Tea Party activists are trying to take over the Republican Party from the ground up, according to the New York Times.

If they succeed the Republican Party may be saved. Otherwise they may as well join the Whigs.

If they succeed, the Nation may be saved. Leaving the nation to the Democrats will mean the end as well.

A win in Mass. will also be a wake up call for the GOP. Get on board or we will leave your a##es at the station. The Republican party is the peoples party, not yours!

"Darla says, “It’s a numbers game. The more Constitution-respecting conservatives join the precinct committeeman ranks, the more Constitution-respecting, and conservative, the leadership will be. And then, that conservative, Constitution-respecting leadership will endorse the candidate in the primary who is most faithful to the Constitution.”

That's what I want to see. Candidates who are faithful to the Constitution.


Here's my new tea party song....TEA PARTY

re: “There are many pieces to the Tea Party puzzle, described as a “diverse, rambunctious and Internet-connected network of groups”. This includes Tea Party Nation which describes itself as a “user-driven group of like-minded people who desire our God-given Individual Freedoms which were written out by the Founding Fathers, [who] believe in Limited Government, Free Speech, the 2nd Amendment, our Military, Secure Borders and our Country.”

Reminds me a bit of the Committees of Correspondence prior to and during the American Revolution. These committees provided a needed connection among all the patriot groups throughout the colonies. They passed on information throughout all 13 colonies, rallied opposition against the British, and promoted a much needed sense of a united and common purpose among the revolutionaries.

I agree that a 3rd party would not work. If any 3rd party would ever become a threat to the dims and rinos then there would be the largest conspiracy by those two parties to destroy the 3rd party.

All politicians are, after all, nothing but control freaks.

Let’s face it — no Tea Party on April 15, 2009, had the numbers that Obama had at many of his rallies. Not one of those Tea Parties would have even filled up half of a Major League ball park.

I think she's missed a point. True, no one Tea Party matched an Obama rally. But adding up all the April 15 Tea Parties, we know they came to over a million. We don't know for sure how many Tea Partiers came to Washington, but a million can't be far off.

Nevertheless, simply going to Tea Parties isn't enough. The Tea Partiers have to take over the Republican Party, starting at the precinct level.

I stood my watch. Over 10 years as a precinct committeeman, including four years as Central Committee chairman. I no longer have the energy to walk a precinct. Where are the reinforcements?

Obama’s friends in the mainstream media ridiculed the Tea Partiers. But, we need more than rallies and choir-preaching on internet blogs and web sites. Let’s face it — no Tea Party on April 15, 2009, had the numbers that Obama had at many of his rallies. Not one of those Tea Parties would have even filled up half of a Major League ball park. Those are the facts

Why is this person ignoring the Tea Party March on Washington on 9/12? There were upwards of a million people on the grounds of the Capitol that day.
