What The Media Has Missed

Today the talk is all about how the Tea Party was defeated in a number of big primaries. While it is true that the “Tea Party” candidate lost, the fact that is missing is where the Tea Party has taken politics.

Don’t get me wrong. Tea Party candidates losing elections is a a positive thing. But where these Tea Party nuts have taken politics is still very troubling. The party has moved way, way right of Ronald Reagan, George HW Bush, and Richard Nixon. And it has become synonymous with a very scary and troubling religious right. Barry Goldwater, once known as “Mr. Conservative,” was a vocal opponent of the religious right and their obsession with anti-choice, anti-gay, pro-public religion. But now the GOP is pretty much dedicated to an anti-choice, anti-gay, pro-Christian government agenda.

When you make Barry Goldwater look liberal on a bunch of issues, you gotta wonder what the heck is going on!
