    Low Registration Sinks Tea Party Convention

    Low Registration Sinks Tea Party Convention

    Organizers of the Freedom Jamboree announced Wednesday that they have canceled the tea party convention planned for this fall, citing low registration.

    They had hoped the event would serve as a stage for Republican presidential candidates to court the conservative movement, and two Rep. Michele Bachmann (Minn.) and former Sen. Rick Santorum (Pa.) had already confirmed they would attend

    Or this was a small group within the Tea Party trying to do something that others disagreed with:

    Twenty-one local tea party groups started it with the intent to reclaim the movement from national umbrella groups and offer an alternative to the annual fall tea party rally on the National Mall.
    “We were doing it because we were fed up with the infighting that these umbrella groups have done in 2010,” William Temple, a lead organizer who lives in Georgia, told Roll Call.

    Helps to read past the first paragraph.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Tea Party is dying off fast.

    You make me laugh sometime pal.
    If the Tea Party is doing so great right now why are they having such trouble to get a rally going on?

    Yes, it seems they've decided that being trillions of dollars in debt is really good for the economy.

    They've seen the light, that politicians can spend their money more wisely than they can, and have all joined the Democrats.

    Maybe people are realizing that the so-called Tea Party is really just scam to get people to continue to vote for republicans.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
