Definitely different young people. Most kids at TP rallies are home schooled and absolutely BLOWING AWAY their union-educated peers in every metric, whether it's college admissions, graduation rates, test scores, spelling bees and science fairs, average salary...my eleven year old has been to many Tea Party rallies. She also speaks fluent Portuguese, plays piano and trumpet, and scored in the top half of the 99th percent in the state educational assessment that is required of all kids in the state.
You might want to cool your jets before asserting the superiority of union-dominated public schools. They are the intellectual slums of the nation. Many teachers put their own kids in private schools rather than their own!
