Do you think the Tea-Party will effect the out come of the 2012 elections?

Here in my state the recent elections the Tea-party had a big effect on the way a lot of people voted . I think people are waking up to the fact that the Good Old boys up here in DC are not doing "For The People" but for "Themselves"

  • Yes, I do. I think they will do nothing but continue to grow in strenght and influence. People do not like the path the progressives are taking us on and the more they do the more people will wake up. Well except for the blind and gullible and those who pay no attention. But people are paying attention in record numbers now as well.

  • Absolutely! Even if they cannot produce a viable national candidate, they will certainly make Democrats and Republicans, at minimum, fiscally responsible/accountable--which is what this country desperately needs!! IMO a TEA Party backed candidate has been "vetted" and given the "seal of approval!" I think they are successfully "branding" themselves--contrary to what the HANDFUL of very loud but unorganized liberals and progressives think!! LOL :o)

  • I think it will - they seem to be unafraid of talking about the elephant in the room. Even if they don't necessarily get elected, they ask good questions which get the public thinking out of the box. I hope (believe) that with this viable 3rd party we can get some elected officials in office that will do something for the people they represent.

    They aren't a viable third party. The only hope is for ones that run on the republican party label.
