This morning, Tea Party Nation released a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and to Speaker to be John Boehner. Our letter was in response to a letter that originated from the group GOProud, where they tried to speak for this movement. GOProud is not a part of the Tea Party movement. It is not now, nor has it ever been.
The media reaction to this has been interesting. On CNN, Paul Steinhauser wrote about it. GOProud felt the need to respond immediately. Paul is a good writer, who has always treated us fairly. The story from CNN, is here.
GOProud whines that we had so many on there that we were just getting members on to make our numbers look good. They also claim they could have had five times the number we had.
I don't think so.
They could have had that many signators to the letter, but they would not have been Tea Party activists.
There is a battle going on now, for the heart and soul of this movement. We, who represent the mainstream of this movement must speak up and not let this movement be hijacked by those who want to use it for their own purposes and not the purpose of restoring freedom and liberty to this country!
