"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

The federal government has no business favoring one social movement over any other. That's the problem with Obama and the establishment GOP.

The federal government has grown too big and should get back to constitutional government. Whether it's the "war on women" or the "war on the unborn" it has no place at the federal level.

My post #3 above, was altered by Rapunzel in her capacity of a moderator. What I wrote has been deleted, and only one sentence left.

Why?

The TEA Party was awesome before the Far Right and their extreme Social Conservatism co-opted the movement.

Because she's no better than JimRob these days?  I'm in another thread asking where Obama ever literally said he wanted to be a dictator, as some far right Texan GOP member said tonight.  I'd LOVE to have that video as a Republican, but instead, all I get are videos where Obama says he'll bypass Congress.  Well, no duh.  We already know he's bypassing congress.  Smart people on the right know this, and don't agree with it at all.  What sells to LIVs are easy soundbites, and nobody can provide me where Obama says literally he wants to be a dictator.

Actions speak much much louder than words and Obama's actions are of a dictator and that is a fact. I doubt any dictator gets up and announces he is one their actions make them one.

Exactly. A modern dictator seizes power with the consent of the people and without posting it on Twitter. Much as our little dictator is doing.

Here is Rand Paul's response. I didn't see it posted anywhere.

That's because nobody claimed Obama said "literally he wants to be a dictator." They said he wants to be a dictator, not that he's admitted it.

But you know this - and whine anyway.

What is your opinion about her deleting most of my post, as a Moderator, because she doesn't personally agree with me?

There was no profanity in my post, I attacked nobody in my post,  my post was not directed to her, but she nevertheless butted in, deleted my own words.

So what do you think?

I think she accidentally clicked on edit instead of quote, but why ask me? I was addressing my comment to someone else.

It was an accident. Rap didn't even realize she did it. No one is picking on you.

It is not about picking on me or anybody. It is about censorship of speech, by a moderator.

She could speak for herself, BTW.

Send her a PM. Of course she can speak for herself. She's not shy about that. However, YOU asked Mountaineer. Both of us told you what happened, but you continue with the topic, and that is taking away from the subject of the thread. Why don't you let it drop?

So why are you asking us to explain whatever she did or didn't do if you want her to speak for herself?

I've been gone all day. Get over yourself. I replied to your post and took out all but the part I replied to so you would know what I was replying to. What I didn't realize was I hit modify instead of quote since I was typing on my tiny little kindle and my fat fingers hit the wrong key.  No one moderated you and if you would have actually looked at the post you would see what I did was obvious to the most casual reader... if I wanted your posts moderated I would hit abuse like you do so liberally and let Myst contact you.

Can Mike Lee save the Tea Party?

He isn't running for anything, so I think speaking from the position of someone who is not running for a higher office I think he is a good spokesman. However, his speech last night he stated we should allow all Americans to aspire to the Middle Class........ I think we should allow all Americans to aspire to be as rich as Buffett or Gates if they have the ability to get there.
