The tea party is still active. However, whereas in earlier years more than 50 percent of people supported us, today that number is 25 to 30 percent at best!
It is pretty clear that we are fighting a battle with these obstacles:
- not wanted by enough voters;
- not wanted by the GOP;
- demonized by the media;
- demonized by Congress and the Oval Office;
- treated unfairly at every turn by IRS and others;
- blamed when tea-party-backed candidates do not win;
- regarded as second-class citizens, troublemakers, extremists, etc.;
- not able to start third party for fear of dividing the GOP;
- not effective, even in large numbers, because the media REFUSE to accurately cover the events;
- our opposition has zero ethics and lies to the media about us and we can never correct the record, alienating more voters and support and donations;
- tea-party candidates get little or no support from the RNC;
- Obama has developed a massive "coalition" of liberals for 2012, and these people are still in play for 2014. He can "pay off" his people with government-paid benefits or favors–we cannot;
- about 50 percent pay zero income taxes and almost one-third of the people are on the dole. These people will not be convinced by us promising "jobs" when the opposition is promising "freebies."

I am ready, willing and able to support a march on D.C. Will it really help? Will there be massive news coverage? No and No. What will be the point without a winning strategy?
My belief is that we must confront the GOP and tell them either to fully integrate us and they, themselves, become true conservatives – or, face a third party: the Libertea Party.
