Oh, David...why must you hate freedom so very much. Don't you understand that government knows what's best for you?

Clearly the Tea Party, which is all about less government (right?), is in a much better position to understand what it takes to protect your freedom than you. Clearly the Republicans, who are all about cutting inefficient government costs (right?), have only your independence in mind when they are voting. And, of course, the Democrats, who are all about liberty, honesty and fairness (right?), want only your happiness as a result of their policies.

Freedom ain't free, you know. Sometimes you have to sacrifice things, like liberty, independence, your property, your income, your future, and your health, in order to preserve your freedom (as defined by the political parties). Maybe you should just pack up your pinko commie socialist thoughts about unencumbered freedom and liberty and go live somewhere in the Middle East for a while. Then you'd really appreciate just how super great and completely infallible the U.S. government is....oh, wait...nevermind.

(Wow, I had no idea my tongue could go quite that far into my cheek)

Oh...also, I would just like to push out as a reminder to the fine people of Wisconsin...former Senator Russ Feingold stood alone in the Senate in opposition to the original "Patriot Act", declaring it to be the antithesis of freedom and an affront civil liberties. The 2001 vote was 99 to 1 in favor.

He voted against the appointment of Timothy Geithner; voted in favor of expanded firearms rights for citizens; continually championed causes that favored the populace over the state.

 And you chose to vote the guy out...one of the only independent voices in our government. Way to go.

What happened to you, Wisconsin? You used to be cool! You used to have a proud tradition of progressive beliefs that extended liberty for all (just think of Joshua Glover and how you fought the Fugitive Slave Act.

Now look at you. You've changed.

That was a high quality rant. I'd put that up there with my best.

OP.  The Tea Parties are about cutting spending.  Since they do not have an official position on the patriot act, it is not surprising that members voted on both sides of the issues.

3.  Feingold wrote laws designed to limit political speach.  He was also involved in a vast number of big government policies, including those which contributed to the recent banking/housing disaster.  I do not know if his replacement is better, but he is far from a champion of freedom.

dbella,  

Four sides, I am Green party.

David,

I called, you did not.

Turf,

I always respected Russ Feingold too.

Melascham,

They ran on freedom, and small Gov't. They did not deliver this time.

I heard the word "freedom" spoken an awful lot last year.

The word "equality" has seen some serious neglect.

Badly. Tomorrows will go better.

Devoish,   The first Tea Partier you listed who voted yes was Adams.  Sandy Adams has demonstrated her commitment to responsible spending, strong border protection and national defense, and pro-growth policies.   

Generally speaking politicians who campaign on strong national defense are not assumed to oppose the Patriot Act.   The very first person you claim has turned against her promises, has actually voted the way she campaigned on this issue. 

I could go through the whole list, and perhaps find one person who flipped on this issue, or perhaps they are all consistent.  But I think I have made my point.  The tea parties did not take a stance on this issue, so it is no surprise that tea party candidates fall on both sides of the debate.

Unfortunately most of the 'mainstream' media has been misrepresenting the Tea Parties since they launched. 

If you go to the actual tea parties and their websites, it is clear that they are all about cutting spending and reducing regulations.  That does not mean that they are all anarchists who want zero government. 

The Tea Parties are mostly made up from two groups, libertarians and conservatives.  These two groups are about equal in size within the tea party movement, but even within the two groups there are many different opinions.  One of the biggest differences between a conservative and a libertarian is foriegn/military policy. 

I hope this helps clarify what the tea parties really are.

PS  I am not a member of any tea party group because I consider other issues to be more important than cutting government spending, but I am sympathetic to their cause.

Could you please point out the parts of the Patriot Act that accomplishes either of those things?
