Brother, the Tea Party is playing by the established rules and previously established precedence.
If the Tea Party doesn't get tax exempt status ... neither should the other political party contributors.
That's what the establishment FEARS. They are going to lose THEIR funding base (both old-guard parties). The last thing either the DEMS or REPUBS want is a level playing field.
If we ever expect to "take our government back," we're going to have to start by taking the money out of the picture and replacing it with the voice of the common voter, as it was intended to be.
Zero to Tea Party in 2012...just 1200 IRS audits!!!!!!!!

Flat, it started long before '59, the first gear of the anti freedom mega-machine started turning on the federal reserve enactment, and has not slowed one bit...

Does the federal reserve make donations to political campaigns?
I bet their stockholders do !!
And their "supporters".

Yeah, he and Gov.Cuomo seem to have the same views
Governor Cuomo: ‘Extreme Conservatives Have No Place In New York’
What great mentality for Men in power to have *shakes head*
'If you don't think like us, you are not one of us and therefore you are not welcome'
I think we as a society are digressing and now we are being subjected to a 5 year olds way of thinking:
'Ewe, you've got cooties, go away....we don't want to play with you'

Conservative activist James O'Keefe is accusing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's administration of targeting his group with document requests and a subpoena, claiming the Democratic governor's recent comments critical of conservatives "aren't simply words."
O'Keefe, whose Project Veritas is behind a series of hidden-camera investigations against left-leaning groups and causes, made the claims on the heels of the controversy over a recent Cuomo interview. In it, Cuomo blasted "extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay" and said they "have no place" in New York. He later walked back his remarks, and said they were being taken out of context in the media.
But O'Keefe claimed that Cuomo's government is acting on those words, revealing that the Department of Labor has hit his office in Westchester County, N.Y., with demands for financial documents for months. He compared it to IRS targeting of conservative groups nationwide.
"Governor Cuomo's shocking words this past week aren't simply words," O'Keefe said in a statement. "Governor Cuomo and the New York Department of Labor are on a witch hunt, demanding all documents and financials since our founding. ... His goal, of course, is to harass us and limit our effectiveness by tying us up in court. Just like President Obama used the IRS to target and suppress conservatives, Governor Cuomo is using his Department of Labor to do the same exact thing."
In light of this news,
I can't wait for O'Keefe's next video.
I wonder what the "question" will be?
Dinesh D'Souza is accused of giving too much money to a candidate who sought to replace former New York Sen. Hillary Clinton. Producer Gerald Molen tells The Hollywood Reporter the charges are politically motivated.
Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza, whose documentary 2016: Obama's America took a critical look at President Barack Obama and was a surprise hit in 2012, will be arrested in New York on Friday for allegedly violating campaign-finance laws, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
D'Souza first learned he was being investigated in the middle of 2013, several months after 2016 had earned $33 million at the box office and become the second-most-popular political documentary in U.S. history. The film included an interview with Obama's half-brother, George Obama, who was mildly critical of the president.
