Sedistix;5538040I actually agree with most of the non-negotiable tenets of the tea-party. With a few exceptions. #'s 3, 10, 11, 14 & 15 are total shit. 1. Illegal Aliens Are Here Illegally. 2. Pro-Domestic Employment Is Indispensable. 3. Stronger Military Is Essential. 4. Special Interests Eliminated. 5. Gun Ownership Is Sacred. 6. Government Must Be Downsized. 7. National Budget Must Be Balanced. 8. Deficit Spending Will End. 9. Bail-Out And Stimulus Plans Are Illegal. 10. Reduce Personal Income Taxes A Must. 11. Reduce Business Income Taxes Are Mandatory. 12. Political Offices Available To Average Citizens. 13. Intrusive Government Stopped. 14. English As Core Language Is Required. 15. Traditional Family Values Are Encouraged.

Other than 14 and 15, the others you are right, seems a bit too much. And I have never been to a TEA website to date, never knew they had a list.

There may be problems with immigration. There always have been. But you know what? Maybe it is worth it. Maybe the fact that we share resources and grant asylum to people who might, in some cases, abuse this generosity, is the result of a long-lasting development of humanistic and enlightened ideals which are more important than the money cashed in by the low percentage of first-generation migrants who misbehave.

All the problems of immigration are worth it simply because, eh, multiculturalism is valuable, rich, advanced and good by fact? Whatever happens with it, no one is able to question or criticise it because of the presumption that it's great. Seems like a holy agenda.

Sad, but now I understand why those people feel frustrated when they are branded xenophobes if they disagree with this agenda no matter how relevant their criticism is.

MrFancypants;5538332 Fallacious interpretation of what I posted as I disqualified the right-wingers based on several points such as the correlation problem, not based on irrelevant identifiers.

I did not notice this earlier. Now let me get this straight. It’s reasonable to dismiss political agendas, because of failures in correlation & causation. And its reasonable to dismiss correlation & causation assertions, because of political agendas. Where does one maneuver in this perfectly unbiased world?

And those aren't only moral in nature either. So before you start calling the posts of others "sad" you might want to work on your reading comprehension.

As for the rest of your post, you insinuate that the criticism is relevant without providing any factual evidence and use a strawman (by implying that I deny any type of criticism, which I clearly haven't as the post you quoted indicates). You do exactly what you set out to complain about and misrepresent what I said on top of that.

No, that's not what I said. It is interesting though that you posted a childish remark ("that's cute") which adds nothing to the debate before even reading my post.
