This is a draft of a speech I gave to a Mora, Minnesota tea party group before the election of 2010. This is the ‘famous’ speech where I told them they had to expect compromise from the politicians they elected. Didn’t go over too well. The thing that’s interesting is; with the tea party’s help republicans won in 2010 and this is exactly what happened in the Minnesota Legislature. They compromised on their principles, raised spending and avoided real reforms like Wisconsin pushed head on. In the MNGOP’s defense, they did not have a republican governor to sign the bills the majority might have passed. So, they had to compromise. I guess I’m not Huey Long, but I had a stump speech!
