More often then not, Tea Partiers have no distinct desire...other than perhaps as an empty threat as a means of persuation...of legitimately starting a 3rd party. They seek to function like the Anti-War movement and other political movements, steering the national party that most closely aligns to them in the direction they like. If the movements membership is big enough to have an impact, then it will successfully cause that move or the party will actually suffer for it. If they don't have enough, then it will fail. Simple as that. You gleefully toss your insults about skill, talent, and ability because it reveals your true intent is to just be that...insulting. The reality is simple...they don't have the DESIRE to run or be a day-to-day political party.
    Agreed fully. They are an influencing movement not a party.

    Why do Libertarians like, for example, John Stossel, have TV documentaries on Fox News that only address the excess of gov't spending? Why do former dem administration aids and Libertarians like, for example, Dick Morris land on FOX News? Answer: so they can lambaste the excesses of gov't spending (in this case, ObamaCare). I wonder which Libertarian trait got Morris booted from Fox News?

    Libertarians/tea partiers are RINOs? Yes.
    I would agree.

    Dick Morris got booted because he predicted Romney would be a slam dunk to win the election. He was the only one saying besides Romney.

    Maybe the Right Wing Extremist Nut Jobs (RWENJ) could combine with the Extreme Leftist Loons (LL) and form the RWENJELL Party, otherwise know as the Stalematers.

    Then, we could give them their own capital, maybe on one of the Channel Islands or somewhere that they can't bother the rest of us.

    Re: Should the Tea Party split from the Rebublican Party

    In response to the poll question....other....

    Since as I understand it, the Tea Party is a coalition of more local "tea parties", each with similar but slightly differing goals.

    Further, that the "tea party" is already a separate entity, judging by the differences between some of the elected officials it supported and those it did not, even within the Republican Party.

    So the way I see it, either they never were part of the repubs (although they might have latched on or been convinced to latch on, temporarily), or they differ in goals enough that they might as well be a separate party...

    Seem the question is a bit more complex than "yes/No", since they might not be part of the repubs anyway..

    The idea is the moderate liberals would join up with the moderate conservatives in the Republican party, and the looney progressives would be left with what was left of the Democratic party. Then the "Democrats" and the "Tea Partiers" could be psychos off on their own with no one paying attention to them, with the new "Republicans", consisting of normal people instead of slightly retarded monkeys, actually doing...ya know...what a government should do.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.
