19. No way. The Tea Party is a very AMERICAN phenomenon.
Edited on Sun Oct-24-10 07:04 PM by denem
The rebel yell circa 1864 meets the Guided age. It's as simple as one step forward two steps back - Roll back the New Deal and the Square deal, bankrolled all the way. It's not pretty, but has a impressive American lineage. USA USA USA.
