11. Actually, most European countries do have a version of the tea party, but

you are right their countries are much more progressive in general and protect/promote their unions.

France has their right-wing National Front which promotes tariffs and more limits on immigration. The National Front lost to the Socialists who are not anti-immigrant and in favor of trade. The UK has its far-right UKIP which wants the UK to withdraw from the EU so that it can limit immigration from Europe and put tariffs on goods from Europe. Other countries have similar right-wing parties though they are fairly small in most countries.
