Ron Paul, your boy Rand just introduced Personhood Legislation, which is unconstitutional (there goes the old saw about how the Tea Party are defenders of the constitution) as it would ban abortion (a constitutionally protected right) and most forms of birth control. Tea Party favorite Marco Rubio, also introduced anti-choice legislation. Both Rand Paul and Rubio are both opposed to marriage equality. What do abortion and marriage equality have to do with fiscal conservatism?
It seems to me you Tea Baggers want small government when it comes to regulating things like business and the environment, but you want a massive government to insure that only your approved type of people can marry, and you want government to insure only your approved outcome to every sexual encounter, whether it be forced or voluntary. Tell me again how you Tea Baggers are Fiscal Conservatives and not Social Conservatives? Hippocrates is more like it.
Maybe at one time the Tea Party was a grassroots organization, but you've been coopted by big money, and no you do the bidding of people like the Koch Bros.
The Tea Party claims to be fiscal conservatives, but don't let that fool you, they are in bed with the old "Moral Majority" social conservatives. Why do you think the "War on Women" meme from the Democrats was so powerful, because it was true! Nothing fiscally conservative about banning or limiting women's access to abortion or birth control.
Tea Party candidates like Sharon Angle, Todd Akin, Richard Mourdock and Christine O'Donnell have helped to keep the Democrats in power. All were much more socially conservative than they were fiscally conservative, but all were Tea Party approved, and ran under that banner.
Poor Ron, I hate to burst your bubble, but nobody fears the Tea Party least of all the Democrats. We're just cheering them on as they push the Republican Party further out of the mainstream, tear the party apart as they fight with the establishment and push the party further toward oblivion.
