What is your opinion of the Tea Party?
Is it an ultra conservative faction that will only pull votes from the Republican party, or is this a political movement that is destined for legitimacy?
Good for the country. Smaller government, Less spending should be something all Americans should get behind.
Its both, it happens to a group of concerned individuals that are hardlined small government people who believe that the country is head the wrong direction with more government, and I think they have a large influence on who will be elected for the republican party, but they are a minority, and it still not big enough if it breaks from the republican party to make any moves to be a legitimate especially as shown by this crop of "Tea Party" candidates that are running for president. Mitt Romney has basically ignored them and he still will probably win the republican nomination.
They started out with the right ideas, but then it seems they got hiijacked by the right wing fanatics like Glenn Beck and Shawn Hannity. It really is sad how it all went downhill so fast.
