    I think the Tea Party is good. We need to have protests that tell our government that we are on a path of unsustainable spending.

    Well easy, it shows that your point is irrellevant as democrats and tea party detractors voted for a candidate who was against the same things you just mentioned. It shows this is an economic movement and not a racial or social one/.

    Just out of curiosity, why are you so hung up on the tea party being a white movement? So what? Why does that automiatically make it racist? Yeah, the Tea Party is mostly dissatisfied white people. Does the fact that a group of predominately white people got together to protest inherently mean that it is a racially motivated movement? Perhaps it says something else. Could you think of what else it could mean?

    Re: The Tea Party Is.....

    I think the rev is right on the idea that it is a combination of different things including a strain of libertarianism. The seem to combine right wing populism, right wing libertarianism, a hatred of unions, opposition to most progressive reforms and developments over the last fifty years and the Wal Mart brand of republicanism.

    All of those things are despicable in and of themselves. When you mix it all together, you have the Long Island Iced tea party of politics. Their totality is much worse than merely the sum of each of its parts. I expect only of of two things will happen with it:
    1) they pretty much take over lock, stock and barrel complete control of the Republican party nominating Christine O'Donnell type candidates all across the land including some wingnut for President,
    2) being denied that by the Wall Street wing of the GOP, they begin to drift away and eventually form a third party only to see that fall apart in short order due to lack of funding and central leadership.
