Signs like this one, clever, funny, and pointed toward using the ballot box, not the bullet box, are abundant at Tea Party protests.

Yet the MSM only wants to show the ObamaHitler crap.

And then they wonder why their ratings are plunging, their newspaper subscriptions are falling and their relevancy is in question.

I realize that in the rarified air of DC, there are only Democrats and Republicans, but once you get off federal property you find that there is a large uncharted area in between the two .. they are are called independents, and they happen to outnumber Democrats and Republicans (but not the two combined).

That said, when FoxNews doesn’t toe the Democratic Party line, it doesn’t mean that it is a Republican organization.
Obama, Rahm-adong-a-ding-dong, and Axel Foley ought to start to realize that it won’t be the Republicans who come with those “pitchforks” (Obama defended Wall Street) as much as it will be the independents coming for their skins.. some ready to send them to Gitmo .. when the next election rolls around.

Many, both in the press and in politics, as well as ‘average Joes’ make the mistake of assuming that Independent means by definition those in-between Democrats and Republicans. This is not the case as there are many on both the right and the left who can find no home in either party, or even in the smaller ‘fringe’ parties.

Therefore many Independents could never vote for a Democrat, because they are ideologically farther to the right than the Republicans, and vice versa. I myself am one of those Independents who are constantly assumed to be mushy “middlers” (and yes, I just made that word up).

P.S. I’m not saying you are doing that, just adding my 2-cents.
