This writer seems not to realize that the Tea Party is a coalition of Christian conservatives and so-called 'libertarians." Some of us Tea Party supporters are pro-choice, pro open immigration, pro gay marriage, pro drug legalization. Many such as myself are also gay and atheists. What makes the coalition work is what we have in common--our pro-capitalism. If the Tea Party should ever come to power, it will be the task of its non-conservative members to convince its conservative members to rediscover the principle of individual rights and become pro-liberty.
