The non Tea Party are holding a rally in Tampa 8/26

with Bachmann and Cain as speakers lol


Tea Partiers say their involvement with the Republican convention will be largely outside the arena in Tampa.

Activists are staging a rally on August 26, before the convention begins officially the next day. Among the scheduled speakers are two Republicans who challenged Romney for the Republican nomination, pizza magnate Herman Cain and Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota

Tea Party leaders also plan to petition party leaders who are responsible for drafting the party's platform, its statement of positions for the fall elections.

FreedomWorks will present ideas such as auditing the Federal Reserve and eliminating the Department of Education.

"That's going to be a test. We will see how well we will be embraced or be told to pound salt," said Brandon, of FreedomWorks.

Members of the Republican platform committee say the panel will be receptive.

"Everybody is going to be welcomed," said Representative Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, who co-chairs the committee.

nice but...

It's great that they are going for this:

FreedomWorks will present ideas such as auditing the Federal Reserve and eliminating the Department of Education.

but they won't be taken seriously as long as they embrace the foreign policy of the neoconservatives and continue to call themselves Conservatives while begging for more government to enforce their idea of morals on others.

I call it the "instant" tea party

Created in a hurry, watered down, leaves a bad aftertaste in your mouth.


Should read the "corporate" Tea Party

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Oh, oh...

The vultures are circling again. Lord, how I hate seeing those vultures!

The eagles, however, will be soaring around the Ron Paul Rally. Now, that's a beautiful site to see!
