If the Tea Party understood American history, they would see that they are conflicted. They continuously tout the Constitution but fail to realize that the framers of that great document were concerned about the very radical rabble rousing that the Tea Party is known for.

The framers of the Constitution wanted a country where the government promoted interstate commerce. They believed that sources of the passionate rumblings we are hearing should be kept in check so that the flow of commerce that we desperately need today could occur. None of their rhetoric, from concerns about restoring “honor” to whether Barack Obama is, according to Ben Quayle, the worst president ever, is of any use or serve the purpose for which this nation was founded.

The Tea Party is just as bad as the left wing fringe. They have taken a property interest in the culture wars, the very wars that the founders of the nation wanted to avoid. For this reason, the Tea Party is dangerous to the American social fabric and our market system.
