From the very beginning of the Tea Party movement, it was recognized by backers of big government as a grass roots movement opposing big government and liberal fiscal policies....

"But being a war hero does not mean you are right about everything for the rest of your life."

Perhaps not, but I dare say it entitles someone to a bit more respect than you've demonstrated.

I also voted for Perot in 92 and 96.

That, my friends, is VERY coincidental.

"I've always considered Bob Dole to be a war hero who dedicated his life to public service."

Dole was a war hero (Purple Heart and Bronze Star)- and no one takes that away from him. Same with John McCain (Silver Star, Legion of Merit, Distinguished Flying Cross, Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Navy Commendation Medal, et al), , and spent 5 years in a POW camp.

But being a war hero does not mean you are right about everything for the rest of your life.

I have a number of friends who live in AZ, and the republicans there call McCain, Juan McShame, RINO.

Perot was in '92 Jerry. Though there is always a third party candidate of some kind on the ballot.

I did not. You may recall there was a third party candidate running that year.

"We just can't count on leftists for truthful information"

Here's your chance for glory Wayne. Prove that any of the information I posted is false or even misleading.

If you can't dispute it, then clearly you agree with it.

"They continually provide great entertainment, but no substance, in their rants. So, I say "Thanks for the laughs, leftist useful idiots!"

I think you forgot your data Wayne. You know, "the substance"?

Where I come from, calling someone over, and over again "a leftist idiot" isn't substance.

Like for example, "substance" might be disputing some of the information I provided. Can you actually do that? If not, then why are you here?

It's amazing to see and realize that these crazy leftists we have here do such verbal gymnastics that initially true statements become completely unrecognizable falsehoods, among their routine falsehoods, prevarications and lies. They continually provide great entertainment, but no substance, in their rants. So, I say "Thanks for the laughs, leftist useful idiots! You're a very funny bunch, even though always inaccurate!"

Steeler,

"That's not what I'm saying, it's what you're saying. But yes, no group should have tax exempt status is they violate the guidelines, progressive or conservative. This would be one small way to simplify the tax code."

Whatever you say, Hayes will twist it and pervert it out of original context. Some of the liberal/progressive people who post here are actually interesting to debate. Hayes is narcissist and true to his own self, including lying to make the story fit his agenda, period. I don't both much and neither should anyone else here. When you sup with the d e v I l, you better have a long handled spoon. The d e v I l, used in metaphorical form, not literal...

Bob Dole isn't the only Republican speaking of the disastrous moves the republican party has been making.

No USABorn it is more likely those on the right are prone to making false statements.

The reason Bob Dole is right, is that elements of the Republican party today are absolutely destroying the party, with ridiculous comments, falsehoods, and whacked out conspiracy theories daily.

The base is being fed a steady diet of made up scandals, lies, and victimization, and they either don't have the smarts, or the desire to differentiate what's true from crazy conspiracy theories about "weather weapons", the DHS "stockpiling bullets", the President ordering the attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, and the IRS "persecuting" conservative groups.

These are people that are so desperate, they'll bite on anything, and it's really starting to drag the whole party down.

I'm starting to agree with Bob Dole:

"Former Senator Bob Dole appeared on Fox News Sunday and had scathing words for the leaders of the party that once nominated him for president.

“I think they ought to put a sign on the National Committee door that says ‘closed for repairs,’ until New Years’ Day next year,” Dole told Chris Wallace, “and spend that time going over ideas and positive agendas.”

Wallace compared the two cloture motions during Dole’s first two years as senator to the 115 filed in the last two years by senate Republicans. Dole said the filibuster was being abused. “There are some cases when you could probably justify it,” Dole said, “but not many.”

“Could people like Bob Dole, even Ronald Reagan, could you make it in today’s Republican party?” Wallace asked.

“I doubt it,” Dole said. “Reagan couldn’t have made it. Certainly Nixon couldn’t have made it, because he had ideas.”"

"Everyone with a brain knows the lamestream media knocks and lies about conservatives every chance they get."

Oh yes, poor, poor persecuted Republicans. Reality is just one giant conspiracy against you.

Don't you ever get tired of playing the victims?

"Politifact conducted a study and found that Republicans are more prone to make false staements than their Democratic counterparts by a 3 to 1 margin. Not surprised by this study."

Everyone with a brain knows the lamestream media knocks and lies about conservatives every chance they get.

So it's no big surprise to know PolitiFact**** is a project operated by the Tampa Bay Times, in which reporters and editors from the Times and affiliated media outlets "fact-check statements.

Talk about false statements! The libs are experts at it.

" Hmm, the IRS says they have only had 23,722 applications in 11 years"

Wrong again boobie. That's total 501(c)(4) applications, NOT total 501 applications. You're still batting a thousand loser.
