Senate majority leader Harry Reid identified the Tea Party movement as an arm of the anarchist movement albeit a less violent version of the political movement that blew up buildings in the early 20th century. Anarchists purport that organized entities of government to be undesirable, unnecessary, or harmful. Imagine that. Further imagine that for a nation of 330,000,000 people. One wonders if they
think believe that a society of that magnitude and diversity can coexist in peace and prosperity without a governmental framework. Like the old West when the sheriff leaves town.
I assume that Reid refers to a particular type of anarchy because anarchy is embraced by both far-left as well as far-right ideologists. Some form of libertarianism is my guess. Reid framed this as throwing a wrench into the cogs of government, essentially meaning that they are happy with the shutdown of government. Mindless masses, however, don’t fully understand the impact of that wish, especially the +65 faction of the Tea Party. No more Social Security and Medicare! WHAT?? Of course, they demand both while screaming to close other government programs [which do not affect them.]
There is the idiocy, simply stated. ‘I want mine, but you can’t have yours!’
These Tea Party nuts [my most kind metaphor] appear to be the typical, half-ass American dolt who has only a thimbleful of knowledge. Eager to absorb propaganda aimed their way, these useful idiots , especially the +65 set, want the entire pie and don’t give a damn if their grandkids get the empty plate. They are a disgrace to my generation.
