A poll that delves into the workings of the Tea Party movement has been released by the University of Washington. It attempts to distinguish between the core of the TP, and those who are more moderate in their views of it.
- They are very hostile to immigrants.
- They don’t have much sympathy with African–Americans.
- They hate marriage equality.
This in part shows why the TP’s claim of wanting a “small government” is such a fraud and is anything but libertarian. They only care about taxes and spending, but can’t get enough of government when it comes to snooping in people’s sex lives. This is especially stunning in how they are against giving same–sex couples the tax benefits of marriage, which is equivalent to not cutting their taxes. I thought the TP hated taxes! I guess it must not be the case for people they dislike.
