What is the short of the Tea Party movement? I am new to politics only becoming interested in about the past year. From what I hear is that they are considered "new age republicans" who want less taxes and a smaller government. I am sure there is more to it than that though. Do certain candidates represent them or what exactly is it? Is it the devil or do they actually have potential? Not looking for a book about them as I could go online for that, just looking for the short on them.
