Michael Johns is a co-founder of the Tea Party movement, a former presidential speechwriter to George H.W. Bush, and former policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation. In this first part of our interview, he gives us the story behind the Tea Party movement.

However, it meant that leadership would often be blamed for events that were out of their hands. Be sure to tune in to an objective, in-depth analysis of the Tea Party's rise and culmination.  Thank you to Mike, Julie, and Tiana for becoming $15 per month Patrons! … More Ep. 31: A World-Wide Tea Party with Tea Party Co-Founder Michael Johns The post Ep. 31: A World-Wide Tea Party with Tea Party Co-Founder Michael Johns appeared first on The Edge of Ideas.
