who runs the Tea Party? - Page 2

post #16 of 135
That's what so many on the left don't get when they're developing their conspiracy theories. The Tea party isn't Republican, even though Repubicans are in it. The Tea Party is Conservatives who want to kick Republican, and government in general, asses into gear.

The Tea Party threatens spending, which means they threaten progressives, which means they threaten Democrats in particular, but the establishment in general. It's really that simple. Dems fear them and are desperate to stop them because the Tea Party would end the cash for votes scheme that this government has evolved into. Republicans are just trying not to get squashed too, because they know they deserve it.

I may not agree with your beliefs concerning spiritual matters but your political points of view are pretty much flawless.

and I would not want to be a party of any orgianization, if I didn't have a CLUE who was running it.


I'M running it, along with millions of others who are trying to avoid the same trainwreck.

I'll bet you'd like to think so.

From source watch-
"Reports indicate that the Tea Party Movement benefits from millions of dollars from conservative foundations that are derived from wealthy U.S. families and their business interests. Is appears that money to organize and implement the Movement is flowing primarily through two conservative groups: Americans for Prosperity and FreedomWorks.
In an April 9, 2009 article on ThinkProgress.org, Lee Fang reports that the principal organizers of the Tea Party movement are Americans for Prosperity and Freedom Works, two "lobbyist-run think tanks" that are "well funded" and that provide the logistics and organizing for the Tea Party movement from coast to coast. Media Matters reported that FreedomWorks receives substantial funding from David Koch of Koch Industries, the largest privately-held energy company in the country, and the conservative Koch Family Foundations, which make substantial annual donations to conservative organizations, including FreedomWorks (and its predecessor, Citizens for a Sound Economy) as well as other conservative think tanks advocacy groups, etc. Media Matters reports that the Koch family has given more than $12 million to CSE/FreedomWorks between 1985 and 2002.[1][2]
Media Matters also lists the Sarah Scaife Foundation as having given a total of $2.96 million in funding to FreedomWorks.[3] The Sarah Mellon Scaife Foundation is financed by the Mellon industrial, oil, and banking fortune. [4]
The Claude R. Lambe Foundation, also controlled by the Koch family, has donated more than $3 million to Americans for Prosperity."

Not sure if he's calling the shots but he seems to be the visible head via Freedom Works

It wasn't hard to uinderstand that with a Democratic super majoirty and President coming into power that Government spending and Taxation was going to increase exponentially. What better time to start the movement then at the start of that administration.

When winter comes you know you're going to need to deal with the snow that's going to come. When democrats own the house, senate and oval office, you know you're going to have to deal with the higher taxes and spending.

but SOMEONE is pulling the strings,
SOMEONE decides who GETS $100,000 to speak,
and who DOESN'T GET TO SPEAK AT ALL.

for someone to claim that THEY are running it along with a million others is pure nonsense,
and what is sad is that people are showing up,
and making noise, without knowing WHO is pulling their strings.
and seemingly, they don't care.

senseless is you FIRST claiming it was a REACTION to the Dems,
and then editing it to "Well we knew what the WERE GONNA do".

which just shows how dim the Dems are who support this group.

"I am upset because I am afraid the Dems are gonna do what I voted for them to do"

and for many Partisan Republicans, that's all they stand for.
If they do something that annoys the Dems, they will keep on doing it,
no matter how destructive it might be.

GO SARAH GO.

Just the way I'm stuck with the liberal organizations trying to smear and destroy us, I welcome the conservative groups trying to help us. Welcome to reality 101.

If you don't stand against the Demokrat Party and BHO, you stand FOR the systematic dismantling of our nation.

so ASKING who runs the tea party is smearing?
looking into who finances it is an attempt to destroy it?

how is that possible, unless the TRUTH is something that harms you?
