    Whoa….where is all this “tea party” stuff coming from? Seems that you folks have latched onto a gross over-simplification here….Independent voters (like me) aren’t “tea-baggers”…we’re just ordinary working people who are tired of the unresponsiveness of our elected officials. Here in MA, where Dems outnumber Repubs 3 to1, Dem candidates have taken their election chances for granted, and have arrogantly ignored any voices except their own. 51% of MA voters (all parties) OPPOSE the current health care bill; 61% say that Washington can’t afford this bill. And every day, we hear of another back-room deal to “persuade” another dissenting Congressman to vote for this legislation after he gets his “cut” at the expense of our state. Then Coakley, under pressure, runs to DC for a $10K per head fundraiser attended by big health insurance and drug companies….why do you think we are upset? DO we want and need GOOD healthcare? Hell, yes!!! Will this bill produce it? Hell, NO!!! And if it takes a Repub senator from MA to stop it, we’ll send him to DC to do just that. I don’t drink tea, or Kool-Aid; I want fairness, openness and fiscal responsibility. Coakley promises NONE of that. I’ll take my chances with Brown. Blame political deafness, not some make-believe bogeyman.

    Ayn Rand expressed views of people and how they function, both as herd members and individuals, showing a preference for individual freedom. America was founded on individual freedom, simply because there was no other choice at the time to follow the Old World herd model. Our Founding Fathers gave us a definition of what Americans created, then a system to keep it going. We had three constitutions to define the limits of the national system, as we kept our individual governance close, starting between the ears and in the heart up to the County level that was supposed to be no further than a days horseback ride. In the 21st century, our elected representatives took an Oath to keep what was established, yet turned on it immediately and trashed it in order to reintroduce the Old World system rejected almost 400 years ago, by force just over 200 years ago. They moved government away from the individual to a distant city and founded it as the center of organized crime, as if it were just an extension of Haiti. Then, they picked our pockets and destroyed our economy. Claysamerica.com
