Ultra Conservative Wing Of The Republican Party. The Tea Party Is Not A Movement Anymore. The Tea Party Is Now A Political Force.
The Tea Party isn't ever going to break away from the republican party. If anything the Tea Party will, "Consume" the republican party and become the new GOP. A third party of substantial strength as the Tea Party can become is a disaster even for the Tea Party. The best path for the Tea Party is to consume the GOP or at least the GOP leadership. This will become reality with a few wins under the Tea Party belts and creating realistic plans to stuff money into the pockets of U.S. citizens through increased job opportunities and good pay through a high demand for employees by employers.
