The Tea Party has been a way for the American people to express how they feel about politics and the expanding government. Although the Tea Party is a conservative movement, there have been no political ties between them and the Republican Party. That is, until now, as the Republican Party chose to start a caucus defending the grassroots movement. The Republican Party is hoping to gain some momentum by making association with the popular group.
According to the Washington Post, the Republican Party started a caucus to defend this grass-roots conservative movement. The Republican Party is defending the Tea Party, expressing its belief that the movement is a positive force for American politics. The Republican Party also is defending the Tea Party by claiming they are not a racist organization, and that race is not a motive within the Tea Party. The Tea Party Caucus will also create a way for Republicans to capture the heart of the Tea Party movement without getting involved in their more political and controversial issues.
This could be a very good development for the Tea Party to finally be recognized as a real movement, rather than as a racially-motivated group. The Tea Party holds values that the answer is not bigger government, and that a smaller government is the only out of the economic situation. The Tea Party is not affiliated with any political organization, and they like it that way, although they do have mostly conservative views.
This development might harm the Tea Party in a way because they are really a neutral organization, and do not serve either the Democratic Party or Republican Party. This development might end up making their grassroots movement more popular, and it might actually increase their support. It seems logical that the Republican Party would back the Tea Party movement because they are both mostly conservative groups, and hold a lot of the same values.
For the November midterm elections, this might be a good thing because it will give the Republican Party more support. The Republican Party is largely favored to win a lot of the elections, so this will only add to their momentum going into the elections. This might be what the Republican Party needs to gain support from an independent voter, and also from the grassroots community. Both of these groups can work together to get things done if the Republican Party seriously follows the rules and motivations of the Tea Party.
The Republican Party would need to show that they also do not like big government and that they are willing to reduce the government and stop the spending. The Tea Party is mostly concerned about spending by the government, and the lack of control over personal freedom. If the Republican Party can stop spending money and can reduce the size of government, then the two groups are likely to benefit one another. The Tea Party can help the Republican Party gain control over Congress and win back support in much-needed areas. Since both are conservative groups, it can help the Republican Party win back Congress, and then win back the American people.
