One hint of what a Tea Partyist's foreign policy might resemble is that of John Dennis, a "pro-liberty Republican" running to unseat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. He takes a narrow constitutional view of the powers of the president to declare war. Yet he also waxes Jeffersonian, if not Obama-esque, at points: "We should welcome trade with all countries, resolve our outstanding disputes with countries considered unfriendly and have diplomatic relations with all." And he stamps out the Bush doctrine of pre-emptive war.
But then there are those such as Arizonan senatorial candidate J.D. Hayworth, whose platform could have been written by Karl Rove: He supports "enhanced interrogation techniques," wants to keep Guantanamo open indefinitely, and even accuses his opponent, a decorated war veteran named Sen. John McCain, of being soft on national security.
Obama is a flake who was lying all along.

The Tea Party agenda is just another way of saying "I've got mine so everyone else can just go **** themselves". No education, no healthcare, no support for business, no help for the downtrodden, but pouring money into military defense is okay because fear is good. It's sounds like the policies of The Congo or Sudan.
So where were the Tea party people when Dick, Carl, Donald and George were wiping their asses with The Constitution and laughing all the way to the bank? Maybe it's okay when the old white guys do it.
Tea Party folks and Conservatives universally wish to protect traditional values, their families, their country. Tea Party folks and Conservatives universally wish to adhere to the law of the land and demand that laws like immigration laws be enforced. Tea Party folks and Conservatives universally support their police force and their military. Tea Party folks and Conservatives universally believe in protecting their culture and the values that come from their religious teachings. Tea Party folks and Conservatives fight fiercely to prevent the government from intruding on the private sector as it did with its takeover of General Motors and Chrysler, as it has with the passage of Obamacare and as it has with its continued over-regulation of the environment and the obstacles it presents to industries who wish to tap our nation's great resources.
Is it thus radical for individuals to espouse the protection of traditional mores? No.
Is it radical for someone to defend their cultural beliefs? No.
Is it radical for someone to hold dear their values as taught for generations by their churches? No.
It is the liberal who wishes to balkanize this country and destroy its culture.
It is the liberal who believes in unfettered immigration with welfare for all.
It is the liberal who would eliminate our military and/or force them into other non-military activities around the world.
It is the liberal who would conduct social experiments within the military denying the risk to esprit de corps.
It is the liberal who denies farmers water because of a danger to small fish, who denies the nation access to Alaskan oil in favor of frozen tundra and who denies foresters the ability to harvest trees to protect a spotted owl.
It is the liberal who would disarm our citizens and deny them the ability to protect their homes and their families.
It is the liberal who would deny the existence of God and deny the members of any Christian faith a public forum.
It is the liberal who wishes to destroy age old traditions like Christmas, the inclusion of God in the Pledge of Allegiance and who wish to exclude church from state.
It is the liberal who would spend the country into oblivion and who continue to amass an extraordinary debt that threatens all future generations.
It is the liberal who wishes to legalize mind altering and arguably addictive substances that have been illegal for generations.
It is the liberal who would promote statism and its concepts of social engineering.
So, who is it that is radical? It is not the Tea Party folks and it is not the Conservative. We are the obstacles to statism and revolutionary concepts that have been sold to many Americans over the past three generations all of which have as their goal the control of our economy and the control of our lives.
Bottom line, we cannot afford to allow these radicals to win. Their ideas are contrary to the mores of this great nation and it is the Conservative that stands in the way of their implementation and the destruction of this nation.
Support your conservative candidates this fall. Link
