I blame a lot of this on the members screaming they want a leaderless movement. Without leadership, it is like a ship without a rudder, moving with whatever wind blows. Without centralized leadership, it allowed a lot of scammers and amateurs to pop up and take it all different directions.
Where (and who) is the real Tea Party? Does anyone know?
Not sure that’s what they mean when they say “leaderless”.
More than likely they want leaders who aren’t Washington insiders. Average Joe’s who step up - folks who haven’t been corrupted by Washington style politics.
Sadly, we’ve seen it doesn’t take long to get corrupt there...
