Is it fair to refer to the Tea Party as the American Taliban?


I think I saw a bumper sticker that said this. Obviously, this would be a very liberal position, but are there any actual similarities? Is this a statement you would support or oppose?

    D.william, your comment is completely inconsistent with fact. While the TP members have put the brakes on more immoral debt spending, the president has found a way to add trillions to our immoral deficit.

    Yes, struggling to hold onto outdated ideas like balanced budgets, the immorality of deficit spending, small government, limited government reach, low taxes, fed duties consistent with the Constitution. And you don't want these because....?

    Your comments might be interesting for purposes of discussion if they were based in fact but they are not. I thought Hubpages was for purpose of inteligent dialogue. Evidently that is not the case.
