    You got it wrong....ALL the Founding Fathers were Tea Baggers

    In spite of being the biggest Liberals of the day

    they definitely weren't modern day liberals... there views on taxes and what the citizen owes and should expect from the government were much different and do actually align with the non-insane parts of the tea party

    And which parts of the Tea Party are insane? The ones who want lower taxes? The ones that want us to cut spending? Enlighten us.

    BTW if you really want people to accept your point of view, you have to present them with more than "That there Glenn Beck is insane". It's not really an argument.

    Are you saying that the Tea Baggers have an 18th century view of the economic and social structure of the country?

    wanting the government out of your life and not forcing you to buy any products, build an empire, or bail out poor people isn't "18th century"

    18th Century America was an agrarian economy based on slavery. Due to the distances between the Colonies and primitive transportation and communications, we could not have had a powerful central government if we wanted one

    The founding fathers never said anything about the government being in your life in the Constitution.
    We had a flimsy economic system that relied heavily on barter and scatching a living off a dirt farm......there was nothing to buy and no money to spend

    With the exception of Avatar, this looks like a liberal love fest.
