    I wonder if these two "parties" will split during the 2012 Election or unite.

    If they each have a candidate to run, along with the democrats and the libertarians, what do you think will happen in the election?

    Or do you think the two (GOP and Tea Party) will come together and run one person?

    If they are divided, and each runs someone on their ticket, won't that divide the party base of the conservative movement?

    The TEA Party is not a political party - it is a political movement.

    So they don't have candidates they want to run in 2012? They will unite with the GOP during the election to endorse whomever they choose?

    This is confusing to me. I see a lot of 'attacking' already between the two 'movements' already (a lot of the threads here are based on that) so that's why I was wondering how it's going to work in 2012.

    The republican party will have to push the tp to the side if they want any main stream votes.

    They will lose this base if they please the middle.

    They will lose the middle if they please the TP.

    They can not win with them or without them.

    Unless of course they can cheat enough to win.

    They have done it before and the history is in the court documents.

    The tea party has never and does not support neo-con philosophy...

    The Tea Party faction would be a sort of analogue to the CBC in the Democrat Party...With the exception that there's almost no possibility that the CBC would spin off should the party not bow down and cater to them.

    I am hoping the Conservative movement which represents all of our voices as The Tea Party, will encourage people to run in every district, state, on the National level and that people are finally awakened to the truth that the power elite in our government no longer represent what is best for our nation despite what () Letter resides after their name. I will NOT vote for any establishment candidate who voted yes on the fiasco they call a budget deal.

    Doubtful, If anything they will gain in popularity as people realize government interference in the market place is what caused our down turn.

    The question is a serious one, which excludes any input from the likes of you.

    Now, STFU and go take your Paxil.

    Possibly like it worked in 1995, when the Bill Paxon & Dick Armey faction of the "Republican Revolutionaries" tried to overthrow Gingrich and the ruling class inside-the-beltway crowd.
