A tea party look at 2013.

In 2013, the five-year old conservative grassroots upsurge has grabbed Washington, D.C. by the collar, tearing the city colloquially known as “Boomtown” in a conservative direction for the first time in decades.

Though the article sees far more success in 2013 for tea party politicians than I think is warranted, I also think it does outline the birth of the future. The left is increasingly old and out of touch. The tea party, small now, has got the right ideas, and will thus grow stronger with time — assuming of course that it stays true to those ideas.

    The Tea Party has been thoroughly Alynsky’d by the Left as well as progressive, status quo Republicans. I guess the question is whether the Tea Party can successfully use the healthcare fiasco and overreach to by the left to come back and become a force for Libertarian, if not Conservative, governance. I’m not very optimistic, but I live in a VERY Liberal part of California and perhaps I’m jaded by with daily contact with true believers in Obama and all that he represents.
