There are an estimated 115 million TEA Party aligned citizens in the United States today.
Just by garnering 70% of that caucus would yield 80 million votes. That’s 11 million more than Obama received in 2008 and 21 million more than McCain received in 2008.
The TEA party network is already established and battle tested. We’re ready to roll.
To place a TEA Party Independent ticket of Sarah Palin for President and Rand Paul for Vice-President on the ballot in all 50 states in time for the November elections would require about 750,000 signatures from registered voters and about $8100 for ballot fees. Do you think the various TEA Party groups across America could execute on this action in time for the November general election?
In the meantime, the strategy for Conservatives, TEA Partiers, and Libertarians should be to vote for Ron Paul in the remaining primaries. If one is truly brave, they could even sign up with their local Campaign for Liberty group.
Americans Elect has already secured ballot access for the November election in 25 states. The TEA Party should have no problem doing likewise.
The TEA Party should retain Richard Winger of Ballot Access News as a consultant. He is this country’s foremost expert on ballot access questions and issues. His contact info:

Romney is very weak in the South and cannot beat Obama in the critical states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Wisconsin. Obama won all of those states in 2008 and if he wins those states again, he is re-elected.
Check out Karl Rove’s electoral map and Larry Sabato’s electoral map. Romney loses even if he wins all of the toss-up states.
A TEA Party Independent ticket could toss the entire election into the House of Representatives just by winning one of the rust belt states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, or Wisconsin. Of course, Romney would have to hold the South but if he were to fail in that task, a TEA Party Independent ticket could pick up the slack and keep those states out of Obama’s column.
Obama is the weakest President running for re-election since Jimmy Carter and, instead of running a Ronald Reagan [Sarah Palin] against him, who does the ‘Stupid Party’ choose?
Alf Landon [Mitt Romney].
This is your wake-up call TEA Party; NOW GET TO WORK!
Alf Landon is not a good model here, but Harold Stassen is.
