    Since it isn't really a political party, I'd say no. Besides, that flag has already been taken.

    I figure the tea party or any other party for that matter can adopt or have any flag that they want to have. It is no big deal.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Ehh. They can adopt whatever flag they want. Its none of my business. Of course the TEA party isn't a party so it would kind of hard for them to adopt a flag of any kind.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    Well, I mean, they can't adopt the Union Jack. Or the Star Spangled Banner. Or even the Cross of Saint George. They've all been taken. Why is the Gadsden flag any different?

    It's always been a political statement.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.
