"The success of the Tea Party candidate Christine O'Donnell does not bode well for the Republicans, nor for the Democrats (even if they see it differently at the moment), nor for the whole American political machine."

"Obama has underestimated the frustration in the country and the power of the Tea Party movement, which gives the prevailing disillusionment a platform and a voice. It is by far the most vibrant political force in America. Obama's left-of-center coalition, which got young people and intellectuals involved and which appealed to a majority of women, blacks and Latinos, has evaporated into nothing."

"The new right, though, is on the rise. It sets the agenda. America is facing a shift to the right. The Republicans have already marched in this direction of their own accord, regardless how many Tea Party reactionaries get a seat and a voice in Congress in November. The Democrats and the president have been put totally on the defensive. From now on they will only be able to react, rather than act."

Oh boy, now we get to be reactionaries....................:rolleyes:

He could care less. He wants to turn the US into a socialistic type EU economy with goals like wealth distribution, unionization, jobs for life, anti-business, single payer health care, high taxes, limited freedoms, gun control, etc.

What is odd is that he does not like white Europeans, why does he want to install a white European government?

Those my wife and I have met at rallies here in NM are conservatives, some liberals, some well off, middle class, poor, republican, democrat, independent, white, black, red and brown. Every one has one thing in common. America is in trouble and something has got to be done. Taxes were only a part of these rallies. The main focus was America.

What I liked was, no politicians allowed. Just a great bunch of people. Reactionary? I think Patriot fits better, but that's probably what they call a reactionary. Patriot became a dirty word under Clinton, if I recall.

*EDIT* Correction on the above. Politicians could come, but only as citizens. None were invited to speak, if any showed up.
