Intrestingly enough, HoboMaster brings light to some of the most prudent issues which prevent the ship from righting itself, as it were. The Tea Party Movement is a grassroots movement, not centered around a particular candidate or party, but of a particular bundle philosophies, which under scrutiny, actually would seem to resonate with a great number of Americans: fiscal responsibility, reduced taxation, large scale withdrawl of overseas military presence, increased personal responsibility and personal freedom for the individual, less micromanagement by the Federal Government and the overall replacement of public program with self-sufficiency of the individual.
Yet, what image is attached to the Tea Party? The most prominent association is with the traditional GOP sect without question. Yet, the GOP only rides the coattails of a movement which encompasses far more than they have in common. The GOP tends to represent reduced taxation but obstinently increased government programming in certain areas and military expansionism.
This is the biggest problem in America. You have two choices, but the choices are just between which flavor of shit you'd rather suffer. Both of the major choices for the political spectrum want increased government programming but just in different spectrums.
There is no choice for less government. The only choices are what type of government you want more of.
