    I seriously doubt they all think that way.

    But, again, I haven't really looked into it much at all.
    Well, I hope you're right -- and of course, more light is shed on the radicals than on the more moderate members. But it seems to me that the Tea Party sways to Limbaugh and Hannity and Beck's words, which are themselves intensely radical. So it makes me dubious that the Tea Party claims too many moderate members. It's like having moderate and open-minded Ku Klux Klan members -- there may be a choice few, but the institution itself is radically founded.

    The republicans and their greedy wallstreet buddies are responsible for the current state of the economy. This much is certain.
