Is it time for a third party?
Patriot Update – Sean Aland – 2/20/2013
The Tea Party, despised by both establishment Democrats and Republicans, is the new representative of conservatives. It stands for the conservative, Christian, constitutional, capitalist, small-government ideology.
Simply stated the contemporary Democratic Party represents the far left, the Republican Party represents the moderate left, and the Tea Party represents real conservatives who are trying to salvage our country.
Currently both parties suffer from an identity crisis with Blue Dog Democrats supporting socialism and the Republican Party abandoning its base.
The mission of The Tea Party is simple and still relevant. It calls for elected officials and the bureaucrats who administer their policies to follow the Constitution and listen to the people they represent.
The Tea party supports candidates who commit to the original founding principles of the Constitution: limited federal government, state’s rights, free markets, balanced budgets, no deficits and a strong military. They believe in the basic principles of freedom and liberty vs. a Government that knows best. Remind establishment politicians that they work for the people.
Apparently a lot of the conservative base did not vote because they felt ignored by a GOP controlled by moderates. The GOP representative was asked “at what point will the Republican Party stop ignoring the base of conservative Christians while chasing after moderates?” His answer was that, “we tell candidates that it is OK to believe the conservative Christian stuff, just don’t tell anyone.” His statement validated the belief of real conservatives—moral and economic conservatives—that the mainstream Republican Party seeks power at the expense of morals and integrity.
Perhaps it is time to adopt the European model of two major political parties, the Socialist party and the Conservative party. The progressive Democrats and RINO’s would feel more at home in a Socialist Party , and the Blue Dog Democrats and GOP conservatives that still have an ounce of character could start rebuilding a constitutional, small government, Conservative Party under the tutelage of the Tea Party Patriots.
