That's funny cuz I know lots of Texas Liberals and none of them depend on government for their well-being. Mitt Romney lost! Get over it. The 47% number is a lie. My brother is a teacher making about $50,000 a year with a wife and three kids. He doesn't pay Federal Income taxes!!! He only pays PAYROLL taxes! And y'all know what's funniest? The gov takes those payroll taxes and gives them to senior citizens on Social Security and Medicare... and those senior citizens don't pay Federal Income Taxes!!! So the "47%" generates the same money that the other members of the "47%" take... The craziest part is that's TRUE! And probably 95% of the people who complain about the 47% are IN THE 47%!!!!!

Now, suddenly, the Tea Party is everybody’s whipping boy.

Liberals, in the wake of the election, gloat about what they see as liberalism’s return to the mainstream and good riddance to the end of the Republican “extremists.”

And, despite the spin, which never stops in Washington, it is not accidental that four prominent Tea Party congressmen have been purged from key committee posts by Speaker John Boehner.

So as the Washington “establishment” cozies up to the mindset that America will go on no matter what and that a bloated, debt-ridden America can go on just fine as long...
