It's called HOPE. Pure and simple, people were hoping that the TP was a real movement. They were hoping that the Republican ideals wouldn't hold up under Tea Party rule. They were lied to and believed it. It's really kind of sad.

Democrats....Republicans...it doesn't matter.
They all have the same agenda, they just run under different ruses.
As soon as people recognize this and understand it, then a true third party representative will get elected. And only then, will a real change be plausible.
A friend of mine went off on me and said the Tea Party is a third party,...essentially.
I politely bought him drink and told him to read.
GO RON PAUL.....It seems you may be our only savior.

What you refer to as silence from the Tea Party is actually silence from the media on TP movement that is not interesting to the press.
The press will not bring a camera out even when the TP is 10,000 strong at a rally for the republic for instance and Ron Paul is speaking.
Let the Tea Party Express and Palin command a crowd and the press are all over it and thus no silence. It is all a lot of perception engineering by the MSM. The real grass roots is ignored and the fringe crazies or the neocons are the ones that have a camera in their face. It distorts the truth of the grass roots involvement.
I remember early on in the Tea Party there was a rally for the republic in DC and over 10,000 + people attended. It was peaceful and orderly if loud. There were dozens of videos on youtube covering it and RT, Press TV, and Al Jazeera were all there with cameras but not one American news outfit covered this very large event. Fox did not start covering the Tea Party events until it had been infiltrated and cooped by the neocons they serve. It is all just perceptual distortion and control you are reacting to.
