I am a Tea Party member and we never got into social issuses it was always taxes and spending as well as the constitution. The repubs lost because they spent their capital trying to get rid of us. The members that went up to DC in 2010 were bambuzzled into sitting on their hands and wait for the elections. That is why the repubs lost and took down many Tea Partiers. Maybe some of us have learned their lessons, but the repubs would rather give the election away then allow us to gain. We will be better prepared in the future. It is my hope that a new party is formed as the rebups. now is a dirty word.

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...
