So just who is Grover Norquist? According to the internet he's the founder of Americans for Tax Reform and co-founder of the Islamic Free Market Institute. He is also a Board member of The National Rifle Association and American Conservative Union. But in reality he falls right in with demons like The Koch Brothers that use the immense wealth of Business Elite to fund elections and control the media messaging war. Like most others of his ilk, Ronald Reagan is the figurehead that these type of characters use as the model that they follow after (i.e using religion, superstition, fear-mongering, innuendo, doomsday scenarios, bullying and empty rhetoric that rally ignorant masses in favor of goals that only serve the Elite). According to Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Grover Norquist has been described as “the single most effective conservative activist in the country.” So as we enter into the 2016 Election Season, Norquist & his ATR will again join other groups (Americans For Prosperity, Koch Brothers, Citizens United, The Heritage Foundation, etc) who will dominate every word that comes out of the mouths of these presidential & congressional hopefuls. As for The "Taxpayer Protection Pledge," the aforementioned Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Rick Perry, Carly Fiorina, Rick Santorum, Ben Carson, Bobby Jindal, Scott Walker, Lindsey Graham, John Kasich, Jim Gilmore and Mike Huckabee have all signed their Blood Oaths. Only Jeb Bush, Donald Trump, and George Pataki remain unsigned. For now anyway.
"It’s because of soldiers like Grover that the conservative movement is so vibrant today.” — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
