    Re: tea party

    What context? The American political landscape, a ladies' party, or little girls with their dolls?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: tea party

    It's not just Republicans, but it is political conservatives.

    It harkens back to the original act of defiance against the British taxes when the American states were still colonies.

    it is people who are fed up with the Federal US government spending and indebting us while simultaneously regulating and controlling greater and greater portions of our lives and our economy.
