LETTER TO THE EDITOR:The Enemy within
In last Sundays Letter to the Editor, a resident liberal walked us through the Tea Party connection to GOP contributors. What we need to do is take a closer look at is who supports the left wing of the Democratic Party. Allow me to introduce you to MoveOn.org.
MoveOn was launched on September 22, 1998 as a web-based, grassroots political network that organizes “electronic advocacy groups” of online activists around specific issues, generates political ads and works to win young recruits through its appeal to the Net-savvy, MTV subculture. Today, MoveOn boasts an email list of more than 3.2 million members. So where does the money come from to run an organization this size?
MoveOn has received financial support from numerous leftist organizations, including George Soros’s Open Society, the Tides Foundation and the Shefa Fund, to name just a few. Another supporter, Wesley Boyd and his wife Joan Blades, who had earned a fortune with their software company Berkeley Systems joined with George Soros after a meeting in September of 2003 and gave MoveOn 6.2 million over a six month period. The contributions included $2.5 million from George Soros personally; an avowed Socialist.
Shefa's areas of funding included social and economic justice; community and economic development; feminism and gender issues, which included Jewish feminist educational curricula; minority rights and entitlements; Middle East peace and economic development; the transformation of Jewish life, including youth funding and projects relating to gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender issues. Shefa also funded and promoted voting rights for all immigrants regardless of citizenship status.
"Social Justice" is a code phrase of the left, which believes that such justice can only be achieved by the recognition that capitalism and the economic inequality it produces must be replaced by a "classless" society wherein all differences in wealth and property have been eliminated.

For me the choice is simple; I am a Tea Party supporter as most of you have been all our lives. I say this because in your heart, like me, you carry a love for this great Country that has achieved great things through freedom. Like me, you believe in our Constitution and the protections it provides. But make no mistake; our Constitution is under attack, not by some foreign power but by the enemies within our own borders.
In order to insure a future for our children and grandchildren, in this freedom living Country we call home, we must stand for the hard right against the easy wrong. That stand starts in November, 2010.
