    Did they break up businesses and cars while doing it? No, they convinced the people they would do something and won the House in 2010

    Obama’s election in 2008 was preceded and followed by violent attacks and property destruction targeted against minorities.

    Kaylon Johnson, an African American campaign worker for Obama, was physically assaulted for wearing an Obama T-shirt in Louisiana following the 2008 election. The three white male attackers shouted “Fuck Obama!” and “****** president!” as they broke Johnson’s nose and fractured his eye-socket, requiring surgery.

    More frequently, Obama’s presidency was marked by effigies of our first black president hanging from nooses across the country, for example in Kentucky, Washington State, and Maine, or being burned around the world. What Trump supporters fail to remember is that following Obama’s election, property was destroyed across the country, for example in Pennsylvania, Texas, and North Carolina, and a predominately black church was torched in Massachusetts."

    The snowflakes dressed in black are anarchists, more a kin to libertarians philosophically, than to liberals.

    Yes, that's the name, but 'republic' is not a system of government, it merely denotes the form, and that is only the lack of a monarch/dictator. The US is a democratic republic.

    Exactly , they are protesting the system we have in place.
    Do you take issue with individuals exercising their right to free speech?

    Ms. Labrea,

    Those scattered and isolated events were not the actions of the Tea Party.

    Hope that helps clarify things.

    Don't be so simple. They are protesting, to keep your idiot from breaking that system.
    But you already know that.

    That was my point, they are not offering an alternative in their protest other then breaking things up. Trump is doing everything right , so they are between a rock and a hard place. Jobs have gone up, he reactions to Syria was good and now showing some strength in Korea was right. What do the Democrats offer? Just protesting the loss of Hillary is all I can figure.
    Thanks from Trumpet
