"The Million Taxpayer Grassroots March!"

According to the media and the left-wingers, the Tea Parties were either funded by the wealthy...people like George Soros, Steve Forbes and Dick Armey; orchestrated by G.O.P strategists (wow! we must have done a better job of organizing than we thought!); or if Homeland Security is correct, then a bunch of rightwing extremists were in charge. At any rate, the media estimated the attendance at a meager 250,000 (two-hundred-fifty-thousand) people, which would have been nothing to sneeze at, considering the fact that people had to take time off work to attend. But, leave it to the media to misinform the public, because the correct total was more than ONE MILLION!

Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), the current Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, stated "This initiative is funded by the high end. We call it "AstroTurf." It's not really a grassroots movement, it's astroturf by some of the wealthiest people of America to keep the focus on tax cuts for the rich, uh, instead of for the great middle class."

"AstroTurf" has been called "democracy for hire" by Political Journalist, William Greider, currently THE NATION's National affairs correspondent. Astroturfing has been further described as a "grassroots program that involves the instant manufacturing of public support for a point of view in which either uninformed activists are recruited or means of deception are used to recruit them."

It is further stated that "unlike genuine grassroots activism which tends to be money-poor but people-rich, astroturf campaigns are typically people-poor but cash-rich," but as you can see, our tea parties were definitely people-rich, thus proving our point that "astroturfing" was absolutely not involved!

One thing that all these tea parties were rich in was a love of the U. S. Constitution. Everyone that attended these tea parties held the same strong beliefs that the document our Founding Fathers had drawn up was a masterpiece and that it was worth defending and fighting for.

Clearly, many politicians and media representatives now in power feel threatened by the Tea Party Movement. They will try everything to discredit it, just like they have attempted to do with the Obama eligibilty issue. They attack it by giving it an appropriate name (it is the tea bagging and birthers, tin-foil hat movement). They attack it by misstating who motivated it and who is funding it (the rich invented and are funding it), who is behind it (sore-loser Republicans, racists, right-wing extremists, rednecks, white-power extremists), and whether it is really sincere (it is only Constitutional pseudo law). The picture that these individuals paint is that they and only they are the real representatives of the little, working-class guy and gal. How dare any other party or group attempt to try to take over their role as the protector of the underdog? Yes, indeed, those in power want the public to believe that they alone can and will help the majority of people better their lives. By making the public believe that, those in power only perpetuate their own power.
Those in power would rather stay in power and protect their own political and media jobs rather than do what is best for America today and in future years. As to the politicians, the American public should send all these opportunists, regardless of political party, packing back home to real jobs. As to the media, the public should relegate those media outlets that have either never learned or forgotten what correct media reporting is to the realm of irrelevancy.

Well said, Mario!
The shame of it is that the majority of American people are actually ignorant enough to fall for these ploys, even though they have noted a ring of truth to what we are doing. Rather than having to use their brains to research and find out the truth for themselves, they find it easier to remain "sheeple," following the rest of their herd blindly.
I hope you'll stop by again!
