The Tea Party movement's dirty little secret is that its chief financial backers owe their family fortune to the granddaddy of all their hatred: Stalin's godless empire of the USSR.
The secretive oil billionaires of the Koch family, the main supporters of the right-wing groups that orchestrated the Tea Party movement, would not have the means to bankroll their favorite causes had it not been for the pile of money the family made working for the Bolsheviks in the late 1920s and early 1930s, building refineries, training Communist engineers and laying down the foundation of Soviet oil infrastructure.

The ROOTS of the Tea Party Movement that started in 2007 belong to Ron Paul's supporters and his bid at Presidency.
What started out small rapidly grew and grew to the point where the GOP saw an opportunity to exploit and co-opt the movement.

And the SOP comes out.
Where were you blah blah blah. See, the attempted takeover by the Repubs have ties to STALIN. See the Dems have this nice Coffee party now that wants higher taxes for everyone and more governmental control over everything, it is a much better movement.
Jeez, the Dems and the Repubs are the same party. The same party but so many keep falling for the same over and over and over again.
You guys may want to get a new spiel. It is not working.
Third party, anti incumbent, anti big government, anti war.
Sorry, this movement has it all, the truth. Sorry, the two party snake is going to die this year. If not, watch this country come apart.

Why were they were not tired of "out of control big government" from 2000-2008?
The Tea Party should be called the "Neocon Warmonger Tea Party"
because its a more accurate name.
They would rather go into debt by means of war than to spend the money at home.
The Tea Party would rather spend a million dollars on a cruise missile to blow up some civilians than to use those million dollars internally for the good of America.
I know who I am going to stand with, its not Sara Palin and the neocons.
Obama in 2012 all the way!

You're better known by your enemies than your friends. The TPM party is easy to figure out. What do they support? Limited government, fiscal restraint, scaling back of the federal role in the governing of states, low taxes. The railing against these folks is driven from fear of their agenda and thats because it makes sense to a lot of people. Who would be threatened by them and why?
