I've never been to a Tea Party, and I deplore the racist remarks made by some partiers in D.C.
However, more than half of Americans approve of the movement and 62% say it has the right amount or not enough influence on the Republican Party. (I read an AP article.)
There are indeed probably some fringe types who party, but if so many people approve of it, it is the fringe?
The group recently arrested for plotting to kill police are indeed the fringe. Every article I read about it points out that they called themselves Christian. If a guy named Mohammad is arrested for terrorist plots in America, his religion is not mentioned.
I am a Christian, but I do not count myself as part of any group to which the police plotters are members.
I don't like the subtle connections being made by the media and Certain Famous People.
And then there is Israel.
I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you."
The United Socialist States of America appears to be heading for trouble.
I find Sarah Palin an embarrassment for several reasons, but I do agree with her that We Need to Take Our Country Back.
