re: #464 Charles

Unfortunately, it’s not a “fantasy” at all. At the recent tea party in DC, signs glorifying Glenn Beck were everywhere.

And then … there’s this:


Somewhat righ/left leaning focus group members are going to feel empowered or disenfranchised by virtue of their party being in or out of power. Those out of power will express irrational fears like the right are now and like the left did under Bush. There is a far way to go from there to violent mob actions.

I still don’t buy the meme that the Tea Parties or even the Republican party as currenty comprised represent the conservative base. I think there is a large civil middle that would love to see more limited government that is not out protesting or forming mobs.
