"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

The Republican establishment is totally big government, that's the only way you can garner a lifetime career on the taxpaper's dime. 

The Tea Party, libertarians and many conservatives despise big government and when given the chance will slice and dice the behemoth government to small pieces.  Lifetime careers in Washington will be adversely affected. 

It doesn't take a genius to see that people that believe the way I do are a clear and present threat to not only the Democrat Party, but the Republican Party as well. 

This is what we are up against, so we need to rid ourselves of any thought that getting an establishment Republican in office over an establishment Democrat is the lesser of two evils.  They both want the same thing, and they are willing to not only "reach across the aisle" - but they are willing to bed down with the other side too.

That explains why both parties are against the Tea Party, doesn't it?
