Who is David Hale? An Insight of Rockford Tea Party's Hypocritical Organizer...[UPDATED]

David Hale is the organizer of the Rockford Tea Party and a City of Rockford Precinct Committeeman (Ward 8 Precinct 4).  Hale is perhaps best nationally known for his stint on Fox News and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart after locating the fourteen Wisconsin Senators who fled the state to delay a vote on a controversial budget proposal.  What is not as well known is that Mr. Hale is a brute who often resorts to lies and manipulation to get his way.  The mother of his child even had to file an Order of Protection against Hale in 1999, which may make one wonder if Hale is also a violent person.   Being a curious person with critical thinking skills, I decided to uncover the mystery of David Hale.  I was surprised by how much irresponsibility and hypocrisy I found. Not to mention the socialist and fascist ideas Mr. Hale possessed.

Don Manzullo: Did You Forget Who You Represent?

I live in Rockford, IL.  It carries the title of ninth most dangerous city in the USA.  We have over 150,000 citizens and is one of the poorest cities in the state.  Our taxes are high, education low and getting worse, the city is crumbling, there are no jobs, corruption runs wild, and the crime rate soars.  

Rockford has an unemployment rate that hovers around 14%, a graduation rate of 79.9% (as of 2010), and 75% of our students live in low income homes. Our crime statistics break down like this: (as of 2009)

Conservatives: Do You Really Enjoy Being Hypocrites? Part 1

The question I ponder toward my conservative counter parts: Are you stupid or just a hypocrite? I try to inform, but most of the time I'm met with "You and your 'lame stream' media!" So- I lean towards not that bright when it comes to government & economics, but hey- maybe I'm wrong. "Less Government" is one of the right-wing slogans. Within the slogan "less government" is the whole conservative set of assumptions about the nature of the "free market" and government's role in that market. In fact, the whole "public sector/private sector" distinction is an invention of the conservatives. They say that the "private sector" exists outside and independently of the "public sector". The public sector, according to conservative ideology, can only "interfere" with the "private sector", and that such "interference" is "inefficient".
