You clearly don't know what the Tea Party is about - you have been listening to the media description instead of to the actual Tea Party. The Tea Party is not about stopping abortion or gay marriage or immigration - it is about following the constitution and limiting government. There are noisy individuals within the party that want to drag in side issues such as abortion, but they have not succeeded: the official focus of the Tea Party has remained limiting government. The media pretends to think otherwise, because that pretense allows them to help their favored Democratic Party by demonizing the Tea Party and driving away potential supporters who get all their news from the media instead of going to the source to get the truth.
A perfect example of what this article talks about: http://dailycaller.com/2014/02/21/anti-keystone-billionaire-not-going-to-target-pro-pipeline-democrats-in-2014/#! "…Lehane made clear that Steyer would not be 'tea partying' any Democratic candidates this election, as having a Democratic-controlled Senate is more important than punishing liberal lawmakers for supporting Keystone. 'We’re certainly not subscribing to what I would call the tea party theory of politics,' Lehane said." The Democrats get it. Why don't the Republicans?
I'm so glad someone has finally come out and said this - it is SO IMPORTANT! Thank you, thank you, thank you! And now, please, EVERYONE should be saying this, over and over! And even more important, doing it! If everyone would drop all their other pet issues - just temporarily - and concentrate on the one central issue that makes all other issues possible, we could actually get our liberty back! Then if people want to go back to their pet issues, there would actually be some hope of getting fairly heard. Without freedom, fairness is simply unavailable.
