Why call Tea Party members 'extreme?'

I take offense when liberal politicians call the Tea Party and other conservatives "extremists." The Tea Party and other conservatives believe in the principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility and free markets.

Those are the very principles that our Founding Fathers believed and advanced for our country.

Part of the problem is that many people are not as familiar with American history as they should be. Instead, many people believe what the liberal politicians and media tell them -- much of which is false.

On the other hand big government and distribution of wealth are the principles of socialism, which is not what our Founding Fathers envisioned for our country. The people who advocate those principles are the real extremists. Our country's government has grown much too big. Our Founding Fathers must be spinning in their graves.
