Posted on 04/30/2013 8:05:31 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Can the Tea Party and establishment, moderate-minded conservatives ever reconcile? At The American Prospect, Abby Rapoport cites a new study as evidence it won't happen.
[T]he gap between the two groups is huge. In the YouGov survey the study uses, more than two-thirds of Tea Partiers put themselves in the two most conservative categories on economic policy, social policy, and overall policy. Only 23 percent of non-Tea Partiers place themselves in the most conservative categories on all three issues; nearly 40 percent dont locate themselves in the most conservative categories for any of the three policy areas.
Most jarring: On some issues, like abolishing the Department of Education and environmental regulation, the establishment Republicans are actually closer to Democrats than they are to the Tea Party respondents...

I’m more enthusiastic about the tea party today then ever.
Solve this issue and the Tea Party Rallies will resume.
Even though I am now an expat, I have identified with the Tea Party from day one.
The ONLY reason that I would have considered a trip back to the US would be to have been with them on the Washington Mall.
I wouldn’t mind being in Cebu myself. You made a great decision at the right time.
>> establishment, moderate-minded conservative
Say what? WTH is that? Makes about as much sense as “aquatic mountain-valley”.
NO. We have nothing in common with liberal/Socialism/Marxism/Statism in any fashion. Light has no part with darkness.
"Moderates" and GOP-e Party Hacks belong in the Democrat party where they have more in common and most often corroborate with anyway.
Moderates and GOP RINO party hacks attack Conservatives more viciously than even the radical Leftists do. 'Moderates" are the infiltration units the Left uses to tear Conservatism apart from the inside.
“I wouldnt mind being in Cebu myself. You made a great decision at the right time.”
Well, I would not want to be IN Cebu city, but I enjoy life ON Cebu in Dalaguete (www.dalaguete.gov.ph), the vegetable
capital of Cebu.
Cebu is also listed by Travel and Leisure magazine as the third best island in Asia.
Yes, I’ve seen positive articles often on
It’s sounds beautiful. Actually have friends there on Facebook.
Also, have you ever heard of the restaurant in Quezon province which is known as a restaurant in a waterfall?
I think it’s part of Villa Escudero resort.
What would David Frum know about the Tea Party movement or conservatives for that matter? Having said that he performs his real job as a divider quite well. Bronco Bama would be proud.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
“Also, have you ever heard of the restaurant in Quezon province which is known as a restaurant in a waterfall?”
I have never set foot on Luzon and do not know that restaurant in Quezon.
There are countless resorts and restaurants on most every inhabited island...By the way, the Philippines has 7,107 islands.
Last week, we were at Kawasan falls, just on the other side of Cebu...http://www.kawasanfalls.net/photos/
We had lunch right beside the falls. Some of my group took the raft that goes in behind the falls and then comes through them.
If you look on the Dalaguet web site, there is a Facebook
section that shows the Facebook links to many of the residents. The first and third links on the top line are my wife’s Facebook pages.
The first pic is my son. The links are Guia Entia Wilson and the third is Hearty Salvador.
But don’t you have to travel to Cebu City once a year to get your bicycle registration?
“But dont you have to travel to Cebu City once a year to get your bicycle registration?”
Bicycle registration? hahaha...There is no such thing.
Unfortunately, I have been going more then I like, in order to get my 13a (married) visa.
It has been a nightmare, as they added new rules on Jan. 1st and it required more documentation.
I will go tomorrow to pick it up and get the stamp in my passport.
Anyway, we still go for specialty shopping...maybe 4 times per year.
Not unless they become conservatives. I at least can thank them for showing the country why party affiliation does not work. I will support consevatives no matter what their party affiliation. This is why I no longer fund the GOP party establishment, instead I fund individual conservatives.
F-off Rove and your BS fundrasing fraud.
There is no such creature as a moderate-minded conservative. You are either a moderate squish or a conservative warrior.
The asshat Liberals know nothing other than the PC Liberal lies they have been filled with since age 5. Libs think they are brilliant trying to fix the world with Government...when it fails 100% of the time.
They just can't see us. We're behind every blade of grass. Every tree and every rock.
Then again, considering there's a leftist hiding under just about every rock, it's kind of a surprise they don't see us.
We’re the rifle behind every blade of grass that Yamamoto warned about.
He’s not the author (take a look) it’s just his blog at that site.
I saw that it’s his blog.
To anyone who is cowed by the lamestream media coverage, remember the admonition of WW2 bomber pilots, "if you're taking flak, you're over the target." Bombs away!! Get out there, get loud, wave your American flags, your Gadsden flags, and let's show the nation what patriots are made of.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
You're right, and that needs to end. The Tea Party became the powerful force it was because we weren't hiding behind blades of grass and rocks...we were out, marching in city streets, rallying on state capitol steps, in the public eye where no one could ignore us. That's what we need to return to.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
