    When we started last april we were in the 8-10% range. Now a full 28% of the country identifies as tea party....same as identify as liberal/conservative. Not too shabby i guess.

    Next time I post a thread on it the nubmers will be over 30%.

    Funny part is our numbers only started to grow when hollywood, pelosi, and the MSM started to make fun of us.

    to read your posts, you'd think that the tea parties had more than 20-25% approval.

    kind of like the ron paul types who kept talking about how he was going to be president.

    Awesome! Freedom loving people of the world unite! Maybe we can start our own country. We'll call it Galt's Gulch.

    So eventually you'll replace the Republican party...and all your work will be for naught since you haven't distinguished yourself.

    Don't get me wrong...I'd love a new party that had some balls. Socially progressive, fiscally conservative. Gays = ok, Government waste = bad.

    But until your movement distinguishes yourself more than just "anti-gubbmint" you're only replacing the GOP.

    To some, 1/4 of the country supporting the Tea Party movement may not seem like much. But, look at the larger picture. The movement is only one year old. It is gaining momentum, while poll numbers for the Democratic Party, Republcan Party, and President Obama are falling. More Americans support the efforts of the Tea Party than the efforts of Congress. Tea Party members represent a silent majority of the people who are no longer willing to stand by while elected officials corrupt our government. They want to restore principles that have been forgotten. Who could disagree with this?

    With that said, if the Tea Party simply endorses the Republican party or becomes a third party then they lose credibility. The significance of the movement is to promote principles, not a party.

    28% also still loved them some Dubya at the end of his term. Coincidence? :eusa_eh:
