Power Can Make You Go "Bananas!"

Sociological Jurisprudence theorists may debate the role of law as a means of social ordering. Law and Society scholars may debate the nature of the symbiotic relationship between the two. Those discussion may be relevant to considering what happens when the formerly weak and powerless become the law makers.  History gives us too many examples of a new regime forgetting its humbler beginnings and losing its ideological moorings upon achieving power. If the American Tea Party rises to  power will it protest against itself?
