Jim DeMint: The GOP had better behave … you betcha!

I could not agree more. Should the Tea Party, by whatever name, ever organize into a political party due to a lack of fortitude on the part of the GOP, I am pretty sure the Tea Party will become the major party.

Jim DeMint on Fox News yesterday has been one of the Tea Party’s movement biggest supporters. He, unlike Republicans, heard the cry of the citizens early on because they are most closely aligned with his political views. So he vows to fight the good fight against profligate spending, inordinate taxation and an overbearing government in the name of “can’t we all just get along.” Well the GOP has better get the message, or he is gone as well.

There are, in case you have not noticed, a number of prominent politicians who have been quietly assembling a political organization to match the conservatarian uprising among the citizenry. DeMint is not the only one watching the GOP as we pointed out yesterday.


I doubt that the Republicans will trip up so early on, but then you never know. On the other hand … is the groundwork for a new independent party already in the works?

    The Republican party itself was born when the Whigs failed to adapt to the desires and goals of their base.  It only took the new Republican party a few years to elect Lincoln and then proceed to dominate the political landscape for the next 50 years.  The pace of political development is much faster in the 21st century than it was in the 19th century.  2012 could be very interesting.

    The biggest challenge for the T.E.A. Party is to keep the Republicans from just taking it over and watering down the truth.  Keep the Dick Armey's at arms length while they develop fully T. E. A. Party candidates.  The upcoming election / opium of the masses / kool-aid quick fix is just the start.  Then, we must be diligent in keeping all elected officials honest – from town hall meetings, right up to the White House.
