Republicans are happy with the energy the "Tea Party Movement" has brought to their party. But it is a fatal cancer this movement brings to the Republican party. This movement is not in sync with mainstream America. It may not be evident in the first six to twelve months of the next Congress but soon thereafter it will ordinary Americans expect certain government performance in many areas which depends on Federal government spending which will require the federal government to raise revenue, for instance, Transportation spending, health care, etc.. Tea Party movement politicians don't support the necessary federal government revenue raising so there will be a big head to head conflict one day and Tea Party candidates and their host the Republican Party will lose big when this time comes. The best thing the Republican party can do from this moment forward into the indefinate future to counter the Tea Party movement threat is open up their primaries to independent voters, that is allow independent registered voters to vote in Republican primaries to counter the the extreme right wing Tea Pary voters registered as Republicans in the Republican party; of course, if in an individual state the Democrat party pursues mischief and registers its supporters as independents to sabotoge the Republican primary than the Republican party can refrain from pursuing this course. It is ashame about what the Tea Party movement has brought to America because a lot of the rank-in-file in this movement are good people and their low taxes, restrained government spending, small government principles are good principles but they have to be implemented in context and it is going to take a long-time to fix America and get these principles in the right balance with respect to the responsiblities the federal and local governments have with the American people!. The leadership of America has to do something about this Glenn Beck phenomenon! His involvement, the August 28 Washington D.C. rally (etc.), in the public spot light is bad for America. To begin with Mr. Beck should not even host a news show, it is abusrd and reprehensible that his show is on a news channel. If you listen to his show it is like a non-denominational ministry program, it is like watching a Dr. Wayne Dwyer motivational program to live a better life. Mr. Beck is a fine person but he crosses the line when he gets into politics. America has serious problems, America doesn't today offer the promise it can and should to many many Americans, America needs good wholesome (leaders that don't talk about God but serve him) leaders to lead America to the fully great country it should be!
