    You're happy about THOUSANDS of Grassroots organizations opposing the Dem agenda?

    You must be a closet member of the GOP. Don't be ashamed - come out of the closet and celebrate your Inner Conservative.

    The best part will come only if this "federation" runs their own candidate in each and every midterm election. It will promise Democratic victories.

    Most local Tea Parties are citizens groups who advocate for issues or support major party candidates - from what I have seen to date, most of the effort is to hold government accountable, not to BE the government. That can change - and if it does, I don't see it helping the Dems. Only 20% of the country self-identifies as liberals. Many Dems will be happy to see a fiscally conservative alternative without all of the gay and abortion baggage.

    Simplistic (non-realistic) solutions to very complex problems.

    The cry is "do you want to pay less taxes and keep all the benefits you currently have living in America, come join the tea party".
    The same as "do you want a $30,000 car for $10,000, 0 down, no interest, come to our car lot". You get there and there is no $30,000 car for $10,000.

    The same is true of the tea party. They are luring people in with promises that cannot be fulfilled.

    Just like the wall street slime buckets that promised 20% returns forever. The people who sucked in are broke now.

    You need to live in the world the way it is not the way you wish it was.

    It's obvious you know nothing about the tea party movement.

    I know that they are VERY good at splitting the "conservative" vote wherever they make their presence felt. What more do I need to know?

    It's obvious the Tea party is now scaring the SHIT out of the Progressives, liberals and commies.

    That seems to be all they talk about today.

    Lets Roll Tea party. we've got them on the run.:clap2:
