Wow, lookie lookie, its a Liby party? Pax, Marty, Mich, go, wow!!! You just need your leader, Passer!!! I love it, you throw a "rep implosion" gernade and boom- you all come out like oops- I wanted to say like roaches but I won't so I am not accused of name calling)!!! Are any conservative ideas welcome?

I see a registered republican who votes with the flip of a coin, how intelligent and how NOT hypocritical... Patriot act? The same one Obummer signed/extended? Oh, but lets just blame that one on Bush too... Lose Y's list of freedoms? Oh, the freedom to leave little bitty babies alone and unattended? Who care about their lives and safety- working was worthy!

Hey, not "gay bashing" but cant anyone marry in this country under the same rules as anyone else?

oooooh, ooooh, oooooh, I hope I can play with you guys...

Lose your freedom?

Lose your freedom to marry if you are gay

Lose your freedom to terminate a pregnancy.

Lose your freedom not to be arrested for child abuse if you leave your kids alone to work two jobs (the right opposes paying for it, then chastises people who don't work.)

Lose your freedom to not get bashed around by your husband (the Republicans blocked the Violence against Women Act)

Freedom to keep the Social Security you paid for.

Freedom to keep the Medicare your taxes paid for.

I could go on for pages, but you get the idea.

Freedom to them is the freedom to do any damn thing they want, and the hell with everyone else. That is NOT freedom.

Jailers get the same freedoms as that.

>> "Vote Republican ...So You DON'T Loose Your Freedom"

Teabagger (tm) approved spelling. <<

I'm sorry, but the teabaggers who (censored) behind closed doors already claimed the trademark. I would say more, but I don't want to get in trouble with the sysops. The term you should be using is tea partier.

That would make a neat bumper sticker.

"Vote Republican. We suck less."

Republicans and Democrats both suck. But so far Republicans suck less.

The enemy within is the Gop's biggest problem. The farther they lean to the right the more support they lose. Being the party of the wealthy is a losing agenda. Looking down on and putting down the less fortunate is troubling to those fighting to survive in this economy. An Ike, Nixon or Reagan would not be welcomed in today's Gop because they were compromisers or leaned toward the center.
Mighty sad.
