    Can I be old and cynical and yet somehow escape the inevitable morose, crippling malaise?

    So what MoveOn.org was funded by billionaire George Soros. BTW there is no definitive "tea party", but a loosely connected groups.

    You obviously hate America's freedoms. Your open support for Communism speaks volumes about that hate.

    If they are so clandestine and shady, how the heck do you know about it?

    Seems they are great businessmen but suck at being clandestine and shady. Highly, unlikely btw, because to be a great business person you have to be awesome at being clandestine and shady ;)

    Curious, who should we revere? What type of people should we promote as leaders? Or don't we need any? Who should a country trust to lead itself into the next century and beyond? Who should we be empowering to invent new jobs, create new products, change the world in a positive way? Any particular group of leaders? Politicians? Local politicians? Get rid of politicians? what exactly?

    I am not sure if I am catching your vision other than the fact you hate corporate interests.

    If humans learned to exist as ants, would that be eutopia? I might sound argumentative, but i have actually contemplated this question in all reality.

    It's great to be a Libertarian when you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth and you're among the richest people in the country. Makes sense that they are against environmental regulations, health care for everyone, and the like.

    I've been saying since its inception that members of the 'Tea Party' are unwittingly the pawns of elites with money, power and countless ways to benefit from less government.

    How is this subversive and manipulative action by mega corporations any different than the big government that the Tea Party eschews? At least we have some transparency and means for recourse against government action. These men are intentionally puppeteering the political system for their own economic gain.

    (emphasis mine)

    Disgusting. Why do we idolize, support, enable and allow these people to continue to do this? These people are only interested in their own personal financial gains and in no way at all in participating in the give-and-take of a nation of neighbors who share in our environmental resources. These people care only about themselves...a syndrome that seems to have become more widespread in recent years.

    Thank you. I was getting concerned that I seemed to be the only one who noticed that.
