Splitting the Party?

I'm hearing that the TEA Party Movement is "splitting the Republican Party". The TEA Party groups should fall in line with the GOP. "A third party candidate will assure Democrat wins".

No. TEA Party Groups (heretofore referred to as TPG's) are and should be non-aligned. Republicans have shown themselves to be largely little different from Democrats. TPG's are concerned about Big Government intrusion and high taxes. Republicans are doing no more to fix that little problem than Democrats. I will vote my conscience, not for party.

TPG's should not court candidates or political parties, but rather be courted.

Jim Ott....are you listening?
