The tea party is the sole reason there is gridlock in Washington. They refuse to compromise at all. In Washington you must be willing to compromise. Maybe they will grow up one day.

The Tea Party has set an example of cleanliness that the OWS riff raff would be wise to follow. Despite liberal media and Democratic claims of racist comments by Tea Partiers, there was never any proof provided despite an offer of a sizable award by Andrew Breitbart.

There is a wisdom transcending all parties: If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 In this spirit one of our Congressional Candidates, Ron Bhalla, has said, "The people are sending me to Washington to honestly represent them.That is why I am alerting them that they must exercise power of control over their own lives. Washington politics does not currently operate for the benefit of the people. Each individual must press in to assure that their interests are being represented.They must exert pressure on their elected officials, and, maintain that pressure."

I would like to congratulate Mark West for his own 'Boldness'. Because of this, I am reminded of the fundamental/original reasons our great Republic was founded.

I'll just point out that the House passed 15 spending bills that were held up and not even allowed to come to a vote in the Senate. The Senate has not presented a legally mandated budget in the past two years. The House has done business in regular order; the Senate has forced these last-minute, take-it-to-the-brink temporary resolutions. So, how do you negotiate when one party isn't interested in real negotiation and is playing political games with our nation's future?

The tea party has done one great thing: fractured the GOP. Thanks, guys!

The Tea Party is one of the few real groups interested and effective in its efforts to preserve a free America. Most libertarians are "right fighters" in my experience/opinion and won't hear what anyone other than those who agree with them are touting. God Bless the USA!
