one created by Big Health Insurers, and Big Pharmaceutical Companies and Conservative Extremists in 2009 as an AstroTurf, i.e. NOT a grass roots movement, organized and financed by Corporations opposed to Health Care Legislation.

Actually the BTP has some respect worthy qualities, and have not been linked with the Phony Tea Party. The BTP actually were a grass roots organization, self financed at least as I understand it, and have folded partly because of differences with the Centrally Organized Tea Party of America or whatever it calls itself, or what its Corporate masters allow it to call itself.

Not quite

The BTP is/was a liberatarian group that backed Ron Paul's long time movement to totally reform government and allow ALL freedoms and liberties (such as open borders, drug laws abandoned, etc). Although Paul had/has SOME really good ideas, most were off the wall and not popular with the majority of the Conservative voters. We really DO believe that the government needs to be reformed into a smaller, more efficient, and less restrictive type, but we also DO believe that there are limits. The extremely far-right liberatarians don't think the government should have any role other than defense of the country.

I've said before, when the presidential candidates were debating, that I hoped that whoever the nominee was for the Republicans that he would take some good ideas from all of them and incorporate those ideas into a pretty decent platform.

The BTP won't be missed by very many.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
