Tea Party Vs. Progressive Republicans — Battle For The Soul Of The GOP

Tea Party SC Tea Party Vs. Progressive Republicans — Battle For The Soul Of The GOP

Since Nov. 6, there has been no shortage of opinions as to why challenger Mitt Romney and the Republican Party failed to ouster President Barack Obama. Pre-election divisions in the Republican Party between moderates and conservatives have only widened since Romney’s defeat and the party’s strategy for the future remains unclear, a source of contention and heated internal & external debate.

Specifically, many now wonder what the sobering 2012 election results means for the right-leaning Tea Party, the champions of personal freedom and smaller government who exploded on the political scene in the 2010 midterm elections. The re-election of a progressive like Barack Obama would seem to signal the end of the conservative Tea Party, but the movement’s conservative leaders insist that last month’s election results only vindicate the group’s message.

“The Tea Party is not a political party; it’s an informal community of Americans who support a set of fiscally conservative issues,” says FreedomWorks’ Matt Kibbe. “And when you take a look at the roster of new fiscal conservatives being sent to Congress next year, it’s clear our issues are winning.”

Indeed, although the Tea Party may be focusing the vast majority of its ongoing efforts on local issues, the conservative movement has left an undeniable mark on the national GOP establishment. The group’s mantra of uncompromising fiscal conservatism and limited government has remained a driving force in shaping Republican platform.

    “the soul of the GOP”. They don’t have one(s) any longer. They sold theirs to the same Devil/Satan that demonrats sold theirs to. For money, power and control, and it is not easily regained, this soul, so easily sold into the SLAVERY OF EVIL! No. The GOP is gone, sold to the HIGHEST BIDDER, SATAN AND HIS SON WHO NOW SITS IN THE OFFICE OF “president” of our country! If the Tea Party wants to regain our nation and it’s former status, then the Tea Party is going to have to forget the GOP and start their own party of True Conservative, and go from there. The GOP is headed by the likes of Bonehead Boner, and his balless, spineless, moral free ass kissers, ass wipes. They bow to the devil and his minions only, and to no one else do they “pledge allegience” to. Certianly not to we, the people of the United States of America! We are ignored, just as surely as the sun rises in the east, and sets in the west, we are no longer even remotely important to them, because they serve one, and only ONE, SATAN! Talk about lost souls! Folks, Fellow Americans, WE ARE TRULY AND DEFINATELY ON OUR OWN NOW! It will now be up to us to dig ourselves out of the hole we have been shoved and pushed into. We can only count on God, Guns and our Guts to do what needs to be done!
