 +=== Tea Party ===
 +
 +Imagine you have the choice between two preschools. Preschool 1 has a lot of teachers with really strict rules, and they force you to pay them part of your allowance to go there. Preschool 2 has only a couple teachers, no rules, and you can keep all of your allowance. Your playmate goes to preschool 1 and says its better because the teachers and rules protect all the kids from bullies and provide good tutoring to the kids who aren't doing well. 
 +
 +In preschool 2, you see that some of the kids there have taken the leadership roles that the teachers in preschool 1 had, and they organize fun games for the rest of the kids, all without rules or taking your allowance. Your friend in preschool 1 accuses these kids of being bullies and beating the other kids up after class. You've never seen this and think your friend is crazy. You look at preschool 1 and think the teachers waste too much time watching TV and spend too much time tutoring the kids that aren't doing well instead of rewarding the kids that do well. 
 +
 +You think that if they just rewarded the kids that did well, the good kids would help the bad kids better than the teachers do.
 +
 +The kids are business, the teachers government. Preschool 1 is our government in the eyes of the Tea Party. 
 +
 +Preschool 2 is the government they think would be best. You are the tea party person, your friend is the Democrat or Republican.
 +
 +I realize there might be some bias in this example given our general feelings towards teachers and classroom discipline, however, I couldn't think of a better example.
