Questions for the Tea Party

Here are some Qs for your local Tea Party Patriot:
( The first two are from Michael Gerson's Why the Tea Party is toxic for the GOP )
  • Do you believe that Social Security and Medicare are unconstitutional?

  • Do you believe that American identity is undermined by immigration?

  • Do you believe that corporations should have the same rights as citizens?

  • (added Sept 2)
    With the kind of (smaller & less powerful) government that the Tea Party folks are trying to bring about, how would we effectively go about fighting a global economic externality like climate change?
    (...hypothetically, if human-caused climate change turned out to be real, & as (& as serious a problem as) the climate science community sees it)

Feel free to ask other questions - or, if you're a TPP, to answer some - in the comments.

Why do you call yourselves the "Tea Party" Patriots? How is our situation today like that of the aggrieved colonists in Boston in 1773?
