Doubtful. The tea party is gerrymandered into their districts. The more damage they do, the more they’ll be rewarded.

It’s the way revolutionaries think. All or nothing. Victory or death!

Neo-bolsheviks like the Tea Party always act this way.

Much of the Tea Party IS the working and middle classes. It absolutely amazes me sometimes how brainwashed they are into voting against their own best interests, how easily manipulated they are by pushing a few emotional buttons…gun control, abortion, God & country, “libtards,” “lazy druggie freeloaders and welfare queens,” “illegals” “tax & spend,” etc. Breaking through the defensive emotional bubble they’ve erected is impossible. You can try to ignore the social issues and just focus on the economics…the inexorable erosion of their economic and political power through the concentration of wealth…and it’s useless. Any talk about fair taxation, raising taxes on the wealthy and corporations and closing loopholes, is met with the accusation that you’re a communist.

re: #4 Tigger2005

You hit the nail on the head. Everybody else is the problem. I get that shit from people on disability and social security. You cannot get a straight answer from them, it’s always babble speak and “you know”. The truth is, everything is fucked up, has been fucked up and will continue to be fucked up and your slice of the pie is getting smaller. The politicians and wealthy with the rigging of the systems has squashed Joe Six Pack and all he knows is “somebody somewhere is getting something for nothing.” And it ain’t them.

Thirty years of Rush Limbaugh being the only game in town (or AM radio). Then more tighty righties came along. All day long in Real America.

People are brainwashed. You can tell then they throw out the Democrat party and all other Rushisms.
