The Tea Party doesn't get what they want

The title of this post is a direct quote from this exchange Rush Limbaugh has with a caller. Later on in the same conversation Rush appears to be encouraging the overthrow of our government but that's a whole other blog post. I think that statement is an excellent example of the Tea Party mindset. They get upset when they don't get what they want. They have a very narrow world view. They want something really badly so they must be right therefore it has to happen and if it doesn't happen then the government is not listening to the people. The Tea Party people seem to be unable to grasp that those who don't view the world as they do have opinions just as valuable as theirs. They give the idea of working together a lot of lip service but, what I have seen from the far right, working together to them seems to mean working with them to help them accomplish their goals. That isn't how government works and I don't understand how they can not know that.
