What exactly is the "Tea Party GOP"? That sounds like a lot of silly double speak to me. Either they are GOP or they are not.
From what I can see from the outside, it is a bunch of Americans who woke up. They finally figured out a third party is not going to work so they are staging a Palace coup and trying to gain actual control of one of the two parties and throw the Bankster out on their rears.
All The crap you see in the media is the attempt by the Elite to regain control and marginalize those who are staging the take-over attempt.
THAT is why they call themselves the "Tea Party"
I know what the Tea Party is... I know what the GOP is. I also completely disagree with your take on the subject.
The "Tea Party" at it's formation during the previous election cycle was actually made up of Individuals from both Parties, Republican and Democrat, and the tie that binded them together was Freedom. They wanted smaller less intrusive Government. The "Tea Party" was then literally hijacked by the Republican Party.
That is why I ask, what EXACTLY is the "Tea Party GOP"? The fact is, there is no such thing and what we are witnessing here with the use of such a term is an open admission that the Tea Party has in fact been coopted and is now under the full control of the Republican Party. It is my belief that you are not too far off the mark in your explanation, except that you got it backwards. There is no one attempting to take over one of the Parties, instead what we have seen is one of the Parties take over a legitimate political movement.
