This is one of the reasons many liberals were originally behind the Tea Party idea. Some argue Ron Paul was the real founder of the Tea Party, but the point is the people who were involved in the Tea Party when it was started do not like what it has become. The Republican party hijacked the whole idea.
Quote:
Denninger writes: "Tea Party my ass. This was nothing other than the Republican Party stealing the anger of a population that was fed up with the Republican Party's own theft of their tax money at gunpoint to bail out the robbers of Wall Street and fraudulently redirecting it back toward electing the very people who stole all the ****ing money!"


Also, if you aren't familiar with the idea of a government Monetizing debt, look it up. He talks about it in the article. "Not one word about Bernanke's out-of-control Fed and the arguably unlawful monetization of Fannie and Freddie paper, not to mention the monetization of the Federal Debt"
