The Daily Bell – Republicans Rage as the Great Burning Arrives
Republicans descend into civil war as Tea Party movement vows to drive party further to the right … The Republican Party was last night descending into a civil war over control of its political future, as recriminations raged about its failure to oust Barack Obama and take control of the US Senate.
Some conservatives warned colleagues that they risked annihilation by refusing to change and appeal to the women, younger and ethnically-diverse voters who had stood by Barack Obama since 2008. Yet many supporters of the Tea Party movement – whose agenda was rebuked across the US – claimed Mitt Romney had actually not been conservative enough, vowing to drive the party further to the Right. – UK Telegraph
Dominant Social Theme: Republicans are out of touch. Democrats are not. The Tea Party is dead.
Free-Market Analysis: Post-election, the US Republican Party will go about the business of tearing itself to pieces, as well it should.

It is important to assert these things because the stealing of an election has already gone down the memory hole. Of course, in this analysis, we should offer a further reality: Ron Paul is not insane. He likely didn’t ever intend to win and sabotaged his own campaign in evident and obvious ways.
But we don’t begrudge him that. He intended to educate and succeeded beyond anything he’d ever imagined. He succeeded because in the US – in the West in general – there’s a great craving for freedom and economic literacy. This craving, nurtured by Paul’s financial literacy, has been inordinately strengthened by his four-year historical and economic lecture tour.
