Perhaps the recent Republican stand-off is another sign the Tea Party movement is trying to keep their argument going, whether for the correct reasons or not. The longer they can keep the bipartisan shouting matches in play, the longer these people are going to make millions of dollars.
Sarah Palin is the face of the Tea Party movement, a woman that was struggling while in office in Alaska, only to quit early and is now a millionaire. How does she downplay her recent financial gain while complaining about today's government? She's made about $12 million dollars in the past year, compared to being in debt in previous years because of none other than political scandal.
Glenn Beck said it best and yet people still revere the blunt republican personality. "I could give a flying crap about the political process," he stated in Yahoo news. "We're an entertainment company." An entertainment company that made around $32 million last year.
The bipartisanism is plaguing our country that is in need of confident leaders that keep their minds open to political reform. Not to say Democrats are angels. Both sides have their scandals, but for a country like a America to constantly focus on the argument rather than the change, is sad.
