Yes, indeed, it was supposed to be a strong independent movement. Unfortunately, people who took it over were people like Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, and
Michelle Bachman. It became an ultra conservative movement which I can't agree with.
When I talk about independent, I mean center of the aisle independent. Not ultra right wing nutcases like the birthers. That doesn't solve anything
about the political problems within our society.
The fact remains, that the TEA Party is now an ultra conservative entity. A GOP/NewsCorp brand.
When America finally wakes up and realizes that being at the ultra extreme part of the political spectrum isn't the way to go, we can start really
fixing the problems in our society.
The TEA Party philosophy of 0% tax for the wealthiest 1% is an oligarchist mindset. It appears that for some god knows reason these people think that
if you don't tax the wealthy at all, they will shower upon the faithful money and jobs. (Course reality shows that's not how it works, the rich
didn't get rich by writing a lot of checks.
) and the opposite is also true, giving away the farm doesn't equate into sound fiscal policy.
(Endless unemployment, welfare, entitlements)
Center of the political spectrum is where we need to be, and not at the extreme end. Unfortunately, the TEA Party is at the extreme right wing end of
the political spectrum and that's not healthy for anyone.
