Constitutional libertarians (NOT AFFILIATED WITH ANY PARTICULAR PARTY) started the Tea Party, because of republican/democrat (same thing) attempted amnesty and Oct 08 TARP/Bailouts.
Currently, the Tea Party is almost entirely co-opted by the LEFTIST republican party. They DECEPTIVELY call themselves "Tea Party Republicans." The results are FAKE-TEA GOP groups Tea Party Express, Tea Party Nation, Tea Party Patriots, Freedomworks, FAKE-TEA GOPers Armey, Palin and Beck.
The "tsunami" of 2010 was championed as the "Tea Party Goes To Washington" and a "game-changer." What ACTUALLY HAPPENED was that NAIVE tea partiers... ELECTED MORE REPUBLICANS (like West, Rubio, Brown and Bachmann) and got extended Patriot Act, NDAA, CR, CR, CR, debt ceiling hikes, SOPA/PIPA/CISPA, amnesty schemes, MORE WAR, MORE GOVERNMENT, LESS FREEDOM.
Constitutional libertarians (NOT AFFILIATED WITH ANY PARTICULAR PARTY) evolved from the co-opted tea party and rallied around CONSTITUTIONAL LIBERTARIAN Ron Paul and the C4L. The Liberty Movement attracted folks from ALL PARTIES around CONSTITUTIONAL LIBERTARIAN Ron Paul (NOT THE GOP).
Currently, the SAME GOP CO-OPTERS who gobbled up the Tea Party (LISTEN PEOPLE) ARE NOW TARGETING THE LIBERTY MOVEMENT!!!!!!!! Same tactics, same propaganda, same technique of marginalizing people WHO WILL NOT BE CO-OPTED. They are in the language-poaching phase. You will see them by their DECEPTIVE TITLE "republiCANs" or "Ron Paul Republicans." They have PUSHED AWAY Alex Jones, Adam Kokesh, Tom Woods, the Ron Paul Ragamuffins, Danny Panzella, Luke Rudkowski and ANYONE ELSE WHO WILL NOT BE CORRALLED ONTO THE REPUBLICAN PLANTATION!
Benton, Hunter and Rand Paul (AN EMBARRASSING SELLOUT, REPUBLICAN TROPHY WIFE, Establishment-PROMOTER who rambles on and on and on about "damn democrats" LIKE RUSH LIMBAUGH DOES, and pushes Pathways to Amnesty.
Started as a young, STUPID angry (UNAFFILIATED WITH ANY PARTY) movement. Mostly university-educated kids who INSTINCTIVELY KNOW something's FUBAR... but HAS NOT the knowledge to understand WHY.
EXAMPLE (of a SMART one):
A little more complicated. The leftist democrat party tried and FAILED MISERABLY to co-opt OWS. The leftist republican party did the opposite... they FALSELY POSITIONED OWS as "democrat" or "democrat-friendly" AND claimed they were the OPPOSITE of the Tea Party (AN ABSOLUTE LIE).
See the pattern? GOOD GOD, TELL ME YOU SEE IT! The LEFTIST republican party and LEFTIST democrat party ARE PARTNERED!!!!! They survive by (A) KEEPING US DIVIDED AS "red" or "blue" - WHEN WE'RE NOT THAT DIFFERENT and (B) TRICKING US INTO THINKING THERE'S NO VIABLE ALTERNATIVE!
JOB ONE IN RESTORING CONSTITUTIONAL LIBERTY:
I know it hurts. I know it may mean loss for a few election cycles. BUT WE MUST ENCHAIN OURSELVES FROM THESE TWO LEFTIST, MANIPULATING PARTIES! NOW!!! NOT TOMORROW! NOT 2016! NOW!!!!!! TODAY!!!!!!!! Oh... and State nullification, too (which most co-opters ridicule)...
