on Tea Party
I have seen what the Tea Party stands for, smaller government, lower taxes, balanced budget, etc.., but no where have I seen a plan for how those goals are to be achieved. There seems to be no desire to outline just how the government will be reduced in size, how the national debt will be paid, and how "freedoms" will be "restored". The movement seems to have only one true goal at the moment, that of expunging Democrats and centrist Republicans from Congress and the White House. Until someone representing the Tea Bag party can begin to outline how they will solve problems rather than exploiting them to win political talking-points, their party will never be taken seriously.
