you are confusing two different subjects...
1st, and again, the Tea Party, is not a party....
In that case kathyp, the Tea Party doesn't have a leg to stand or any beef with the IRS investigating a Party or organization that is non existent.
It's many groups MOST of them interested in constitutional issues and taxes.
Please make up your mind. Either the Tea Party isn't
a political party or organized political group of people like you said it is, or else the Tea Party is
a political party or organized group of people like you just said it isn't. You are posting contradictory information. Which is it?
Is the Tea Party a political party party? Or is the Tea Party a non political party party? You can't have it both ways. This is just a childish attempt by the Tea Party (likely out of embarrassment) to hide the identity of the people who are non member members of the very real non existent Tea Party party.
I don't blame them, after I spent two years of going to Tea Party meetings every month and calling myself a Tea Party Member anyone can see that they have the dreaded "Chicken with its head cut off" disease.
The Tea Party people in my previous post are members of a Republican Executive Committee to which I belong and they are also Tea Party Patriot members non members to a very real non existent Tea Party party all of them in good standing. After years and years of fighting the old Yellow Dog Democrat political machine these people are going to destroy Conservatism because the Conservative political party (The GOP) is being unfairly tarred and feathered with Tea Party hot tar dished out by the Democrat Party.
In the Gospel of Luke I think it was, there is a parable from the lips of Jesus about a duplicous business manger who cheated his employer. An employer I might add to which this manager pledged his fidelity. The moral of this story is that you can not serve two masters. You will either despise one master (the GOP in this case) and love the other (the Tea Party) or it must be visa verse. It is way past time for the Tea Party to either fish or cut political bait.
Everyone should remember that Obama is not the President who trampled the constitution the worst. That award goes to Thomas Woodrow Wilson who was first elected President in 1912 (almost 100 years ago) because of a third or non political party political party
, the Bull Moose Party which like the Tea Party non party today often refuses to support the GOP candidates and falls instead for a cult figure with the electability of Judas Iscariot. Todd Akin is one example of many. In politics there is no reward for being correct, the only reward is getting your candidates elected, period, end of discussion. If you don't like it get over it, it is still the truth, live with it!!!
There is no evidence from 1914 that President Taft was a Reactionary. There is however instance after instance where Taft continued or expanded TR's policies. To even think about saying otherwise is a left wing PC revision or even perversion of history and it is proof that you have had the liberal wool pulled over your eves by the PC establishment.
Here's an example of the political bundling that landed TWW in the White House and also resulted in the formation of the Obama piggy bank we know today as The FEDhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_M._Househttp://www.truthcontrol.com/edward-m-house"
Very soon, every American will be required to register their biological property [that's you and your children] in a national system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging. By such methodology, we can compel people to submit to our agenda, which will affect our security as a charge back for our fiat paper currency. Every American will be forced to register or suffer NOT being able to work and earn a living. They will be our chattels [property] and we will hold the security interest over them forever, by operation of the law-merchant under the scheme of secured transactions.
Americans, by unknowingly or unwittingly delivering the bills of lading [Birth Certificate] to us will be rendered bankrupt and insolvent, secured by their pledges. They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value designed to make us a profit and they will be none the wiser, for not one man in a million could ever figure our plans and, if by accident one or two should figure it out, we have in our arsenal plausible deniability. After all, this is the only logical way to fund government, by floating liens and debts to the registrants in the form of benefits and privileges. This will inevitably reap us huge profits beyond our wildest expectations and leave every American a contributor to this fraud, which we will call “Social Insurance.”[Social Security] Without realizing it, every American will unknowingly be our servant, however begrudgingly. The people will become helpless and without any hope for their redemption and we will employ the high office [presidency] of our dummy corporation [US] to foment this plot against America."
