Response to whatthehey (Reply #4)

14. Oh, forgot to mention THIS little problem.

Thanks, Whatthehey.

The KOCH BROTHERS and their friends and operatives came up with the idea for the Tea Party and organized, energized, funded, publicized, and directed it. It was never a true grassroots movement, the excited and committed people involved only thought they were part of one.

When we elected Obama, over 700 billionaires and megamillionaires joined the Kochs to make sure we didn't upset their plans. Plus there are other coalitions formed by people who don't care to join the Kochs. I think the leaders of your movement should expect that they will consider your plans for a new anti-establishment movement their new opportunity. Your leaders are going to have to figure out how to keep them from taking over, if only by supplying you and your red-state allies all the new congressmen you could want, already vetted, ALEC-trained in all the most useful catch phrases, and ready to slot in...
