You're one of these folks who looks for a boogy man in everything out there. Grow up.

Sure there are folks in the tea party who are neocons. So what. There are neocons in every party and in all walks of political discourse, some are vocal in their articulation of necon views, like Bill Kristal and others tacitly support a neocon agenda, like Bill Clinton.

Sure there are folks of a specific political groups who are supporting the TPM, many with organizational support and cash. So what? See if for what it is - politicans jumping on a bandwagon.

The TPM at its core is simply folks who do not believe the government is acting in the best interests of the long term health of the country. They are sick of the corruption, the erosion of our freedoms and wild spending on items that make absolutely no sense or make sense and are run incompetently. They are angry. They are angry because we have a political class on both sides of the isle who pay skant stock in what the majority of the country desires in terms of public policy. The majority of the country is against the current health care legislation and made their feelings well know - it was jammed down our throats. The overwhelming majority want illegals out of the country and that major issue will be ignored for half measures, feel good attempts creating the illusion of progress, etc.

What folks in the political class and perhaps you fear is exactly the opposite of what you suggest that you fear and that is that this is the first movement that can not be tied to a specific group. Groups have at least defacto leaders and as a result are easy to hammer and discredit. The TPM is different because they are united by ideas, not a person.

And get off the "blame Bush" nonsense. That tired old bromide is getting boring.

now that was alot of contridictions and assumptions based on??

Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God

the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down.

The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing

Roots of Mao in the Dem Party.

Roots of Hitler in the Repub Party.


Makes about the same sense as this thesis.

Like I've said before. You can pour a billion into a group. It does not affect people joining or not.

Also.... Who cares? If I inherited money from Hitler, the Frack do I care what Hitler did? I have money.

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.

So much for the Tea Party being a completly grassroots campaign.

The homepage of Koch industries.

What do members of the Tea Party think of this?

No. Roots, stem, tree trunk, and full blooming shrub in the heart of the Democrat Party....
