An example of the political sickness pervading our Country. A politician continues to attempt to co-opt the Tea Party Movement. Newt Gingrich is increasingly shameless. From the “partnering” we objected to previously he now just claims the movement for his American Solutions organization. The biggest irony and hypocrisy is his call to resist “cynical politicians”. He does claim to be “part of a coalition” of grassroots organizations. Many of those reject his assertion as is so eloquently done here. The Tea Party movement is a non-partisan, grassroots movement of concerned citizens. We aren’t interested in the failed politicrats of the past. We are interested in a return to Constitutional representative government, not padding someones money generating and power accumulating organization.
Here is the solicitation our Editor received and his response (response on top, solicitation on the bottom. Click read more to see it:
Thank you so much for inviting me to participate in a movement that I have been actively involved in since well before you expressed any interest in it. I will examine the “tool kit” you advertise from your organization. I also would like to thank you for warning me about cynical politicians Mr. Speaker.
Please rest assured that we, the grassroots activists involved in the Tea Party Movement will ABSOLUTELY resist the activities of cynical politicians. Particularly ones who attempt to co-opt the movement for their own personal or organizational gain.
As a final note, I’d like to note that youroffice Press Secretary never delivered to me a promised statement on concerns I have expressed to your organization.
For reference please visit: http://www.amfreenet.com A search on your first or last name or on American Solutions will produce the commentaries I am asking you to view. Please also see The Temple of Mut to appreciate the efforts of an excellent, non-politician organizer. http://templeofmut.wordpress.com/.
We eagerly await your personal reply.

Subject: Attend a Tea Party
, Tax Day, those of us who believe in free markets and limited government have an enormous opportunity.
This opportunity is the Nationwide Tax Day Tea Party.
American Solutions is proud to be a part of a coalition of grassroots groups that are helping to organize and promote Tea Parties all across the country. In fact, we’ve confirmed over 500 events in all 50 states and we’re still growing.
Hundreds of thousands of Americans of all political stripes will be hitting the streets to protest high taxes and fiscal irresponsibility.
To find a Tea Party in your area go to www.AmericanSolutions.com/TeaParty.
Our goal must be to put a stop to the excessive debt, spending, and centralization of power by cynical politicians, and to put forth a clear and decisive alternative.
We’ve put together a Toolkit for Tea Parties that you can print out and take with you.
You can download it right here: www.AmericanSolutions.com/TeaParty.
It includes, among other items, our 12 American Solutions for Jobs & , which is a clear and decisive alternative to the big government, big bureaucracy, big spending policies of President Obama.
Thank you, and we hope you will join us for a Tea Party.
