Right-wing tea partiers…. Ta da!
February 15th, 2010 by Sam

Do they seem thoughtful?  Do they check out the facts?  Have they done their homework?  Do the dots they are connecting even exist??

But their vision of the federal government is frequently at odds with the one that both parties have constructed. Tea Party gatherings are full of people who say they would do away with the Federal Reserve, the federal income tax and countless agencies, not to mention bailouts and stimulus packages. Nor is it unusual to hear calls to eliminate Social SecurityMedicare and Medicaid. A remarkable number say this despite having recently lost jobs or health coverage. Some of the prescriptions they are debating — secession, tax boycotts, states “nullifying” federal laws, forming citizen militias — are outside the mainstream, too.  New York Times, February 15, 2010
