In methodology if not in policy, Freedomworks looks like a Leninist "vanguard" organization, along the lines of the Bolsheviks. "Free the People" is the tipoff for me. I don't want them to free me. I am responsible for living my own freedom. If they came around telling me they want to "free me," I would know that they were coming at me like a cult or a splinter movement trying to take command of my government and my life. I am a free individual with my own liberty. I don't want or need some corporate-sponsored DC group to meddle with me.
