    When the ‘tea partiers’ say “we want our country back”, what do they mean by ‘our’?

    What polls show us about the ‘tea party’ is that they are a fringe group diametrically opposed to mainstream America. Among all Americans, George W. Bush has a 27/58 positive/negative favorable rating. Among the ‘tea party’ he's viewed favorably, 57/27. An almost perfect diametrical difference.

    Is there any precedent in history of today’s the ‘tea party’?

    The answer is YES…a parallel to the 'Tea Party" occurred in Russia in the late 1980's. Russian conservatives, the Stalinists, wanted 'their' country back. It was an alliance including xenophobic fringe groups and nationalists who yearned for what they saw as the simple values of Old Russia and the Orthodox church.

    And like today’s ‘tea partiers’, they wanted their authoritarian government back.

    Soviet Conservatives Try to Turn Back the Clock on Gorbachev's Policies

    MOSCOW, Feb. 26— Russian conservatives, uneasy with the liberalization of Soviet society under Mikhail S. Gorbachev, have seized on the country's experiment in more democratic elections as a chance to fight for a return to more authoritarian ways.

    While many candidates and voters say they view the elections to the new Congress of Deputies as a way to further the candor and freedoms allowed by the Soviet leader, conservatives in this city and around the country were boasting last week that they had already succeeded in blocking the nomination of several prominent people regarded as liberals.

    A Disparate Alliance

    The conservatives are a disparate alliance, including xenophobic fringe groups, like Pamyat, as well as large numbers of less extreme nationalists who yearn for what they see as the simple values of Old Russia and the Orthodox church.

    I bet Bfgrn has never even read the constitution based on how backwards he or she has the tea party position.

    LOl, when the hell has the Tea Party ever said they want "their Guberment back"?

    I've heard of people saying they want their country back from the Progressives Commies who run the Guberment and the people who foolishly vote for them.

    The focus of the electioneering is most often to raise opposition to popular, ''liberal'' candidates, who, the speakers and listeners say, pose a danger to Soviet society.

    But most of the conservative Russians interviewed said elections for the new congress present a timely opportunity to raise the visibility of their cause by urging voters away from progressive candidates and toward conservatives, and by winning the support of the nominees themselves.

    Oh, I forgot that the 'word bound' pea brain coalition would be here like flies on shit.

    So WORDS explain it, and mere coincidence...Two groups of right wing fringe elements, one in Russia and one in America, that didn't exist WHILE their authoritarian leaders were RUNNING the government of their country suddenly wanted their COUNTRY back. So the fact that in both countries liberals and progressives were elected to run the government of their COUNTRY has no connection...
