I refuse to allow you to define the Tea Party in your own words!
> The "Tea Party" is for:
> government control of public morality
No it isn't. It is against the forcing of your morality upon me. That is freedom.
> limited access to things that won't kill you (birth control, for example)
No it isn't. It is against you enforcing your morality on me. My child cannot even have a tylenol at school yet can march right down to a supermarket and buy abortion in a bottle. Until that child is 18 that child is mine and you have NO right to force you morality upon me.
> free access to things that will (i.e. guns)
Funny the one thing that keeps people like you from 100 percent forcing your morality upon me is what I want. In this case you are damn right!
> They are for the freedom to limit other people's freedoms
Excuse me, the Tea Party simply wants the freedoms guaranteed by the US Constitution to be adhered to without regard to any qualifiers. You would qualify freedom.
> for the tyranny of the majority over the minority
We live in a Constitutional Republic. You obviously do notknow what that means. If we didn't I believe you probably would have seen the Tea Party restore it by now.
> Tea Partiers are all for government handouts when it suits them
Well that is simply a bald-faced lie. The Tea Party is diametrically opposed to handouts.
> Government: hands off my Social Security
Social Security is not a handout. I pay every paycheck for Social Security and I will be damned if you are gonig to take it away from me. It belongs to me. Not the government.
> They are also for massive subsidies to large corporations
Show me one shred of evidence. One shred. You are full of it.
