It seems to me that tea parties (peaceful protests) are a starting point for conservative action. What’s next?

In way of indirectly answering your question, one of the best Tea Party signs I've seen reads: PAY ATTENTION. THIS IS US BEING NICE.

I certainly don’t want things to come to violence, but I’m convinced that phone calls, petitions, withheld campaign contributions, and abstained votes haven’t worked.

I, personally, am at a loss as to how to make the Democrats realize they’ve gone too far and how to make the Republicans realize that they need to stop playing a gentleman’s game. And I don’t see any prominent Republicans with viable solutions either.

Certainly taking back the majorities in the House and Senate in 2010 is absolutely necessary, but how is that going to reverse the damage that the Democrats have inflicted? How is it going to convince Republicans to man up? The only sure consequence of taking back the majority is that it will embolden the Democrats to employ even nastier tactics in 2012.
