The Tea-Kettle Movement

Thomas Friedman’s critique of the Tea Party Movement is quite valid. The Tea Party offers nothing but slogans. Crying “Capitalism”is not the same as offering a valid program for implementing capitalistic principles. According to Friedman:

The Tea Kettle movement can’t have a positive impact on the country because it has both misdiagnosed America’s main problem and hasn’t even offered a credible solution for the problem it has identified. How can you take a movement seriously that says it wants to cut government spending by billions of dollars but won’t identify the specific defense programs, Social Security, Medicare or other services it’s ready to cut — let alone explain how this will make us more competitive and grow the economy?

Obviously, he has not read the Austrian economists…and neither have the Tea Partiers.
