O Tea Party e a batalha pelo futuro dos Estados Unidos

  • George Michael

Resumo

O Tea Party, que surgiu pouco depois de o presidente Barack Obama assumir o poder, é a mais recente encarnação do populismo norte-americano. Inúmeras questões – incluindo uma recessão econômica prolongada, os déficits orçamentários federais alarmantes, a preocupação com a imigração, os déficits fiscais, e uma resposta do governo aparentemente ineficaz para problemas – parecem ter alimentado o novo populismo de direita. Mas as mudanças demográficas nos Estados Unidos limitam o potencial do Tea Party e dos movimentos relacionados na medida em que quase exclusivamente ressoam junto aos americanos brancos. A menos que o Tea Party consiga apelar à população não branca dos EUA, a sua viabilidade, a longo prazo, é limitada.
