Has The Tea Party Been Good For The United States?
Just wondering what people's opinion are regarding the Tea Party? Although I could hardly be called a conservative or a Republican, and I think the Tea Party is largely responsible for the recent AAA downgrade, due to their inflexiblity in passing bills in Congress, I do think overall the Tea Party has been a good thing, since it once again gives a voice to the voiceless, and stops politics as usual in Washington, DC. Democracy in action. What do you think?
I can't think of anything good that they've done for America
cant really say they've done anything good, besides reminding us that everyone does have a voice in this country, even the ones that don't always make sense!
"and stops politics as usual in Washington, DC. Democracy in action" Not sure where you are seeing this? If anything they have hindered Democracy with their hard core values and inability to compromise. I really do not even think about the tea party or giver them any credibility. Anyone that follows Backman or Palin to me is worthless!

I've been on the fence about the TEA Party. My husband, who is much more conservative than I am, fully supports the TEA Party and has attended rallies. I, however, have not. I do agree with several of their points, but I've been trying to research the accusations of racism and homophobia. No claims...

I have been watching the Yahoo boards and people are furious at the Republicans, especially the Tea Party. They are getting the lion's share of the blame for the debt downgrade. Here's why:1. Obama wanted a grand plan. The Republicans rejected it.2. Obama wanted shared sacrifice including taxes for...
