The Tea Party Express III: Just Vote Them Out! Tour
Join us for the biggest Tea Party Express national tour to date. Starting March 27, 2010 with a Mega Rally in Searchlight, NV (hometown to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid) we will take this message across the nation all the way to the White House in Washington, D.C. on April 15th:
“You, the politicians in Washington, have failed We The People with your bailouts, out-of-control deficit spending, government takeovers of sectors of the economy, Cap & Trade, government-run health care, and higher taxes! If you thought we were just going to quietly go away, or that this tea party movement would be just a passing fad, you were mistaken. We’re taking our country back!”
Join us from March 27th to April 15th, 2010
as we tell Congress and the White House: “Enough!”
Our Country Deserves Better PAC is leading the fight to champion the Reaganesque conservatism of lower taxes, smaller government, strong national defense, and respect for the strength of the family as the core of a strong America.
Wow, it sure looks like the GOP thinks the tea partiers are pretty much suckers. How insulting! This combined with the leaked fund-raising strategy documents that describe the tea-partiers as fear driven paranoid wing-nuts that are not motivated by rationality sure let us know what the republican party thinks of the true tea-party patriots.
Tea Party Officially INFILTRATED
Dan Quayle: Don't let the tea party go Perot
FreedomWorks staffers called local supporters across the country within hours of Rick Santelli's Feb. 19 rant on CNBC, asking if they were willing to organize a Tea Party. FreedomWorks hosted the first event with $20,000, four staff members and a volunteer intern.
FreedomWorks/Tea Party Leader Dick Armey Lobbied for Terrorist Group: In These Times, March 21, 2010 Dick ArmeyDick ArmeyThe magazine In These Times reports that in his previous position with the lobbying firm DLA Piper, Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey promoted the interests of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran, otherwise known as Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK), an organization that the State Department brands a terrorist group. According to the State Department, MEK blends Marxist and Islamic tenets, and was founded to overthrow the U.S.-backed Shah of Iran. In 1975 and 1976, MEK is alleged to have killed seven American defense advisers to the Shah. MEK achieved its original purpose when, working with followers of Ayatollah Khomeini, the group took part in the Islamic revolution, seized the American Embassy in Tehran and sent the Shah into exile. MEK later allied itself with Saddam Hussein to undermine the Islamic government of Iran. Armey also represented the Iranian-American businessman Saied Ghaemi, who from 2005-2008, paid DLA Piper $910,000 specifically for Armey's services bringing issues relating to Iran to the attention of Congress, the State Department, the Department of Defense, the White House, the National Security Council and the Department of Treasury.
In August 2009 Armey was asked to step down from his lobbying position at DLA Piper, which was doing lobbying work for the pharmaceutical industry to pass health care reform legislation. Armey was simultaneously chairing the conservative group FreedomWorks which was actively working to defeat health care reform by encouraging and organizing high conservative turnouts at congressional and senatorial town hall meetings.
DLA Piper was concerned about the conflict of interest particularly since their clients were spending millions in advertising and lobbying money to support the passage of health care reform and FreedomWorks was linked to demonstrations at town hall forums where health care reform was being discussed.

While you are reaching for some kind of dirt on the Tea Parties, maybe you can shed some light on the people SEIU pays to go oppose these Tea Party Rallies. These union people and the others they are in cohorts with get buses, paid by the mile for the distance they cover, housing, food, and even EGGS to throw at the Tea Party Express bus.
You want to do some homework, I have a assignment for you. Should be pretty simple. Find out how many people that oppose at these Tea Party Rallies and then out of those people how many belong to a UNION? Then if you can ask them where they came from and who paid for them to get here?
Tea Party Members don't get paid to be somewhere, they march to their destination because of the causes they hold true to their heart.
