2012 0-7734-3037-7
The book deals with the various facets of the Tea Party movement. The book shows the irony in the Tea Party claims that it is a nativist movement drawing on fundamental principles from the Constitution. In fact, most of the ideological base of the movement comes from the writings of Russian born Ayn Rand, Austrian economists Ludwig von Mises and Friedrich Hayek, and the French economic journalist Claude-Frederic Bastiat. None of these people had anything to do with the American Revolution.
