Politics as usual. Fat Cat rich politicians lie, manipulate, and wave the flag. That’s the Tea Party.
Tobacco lobby created the “Citizens for a Sound Economy”, CSE. Koch Brothers founded “Freedomworks”. The CSE founded the Tea Party, here is their first web site introduction.
Freedomworks joined in the propaganda-fest and now has bought a controlling interest. Their current web site does not disclose this connection. That is only one the truths they hide. What they claim to stand for is appealing to some. Those who believe the propaganda have been duped into supporting making tobacco and the Kochs richer.
The Tea Party is NOT grass roots politics. It is only a tool of the super rich to rape America, politics as usual.
