Frustration—the economy is a mess, and no one seems to be getting much help. Anger, too—this has been going on for years, and the government keeps getting worse. Anti-corporatism. Disgust with special-interest influence in the political process. The Democrats are in power at every level, especially in New York, and nothing is changing. And in this year’s elections, the Republicans and Democrats are all the same.
Close your eyes, change the accents, and you could be at just about any tea party rally.
