Won't happen. A 3rd party destabilizes the system, making things less predictable, and will result in blame for lost elections. The current 2-party system is stable and predictable, which is what the guys in power like.

Which of these principles are you against?

------------------------------

The Tea Party

OUR CORE PRINCIPLES

FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY means not overspending, and not burdening our children and grandchildren with our bills. In the words of Thomas Jefferson: “the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity [is] swindling futurity on a large scale.” A more fiscally responsible government will take fewer taxes from our paychecks.

CONSTITUTIONALLY LIMITED GOVERNMENT means power resides with the people and not with the government. Governing should be done at the most local level possible where it can be held accountable. America’s founders believed that government power should be limited, enumerated, and constrained by our Constitution. Tea Party Patriots agree. The American people make this country great, not our government.

FREE MARKET ECONOMICS made America an economic superpower that for at least two centuries provided subsequent generations of Americans more opportunities and higher standards of living. An erosion of our free markets through government intervention is at the heart of America’s current economic decline, stagnating jobs, and spiraling debt and deficits. Failures in government programs and government-controlled financial markets helped spark the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression. Further government interventions and takeovers have made this Great Recession longer and deeper. A renewed focus on free markets will lead to a more vibrant economy creating jobs and higher standards of living for future generations.

What does that have to do with the OP? Your post is about the Tea Party, the OP is asking about tea baggers (whatever that is).

My question is: When will good smart Republicans embrace the Core Principles of the Tea Party? The Tea Party is not a radical organization. Since when is embracing the founding principles of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights some far out concept?

Until they do, they do not stand a chance. I would love to get a third party, a truly Conservative Party get off the ground. It would most likely take a party that could be described as "Liberal with Sanity" as Ed Koch identified himself. May he rest in peace.

Personally, I believe liberalism should be a personal, not an effort to control a government. We should allow our charity to be determined by us, not by those around us. Again, being charitable is a personal thing.
