From the womb of liberalism, a Harvard government and sociology professor writes . . .
“Tea Party forces will still win in the end,” Theda Skocpol writes, unless moderate Republicans can defeat them. Skocpol concedes that the Tea Party “will triumph just by hanging on long enough” as Americans are getting fed up by “our blatantly manipulated democracy and our permanently hobbled government.”
As long as there are establishment (he calls them moderate) Republicans not willing to follow their core beliefs of limited government, one that does not usurp our liberty, personal and economic freedom, and fiscal responsibility, the Tea Party is here to stay.
Whether Republicans gain majority status in the Senate in 2014 and win the White House in 2016 depends on which “party” establishment Republicans fight against, the Democratic party or the Tea Party.
