So, teapartiers dont want government to have power over them, apparently because they feel that it is corrupt and run by "special interests". So they propose to do away with as much of it as they can (except, apparently, the parts that enforce denial of civil rights to certain groups and the part that drops bombs). I'm curious who they DO want to have the power, because if they remove the government from various places of power, someone will fill that vacuum. Or do they imagine that the Individual will be able to stand up to a Collective such as a large and powerful corporation?
