It’s not surprising that Obama supporters fear the tea party more than radical Muslims ["Tea party called 'top terror threat' in U.S."]. Just consider the recent vote on immigration reform in the Senate. Only Republicans unaffiliated with the tea party voted in favor of the legislation. That’s because the tea party understands the demographic tilt in voting behavior will institutionalize IRS targeting, unrestricted abortions, unrestrained spending, unbridled privacy intrusions, liberalized marriage definitions, continued affirmative action and encourage judicial activism. Those same Obama supporters understand that the new demographic landscape after the immigration bill will advance their cause and will permanently force the GOP and the tea party into the minority.
GOP supporters of the Senate bill should be considered party traitors and run out of the party.
