Who cares about this conference, there is no difference between Democrat and Republican politicians, they both support global meddling while working families at home struggle. We need DK to run as an independent for president in 2012 so we can really take our country back.

You go girl!!! That is what America needs.....true grit! Thank you Jenny Beth and the Tea Party Patriots for being "party blind!" I also have learned just because a politician is a Republican doesn't mean they stand with America or her founding principles.

Keep up the great work and God Bless you and your organization. Our founding fathers are smiling down upon you as you carry the torch for freedom this Independence weekend.

Thank you!

PS (I'm also writing a check so you will continue your fight!)

The Republican Party will not be given a 'pass' for 'business-as-usual-' politics.
This election or the next, the Public that IS paying the bills will make another purchase: a broom...

Keep on them. Americans are not as uninformed as both establishments want to believe. For now, we're trying it their way and trying to reform the DC culture through the two-party system. If that doesn't work, then Americans have no choice but to dismantle both of their houses. We are the boss, chumps, and we're tired of your games. Cut spending and cut the size of government, or we're cutting your job. End of story. America is the land of We the People - not We the Government.

Wish I could have been there. Boehnor and the entire republican party is a comeplete sell out for us. Boehnor gets on tv and makes like he's going to stand strong, then wimps out behind closed doors. He's already proven he can't be trusted. Power, leadership, & corruption all go together, while our country goes down in flames. Why hasn'the puut pressure on obama about the borders, the debt, the muslim problem growing in this country, and now obama's going to meet with the brotherhood. Oh hell their all related (the muslims) to obama anyway.

It is time the GOP was told It is going to take more than just paper shaking, saber rattling, and gum bumping to get the job done...SO FAR...I really just haven't seen it. Seems the dems are always half a mile ahead, and the GOP is just plays catch up, yet they never really do...

Way to go! It is high time these R's get a wake up call. The GOP is crowded with individuals who want to win elections. Okay, I get it. But electing people with an R is no good if it's just a progressive with an R.
I've take lots of heat from GOP'ers at all levels - even down at the county level. Too many people believe being Republican is more important than being conservative.
What the GOP fails to realize is that if they would promote conservatism, the votes would follow.

Every member of the Tea Party is a leader. The Media has no clue who the Tea Party is. Our elected officials know who we are. Tea Party will fine good replacements for 2012 cycle and even replace some from 2010.

She has it right. Instead of ringing our hands over whether the Tea Party and the Republican Party can remain united we should be replacing RINOs, such as Boehner and Bucshon in the upcoming primary. The reason we keep getting betrayed is that we support the sociopath who conducts a poll to find out what to tell us, then talks the talk. If we continue to wait for people to run for the office then support them we will always get sociopaths, because self service is what motivates them. We need to start drafting form within, starting with Jenny. If we elect people like her, from among our own ranks, will we have to beg them to not pander to the left ?

In addition to Martin's speech, the convention featured a number of small sessions with speakers from such groups as the Heritage Foundation and School Choice Ohio, and displays set up at tables by local and national organizations including the John Birch Society, the Buckeye Firearms Association and Ohioans for Healthcare Freedom.

One speaker, Matthew Spalding of the Heritage Foundation, gave a history lesson, focusing on the Founding Fathers.

"American history is made up of turning points," he said. "This is a turning point."

At this turning point, is the old confederacy attempting to refight and win the civil war with anti-union and right to work rhetoric?

The turning point was with Woodrow Wilson, this road has just led us to the edge of the cliff which the current holder of the office of president is intent in pushing the Citizens of the United States of America over.
If you expect to have a real say in who is the next president - you better register as a major party candidate and work from within. If you are a Democrat - you better find someone to run against Obama - before it's too late. If you are Republican - you better study their actions and not just listen to political speak.
and if you are really and truly looking to back away from the cliff and get back onto the United States and the Constitution - you better pay attention to the Senate and the House of Representatives more than whoever sits in the white house on Pennsylvania avenue.
you'd better forget your religion as a factor in whoever runs - it means NOTHING to a politician - look at Romney (the RINO) or at Harry Reid (the liberal socialist democrat)- both are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
If you want to keep the Constitution as the document our country is run on - you better elect constitutionalist senators and representatives and President that will reestablish the supreme court that will make judgments based on that document and not on any previous judicial precedent.
Don't get caught up in the little idiosyncrasies of an individual such as religion, look at their core value, where they come from, their education, their political beliefs, and where they stand on the Constitution and the RIGHTS of CITIZENS of the United States.

The real problem in our Congress - house and senate is that it is PARTY controlled. if you don't have control of the PARTY, even if they are the majority party - you will get nothing. The Republican Party is still mostly controlled by "progressives", we tend to call the RINO's, but in fact they are those in current power - Boehner, McCain and their ilk.

If conservatives want to change direction from the progressive cliff we are fighting to keep from falling over - they will have to take over the party leadership - and win the majorities in the house and senate.

If you want a third party, you don't have time to organize this round, but perhaps right after the elections in 2012, you can start one that would maybe elect enough Representatives in 2014 to make a dent in the two party system that controls our government. Otherwise - you better take over one party or the other.

Cain declares there is no racism in the Tea Party - thanks for killing that idea.

I'm all for the Tea Party breaking away from the Republicans and electing their own candidate for President, preferably Ron Paul or Michele Bachmann. That will guarantee victory for the Democrats in 2012.

They scare me too! I think we can count on the Tea Party and Republicans to start tearing each other apart very soon!
Greed and arrogance run rampant in both parties and they can't mesh for long.
