Rand Paul is going to give the Tea Party response to tonight's State of the Union address. This one fact basically sums up the reason the Republican party is struggling.
Republicans should demand that the Tea Party declare itself a political party and break off from the GOP. The Tea Party wants to have its cake and eat it to. They don't want to do the work to become a legitimate political party...they would rather remain a special interest group and..like parasites feed off a clearly weakened Republican Party.
I am calling on the media to refuse to give air time to Rand Paul and the Tea Party response. The Tea Party is not a registered political party in this country and these responses have always been limited to political party. I call on the Republican party to take back their party..to demand once and for all tha the Tea Party become its own political party.
As long as the GOP allows itself to remain divided in this way...their power and influence will continue to weaken.
