It's funny when people think the Tea Party organization is grass roots. A well sold lie. But I can say I don't mind them taking out Eric Cantor, that one was pretty grass roots.

^ Exactly. It's not a grass roots movement for the poor and average citizen. It's for the rich like the Koch Brothers that heavily fund the Tea Party and lead by other rich politicians like Sarah Palin. Kreakin, did you vote UKIP? :/

Discomfiting ... You need to look-up the definition of "grassroots" and think about it. The term refers to common, because the TP lacks elite politicians. It settles for candidates in the House (Congress' lower half), State & Local offices. That's ordinary, hon. Bottom-dwellers, in fishing terms. The Koch brothers can fund it, all day long. Still, their personal wealth doesn't change that grassroots status. The TP has no platform -- uses that of the elite GOP. The TP war-chest is also dependent on elite GOP funds. And every time a TP candidate gets tacked onto the national ticket, the GOP loses. The latter is a real b*tt-kicker; isn't it?

"A grassroots movement (often referenced in the context of a political movement) is driven by a community's politics." It's not really a community movement when the elitists are the herding the stupid and naive.

Sarah Palin, Ron Paul, Ted Cruz, Matt Kibbe, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn beck.... Those aren't considered elite politicians?

Rand paul too.
discomfiting says2014-06-15T16:48:29.4190565-05:00
Rand Paul... Ron Paul, who cares. They both suck.

Corrupt politicians make money off of your tax dollars. The Tea party is advocating for all around lower taxes... Am I missing something?
SweetTea says2014-06-16T06:23:58.7064429-05:00
Discomfiting ... Every "community" has its demographics. In the Tea Party, idiocy reigns. Cash is secondary.

The Tea Party isn't really any different than the republican party. The Tea Party claims that they will actually do the things the establishment republicans have been promising to do for years. Those things are insane, idiotic and destructive to begin with.

I am not seeing why you guys are angry with the tea party. All you have done so far is claim that they are just a bunch of corporate actors and taken your anger out on some politicians.
debate_power says2014-06-22T22:37:08.9589208-05:00
Right, but then the Tea Party should be used to all the warrant-less smearing by now.

@numberwang: What you said is funny and silly. The DNC and GOP are bought and paid for by the very corporations you speak of. The only well orchestrated lie being sold is the ones coming from the hacks that represent the mass media and both the democrats and republicans. If your so concerned about these practices, you should be supporting the tea party. They are trying to unscrew the mess this country is in. All you have done is drink the party line kool aid. Having said that, I don't believe the tea party will succeed because they don't have the money to go against corrupt Washington hacks and because people like you believe everything your party tells you to believe.
