The so-called modern "Tea Party" is made up of nothing more than a group of "extortionist's" and terrorist's who are hell bent on destroying the worlds economy and the social fabric of the United States of America. If you do not agree with this statement then you are also part of the problem.
Are you a fan of the movie "Serenity" or "Star Wars"? How about the tv-show "FireFly"?
Why were those movies successful?
What was the main premise of both movies? Anyone?
Yes, the direction of these questions is topic related.
---- edited for answer ---
They were about a small group (minority) of individuals fighting to overcome a massive dictatorship (majority).

If Super Liberals as you put it wanted to come in and sort this mess out against their Republican counterparts, great! I have no quarrel with that, or any group that wants to reign in this fiscal nightmare that is before us.
The Tea Party is anti-democratic and guilty of abuse of power,

Liberals on the idea of less Govt, yes.
Liberals in the current idea, no.
The concept of firefly was the nations merged into one. socialism and capitalism creates corporatism sort of philosophy, the whole world was run as a corporation overall.
The cast was raging against the corporate machine...it was not a story about the woes of big or small government, it was a story about corruption through love of money...its actually a fairly in depth conversation, not one for this thread, but interesting nonetheless with some parallels.
The whole idea is that merger from corporation to government kills off the people's voice. That is the scary part of today as we see more and more large corporate influence being pushed into governments of the west...it quickly stops becoming a democracy (after all, what person can compete with a multi-billion dollar corporation...a person can stand on a soapbox and deliver a message, a corporation can saturate all media with endless ads saying the opposite...)
Now, with that general understanding, find out which party is pushing for more and more corporate integration with the government...find out which party made corporations people, or how corporations can now spend unlimited anonymous funds towards superpacs...do some research and suddenly things become clear.
No, the tea party are akin to sith. (to jump to the star wars theme) as they currently stand.

The country is a republic not a democracy, and the tea party is not in power (the guy in power goes by the name Barack Obama although his real name is Barry Soetoro). If the tea party was guilty of blackmail the FBI would have arrested them by now, and who is the tea party exactly? 85 people who have been VOTED in? So you're conspiracy theory involves 85 people who were voted in who are collaborating with each other to commit blackmail upon the United States government? I'm enjoying this

The "tea party" is exactly democratic. They are just a bunch of average people, mostly middle america group who see
this country headed in the wrong direction. They voted, democratically, to change that direction. What about all of the groups that support your leftist agenda. Example Media Matters, anything to do with George Soros and all of his groups that throw money, rallying the troups trying to change our country.
Why is it when you lefties don't agree with people it always comes to name bashing and whinning about being un-american. What's really bad for our country is the ignorant who blindly follow the mind mindset of Soros, Obama, Reid and Pelosi
You have no clue what you're talking about.
Actually that person knows exactly what he/she is talking about, I agree with said poster, and his/her post is quite accurate in fact.
