You just got to love those Tea Party people, Republicans who have become completely unhinged.
With them you not only get to embrace Palin who is still looking at Russia from her front yard but you get O’Donnell who dabbles in witch craft and believes God speaks to her personally and guided her campaign.
Here are a few quotes fro O'Donnell's past:

“During the primary, I heard the audible voice of God. He said, ‘Credibility.’ It wasn’t a thought in my head. I thought it meant I was going to win. But after the primary, I got credibility.” [Wilmington News-Journal, 11/12/06] (Bet Bush had recalled his dialog with God when he read this.)
She blamed school shootings on the lack of prayer in schools. “We took the bible and prayer out of public schools, and now we’re having weekly shootings practically.” [9/15/10 New Statesman,
And in Death panels: Speaking at the Values Voters Summit in September 2010, O’Donnell warned that “unelected panels of bureaucrats [will] decide who gets what life-saving medical care and who is just too old or it’s too expensive to be worth saving.” [9/17/10 CSPAN,
Believes Roe v. Wade needs to be overturned. “We need to turn the power back to the state. And Roe v. Wade, if it’s overturned, will not make abortion illegal. It will simply return the power back to the state.” [Donahue, 8/27/02]
Believes there is ‘just as much, if not more, evidence’ supporting creationism than evolution. “Now too many people are blindly accepting evolution as fact. But when you get down to the hard evidence, it’s merely a theory. … Well, creationism, in essence, is believing that the world began as the Bible in Genesis says, that God created the Earth in six days, six 24-hour periods. And there is just as much, if not more, evidence supporting that.” [9/15/10 New York Magazine.

I agree with yisagirl that Sarah Palin is a joke. I personally don't like her and would never vote for her. She is an absolute waste of time and money. I also do not put any stock in her "endorsements" of any candidate.

I am still undecided on the Tea Party, simply because I don't see or hear of a platform they have decided upon. I know they are anti-government, anti-taxes and anti-Obama but those are just things they are against. I want to know more about what they are for before I make judgement on them.

Now since yisagirl is an obvious Democrat, I understand her dislike for the Republican party. Just as I am a Republican, you will understand my dislike for the Democratic Party. We have agreed to diasgree on that particular topic.

However, I will say this. I am not sure how anyone thinks the Democratic party is what is best for this country.

And please before you drag George Bush into this, I have already made is plain in other articles that I am not a Bush fan. And I think all of you are beating a dead horse dragging him up in every single article, every single argument and every single issue. I could drag old slick Willie up every single time, but he has been out of office for years. It is time to let Clinton and Bush move on.

Try and focus your arguments on the last two years, with a current President and a current Congress.

The Deomcrats have been in control of both the House and the Senate for the last FOUR years, you have had a Democratic President for almost two years.

Our deficit is at an all-time high, we just had a Health Care Law shoved down our throats that no one wants, and the economy is worse now than it has ever been.

How can anyone believe the Democrats understand logic when the very mantra they express is to spend money we don't have and then tax the very people who provide the money they spend?

I don't always believe that the Republicans have the right plan or right idea. But, I do believe what they represent around the ideas of cutting spending, reducing taxes, providing entitlement programs for necessity and not for security, reducing the size of government to be more in line with what I believe and where the country needs to go.

All those things are political. I won't even begin to talk about the moral differences between the two parties.

It is a shame that we can't meet in the middle and find a common ground between the two parties. But, neither one wants to budge and it is doing nothing but put all of us between a rock and a hard place.

I put my trust in God... I will not look to man for anything..... Gov't or otherwise.
September 21, 2010 at 7:48pm
Doolitterd77 no use beating a dead or should I say a "YELLOW" horse in this county, we are still one to two generations away of die hard democratics completly aligned with the party and totally out of touch with reality of what the democratic party represents , if you don't believe me just ask a few of the ole timmers their views on say entittlement programs out of control or better yet what about moral issues ,same sex marriage or gay and lesbian rights , they will surely back up when confronted with their views on issues such as these but still turn right around and vote just as there daddy told them to vote many years ago!
September 21, 2010 at 10:30pm
I just wonder why we have "parties" anyway. Doesn't anyone think for themselves anymore? I believe the US should be strong militarily speaking, and the last two presidents Obama and Bush) have weakened our country so that any Tom Dick and Harry of a country can push out their chests and make us do something for them or just laugh at us. I have God in my life and he makes me strong. The people who run this country (and it ain't us) should call upon Him once in a while before they make a decision or stop following someone else who also doesn't listen to good advise.
September 22, 2010 at 7:02am
These elections are schizophrenic, you vote in a democrat and then a republican and back and forth it goes, of course each party tries to change what the other has done, and you wonder why things are mixed up. We will never have a stable country, as time goes on yes change needs to change but the greedy corporations need to be lime the banks split up into smaller rather than such big powerful greedy rip offs. We will never get better with corporations controlling our presidents etc.
September 22, 2010 at 8:05am
in response to visagirl: I don't think you need to worry so much about corporations as you do Unions and George Soros. Before you laugh about Soros look who is behind, and funding, most of these way left organizations. Also take a look at the money we are sending Mexico so they can drill in the same place our President won't let us.
September 22, 2010 at 8:06am
Pretty small sampling and region for a poll but if yall believe all tea partiers are republicans then 2 out of 3 responders are republicans, really in ole Cannon County. There always has been a strong conservative base in CC, they are not so loud in public but do voice there opinion on election day. I am a registered democrat from a long line of CC democrats. The difference between them and me, i am neither yellow nor dog.
I feel I didnt leave the democrat party, THEY LEFT ME. I wont be part of a party who taxes the rich to insure the needy have cell phones, pain meds and name brand smokes.
I wont join a group who clouts themselves as the religious right and is neither.
And as for the tea party-I ,like most, am racist but I also hate racism.
So in short, I have no party and for once in many many years I do believe I am with the majority.
You old party liners with your gold plated blinders on are on your way out!

George works has his hand in both parties. I am starting to believe the title president is just that nothing more. Hands tied can't get done what he really wants and this goes for all presidents nothing more than puppets. Help us all and for me to say this is i can hardly bare to say.

Excuse me, ,,, i meant george soros n i don't know why it was posted twice.
September 22, 2010 at 1:29pm
not aware of George helping the republicans visagirl but you may be right. can you show me an example?
September 22, 2010 at 2:30pm
If you look at news vine george soros the economic terrorist there are articles there and others about him and the rep party. I understand who he is and he is the shadow contoling the democratic party but he does have his hands in the rep party too which we know he is totaly against
September 22, 2010 at 2:49pm
George soros has investments in the carlyle group and in 2006 he bought 2 million shares in dick cheneys old grounds halliburton yes this man is all over the place
September 23, 2010 at 2:51pm
I see what you are saying about him being all over the place. I guess my point is that he is trying to change America into a socialist country and he is doing it through the progressive movement, which happens to be controlling the Democratic party at the national level. Unfortunately our sate democrats vote in line with Nancy and gang just to stay in favor with the big boys. You will note that we have state republicans guilty of doing the same thing to stay in favor with their powerful counterparts in Washington which is why we now have the Tea Party movement. Let's forget party lines and vote for people who will stand up for what is right.
By the way, look at Stratton Bone, who wrote in the Cannon Courier that he would not vote for a state income tax and then turned right around and did,Twice. Yet the people of Cannon still vote him into office every year.
September 23, 2010 at 5:22pm
I know about mr. Bone but at this point I don't trust any of them. I just could never associate myself with the tea party, theirs alot wrong with them. I think like the other man on here was right,,,,they are un- hinged republicans. I can't do that, but to each his own. And that's what its supposed to be. We can all agree to disagree without insults etc, which I have been guilty of and sorry for it. At this time I am really upset and concerned who is right.

Daily Reader; Palin didn't say she could see Russia from her front yard, that was Tina Fey on Saturday Night Live. I have voted regularly since Gerald Ford ran for election when the SECOND-worst President of the 20th century was elected (read:James Earl Carter). I've always voted in the Democrat primary to have the satisfaction of voting AGAINST Al Gore and then Bart Gordon twice in the same year. I've paid attention and found myself voting for Republican tickets for the last 36 years but in '08 I got EXTREMELY cheesed off at the TN Republicans for not even TRYING to run against supposedly "BlueDog" Gordon (check his voting record, among Conservative representatives from TN he ranked as 7th of 9! Voting conservatively only 33 percent of the time!) . I only went to the polls that year to support Palin, the Electoral College voted for McCain, I voted for Palin. I'll do it again if the opportunity arises. Bush lost me when he wanted to "reform" immigration laws. I want the Marines recalled from the Middle East and redeployed from San Diego, California to Brownsville, Texas. If reform is needed then clean house and rebuild the legal immigration system, AFTER sealing the border, not before. Yes, I'm aware of the Posse Comitatus law, what we need is a federalized DMZ (De-Mexicanized Zone) 200 yards wide and two thousand miles long for the safety of our Nation and citizens. Look it up...enough Americans die from outright murder to car accidents directly due to illegal immigrants each MONTH to fill a 747 airliner. That is not a "statistic" it is an ATROCITY!!!! No, I'm not a knee-jerk racist, ever notice how nicely dressed and well-mannered Latino children are in WalMart? THEY aren't screaming their guts out for attention or toys, are they? NO! They're examples of decorum that I wish ALL parents would notice.
September 24, 2010 at 9:01am
Let keep going the way we are and Mexico will secure the border.

I havent seen stats but I believe a large percentage of Tea Party new recruits are anti-obama democrats.
September 24, 2010 at 9:06am
I don't understand where you get the opinion that the tea party movement is "un- hinged republicans". Unlike the demonstrators for the left there has been no arrest, no vandalism, and when they leave their rallies there are not tons of trash left behind. The two rallies I went to consisted of very respectful people. Now if you get you information and opinion from the lamestream media you will notice that they will focus on one or two idiots that show up and present that as the tea party. On the other hand when they show the liberals demonstrating they will excuse them throwing bricks through windows, calling for the deaths of conservative leaders, and even give people like Bill Ayers time on national media to not only justify his participation in bombing government buildings but to say he wished he had done more. Have you seen the mainstream media paint any of these people with the broad brush of being unhinged people. Look at and compare how the media treats these two groups of people and tell me who you think is unhinged.
September 24, 2010 at 1:10pm
I believe the tea party are disgrunteled republicans and rachel of course they are anti OBAMA,,, the violence well its there protesters all over and securing the borders is not just an OBAMA problem,,,this goes back to several presidents democrat and republican,,,im not sure what disgruntled democrats are calling themselves,,, sure their out there. Why is sara palin with the tea party with glen Beck? I believe she is full republican??????
September 24, 2010 at 1:42pm
Securing the borders is almost like securing vietnam,,, they come out of the ground out of tunnels almost like mice, getting in every book and cranny,, just like the war on drugs which I believe will never be stopped you can try, but they will always defy. Where there's a will there's a way. No win
September 25, 2010 at 9:47am
and I believe many disgruntled democrats who have always been anti-obama and are becoming anti-democrat. and if i am right, these democrats will elect the next republican president whether it pat palson, palin or micky mouse. the voice will not be for something but against something.
September 25, 2010 at 12:07pm
Rachel,,,, mickey mouse,,,you are funny!
