    You want to know my answer to a false comparitive that you are trying to narrate. I'm not biting. Like I said, if they get involved, no biggie to me. If they get involved and deceive the movement by pretending to be independent while being nothing new but old hat money raising scheme for dems, I'll be pissed.

    Maybe not fair......Seems to me that others were complaining that groups outside of regular Joe were paying for things. Are you saying that you don't have a problem with that in general?

    When did any of the groups giving money to further the Tea Party message ever pretend to be independent?

    Some of the older GOPs know what will happen if this thing goes on and gets more members - how do you think the civil rights act of 1964 got passed? How do you think all that social legislation got passed in the 1960s? How do you think enough pressure was put on politicians to end the Vietnam War? All of that happened because the people took it to the streets, got the un-networks-sanitized facts to the citizens and made it OK to say you opposed segregation, supported services for seniors, opposed Vietnam and supported more funding to education.
    I am not sure that this new movement wants materially different things than the tea party wanted. End of cronie capitalism. The key difference seems to be the demographics and that the democratic party is taking over the movement through their union pals, not sure how that will play out.
