What things are the Tea Party trying to change? I know they want the national debt brought down.

I get mail from them all the time but never open it due to the fact that I'm hearing from way too many people already. Thanks for answering. Just want to know in a nutshell. Please no insults.

Most Tea Party members are all about not only bringing down debt but smaller government, more limited reach of the government. Also less taxes and helping not hurting small businesses who fuel the economy. Protecting our freedoms and constitutional rights and keeping government limited. could go ion forever. Google it

Okay, thanks! Good summary. I did know about those particular things. By the way, I get Newsmax magazine. I think the Tea Party is good and Sarah Palin too, and the others that speak for it.

We don't have to go back to the wild west in order to clean up some of the severe damage Obama has done!

I honestly think our government could be better but I don't believe in the claims that we have no "Freedom"

we have more money and freedom then 50%+ of the world, and getting rid of all taxes and such would really cause a collapse but If you believe in it, that's fine too.

We have freedom as we see it now, but it has been slowly seeping away in the areas of schools, and many other things, too many to even think aboutl The gov. has been spending way too much money and even sent billions to the terrorists in Egypt. It's a total miracle the non-Muslims managed to overtake the gov. The Muslim Brotherhood is treacherous.

Based on what I seen on the signs around town I don't think change is what they want to see happen. They speak out about the change that has happen and future change that disrupts our constitutional rights. What makes us different than other countries is our constitution rights. No one else has this. Our forefathers fought for this. My own father fought for us. Greed/power/control is given less to the people and more to the ones we had put in charge the LESS we have this document. We the people are unbalanced and become takers vs. givers. If we stay balances we stand, If not we tilt to far we fall, we hurt, we look weak, truth is as one sided says it is. Tea Party is not changing as I see it, its keeping what we have based on what is on their signs if you read them. We the people sure look complacent at times. We need both sides but sure does look like a one sided wall instead of a fence.

Keeping what we have? But we lost it because of Obama. We are now sliding down a cliff of destruction.

Yep, just as I was saying about our Constitution. Keeping it. That's what we have! Blaming one man? but then if you do you leave out so many that deserve to share in as you say 'destruction'.

Obama has been moving us rapidly towards Communism. He lies constantly. You ought to listen to FOX news or get the Newsmax magazine and you'd find out a lot you didn't know.

Binaural

In a way they want change, but not a change from our constitution and our founding principles/beliefs. They want to change our current America--high taxes, big bloated government with too much power, wealth redistribution/socialism garbage, more personal liberty, more self responsibility. Contrary to what the mainstream media and foolish liberals say about them, they are middle class, hard working people who enjoy freedom and support the constitution. The media and the loyal liberal voters don't have a clue what the TEA Party represents. The left does to them what they do to anyone who opposes them--they call them hate mongers who are racist, sexist, hate the poor, elderly, children, women and all the other liberal rhetoric.
