Here's a good example of what the Tea Party philosophy creates in any country where the haves get to keep theirs and screw everyone else.

Welcome to the Banana Republic world which Rand Paul, Sarah Palin and their friends are creating because all taxes are evil and the rich should be able to do whatever they want because it's their money. And when we talk about taxes that are used for supporting the public welfare, we're stealing their (God-given) property 1 from them. It's the philosophy that believes they deserve all, and owe nothing. It's the philosophy that denies there is any space for the common good.

1 From the Tea Party Maine Platform:

k. Espouse and follow the principle: It is immoral to steal the property rightfully earned by one person, and give it to another who has no claim or right to its benefits.
