You mention that your a grassroots movement, but the only thing you seem to be really pushing for is not to offend anyone. This is being treated more like a party than an actual movement with meaning.
What's your stance on http://www.teapartyday.com/ listed right on the front of your site? The site in question is run by the AFA (American Family Association). If you go to their website http://www.afa.net/ which it is clearly not a grassroots movement. Do you actually want to be tied to a lobbying group thats protesting the "gay aganda" of pepsico ?
Whereas on another site you've commented on http://teapartypatriots.org clearly states that they are a grassroots movement, and have no issue whatsoever with gay rights.
The point is groups like yours are easily used by others, such as the AFA to construe whatever it is you might think you stand for into something more to their agenda.
The problem with your grassroots is you have no ground to stand on. If you want to prove anything actually cite real world tax policy that your specifically against. Just fighting a war on taxes isn't good enough. Are you against federal taxes, Obama's taxes, Bush's taxes , how about New York state taxes. None of these Tea party groups have any real goals beyond whining, and you don't even know what your whining about.
A good example of a real grassroots movement is the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) http://www.eff.org/ , right off of their front page you can see that they are against, warrentless wiretapping of american citizens, invasive border searches of us citizens laptops, warrentless gps tracking without a warrant from a judge. My point is, they have meaning and are a much better cause to fight for than "Taxed Enough Aleady"
