Once the hypocritical tendencies of the TP were shown, I realized that while they meant well, there is just way too much funny in there. If you like the tea party but want to forgo all the hypocrisy, just go libertarian or constitutionalism.
I'd be happy to opt out of both Medicare and SS if they'd let me keep that money each month and let me invest it as I see fit.
I've never met a Tea Party supporter who wanted the Feds to give us more money for our state's roads, so not sure where you're going with that.
