Snatching Defeat from the Jaws of Victory

I thought there was a possibility that the Tea Party would be different, but the same old BS seems to be rearing its ugly head. A small group that doesn't represent the whole movement is claiming victory in Delaware, which was a great Tea Party victory.  The issue is that instead of staying on message, they have lead the voters to believe that this was just a RINO hunt and they are out to get more.  This is not the message at all, but you would never know it from listening to all sides over the last week.  It was a victory for fiscal conservatives that want to put an end to wasteful government spending.  The majority of the Tea Party voters could careless if the opponent is Democrat or Republican because all are equally guilty of fraud, waste and abuse of our hard earned money.   We need to stick to a clear and concise message of fiscal conservatism, constitutional government, and reducing the national debt.  That is what is lighting the fire of true change across this country, not the RINO purge because there are a lot of independents that couldn't care less about Republican party politics.  BUT, they do care about fiscal restraint and have voted that way for years and they will look elsewhere if all this just becomes is a RINO hunt. 

The Tea Party off-shoot that is all about hunting down RINO's is going to turn off voters that only truly care about fixing the financial mess this country is in.  This is a conservative movement, but it is a fiscal conservative movement and they would do well to remember that.  I know that there are a lot of social conservatives in the mix and damn glad to have you, but don't think for one minute that the far right is what is carrying the day.  It is the fiscally conservative independents that will either make or break the November elections.  You RINO Hunters beware because you are doing your level best to turn those voters off and when you do you once again become irrelevant.  The Tea Party movement in this country is all about Americans tired of big government and big government waste and not only about purging the Republican party.  If you want to win in California, Washington, Nevada, or New York stick to the fiscal conservative message and yell it from the roof tops. Otherwise, you are handing this country back to Obama, Pelosi and yes Reid.

That is why from the very beginning that the Tea Party needed a clear set of ideas to rally around and to get other Americans to rally around and we were finally headed there until this week.  This week has pulled the Tea Party so far off message that it may just derail the whole train.  The libertarians and the independents need to reassert themselves and shout the true message of fiscally conservative non-interfering government  in every corner of this great land.  We can not let the Republicans or the social conservatives shoot us in the foot, when we are so close.  All we need is a handful of fiscally conservative Congress men and women to act a a filter on the crap coming out of Washington.  It was never about putting the old set of criminals back in charge of Congress.  The Republicans are all about regaining the power and the graft, but we can't take anymore of that regardless of who is in charge.  We need to send a clear and concise message that the corruption gravy train is over and the adults are in charge.  It isn't going to be pretty or easy to rid Washington of the dinosaurs of the corrupt past, but it must be done to restore this country for our children and grandchildren.
