Off you go to Afghanistan too. Patriot act isn't anything I ever supported.

Not sure how the misuse of our military might that has been going on practically unabated since the Spanish-American War can be seen as a partisan issue. There are Tea Partiers who vehemently oppose the misuse of our military force as much as any liberal. Two of the strongest voices against our foreign interventions are paleoconservative Pat Buchanan and Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul.

The term Tea Party means very little anymore. I do not see a political philosophy that can be used to define a Tea Party member. The original Tea Partiers tended to be libertarian leaning but they were soon bastardized by the social conservatives and mainstream Republicans who knew you could not run on GW's record.

Answering the question as it was written:

"Should Tea Party be conscripted and sent to Afghanistan?"

The answer is "No". Conscription is the compulsory enlistment of people, so sending people who are poorly motivated to an area of conflict (Afghanistan) would be detrimental to the combat effectiveness of the troops already there and increase risk.

I think we need to pay attention to messages from BOTH the Tea Party AND Occupy Wall Street. We've really let the media distort the messages of these movements.

I agree with cutting taxes AND reducing corporate corruption and control. Do most Americans not agree with this or is it just how the messages are characterized through the media? I mean, I have to be honest, the media made both groups look crazy just through a few camera shots of the extremes of both groups.

Conscription is a means for tyrants. Government does not own it's people in a free society.
