  •  The core demand of the Tea Party (0+ / 0-)

    has always been to control government spending.  It is a cause that represents moral integrity,  regardless of their other ridiculous positions and the GOP's hypocrisy on the issue.  

    Ironically, given that most Tea Party supporters are climate denialists, it is an important issue from an environmental point of view.  As long as the Fed is cooking the books to keep our carbon based economy growing as they have been since 2007, the longer we wait to make serious carbon reductions that are necessary to prevent runaway global warming.

      controlling government spending represents moral integrity.

      That's a serious misuse of the terms moral and integrity in my book.  Controlling government spending is simply an economic position.  There's no moral or integrity involved, particularly in the forms that they choose to exercise this position.
