Consider yourself lucky if you have a woman who fights for individual freedoms, smaller government, lower taxes and against our socialist president.
Those who say the tea party movement consists mostly of angry white men will have to recast their stereotyping in at least one regard — 55 percent of them are women, according to a recent Quinnipiac University poll.
The survey included nearly 2,000 registered voters nationwide. About 13 percent said they are members of the tea party movement that has pushed for more than a year for lower taxes, more liberty, and smaller government. Of those self-identified tea party activists, about 55 per cent are women.
The finding won't come as a huge surprise to those who have followed the tea party movement.
Dawald, national director of the ResistNet site, explained the activism of women conservatives to Politico.com: "You know the old saying that if mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy? Well, when legislation messes with mama’s kids and it affects her family, then mama comes out fighting."
