When pondering the question of who it is that the Tea Party wants to take the government back from, the active failure to prosecute for voter intimidation by the Obama Administration would seem to be the answer.
Or perhaps Congressmen who want to pass campaign finance laws to prevent GOP election victories.

Interestingly enough in the last several years there have been four big SCOTUS cases which IMHO, really define our freedoms and personal liberty Kelo property rights; Citizens United free speech; Heller 2nd amendment and now McDonald.
I hear a lot from liberals about how the right wants to curtail freedoms, we’re fascists yet when I look at where the liberal Justices ruled or dissented in those aforementioned cases I think it’s pretty clear who are the real curtailers of freedom and liberty.
After all when the State can take your property, restrict your political speech and disarm the populace, you really don’t have much left in the way of freedom.
Maybe those people too?
UPDATE: The more I think about it, the more I believe that the “taking back” is from the “government party” as exemplified by public service unions. Our political class is busy creating Two Americas, a privileged public sector and a serf like private sector, which the former can loot as needed or desired to support themselves. The Tea Party wants to take back the government from the government and reform it so it operates for the people and not just the public sector.
