Tea Party Movement, What Next?

If you missed this past week's interview with Trevor Lyman, the organizer of the multi-million dollar single day fundraisers called "money bombs" for Ron Paul's presidential bid in 2007-08, you can listen to the full interview here.

He discusses his past successes in fighting for the liberty movement and his current project for moving the Tea Party protests forward into electoral action in 2010:


  1. So, what's the deal with the Tea Party National Convention inviting Sarah Palin to keynote? Doesn't this seem somewhat contradictory?

  2. Very contradictory. Most Tea Party leaders are neocons.

  3. There could definitely be a better speaker. I wish she wasn't getting all this buzz.

    rmcc4444, I think that the tea party formed around a nucleus of Ron Paul-style libertarians, that they and their agenda are most central to it, that conservatives who are moving in their direction are next most central, and that neo-cons trying to hijack this thing are peripheral to it.

  4. If people name some neo-cons as people to boot on the Tea Bomb site you are featuring as time goes on, they may lose some enthusiasm for hijacking the movement. I plan on helping you to spread the word on this on my blog tomorrow.
    Keep up the good work.

  5. Great idea! That's what I did! I also specifically targeted people in states and districts where they would be opposed by true liberty candidates.
