Woot! Tea Party For the Loss!

Rasmussen reports that the Tea Party beats out the GOP in a three-way generic ballot. Read that sentence again. If the Tea Party beats the GOP in a three-way contest, then how does the third element of the three-way contest come out?

You guessed it! The Democrats win again.

"In a three-way Generic Ballot test, the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds Democrats attracting 36% of the vote. The Tea Party candidate picks up 23%, and Republicans finish third at 18%. Another 22% are undecided."

Allow me to say this very clearly: If you like Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid running the country, then by all means vote for your Tea Party candidate and we will wallow in another 40 year mire of Democratic control in order to make a political point.

If, on the other hand, you are willing to vote for Republican candidates, we might actually have a chance of protecting this country from those who are running it today. I can hear what you're saying, "They're all the same! Vote them all out! It's time for a third party!"

Look, I get it. The Republicans spent money like drunken frat boys with their first credit cards, but at least we didn't have to wonder if they wanted to see dead terrorists or not. At least we didn't worry about whether the Republicans wanted to keep the country safe. At least we didn't have to worry about the Republicans promoting and funding the killing of the unborn. At least we didn't have to worry that the Republicans were so in love with the likes of Cuba, Colombia, and Venezuela that they were violently shifting our nation in that direction. At least with the Republicans we were not concerned whether or not capitalism would survive another few years. At least with the Republicans we did not have to worry about whether those in power were openly hostile to business and the concept of profits.

I love Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin just as much as any other conservative out there, but their apparent push for a third party will spell a long painful death for the GOP. And before you say, "Good! That's what the party deserves!" Think about what you're saying. The Tea Party movement is not going to be able to compete with an entrenched Democratic party, so in killing the GOP, you breathe even more life into the Democratic party.

Think about this very carefully before you pull the lever next time you're in the voting booth.

  1. Look, "I get, what you get" but the GOP is acting like leftists because they were the dominent party. If they hope to win an election with their candidates then maybe they should soul search their stances and act more like conservatives (after all it is what they claim to be). They need to be afraid of exactly the thing you speak to get them to come back to their principles. If not, then that 23% will grow exponentially and will beat out the socialists regarding of what this poll says today. The overwhelming majority do not want Pelosi, Obama, Reid and the rest of the criminal socialist bums (including some republicans). People are fed up with party line crap because it gop lefties saying they were republicans (think McCain, Olympia Snow, Arlen Spector, etc). Even if the Democrats win by this percentage polling, it won't be incumbents who are arden socialists, but more centrist newbies that appeal to these very same tea party constituents.
