"Patriots" talking loudest ought to put their money where their mouths are IMO. So how do all of you feel about it?

Maybe you should add "Fox News viewers" and "those that didn't vote for Obama" to your list.

Did the recent election really have that much of an effect on you?

What's next? A "Fox employees are enemy combatants" thread?

A country does not own it's citizens. Which is a very good thing considering the many over reaching, failed policies our Federal Government implements. A Patriot believes in the Constitution. Trade with all nations, intangling alliances with none. Just as our Founders wanted.

Issues matter. It's a shame the left has become silent about our illegal occupation in the Middle East since they've been in power. Guess they confused Patriot with Patronize.

Smaller Federal government, lower the debt.

Now you're cooking with gas. Did they know what they were voting for? What did they vote for? Did they get it? What about the alternative? Was there a viable choice? I mean, if you ask me to vote for keeping the 1st amendment or the second amendment, that's not really a choice, is it? It's a trick question and our representational system has become one monotonous trick question.

Our multi layered representational system allows for a whole herd of somethin somethin to hide out under one blanket. It's a handy cover for crooks, but not for honest people who would just assumed look you in the eye and speak their peace. Same thing happens in corporations owning subsidiaries owning a competitor owning the original corporation and before you know it nobody has any clue who they work for anymore.

Within constituency there's a huge disconnect between what people believe they want and how it ought to be paid. Our troops being used as a poker chip to talk trash is like a yap dog hiding behind a doberman. It needs to be shown it's place.

We already have "Patriots" there, the Men & Women fighting
for "OUR" freedom

And I'm pretty sure the "Patriot" line to go would be much
longer then the "liberal" line to defend America as the current
administration has proven that it does not have America's
best interest at heart along with your support !

So Put your money where the "liberal" mouth is, Show
your support for the failed policies your of guy that is in
presidential on the job training at Americas expense
and send a check to the following address

Department of the Treasury
1500 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20220

Thats very odd. All those patriotic costumes strutting around- I have yet to hear a single one of them utter a word about all the far flung places our military has been sent on a blank check they signed off on. So you can claim yourself libertarian and distance yourself from them, or own the tea party yourselves & give up the freebie endorsements that actually own the show, but you really can't have it both ways.

The Tea Partiers would have more fun in Iran or Uganda, or maybe when the Taliban reasserts itself over that disastrous war they will promulgate.

These would be the same far flung places your current liberal administration is failing to remove our troops from.

This is truly one of the most ignorant partisan threads I've seen.

This is stupid. Why don't all liberals "put their money where their mouths are" and give all their money to the government and the poor? A lot of Tea Partiers are too old to be in the military. Furthermore one can support an idea without having to enlist/join up/etc. Most people I know support a free and safe society but they don't all become Police Officers. Most people I know support the idea of suppressing fires and saving property but they don't all become Firefighters, etc. This whole silly argument is stupid. One can support the idea of a free society safe from radical terrorism without having to enlist in the military.
