"Why all the hate towards the Tea Party?"

You reap what you sow? That would be my guess.

The Tea Party is supposed to be about no more taxes and less government but they were mysteriously absent during the Bush Administration and came about right after Obama was elected even though Obama had raise no taxes nor expended government. Makes most people wonder why they ignore Bush and why many of them depend on the very government they are supposedly against.

I support the tea party movement and i don't understand all the disrespect people give towards the Tea party?

What is ironic is that most of the hate comes from so called "liberals" who what i thought were for equality?
They're just reaping what they sow.

He has also positioned himself as a "hawk" on defense, calling for increased spending in some areas and for more American intervention abroad - whether in Syria, or in the form of longer, bigger occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Remember, self-described Tea Party activists are a big reason this guy is currently in office.

If that's the level of candidate they are helping elect, then really, what's the point of them?
Now add to that the Senate just voted to give the welfare and tax credits even though they are not citizens yet and you add another layer. They should all get thrown out and come back in under a work visa program like Australia has no job you don't come in period.

The issue is, and someone said it already, the takers out number the workers and quite honestly I am sick and tired of paying for lazy asses.

The Tea Party was co-opted by the extreme right wing of the Republican party, instead of remaining a bipartisan effort to promote responsible spending and a government that was responsible to its people instead of to corporations.

The Tea Party was hijacked early on. They aren't Libertarians. Most of them are the same old George Bush Republicans who realized in 08 that it was finally over, and decided to enact a scorched earth policy of the Government they formerly blindly supported, rather than just getting out of the way...

Also i tend to dislike them not because of what they supposedly stand for Koch brothers who are the biggest wastes of money and life this country has to offer.
Got some proof of that? How are the Koch's different from Soros?
