Let me start with definition of a company in the context I mean;

As a very active person for the advancement and education of gun rights in the United States and more specifically in Pennsylvania, I’m usually up against the baseless facts that the anti-gun organizations such as: The Brady Campaign, CeaseFire, Mayors Against Illegal Guns & Moms Against Illegal Guns spew out. I say these facts are baseless because they’re usually facts for criminals, not law abiding citizens. In fact, there are more deaths as a result of car accidents and by medical mistakes than by firearms, but this is something they don’t want you to know about.
For those of us who new about the Tea Party before the term ‘tea-baggers’ became part of American pop culture, we are aware that it is an off-shoot of the Ron Paul 2008 Presidential campaign.
Unfortunately, Wikipedia defines the Tea Party as;
a populist political 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 Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and a series of health care reform bills.
At least they got the following right;
The stated purpose of the movement has been to stop what it views as wasteful government spending, excessive taxation, and overreliance on regulatory bureaucracies.
Have these goals been achieved though?
