    I agree that is how the TP is most relevant.

    The left is puttering out. We'll see who rises in 2014.

    I think the Tea Party is a force today, but the elections of 2012 have weaken them some. I do not think they will ever be the force again that they were in 2010.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I disagree here, without the tea party the GOP would have never been able to take back the House in 2010. The tea party was very relevant to that election. But they have weaken somewhat, still a force to be reckoned with, but on a steady decline.

    The proper question might be: "is the TP too damn relevant!"
    And I bet all of them were started by people who don't like them.

    The Tea Party was a true force in the beginning, then it got hijacked by GOP celebrity and the mainstream media. I think the people who are true to its principles should keep engaging in activism, but they should dissociate from the Tea Party title.

    For the record though, I think Occupy Wallstreet had a much better impact because it showed people where the real power and corruption resides: in our financial system.

    If only the two movements could put aside their differences and get together. The one thing this government is afraid of the most is that people will stop their partisan bickering and unite against authority.

    The problem is I heard the exact same kind of rhetoric regarding 2012.

    Me too. That's what rhetoric will get ya. But the cracks in the left's hold have already begun to appear with the sequester and the gun initiative. Give it time. We'll see.

    I assure you, no one is spending a lot of time disparaging them these days. Or discussing them, really.
