Tea Party VS Tea Party Patriots[edit]

A warning that there is a big difference between the leaders of Tea Party and Tea Party Patriots; The Tea Party Patriots was created as a undermining of the original Tea Party by Republican conservatives (Gingrich); and in 2012 promoted every RINO candidate and refused to support Ron Paul; After not being able to get Gingrich, Rick Santorum or Rick Perry finally pushed for Mitt Romney in the end; Their web site was a forum that is now closed but has moved to other online media; They have infused themselves so deeply into the phrase, most people have been unknowingly guided by their propaganda; to get an idea, read the this discussion page on wikipedia and you will see as well as removing Ron Paul's picture from the page (oh. I see they removed the large photo at the top of the page and put a small photo at the bottom of the page below Palin), the RINOS have placed people like Glenn Beck, Palin and others that really had nothing to do with the original movement and promote a convenient distortion with what the Founders intents truly were. The Wiki authors (propagandists) however are determined to keep true patriotism out of wikipedia as you will see when reading this talk page.

"Decline of the Tea Party" section: very undue[edit]

The section in this article entitled "2015-2016: decline of the Tea Party" is very UNDUE. Not only does it cite only two sources, but it is ridiculously long, detailing four possible reasons why the Tea Party is supposedly dead or declining. This section is interesting, but it puts it in Wikipedia's voice that the TPm is viewed as being dead or in decline when only two political commentators and their opinions are cited.

This section should be massively reduced, it should cite many more sources and/or views, and the supposed decline/death should not be framed as absolute or commonly agreed upon so early (or at least with only two opinions cited). --1990'sguy (talk) 03:53, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

Agreed. I think you can look around and find RS which says the Tea Party movement people were a key factor in Trump's successful election. If this were done the section would then need re-framing to something like "Tear Party support for Donald Trump". In fact, here is an article that says 'Trump didn't kill the TP. He is the TP' Point is, this is a very contemporary theme. An encyclopedic rendition will take some time -- perhaps several years. So I recommend removing the subsection and await more scholarly studies. – S. Rich (talk) 04:03, 5 December 2016 (UTC) 04:10, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
I added opposing viewpoints for the section. --1990'sguy (talk) 03:01, 8 December 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 16 February 2017[edit]

After the last line in the second paragraph, ending "...internal politics of the Republican Party.", I would like to insert the sentence below. My suggested sentence goes with the prior sentence in that the Tea Party Caucus represented a significant challenge to the Republican Party (at least in Congress).

Although the Tea Party is not a party in the classic sense of the word, research has shown that members of the Tea Party Caucus vote like an independent, third party in Congress.[1] (talk) 17:26, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
