"Scorn directed at Tea Party groups for their interest in our Founders is out of step with respected philosophy and science. American grassroots organizations are headed in the right direction for the right reasons using the right methods. The Elites are out of step . . . The Tea Party Movement is driven by Americans' instinctive belief in the power of common sense, the power of civil dialogue, and the wisdom of our Founders. The Movement intends to move America back to the best it ever was and then make it better. It has the tools. None of it is untested theory. All of it is based on science, i.e., observations and careful reasoning."
