    Should the Conservatives and Tea Party join.

    Do you think the Conservatives and Tea party should split off from the main stream GOP and create their own political party.
    1) Yes
    2) No
    3) The GOP should push both of them out of the Republican party
    4) Other (explain)

    The Conservatives and the Tea Party certainly have their own ideas on how the Country should be governed.
    If they think they have the right ideas and wide support of the people, then why do they not create their own political party.

    They both think the speaker of the house should be fired, that taxes are too high, regulations should be relaxed, they both want to do away with food stamps or drastically reduce them. They want to change SS and eventually do away with it. And lots of other things.

    They don't like or agree with the main stream GOP and yet are happy to live under the umbrella of the GOP.

    If they created their own party they would be able to get their own message out without being held to the GOP standards.
    I'm sure they could find lots of business donors as well as private citizens to donate to them. They could possibly take several Republicans, Independents and who knows, maybe even some Democrats with them.

    I know it's hard, but lets try to have a civil discussion and not a pissing match.

    This is a private poll in an effort to keep it as civil as possible

    They shouldn't. Party division is the last thing either major party needs. Tea Partiers may not agree with the RINOs on everything, but being together in a party is what is currently keeping the Democrats' liberal policies from becoming federal legislation. Sure, I'd like that because I'm a liberal myself. But it's bad for the right-wing from an objective standpoint.

    Who exactly are these non-tea party conservatives that have the exact same ideals as the tea party? I think conservatives who have the same ideals as the tea party consider themselves tea party and those who don't do not.

    Agreed. It's impractical for both groups to split. It only helps Democrats.

    Only if they promise to STFU about homosexuality, the war on drugs or abortion. Else, its just another GOP on the "wrong side of history."

    That might be true, however if they really believe in themselves then it might be time. They may lose some elections at until they get it together. Then with the support they seem to have they would be a force to be delt with.

    Re: Should the Conservatives and Tea Party join.

    I think the GOP should kick the RINOs out.Let them form their own party.They could simply join the democrats or call themselves democrat lites(spelled sort of like miller lite).
    "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"

    I still don't see it unless the Republican Party or the Tea Party disappears and becomes as insignificant as the Socialist Party. You'll have two major splitting the conservative vote and the Democratic party getting all the liberal votes. Some of the Democratic policies would have to REALLY **** up for that to change.

    Re: Should the Conservatives and Tea Party join.

    There are virtually no actual conservatives left in the Republican Party as it is, there are just neo-cons and I wish all of the neo-cons would go leap off a cliff somewhere. We need actual conservatives back in control of the Republicans.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: Should the Conservatives and Tea Party join.

    Actually, if the tea party split off, some of us might be persuaded to come to the GOP again.

    When you remove the idiots in your party, you'll find the party becomes more attractive to independents.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
