The Tea Party has been corrupted by the sort of economic industrialists who made up the John Birch Society. These economic masters do not fear job losses, they do not fear another great depression, they do fear the government and they don’t want to pay taxes for a government they perceive as illegitimate. The Tea Party masters (not the rank and file), are selectively anti-government. They are anti-taxes, but apparently pro law enforcement even when that law enforcement is corrupted by judges who take bribes, by laws made up to favor their class, their corporations, their family businesses and social structures.
Obama has taken a very popular stance that a government should be made up of shared sacrifice. We all have to contribute to making America better, stronger. In order to do this Obama wants to raise revenues as well as cuts so that the growth pains are felt by every American. The Tea Party masters have made it apparent that they do not want to feel the pain of America.
The Tea Party in general, in significant numbers, has individuals within it who do not believe Barack Obama is really an American citizen, they don’t believe Barack Obama is Christian enough, and believe him to be Muslim. This sends the subliminal message to their followers that Barack Obama is not the legitimate President of the United States. If he isn’t then who is it that these Tea Party members believe to be the real President of the United States? Ron Paul? Rick Perry?
Do they believe Glenn Beck and Alex Jones that the Illuminati controls the planet? I find it interesting that many Tea Party members fear the mysterious Illuminati but they don’t fear the Koch Bro’s or Murdoch even after the hacking scandal.
