The difference between the Taliban and the TeaParty/Biblical Fundamentalist wing of the Republican Party is simply a matter of degree, rather than any fundamental disagreement over the principles that guide them.

IMHO the "matter of degree" is simply a reflection of relative prosperity and freedom. The Tea Party core is a lot better off than its Taliban equivalent, and they have more to lose by taking physical action. Despite their rants about government tyranny, teabaggers still live in one of the freest nations on earth. If their relative prosperity declines, or they actually gain power and start tyrannizing each other (and the rest of us), physical violence will increase.
