Remind me again why we care about the Tea Party people?
Sincerely confused and wondering,
Dear Sincerely Confused,
You are not the only person who has asked this question! I wonder where the Tea-baggers were when the Iraq War was sanctioned by Congress, spending billions of tax payer dollars for an occupation that was neither backed up by solid intelligence nor supported by the international community. Our country now suffers from the huge deficits associated with this expenditure. More than anything, what is also confusing, is the mainstream media's tendency to legitimize this extremist arm of the Republican party. When anti-war protesters fought against the Iraq War in 2003, the media marginalized the movement. We know now the protesters were the only ones who got it right about the war.
