Americans Against the Tea Party
Introduction
The modern conservative is engaged in one of man’s oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness. -John Kenneth Galbraith 

AATTP opposes the Tea Party/GOP ideology and politics, and we fight to expose them and defeat them at ballot boxes everywhere, and in the market-place of ideas.  We support freedom and equal rights for all Americans.  We support income equality and closing the gap between ultra-rich and poor.  We believe that a strong vibrant middle-class is essential to a thriving economy.  We believe in a strong social safety net, and oppose any cuts to social programs, or education – but rather, we wish to see them expanded and funded fully – BEFORE tax cuts are given to the wealthy and corporations. 

We reject the idea of Trickle-Down and Austrian economics.  We want all tax breaks for the ultra-rich to expire.  We demand corporations pay their taxes and we want all government subsidies to corporations raking in record profits to stop.  Corporations are not people.  We want money out of politics.  We believe that diplomacy is the first step toward peace, and we support a pragmatic, and even-handed foreign policy.   War is the last resort.  We believe the American People should come first, in terms of policy and legislation:  especially the young, elderly, weak, sick, vulnerable, marginalized, and exploited.

If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.” -John F. Kennedy

Mission

The hatred, division, virulent, unpredictable anger, violent threats and posturing by the Tea-Baggers present a real danger to the lives of President Obama, his family, his administration, Congressional Democrats and liberals and  progressives of all stripes.  Americans Against The Tea Party is a group committed to exposing the Tea Party’s lies, violence, racism, ignorance, intolerance, bigotry, and corporatist-fascist efforts to subvert our democratic process – and organizing together to defeat Tea Party/GOP candidates on the ballot everywhere.   We support the Occupy movement.   WE ARE THE 99%.  WE ARE AATTP!

I often say the USA is built in double standards. Most choose to shut their eyes when faced with this reality.

Why does the media give proven crank or untrue informational articles airtime or print space ?

Matt Taibbi at Rolling Stone says that Walker would be a great gift to the Democrats, because everything he does so well to give the conservatives the raw meat ideology they crave makes it impossible for him to win in the General election.

+Michael Malloy Right but how does that relate to Rep. Christy Perry's statements "knowing their child is in heaven" or "letting them be with god." She didn't say anything about eliminating inferior species. You said the theory supports her statements. How?

Introducing Shane: The Greatest Walmart Employee Who Ever Lived

We can only hope that Shane is a real person and that somewhere out there, he is entertaining his co-workers and customers while narrowly avoiding the wrath of management.

#Walmart
Shane is reported to be an employee in a Walmart deli by "Ardentleprechaun," a Reddit user who says that his coworker is quite the annoyance to and is constantly being left disapproving messages on the department whiteboard by management, scolding him for his good natured pranks.
