The tea party wants smaller goverment and less taxes and they are demonized. The Democrats are even worse (think higher taxes, Obama Care and even more Govrnment spending). I do admit that there are some Republicans who are Democrate lights and that is why they loose elections. Obama won because he was giving peopkle stuff. Someday the bill will come due. He complained about Bushes deficit of 4 trillion in 8 years but he ran up 6 trillion in 4 years.
