    Reading this is like a acid flashback. Only in the mind of liberals.

    Choosing a 40-year-old terrorist group to compare the Tea Party to was a transparent attempt to make them look better by comparison and nothing more. You could just as easily replace the Weather Underground in that comparison with Hitler, cancer, dogs crapping on your front lawn, Hurricane Katrina, or the ebola virus and achieve the same result. And the comparisons would be just about as silly.

    the TEA party is not full of radicals. They are elected to promote Fiscal responsibility and smaller government and that's exactly what they are doing. What's so radical about that. Taxed Enough Already. Sounds pretty logical to me. I do not agree with what every TEA party member stands for, but the basics of less government lower taxes and controlled spending I'm all for

    they may not be in your mind, but to a progressive liberal they are.

    That's true too, but I guess my idea of what's radical and not may be different. Big changes can be seen as radical despite what end of the spectrum they come from. Radical changes is just what the government needs, if the United States is gonna survive, let alone remain a super power for the next 50-60 years

    Exactly.

    The media knows it cannot win an ideological debate with them, so they try to turn it into "Oh... uh... well... they're crazy! And you're crazy too if you support them!"

    The main stream media calling anyone radical makes me giggle. they are about as left as you get these days. I'd love to have a debate on some hot issues with a far leftist and watch them try to explain how raising taxes on the rich and giving free hand outs will somehow make America more prosperous

    It isn't so much that they should raise taxes on the rich - but rather not overtax the poor. I'd preferably like to see all Americans prosper - if that's even possible. The rich should spend more as means to not have TOO much of an inbalance. But I definitely don't favor socialism neither.
