The TEA party is not just people sick of taxes (Taxed Enough Already), they are also in defense of the United States Constitution, which they feel has been violated lately by certain government actions. While some of the government’s constitution violations have not gone through, others have.
They recently were denied in an attempt to ban guns for U.S. citizens, however the Supreme Court made one of it’s last moves of the recently ended session deciding that the second amendment still stands and Americans can still carry guns. Also, the feds are constantly trying to step on states rights.
Members of the Tea Party are right to defend the constitution. While there are times the old rules set in places hundreds of years ago may need to be changed or thrown out, the basics are things we need to hold onto. Such as the right to bear arms and individual states having control in their own states. If we lose these basics and let the government throw out the framework the country may truly fall.

It is said that 65.1% of citizens turned out to vote for its approval.
The interim head of government, Roza Otunbeava told reporters that the nation is heading toward a legitimate, democratic system, not an interim system.
The change is much needed after the brutal April outburst which led to the former president of Kyrgyzstan to be exiled. There will be an election next year to decide who will take office and replace the exiled leader in 2012.
As more develops an update can be expected.
For now though, are there any countries you feel could use a new constitution or change to the system. How about the age old American idea that we the people vote for presidential candidates but are votes only decide on the members of the Electoral College who really pick the president? Leave me a comment with your thoughts.
