    Only one data point? Find the amount they raise through the end of this month and then you will be able to better tell if they are waning or not.

    Generally speaking, this will be the overall picture I think. You guess which party the big dog represents. :wavey:

    We'll know the Tea Party is on the wane when the liberals here and everywhere else quit being afraid of it.

    Obviously, we are not there, yet.

    Yep, for being such a long-forgotten group of white racists, they sure are mentioned quite frequently by the haters.

    Such a driving force it has been this cycle, was Romney the tea party's chosen man?

    Or could it be that the tea party doesn't actually hold the power it believes itself to have?

    No, it doesn't have much sway with the RNC, that's for sure. Just look at Boehner and McConnel! We're busy winning smaller battles while looking forward to some big ones that will bring us closer to victory. There's more than one way to fight a war.

    Less taxes, smaller government. Anything more is not the TEA Party.

    Exactly. Bachmann and Palin do not stand for the above. Santorum and Perry were the opposite!
    Things that are not smaller government:

    • DOMA
    • The PATRIOT act
    • Forcing creationism into schools
    • The War on Drugs
    The list goes on and on...

    The Tea Party puts one old RINO out to pasture and suddenly we have DU liberals inside the wire.

    Ditto. So many have forgotten what the tea stands for.............

    Taxed Enough Already - T.E.A. Party

    Less taxes, smaller government.

    We are fighting a thousand small fights, where each victory is a small but vital step. We're not national - yet.

    PS - we are not Republicans.

    Damn right. :thumbsup:
