In Washington, DC, the establishment on both sides continue their charade to avoid the “fiscal cliff.” All the while, Tea Party Patriots continue to push on in a direction of positive change.

Yesterday, following news that Gov. Nikki Haley had named Rep. Tim Scott to Succeed Sen. Jim DeMint in the United States Senate, representing South Carolina, we released the following statement, “This is a positive step for the Tea Party Patriots and our principles of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets. Tim Scott has taken our core values seriously in the House and we have every reason to expect similar, principled behavior in the Senate.” While the GOP continues to lick its wounds from the election in November and the consultant class and political pundits talk about the need for Republicans to diversity, the Tea Party movement has been doing this all along, with elected officials such as Tim Scott, Nikki Haley, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Deb Fischer, Michele Bachmann, and even the election of Allen West in 2010, the Tea Party has been all inclusive in terms of racial and gender lines from the very beginning.
