    I really wish everyone who calls themselves a Democrat or a Republican would give this article serious consideration. As well as anyone who is interested in the relationship between the Tea Party movement and Libertarianism. It comes closer to reflecting my own political convictions than perhaps anything I've read.

    Yes, libertarians like to indulge the fantasy that there is little substantive difference between conservatives and liberals. That isn't exactly news to those of us not drinking the Kool-Aid.

    You should definitely not read the article. You might learn something. We can't have that.

    MOst TP members were ardent Bush supporters. I have little faith in their judgement. And we have seen how trhey behave after being elected.

    The Wookie-Suiters keep proving themselves the idiot stepchildren of the political process.
