Another tea-bagger whines about paying taxes:
“It wasn’t until the last year that we made a decent amount of money for the first time,” he said. “Then I got nailed with taxes. And I think that is what has a lot of people frustrated with the current system: you’re being punished for thriving.”

I encourage all my fellow Tea Partiers to join Occupy Wall Street protesters in their non-violent, peaceful protests and together demand that the Government be returned to the people. After all, this is precisely what the Tea Party was intended to be before it was taken over and marginalized by the establishment politicians.
Fascinating. What will the 2012 elections look like if elements of the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street actually converge? The established political parties have had their chance at trying to define a new American consensus, and failed miserably, even with a grave crisis at their back to justify action and compromise. Could a confrontation between Tea Party and OWS factions succeed where the established parties have failed? Is this precisely the populist door many have been waiting years to open?
