There is much talk about the extreme positions or the radicalism of the Tea Party candidates. Evidently most of the media and the political establishment do not “get it.” The Tea Party candidates are not running on extreme or radical views, even though some of them hold such, no, the Tea Party candidates are running on a platform of reduced government spending. Period.
Reduced government spending…for most of us this is common sense. Only people and organizations completely out of touch with the current reality can consider this radical. I say to the Tea Party candidates: “stick to your principles and rock on!”.
