    Here in Az. it is easy to think that there is not a liberal in the state. It is a point of pride to be a tea party member or birther. A friend of mine has now started her own tea party chapter and is quite proud of herself. She thinks she is doing God's work. She is working with local politicians and feels quite important. Posts links filled with the most absurd claims. No attempt to offer facts sway her or her friends, they have no interest in the truth. The groups she has joined on FB range from right wing to down right scary. Everyone from skinheads to militia minded hate groups. This is all from one of the most religious women you will ever meet. These people will turn into pit vipers when you try to explain that George Washington did not want to be king. Oh and when I say scary, I mean scary. These people finally feel important, they threaten that blood will run like rivers and that the President(of course they don't use that term)must be stopped. The sense of power that they feel is intoxicating. Sorry for the long comment, It just really seems dangerous and Fox News is the source of choice for these people.
