Tyrannical governments create enforcers that desire to get ahead by doing its dirty business. As you see from this article, government is not only concerned about a political apparatus such as the amorphous Tea Party but also with religion. The government is concerned about who prays for whom and what they pray about? Whenever has this ever ever been any of their business? But they make it their business. Why?? Governments become hostile to religions since believers do not necessarily go along with the governments desires. Look at China and its hostility to the Falun Gong or other groups. The United States is lumbering towards a less free state where its citizens are property of the State and not free individuals.
