The Teabaggers Have Principles!

The Tea Party is all about small government. They don't think that the government should be running your life. Here are some of the principles they hold dear (from various Tea Party websites)

All men are created equal.

The proper role of government is to protect equal rights

  As the government is of the people, by the people and for the people, in all other matters we support the personal liberty of the individual

The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.  

etc, etc, etc. . .

Yes, they are all about individual liberty. The government can't tell you how to live your life. You are the ultimate authority on how you live your life.

Well, not you!

Tea Party rally focuses in gay marriage in Iowa

by Associated Press  ::  UPDATED: 15 January 2011 |

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — About 35 people gathered for a Tea Party rally in Council Bluffs calling for a ban on gay marriage and stricter abortion laws in Iowa.

Yeah, the power of government should totally be limited. Limited to deciding who can marry whom and whether or not women have to have babies. But other than that, they're total libertarians!

And assholes. They're also assholes.


This creepy-as-fuck old couple literally worship Sarah Palin.

Where I come from, that would be considered a complete blasphemy. If those creeps had sung this in the church I grew up in, they would have been tossed out on their ears faster than you can say "excommunication."

They got one thing right, though. It'll be a cold day in Hell when Sarah Palin gets to Washington.

P.S. The all-time stupidest line ever written: "Sarah has the wisdom to walk through an open door." 
How is that wisdom? What if the open door is the door to a crackhouse? What if it leads to the lion enclosure? What if it's the door to a dirty movie theater? Hmm? How much wisdom is required to walk through a door?
