Way to change the premise I never said some Tea Party members are not social conservatives. I am sure many hold socially conservative positions. As an anecdote, I am a "practical" libertarian and share a lot of the sentiments with the local Tea Party. But I rarely support the legislation of social issues. I also receive e-mails from the Georgia Tea party. Other than immigration, I have rarely seen many calls for socially conservative legislation in their position papers. I am not even sure immigration policy is a pure social issue Again, please codify for us any incidents of elected Tea party candidates advocating socially conservative legislation. While doing your research, please try and understand the difference between holding socially conservative positions and attempting to legislate them.
