Tea Party

without comments

Where are the moderate Muslims? Where are the leaders of this great religion who do not share nor theological corruption, nor the objectives nor, much less passion homicidal and suicidal for Al Qaeda? This is the question that began to be discussed intensely after the attacks of the 11-S. Today, ten years later, there is another equally valid question: where are the moderate leaders of the American Republican party? This party has also been captured by an extremist minority that, according to polls, does not represent the ideals, objectives and methods that have historically defined the Republican cause. It is obvious that the extremists in the Tea Party are not murderers and their influence is due to braces that have achieved within the American democratic system. But the reality is that this group of radicals with power – with very different methods and reasons to the of Al Qaeda – a source of international instability. Recently, the leaders of the Tea Party were about to produce a catastrophe in the world economy and able to do so, would end up with any initiative designed to mitigate global warming. And these are just two examples, but there are many more.
