    The contemporary political party, not the 1773 uprising.

    It depends on what the definition of "is" is. I heard a President say that one time. It worked for him.

    It's a group of American citizens that wants this country to go back to what the founding fathers invisioned and that is small government, low taxes, strong national defense and personal responsibility. The liberal left hates them because they hate freedom, they believe in big government as if the government holds all the answers.

    If 'everyone hated it', it would not have had the successes it had in the last elections. Just sayin'. Those who 'hate' it are the idiots who don't understand it, or disagree with its principles. Fuck them.

    It is a group of ultra-right republicans whose dogmatic views stand as their defining charcateristic.

    A group of pissed ultra-conservatives mostly from the south who hate anyone tries to take their guns or money away from them. They then support crazy theories like abolishing social security, forcing the U.S. to leave the U.N., and overriding Roe vs Wade

    I think those who hate it do so because they see it as an arm of the Republican Party. Liberals who are supposed to be the epitome of tolerance are not tolerant of anything that they disagree with and that would be anything seen to be Republican.

    Then again, I'm no fan of the Tea Party either and for much the same reason. You see, I see them as an arm of the Republican Party as well, and neither the Republican Party nor the Democratic Party are worth spit.
