authentically reflect what's actually going on in the states?" And that's where I came in. What a stark contrast to Congress today, where everyone is out for themselves (no, I don't trust the Tea Party either, but occasionally do find Rand Paul disarming). I doubt that history has witnessed a group of blatant self-promoters such as these peop ...
From drones to Egypt aid, tea party favorite Rand Paul making his mark on foreign policy
I think this is great .. one thing about Rand Paul.. I do not always agree with him .. but he seems to be the real deal. But then those Tea Party types are such out there mavericks.. the real ones anyway .. doing the right thing when no one is looking.
With the exception of the illegals we ALL are American. Have been a conservative democrat early on, I look the Democrats of today and want to turn away. They are consumed with power and want to destroy anything in there way. Pelosi, Reid, Schumer are but a few that should be jailed for treason or thrown out office for incompetence. That looney congressman from Florida that used burning crosses (KKK) in his reelection ads is another WACKO just because he is afraid of the Tea Party. The Tea Party represent Americans with a slightly different viewpoint, smaller government, less govt intrusion and a strong belief in the constitution. Now the republicans except for a hand full like Paul Ryan, Eric Kanter, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul are just playing politically correct games. Bottom line is that NO ONE is paying attention to what WE the American people want and except for a select few they should all resign and go home and we should replace them. Obama Care is a disaster the dems up for reelection year are moving to t ...
Read an article about Rand Paul wanting to make the Fed far more transparent. What irked me was the comments: nearly every comment I saw was in favor of the Fed Reserve and completely critical of Rand. I mean, to the point of life threatening hostility. I suspect this hostility exists presently due to the association with the Tea Party Movement and the negative impact people had of it as the shutdown progressed. But are people truly so clueless about how vile the Fed is? Do they just not care or worse, do they fully support monetary policy that inflates and cripples?
With his impending re-election in “Blue Jersey” evidently assured and his national profile rising, Chris Christie is a formidable presidential hopeful. If not always a voice of reason, the blustering governor usually sounds sane in a Republican Party where conspiracy, paranoia, and extremism reign. His decision to abandon the state’s legal appeal against *** marriage exemplified the canny pragmatism that worries Democratic strategists looking forward to 2016. But for those enjoying the current Civil War within the GOP as a spectator sport, the prospect of a Christie presidential candidacy is promising indeed. Moving toward the center, he is plainly preparing for combat with the herd of politicians – mostly legislators like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Paul Ryan – whose aspirations depend on mobilizing the Tea Party base. And there will be nothing “moderate” about Christie when he takes them apart His surrender on marriage equality was only the latest in a series of efforts by the governor to dis ...

Who said this about Obama and the failed health site? "The president needs to man up, find out who was responsible, and fire them." If you guessed, Sarah Palin, Rand Paul,Ted Cruz or a Tea Party member, you would be wrong. Answer: Rep. Richard Nolan, Democrat of Minnesota. All of those Democrats who were hoping to run on the success of ObamaCare now need to distance themselves from it and from Obama -- as far away as they can get.

Republican Party now fighting among themselves. Tea Party, Rand Paul, and out of touch party members. Divide and conquer. Chaos.
Time for A New Party! On the political front, I believe that caving in on the debt ceiling, shut down, etc, has effectively spelled the death knell for the "Republican" Party, whether they or anyone else realizes it yet. They are more aptly put, the Republicrats. But now in some polls, as many as 70% feel that we need a third party in our government. The Constitution Party or Tea Party, or a combination of the two morphed into the "Top Party or insert better name here _" is a no brainer now. Functionally the Republicans have been assimilated into the Democrat Party anyway. Resistance against the handlers and creators of obama is futile as a member of the now defunct or non-existent Republican Party. Our hopes, if there are any remaining, lie in a perfectly thought out and expertly implemented roll out. And we have don't really have time before 2016, unless all the geniuses get together at night and they all call Ron Paul BOSS! And I don't see why Rand Paul still keep hanging onto the Republican Party any ...
Tea Party tactics in an anecdote: Rand Paul was talking with University of Louisville medical students when one of them tossed him a softball. "The majority of med students here today have a comprehensive exam tomorrow. I'm just wondering if you have any last-minute advice." "Actually, I do," said the ophthalmologist-turned-senator, who stays sharp (and keeps his license) by doing pro bono eye surgeries during congressional breaks. "I never, ever cheated. I don't condone cheating. But I would sometimes spread misinformation. This is a great tactic. Misinformation can be very important." He went on to describe studying for a pathology test with friends in the library. "We spread the rumor that we knew what was on the test and it was definitely going to be all about the liver," he said. "We tried to trick all of our competing students into over-studying for the liver" and not studying much else. "So, that's my advice," he concluded. "Misinformation works." ~ Daily Kos
WILL THESE NUT WACKOS EVER STOP! Once again. the extreme "right" shows its true colors... IF you for one second believe that this is NOT tea party... you have been deluded. Listen carefully to the rants of Sen. Rand Paul, and others like him (need I say Ted Cruz) and you will see that this "party" is NOT Libertarian! They lay in bed with Republican Conservatives. My belief, after the government shutdown, is that the TEA PARTY is a treasonous bunch of political a-holes that are like ticks and leeches upon the Republican Party... and that they will damage moderately conservative ideas and progressive movement for their 18th century beliefs. They should back off before more harm is done on our IMPERFECT form of government.

In the summer of 2013, Tea Party favorites Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio came to a handshake agreement to implement a strategy?
Ted Cruz,. It occurs to me that the left is badly miscalculating in their efforts to (a) make this man a national pariah, and (b) link him to the rest of the GOP as a symbolic albatross. Right now, they are trying to create a toxic Narrative against him (as they did to Romney) to knock him out preemptively. But this man is no pinata; he hits back, twice as hard. Moreover, as ObamaCare collapses, the one David who stood up (literally!) against the Ruling Class Goliath will stand to gain enormous credibility and respect. Meanwhile, his two major conservative rivals for the GOP nomination -- Rand Paul and Marco Rubio -- are damaging themselves with the base by their endorsements of Mitch Mcconnell for re-election, over a Tea Party primary rival. That, among other instances of playing ball with the RINOs and Establishment careerists. I think the base is now hyper-sensitive to any indications that a candidate is becoming seduced by the Dark Side. And they aren't going to be kind to such an individual. I try to ...
I will vote for him in 2016 if he runs. Ted Cruz or Rand Paul and a few others I like too but these 2 have the best traction so far. A Texas-raised, Harvard-educated lawyer with a Cuban father and an American mother, Cruz joined George W. Bush's legal team to argue the 2000 Florida presidential recount. He later served under Bush in the Justice Department and the US Federal Trade commission. In 2003 he returned to Texas and was appointed solicitor general, where he served for five years, arguing many times before the US Supreme Court. In 2011 he ran for Senate with support from the Tea Party -- anti-government, anti-tax, and pro-life and pro-gun conservatives who thrive in politically conservative Texas. He defeated the establishment Republican Party candidate, then steamrolled his Democratic opponent in the 2012 election.
This is a request for Donations, as well as informative. After all, our grassroots movements need help getting the word out and Getting the Tea Party candidates in! Rand Paul just proved his RINO membership again by supporting McConnell! McConnell's 'Kentucky Kickback' a 'Sell-Out' Time for New Leadership! You've gotta wonder - after almost 3 weeks of partisan warfare, did Republicans get anything at all out of the shutdown? Surely, they must've gotten some kind of concession from Obama. There must be a 'silver lining' somewhere. Meet the 'Kentucky Kickback'... Inserted at the very last minute into the GOP sell-out orchestrated by Harry Reid and Mitch Mcconnell is a $3 billion earmark for a Kentucky dam project. Sen. McConnell denies any role in securing what is already being called the 'Kentucky Kickback'. But frankly, his denial flies in the face of years of lobbying by McConnell for millions of dollars in earmarks to fund the Kentucky Olmsted Locks and Dam project. What's worse, everyone knows th ...
Shutdown Autopsy Posted By Stephen Green On October 17, 2013 @ 12:45 pm In economy,Health,Health Care,Internet,Legal,Science & Technology,US News | 16 Comments The Shutdown Fiasco — and it was a fiasco, and solely for the Republicans — began with an impassioned pseudo-filibuster on the Senate floor by Texas Senator Ted Cruz, ably assisted by Rand Paul and Macro Rubio. To the extent that it stirred small-government souls, and it certainly stirred mine, the marathon speech was a rousing success. Cruz’s speech was the kind of thing even your typical, apolitical American could appreciate — a man quite literally standing up for what he believes in. He was Jimmy Stewart with a Texas twang. If only Cruz and the Tea Party Caucus had possessed the wisdom to leave it at that. What happened next was the House Republicans doing what they were elected to do, and that is to defund ObamaCare. The bill went to the Senate, where the Democrat majority did what it was elected to do — protect ObamaCare. That the tw ...
Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio -- Tea Party darlings and aspiring presidential candidates -- all voted to shut down the economy. Hold them accountable -- support Democrats today and tomorrow.
Conservatives, especially those who associate themselves with the Tea Party, are living in a giant, impenetrable bubble of denial. This is not a new phenomena. I saw and spoke to those in the bubble when it was just a small but growing bubble. I was on a conservative website, reading the blog posts of these people, sometimes interjecting my opinions or refuting something someone said. It was hopeless. I might as well have been talking to a yard rake. On election night in 2011, I went to this same website and the same people were saying the same thing. Romney is going to win the election. They were absolutely giddy because they were so sure he would win. They obviously did not believe the polling numbers of anyone, including Fox News. They were ASTOUNDED when Obama won. They could NOT understand how it could be! This is how impenetrable this bubble is. No bad news about themselves gets in. This bubble that encompasses folks like Ted Cruz and the people who support them are serving the democrats deliciously ...
Favorables for Republican Party-24%. Tea Party-21%. Lowest ever in WSJ polling. Q. Do you think that there has been some irreparable harm done to the Republican Party? A. No. -Rand Paul, GOP Presidential Frontrunner for 2016.
This may sound hyperbolic, but when Sen. Rand Paul tells the public we can pay some bills and not others and still be whole, he should be hauled off and thrown in jail for treason. First, what he says is a blatant lie. Default is not a fuzzy word in the world of accounting. This nation has spent two centuries building up a reputation for keeping its word and obligations in finance. Through world wars. Through Civil Wars. Through depressions and recessions. And now in a matter of days we're about to destroy all this because of someone's particular politics? This cannot be allowed. At days end if this Tea Party radical faction puts the President in the position of having to break the law in order to maintain our guarantee of paying our bills, then he must pay the bills. That guarantee is in the Constitution. The law he will be have to 'break' under the extortion of the Tea Party, is an legislative agreement that arose from the issuance of Liberty Bonds in 1917 to help pay for WWI expenses. The Consti ...

Just five days until New Jersey’s special Senate election. Extreme Republican Steve Lonegan’s campaign just released a poll claiming he's within three points of Cory Booker. Lonegan is bringing in Tea Party all-stars: Rand Paul, Rick Perry, and Sarah Palin -- to rally support for a last-minute comeback. GOOD LUCK, Steve! Hah. Lonegan says Ted Cruz is a hero. He's a cheerleader for federal government shutdown; wants to keep it going because he's convinced it will help him win next week. . . On top of that, a right-wing group is now slamming Booker with a reported six-figure attack ad blitz. Billionaires behind Lonegan. . .
RULES FOR RADICALS. By Saul Alinksy...(Dedicated To Lucifer) O *** has done it again. He has gone on the attack against the Tea Party. During his speech about the non-existent negotiations regarding the partial government shutdown. I'm not going to do it until the more extreme parts of the Republican Party stop forcing John Boehner to issue threats about our economy. That's right. You're extreme. Ted Cruz is extreme. Mike Lee is extreme. Rand Paul is extreme. What makes you an extremist in the eyes of "barry hussein soetoro"? You support and stand for the Constitution. How disgusting is that! The would be President of the United States despises those who support the Constitution. And if O *** wants to find an extremist, he need only look in the mirror. Imagine, we have a president who sought out the Marxist professors and who taught the "Rules for Radicals", a book dedicated to Lucifer, tactics of Saul Alinksy! And he wants to call us radicals? WE THE PEOPLE will never stop fighting against the ex ...
The only way we can make this fair is passing a clean spending bill. Anything new attached to it is akin to holding our country hostage. Obama has already reduced the budget to 986 billion, nearly 300 billion LESS than Paul Ryan's proposed budget earlier this year. Anyone who tells you Obama has refused to negotiate is wrong. In fact, he has been TOO nice. Give the other side an inch, and now they want a mile. "Oh, but the federal employees are spoiled..." Take it from me - they aren't. They were paying a good bit for health insurance before the Affordable Care Act went into action a few days ago, and will still have the choice of private or public Health Care that is far from free. Often, federal employees make less than the private sector employee equivalent thanks to the Tea Party's demands in previous budget "negotiations." Rand Paul doesn't want a budget compromise; his phony "didn't know the mike was on" is about as sincere as Mitt Romney's blatant campaign trail lies back in 2012. ( Yay Candy Crow ...
This was sent to me in email by someone who did not include the link, but what it has to say is important and we do have attribution so... highlight:"If the current deadlock extends to October 17, and a congressional refusal to raise the debt ceiling triggers a US default, the impact will be instant and international. What for the Tea Party Caucus will be a gesture about excessive federal spending, will to the rest of the world be an act of sabotage inflicted on the global economic system."

Typically, these were matters of no national consequence, such as the self-styled “meanest sheriff in America,” humiliating jail inmates by making them wear pink underwear, or the strange world of Utah polygamis ...
W The government shutdown is lingering on, and Republicans are refusing to budge. For most of the Tea Party members of the House, it’s still defund Obamacare or bust. Although some members of the GOP are trying to be reasonable, admitting that the political theater is hurting real people and maybe their party needs to consider a compromise, it’s clear that the most extreme faction of the GOP is still running the show…and hogging the camera. Lots of media appearances means lots of opportunities to say really unbelievable things. Here are just 8 stupid statements they’ve managed to make so far: 1. Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann was on the “government shutdowns are great” bandwagon before the shutdown was officially even on, telling reporters: “We’re very excited. It’s exactly what we wanted, and we got it.” 2. North Carolina Rep. Renee Elmers has no problem cutting off other government employees’ pay, but she won’t go without it herself. “The thing of it is, I need my paycheck. Th ...
Reid, Schumer, Durbin, Pelosi are afraid of the Tea Party and Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Jeff Sessions
Who's to blame if the government shutdown? The answer is easy, our elected leaders. ALL OF THEM! No it's not just the Republicans, or the Democrats, or the President. However, we are witnessing a change in DC because of the efforts of people like you. Yes, the Tea Party, or better known as, the American people, have sent leaders to DC to fight for us. You see, both parties, have lost focus on the important things. Somehow we are supposed to believe that the Republicans are causing a shutdown because they pass a bill that funds the government? That they realize we don't have the money for Obamacare and do the responsible thing to delay it for a year? Somehow a shutdown becomes their fault? So the position of the Democrats is, "unless you pass an irresponsible bill that keeps spending like crazy and ignores the problems with Obamacare it's YOUR fault that the government will shutdown." As if they have no share of the responsibility in this. Basically, do what we want, period. We won't negotiate or ...

Oh dear God.  Just.  I can't even.  OK.  It's been awhile since I've posted a foreign policy rant, so hold on; here we go. It's a long article, here's the gist of it: "[The Rand Paul] phenomenon [of forcing new foreign policy thinking in the Republican Party] is largely the party’s own doing, the consequence of the GOP’s hawkish wing having long ago displaced its moderate one. For decades, moderates ruled the party’s foreign policy establishment, from President Dwight Eisenhower, who was unafraid to issue nuclear threats to end the Korean War yet inveighed against the military-industrial complex, to President George H. W. Bush, who called for a “new world order” yet [brilliantly, I might add] resisted the temptation to depose Saddam Hussein in the final days of the Persian Gulf War.     As the GOP turned right on domestic issues, however, the moderates got squeezed out. (Their last elected ally, Senator Richard Lugar, lost his Indiana primary to a Tea Party-backed candidate in 2012.[tear ...

Oh that the good people of South Carolina would raise up...and oust Lindsey Graham. No politician is more worthy of a Tea Party challenge than him. Arizona is the State of Irony. How can you produce stalwarts like Gov. Jan Brewer and Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and keep electing John Mccain? Why didn't you oust him last year when you had a chance with J.D. Hayworth? Heading to next year's primary, word of warning to GOP Elites: STAY OUT OF THE PRIMARIES!!! Don't you love Rand Paul and Ted Cruz? We are a mere 15 months from the California Gubernatorial Election and no Republican has announced to go up against Governor Jerry Brown. He is the flimsiest politician that this nation has ever produced, and yet our side can't beat him. I love Michelle Bachman. What happened to her Presidential Campaign.? It was as if she talked at people instead of to them. Too bad. As a congressman, she is a jewel. Hey Gov. Christie!! Be a Republican. Obama ain't your friend. Know why Dems hated Nixon? Because he fought them w ...
The Republican Party in general is like inviting passive evil into your home. While I respect what McCain endured in the Hanoi Hilton, that doesn't give him a pass when he pisses on the Constitution, insults Tea Party Patriots, tries to push through amnesty for illegals, seeks to aid al-Qaeda rebels in Syria, supported al-Qaeda rebels in Libya, refuses to push for justice for Benghazi and Fast & Furious, stabs true conservatives like Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz in the back, and supports gun control. McCain helped to create the Gang of 14 which did not do a single thing to help solve the on-going problems in the Senate’s rules for the confirmation of judges. McCain had 83 lobbyists that worked in his Presidential campaign. McCain even chided Conservative Justice Alito. Juan McCain supported ultra-liberal Senator Ted Kennedy and President Bush’s failed Immigration Policy. McCain supported the treasonous NDAA. He voted for the extremely unpopular TARP Bailouts. McCain’s openness for rewriting the ...

ALERT: Tea Party, Congressmen say 'Fire' the I.R.S! Fax Congress and tell them to ABOLISH the I.R.S.! American Conservative, The tea party is not dead... Yesterday, the nation once again saw the tea party's strength as thousands were gathered at the national mall in the group's largest assembly since 2010. Their cause: challenge the overgrown, corrupt Internal Revenue Service. The good news is that this rally was much more than symbolic cheer-leading - no; it is a testimony to the fact that our demands and our ideas as grassroots activists are moving the nation's capitol in a real way... especially in regards to the I.R.S. Lawmakers Mike Lee, Mike Kelly, Ted Cruz, and Rand Paul confirmed yesterday that they are taking action on our behalf to end the Tax Authority's systematic, ongoing abuse against the First Amendment. "Anybody want to fire some IRS agents?" said Senator Rand Paul. "Why don't we start with the sixteen-thousand I.R.S. agents that are going to implement Obamacare." (Click the image to watch ...

Glenn returned to D.C. on Wednesday to give his first speech at a Tea Party event at the Capitol since Restoring Honor. Thousands showed up for the Tea Party Patriots ‘Audit the IRS’ event that coincided with the press conference, featuring Reps Bachmann, Gohmert, and King, to block any immigration legislation from passing through the House. The ‘Audit the IRS’ event kicked off at 12pm ET, following the press conference on immigration. Glenn joined conservatives leaders like Dana Loesch, Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Rand Paul, and many others to speak at the event. While most focused on the issue of the IRS audits targeting conservative and religious groups — Glenn took on the fundamental basis of the issue: Civil Rights. With the Black Robed Regiment at his side, Glenn tackled issues of equal rights, faith, and leadership in front of the large Tea Party crowd. He noted that a statue of Fredrick Douglas has just been dedicated just a few steps from where they were standing, inside the Capitol. “A ...

Their relationship got off on an awful footing. In a Republican primary in his home state of Kentucky, Senator Mitch McConnell backed the establishment candidate in 2010, blinkered to the historic Tea Party wave that swept in the political newcomer Rand Paul.
Appearing on Fox News’s Hannity, the Tea Party favorite said, “I want to go from 5 percent of the African-American vote to at least 20-25 percent of the African-American vote in one election.”
Being Pro Life is one thing, the current Tea Party is extremist, the extremism of Medically unnecessary forced ultrasounds, Possible criminalization of Miscarriages, and Fetal Personhood legislation dovetails with the NRA extremism, the drown the Government in a Bathtub Gold Standard Ayn Rand Nietzsche Libertarian economic Darwinism. True the Vote and all of the other Tea Party extremist views. It is driven by the Christian Coalition and a form of Dominion ist Extremist Fundamentalist Evangelical/Charismatic movement straight out of Oliver Cromwell's 17th century.

The fact that these RINOs (yes, I used that term, even for Tea Party favorite Rand Paul) are voting for a bill that Politico calls a bonanza for Democrats
If I were a Republican, I wonder if the strategy would be to try to nail down the Tea Party vote in the least obnoxious way, then go Establishment, or try to run to the Tea Party full stop. I just can't believe there are enough Tea Party people to go hardcore Conservative and win the Presidency anymore. It's gotta be Christie with Rand Paul as his veep or something like that.

The Republican Grand Problem(s): How can Republicans (Rand Paul et al) express outrage over policies which they created and still defend? (McCain et al)? How can Tea Party Republicans claim tyranny vs the IRS when their Tea Party groups actually GOT certified, GOT their laundered Koch $, and used their 'social welfare' status to accomplish their partisan political objective of putting Republican ideologues in office? How can the Republican Party depend on a racist base and dog-whistle campaigning whilst trying to 'transform' its image and repair its brand for 2016? How can the Republicans attack Obama on the legitimate stuff (NSA/Drones/Guantanamo) when they have inoculated him with all the crazy stuff (Re-education camps/taking our guns/Marxist Hitler Monster Mash)? Oh...did I mention that the economy is fundamentally better and the deficit is shrinking at historic rates? It is now becoming apparent that only Republican 'austerity' is keeping the economy from roaring back. Time to dust out the old bumpe ...

Aside from the fact that it was a"joke" my Dad made in defense of OBAMA from the the Tea Party's constant disrespect dished out by the TEA PARTY. I thought it was brilliant. The ANGERED COMEDIAN is also an actor that plays the roll of a BOXING HEAVYWEIGHT. I didn't wanna be publicly rude, so I just wrote "Are you a method actor?"

The political conundrum that has become our government is at best a slow joke. Three selfish men hold up our budget and a move forward. Mark Rubio Ted Cruz and a rep from Utah that will remain nameless. Rand Paul and these three run around the US seats of legislation like clowns looking to cause a scene over anything that can be even remotely laid at the presidents feet. These ideologues of extreme positions are beyond the pale of common sense. One calls for investigation over a none issue and the other screams eliminate the IRS, which of course would be economic suicide, unless some other system is put in place. A place in reality is never a part of their makeup, they see conspiracies in the coffee cup every morning and scream absurdities all day long. In past times these folks would be in straight jackets or at least on psychological drugs like Prozac. Instead the nuts in the Red States called Tea Party send these monsters that are disruptive to the system. We all pay for their constant filibusters and ...

More thoughts on the end of Michelle Bachmann - The GOP & Tea Party are crumbling right before her very eyes so she simply gave up. No one should be surprised. Her own state MN just apporved *** marriage, something she considers an abomination to Jesus. Her and her husband's "Christian *** conversion" clinics are an abject and moral failure. On a larger scale, Paul Ryan's budget proposals are a joke universally panned by everyone not in the Tea Party. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, 2 bullies without a brain between them, will both decide to run for the GOP nod in 2016 and Trump will upstage both of them, thereby making a total mockery of the entire GOP and American political process as they badger and beat each other up in front of the entire country during the primary debate process.

In order to move America in a better, more Progressive direction we must understand what we are up against. For decades the RADICAL RIGHT has poisoned the national debate in this country. Our economic debate today is taking place on the TERMS of the RADICAL RIGHT. Politicians from both sides of the aisle use the language carefully developed by the RADICAL RIGHT over the past few decades. Claire Conner has written an important new book which will be released on July 2. This booked called "Wrapped in the Flag" exposed how the RADICAL RIGHT evolved from the John Birch Society in the 1950s to the Tea Party Movement of today. The language Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Paul Ryan, and others use today is the same toxic rhetoric the RADICAL RIGHT has been pushing for decades. We face a serious enemy in this country. The RADICAL RIGHT and their ideas must be defeated.

Beck: Rand Paul filibuster was ‘the birth’ of the Tea Party via Glen Beck is one stupid *** racist ***
Dear Patriot, Last Wednesday, Senator Rand Paul made history. He spoke on the floor of the Senate for thirteen hours without ceasing, defending our Constitution and demanding that the president abide by it. Eventually, he was joined by Tea Party conservatives like Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Pat Toomey, and others. Even Ron Wyden, a Democrat, joined the call for Constitutional limits on the president's authority. It was inspiring. It was courageous. It was truly a great day for our movement. Please take a moment right now to sign Tea Party Patriots' thank-you note to Rand Paul for his courageous and historic stand for our Constitution. For hours on end, when no other Senator would stand with him, Rand Paul stood alone. While RINO Republicans like Lindsay Graham and John Mccain dined with the president and called Senator Paul's speech "ridiculous," Rand Paul stood alone. Hour after hour, Senator Paul demanded an answer from Barack Obama and his administration to one simple question: does the Constitut ...
The question raised last week by U.S. Sen. Rand Paul's filibuster goes to an illogic in the Libertarian Party's polity. Libertarians vehemently uphold civil liberties when it comes to rights, but they fail to see that their naive notion of economics of totally laissez faire capitalism deprives many of the sustenance needed to have a life where civil liberties even matter. Just for example, having the right to vote, but not having the time (because one must work) nor the means of transportation to get to the polls. There is so much confusion occasioned by a Libertarian like Rand Paul. How can he be identified as a Tea Party member, when the Tea Party loves wars for spoil (Iraq), but the Libertarians want to limit warmongering as much as possible? Or take this position by Rand Paul. He asserts that the owner of a store or restaurant has the liberty not to serve any person of color because he sees the restaurant as an extension of his own personhood. and it is his right and liberty to be prejudiced if he wan ...

Morning Jolt – March 8, 2013 By Jim Geraghty What We Learned from Rand Paul, and Must Continue to Learn Phil Klein on Rand Paul's filibuster, and what it revealed about Obama: A lot of the outpouring of conservative support for Paul's filibuster on Obama's drone policy went beyond the libertarian and anti-interventionist blocs of the movement who were also deeply troubled by Bush era counter-terrorism policies. Even those conservatives who may not agree with all of Paul's views on presidential war powers were supportive if for no other reason than they relished seeing a conservative win a messaging war with Obama. It was impossible to dismiss this as just a right-wing Tea Party attack, because a lot of liberals agree with the substance of Paul's criticism. This filibuster had to get under Obama's skin. As much as anything else, he was elected on a promise to turn the page on the Bush era and conduct the war against terrorism with greater concern for civil liberties. Watching Paul's filibuster last night ...
Rand Paul has managed to pull a Willie Nelson. In songwriter Bruce Robison’s playfully deifying telling, Nelson moved to Austin from Nashville in the 1970s and, “like a miracle,” gave “all the rednecks and hippies from New York City down to Mississippi” something to cheer about, side by side. The list of senators who stepped onto the Senate floor to help the Kentucky Republican keep up his nearly 13-hour, old-timey talking filibuster about President Obama’s drone policy didn’t include senators from New York or Mississippi, but it did encompass Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) among a supporting cast of Tea Party and establishment Republicans. The groups of people cheering him on outside the Senate defied the idea of an America polarized along strict partisan lines.
KNOW YOUR ENEMY! - Julian Bond Tea Party Dominates CPAC 2013 Agenda Featured 06 Mar 2013 Written by Devin Burghart Published in Tea Party News and Analysis For decades, the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) has been a barometer of the different political tendencies inside the right-wing. In the 1980s, Reagan administration officials and Reaganite New Rightists dominated the podium. Pres. Reagan spoke at CPAC in both 1984 and 1988. In the 1990s, culture warriors like Pat Buchanan and the Rev. Pat Robertson joined Republican regulars such as Sens. Bob Dole and Phil Gramm. At this years’ CPAC13, Tea Party leaders and Tea Party-supported politicians will dominate the proceedings. The result is an agenda filled with bigots, conspiracy mongers, and publicity hounds. Consider the inclusion of publicity-seekers such as Gov. Sarah Palin and Donald Trump, and Tea Party standard bearers like Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz. The exclusion of popular GOP figures like Gov. Chris Christie and Go ...

Rand Paul wasted 12hrs and 52mins. of US Senate time asking a foolish question that is covered in the US Constitution and then by the Presidential Oath of Office. And people are heaping praise on him as being a "good" Senator. He either doesn't know anything about his own countries constitution, or it was an outright tactic to use the time of the Senate up so future debates about important issues would be limited by the time of the session remaining. Either way it was a wasted 12hrs. and 52mins. in our countries governing ability. This tactic of using up valuable time has become one of the Tea Party's as well as Republican's favorite ways of legislating. Hard to argue against you in an election when you have done nothing.

Ron Paul, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio & Mike Lee - Many like minded true conservatives, the Tea Party and fellow Libertarians alike are beginning to unite behind these principled shining examples of the new GOP and the future we place before us. Out with Lindsey Graham and McCain.in with the young guns. Great job Rand Paul backing down Team Obama! The old men couldn't ever do that.
With regards to the filibuster, which forced the Administration to publicly admit the truth..they do not have the right to snuff out citizens at home with no due process (duh, but it is government...) we all owe a big thank you to several senators that come out of the *gasp* Tea Party Movement. Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz to name a few. Be careful when you demonize entire groups. You never know when they will be the ones defending your liberty.
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., criticized Paul for posing the question. “I find the question offensive,” he said on the Senate floor this morning. You could take Lindsey Graham's name out and put Obama or Eric Holder in and you would never know the difference there no difference between the establishment republicans and the democrats they both love big government and spending our money. Tea Party Patriots are the ones who stood up and forced Obama's hand. God bless Rand Paul,Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Pat Toomey.
John Mccain and Lindsey Graham should be ashamed of themselves. Both of these RINO's (Republican In Name Only) had the audacity to CRITICIZE Rand Paul for standing up for the Constitution. Last night, while Rand was making a valiant stand along with other Tea Party conservatives, John and Lindsey were having dinner with Obama. I hope and pray that the voters in their respective states wisen up and get these two worthless shills out of Washington.
Krystal Ball, public plastic penile place keeper, said today that, and I paraphrase, that Rand Paul is reverting back to the old Tea Party message from 2010 of fiscal restraint and limits on abortion. And that is a bad thing, so say Krystal.

Filibusters and drones have the ability to create some strange political bedfellows. Tea Party favorite Rand Paul's nearly 13-hour filibuster speech, highlighting his concerns over U.S. drone policy, earned him praise from liberals and libertarians, but chiding from some in the GOP.
There is a lot of variable responses to the Rand Paul Senate filibuster stunt. Some people, like Sarah Palin, approved of his performance, and some people, like Rachel Maddow, admired his spunk, his gumption, but not much else. McCain and Graham did not admire the Paul filibuster. The only thing I admired about Rand Paul's performance was his choice of a place to waste time for 13 hours. The U.S. Senate is the ideal place to do that. I have no interest in Rand Paul's discussion of the administration's drone policy. Senator Paul, like his daddy, lacks ordinary insight into the political business of human beings. He went to college, but he studied eye sight (ophthomology), not insight. I note the WSJ disagreed with the filibuster rant, which is not surprising. The WSJ likes bankers, not Tea Party *** There is no legal ambiguity about terminating an "enemy combatant." There is plenty of ambiguity in determining who they are, and what they're up to. The ability to exercise oversight of govern ...

WASHINGTON, March 07, 2013 A Republican Senator seeking to block President Barack Obama's pick to lead the CIA over concerns about drone strikes on US soil completed a nearly 13-hour speaking filibuster early Thursday. In a remarkable display highlighting the partisan rift in Washington, Rand Paul led the filibuster of John Brennan's appointment after the White House refused to unequivocally rule out drone strikes on US soil. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, tried to bring the blocking tactic to a close, but Paul, a favorite of the Republican Party's conservative Tea Party faction, refused to stop. His oratory held up any other Senate action as he railed against US policy on targeted killings from just before noon (1700 GMT) Wednesday until nearly 1:00 am (0600 GMT) Thursday. During the marathon delaying tactic, Paul said he would be happy to yield the floor "if the president or the attorney general will clarify that they are not going to kill non-combatants in America." The drone issue has ...
Oh, snap! The ACLU is now backing Rand Paul's Senate filibuster. When the Tea Party and ACLU come together, you know Obama's wrong.
Rand Paul is filibustering going on 10 hours right NOW about the Obama Admin saying the President has the right to kill us with drones if necessary & people are passive. It shouldn't take this Tea Party loon to stand up & defend the right to due process/ habeas corpus.but it would appear that we have reached levels of apathy, misdirection, & cult of personality so epic that we are all modern day characters in a Faust like crisis. "Who holds the devil, let him hold him well, He hardly will be caught a second time.”
Rand Paul is making MEGA SENSE on the floor. Take the tea party/OWS/Anons and this is the manifestation. We all value the same principles

I fear for our country she's under seige buy the communist Tea Party. The Tea Party as originally started by Stalin during the oil boom of the old USSR. Stalin was partners with the Koch Brothers father. Their father built his oil factories then had all the builders put to death. Stalin was so impressed with Fredrick Koch's work he gave him some of the factories. That's how the modern day Koch's earned their millions/billions. They help to start and they fund the present day Tea Party which is a throw back from the communist agenda of Stalin . They preach and teach their Tea party groups the old Stalin/Fredrick Koch's hate for all things American. The hate for all things government , the hate for the middle class. elderly, children,women ect. If you listen to Rand Paul and the the things he says,Paul Ryan and his budget, and the rest, they all follow the same talking points and they only want to implement laws that sink our countries economy. They deliberately do things to hurt this country. The do ...
For some reason, Rand Paul is being pushed onto the public political stage as a supposed "leader" of the Tea Party and voice of the Republican Party. Since he admits to being a "Libertarian Republican", doesn't that make him a RINO?

Although Tea Party backed Richard Mourdock lost, establishment-choices George Allen, Josh Mandel, Tommy Thompson and Todd Akin also LOST! And they lost bad. So we've got one notable loss, you've got several. 2004 was 9 years ago, Karl. You're no longer relevant. -- Aaron Alghawi

i was surprised to hear this morning Amy Kremer the head of the US Tea Party and founder explain to the viewing audience that the Tea Party Movement was successful up until the time the movement was usurped by Republicans. She went on to bash Bush spending. Early on, before people like Rand Paul corrupted the movement the TEA Party folks simply represented government watch dogging. The moment the Republicans like Rand Paul, Rick Santorum, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachman entered the scene it turned into little more than a hate group.
Sen. Rand Paul's 'Tea Party' Response to the State of the Union Address ...
When it comes to the Tea Party we need Libertarians like Rand Paul, Thomas Massie, and Justin Amash; not neocons like Marco Rubio, Sarah Palin, and Rick Santorum.
Ted Cruz is taking over from Rand Paul, Paul Ryan, Michelle Bachmann, Joe Walsh, Louie Gohmert, and Steve King (sorry if I've omitted any other heavy lunatics) as the grand dragon of the Tea Party. His comments lately regarding Chuck Hagel have been compared to the days of McCarthyism.
"Sen. Paul could have been the deciding vote to clear the way for Hagel’s confirmation, but instead he opted to vote the other way, and the justification he gave may have been the worst of all. If Paul had some irreconcilable disagreement with Hagel on principle or policy, it would have at least made sense to vote as he did. Instead, Paul endorsed one of the worst, least credible anti-Hagel arguments of all, which is essentially the Ted Cruz argument that Hagel needs to “prove” that he is not in league with foreign governments or sympathetic with terrorists." - Daniel Larison "Since he first won the Kentucky GOP Senate nomination in 2010, Rand Paul has set out to become the Republican’s Republican—not in the sense of being the most loyal party trooper, but in the sense of being its most ideologically committed leader. So when other Republicans propose cutting government, Rand urges deeper cuts. When Marco Rubio gives the party’s official State of the Union rebuttal, Rand gives the Tea Party re ...
Rand Paul Delivers Tea Party Response to State of the Union: Rand Paul has delivered a Tea Party response to the...
While Obama asked for progress like job creation & deficit reduction, Tea Party leader Rand Paul responded with shaming big government. Is his party still relevant?
I just love when Rand Paul referenced Adam Smith and Baron Montesquieu in his Tea Party response to the STOU. As if the average Tea Partier has ever heard of, much less read, either of them.
Video on msnbc.com: The Grio’s Joy Reid and former DNC Communications Director Karen Finney debate whether there is a more perfect metaphor for Republican dysfunction than their two State of the Union rebuttals tonight: Sen. Marco Rubio for the party and Sen. Rand Paul for the Tea Party.
Well, now that I have heard the state of the union, and then Rubio and freakin Rand Pauls, "rebuttal" of Obama's address, it has become crystal clear to me that the GOP and more specifically, the Tea Party, are either completely off the rails, or simply stupid. I have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that someone as ignorant as Rand Paul actually got elected. Rubio's comments were typical GOP talking points and your basic run of the mill bash Obama and the dems spiel that we have all heard over and over for the last 4 years. Rubio was in no way trying to lay out some alternate republican view of how things can be dome, he was merely trying to look tough enough in his dress rehearsal for his REAL agenda which is to be the potential GOP nominee for a Presidential run in 2016. Rand Paul on the other hand, is merely another in the long line of tea party *** who really haven't the slightest idea of government and how its run, and, what its responsibilities and role in American society actually a .. ...
As the Tea Party's 2nd choice, Rand Paul out performed Marco Rubio and his magic gulp.
So the Tea Party had Rand Paul speak for them. I guess those Republicans didn't want someone of Latin descent speaking for them in response to the President. Too bad they can't accept the fact that America is changing. The landscape is different. If the GOP wants to succeed, then they must learn to embrace all people and use them for their votes just like the Democrats have been doing for decades lol.
First I would like to congratulate both Sen. Marco Rubio (R) Florida, and Sen. Rand Paul (R) Kentucky. As a Tea Party supporter myself, I applaud both senators in promoting conservative values and ideas. I look forward to hearing more on their ideas to fixing this country in the coming years. Now to President Obama and his State of the Union Address. President Obama mentioned progress. This country has seen much from a Barack Obama presidency, from record high gas prices, to record high long term unemployment. A deficit that continues to climb with no end is sight. Food prices and home energy has seen a sharp rise in cost as well. We call all agree we have seen much these last four years, but the one thing we have not seen is progress. The President mentioned that our troops should receive their benefits. Whether it be them or their loved ones. I could not agree more, I just wish that this would of been done during his first four years. An unfortunately as too many Veterans know, when Obama speaks it is n ...
As for Rand Paul... Love him or no, let him speak under his own name. NO ONE should be dubbed the "voice" of the Tea Party, because the Tea Party is "supposed" to be a WE THE PEOPLE movement.
Watching the State of the Union tonight? What do you hope to hear -- from the President or from the two GOP responders, Senators Marco Rubio and Rand Paul (for the Tea Party)? What do you dread hearing?

This year, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., will be the Tea Party counterweight to the president's SOTU speech, offering GOP criticism to President Obama's plans. GOP Sen. Marco Rubio is also expected to deliver a GOP response to the SOTU. Do you think they will have valid criticisms of the president's address? What will they say?
I thought Rand Paul was a Libertarian...not a Tea Party guy?
Can anyone explain to me why the Tea Party, which is part of the GOP, gets to have Rand Paul speak tomorrow when Marco Rubio is already speaking for the GOP?
Sen. Rand Paul on the Tea Party view of the President's State of the Union Address and second term agenda.
Sen. Rand Paul to give Tea Party response to the Tuesday.
Rand Paul to deliver Tea Party response to State of the Union - ROFL!! This will be comedy central 4 sure
Rand Paul to give Tea Party response to Obama speech - The Kentucky Republican is considering a 2016 presidential bi...
Since when does the Tea Party get to deliver a response, via their droid GOP persona Rand Paul, to the State of the Union? Are they a party? Then they need to abide by the same rules as other parties. If not, the GOP needs to bring them into the fold or kick them out.
“Arianna Huffington” appeared on the Saturday Night Live skit “Weekend Update” to discuss Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi testimony with Seth Meyers, and she had some choice words for Tea Party buffoon Rand Paul!
these people are out of control.Rand Paul clearly defines the Tea Party extremism and he will never be President!!
So I think I've finally articulated one of the things that bugs me about the modern political climate: there's very little chance for satire on the right. This has a LOT to do with the extremism factor that's prevalent among Republicans, esp. the Tea Party. See, for example, I recently saw a satire article about Rand Paul calling for Obama's resignation because Beyonce lip-synced at his inauguration, including the line "If she lip-synced the National Anthem, how can we be sure he didn't lip-sync his Oath of Office? That would make his Presidency illegitimate. He should resign anyway, just to be sure." (I'm paraphrasing, but that's the gist of it anyway) Now that has all the great elements of satire. It's absurd, it's humorous, but there's a grain of truth to it. If you're reading it, there's a chance you MIGHT think it was legitimate, because it sounds like something that *could* happen. Let's try to apply the same effect to a typical leftist politician. Gun grabbing is the topic of the day, so let' ...
OK Republicans,Tea Party aficionados, Libertarians etc. NOW Try and convince the rest of America that you all STILL think Rand Paul is Sane ! Go Ahead ! We are waiting !
One might rightfully argue that the out of control “chucklehead,” anti-spending, fact-ignoring mentality of some Tea Party rubes in Congress are also responsible for the deaths of Christopher Stevens, Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods, and Sean Smith. Perhaps the time has come for them to confirm their own roles and responsibility for the tragic events and deaths of these four distinguished gentlemen in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. The fact is, the attack on Benghazi is a byproduct of an obstructive and ill-informed congress that’s bent on cutting spending regardless of whom might be adversely affected, and that is “not satisfactory.” And this country "Has their number"..Yesterday, Boehner was sobbing about how the Democrats were trying to destroy the Republican Party. They're doing a fine job of that by themselves, electing *** like Rand Paul.
Rand Paul vs. Chris Christie in a 2016 Republican presidential primary? Paul, a Tea Party favorite, apparently is ready to throw down right now. The Kentucky senator blasted the New Jersey Governor in remarks
We, in the Libertarian Community, need to stop acting like Rand Paul is as good a statesman as Ron Paul. Having watched him for the past two years, I won't even accept that he is as good as Ru Paul. He is to the Liberty Movement what Sarah Palin was to the Tea Party -- a Judas goat, whose function it is to bring us back to the GOP in time for the next election.

OBAMA MAKES HIS GUN CONTROL STATEMENT SURROUNDED BY CHILDREN. LIMBAUGH: Obama uses children as human shields. Rand Paul: Obama is arrogant, has a king complex -- proposals unconstitutional. Rick Perry: "Disgusted" by the political left. DANA MILBANK, Washington Post: Congressman Steve Stockman "crazy." Stockman renews calls for impeachment. PIERS MORGAN has another on-air battle over guns -- this time with a Tea Party executive. STEPHANIE CUTTER says the OBAMA CAMAPAIGN will be in action to assist with gun control. IS IT JUST ME or is Obama resentment spiking? Yes, the American Idol voters put him back in office, but I feel an anti-liberal spirit building even as Obama moves more and more to is progressive roots. What is going to happen? SPORTS HEROES NO MORE? Whom do you trust? Certainly not Lance Armstrong. Wat about Roger Clemens? What about the story of Manti Te'o's girlfriend being dead? Now exposed as a hoax.

Where do you start in trying to put reason and logic into a discussion describing a government that has ceased to make sense; that is the challenge.My God, I ask myself, where are the rational Republicans? Where are the sound minds from the Conservative Right? I see no evidence in the harsh rhetoric making the rounds.Now, Steve Stockman republic rep is saying that he will, among other avenues, seek Impeachment for a president who tries to override the Second Amendment.and others who are talking about a Civil War.and Rand Paul the leader of the malcontents, and another Tea Party member, talking in terms of violent behavior to protect those who would try to take their weapons out of their hands. The word berserk comes to mind here. My guess: It seems that when Reagan released the mentally troubled from institutions, those released could not imagine themselves without a bigger institution or a place of like minds for people who could not control their thoughts.So, Congress became a holding pen for thos ...
One member of the US Senate, Senator Rand Paul, king of the data-mining petition industry and beloved son of “Mr. Constitution” Ron Paul, or maybe Tea Party favorite Sen. Marco Rubio could have taken a stand with American citizens and objected. No, not even a single member of the so-called Tea Party Caucus objected… Republicans control the House and they could have stopped the most fraudulent election in US history without a single Democrat member. But in the end, not a single elector or member of congress had the decency or backbone to stop the Marxist theft of America despite a mountain of evidence right under their noses and prior notice from The North American Law Center.
"Thanks" to Dale 'The Truth' Gillespie. Neocon GOP party hack Marcus Carey of Northern Kentucky apparently doesn't like the ideas of smaller, limited government or the Tea Party. He's taking aim at one of the best smaller government conservatives in our time, Thomas Massie, Fourth District Congressman of Kentucky, and a man cut out of the same cloth as Rand Paul.
It's what GOP in DC want! Boehner cannot control GOP caucus; we are all doomed because of Tea Party bullies, espec Rand Paul!
I think jim DeMint has big plans for the Tea Party. We need more Rubios n Rand Paul types. Out with the old in with the new
