What I don’t understand about Tea Party conservatives.

What I don’t understand about Tea Partier conservatives:

They are opposed to any increase in taxes. But how do they expect to pay for all the unfunded wars? If a war is worth fighting, isn’t it worth taxing to pay for? Is nothing worth taxing for – not even national security?

Why do they think cuts which hurt the poor & elderly are more desirable than raising taxes to pay our debts? What are their human values?

The new word from Beckian, Tea Party Republicans who have suddenly decided the root of all our woes is Woodrow Wilson (I’m not joking here) is to take a step backwards from democratic elections and repeal the 17th Amendment.

I think these people are imbibing something a lot stronger than tea.
