Is this the real Tea Party?

Good morning, Netizens…

We have heard a lot about the Tea Party during the run-up to the November election, and still if you listen closely, you may end up not knowing just who they really are. You hear they are fighting for the disenfranchised, hard-working, economically-beleaguered Americans. However, if you turn to the conservative web sites, you quickly see that the comments are against those undergoing foreclosures. They call them all kinds of things, such as deadbeats and morons.

One has only to remember how these folks got into the funky mortgages to begin with. The bankers and mortgage lenders, good conservatives all, began the housing bubble. Thus, why are the Tea Partiers so quick to vilify the “little people” they claim to represent?

The market is always right, the government is always wrong, or so goes the Tea Party mantra, or am I missing something? There are a lot of “little people” who are being economically trampled by a herd of financial elephants and yet the Tea Party is being strangely silent about it.

There are lots of contributors to the Tea Party that have truly deep pockets, each of whom are eager and willing to put their conservative candidates into office and giving the Liberal Democrats the boot. Simply remember the adage about politics: follow the money. Don’t be surprised at who you find funding the upswell of conservatism.
