When the media dubbed former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin the den mother for the Tea Party movement, to many this signaled the end to the libertarian values that the Tea Party originally stood for; upholding the principles of individual liberty, free-agency and peace.
Few were more alarmed by this turn of events than Congressional candidate and libertarian author Jake Shannon. In TEA-O-CONNED, he shows how the original credos of the Tea Party movement have been co-opted by a neo-conservative group promoting war in Iran, criticizing immigrants and diversity, and persecuting those with different religious views.
Therein lies the danger, in Shannon's view. Thus, he is appalled that the Tea Party has been crashed by "Mad Hatters" such as Palin, Glenn Beck and media outlets like Fox News. TEA-O-CONNED is a modern day Paul Revere-style wake-up call, "The Neo-Cons are coming! The Neo-Cons are coming!"
TEA-O-CONNED explains why:
* ...the Tea Party movement has veered from the original principles of liberty espoused by former presidential candidate Ron Paul.
* ...the party has gone from a viable grassroots movement to "Astroturf."
* ...if we want stimulus, we need to abolish the IRS!
*...and much, much more!
