    ... in a healthier, more prosperous and more just America. Their passion should be respected as well.

    Also, there are more of us than of them, we are the ones the American people voted for in waves - twice - and we have plenty to fight for if push comes to shove...

    ..and there are plenty on the left who are past histrionics and well en route to quiet resolve to protect their values and their vision of a better America - even for those who send our elected leaders death threats.

    Because we're American like that.

    And there are more of us.

    And we are perfectly willing to fight to defend our values, liberties and country too.

    "Love thy neighbor" is easy. It's next-door neighbors that are a challenge. :)

      Tea Baggers hate government and equate govt with taxes.

      The anti-tax dogma has been beat into their heads for decades. Here comes the govt grab your wallet, etc. Little do they realize that that dogma gave tax cuts to the rich and the $$$ did not trickle down it trickled out. See AIG and their overseas investment scams that bankrupted our country.

        In the past their divisions cannibalized each other, because there was no compensation incentive to take enterprise-wide profitability into account.

        It was not a case of left hand not knowing what the right hand was doing. They damn well knew..and competed to do the same, only more ruthlessly.

          Their free market version of the UN, sort of. Using money as leverage to build business and influence abroad.

          Ari Fleisher being Tiger Woods manager should come as no surprise. The Republican free market capital of the world, where no taxes are charged, the playground for the uber wealthy, Tiger Woods Dubai is neocon paradise. No taxes, cheap imported labor, and a playground for the wealthy. It is not a coincidence that the place is going bankrupt, because these conservative ideals of the anti-tax crowd are bankrupt as well.
