Tea Partying It Up

The Tea Partys are coming of age.

Scowling lefties can call the movement "teabaggers", "angry", whatever. Fact is, the core of the tea party movement is one that unifies a lot of people. While viewing tea party signage there is no doubt a lot of signage espousing the whole range of conservative causes, it is not those causes that are the root of its success.

The original tea party was about taxes and hence spending. This one is similarly rooted in taxation and spending policy. Tea Party leaders need to remember this, keep your rallies focused on limiting government taxation and spending.
