I've attended a couple of rallies. They are everyday folks, tired of the progressive tax and spenders from both the Republican and Democratic parties. Tired of a new flurry of governmental regulations every year that just make living more expensive for everyone, tired of government micro management, tired of the entitlement programs, tired of spending billions on foreign aid to countries who hate the United States.

I other words, people who stand for Real Change.

Do you find them to emphasize the constitutionality of these subjects?

So far as I can tell, I like what they stand for... Pretty much the stuff that Scott mentioned.

I think they are going to be problematic in the next election. They wont get elected, but what they will do is steal votes from republicans further perpetuating the back and forth bipartisan game we've been playing for to long.

Tea Party Politics are going to put Sarah Palin on the ballot. If/When that happens, she'll split the GOP vote in 2012 and Obama wins a second term. Congress maintains its left/right balance in 2012, perhaps shifting slightly further right. Congress moves decidedly right in 2014. The GOP, having re-re-learned the necessity of a unified party, will adopt most of the tea party rhetoric and win the White House in 2016. Congress moves left in 2018. If the left gains congressional majority in 2018, the GOP wins the presidency and regains congress in 2020; if the left fails to gain a majority in 2018, its a landslide victory for Dems in 2020.

If Palin does NOT run, it's a tossup in 2012, and the next 8 years are pretty tough to predict.

I agree. It's so predictable it's scary.

The tea party as as mixed up as the republicans, they claim to be on certain sides at certain points even if it conflicts with what they said.

for example the mixing of religion into the tea party, this is nothing more then some very wealthy people pushing for even lower taxes and the american people bending right over and saying, sure we will pay more to make up for it
