The Tea Party groups claim they are a grassroots organization made up of disenfranchised voters who want to stop the tyranny in Washington D.C. and take the country back to 1776. It sounds like a really noble cause until the realization sets in that the group is solely funded by the big, corporate oil Koch Brothers. The Kochs have denied any involvement with the Tea Party, but there is video proof to the contrary.
It is sad that bigots and selfish, ignorant citizens are manipulated by the Kochs who have no interest whatsoever in making America a better place to live. The Kochs are only concerned with promoting candidates who will do their bidding and cede control of the government over to the oil industry.
The ignorant teabaggers are manipulated by Dick Armey and Fox News into supporting policies that are against their own self-interest. Teabaggers claim they are taxed too much even though the Obama Administration cut taxes for 95% of Americans. The teabags support extending the Bush era tax cuts for the richest 2% of America’s wealthiest corporate leaders at the same time they complain that the budget deficit is too high. The Bush tax cuts have cost the country about $3.7 Trillion over the past ten years and still, the teabaggers support a permanent cut for the rich.
Teabaggers also fought against any energy policy that doesn’t favor coal and oil which is the goal of the Kochs and their cronies. If teabaggers opened their eyes, they would see that every single issue they espouse is against their interests and only help the oil industry and the richest Americans. Even in Modesto, teabags support policies that will hurt the region and their own interests.
When they finally realize they were sucking the money from the Kochs, they will claim they were misled but it will be too late. They are not being misled any longer because there is abundant data to show the Kochs control the conversation that teabaggers think is their own.
If the teabags would just stop and look at the candidates the Kochs and Fox News are promoting they may wise up and even feel embarrassment. Alas, when people are so stupid and naive to believe what is right in front of them, there is no hope. The Kochs want legislators they can control and the easiest way to control anyone is to keep them ignorant. With candidates like Sharron Angle, Joe Miller, and Christine O’Donnell, the Kochs have the most radical, ignorant people in America at their beck and call.
Hopefully, the teabaggers will stop sucking off the Kochs, and see the course of reason. Unfortunately, they will lose the monetary support of Fox News and the Kochs if they use their brains, and they want so much to be like the Kochs; why else would they be Koch-Suckers?
