Republicans embrace civil war

Check this out from FreedomWorks CEO Matt Kibbe on whether Republicans will split into two parties:
"I think that's a real possibility because you're seeing this clash between the new generation and — to me, it's not just the old wing of the Republican Party versus the new wing —you're really seeing a disintermediation in politics.[...] Everything's more democratized and Republicans should come to terms with that. They still wanna control things from the top down and if they do that, there will absolutely be a split. But my prediction would be that we take over the Republican Party and they go the way of the whigs."
So, according to Kibbe, the GOP might split into two, but probably won't, not because tea partiers like him will convince their fellow Republicans to support their approach to things, but because his side will take control of the GOP and their opponents will just disappear. Kibbe probably doesn't realize it, but it's pretty obvious he's also predicting the GOP is doomed, because if your choice is between splitting a party in two and having one side kick another side out ... you're really just choosing between six on the one hand and a half-dozen on the other.
But Kibbe isn't the only one declaring war. So is the Chamber of Commerce:
A battle for control of the Republican Party has erupted as an emboldened Tea Party moved to oust senators who voted to reopen the government while business groups mobilized to defeat allies of the small-government movement.
“We are going to get engaged,” said Scott Reed, senior political strategist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.“The need is now more than ever to elect people who understand the free market and not silliness.”

The tea party should be outlawed as a terrorist group.

No clue what the Tea Party believes in.
If you did you would embrace it! Quit buying into the B.S. the left and and the MSM is saying.

We saw what the tea party believes in with the government shutdown, which is why tea party ratings have dropped so much.
