The Tea Party is dead, Long live the Tea Party!

Now that the phony and fake Tea Party has been declared dead by pundits in the mainstream media, it is time we own what we started.

Ron Paul refused to take credit for what we accomplished for him in 07. Because of his refusal, the GOP, Dick Armey and Fox News decided to co-opt our movement. They were able to gather a bunch of angry Republicans that had no philosophical base but called themselves 'Tea Party' activists.

On this 6th Birthday of DailyPaul, I would like to declare the Tea Party ours once again!

Im posting a few of the best videos from the 07/08 campaign. Let it be a reminder of who we are and where we came from. Without these videos I believe we wouldn't have formed into what we are today.

I agree,Michael time to set the record straight about what and who the "true" tea party is and who it is not: Santorum, Palin, Boehner etc.
