What You're Missing If You're Not on the Tea Party Mailing List

More

In recognition of my long interest in politics and devotion to America, someone at TeaParty.org put me on its mailing list a while ago. It's not the mother ship of the Tea Party movement, but it keeps me in the know. More and more here is the sort of thing I get under its auspices:

Dear Tea Party Member,

Thank you for your continued support of the Tea Party. The Tea Party occasionally sends emails like this one to introduce new friends to our loyal donors and valued members. 

Please take a few moments to consider their message. 

Thank you again, from the Tea Party team - TeaParty.Org
Dear Reader,

For the next 24 hours, a shocking underground video is being made available to you.

(Although not offensive, it contains adult-oriented material and we suggest viewers be at least 21 years of age.)

For the first time, we're exposing the "forbidden" food that could be the biggest health breakthrough of our time.

Your whole life, you've been warned that this substance can wreak havoc on your health.

But the bad rap could be for nothing. Because research proves this shunned food:
  • "washes away" stubborn bladder infections (often in less than 48 hours)
  • decreases tooth decay by 80%--without having to drop any of your favorite foods
  • reduces blood clots without the dangerous side effects of aspirin
  • cuts sinus and ear infections by 93%--One pioneering Texas doctor reports these results are so dramatic his patients forget to keep using it!
And you should see how it helps you drop weight!

How can one food--especially one we're told to stay away from--do so much?

More importantly--what is it? And how can you get your hands on it?

You'll get all the answers here.
[JF note: I've removed the links. You can find the product yourself if you're interested.] And it's available to you for the next 24 hours. So, for your health, watch it here now.

--Matthew Simons
Publisher, Nutrition & Healing

P.S. While this substance is completely natural and safe, it threatens to wreak havoc on Big Pharma's fat coffers. So, while you still can, I encourage you to watch this explosive video.

Adding to the "Books someone should write" list: the life cycle of political movements, from emergence as sparkly-eyed policy endeavors, to senescence as mailing-list marketing vehicles for fringe products.

Update: Eric Hoffer already has, or at least has written a relevant sentence. Thanks to reader Ted DiSante in Arizona, for a pointer to Hoffer's The Temper of our Time, with this sentence: "What starts out here [America] as a mass movement ends up as a racket, a cult, or a corporation."
