There are two main groups who make up the TeaParty.
One of them is not the racists. Sure, there is a lot of TeaPartiers who are afraid of losing white privilege, but they are older people living in fear. The racist are a loud ignorant minority, whether in the TeaParty or not.
The two main sects in the TeaParty are the libertarians and the crazed fundis.
The libertarians believe in legalizing drugs, gambling, and prostitution.
The libertarians believe a woman has a right to an abortion.
The libertarians believe that people have a right to marry who they want.
*********On the other hand, you have the crazed fundamentalists.
They want a Bible based government. Not just the Bible, but their own narrow interpretation of the Bible.
You would think that these two groups wouldn't want to be in the same room with each other.
Do you really want to see a TeaParty run country?
Look at Iran.
A country run by crazed nationalists, and wacko fundamentalists.
