    The Tea Party is the core of the Trump base. As many of us always understood, they were (at their core) really just a rightwing culture warriors who used "the debt" as a tool to deflect from their real issue: Racial/Religous/Cultural resentment.

    And they went silent after Obama because they were never anything more than frauds/charlatans involved in a fake "grassroots" movement, from the very beginning.

    Conservatives have NEVER really cared about deficits and the debt. They only use those issues as political talking points when Democrats are in power. But the FACT is that deficits and the debt have ALWAYS grown faster under GOP presidents, than under Democratic presidents. Just in recent times, for example:

    • -Carter increased the debt by about $300 Billion, or about a 40% over that of his predecessor (which was about the average of all presidents dating back to Ike).
    • -Then Reagan came in and increased the Debt by about $1.9 TRILLION, or about 190% INCREASE over what he inherited from Carter.
    • -Bush, Sr. increased the Debt by $1.5 TRILLION in only 4 years, an increase of 54% over what he inherited from Reagan.
    • -Clinton increased the Debt by $1.4 TRILLION in his 8 years, or about 32% over what he inherited from Papa Bush.
    • -W. Bush increased the Debt by $5.9 TRILLION in 8 years, or about 101% over the debt he inherited from Clinton
    • -Obama increased the Debt by $8 TRILLION in 8 years, or about 70% over the debt left to him by W. Of course, Obama gets a pass because his economic stimulus plan literally saved the world's economy from a 2nd Depression.
    • -Trump in ONLY 3 years, in on pace to increase the Debt by about $6 TRILLION, i.e. about 75% as much as Obama's debt after 8 years!
    Accurate post.

    Thing is, the Tea Party could never endorse anyone. It didnt have leadership. People who tried to claim the mantel endorsed. Just because you organized a rally doesn't mean you speak for those who attended.

    The people left out there turned to Trump as their next hope in their desire to reign in the government...to reduce the government's power...to make it smaller.

    But those Elites...from both Parties are very powerful. Trump is having a rough time at it.

    We'll see those former TP's rally, once again, behind Trump this November.
    No

    They died the day they endorsed political candidates
