amirvish: Social Security and Medicare ARE NOT entitlement programs...they are savings programs that have been mismanaged by an incompetent and profligate federal govt. Because they are unsustainable as administered does not make them "entitlement programs". Everyone who buys this trash is stupid or deceitful. I'll be kind and assume you're "a.".

A new poll by Rasmussen Reports found that only 8% of Americans now identified themselves as members of the Tea Party.  While that still equals more then 25 million people, this is a startling drop from the 24% who answered same question just 4 years ago.  Of course, the liberal media in this country were first to publicize the poll results.  I could almost hear the chorus of left wing politicos singing, “Ding Dong the Tea Party is Dead,” while giving each other high fives.

Why would someone identify himself or herself as a Tea Party member these days with a label...
