In response to bim09's comment:
The tea party believes in conservative principles, the same principles that Washington fought for and founded this country on: Being endowed by God the right to pursue life, liberty (in your case liberalism) and the pursuit of happiness. And is based on strong moral order in both the human soul and the Commonwealth.
bim, you gotta stop. Historically there are so many things wrong with these posts, but the desire to and avoid politics is too appealing for me to really get into it here. You've got a right to your view, but the attempts to link them back to the Founders is just a mess. The tea party platform is no more directly linked to the Founders than the Greenpeace platform, which is to say that either platform today would be barely recognizable to Washington, other than both having the right to exist (and Washington was one of 7 or 8 key framers of the Constitution, several having very different idealogies).
Lest you think I am disagreeing because I am a liberal or a Democrat, you would be wrong. I'm objecting to your logic and grossly simplified interpretation of the Founders' views, not your preference for the tea party today.
Anyhow, I hope TT comes back too. It would be good for hockey and fun to watch.
Have to agree with Fletch here - I'm a Canuck, and from what you've displayed I'm very confident that I still have a better grasp of American political history than you do (though that's likely for professional reasons).
Best just to drop it and talk hockey.
However, if you want to continue this conversation, start a thread on the politics board and post a link here and I'll gladly participate.
Anywhose - with Thomas out, who is Florida's backup? What is their depth in net?
