82. I really can't stand teabaggers, I don't buy their whole "movement".....
Edited on Mon Nov-23-09 09:28 PM by Joe the Liberal
I don't even know where to start, they just embody everything that is wrong with this country.

Where were they the past 8 years when Bush/Cheney were wiping their asses with the constitution? Where were they when Bush/Cheney were pillaging the country? Oh that's right they were right on the side lines cheering them (Bush/Cheney) on, they were 100% complicit. These are the same people who claim to support liberty and freedom and yet vote in people who destroy and take away both.

These are the same people who rally against "guvmint run health cur" and yet take full advantage of medicare and other government programs.

These are the same people who claim to be pro-life and support the rights of the unborn but at the same time they are highly against stem cell research which could potentially save millions already here. Not to mention they rally against health care reform which would also save millions of lives and lower the deficit (so much for fiscal conservatives). I guess a fetus is all that matters to them, people already here can drop dead. Also, these pro-life teabaggers are "pro-life" and pro-death penalty, the hypocrisy is vast.

These are the same people who claim to be "fiscally conservative" and time and time again vote for people who bankrupt the country.

These are the same people who actually think republican policies benefit them when history has shown over and over again that they don't, unless you're a millionaire of course.

These are the same people who support war but only if it's someone else who has to go and fight them, enter the chickenhawks.

These are the same people who would turn this country into a theocracy if given the chance and yet espouse liberty and freedom but only for white christian males, gays and minorities need not apply.

I could go on and on but in the end they are just despicable people and some of the biggest hypocrites on earth.
