Tea Party Should Stay with Ideas

leave a comment »

I’m pleased that the Republicans are wanting to adopt Tea Party Ideas.  I would like to see both major parties do that.  But I think it would be a mistake for Tea Partiers to allow themselves to be absorbed by either party.  They should remain devoted to ideas and the Constitution.  Once they become identified with a political party, they will be dismissed as just partisans.  In standing for ideas they hold the high ground.

A new Gallup/USA Today poll shows great public respect for tea-party movement ideas. In the survey, 71 percent of the respondents say they want GOP leaders to look at tea party positions when developing policy, Politico reports. Among that 71 percent, 42 percent says listening to tea party ideas is “very important,” while 29 percent say it’s was “somewhat important.”
Among Republicans, 88 percent say it’s important for party leadership to take tea party ideas into account. And just over half of that 88 percent say it’s very important, while 35 percent say it’s somewhat important.
Among independents, 72 percent of those polled said it is important for Republican congressional leaders to consider tea party ideas. Of that total, 46 percent say tea party ideas are very important, while 26 percent say they are somewhat important.
