Like the Japanese, many in America don't get it either.


I emailed a US Representative candidate to fill in some blanks spots in my research. One of the blank spots was "The Tea Party Movement". The
meat of his reply: "... I have been told by a Tea Party member that is
part of the R(epublican)E(executive)C(ommittee); the Tea Party is just the new
face of the Republican Party. Being an Independent, (NPA), I can not support
several of the local Tea Party groups, they do not reflect the people, they
reflect the Republican Party which is part of the problem we have within our
country right now."


I called him to get his approval on a correction to an obvious typo I found in one of his responses and briefly explained to him that many people don't yet understand the Tea Party movement. He can see that from
the way the state Republican Committees responded to MurKowski's and McCullom's
loss.


I followed it up with an email: "Thank you for talking with me this evening and answering the additional questions I had.
I re-read your statement on the Tea party and want to make one more point of
clarification: The Tea Party is not out to get Republicans elected; we are
interested in seeing the most conservative candidate get in office no matter
what their party affiliation, even if the candidate is a write in. We think the
Republican party has been taken off its platform by moderate and liberal
candidates. That is not good for this country. We would like to see the
Republican party returned to its constitutional roots." Ladies and
gentlemen, we have a lot of work to do.
