The Tea Party Movement has grown quickly as an American grass root movement aided by social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook. The loyal following grew to include many who felt excessive taxes and spending were leading to the country’s demise. The Tea Party believes in eliminating national debt, reducing the overall size of government and the U.S. Constitution as the supreme law of the land. Without exception the Tea Party upholds citizens rights to keep and bear arms. Key members of the movement include, Ron Paul, Sarah Palin, Marco Rubio, Michele Bachmann and Paul Ryan. The Tea Party Movement and the democratic Obama administration represent the classic conflict between “conservative” and “liberal” philosophies. This conflict plays out everyday in America’s “media” market place. How will the Tea Party change America?
