The Intellectual Depth Of The Tea Party

The phenomenon in The United States of America known as The Tea Party is a disingenuous "grassroots" movement established by former Republican Congressman Ron Paul of Texas which gained traction nationally in the immediate aftermath of the election of Barack "Hussein" Obama. The "Tea Party" Headquarters is located in Houston, Texas, which happens to be the world's largest petrochemical complex. The city of Houston is the corporate headquarters of ConocoPhillips, Halliburton, and The Marathon Oil Corporation. The economy in Houston, Texas is based on Oil, for-profit Health Care facilities, and Wal-Mart.

Many prominent Republican politicians are associated with The Tea Party, including Allen West, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, Ted Yoho, Herman Cain, Rand Paul, Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, Gary Johnson, Pat Toomey, Jim DeMint, Ted Cruz, Louie Gohmert, Lamar Smith, Eric Cantor, Rick Perry, Nikki Haley, Rick Snyder, Paul LePage, Tom Corbett, and Rick Scott. While claiming to be "anti- Establishment", these Tea Party politicians work to protect the corporate interests of The Establishment. 

The "Tea Party" Intelligentsia is provided by the Washington D.C. lobbying group FreedomWorks which was established and is funded by David H. Koch. Americans For Prosperity is a subsidiary of FreedomWorks founded by David H. Koch and Charles Koch of Koch Industries to "educate" and "mobilize" American citizens into promoting the corporate agenda. Somehow Americans For Prosperity gets away with classifying itself as a "non-political" 501(c)(4) organization. 

The Tea Party "Patriots" are shock troops dispatched to public events to intimidate and threaten Americans opposed to The Corporate "Tea Party" Agenda by brandishing firearms. While the upper echelon of The Tea Party is fully aware of the true nature of the organization, sadly, many Americans, especially in rural areas and in The American South, have been duped by The Tea Party's "anti-establishment" masquerade. The unifying force behind The Tea Party is its advocacy of gun rights, opposition to The Democratic Party, hatred of President Obama, and opposition to taxation (mostly at The Federal level). It is ironic that Tea Party Minions support politicians who serve the interests of  financiers and the corporate elite they claim to despise.
