I agree,NO MORE MODERATE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES. How about a moderate party that believes in work hard, do your part to contribute to society and "live and let live" on social issues? There are too many people in this country who cannot accept the hard left or hard right platforms. We are the "independents' who swing elections. I voted on issues I felt were most important to me and this country. I felt the Romney/Ryan ticket was the best choice in this election. Thanks to the 3 million conservatives who "stayed home" we now have 4 more years of Obama. Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face. Give yourself a big pat on the back.

A new poll by Rasmussen Reports found that only 8% of Americans now identified themselves as members of the Tea Party.  While that still equals more then 25 million people, this is a startling drop from the 24% who answered same question just 4 years ago.  Of course, the liberal media in this country were first to publicize the poll results.  I could almost hear the chorus of left wing politicos singing, “Ding Dong the Tea Party is Dead,” while giving each other high fives.

Why would someone identify himself or herself as a Tea Party member these days with a label...
