    The realclearpolitics "no toss up" projections now show the GOP as slight favorite to take 6 seats and thus the Senate. Will it happen?

    I certainly hope so. But without a Republican President too, I fear that there will be little progress.

    I wish we could unleash true Americans, instead we'll just get more establishment types.

    Recent economic data is looking pretty bad for the GOP.

    Because no true Scotsman would vote Democrat.

    True Americans believe in freedom and individual responsibility.

    And how on Earth does that relate to the Tea Party?

    Obviously, freedom and individual responsibility are maximized in an aristocratic society where your path in life is determined at birth.

    Tea Party stands for lowering taxation and a government restricted by actually following the Constitution. Make the government smaller and live within a budget!

    And here I thought the GOP had that agenda too. What's the difference?

    There is no hope with the GOP. What have they ever done that is different than democrats? They run up deficits, lie to the American people, start wars abroad, do nothing about illegal immigration, create massive entitlements etc.

    No, the people that are feared in Washington are conservatives. Just look to see who the IRS is targeting to see who they fear. Those who are targeted are not main stream Republicans, they are conservatives.

    I don't even think I could vote for a Republican in good conscience anymore. From what I see and have seen, they are one in the same from the DNC.

    It's like that slim ball Mitch McConnell. He tries to vote against the DNC, unless his vote is needed to pass their legislation. He has done it time and again. I have no more respect for the likes of him or his side kick Boehner. They will continue to make a mockery of the GOP with stunts like suing the president, as they let the Constitution and rule of law continue to get trampled.
