poll conducted by Daily Kos found that 13 per cent of respondents who identified themselves as Tea Party supporters responded yes when asked whether they thought violence against the current American government was justified.
Last April, PBS reported that Tea Party supporters totaled 67,000. That would give the party some 8,700 members who consider violence against their government justified. I don't think the Taliban has 8,700 fighters inflicting violence against the Karzai government.
I don't know but it sure sounds to me like the Tea Party is a seditious, terrorist organization.
