Key word is citizens. Both parties have been pandering to the illegals and one ethnic group of citizens. Citizens in the last eection were not given a choice as both candidates pandered to that ethnic group and illegals.
The Tea Parties started out as protest against out of control government spending. It has grown now to include all issues that they are against. I went to the first one on April 15th protesting the out of control spending. I haven't gone to any others because they have lost thier focus.
Best not give up on the Tea Parties now.
