I’m not reading all that much into New Hampshire. If South Carolina and following primaries go this way, then we’re definitely in trouble. I don’t think they will.

We will probably look back on this as Mitt’s last hurrah.

The Tea Party is alive and well. We just need to move it out of the GOP. It is time to start a new party.

I think you have it backward. The Republican Party’s destruction will be complete. They are about to join the Whigs on the ash heap of history. The Tea Party will live on.

Too late to start thinking about starting a third party. At least for this cycle. A third party will ensure the TEA Party is the party of irrelevance.

The MSM is saying we need to hurry up and settle on someone. Why the hurry? Still 48 states and a convention to go. The tea party is here but has been divided more than coopted. Unfortunately some people don’t know the difference between a MSM version of conservative aka east coast moderate, and a constitutional conservative. But I think we are seeing the power struggle in the GOP between the real conservatives and the progressives. If they choose the wrong path it will be the end.

You are 100% right!
We are screwed. The Tea Party did not take over the Republican Party....they destroyed us. Now we will have every RINO candidate shoved down our throats. The Dems and the Rebubs are one and the same. They took away every real Conservative from us. Sarah Palin, Herman Cain, Michelle Bachman, and now they will destroy Newt and Santorum! I do not know if America will ever be free again, or have truw free elections. We have no real choices, because they are made for us. ALL of the media are now paid operatives for the elites. All hope is gone....

Without ethics capitalism is doomed to corruption.

It just means that people will leave your store for a better store.

I'd like folks to shop and work in America.

The closest thing to a TEA Party candidate in this race is Ron Paul and he’s labeled as a kook.

I thought the objective is beating Klownie the Kenyan? Quit your whining.

I read the same post back on the night when Dumbo won the election and the best posts was when Freepers who owned business wanted to fire every Obama voter in their company. That’s the Freeper I want to read about...not this sob story.

Romney will win the primary and then go on to win the election because enough Obama 2008 voters will not vote for Obama (nor Romney) in 2012. Bank on it. In the end central banksters win once more while we the people lose again.

Mitt Romey, the central bankster Goldman Sachs candidate.

The Tea Party has been co-opted by the GOP. The economy is no longer an issue for those who have co-opted the Tea Party. They talk of everything else other than the economy - national security, abortion, religion and winnability. These issues induce fear into the sheep and they are willing to forget the economy and fall in line behind the GOP establishment. The candidates in the primaries are establishment candidates who are seasoned politicians.

Irrelevancy is a term I’d apply to the Republican party. I’d be embarrassed to call myself a Republican.

I think we can still strike that populist chord while standing by conservative values.

I really do, But I am counting on a populous that isn’t easily distracted.

I agree, I have no candidate in this race. That’s why I’m anxious to start a new party.
