I say don't throw out the baby with the bath water. Let it grow and see what is to become of it.
But we have already done so. They've been around now for half a decade. They've been shown in both in polling and by just general behavior that
they are anti government, anti choice, anti science, anti intellectual.
I'm sorry but the fringe movement of the tea party IS indeed the tea party. If it wasn't, than more moderate members would have been elected as Tea
Party candidates. Instead, the current "tea party" is attacking GOP incumbents who don't tow their new party line.
Getting 'Primaried' is what they call it I guess.
The Koch Brothers along with various other billion dollar neo conservatives have completely and utterly taken over the tea party message and it's
actions within the legislative groups they are a part of. They drive the campaign revenue and therefore decide the message.
Much the same way that George Soros and his cronies have taken OWS and perverted it into what it currently is, or should I say, currently is not.
I understand you wanting to have some hope, but forget about established groups that have already been infiltrated and corrupted. If you want a third
party, than actually have a third party, the Tea Party is not that group.
They are just a clone of extremist republicans who now, because of the extreme polarization between red and blue, have gained an iota of power that
can lead to very dangerous outcomes for America.
