      I hate to disagree with you, so I will. The economy was not brought back from the brink. It is, in fact, worse, and the deficit is at an all-time high and climbing. The president is incompetent and has horrible advisers. Our country is heading down a union-led slope toward destruction. Our way of life is on the line. The Tea Party, if it wins ONE election, when it was founded months ago will be a complete success and its ranks will rise regardless of results. This is not going to be some slick fly-by-night fad. We are angry, and it's going to show. The Republicans who lost deserved to lose. We are not Republicans. We are not conservative. We are revolutionists determined to return to fair taxation and proper representation. Representation where the candidate actually follows the doctrines he was elected on. You have no idea of the point, scope or purpose of our party.
