    Once again, directorblue @ Doug Ross Journal Doug Ross @ Journal: EXPOSED: The Real Tea Party Platform has come up with a good piece which explains what the Tea Party is all about. He provides us with a good graphic that shows the principles.

    Here's a personal take on the Tea Party. As long as it remains a fractured group of people without a central organization, it will have no power beyond local politics. But, by its very nature, it seems to me to be a most difficult task to bring the varied entities together to coalesce into a viable national organization.

    Yes, the media and lefties love to vilify The Tea Party, but don't seem to have the fainest idea of who or what they are attacking.

    Do we want to keep our freedoms or not.

    All that stuff sounds fine and dandy but when in power they forget it and start kissing rich man ass just like any other republican. What is their current platform? A raft of corporate socialism and neo-confederate throwbacks that bears no resemblance to a coherent populist agenda. Before you accuse me of ignorance understand that I do not look to party manifestos to find what someone believes in, I look to what they fight for and attack with the most energy and right now they are failing the test of giving a damn about anyone other than the 1%.

    The biggest flaw in that argument is that their idea of "Faith and Family Values" is conflicting with "Constitutionally Limited Government". But since you did post a fancy chart from some random guy's blog I am now convinced the Tea Party isn't full of shit.

    Another one who thinks we can run the country entirely for the benefit of the richest and remain free. Do you think a billionaire or their pet politicians give two shits about your freedom if their bottom line is at stake?
