Comment: In my experience with a local tea party

In my experience with a local tea party

they claimed to represent ideals that I shared: Constitutionally-limited government, a free market economy, and fiscal responsibility. And they did believe in and promote those! It just turned out that they weren't necessarily a priority. An area heavily Catholic, at election time it seemed the abortion issue trumped all others.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
