Recently the Tea Party has become an accelerated political party. The midterm election will show whether the Tea Party will stand as a new national party. Flying the the words “Don’t tread on me” stem from the control of government on it’s citizens. However, over time theses party members not only want freedom form government control, but they also strive to perfect our immigration issues. Since the core of the Tea Party seems to be conservative the ideology sets in there as well. Hot topic social issues such as a woman’s right to choose, the legalization of marijuana and the relationships of homosexuals recognized my the state.

So… Does the slogan “Don’t tread on me” still hold an honest tune? I understand the freedom wanted, but, please Tea Party don’t tread on me.

 

Where did the Tea Party come from:
“The Tea Party movement … would never have come about if it weren’t for the fact that the public lost confidence in both political parties,” Sal Russo of the Tea Party Express told CNN. Russo is a longtime Republican operative and chief strategist at the Express. Some have called him the Tea Party’s Karl Rove.

 

“You know, sometimes people will say, ‘Well, why did you get started only under Obama?’ ” Russo said. “Well it didn’t. It started in terms of people’s unhappiness, really — in the second term of the Bush administration, where, you know, the government … kept growing and deficits kept increasing.”

After going to my first Tea Party rally last Spring I was incredibly surprise to see the composition of the group. There were man ignorant bigots present, but at the same time there were levelheaded individuals with some interesting points of view.
