    There isn't an option that describes how I feel about them. The Tea party is a hosrt term movement directly resulting from specific circumstances. Once those circumstances are resolved (the economy) they'll go away. In my mind, they are necessary to the times we are in.

    Phew, who knew they could pack so much into a simple 4 word slogan.
    That's not what I was saying, I fully acknowledge that the tea party is mainly an economic movement, but the people the tea party backed, are social conservatives, and that there is a large segment of the tea party that is socially conservative, and that needs to be acknowledged. Especially the candidates, because they are going to be voting on things other than economic issues.

    I believe that the liberal media may use the one guy with a semi-racist sign as a token. They plant racists into the Tea Party and try to use them to enforce their fabricated lie that the Tea Party is racist, those are dishonest tokens. I think it's racist to say that a black member of the Tea Party is just a "token." You de-legitimize their beliefs and individuality based on their race when you do that.
    Excellent post and excellent points! Ditto to everything you said.

    Me personally, no, I am not against it, but not by the methods of the Tea Party, who seem to feel that it is something easy to do. It's not, and it's not something we should do all at once.

    And people are never going to stop getting abortions, it's best to make it so that the living don't die due to improper abortions.

    The anti-war movement is largely a liberal movement and there is nothing wrong with pointing that out.

    I don't think it's a wart either... but I think outlawing abortion just creates more problems

    I haven't argued even once in this thread that the tea party is racist or even racially motivated. All I have done is point out that the tea party is mostly dissatisfied white people and a movement consisting mostly of white people. I have no problem with that fact, but a lot of the tea party people in this thread are uber defensive about the fact that they belong to a group that is mostly white.

    Furthermore, when you provide a video that the sole purpose of using a black person because they are black then that is using them as a token. Every adverstiser does the same thing to attract more people of more diverstiy. I have not ascribed any label of racism to it.

    The fun here is that simply by mentioning race next to "tea party" calls up a defensive reaction, regardless of whether anyone makes any accusations of racism.
