It's obvious because they have an entire portion of the Congress voting their way.
    Bible thumping, bigots, racist, that have called the President every name in the book other than an American! WE shall see how long those votes last! Because more than a few moderates are sick of them. Oh and Cruz isnt smart enoug to understand a childs book and he lies.

    the GOP is so powerful that they rule the entire government, the set every narrative, the set our national course .

    why are Dems even in office?

    oh that's right, they exist to keep informing us just how powerful the GOP is... day in, day out.

    "the GOP shutdown"...the latest lefty narrative... it amuses me.
    The democrats are not powerless in the house of congress. they have the ability to gather signatures for a discharge petition and force a vote on a clean continuing resolution bill.

What people don't want to realize is that the Tea Party isn't the GOP and it isn't the Democratic Party. It's based more upon ideology and values than politics. There is a segment of this country that will always believe in what the Tea Party stands for. I will agree that the Tea Party as it is today has strayed from it's original values. I can't deny that. However, the base of fiscal conservatism and small gov't is what made the Tea Party catch on. Seeing as how our gov't is not fiscally conservative nor is it small, they will continue to thrive.
    You're making yourself feel way too important by calling the Tea Party "alive" and "stronger than ever". That's simply not true. Where is Michelle Bachmann now? Not seeking re-election. Where is Sarah Palin? Getting shows cancelled on TLC. Where is Beck? Who knows - probably blaming Jews fo something. Where are John Boehner's approval ratings? So low underground most people in his state don't even like him. Where is Marco Rubio today? Same place as Milly Vanilly. Nobody knows.

    With that said:

    Where are the demonstrations with 50,000 people these days?
    Where are the Midwest seats in the Tea Party? Where are the Washington seats? Where are the North East seats?

    The Tea Party can basically be summarized as the "Texas Party". They've got 2-3 other states behind them but in reality, they haven't expanded. If anything, they've basically taken over Republican seats by using Republican money and Republican representatives. Your delusions of a growing movement are just that. Delusions. They're stagnant and dying for the most part.

    Because the goal of the teabaggers is not to honestly work towards making the ACA better. Their goal is to destroy it. It is never prudent to "negotiate" with extortionists.

    LOL. They took Obamas and the IRS's best illegal shot and they are still ticking like a windup clock.

    Where are all those Dem's that lost their seats in the House from 2010 because of the Tea Party? Bachman didn't lose hers. Palin and Beck never had one. But those Dem's still can't be found these days.

    Nobody has the goal of making Obamadon'tcare any better. Obama said so, as he says he won't negotiate it.

    Yes, all of us are bigots and racist. All of us called the POTUS every name in the book. You're right.

    there are plenty of democrats still in the house of representatives. and they have the ability to pass a clean continuing resolution to fund the government, end this shutdown, and without having to pass any poison pill amendments targeting the affordable care act, and Boehner or the republican house leadership would be unable to prevent it coming to a vote.

    the answer is a Discharge petition.

    They seem to be imposing their will as we speak. Would you disagree with that?
    In addition, it isn't just Texas and 2-3 other states. There are 36 states with an elected official who is a member or was supported by the Tea Party.
