    Above and beyond the rhetoric, on what do those who fancy themselves members of the tea party movement agree?

    Open carry, I suppose; repeal of the 16th Amendment, too; distaste for everything liberal; lawyers, elected officials and the two dominant political parties.

    What else? If you are a supporter of this movement, what planks would be part of the platform of such a party?

    I don't see it as fringe, I see it as angry middle.

    They have no love for Republicans either, and most of the angst is not targeted toward things as they are, but at the fact that Congress is ignoring what the people are saying they want.

    Didn't you hear?

    They support ZERO taxes. You can't argue with that can you?

    Id like to see the Senate once again be elected by the states as the Constitution was designed for. Restore the Republic.

    If they are not beating liberals with bats in the streets, they are just a bunch of centrists.

    I would too. Maybe if we throw money at them, they'll think we care and do something along those lines.

    I actually see one clueless individual and a bunch of centrists. After all, the liberal isn't bleeding yet so they much be centrists.
