    I posted an item there a couple days ago and there has been NO ACTIVITY in any thread. Is this a technical issue or is it total disinterest? :eusa_eh:

    That was the intent. It to move us out of the mainstream of political discussion.

    That was deliberate. We belong in the politics forum.


    You will NOT question where a mod puts a thread. There is a Tea Party Forum for a reason. Maybe some of you should learn where to put your threads in the first place so a mod doesn't have to move them.

    Total disinterest.

    The really goofy T party folks lost, (Orly Taitz cratered) the more rational ones moved on.

    And the T party had more effect on the Democrats than the republicans. (I would argue the Stupak's victory was a T party victory over the Washington establishment)

    Also the T party is no longer outside anymore. Most T party republicans (except for the likes of Orly Taitz) won their primaries, so the establishment has to deal with the reality from now on.

    the T party has co opted the Republicans, and the T party democrats have chilled.

    Now it remains for the independents to jump. Are they going to decide that the T party folks are just normal republicans and not worthy of attention, or are they still mad at the indifference of the folks in DC to listening to the folks. From now on, it is business as usual

    Who?

    In Florida there are a bunch of Tea Party candidates, twenty I think, and the Republicans are insisting that they are all DNC plants.

    While things have been co opted... The problem is still there. US T party types still think the parties don't listen or care. We don't like that. We want to get their attention, but they still treat us like 2 year olds demanding cigars.

    It's OK...the Tea Baggers have done their damage to the GOP already. They will continue to split the GOP vote in every race as someone will be deemed not conservative "enough" and the Democrats have certainly found an ally in them.

    Ahhhh if no one posts in a thread that's IN that forum then the thread falls below the top 40 just like any other thread in any other forum.

    I haven't seen such animals, but I am willing to listen.

    The tea party dems are the same dems that voted for Bush twice.
