Hippies should be Tea Partiers

At least the earlier on hippies before the hippies began supporting the commie/ socialist movement during the Viet Nam war.

So says Zombie in yet another great piece where she shows how the first hippies should actually have more in common with Tea Partiers than one would expect. She even came up with yet another map of the political spectrum that shows hippies and Tea Party folks right next to each other.

That's true of the original Tea Party, but the various Tea Party factions have been consumed by the very corporate interests the original party despised.

I absolutely agree with zombie. Before the drug culture destroyed the hippie movement, there were high ideals, individual responsibility, back to the land, live lightly, less consumerism, but above all “I do my thing and you do yours” - quite the opposite of the big government nanny-state dictators and big spenders.

If tea partiers are anti-big spending and anti-big government, why are they members of a corporate-funded movement? You understand the connections, right? Meaning, who is funding the tea party factions and what they represent. Big government creates big spending -- corporate welfare and gratuitous government contracts to big corporations who didn't exactly earn the privilege by providing we the people with a superior product or service. Hypocrites is what they are, not really aware of what their platform actually is. Words are one thing. Actions are another.

Uh, this is such a pile of shit. Weird though that some of the conservatives now want the hippie label. But I suppose labeling is really important to you folk.

By that logic, Rose is now a Hippy

She's always smelled of rotten politics, so I guess it makes sense.

Rose, the Merry Pranksters turned people on to acid. The result was the hippie. Ain't no chicken and egg thing. Acid hatched the hippie. How do you think they got all those strong feelings about the Earth and equality and sex and all that, talking it over? Ain't no propaganda as strong as LSD.

Drop enough acid and folks quit eating buying Chinese crapboard, eating meat, wearing shoes and all that. People wonder why hippies like Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles... acid.

42 years fuss over that stuff and it still only costs $2 to change a person's perspective.

Tea Party starts doing that and it's all over for this two party system. Doubtful tho.
