Do YOU believe that since the Democrat and the Republican parties practice politics as usual, that
there were be a more of an attraction to the Tea Party as a grassroots political movement?
Maybe in some regional elections and state elections. However no one is likely to win the presidency, U.S. Senate, or most congressional seats who is a member of a third party.
The Democrats and Republicans both have big money behind them. They can afford to sway public opinion, whether they are right or not.
Many people will be drawn to the group, there is sure to be at least one more that will crop up and have the same momentum. This will be for those who also know we need change but don't completely agree with the Tea Party. The fact is, it is all a distraction, the people who are paying the way for the current political parties will begin throwing money at which ever party looks to be taking the lead, some even pay both sides so they don't have to take any chances. All it takes is one individual to take bait, then we're in the same boat we are now.
Whether or not a grassroots movement can attract enough people isn't the real issue, but since you asked, my answer is yes. I just don't think it will make a difference even if they do. We have to remove the taproot to kill the weed, and to little is being done in an organized manor to accomplish that. We are divided, we are fighting each other, we keep taking the bait, so until we all come together, nothing will change.

Would it be wise to have both a republican and a democrat occupy the oval office?With the up-and-coming presidential election and both side expressing their willingness to be bipartisan, would it be best for these United States to come together in a more literally sense and work hand-in-hand?

And don't Google it."The Republican party goes right along, from year to year ... until it has come to think that the political power of the United States is its property, and that it is a sort of insolence for any other party to aspire to any part of that power. Nothing can be worse for a...
