Who is running the show?

As I watch the daily news and read The Union, I am struck by one thing and it is Tea Party Movement. I can understand why people get mad about politics. The Tea Party people are working hard to get new people into public office.

That might be a good thing if it were not for one thing. All the “Tea Party candidates” seem to be Republicans. I thought this movement was a group from all the parties who were dissatisfied with government. Are the Democrats who joined the Tea Party group voting for the GOP candidates? It makes me wonder just who is running the show. Is this a grassroots movement or a carefully orchestrated plan of those who want the Republicans running all areas of government control?

We saw what happened to this country when Bush was in for eight years. The give away to the top one percent of the richest people. Less regulation on the environment, banking and big corporations. Why in the world would we want to go back to that? The GOP got us into the problems we are in right now.
