What's outrageous about that statement? It is fundamentally flawed. It's been amended almost thirty times. That means on almost thirty occasions, a large majority of federal and state elected representatives across the country have agreed that it's flawed. Are you saying they were wrong?

Surely you can't be arguing that it was flawed all those times in the past, but now it's perfect. I'm sure you and I would disagree over how it's still flawed, but I bet you could come up with some ways without too much trouble. My list: 1) There's no explicit right to privacy; 2) Candidates who lose the popular vote can become President; 3) Small states (by population) have disproportionate national power because of the Senate; etc. etc. etc.

As for the tea party protestors: I disagree with a lot of what Obama's doing. Debt and deficits are going to be serious long-term problems. But I find it revealing that none of these complainers made a single peep when Bush pissed away a huge budget surplus and created record deficits by introducing tax cuts in wartime. This tells me that the protest organizers, and a large majority of the rank-and-file, are clearly motivated by partisanship above all, with a minority additionally motivated by more, shall we say, visceral feelings toward Obama. Let's just say it's remarkable how many "Diff'rent Strokes", "Family Matters" and "In Living Color" references one sees on the protest signs.

But, when a Republican gives a tax cut, it hasn't traditionally been in parallel with a couple trillion dollar spending bill, as the Obama plan did. So, yeah, thanks for nothing...
I would consider the unwarranted Iraq war with all its subsequent spending and Bush tax cuts as running parallel and pretty much blowing your argument up in smoke. Let us not forget that Bush inherited a budget surplus and squandered it. I say give Obama a chance before throwing tea bags at him.

The tea parties that were hosted yesterday on "tax day" were not sponsored by any one party. They are not "republican" or "democrat", I was at the one in Fresno, CA and there were people from both sides of the political spectrum, choosing to voice their concerns with how big the government has grown on the backs of tax payers hard earned dollars. Much like the Boston Tea Party in reaction to Britain's taxation, which helped start the revolutionary war, these tea parties are American people trying to wake up the rest of America (people like you) who are still stuck in your political ideology while our appointed "leaders" squander our hard earned money. Get your head out of the sand.

And yes it may seem like these tea parties are a "republican" sponsored event, but that is just because the conservative media outlets and voices choose to cover it because fiscal irresponsability has gone far too long, and a reaction from the American voters has been needed.
They were sponsored by none other than FOX News. That is far from fair and balanced. Every one of their shows had a Tea Bag party. What a joke. FOX News and the tea baggers at the very core are Conservative Republicans. The party of Rush Limbaugh. Denying it is utter nonsense.

Here we go again. Iraq had nothing, repeat nothing to do with 9/11. The Republican spin machine would have you believe that Iraq was responsible. Can you say Afghanistan? Tea bags any one?

Sure it has flaws. But when I watched the clip of that interview, I didn't get the impression that he was talking about the same things you are talking about. I think he was commenting on the Constitution as a whole and suggesting that this country needs to adopt his socialist views. I could be wrong, but that's how I saw it.

You didn't hear about it because the liberal media only tells one side of any story. I heard a lot of Republicans complain about Bush. Even the conservative radio talk show hosts complained about him and his policies. I also heard the liberal media complain about Bush's policies. Yet they have nothing negative to say about the present administration. They have never admitted as much as one of his mistakes. They either overlook the flaws, candy coat them, outright lie about them or blame it on the Bush administration. They're so obviously biased it's hard to believe anything they say.

This is simply not true. It had nothing to do with partisanship. The people at the tea parties were a mix of Republicans, Democrats and Independents. It was a combination of races, nationalities and people of all ages. I'm not sure what you mean about the signs.

I'm going to post this again because it seems a lot of this argument is discussed in the write-up I posted on page 2:
