"Tea Party insurgents prepare to seize power in 2012

Misunderstood and misrepresented, the Tea Party is a genuinely democratic movement with growing political power, argues Toby Harnden

".......A desire for small government, lower taxes and fidelity to the United States Constitution binds members together. There is a prevailing mood of anger towards Washington and a sense of having been conned. Mention the $700 billion (£448 billion) bailout, health care reform or cap and trade legislation and they will go into conniptions.

But beyond that, the Tea Party is a vast, teeming muddle of opinion and impulses. Many of its strong supporters don't attend public meetings. "The Tea Party is more an attitude than anything organised," one Southern conservative told me........."

"We have been silent for too long, enjoying the American life and giving our kids what we can," she said.

She has that right. When times are good the people have jobs available and making money. With that available most of the people do not bother with politics. They could care less who is elected as long as the good times keep rolling along.

Thanks JAP! So many people don't like to rock the boat so long as the boat isn't sinking. What's happening politically and economically could in the long run be the best thing that's happened to this nation since its founding.

Thanks Em! Think what we're seeing is a massive transformation the metaphysical community has been talking about. However many were duped by disinformation as to who would bring it about. Looks like it's collective consciousness we're seeing in action as grass roots movements such as the TEA Party ..... not an incompetent unqualified spouting hope and change. Under the current regime it's been all change, no hope anywhere.
