The Tea Party is not part of the mostly corrupt, Moderate/Progressive, Republican Party. Isn't it curious as to why some people are assuming this?
People always assume the worse about things that they don't understand. Also people do not like change....oh yea though, they embraced Obama for HIS change.....he really said Chains and they just didn't hear that......but, they are feeling it Now.Aren't we all.?
It's probably because the Tea Party is not a national political party as such.But rather a movement of grassroots conservative libertarianism and an example of "astroturfing".
