    LINK: A Message to the Revolution: The Easiest Way to Destroy a Movement is to Become It

    I guess you could say that the media’s new catch phrase these days is Tea Party. A couple of years ago, this tradition was reborn by a nationwide grassroots movement of non-partisan freedom lovers, who are seeking a return to the Constitutional roots of this nation.

    Arising first as the Ron Paul Revolution and now the Campaign For Liberty, this diverse and tech-savvy group of creative individuals reignited the idea of liberty in the political collective consciousness. Congressman Ron Paul has stated many times, "freedom is popular", so as our liberties continue to be curtailed, the resistance grows. Our instinctive reflex is to rebuke these incremental attacks on our un-a-lien-able rights. This human dynamic to rebel against tyranny is also well known by the elite controllers of the world today. The veritable peaceful, organic, spontaneous, synchronistic rebellion by the immensely informed sovereigns, united under one banner of freedom, has to be prevented at all costs by the establishment. A genuine social movement would enable a paradigm shift to occur, which would enhance the publics understanding of the true geopolitical construct that sustains the status quo. This will allow people to stop fixating on presidential appointments and start focusing on the control system itself, and the architects of the global agenda who manipulate both sides of the political spectrum.

    Yes, it definitely should be noted that the Ron Paul grassroots movement was the first to use the "Tea Party" name for a cause.

    Oh wake up. This is nothing more than the usual GOP hoodwinking of the anti-government people back into the party. The GOP promises to be a small government party, the stool eaters then believe them, and vote for them and disappointment soon follows. How much bigger is the government now than when the "Reagan Revolution" happened? Answer: much, much bigger.

    I doubt many Ron Paul supporters were "hoodwinked" by these tea parties. This thread is about giving credit where credit is due for the idea, and that is to the Ron Paul supporters.
