    Why does everyone think the tea party is another Republican party?

    It probably has something to do with the fact that the vast majority of tea party "members" are conservative, or rather ultra conservative.  So while they may be separate entities they encompass most of the same stances, views, platforms, etc.  It's just that the tea party is closer to libertarian than conservative.  I haven't researched this personally, but I doubt to many Democrats have ties to the tea party.  Since we are a two party country it stands to reason that they had to come from one of those two parties originally.

    Simply put the tea party is a more extreme form of the Republican party. They are far more right-wing than the  Republicans.

    Just watch the news and watch what the tea-party believes in and you will get my point.

    The tea party does not share much with the Democratic party.

    They are just a bunch of angry middle class old people who have no idea what the root problems in our government are. If they were just against the income tax, that would be one thing. But they apparently think we should increase military spending and chase this elusive "radical Islamic" enemy notion to the ends of the earth as well. So they're selfish and stupid. We have one of these guys in my neighborhood. He stands at his window with a pair of binoculars and calls the cops if you leave your rake out on your front porch. It doesn't sound like he wants liberty to me.

    Maybe because at it's infancy the party was hijacked by the Republican party? It originally began as a grassroots movement of both Liberals and Conservatives until corporate interests and staunch Republicans like Palin took over.

    Because they support (extreme) laissez-faire politics - even though the vast majority of tea party members don't understand the term or its political, economic and social implications. The political naivety shown by these people is truly breath-taking. They do not - for instance - understand that the policies they are supporting are not in their own interests; but the interests of the corporatocracy. They think they are campaigning for 'freedom' (another term they seem to have problems with) when all they will get is enslavement by the rich. These people are supporting their own impoverishment.

    It 's quite frightening when you think about it. The last time a nation was so totally 'sold' on a political ideology detrimental to the interests of the general populace occurred in the 1930s in Nazi Germany.

    Mussolini himself declared that facism should, more accurately, be called corporatism.
