Liberals and the Tea Party

I think the reason liberals have such hatred for and no understanding of, the tea party, is simply because there is really no such thing.

There are no membership rolls. There are no dues. There are no hired lobbyists. There are no real leaders.

Contrast this with what the left has to call “grassroots” and you can see why they react to the tea parties like they would if they woke up to a giraffe in their bed tomorrow morning.

    I think because they are generally inured to the reprucussions of a multi-trillion dollar debt, they can’t imagine that this would be the reason millions of people of disparate political bents and philosophies would rally together against the current state of government. So they imagine a much more sinister motivation they can understand.

    I keep hearing how tea partiers are this or that, and the very few rallies I’ve attended made it quite clear that they are not anything. Some are pretty liberal, the majority are more conservative but even there, the bulk is made up of what everyone would call moderates.

    I think what’s happened is all of these people have come together over fiscal issues and don’t care about the social stuff. Than many of the people who run for office, who are willing to tackle those issues in a truly meaningful way, also happen to be socially conservative, thus when the tea partiers back candidate A…

    But than those of us who actually know whats going on know that it isn’t anything to do with social issues.

    What has the Tea Party really accomplished? The only so-called fiscal issues they’ve bothered with have to do with hurting Democrats, i.e., as if busting unions will make a contribution to debt reduction. Other than that they’ve pretty exclusively been about social issues, revealing what everyone else has already known: they’re composed of highly conservative members of the Republican party.

    What do they need to accomplish? They got a huge bloc elected to congress, just not enough to do anything, takes a little over 200 last I checked.

    As far as unions go, I love unions, as long as they have to play by the same rules and have competition, otherwise we have nothing but a monopoly. Collective bargaining was curtailed so localities could also deal with their issues. There may or may not have been another motive, but that’s the result and its for the better.

    I don’t know who the hell ever thought requiring non-union employee’s to pay union dues, in any amount, was a good idea but it’s certainly a positive that you no longer have to do so.

    You are still missing the real point. They aren’t made up of the republican party. How many rallies have you been to to investigate you claim?
