A government and sociology professor at Harvard writes that the Tea Party is more likely than not to "win in the end" in an age when Americans are becoming more removed from Washington and distrusting the federal government and their elected officials. 

"Tea Party forces will still win in the end," Theda Skocpol writes, unless moderate Republicans can defeat them. Skocpol concedes that the Tea Party "will triumph just by hanging on long enough" as Americans are getting fed up by "our blatantly manipulated democracy and our permanently hobbled government."

The article, "Why The Tea Party Isn't Going Anywhere," was first published in the journalDemocracy, and later reprinted in The Atlantic

Despite the fact that Democrats, the mainstream media, and the Republican establishment again were predicting the "demise of the Tea Party" immediately after the government shutdown ended, Skocpol doesn't believe so.

As a wise man once said , the job is not going to get done by talking it to death . Just do it!

Contact list:

Please take time to email your elected officials! Do not assume that we have unlimited time to win this war or to make a positive change!
Oren , I advocate contacting your state legislators and governor for an article v convention of states too! I'm pursuing an all the above strategy which includes sending a copy of your letters to elected officials to every news media outlet you can get your hands on: local, state and national! It makes it much harder for elected officials to ignore what you had to say, instead your letter becomes a public record!

Same strategy here. Make a loud noise in Washington, then contact state reps.


God, Family and Country in that order

The Creator has a plan much grander than that of mans. The Creators plan is playing out according to His will.
This Nation ( as I see it ) for the most part has turned away from God!! We have allowed the Murder of the innocent through legislation making it "legal?" To kill 53 million of our citizens.....FREEDOM OF CHOICE!!! Legislation making ABOMANABLE acts to be openly practiced, allowing same sex marriage!!!

God places ALL governments in power....This nation appearantley wants to be Godless by it's legislative action coming from the representatives in the congress, we are all to blame, we have allowed this to happen!!

"I am praying for this nation. I stand on 2nd Chronicles 7:14. "If my people who are called by My Name will humble themselves and pray, seek My face, and turn from their wicked way, then will I hear from Heaven, forgive their sin and…" HEAL THEIR LAND

God will not be Mocked he is a sovereign God righteous in all his ways....this Nation will be Judged for its actions and inactions.

Could the placement of the usurper currently seated in the white house be the wrath of God and judgement coming upon this nation? We, as a nation have chosen to be lawless, so now we have a lawless government!! The righteous followers of God will be punished as well as the lawless, the righteous BELIEVERS will be saved to the new heavens and earth, the LAWLESS will parish forever in tormented.

This situation is going to get much worse, so bad it will astonish the worlds inhabitants with sorrows never witnessed before.

Sounds like you've thrown in the towel, Mitch.

I've been hearing that message from the Abandonment Clergy for years:

"Man the lifeboats!  Abandon ship!  Let her sink to Davey Jones's locker - after all, what do we care, we're saved, so to H E double hockey sticks with them all."

Perhaps that's some people's idea of being salt and light.  Not mine.  I wasn't issued a set of judges robes when the Lord saved me because judging others is not part of my job description.

Let's remember the 7,000 plus Marines who sacrificed their lives on Iwo Jima and another 12,000 plus (Marines and Army) who died taking Okinawa.  Two stepping stones on the path to the victory that paved the way for you and me to enjoy the liberty that we've enjoyed all of our lives.  Thank God for these men of valor.

" - And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our Sacred Honor."

That's The Spirit of '76 - no Abandonment Clergy anywhere near those 56 men.  And we have them to thank for everything that we true patriot Tea Partiers are proud to stand and fight for.

Not in the least Ludwig....

I will fight defending my faith, my family, my country and fellow countrymen. First with the letter of law and peaceful petition and if need be with gun powder propelled lead, and any other means nessacary. The American Patriot when deprived of Liberty being pushed will become the deadliest Gorilla fighter the government didn't expect.

MOLAN LABE......if you live to find me!!

Speak for yourself, dude.  I am sorry your head is full of such futile illusions, but there are millions of us out here who don't feel like you do.  I agree with others, however, we do need to unite.  But we need someone to stand as the point man/woman, so we have a focus and can start planning what to do.  If you want to stay with your "sorrows" well, its your decision.  Me?  I'm gonna fight.

This is such a sad state of affairs ! I think it is also hard to trust anyone nowadays to have your back when they say they will ! What if we get 2.5 mil people who say they will show up in DC and we get there and there are only 3000 that show up ....easy pickings and a way to put the rest in submission ! Me and the group I know here at home would go down guns blazing to protect those at home but if part of us leave and die elsewhere ...what about the ones we leave ! This is the conundrum we each face ! Maybe we can just crawl under the rug and this will all go away !

It was just a statement of the fear I think many of us have ....yes they want us to be afraid and I do think the longer we spend together the more that fear diminishes , our uniting is going to scare the hell out of "THEM" !

What about 1600 Penn Ave.??

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
