    I wonder if the tparty people should join as democrats because I'm afraid that the republican party will use us for their political gain. I know most democrats don't support tparty people but what if a signicant number moved into the democrat party. Would that change the democrat party into a conservative party?

    Actually,many Tea Partiers are Democrats. Quite a bit of Democrats voted for Scott Brown up in Massachusetts. The Tea Party message really does cross party-lines. There are more Conservatives in the Republican Party so their message may benefit the Republicans more in coming elections. There are Conservative Democrats believe it or not though. They are currently vastly outnumbered by the Socialists but there are some. I've run into quite a few Democrats who attend Tea Party rallies. Sometimes a good message really can cross party-lines. I think you're seeing that with the Tea Party movement.

    I'm from Massachussetts so maybe my tea party views are skewed but we have a lot of democrats in our movement here.

    The Tea Party people are sick of the progressives in both parties, although the progressives have more successfully infiltrated and exploited the dems they are in both parties.

    I find that to be true as well because everyone is liberal in this country and what I mean by that is that we are all classical liberals at our hearts. We are all libertarians to a certain degree.

    There is no such thing as the Democrat party and us members of the Democratic party do not want a bunch of right wing nuts joining up we have enough nuts from the far left, stay Republican.

    interesting point....how do you plan to get elected without the middle....tea partiers have been labeled right wing nuts by the democratic media but they are not.....ecah party has its base and they sway the middel in order to get elected....

    obama got the middle and got elected....overplay your hand and insult the middle and you get "scott brown"....

    did bill clinton teach all you all nothing....

    Give us the young college educated clean ones... you know the Ron Paul folks. The christian rightists with the anti-abortion signs can stay with the Republicans where they belong and PLEASE keep the birthers.

    Teabaggers are solidly right wing, what positions held by the Democratic party does the average teabagger support?
