The Tea Party Are Not Anarchists

I have to wonder if over-the-top name-calling is actually effective with anyone other than their base. Aside from the tastelessness of calling political opponents terrorists and hostage-takers, in the wake of the deadly and very real terrorist hostage massacre in Kenya and the Navy Yard shootings, don’t most Americans see how nonsensical that is? The Tea Party aren’t anarchists, they’re moms and dads and grandparents who know they can’t run their businesses like the government, spending money they don’t have, borrowing money they can’t afford to pay back, and sticking their children and grandchildren with the bill. They don’t hate government. What they do hate is a government that is ineffective and inefficient, and that keeps spending money and taking it out of the pockets of people who’ve worked their rear ends off for it, and have nothing to show because the government always wants a bigger piece. I would never call proponents of Obamacare anarchists. Anarchists want to replace time-tested systems with chaos. Well, okay. But still, I would never call them anarchists. ~Mike Huckabee
