Of course they shut the Federal government down. Tea Party Republicans long for the days when there were no government authorities to enforce laws and restrain the power of unchecked wealth, the days when there was no Justice Department, no SEC, no other agencies protecting Americans from the misdeeds of bankers and corporate titans.

But it already seems as if our entire country has secretly been transported back in time. We may think we’re living in the 21st century, but all the signs suggest we’re living in an earlier and harsher era. Here are seven signs the United States of America has returned to the 19th century.

I'd only argue that their target is more like the 12th Century and that MORE than the 'Tea Party Republicans' are behind this push....it is a bipartisan effort of the Elites - some openly pushing it; the others quietly allowing it.
