Allen, I love reading your posts, even when I disagree with you. Why is it that liberals, reputed to be "open minded" are actually so intolerant that they resort to name calling when they disagree with someone? Comparing the tea party to the Taliban, or to terrorists as our Vice President did is despicable. The Taliban and terrorists are animals who murder innocent men, woman and Children. The tea party simply has a different point of view then you do. They believe, correctly, that government is out of control and needs to be reigned in. They are being demonized by the media and the Democrats because they are doing something rarely seen in politics---they are taking a principled stand!
