In 2009, an unemployed mother of two and a politically inexperienced Northern California attorney met on a conference call that would end up starting one of the largest grassroots political organizations in American history, the Tea Party Patriots. Fueled by the fires of passion and patriotism, Mark Meckler and Jenny Beth Martin have become the faces of the most powerful political movement in the country, empowering their more than twenty million members by using both high-tech advances and the time-tested American tradition of rallying in public. With unparalleled access to the inner workings of the movement, Meckler and Martin explain how the Tea Party came to be, what it is and is not, and, perhaps most important, provide the first comprehensive, forward-looking document outlining a plan to restore America to its prior greatness. This is the definitive history of one of the most radical and revolutionary movements the country has ever seen, from those who started it all.

The Tea Party? How UN-original can they be anyway? And then calling themselves PATRIOTS? More like terrorists if you ask me! Obama 2012
