We are quoted in the story regarding the newly elected RNC Chairman Reince Preibus so I think it is appropriate to provide the link.
Many in the TEA Party / Patriot movement will continue to be skeptical of the Republican Party on a National Level. Our movement was instrumental in helping the Republicans retake control of the U.S. House of Representatives, yet no TEA Party / Patriot candidates that were elected, made it into a leadership position. They read the U.S. Constitution at the start of the new session and swore an oath to uphold it, yet most still support the Patriot Act, TARP, undeclared wars, and the Federal Reserve. We have been shouting to stop out of control government spending and make deep cuts, yet the best they can come up with is to “roll-back” spending to 2008 levels. They speak of Washington having a “spending problem”, yet the new Speaker of the House, John Boehner, could not come up with one area to cut spending when he was asked by NBC’s Brian Williams on the Nightly News.
It will be interesting to see if Reince Preibus does listen to our movement. The real proof will be in the upcoming presidential election cycle. If Preibus pushes the NeoCons like Newt Gingrich or Mitt Romney, over true constitutional conservatives like a “Ron Paul”, he will have shown us all his true colors.
