AP: Is the Tea Party Brewing a Revolution?

WASHINGTON – They heeded a pamphleteer's call for "manly opposition to the machinations of tyranny" — the 60 American colonists who stormed Griffin's Wharf and emptied 342 chests of tea into Boston Harbor. And with that, a revolution brewed.

Now, more than two centuries later, come the angry throngs of the modern-day tea party. They've gotten the nation's attention. Can they foment their own revolution?

Not yet.

The Associated Press reviewed tea party operations in almost every state, interviewing dozens of local organizers as well as Democratic and Republican strategists to produce a portrait of the movement to date — and its prospects for tilting this November's elections.

GOOOH - Get Out Of Our House

GOOOH - Get Out Of Our House - is a non-party way to find and "vet" candidates who are ordinary citizens willing to serve their country for a short time. Those interested can volunteer to interview and "vet" the candidates who have no backing by special interests. Sounds very promising. Look into it. Google GOOOH


Love articles like this

Thanks for the exposition! There are equal parts disinformation and information but overall this is good stuff. Every now and then the MSM does us a favor and they actually talk about the plot. The PTB just cannot understand a movement without a leader. The PTB only understand hierarchy. That is their major weakness and obvious vulnerability. If we could somehow just sneak a tiny hobbit past their watchful eye and destroy them!

Interesting article

Some truth, some misinformation.

Pick and choose.
