The Wall Street Journal is currently displaying “A Tea Party Manifesto” at the top of its website, and this thing includes a declaration of war on the Republican Party.
The tea party movement is not seeking a junior partnership with the Republican Party, but a hostile takeover of it.
After that relatively bold war-whoop, most of the rest of it is just about the sort of anti-government hate-speak that you might expect.
By definition, government is the means by which citizens are forced to do that which they would not do voluntarily. Like pay high taxes. Or redistribute tax dollars to bail out the broken, bloated pension systems of state government employees. Or purchase, by federal mandate, a government-defined health-insurance plan that is unaffordable, unnecessary or unwanted.
By definition! It couldn’t be more obvious! Only a fool would dispute these self-evident truths!
