Oh yeah, I forgot.
The Tea Party is NOT REPUBLICAN!!!! The Tea Party is anti-establishment, not partisan. They are not Republicans and are not just looking to support
Republicans. They want Washington changed! They only support Ron Paul!!!!
But Ron Paul is not running for anything at the moment.
Then who is the Tea Party backing?
A bunch of Republicans.
What? No. They must be at least fresh faces, new blood, differeing kinds of Republicans not so entrenched in the current political cesspool, right?
Meet Christine O'Donnell. She has 20 years in politics and this will be her 6th run for office.
Oh, well that does not seem like a fresh new face. Surely she is a different kind of Republican though, right?
She is a far right Christian conservative that feels the bible should have more influence in our laws.
You mean like George Bush?
Oh no, he was a liberal!
But the Tea Party is not just against Liberals, they are against the status quo I thought?
Just call Bush a liberal, it works. Try it.
OK, well they at least must be more about freedom and liberty and democracy than the last set of Republicans we had in office, right?
Completely. Sharon Angel says the people should take up arms in a violent revolution if REPUBLICANS lose the FAIR DEMOCRATIC ELECTIONS in
That does not sound all that free. At least they are worried about the common man, the you and me, right?
Carl Palladino wants to give the common man a nice room in a prison camp. Guess who Carl expects to pay for that? Which common man are you? The one
in the prison camp or the New Yorker paying even more taxes in order to fund a prison camp?
But the point is, they are the party of Ron Paul, NOT REPUBLICANS!!!!
Of course. The fact that Ron Paul is not running and they are backing any Republican they never heard of before and not one Democrat should not get
in the way of the perception of reality.
Well, I am sure someone else in this thread will prove that the Tea Party is totally different from the establishment Republicans. I have faith.
Remember when your little brother wanted to go to the mall with you. He would beg and beg and beg to be invited and then whine about what you had
on the radio all the way there? Then remember how you would make him duck as you passed people you knew so no one would know you were driving him
around? Remember how you would be embarassed but take him anyway, then you would fight the whole way there. In the end, you both wanted to go to the
mall and both got there though, remember that? Yeah.
