lol! Actually, no. The tea-p isn't a cohesive organization.<quoted text>
People were fed up with government out of control.
The Tea Party movement advocated a strict adherence to the United States Constitution, reducing U.S. government spending and taxes, and reduction of the U.S. national debt and federal budget deficit.
The movement was considered to be partly conservative, partly libertarian and partly populist.
The theme of the Boston Tea Party has long been used by anti-tax protesters. It was part of Tax Day protests held throughout the 1990s and earlier. By 2001, a custom had developed among some conservative activists of mailing tea bags to legislators and other officials as an act of symbolism.
Why must I always be the one educating you when you're supposed to know everything?
If McCain had threatened to raise the deficit and increase taxes as his "vision" for the economic crisis, you can bet the farm the Tea Party Movement would still have happened.
They're just a bunch of radicals trying to hijack something for their own use!
