Tim Scott on Principles & Values
Before the 2010 elections, the House Democrats had 42 black members. The Republicans had zero. Now there were two of the latter. The other African-American freshman, Tim Scott from the old slave market town of Charleston, SC, had made it clear during the 2010 campaign that he had no interest in joining the CBC with its liberal agenda. West hadn't discussed the subject with Scott.
Raised in Atlanta less than two miles from Ebenezer Baptist Church, West could still remember the primal wailings of his mother and aunts the night Martin Luther King was shot. To honor the perseverance of his forebears, West knew what he had to do.
The Tea Party movement is a populist conservative social movement in the United States that emerged in 2009 through a series of locally and nationally coordinated protests. The protests were partially in response to several Federal laws: the stimulus package; te healthcare bill; and the TARP bailouts. The name "Tea Party" refers to the Boston Tea Party of 1773, the source of the phrase, "No Taxation Without Representation."
