Allen West, Trey Gowdy, Louis Gohmert, Michele Bachmann, Jason Chaffetz and Tim Huelskamp would all be high on my list. But I'd take any member of the Tea Party Caucus.

This is a time to draw that line in the sand and stand up for America. If we don't we are no better than Boehner the deal maker, McCain the deal maker, Dole the deal maker, or any of the other beltway insiders who have forgotten about the citizens paying taxes for them to live like royalty.

I look at it this way. The election for speaker is an open race. Normally, the minority party doesn't bother putting up much of a contest because the majority leaders have been busy making their back room deals since election day. I'd like to see the Tea Party Caucus (TPC) bring this to a bare knuckle fight for power. I'd like them to caucus and agree on a candidate, then hold the insiders' and RINOs' feet to the fire.

I'd wholeheartedly support the idea of the TPC saying we vote for our choice, or we don't vote. That would open the door to the idea of democrats running one of their own for the position and the ball would be in the majority's court. Either they get together and elect a TPC candidate, or hand the speaker ship over to the minority party for the first time ever that I know of.

Showing America that there are members in congress with courage enough to stand up for our country, our constitution and our heritage is long over due. I think it would inspire a great following. It would also bring the debate over Tea Party values to the fore in the media and shed light on their lies about racism and all the other crap they spew about that people like Boehner, McCain, and even Romney would never dare to confront.
