I applaud you for getting involved but this isn't about you. There is no Tea Party. We do however have people who are riding the name like a Filipino prostitute for personal gain.

I understand your point.  Even while we were having Tea Party Rallies in 2009 and 2010, a few different organizations popped up with Tea Party names, such as the Tea Party Express.  They didn't represent anyone other than their own small subset of the movement.  Leading up to 2012, Obama had the IRS illegally target individual Americans who tried to organize Tea Party Groups.  This had a chilling effect and the "Tea Party" went under ground.  Whatever you call this populist movement, it exists and is growing stronger. (sending more "Tea Party" candidates to Congress)I still like to refer to it as the "Tea Party" for lack of a better name, but when I walk around the community and meet neighbors and carry petetions for myself and those candidates we endorse, I am talking about policies and positions; not political labels.  If someone discloses to me that they were (are) Tea Party people (since the positions/policies are the same, then I may chat with them about my activities in the early Tea Party, as well as my family members.  Otherwise, the Media and the Left, from Obama on down have Lied about the Tea Party so much that it's best to just talk about the same common sense, conservative positions we shared when someone dreamed up that name (Tea Party). The movement doesn't die...because it truly was a grassroots movement and still is...  Wink

I'm not sure you really are "tea party" though. It looks to me like a lot of people today calling themselves tea partiers are socially and fiscally conservative and that's not what the tea party originally was. It became that after the GOP meddled with it.

Where you there Fats?

Or did you take your rights and liberties for granted? Grin

I don't believe you were there. Originally the TP had no agenda, it was about breaking duopoly. It's you Johnny come latelys who feel the need to post your cred. The TP was made made up of disaffected people from all over the spectrum, it wasn't just conservative people.

But you go ahead and tell me some more about your days in the trenches.

And I'll keep laughing at you.

And I think I got under your skin. Because I'm right and you know it.

There's nothing wrong with wanting what you want Luther, just don't claim you're something else while you're trying to get it.

Deflection is common on this site I've noticed.

The original Tea Party brand didn't survive first contact with the MSM, didn't even last 6 months. Be whatever you want to be just be honest about what you really are.
