    Because it is mostly rural folks that disagree with funding entitlement programs...among other things. What is the majority of the US rural population comprised of?

    So you are saying the tea party is composed primarily of rural people? What evidence do you have to support this notion?

    Thank you. I think your answer kind of killed the thread though. I can't tell for sure whether or not the other tea partiers agree with you.

    The amount is debatable. We're all effected by perception. It is just as possible that people preceive the "left" (whoever they area) as seeing more than they actually see. Too many generalizations always accompany such a discussion.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
