There are a few people/ parties interested in the Tea party to be their spokepeople...
They have already hi-jacked the movement

It bothers me a little bit, I'm not going to lie. Doesn't seem very grassroots.
It was at a point, but like most other things that get big....they get expolited.

quid pro quo
You don't think big oil is getting something out of the deal?
The Tea Party will be the new lobby for them
If it is truely to remain grass roots and not an arganized party....why accept money? shouldn't it be self funded?

Why can't a grassroots movement get funding from large groups sweet? Large groups are made up of individuals aren't they? As I said before, there is a fine line. In the political arena, the fine line is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo easily blurred. I said this long ago, the TPM was a initially a good idea, but the ideals would be tainted if big $$$$ got involved, grass roots would go out the window and the pandering would begin-
BIG $$$$$ backing= favors will come due=pandering to special interests-
Those who are not being rewarded by that special interest, are NOT impressed. Politics as usual-
