I’m A Tea Party Member; What A Despicable Human I Am

December 16, 2013

To The Reader’s Forum: I am a member of the T.E.A. party, and until a recent letter in this forum did not realize what a despicable human being I am. I have been to T.E.....

The doctrine accepted by GOP star Paul Ryan and the libertarian right, including the Tea Party, is atheistic (though Ryan claims to be a devout Catholic) , focused on self-interest (and contrary to Christian altruism) and an ideal of "reason" that it members regularly fail to uphold. This is the heritage of novelist Ayn Rand. For more details, if you're really interested in where these ideas came from and how faulty they are, see Greg Nyquist, Ayn Rand Contra Human Nature. An eye opener to those whose minds are not yet closed, like Rep. Reed. Seriously, check out the sources of what you accept as "your" belief and then see how much you've taken for granted and how groundless it is. I repeat, the entire belief system is atheistic, and the entire focus on self-serving interests is unchristian. Those of you who read books, check it out, then compare it to Fox news and the Ryan Express who dump on the "takers." Are you a "maker" or are you stru

.. . . from below, "lets talk," though I have my doubt about those whose opinions will bring about one-line zingers and bumper sticker reasoning. Is there no one out there who wants, and is capable, of discussing the Randian ideology facing America today as a result of the TP acceptance (e.g., Paul Ryan) of her unAmerican and atheistic ideology? Who wants to discuss this seriously? If no one, then the argument remains a standoff between ignorance and enlightenment. Read something other than the Bible. There's a lot that confirms the teachings of the Bible, but the TP ideology is unChristian and unAmerican. Want to debate this? Be prepared for more than one-line zingers. Don't bother if you're not willing to investigate this scion of the Tearepublicans. I take it that most who who read these posts don't pay much attention to the facts and reasoning, but I hope they can 'see' how their beliefs work against their best interests. Ryanism will destroy America? Let's talk.

The trolls rule: nothing in these exchanges has anything to do with the original issue, which I agree with: TP members are ideologues whose ideas of freedom and government are out of the mainstream. We'll see if the GOP can cope with their ideology, or whether (I hope) we can return to a two party government that pays attention to compromise, not ideological purity. I used to be what was called a "Rockefeller Republican," but now am independent, and at arms length from the TP ideology, rooted in Ayn Rand and her atheism and unchristian lack of charity. I find it absolutely amazing that good fundamentalist Christians (and other religionists (look it up) buy into this atheistic argument for our economy and social life. Please read up on this, at least via Wikipedia. I'd love to dialogue with a Randian who has read her "gospel" and knows enough to debate the issues. I doubt many reader have any idea of Rand beyond her novels. Read the theory behind them. Then let

At 4:37 p.m. gravel asks "Why are the righties here?" But if you scour these boards for the last few months, gravel is here, day and night, all hours of the day, waiting for a rightie to comment on one of his posts...waiting...watching...

It all boils down to the title of this letter: "I’m A Tea Party Member; What A Despicable Human I Am." - Agreed. The End.

monkey you don't have the comprehension skills necessary to carry on a conversation. Once again, black people are not so oppressed they can't join this discussion. You seem to think they are too stupid to take care of themselves. Typical prog. Once again you insist diversity must be racial. You're hopeless.

I never said politics should be controlled by white English speakers. You still dyslexic? You're a blatant racist monkey, have been since day one. I already called you out about pretending to be black.

And here's confirmation to what I said over on the other board: There's Monkeyboy over here playing the race card.
