    Tea partiers turn on GOP leadership

    Tea partiers turn on GOP leadership - Yahoo! News

    ...tea party forces are confronting the Republican establishment by backing insurgent conservatives and generating their own candidates even if it means taking on GOP incumbents.


    Yes......don't you get it GOP....you've got to become the teabag party.
    Shun the moderates....shun the independents......embrace the teabaggers and the right-wing base. This is the new GOP.

    Remember the part about "The revolution *won't* be televised?" -- they lied.
    If you analyse it, I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism. -Ronald Reagan

    You forget that the Tea Parties started with Ron Paul, most of whose supporters won't support any other politician currently elected. They were 100% libertarian in the beginning, and they were gradually watered down by mainstream republicans after Obama's election.

    I was under the impression that the tea party activist were a mixture of democrats, republicans and other people which basically means they are above the dumb ass mentality of "republicans good, democrats evil" or "democrats good, republicans evil", why would they support the GOP?
    "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
