The 10A Movement and TEA Parties

Interesting insight here from Ilana Mercer.

These days neoconservatives are celebrating signs of local self-government, not for love of liberty and an appreciation of states’ right, but because they mistake the awakening for a mere revolt against the ruling rat pack (Democrats).

The TEA Parties were definitely NOT partisan Republican events.

Ms. Mercer quotes Ben Shapiro.

Now states are surprised to find that their ability to resist federal directives has been all but extinguished. They are surprised that they are no longer able to set their own standards regarding social, economic or criminal policy. They are surprised that through a combination of moral blindness and drooling greed, they surrendered their role in the constitutional system

The 10A Movement, still somewhat beneath the radar (and completely somnambulent in Wisconsin so far) may capitalize on the TEA Party movement.

They have a lot more in common than one might think at first glance.
