    Being an actual political party, they do have a platform. It speaks of religion specifically:

    We oppose government actions which either aid or attack any religion

    Sounds like the tea party movement got infested and in turn infested the republican party?

    For sure I hope they do. Would be great for Democrats. If I was a conservative...no way.

    I guess from the perspective of a liberal trying to see across the fence, that's true.

    truse me though...

    The tea party attitude has little respect for RINO's, and vise-versa.

    I voted no. A split would only insure Democrats win more elections.

    If anyone should split - and I mean "split" in the sense of get the heck out of Dodge, it's the RINOs in the party.

    But define RINO. In name only meaning what? Abortion, for example, is a religiously driven issue in the GOP. In that Tea Partisans want very much to eliminate abortions, and birth control, that's big government. RINO? Religion in government. RINO? Opposition to gay marriage, a religious issue. RINO?

    Its true the Tea Party is mad at the Rinos in the party but by doing it ensures Hillary's election in 2016. I see when of the people who responded yes was Disney Dude. Of course he would want that.

    Why not? I think it would be a great idea! Of course I have no ulterior motives in saying that....
