    All political parties will experience flux in their infancy. But, however hard you try to suggest to the contrary, their ideals will still be attractive to many voters. The Tea Party is very similar to the UK's alternative political voice, UKIP (who I'm a card carrying member of and volunteer on behalf of). Even if the current Tea Party is forced to disolve out of either financial mismanagement or an idealogical split, their core ideals will resurface in the near future in some form or another.

    No, they are our only hope for our future. It is up to them to remake the Republican party. Get rid of the McCains.

    Only to the diseased mind of the typical modern American liberal drone would REACHING for the VERY THING they campaigned to achieve constitute "over-reaching."

    Although the weak-willed, tag-along beneficiaries of the Tea Party endorsed candidates (the old guard Republicans like Speaker Boehner) were able to play political games with the still formidable powers of the old guard liberals (i.e., the Democratics in Congress) to derail the Tea Party effort this time, there is GOOD NEWS:

    The fight is not yet over. It has just begun.

    Game over, owned, stop, give up....


    According to Paul, a Tea Party conservative, the proposal will bring spending to the “historic average since World War II” in just one year. He further claims the budget achieves a $19 billion surplus by FY2016 and will bring all non-military discretionary spending back to FY2008 levels.

    Good point! I am wordering if the Tea Party is not an idea of some Democratic strategist to eliminate the GOP. It seems to be working well.
