And then with the rest of your Constituents and by the millions...you elect your candidate.

    The Conservative movements will never win a majority back if they do not work together! and you cannot work together if you're working apart. you cannot win big games Gentlemen, if you've a fractured sideline!

    Now some of us are leaders, some shakers. Some block and tackle, some are on special teams. Some are responsible for staff, some for recruitment. Some for campaign excellence, some for charisma, some for spirit, some for strength. But we ALL have the same helmet on, Gentlemen. It's the same helmet. and without yer blockers, without support, yer play ain't going anywhere.

    So, with all due respect scorpion, snap that chinstrap tight and get back in the huddle. Want use a few of your plays, let's see the playbook. But quit slicing off pattern and acting like you want to throw another interception, remember the last was returned for a Barack Obama touchdown and a Joey Biden/Hillary Clinton two point conversion.

    Huddle up.

    Absolutely. I would be all for a Goldwater conservative party. Dump the social agenda and get back to what being a conservative REALLY is.

    If not that....I would love to see a teabag party. Splinter the GOP and ensure Democratic control for decades to come. Maybe we could actually move the Democratic party to the left if the GOP were split.

    Re: New Poll shows Tea party more popular than Republican Party

    I participated in the Tea Bag party on April 15 and July 4. Funny how the July 4 was even bigger than April 14. Also funny that in both of them a majority of members participating were Democrats and union members. Quite a few independents, only a few Republicans. In fact very few Republicans overall.

    But then I live in Michigan and we have been ignored and abused by both of the parties over the past 10 years of our depression. Yeah, the last time the economic indicators in Michigan were positive was 1997. And then with GM being forced into bankruptcy, all of the retirees lost their pensions and health care. And all of the folks who held GM stock were busted. So we tend to be pretty bitter about government in general around here.

    Although I still chuckle about the sign that stated "Keep the Government out of my Medicare!" Things that make you go 'huh?'

    "Okay, suppose the Tea Party Movement organized itself as a political party. When thinking about the next election for Congress, would you vote for the Republican candidate from your district, the Democratic candidate from your district, or the Tea Party candidate from your district?"

    The response of all those who were polled was Democratic 36%, Tea Party 23% and Republican 18%.


    Long live the tea party movement. We should all encourage their efforts.
    If the Republicans would redefine themselves as fiscal conservatives (classic liberalism) who support pragmatic 'safety net' social programs, then I'd listen to what they have to say -- however as long as they want to regulate social policy and cater to the religious right... I can't hear a damn word.

    I challenge everyone on here to go and register as an American and don't let the Election Folks tell you can't. My voter card say Party American.

    It's starts with an idea and goes forth after that
    When there is a candidate that better represents my views than the democratic candidate tends to, I will be interested. Telling me I should not be a democrat, when those are who actually have close to the same views as I is kinda silly.

    But keep avoiding the lead. How's your party doing? Can't accomplish a damn thing because the public hates everything the Dems are proposing.

    Buyers remorse among voters has set in worse than I've seen in my lifetime.
    Of course it has. Obama promised everything under the sun...for everyone. Anyone with a functioning brain knew that wasn't going to happen.
