Yes, Republicans are the epitome of hypocrisy. Like they worry so much about a fetus until it's born- then fight every program that aids it's health, welfare and education.
I agree we need a third party in this country but unfortunately the "Tea party" isn't it- they are just Republicans on steroids.
The problem with our government is that politicians have become too beholden to the fat cats with money who finance their re-election campaigns rather than to the people who they are suppose serve and protect. The recent bail-outs and healthcare reform are two good examples- they capitulated to industry lobbyists rather than doing the right thing.
