I just did precisely that.  I can only point you to the facts, I can't force you to read them or accept them.  There are those, like Solar, who prefer to remain ignorant because it spoils their preconceived and utterly ignorant delusions.  If you can't be bothered to click on a link to verify what I said was true or not, then you are a waste of time and just as delusional as Solar.

What you don't understand is that you ARE a WASTE of my Time.  As I see NO hard facts.   What I do see is an opinion piece by and for Libertarian.
A politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation.- James Freeman Clarke

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~

Did you even note the date on that POS opinion piece you posted? That's right, two whole years after TEA had been formed.
You see, had this been dated before 2010, you would have something significant, but that's the problem with emotional hacks, they can only post what they "FEEL", not what actually took place.
Damn those facts, always getting in the way of a good old fashioned rant.

Like I said, this is a fact based forum, and unless you  can back up your bullshit, the members will never take a single thing you say at face value, never!
Oh, one other point, opinion pieces are not acceptable as source material. This isn't Wiki or the LSM.

A reflection on this er................discussion; hopefully brief.
The Ancient Greeks understood that  the essence of politics involved
the control of power in their City/States.
Then around 400 BC, Plato, in his Republic, defined the Soul
as the differentiating attribute/impulse of Mankind, for all eternity.
Since Men are not and never would be equal; rule by those radiating
wisdom, were his preference for governing; in the form of oligarchy.
As Greece, along w/Rome, created Western Civilization they likely
knew a thing or two about human nature and the natural law.
Two thousand years later we began blessed w/the likes of Washington,
Jefferson, Madison; among the wise, but history has been unkind to us lately.
Our only principled conservative party was the Southern Agrarian & Rural
Democrats, unfortunately fatally tarred by slavery. Since then we have had
a succession of frauds and hustlers exercising the controls of power while
the vast majority of plain people remain cantankerous yet oblivious.
For all time, we get the governance we deserve and tolerate.
While the Tea Party flicker remains distant and dim; it radiates hope.
Suggesr we banish the "We are the greatest" horse manure and internalize
the reality that Greece and Rome endured and prospered for some thirteen
centuries leaving a legacy beyond breathtaking, while we are a tad past two!!!
