Many people assume that the tea party is an offshoot of the Republican party but that is a mistake.
While tea-partiers love the republic, they have no great love for establishment Republicans who have supported the growth of big government. Likewise many tea-partiers are former members of the Democrat Party that have thrown off the bonds of rigid party affiliation in favor of remaining true to religious convictions.
In fact, the tea party includes disaffected and disenfranchised citizens from every social, economic, and political background.
Here Bishop E.W. Jackson challenges the black community to end their “slavish devotion” to the Democrat party.
