13. There will certainly be a huge intra-party fight, but I see Big Money beating the tea-party wing.

Big Money can see the demographic disaster heading the way of their party with the aging and diminishing numbers of white voters. Big Money cares, not surprisingly, about money - not abortion, the Fed, Agenda 21, wanting 'our country back' or most other hot-button teabagger issues.

As long as socially conservative voters provided the electoral numbers to empower Big Money the latter was fine with supporting the former's favorite hot-button issues in the interest of achieving the political power that helps them make money. If socially conservative (to be kind to teabaggers), if not racist, voters become an impediment to Big Money, if BM sees that a socially moderate or liberal party gives them a better shot at power, it will be 'see-you-later tea party' time.

Today's teabaggers will then drift back to the libertarian party or even more-whacked out parties of the far-right from whence they came.
