"They need to break ties with republicans and be a pure party of
constitutional ideals."That party already exists. It is called
the Libertarian party.
The "business" Republican's opposition to Sen Cruz & Sen Lee
seems much like the Tory opposition of those signing the Declaration of
Independence and blaming them for the Revolutionary War. Of course they were
responsible for the Revolutionary War, but they stood up for what they believed
or there would be no United States of America. Well done Senator Cruz, Lee and
those in the House that had the courage to oppose a failing government, let by
Cruz is conducting a kind of "Triumphal Defeat" tour. The government
shutdown cost the economy billions, and the GOP got exactly nothing from it
except public derision. But that doesn't stop Ted, who now joins the
"pretend winner' club.

@Smokey Lonesome"I believe their numbers will grow substantially in
the next election cycle"The Tea Party is scoring their lowest
favorability marks ever in recent polls. I suppose they could pick up a few
seats in those heavily gerrymandered Republican districts though. Maybe they can
let Dems keep or take a few more Senate seats like they did in Missouri (Akin),
Indiana (Mourdock), Delaware (O'Donnell), Colorado (I forget who they used
in that one...), and Nevada (Angle).
The way the Tea Party raises the hair on the neck of Democrats and Republicans
alike is evidence of their effectiveness. I believe their numbers will grow
substantially in the next election cycle and offices held will increase many
times over. They need to break ties with republicans and be a pure party of
constitutional ideals. The RINOS have shown their true colors!
I know one thing that "means for the Country" is that if this guy is
nominated by the Teapublican party, we are in for at least four more years of a
Democrat in the White House and that in turn would mean that almost for sure a
liberal majority on the Supreme Court. Be careful what you wish for!
Cruz is doing what we need in Comgress. He is standing for principle and
eventually more voters will come to appreciate his fight for the Constitution,
less spending and smaller, less intrusive government. What is wrong with that,
unless you are for those things? Are you? Do you know what that means for the
