Why would a political party avoid associating with an interest group that holds radical principles?
to prevent groups that have more popular views from running successful campaigns
to encourage various interest groups to create their own political parties and run campaigns
so they can hide purposes and ideologies from voters so they don't have to be enforced once in office
so they can
gain the support of as many voters as possible and get their members into office
The Tea Party movement is an American political movement that advocates reducing the U.S. national debt and federal budget deficit by reducing U.S. [ government spending and taxes. The movement has been called partly conservative, partly libertarian, and partly populist. It has sponsored protests and supported political candidates since 2009.
The name is derived from the
Boston Tea Party of 1773, an iconic event in American history. Anti-tax protesters in the United States have often referred to the original Boston Tea Party for inspiration. References to the Boston Tea Party were part of Tax Day protests held throughout the 1990s and earlier. By 2001, a custom had developed among some conservative activists of mailing tea bags to legislators and other officials as a symbolic act. ]
