TEXAN LOOKING TO SHORE UP “CONSERVATIVE” SUPPORT IN PALMETTO STATE
|| By FITSNEWS || U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz will attend the 2015 South Carolina Tea Party convention next month, sources close to the event tell FITS.
The Texan – who along with U.S. Sen. Rand Paul is seeking to emerge as a leading alternative to the GOP “establishment” – is the third presumptive “Republican” presidential prospect to commit to the event, which is being held in mid-January in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Also attending? Social conservative Rick Santorum – who ran unsuccessfully for the GOP nomination in 2012 – and neurosurgeon/ author Ben Carson, who is mulling a presidential bid of his own.
We’ll be honest: This website has little use for the “Tea Party” label – just as we have little use for the term “conservative” and absolutely zero use for the “Republican” identifier. These self-applied designations have been debased over the years – stripped of all meaning by dozens of self-serving politicians who used them exclusively for personal promotion, not public (i.e. taxpayer) protection.
Seriously … we hear the terms “Tea Party,” “conservative” and “Republican” and we just roll our eyes. Then we point people to Nikki Haley, South Carolina’s “Tea Party” governor (link HERE). Or to the “conservative” GOP leadership in Washington, D.C. (link HERE).
Show us your votes, candidates … not your labels.
Anyway, while the politicians who pander to this crowd may be (and usually are) completely full of it … Tea Partiers vote. And in many instances, the issues that matter to them are worth discussing – and acting on. For example, we support the Tea Party in its bid to get rid of the notoriously corrupt Internal Revenue Service … an issue which will be front and center at this year’s gathering.
(And yes … Ted Cruz is all over this).
Our hope? That the Tea Party can channel the crazier angels of its nature and develop a more credible identity and coherent message – one that eschews opportunistic politicians and embraces specific policy proposals (like dumping the IRS and the existing tax code in favor of a fairer, flatter consumption-based tax).
The 2015 Tea Party convention in South Carolina will take place from January 17-19 at the Springmaid Beach Resort in Myrtle Beach, S.C. For registration information, click HERE.
Odd that Fits is saying nice things about Ted Cruz,one of the most interventionist Republicans in Congress,who supports ever higher military budgets,in other words, a bona fide babbling stooge for the military/industrial complex,Fits pretends to loathe.
Indeed, While Fits savages Obama for his interventionist moves, his newfound soul mate Cruz castigated the President for not doing enough in these foreign adventures,
What gives Fits?
Ha! Newfound soul mate? If you got that from this story, your relationship radar is ummm … yeah.
My “radar” is fine.
And,oh yes,I “understand” you PERFECTLY.
You are Not a Republican?
He’s not a “Republican,” he’s a Republican… or something like that.
FITS LIKED Obama when a majority of [email protected]$$ voters allegedly “liked” Obama…now that people have figured out what a miserable F*#k Up Obama is…FITS is blowing with them…
But I do Laugh…ignorant Mother-F*#kers like you cannot stand a REAL American, like Cruz, getting any support. You’d Suck a Division of ISIS D!*ks before you’d show any respect for an American…you worthless, piece of liberal S#!*…..I hope we punish you, and the [email protected]$$#$ like you, when we get total control…I’d like to F*#k your life up. Make you want to move to Iran or Russia….like you deserve…
You do some pretty good comedy. This GrandTango character would be funny if Colbert had perfected it already. Adding the clearly uneducated, extra dumb twist is nice, though. What other bits do you have?
Nailed it..cheers to you sir!!
Rand Paul may as well be in that same boat with Ted Cruz, as well as a slew of the other TP idiots. This site will support them so long as they pay lip service to a few “libertarian” ideals. Who cares if they sneak off to stick a knife in the back of everything they claim to want? Who cares if they secretly support all those evil things they said they were against? “He says stuff I like so he must be OK.”
This site has supported Sanford, Haley, and T-Rav in the past, no reason to think it won’t support more conservative/libertarian frauds.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Ted Cruz…HAHAHAHA what Sarah Palin was booked?
You know things are completely dismal, when Jeb Bush is your shinning hope. Are they trying to get Hillary elected?
Might actually be a good strategy for Republicans. With how spineless half the Democrats are, and how in-the-bed the other half are with the Republican party, they could still get 90% or more of what they want and let Democrats take the blame for it.
“Are they trying to get Hillary elected?”
There is nothing they can do to stop that from happening.
What’s the Tea Party? Do you get crumpets,too?
Bring him on in this stare loves batshit crazy idiots.
Looks suicidally depressed.
Who? Wendy Davis?
No… the Carnival Cruz.
At least it isn’t the Chevrolet Cruz.
“At least it isn’t the Chevrolet Cruz.”
He makes me think of the Pinto. (And no – I’m not talking beans.)
This is your brain on drugs….
*This* is your country on Cruz Control.
When Ted Cruz picks Sarah Palin as a running mate, it’s all over for the Dumbocrats. Those two will work circles around any candidates the Dims choose. Can you imagine how great those two will be?
Not even in a porno flick.
Upvote for Ted Cruz/Sarah Palin ticket. I needed a good laugh this morning.
look in the mirror fuckface
Great comeback. How’s third grade going?
Oh, right, a retort on par with yours: OH YEAH? WELL, YOUR MOM!
Gruber…the $6 million dollar man…rich off the medical government industrial complex?
you talking to me?
It would be kind of fun to attend a Tea Party convention . . . so long as no one recognized you.
do they issue bibs?
Bib overalls were traditional for our more-rural conservatives.
I have 4 or 5 pair.
Denim and brown duck.
The TEA Party bunch probably would not like them, you see, they are UNION MADE in the USA!!!!!!!!!!!!
your bibs are probably cheap and way too expensive if they are union made
Cheap and expensive, make up ypur mind.
BTW never cost an AMERICAN his JOB by buying foreign made work clothes, car or truck!
I have a brown-duckcloth one myself.
I’m thinking Max meant ‘baby bibs’…..
i wear bibs like in hee haw…wear size 67 xxxlong
” size 67 xxxlong” —– surprised that they make them that large?
Anyway, I remember (thanks to you) that when I was about 5 years old my Dad took me to the general store on the old highway near my Granddad’s farm in NE Alabama. He bought me the train engineer’s outfit with long pants and the cap. When we got back to Chattanooga I really strutted around the neighborhood — LONG PANTS (wow, I felt like I was a MAN!)
My first pair of Carhardt brown duck bibs came from Rogersville General store in Rogersville, Alabama.
You must of had a pretty affluent life when you were a kid. Being poor and so many of us kids, my Mom used to buy our food in bulk before anyone had ever heard of Sam Walton. In an effort to save money on clothes she used to sew our empty 50 LB flour sacks into underwear for us boys. One particular pair she made me used to get me beat up in gym class whenever I wore them in the locker room. That pair had “Self Rising” printed across the front and “All Purpose” going across the rear, the only good thing about them is I learned to be a first class fighter. HeeHee, JK.
HAW! HAW! — Saving this one for my files, and I’m using it tomorrow when I console my cousin in Alabama (Ohio who?). Any way we got pj’s and outdoor play outfits made from feed and seed sacks from Grandma. My kids (all girls) never wore anything that didn’t have a sales tax attached to it.
You mean the ones that grow our food?
It would be fun to have our country be #1 again too.
and yes if I have to wear a bib to have my country back so be it.
Fat chicks, mopeds, etc.
Tommy Ravenel to attend Beer Bash……
Liberal Brain-Dead Much?
Republican full of utter hatred and blackness and delusion much? hey maybe you and congressman Grimm can evade some taxes then hang out at a David Duke fund raiser with the majority whip..thats gonna win ya the non over 60 and non white vote..much?
Envy me much?…you should…LMAO…
Quit trying, idiot…you’re horrible at it….Hahahaha…
Not sure ‘envy’ means what you think it does. Pity is the word you meant to use. SC education really shows.
still think Obama invaded Afghanistan…lololol..my 5 year old cousin knows better..so in effect and speaking the truth..you are dumber than a 5 yr old. simple facts troll.
Afghanistan may recover from Obama’s ‘good war’.
WE may not recover from Obama’s war on America.
You mean “Bush Wars”? Patroit Act? Wall Street Bailout?
Don’t for get the drug industry, and Chrysler and GM!
The unions fucked this country up. They are communist organizations working with our foreign enemies. Bush should have let them go bankrupt.
Yes, you and GT agree. We know it already, life partners.
I think Flip and GT are already passed out. Hit the bottles too early. Happy New Year!
Like the poster says:
Men in denim built this country!
Men in suits are ruining it!
Why don’t you worry about that shit blog of your own? Fits is writting circles aroud you while you’re trolling here getting him more traffic. I guess Fits is paying you to act a fool?
Mullah RULES !
How about The Democrat Party Senate Leader and hero from the 90’s….
ROBERT KKKKKKKKK Byrd
Dems are a bunch of racist bastards that use young college (like they did in the 60’s) to push their American hating agenda.
I’m glad I live in SC sometimes, if anything, because the people who bring up Robert Byrd are likely the people who kept voting for Strom Thurmond and don’t see the irony in it.
So you are drunk.
Do the SC TeaTards realize this guy is a secret socialist born in a foriegn country?
do you realise the squatter in the WH is born in Kenya
The voters handed him a contract for a 4-year stay, he’s not squatting no matter how hard you want to believe he is. :)
“do you realise the squatter in the WH is born in Kenya”
Do you realize . . . oh WTF – never mind.
Do you realize the one we have now was born to a communist family…look it up.
We don’t ‘look it up’ at the order of someone else – we provide ‘links’ for further reading and enlightenment. You are a “Worker Bee” — well, then ‘work it’..!!
It is true, correct?
Shifty, how do you provide links? I really want to know. I have tried but I always seem to screw it up. Thanks
I’m not proficient but the only links I know how to list are articles (or portions thereof) from Wikipedia and news sites. I just copy and paste from the address bar. I would like to know how to save videos from Youtube but haven’t figured that out. One of the things that makes this site fun is folks posting links as replies to clarify someone’s comment, or show them to be wrong, or make them to look foolish.
As the late Ed McMahon would say….. “YOU ARE CORRECT, SIR!”
Thanks so much Shifty.
Speaking of links.Below is a link to a photoshop piece from Z-TAC. Title is Ted Cruz: Jive talking with Eddie Munster on Gilligan’s Island.
“You are a “Worker Bee” — well, then ‘work it’..!!”
Apparently a Worker Bee that acts like a Queen Bee.
Like Queen Lindsey?
Obama’s grandparents and daddy/mommy were radical marxists. His college professor’s reinforced his family’s teachings of an evil America and Rev.Jerimiah Wright taught Obama how to teach his wife and children to hate America via 20 years in Wright’s pews.
Wright is the ‘godfather’ of those children.
Just think, you are somebody’s grandparent. 40 years from now:
Flip Coscoe III’s granddad was a grumpy old misanthrop who didn’t really believe in anything but the early 21st practice of “trolling”. He wasn’t very good at it. So, he can’t be president.
Cruz’s father was a member of a Batista death squad – and was attending sniper training in Canada – and later was hired to kill LBJ and Jackie Kennedy.
he was?…i would still vote for him…i voted for barry a bunch of times and he took my insurance and would not pay my doctor…
“i would still vote for him”
Convicted felons can vote?
Cool. Then if you support Cruz, you support Obama. I love you guys’ logic ;-)
Derp Derp Derp!
J-just study it out!
gobble gobble deep throat
Whatever floats your boat, Sandi.
I can’t wait
Thanks Cruz. The average IQ in the state of SC will drop 10 points.
There is such a thing as negative IQ point?
It’s already negative. Drain on other states in our nation. But will be a bigger drain.
SC State for sure. Ted + A Thousand. Please !
Cruz is not my cup of tea, so to speak. That said, the notion that an honors graduate from Princeton (and high honors from Harvard Law) is stupid is, well, stupid.
Just my opinion everyone praised the Dems & BHO he said all the right things promised the moon, the stars and unicorns….Went on to increase taxes, increase unemployment, take advantage of “stupid taxpayers” with the fraud program Obamacare, Our country now plays second fiddle, oh and yes over 18T in taxpayer debt, destroyer race and foreign relations destroying our Constitution…..I am willing to support any candidate that respect the Constitution and uphold it because they realize we own the government not the other way around.
Hope you got good seats at the convention.
For the most part, fiscal conservatism is all that “conservatives” have left as we have had our a$$es handed to us on social conservative issues over the years by an ultra minority in tandem with their allies in the powerfully ultra-Leftist judicial branch. Thus, other then a violent civil war over social issues, the only political battle left is for the nation’s “wallet” to be taken away from this corrupt government, which is best manifested in the elimination of the IRS. Further, faithful “conservative” politicians should really consider “burning down the house” by shutting down (and keeping shut down) the Federal government, less those expenditure items actually owed back to the citizens because of pre-payment, such as Social Security and Medicare.
What ‘ultra-Leftist judicial branch’ are you talking about?
The one that includes John Roberts, Samuel Alito,Tony Kennedy Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas.You know all self described “conservative Republicans.”
Republicans never let the fact that their appointees haveBeen the numerical majority on the US Supreme Court for decades interfere with their lies.
Get real, they’re all as “conservative” as the Bushes who appointed them… in other words, not so much. Look, those who obtain law degrees are, for the most part, already going to be conditioned to preserve (and/or grow) the powers of the judicial branch as such growth affords them potential prestige. Thus, the Republicans can appoint whoever they want, if those folks hold a law degree, than their mindset is going to already be toward the Fidel Castro-ish, “rule of law” viewpoint, over the democratic approach afforded through direct/indirect legislation. For instance, in our country right now, if the overwhelming majority of the populace voted for, and had laws passed which demanded green grass that ran counter to the judicial branch’s preference for pink grass, then this nation would have to endure pink grass under the “rule of law”. Yep, a truly broken system.
Typical Republican response.
We are not responsible for what we do.
Paranoia run amuck.
“They” are out to get us!
Who said I was a Republican?… the fact that 150 years ago they rammed down the throats of this nation, a series of illegal constitutional amendments pretty much guarantees that your above assumption is an insult.
Yeah if the Confederates had just win the Civil War!
Not my point at all… however, there’s no doubt whatsoever that the Federal Government used that tragic and stupid event to grow and to change the balance of power between the Federal and State governments (and very much away from what most of the Founding Fathers had sought). After that event, the skids were greased for the Federal Government to grow to the monstrosity that it is today. And sure, a series of illegal Constitution Amendments led to that… so yeah, debate the facts if you’d like, or, just sit around calling me a Confederate (with its implied racist overtones). The choice is really yours.
Corporations are people now. If those 5 justices “aren’t conservative enough” I don’t know what is.
Yeah, wow!!! Do you really think that “designating corporations as people” would make the top ten list for social conservatives? The top 50, or 100? Basically, as a non-conservative you don’t get the right to ascribe the values and priorities of actual conservatives. I mean, it’s kind of the conservative shell game that are the Bushes. For instance, your side screams, “Lord no, we don’t need anymore of them ultra-conservative Bushes” when you and I both know that policy-wise, he belongs more to y’all than to us.
Uh, the Judicial branch of government (seriously, what else could I be talking about?!?!). Without a doubt, that branch of government is positively and utterly dominated by extreme Leftists who rule on laws through the lenses of their own personal biases, That part of our government is positively broke! The only way to start fixing it is by courageous politicians proposing to constitutionally eliminate many of the bogus amendments that have been tacked onto the original constitution… (ironically) many of which were not even legally ratified.
Bet this nonsense is a hit in the Santa Fe area. You must be one lonely troll.
Bet your nonsense is a hit with both the cocksucking/butthumping and STD clinic crowds. You must be one disease-ridden troll.
anal sex and sucking..hello t/flip/sandi/pogo..new name?
You don’t have to change your handle, Taos, to try and insult me. Just use the same screen name.
No, dumb ass. Are referring to the US supreme court, the federal judiciary, the state circuit courts?
Exactly who’s pissed you off?
You do understand the states have branches and the nation does, too, right?
Of course, I’m sure it doesn’t bother you a bit that the US supreme court is overwhelmingly Opus Dei, self-flagellating Catholics who bring their religious beliefs into the court in every decision they make.
Really??… states’ legislatures/judicial branches matter?!?! Since when?!?! Seriously, try to sell that to the 80% of South Carolinians who voted in support of a state constitutional amendment to ban same sex marriages, just to see Federal Court action and then, inaction (the Supreme Court) overturn their democratic will through the Federal Court’s interpretation of a (probable) illegally instituted Amendment – the 14th – that for 150 years, too few politicians/legal scholars/etc. have had the balls to call out its probable illegal initiation, and its utterly communist and Federal Government usurpation language. So yeah, basically, what-the-freak-ever. My God, the US Revolution was actually fought over less undemocratic issues than exist in the US today.
The Commies are coming!!,
Great retort!! I get it… when you’re stupid and are getting your a$$ handed to you in a debate, just be comical! Perhaps that’s why all of this nation’s best comedians are Leftists.
Good point why isn’t there a single funny comedian that identifies as conservative? Plenty of very unfunny ones out there, though.
Jon Levitz does suck
well why isnt there one successful talk show host that is a liberal?…i hate to say it but us liberals dont think…we are all about emotion and the freaky d….
Letterman, O’Brien, Colbert, Kimmel, Carson….Those guys had some success at talk shows.
You’re handing nobody their ass in a debate Republican.
Just a bunch of goofy Right Wing Cornball BULLSHIT raging on about anything and everything.
It’s all Communist!
You think this corny Garbage is original with you?The Birchers and others have been Spouting this lunacy for over FIFTY damn years.
Handing someone their ass in a debate?
Boo!Youre a Communist!
Wow, you still said nothing of value, It’s pretty obvious that you know very little about American history and politics because you seem unable to counter any of my historical or political arguments about our broken Republic in general, and our broken judiciary specifically. If you’ve got any ability to counter my arguments, then do it point-by-point (in other words, shut me up with facts), otherwise, I’m going to simply ignore someone who uses MSNBC derived ad hominem methods.
Thank god the rambling old ‘conservative’ white man is quickly becoming a minority. Lashing out on comments sections is the dying wheeze of this sad dying breed of troll. Nobody around them in real life gives any attention to their silly ‘political’ rants or views, so off to FitsNews they go to spew the silly shit sloshing around in the demented shriveling minds.
Really? So you’re basically responding to my sad/worthless comment on a sad/worthless political blog because you’re not sad/worthless…. hahaha… OK?!?! Anyway, it seems like you and your ilk are the kings of hatred as witnessed in your above spewing of genocide support (“dying breed”) and racism (“old conservative white man”). Thus, as a Christian I’ll just say a prayer for you knowing that you and your peeps are actually imploding more than mine over gangland violence, HIV, Ebola, etc., etc.,… all things that will keep folks such as myself from ever completely losing too much ground to peeps like you, population wise.
And finally,the last refuge of the scoundrel as this Constitutional Schloar(in his own mind) announces that he be a
Lordy Mercy ,you Republicans are really something!
I mean really, what was I thinking? After all, my stating that I’m a PROUD CHRISTIAN breaks our nation’s new PC, diversity, anti-hate codes (bwahahahaha!!!). Bur seriously, just informing him/her/it where my prayers will be directed toward on his behalf (as he fights his hatred of his fellow man)… but anyway, thanks for the heavily cliched anti-Christian diatribe that one hears all the time in all the cool and groovy circles: the atheist/agnostic crowd, democrats, the university sect, major media, etc., etc.
And again, I’m not a Republican… see above…
I love it! Of course you are christian. Shouldn’t you be worrying about the afterlife? Leave the here and now to those of us who don’t believe in fairy tales. You’re an elderly man, you know better.
Odds are, I’m younger than you… just deal with the fact that you really aren’t on the right side of history and that people such as myself aren’t going to just go poof and disappear. Regardless of how many Leftist judges you put in place to advance your twisted views, your side will not simply coast to victory without a political or other-type fight. But more than that, your diversity coalition is apparently coming apart at the seams and the coming political bloodbath is going to be enjoyable. Case in point, your most solid voting bloc – black folks – is about to get into a political war with your white union crowd over Ferguson, etc. Oh, and the “cousins” of that solid voting bloc – again, blacks – happen to have the worst human rights conditions for gays on the African continent. So sure, cast stones at my future while I also laugh at yours.
Actually, you are disappearing. In twenty years whites will be a minority in the USA. Really though, it’s the same old white bigotry disappearing that’s really transforming the country. I can see why racists are scared, don’t worry not everybody treats minorities as bad as the white man has.
No no no, everything they don’t like is unconstitutional.
Boycott Oreo over rainbow colored creme advertisement? Totally acceptable.
Boycott all of Burger King over one restaurant selling a “Proud Whopper”? Totally acceptable.
Boycott JC Penney over having Ellen DeGeneres in some of their ads? Totally acceptable.
Boycott Chick-Fil-A over comments their founder said? ERMAGHERD, DAT IZ OPRESHUN OF HIS FURST AMENDMUNT RITE, RELIGUS PERSECUSHUN!! THE LEFTIST LIBTURD COMMIES ARE AT IT AGAIN!
So glad he is going to make it…
I hope the best governor in America, Nikki Haley introduces him as our next President.
Springmaid Pier brings back so many memories. Ever been on the pier when ‘spots’ are running in the fall?
As one of the ONLY white anglers brave enough to take a left-handed 10 year-old to fish when the spots are just jumping on your hooks (while he entangled numerous lines while trying to cast), I can honestly say that pollster Frank Luntz should do a ‘panel’ on race relations from that pier.
Everybody gets along just fine.
So much dumb in such a little package.
Its pretty much concentrated dumb. Like the densest, darkest heaviest kind of dumb. Our little Flip the troll.
so our little troll has changed his name back to guest? lolol the boys got balls the size of grains of sand.
Anyone who thinks this guy has good ideas or half a brain is a total moron……or a tea party dope supporter. Sadly I am sure tea party dope politicians like Haley and Loftis will kiss his butt while he is in town.
He’s a Dominionist and a theocrat.
But, the MSM is too terrified of being called ‘liberal media elites’ to ask him how his extremist religion informs his extremist ideology and if, in fact, they are one and the same.
“He’s(Ted Cruz) a Dominionist and a theocrat.”
His father has strange views, but, without resorting to conspiracy theories or hidden agendas, can you show that Ted shares this viewpoint.
Here you go: http://www.amplifyingglass.com/net-neutrality-is-against-gods-will/
Apparently the “Will of God” is whatever Comcast cuts a check for.
Good try. But that Website is fake. Slopes caught them here.
Fair enough, was the first result I found, didn’t really check.
“Slopes caught them here.
Careful now – watch out for those slippery Snopes . . .
SNOPES not SLOPES? auto correct!! When I catch an error in a comment, I rush with my android phone. Trying to navigate 3 websites and new comments popping up….
“Trying to navigate 3 websites and new comments popping up….”
Then you are doing lots better than me, BT. I do good to navigate one website – on my good days!
was just ribbing you – Happy New Year!
We know you’re a clost racist. Just like Jeremy Clarkson’s slope slip up.
Republicans love them some legislating morality and forcing religion down other peoples’ throats.
Their ire for Sharia is really just because they don’t like the competition.
Does that mean gay marriage=pedophilia?
I got a bad impression of Cruz from the start and haven’t given him a chance since. Sounds pretty good here.
Odd that you would have ever had a bad impression of Cruz.
Based on the views you’ve expressed here,he seems to be the candidate best suited to receive your support
I don’t want a candidate that is a red flag rally call for the opposition.
He makes sense here.
Our hope? That the Tea Party can channel the crazier angels of its nature and develop a more credible identity and coherent message – one that eschews opportunistic politicians and embraces specific policy proposals (like dumping the IRS and the existing tax code in favor of a fairer, flatter consumption-based tax).
I used to hope that the LSD distributors would get their shit together, too.
Mmmm … do you mean that you would favor an increase in “consumption-based“ taxes (AKA Sales Taxes)?
Look, bailing out the bail-outers is never going to fix what is so clearly broken.
I don’t care how many g’ment employees are fired, terminated, laid off, demoted and otherwise let go, as long as the fed and state g’ments are held accountable for the past and current grand theft of the Citizens’ Rights and property.
This website has little use for the “Tea Party” label – just as we have little use for the term “conservative” and absolutely zero use for the “Republican” identifier.
Yeah, but you still don’t have the guts to say: “FITSNEWS, a Libertarian Blog, sponsored by Koch Industries.”
But when duties and responsibilities of the Citizenry are considered, that label is good enough to be a catch all for many disgruntled voters.
DERP DERP DERP DERP KOCHTOPPPPUSSSSS !!!!111!!!!1!!! DERP DERP DERP
ALG/Cato/Reason all have ties back to the Kochs, and this site loves it some ALG/Cato/Reason. I’d also say that this site leans more towards Kock brand “libertarianism” than it does actual libertarianism, but ehh, whatevs.
I am beginning to believe you liberals mention ‘Kochs’ so much is because it rhymes with your favorite anal experience, ‘Cocks’.
It’s pronounced “coke.”
South Carolina ..the state of the Teabaggers.
Really? How do you explain Newt Gingrich?
“… like dumping the IRS and the existing tax code in favor of a fairer, flatter consumption-based tax …”
Make that: “… like dumping the IRS and the existing tax code in favor of a fairer, flatter tax …”
I can’t believe that any wild-eyed Tea Party crazy would champion, without tongue in cheek, any new tax structure that would so obviously disparage the middle classes in favor of the rich. A “consumption-based” tax is another word for a sales tax, easily the worst and most “unfair” outcome for “the poor” and the middle class.
How about we just dump the criminally greedy IRS and see what the Washington taxsuckers can come up with that does not punish and make enemies of the largest segment of voters.
Agree, throwing off one yoke just to put on another is stupid. Why not just live within the means of revenues generated by tariffs on imports which if memory serves me, is the original way the government was funded.
Add to the tariffs and other tithes and tributes, the SEC and fed reserve’s revenues from bank system lending and the t. department pot is still not significantly offended.
They’re stupid and don’t realize it will only benefit the rich.
It sounds good. It sounds fair. The middle and working classes in the flat tax bunch simply believe what they are told by the people who will benefit from it. I call that Plantation Massa Syndrome.
Just look at Kansas – cut all the business taxes to the point the EMPLOYERS pay NOTHING and their employees take the entire hit.
THAT’S what being business friendly in Kochland means.
A Constitutionally acceptable flat income tax 10% with a $250,000.00 deduction for everyone and every business would do it. And that would be very close to revenue neutral to the fed and states’ g’ment(s).
BUT First and Foremost, the entire IRS would have to be eliminated.
(This is almost exactly what the income tax was supposed to be back when the Woodrow Wilson Income Tax was first floated and then passed. … but then the “progressive” Fascists got greedy.)
“… EMPLOYERS pay NOTHING and their employees take the entire hit. …”
And that’s the long game plan, fur sure.
And the Koch Bros. are not all: How about O’Bummer’s friends at GE, Arthur-M-Danials, Goldman Sacks of It, Citi-Groupen, Bankrupt Of America, General Motors, Exxon-Mobile … and that “progressive” Fascist Hate Monger: George Soros, … and several thousand more.
BTW: Did anyone notice that George Soros made another $Billion Buck$ of the Greek election spread this last month = shorting the Greek-bailout-inflated Euro against the US Dollar, then a day later reversing those shorts. … And the IMF made good on those losses using our U.S. fed reserve Gold …
A Harvard and Princeton alumnus and DC influence-peddling lawyer trying to dupe the TP rubes. It’ll work. That’s why they’re rubes. Has he donned the cowboy boots yet?
Well..Obama F*#ked up the whole country, not just the rubes, for EIGHT years at least…and he’s a F*#king god to you and the Satan-worshiping, America-Hating [email protected][email protected]*ds like you…He could never EARN a degree, but he had it handed to him from the Ivy League based on race-privilege and his propensity for Communism…
I must of touched a nerve? The truth hurts.
NO. He/she/it’s been drunk for days.
because in your racist ignorant mind anyone of color who has attended an ivy league school, which obviously you cant even spell ivy, that anyone of color who has attended such a school ONLY got in due to affirmative action, as obviously he took the spot you so deserve huh big troll?
Why won’t he make his records public like all other presidents???….
There is a STRONG suspicion Obama got into college in a foreign-born student program…and it’s obvious he was handed position and degrees once he got in…..
As a liberal, all you have to do is apply and meet the quota requirement…..and they hand you passes throughout life, that others must EARN…
You know I’m telling the truth…But liberals live a life of myths…because it pays off for you…
That’s because Tango has a white entitlement complex.
You’re a friggin’ @$$wipe – you’re lucky Barack is President and I’m not. I’d have our ass in G-mo so fast your redneck uneducated balls would shrivel up and die. But you wanted the Panamanian born McCain and his dipshit running mate Sarah Failin’ to win. Barry has more intelligence in his turds than you have in your entire family.
You’d have to jail me and millions of others, Adolph…
On Nov. 4, the American people kicked you and Obama so F*#king hard, we broke your face…you ignorant, America-hating F*#k….
Get used to it…when the new House is seated, We gone F*#k you [email protected]$$…Obama is an idiot, and most voters have figured out the media lied to them…It sucks to be you, moron…
You’re the evil librul dictator GrandTango describes from his wet dreams about Obama. Ever think about running for president?
OMG there’s a Tea Party Convention in SC? Please take pictures and films. Exactly where is this convention being held and how much will it cost. Will Haley, Curtis Loftis
be in attendance? Seriously take many pictures. If possible air it on some TV Channel so everyone can watch. So many questions, so little time.
Call the NSA, and ask your god in chief…I’m sure he has surveillance…Maybe the IRS can give you more info. since they are trying to prosecute people for not being mind-controlled by the Radical Leftwing, Obama-Hitler-branch of the Democrat Party…
If the Tea Party does not scare the F*#k out of you [email protected]$$#$, especially after Nov. 4…you are more F*#king stupid than even I thought…
They know who you are..and unlike the lukewarm-pop cultures like FITS…they Slap the S#!* out of you imbeciles and laugh while you spit your teeth out…
That’s why you gotta love em….(: …They KNOW you….and make no apologies for calling you what you are….LMAO…
Shouldn’t you be out on a ledge somewhere.
Hes the village idiot, the local troll, the piece of shit you just stepped on..dont bother trying to communicate with him, its like trying to get your farts to figure out algebra.
My farts probably have a better chance at figuring out algebra than GrandTango though.
Thanks, I needed that!
“Shouldn’t you be out on a ledge somewhere.”
I am definitely stealing that one!
Number 1 Ted Cruz is not qualified to be President. He is a Canadian. Born and raised in Canada. Let’s see his birth certificate. Second Cruz is a very intelligent man, but does not understand what it means to govern. Third, I bet Privates Voyage or Carolina Opry or another venue draws a bigger crowd then dumbass teabag Joe Dugan and his tea party convention does when Cruz speaks. The funny thing about Dugan is that he has lived off of the government tit his entire life. Now he wants to cut government waste. Start by cutting his retirement.
It is not clear if Cruz is eligible to run for President.
Oh, the irony! It’s fun watching these dummies just twist and reverse their positions to fit current events. This gonna be fun!
barry was not qualified to be president and we have never seen his birth cerificate…he was born in kenya and is using his brother that lives in a tents birth certificate and i wish i had not voted for him as his wife says he smells real bad and his girls wont get into bed with him…that may be a good thing…
Another Lie by one of the biggest lying Republicans here(and there are so many,that is saying something)
Actually, a birth certificate was produced, twice. Neither was an original microfiche. A microfiche was finally produced, but it is still being debated because the names were not correct.
He attended college as a foreign exchange student!
Do you know when he used the bathroom too?
Republicans…a laugh a minute!
It’s really sad to watch, isn’t it? I get it, they don’t like Obama, they think he’s a terrible president. If that were all it’d be fine, but no, they can’t just let go of the stupid conspiracy theories, the hoaxes, the general dumbassery from the far right wingnuts, pundits, conspiracy theorists, etc.
If I were in their shoes I’d be telling people to stop with this crap because it makes us look bad. Instead, 99% of them are still calling for more Benghazi investigations, because there’s still a few bones left to beat on the dead horse.
But they’re not racist!
It’s a hoax, bro.
Come think of it. I’ve never seen Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton or Shrubs birth certificates. What does it mean!?!
The real travesty in all of this is that the Republican party never actually contested the issue. Isn’t that strange? I guess the Republican party had a hand in making sure a Kenyan became president! They wanted to lose the election! IT’S AN INSIDE JOB I TELLS YA! TIN FOIL HATS! KOOL AID! ALEX JONES!
(Or maybe the Republican party never batted an eyebrow because even they understand this “Kenyan connection” is horse shit.)
Awesome. Haley will promise Jeb the SC win, and Cruz will snatch it away from the Establishment. That will force Jeb to say all Hispanics need to be deported, even his wife, and then – – – – seven months later we’ll celebrate the electoral college landslide for Madam Secretary – President-elect Hillary Clinton. Thank you Ted.
You know what’s funny? The GOP has this big midterm – and afterwards – Obama’s approval rating goes up 10%.
And economc stewardship.
Yeah that plus ,what was the FIRST thing you Republicans did after getting elected?
Passed some measure to benefit the big banks.I bet all those Middle class folks who believed your garbage thought that was real important.
Poor old banks.
Don’t worry, the rope Dodd Frank used to (minimally) corral the banks will be recycled as nooses for the taxpayers when the banks ultimately fuck up again.
I just got off healthcare.gov and found a great policy. Covers everything for $430 a month, and I’m entitled to a $280 subsidy so it will only cost me $150 a month. And I checked the providers already and I can keep my doctor. I take back everything I said about Obama – he’s a life saver. I have a pre-existing skin cancer condition, and now I’m insured. This is the best New Years ever. I just hope those dumbass Republicans don’t mess with it and try and take it away. I was so wrong for so long, but now I see the light.
What they say about imitation and flattery…is not always true…I certainly understand why your’re trying…but it ain’t working…
You cannot take a [email protected]$$, like you, and try to emulate someone of my superior intellect. You are common and dull. Accept that…You could NEVER be me, no matter how hard you try…You’re probably not even as smart as FITS…and he’s pretty average…
Classic! Too funny! Man, you might have something with this GrandTango character. You should make some YouTube videos where you just record GrandTango saying the stuff you type here. I have no idea what you do for visualization. Is this just a comment section thing or do you plan on taking GrandTango (hilarious name, by the way) into stage performance?
Do you feel pertinent now?… (: ….
Seriously. Is this something you do out live? You should pursue the YouTube video thing. I think you’d get a lot of hits. You’d reach way more people. You’ve got a good bit.
Visuals: Guy blowing smoke into a mirror …
GT – you becoming bi-polar? Why are you posting conflicting posts. But hey – good on ya for getting an affordable health insurance policy.
What they say about imitation and flattery…
Imitation is flattery when others want to be like you.
Imitation is simply parody when others just want to make fun of you. :)
What about when people on a website to talk about politics, are obsessed w/ a poster, to the point they can talk nothing about pertinent subjects, because they are so pre-occupied with me…because I slap the S#!t out of you, and laugh while you’re crying…
I own you – and FITS – B!t*h…now STFU and go back to trying to figure out how I kicked you in the @$$ this time…[email protected]$$….LMAO….
I agree. Rocky/Deo and your personal stalker ‘grandtandosuglydog’ have destroyed Fits as a forum of ideas and opinion.
They are so enraged with rational and coherent comments it drives them insane.
Try peddling ideas that are worth more than dog turds and maybe they’ll be taken more seriously?
My ideas are taken seriously.
Since Obama was elected in 2008, the Republicans have picked up 11 senate seats, 75 house seats, 9 governorships and over 1500 seats in state legislatures.
My ideas on policy are fine. This forum is just filled with American haters that believe this country is evil. That is okay. I enjoy debating marxists and socialists like yourself. You appear to have some honor.
Flip…Reality is not something they do well with….
Yeah: I have to laugh. I come on here to talk politics…and these thin-skinned robots of the left, look like total idiots if you ever challenge the myths and lies under which they live.
I love to discuss the reality of the political world…and they are so P!$$#d that anyone would challenge the fables they are fed and they go wild off the track….
I bet if one of them would host a site just to attack me (if I participated) it would be more successful than FITS. It would not have to be propped up by Liberal-Tarian candidates, and the SCDP…as FITS is…
Reality – juxtaposed to liberal fantasy – is very compelling…and except for me, not many of them ever experience it…
“It would not have to be propped up by Liberal-Tarian candidates, and the SCDP…as FITS is…”
When do you find time to work on your blog? You seem to always be here.
A small sampling of your rational and coherent talk..and this is just a few from this story alone…this is why you two are fucking jokes..as far as predictions go..hows President Romney,Perry, Palin, bachmann, Gingrich working out..all of whom you predicted your fucking troll..hows the blog by the way? anyway some samples of your contribution to society, none of these have been edited and ll on this story alone:
F*#king hard, we broke your face…you ignorant, America-hating F*#k….
Get used to it…when the new House is seated, We gone F*#k you [email protected]$$…I slap the S#!t out of you, and laugh while you’re crying…
they Slap the S#!* out of you imbeciles and laugh while you spit your teeth out…
brain-dead F*#ks that Ravenel and Ervin would shock the world…and the Ignorant [email protected][email protected]*ds – like you – bought into it…
When you saw reality, I bet you S#!* all over yourselves.
I own you – and FITS – B!t*h…now STFU and go back to trying to figure out how I kicked you in the @$$ this time…[email protected]$$….LMAO….
basically you two really truly need some help. I cant even imagine what you are like in real life. Seriously you are broken goods boy.
… the television cameras, even with their floodlights in the noon-day sun are barely able to pierce the din into the basement lair where experts say the shooter spent the last years of his life, subsisting on pallets of dried beans and MREs… all dated previous to the year 2000…
The debris mounds stood in mute testament to the stark existence of this horrible little man… the pathways led through the dank, fetid piles to a fold-out couch covered in trash punctuated with dirty socks, lime rinds, car parts and semi-solid chunks of years-old Wall Street Journals and Lynden La Rouche flyers… to a make-shift “kitchen” with hot plate – a decaying rat in a trap atop it.. to a grotesque “hutch” – a cavern seemingly dug out of the trash, from which emanates the dull blue glow of a crt.. and a greasy keyboard… the entire row of number keys across the top, unreadable as the shift key, being worn almost through…
and there, atop the keyboard – a small scrap of paper piteously scrawled with his last message…. “these thin-skinned robots of the left, look like total idiots…”
“Rocky/Deo and your personal stalker ‘grandtandosuglydog’ have destroyed Fits as a forum of ideas and opinion.”
Sounds like it’s time for you to do some blogging over at SCPD.
I dare say watching you explode in rage is far more entertaining than a good share of the content on FITS.
And I do talk a fair amount of politics, but mostly with other commenters who can at least fathom politics above the elementary school level. Let me know when you think you’ve reached that point.
You have demonstrated ZERO expertise in the discussion of politics unless one considers your support of the marxist occupying the wHite House, perverted marriage and socialized medicine/death panels/partial-birth abortion/infanticide as proof of rational thinking.
Like Boz and vicupstate, you couldn’t pick a winning political candidate if I gave you the final vote results on election night.
I love it when you slap the $#!t out of Damned Tango.. slapping him in the face is what he deserves.
Please, make some YouTube videos! This GrandTango stuff is gold. This is the new Colbert. Only really nasty and super dumb. People crack up when I show them your work. Make some videos!!! Hell, you only have money to gain.
Sure, if you will you make some videos of the F*#king idiots you work with at the do-nothing, hand-out government agency, reviewing the election results on Nov. 5?
After FITS told you brain-dead F*#ks that Ravenel and Ervin would shock the world…and the Ignorant [email protected][email protected]*ds – like you – bought into it…
When you saw reality, I bet you S#!* all over yourselves…especially since I predicted it EXACTLY like it happened…Now that’s good video….LMAO…
I’d make a video, but it wouldn’t be anywhere near as entertaining as a GrandTango clip. You’ve got this character down. Rarely, do I laugh out loud while reading. Thanks for that!
kind of like you and tim tebow
Mama why are you so hard on Tim Tebow? I’m a Charter Member of the Agnostic/Deists for Tim Tebow Fan Club.
Owner of this site called you a socialist.
Defined in life as Castro and Chavez has to make you proud.
You’re still droning on about that?
If you’re going to use sock puppets, you could at least try to pretend you’re not the same person, Sandi. You’ve got some serious work to do before you’ll ever be a successful troll.
I miss Sandi.
Same hand, different sock.
“You cannot take a [email protected]$$, like you, and try to emulate someone of my superior intellect.”
bless your heart
better check you new payments costs after the first … and you should make sure that congress is going to “let you keep” bummercare. (The word is that that is the first big budget cut coming this February = bye, bye to that “keep your doctor” too.)
WASHINGTON — Just as millions of people are gaining insurance throughMedicaid, the program is poised to make deep cuts in payments to many doctors, prompting some physicians and consumer advocates to warn that the reductions could make it more difficult for Medicaid patients to obtain care.
Obamacare is finished Rocky and you are a real pussy for hijacking s/n’s on Fits.
says the troll who changes his name to guest to comment on his own troll remarks.
Ted Cruz is a Canadian. Where’s your birth certificate Ted? You just want to bring your Canadian Socialism over here!
Obama is a Kenyan communist with a fake birth certificate. Obama brought his illegal, welfare sucking aunt and drunk driving uncle over here.
Good morning SEC fans!!!!
Don’t worry, I’m sure ducks have a taste for buckeyes.
Ask the ducks about the Rose Bowl in 2009. Buckeyes will score 60 points in that game. They should have scored 50 last night, settling on 2 field goals inside the 5.
The leading proponent of the fair tax in the Republican Party is Mike Huckabee. Not conservative enough but a candidate that can bring the various factions of my party to at least a level of understanding that will result in victory in Nov. 16. Anything else is unacceptable.
Ted Cruz by all means! Sarah Palin? You bet! Michelle? Oh, yeah! Bring in all the screwballs! Everyone’s looking forward to a good laugh whenever the Tea Chumps get together. and this state loves to be the butt of crude jokes.
If Hillary (I ain’t in no way tire) keeps crashing and burning, your replacement is Elizabeth Warren…You were already seen as the Biggest [email protected]$$#$ in history for burdening us w/ Obama…
And Hillary and Elizabeth Warren is your next act….are you the most IGNORANT F*#k to EVER walk the face of the Earth…or what?…LMAO…..
SEC FAN ALERT!!!
Would Ted Cruz allow us to post pictures and videos, or impose more rules to restrict our communication than even FITS does?
Even Breitbart – the animals – gets more libertarian than this site does.
Tea Party has jumped the shark. Also “Town Hall Meeting” as Joe WIlson, a follower and not a leader, uses in his junk phone calls uses has also jumped the shark.
