The Founding Fathers Were Anti-War, but Pro-ZOT!

The 2012 presidential election cycle is underway. With the Democratic candidate a foregone conclusion, there is not much uncertainty about where the Democratic Party is going. For better or worse, Democrats will likely continue to “dance with who brung them,” meaning Barack Obama and his brand of 21st century liberalism.

Not so on the Republican side. After historic defeats and victories in the past two elections, respectively, the Republican Party has yet to define itself for the future. It must come to grips with the fact that its miraculous comeback in 2010, after crushing defeats in the presidential and congressional elections of 2008, was due in large part to the Tea Party. However, with that victory came a large group of new Republican lawmakers, many of whom were not ready to fall in line with the Republican leadership. The most striking example, of course, is Rand Paul, who has constantly challenged mainstream Republican positions that do not jibe with his libertarian-leaning constitutional conservativsm.

Critics dismiss the Tea Party as simply a Republican Party publicity campaign rather than a grassroots movement that truly seeks change in Washington. However, it is impossible to ignore the fact that the Tea Party did indeed challenge the Republican establishment and defeated many establishment Republicans in primary elections – which means they obviously cared about far more than simply defeating Democrats. So, if not simply a front group for the Republican mainstream, what does the Tea Party stand for?

The quality of trolls has gone down too. They used to post non confrontational replies on obscure threads and then drop a turd. Not any more.

I think you had a decent thought and then your article took a hard turn toward travesty and idiocy on display.

Was this guy drinking when he wrote this and then posted before passing out?

Frickin unfortunate intellect and a crap analogy.

libertarian-leaning constitutional conservativsm.

What type of hybrid garbage is that? Ru Paul is a straight up Murry Rothbard style Libertarian. He is not a Conservative. You are a blog pimping dunce with a limited sense of history.

Well, I’ve seen a few of them, but of course I haven’t followed them as closely as you guys have. Lots of laughs at their expense! :)
