More On the New U.S.Tea Party
The New Tea Party does not seem to know that Locke's contract theory has two parts, the Society and the Government. The Society was defined immediately (on July 4, 1776) by the first two paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence (DOI). And the Government was also defined immediately (on July 4, 1776) by the Second Continental Congress. But to strengthen the national government, the Government was redefined by the Constitution on 1788.
The new Tea Party does not talk about the foundations of Locke's Society in its public statements. Yet, the DOI defines Society's foundations such as God, God's laws, God's rights, God's equality of man, and God's security.
However, the new Tea Party speaks against Locke's Government saying that it must be limited. And it says that socialism must be rejected. These sayings are awful because Locke's Society and Government work together so that the Society becomes more perfect, as the Constitution requires. In my 9/22/11 blog, I show that capitalism and socialism do work together. Limiting government and rejecting socialism is a poor thought.
I continue to conclude that the new Tea Party was organized only to support the Republican party. The rejections of Locke's Society by the Republican party and the new Tea Party is really the rejection of the U.S. Declaration of Independence.
