The world seems split in twain these days.

I wonder if previous generations could have imagined an America where a group like the Tea Party would be vilified by so many of its citizens?

The Tea Party has been very open and clear from the beginning what it’s about, and it has been mercilessly attacked for it.

The Occupy Wall Street movement, when it could find the ability to articulate any goals, has stood up for everything that is opposed to American traditions, yet it is glorified and held up as a model for others.

The OWS movement is about redistribution of wealth, the growth of a permanent underclass and the establishment of an authoritarian government that will “look after” the details of individuals’ lives and deaths. It’s socialism, and it’s President Obama.

The Tea Party stands for: lower taxes, constitutionally limited government and fiscal responsibility. It’s God-given liberty, and it’s the Founding Fathers.
