    Re: Should the Tea Party split from the Rebublican Party

    I think any actual Tea Party split that we eventually see will be a decisive split from the land of the Liberals. It is obvious at this point that no nation infested with American Liberalism can long survive.

    It should be said however, that certainly all Republicans and Conservatives truly appreciate the concern for their welfare and longevity that the Liberals demonstrate on a daily basis, well illustrated by the posts on even this thread.

    Yes, we know that the central question is Without adult Conservative institutions and economic support, how will Liberals ever survive, but most Conservatives are nearly willing to jettison any worries about that problem.

    There is no room in a two party system for a farther right or farther left party. Splitting would be suicide for the right.

    What would actually be more sensible would be for the Blue Dogs and more liberal Republicans to form a center party. There is actually a space for a centrist party made up of Olympia Snowe/Joe Manchin types. And it might also attract people like John McCain that Tea Partiers complain about so much.

    No. The Tea Partiers should purge the RINOs from the Party.

    I like the idea of a major political party with a concentrated membership that remembers that this country was founded in an insurrection, and that its founding document proclaims that it is the right of the People -- any people, to have another at any such time as shall seem good to them.

    Our leaders should have this fact constantly in mind.

    Re: Should the Tea Party split from the Rebublican Party

    The tea party does not have any of the skills, ability or intelligence to run an independent political party and function as one in competitive races around the nation. And then there is the uncomfortable lack of just plain guts given that they have absolutely no desire to do anything but exist as a parasite... lice ... on a larger host and feed off that while doing none of the work themselves.

    They would NOT be willing to accept the short term consequences of such a move - a significant decrease in the ability of the right to win elections resulting in more Democratic candidates being elected and the subsequent decrease in right wing power in state legislatures and in the Congress. Their abject hatred and loathing of government and progressive policies bind them in chains to the Republicans and they dare not break those shackles.

    If they want to split the conservative vote and make sure democrats win more of the closely contested congressional positions, that would be a great way to do it.

    The TEA Party folks need to get their messaging right.

    The popularity of the idea is Fiscal Restraint and they are growing away from that central theme to embrace the fringe whacko conservative loonies.

    As long as they are painted with the White, racist, religious zealot whacko template, they will avoid the main group that will support them.

    I am a fiscal conservative who is a social liberal. What this means to me is that if it costs tax money, it must be curtailed. The farther the expenditure occurs from the payer of the taxes, the greater that curtailment must be.

    I don't really care if anybody wants to do anything that does not harm others who choose to not be involved in the doing of the deeds in question.

    Social freedoms abridged by government or financed by government should be rare.

    Doing so would hurt their political standing, so they have no reason to leave.
