Lol, no. Everything the Tea Party does seems to run into some sort of hilarious irony wall.
"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
The Teas were created and exist for one purpose, to keep the Bush tax cuts for the rich intact. Those cuts are going away in December along with the Teaparty. RIP
I do not believe they will succeed... in the long-term, though they will probably gain some short-term wins. Swing voters are gaining in influence, and they do not appeal to the swing voter enough to win them over.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
They are already succeeding in 2010 they elected a bunch of their candidates...........
"God Bless Our Troops in Harms Way."
They have already succeeded by becoming a voice in the Republican party. They achieved what they set out to do which is have a voice. Now establishment Republicans have to listen or they will be voted out.
Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.
Success in what?
Changing america to what they want or what they "seem" to want? of course that wont happen
influence america to share some of what they want? thats possible
it depends on what goal you are talking about, give me a goal and Ill give you my answer.
Currently they are to scattered and weak leadership wise and general direction wise to accomplish big things but that could change
Unfortunately, no. Too many alcoholics and drug addicts, that would not drink plain and simple tea.
