Question: I have to write a research paper on the current tea party movement for my US History class. I have to start by comparing 3 different reputable sources views on the tea party and the question "how closely does the tea party represent the founding fathers ideals?" Does anyone know of any books, scholarly journals, etc. that have opposing views on the tea party I can use? * what is the most accurate/reputable tea party website? The one that most accurately identifies their platform?

Here's some research and polling data that may be useful: ============================= Excerpts from the Christian Science Monitor article / Gallop poll / CBS poll on Tea Party & Republican followers: “In general, the concerns of people who describe themselves as tea party followers are not much different from those who identify themselves as Republicans, notes Gallup. Sixty-three percent say they get the majority of their political and current events news on television from the Fox News Channel, compared to 23 percent of Americans overall. Twenty percent of Americans overall, one in five believes the president was not born in the United States. Asked to volunteer what they don't like about Mr. Obama, the top answer was that they just don't like him. Thirty percent of Tea Party supporters believe Mr. Obama was born in another country, despite ample evidence to the contrary. Another 29 percent say they don't know. Eighty-eight percent disapprove of President Obama, compared to 40 percent of Americans overall. Fifty-two percent believe too much has been made of the problems facing black people. This survey found that only 35 percent of tea party adherents rated African-Americans as “hard-working.” Among whites who disapprove of the tea party, the comparable figure was 55 percent. Some 45 percent of tea partiers judged African-Americans “intelligent,” according to the University of Washington poll. By comparison, 59 percent of anti-tea party whites viewed African-Americans as intelligent.” - http://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Politics/20... http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-2...

Phillida Originally Answered: I am having black and white new year's eve party . . . does anyone have great ideas for the party?
Tell your guests to wear black and white but to be creative with their outfits. You might end up with guests in black bathing suits, tuxedos, sweat suits, etc. That would be fun. Keep your color scheme black and white but add another color, maybe gold, for an accent. For invitations: Write your party details on a plain white card and place in an evenlope filled with confetti. You can mail or hand deliver. How about Champagne glass invitations? Buy some cheap plastic ones and write your party details on it with a black permanent marker. Tie some colorful coloring to the stems and hand deliver or mail in small boxes. If you hand deliver consider filling the glasses with candies. Or write your party details in black in on a white card, and glue the white card onto a slightly larger black card. You can punch holes and embellish with ribbon. Or even make your own newspaper invitation using headlines from the past 12 months. With your party the main headline. For decorations: Lots of black and white......streamers, plates, napkins, ballons, cups....everything lol..... Fill deflated ballons with large spoonfuls of confetti. Simply insert a funnel into the mouth of the balloons before filling with helium. Take the ballons to a party goods store to be inflated or buy a prefilled tank and do it yourself. Some party goods stores have them for rent and if not Wal-Mart sells prefilled tanks. Tie the balloons shut with long ribbon and allow them to float around the cieling. At midnight simply pull one down by the ribbon and pop over a friend's head. Make sure you have plenty of hats, horns, and other noisemakers. Since it is a black and white party I would serve......black and white food. Food dye can help with turning regular food into black colored food. Serve virgin Pina Coladas and chocolate flavored coffee. I am assuming you want activities too? "When did it happen?" Pick out 12 events or OBCSCURE holidays and have your guests write down the month they think it happened in. "Predictions" There are several ways you could play this. You could give each guest 5 other guests name to write a prediction about you can have them funny or serious. Have everyone read theirs aloud and give a prize for the one the guests vote the most and least likely to come true. A variation is you, the hostess, makes enough predications for each guest to have one, funny or serious, and have a small gift that corresponds with each one. Have each guests pick one out and read it. They then get the gift that corresponds with their prediction. Have a white elephant exchange. Ask each guest to select the worst, ugliest, or most useless present they recieved. Have them wrap it beautifully and bring it to the party. Place all the gifts on the table. Have the oldest guest select a gift and unwrap it for all to admire. Then the next oldest gets to make a choice, open a new gift or take one that has already been opened. If they chose to take an opened gift simply have the person either open another, if you chose to allow people who had their gifts opened chose to take another opened gift you need to set up some kind of rule. That is your choice. Continue until all the gifts have been opened. If you want have people say which "gift" the brought. Ask your guests to make a list of phrases that have to do with black or white. "We're finally in the black." "She turned as white as a ghost." Have the person with the longest list read theirs aloud and have the other guests read off any they have that thwe winner did not. You can give a prize to the one with the longest list. You might even want to give a prize to guest who had phrases the winner did not. Prizes/Favors: Books about Astrology or predicting the future Clock Humerous Calender for the new year Diet Book Bottle of Champange Fancy coffee mug with a packet of coffee and ansprin inside Bag of fortune cookies Funny list of predictions personalized for each guest (a great do it yourself gift) Quit smoking or other vice book Packet of seeds to plant for the new year Alka Seltzer Poloroid pictures taken during the party. The Newsweeks "Year in Review" rolled and tied with beautiful ribbon (black and white of course) Hope this helps!! And there is nothing wrong with planning in advance. It allows you to spread out your spending over a longer period of time. Enjoy your party!!

No. the recent approach of the Dems, headed through B.Clinton, is to discredit the Tea party. they are scared after the Scott Brown election. The NYTimes already wrote an editorial about the Tea party that became finished of lies. The progressives are using Saul Alinsky tactic #13. also, no longer anybody contained in the Tea party has the very similar perspectives on authorities or social liberalism. the component we've in basic is small authorities and reduce taxes.

Unfortunately, you'll have to start with a book on abnormal psychology and work your way to political science. The current "Tea Party" is an invalid mob of losers who take their cue from a misdirected resurgence of racism, social isolationism and class warfare. I would have given them much more credit if their outrage had extended to all forms of governmental impropriety and fiscal misappropriation. However, they only creep out from under their slimy rocks when it's about Obama. When the Repubs added 700B worth of debt to our national debt, these hypocrites remained silent; when a Democratic congresswoman was shot in the head by a deranged man, the tea party remained silent. They're not legitimate, nor should they be recognized as such.

No it is new and grass roots. There are none that say Tea Party specifically that I am aware of. They would have to be relatively new.

Jenni Originally Answered: Do my beliefs fit in more with the Democrat Party or the Green Party?
You don't necessarily have to fit into either the "Democrat" or "Green Party" boxes. However, you seem VERY strongly democratic. By the way, why do you want to get rid of the SAT and ACT? Colleges need at least some kind of test to distinguish students, beyond their grades and extracurriculars. I'm NOT saying the SAT/ACT tests determine one's intelligience; like I said before, it's one of the ways for kids to distinguish themselves to college admissions, like grades. Are you saying grades don't matter either? If you start taking away these indicators, high school students would pretty much all look the same, right? That's great that you found an option that works for you. However, I don't think that justifies getting rid of the entire standardized test system for everybody. I'll be voting age in 2012 too. I'm an independent and looking forward to voting :) EDIT: Wait, so you support tighter restrictions on illegal immigration, but you want to make it easier for poor people to come here? The people crossing the border illegally ARE the poor people who want to come here! You can't have the best of both worlds! As much as I would like people from all over the world to have better lives, it's just not feasible for the US to do alone. Sure, we can help Mexico, but it would also take millions of tax payer dollars. IMO, before we do that, we have to make sure everyone here at home is well taken care of. Obviously that's not the case, as unemployment rates and homelessness indicate.
