Occupy the Tea

The Tennessee Tea Party has the potential to do geat things politically, if they would organize in the way that successful political movements do:

The problems with the Tea Party in Tennessee are why longtime conservative activists like Bill Hemrick, who gave an excellent interview in The Tennessean, seem to be more disenchanted with the movement in this State. The Tea Party has had opportunities handed to its activists and they cannot unite, and they don't seem to know (and it sometimes seems that some do not care) how to organize a successful Statewide political movement. So-called "Tea Party" candidates can't win Statewide races, and as we saw in the Governor's race, the consevative vote not only divided, but so did supposed Tea Party support.

The Tea Party in Tennessee still has an opportunity to be a major force in State politics, but they need clear goals and objectives and leaders who everyone in the movement reconizes as such and are willing to follow-sound familiar?

Yes. Sounds a lot like 1 Samuel 8.

Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah, And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations. But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the LORD.
And the LORD said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.
