Hi everyone Im a student currently working on a sociology paper for college. The basis of this paper is to do research on a group of people who are outside your immediate social circle in order to understand them better. I was interested in examining the Tea Party movement, and so I developed a questionnaire for people who identify as Tea-partiers in order to understand some of their positions better. This is a very informal questionnaire, and I dont have any pretenses about it being anything scientific. I also thought it may be fun for some of you as an exercise in explaining your world-view, and maybe get to know one another better. Id only ask that you keep your responses fairly brief, around two paragraphs at the most. Thanks! - Dan At its most fundamental level, how would you describe the average Tea Partier? What is the motivation behind the Tea Party? What are some of its major goals? How do you feel about how the media has represented the Tea Party? Overall, has it been fair? If you could change one thing about how the Tea Party has been depicted in the media, what would it be? What do you think is the common perception of the Tea Party outside of your group? Are there any misconceptions that the average person may have about the Tea Party? If so, what are they? What do you think that people who are opposed to the Tea Party think of your group? What do you think is a misconception that opponents have about the Tea Party?
