Nope. My district only has one congressional seat open... Shea-Porter never had a chance of getting my vote regardless of whom her opposition was.

Simply already opposed Shea-Porter.

The Tea Party does sort of seem ridiculous to me though. The original tea party was a demonstration against the lowering of corporate taxation. And the current Tea Part seems against 'wealth redistribution', but consider Palin a figurehead.

California and Massachussets are redistributing wealth... but that redistribution is to Alaska. As Governor did she ever refuse federal dollars stating that Alaska was getting 'wealth redistribution'?

Hmm besides a few conservatives on Foxnews I don't know of anyone who considered Palin a figurehead of the tea party.  From what I have seen Ran Paul has been considered very influential.

The original tea party was started by Ron Paul and the paleoconservative movement to fight socialism and excessive taxation. Now the entire movement's been hijacked by Sarah Palin and neocons who want more gov. but put on the image they want less.

Redistributed what to Alaska? I thought Alaska was up there with NH for the states receiving the lowest amount of federal money.

I don't think any wealth should be redistributed. Who would work if everyone was making the same amount or if people who refused to work were always given money?

Ron Paul is that old?
Nope. Alaska gets more federal dollars than it remits.

I don't know about Sarah Palin, but most of the people who label themselves tea partiers also call themselves constitutional conservatives, which is what Ran Paul labels himself.

Rand is from Kentucky; the State right behind Alaska in receiving more federal money than it remits.

I don't think that's true. Where's the data?

I though Alaska was one state that would do just fine w/o the federal gov.

I know a lot of anarcho-capitalists and liberty lovers who want to distance themselves from the tea party for a number of reasons. For one thing theyve been hijacked by big government neocons after they were started  by Ron Paul.

Hmm out west maybe?  I haven't noticed this in new england.  I've noticed that the "right wing" in NE seems to be generally more libertarian leaning than the more main stream bible belt and western right wingers.
