    I would call this "anti-big-government". It's not necessarily racist.

    We have a racist President. Racism is the in-thing.

    Well, they can say that the Public School system is "socialism". So, who's right?
    Does the US Constitution give the right to a "Public School system"?

    Isn't a much better question this:

    Is the tea party even remotely relevant anymore?

    The tea party is just another brand name of the John Birch Society of the 1950's. Nothing more, nothing less. Get a democratic President, get a right wing backlash. Racists? Oh, yeah.

    Honest question, I really dont know. What is the real demographics of the Tea Party? Black membership about 20%or something like that?
