The Tea Party is consistently (and generally inaccurately, as finally shown here http://www.cnn.com/2010/POLITICS/04/07/tea.party.r...) depicted in the mainstream media as a group of rednecks, racists, and/or morons. In reality though, polls have shown the make-up to be relatively educated, inclusive of minorities, and not very radical or extreme at all.
The Tea Party basically stands for lower taxes, fiscal responsibility, and a smaller Federal government. Aren't these all policies most people on Wall Street would support? What about the people on this forum?
