on Tea Party
The answer is not free markets. I will never trust free markets to provide for or solve any problems because citizens always get ripped off when regulation decreases. Business cannot be trusted. In America this has always been the case since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. The size of government is large because the business elite and the power elite cannot be trusted.
So when you look at your child and wake up to reality (what took you so long) as what they will be shouldered with, you should stop and think about how much you consume and what you think you deserve. We are not free to do whatever we want. We have to work together to be in balance. There are other people on the planet, not just white 45 year olds or so. The tea party seems to be only concerned with individual wealth and not about those that are without.
Growth and consumption is the backdrop of the tea party movement not balance.
