Tea Party Patriots National Coordinator Jenny Beth Martin wrote a piece that was published on Brietbart.com today that talks about the impact the Tea Party has had on the agenda in Washington and how the establishment continues to ‘blame’ the Tea Party.
It is election time again. Which means it is time again for the beltway establishment media, and politicians from both sides, to begin laying the groundwork to blame whatever happens on November 6th on the tea party.
The article also explains who the Tea Party movement really reaches:
In the massive 2010 Tea Party midterm “shellacking,” the Tea Party did not shift those on the right. Republicans voted 94% Republican, pretty much just like they always do. The Tea Party did not shift Democrats, either. They voted 92% Democrat: just like they have voted (give or take 1%) in each of the last 4 elections.
If the Tea Party did not shift those on the left, or those on the right, then who in America responded to the tea party message of fiscal responsibility, Constitutionally limited government, and free markets–in such huge numbers that they fundamentally shifted America’s political map more than any other shift in 62 years?
It was the independents. The “Tea Party independents.”
