The Tea Party 2.0

The Tea Party stand for ideals. Freedom, liberty, taking responsibility for your own actions. About America and how she is great, how her ideals are what the goal is, we have made mistakes, but we still hold to the ideals that others died for. We are the United States of America. We stand for the freedom of the individual over the control of government. This is why I consider myself a member of the Tea Party.

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...
