    to your question: what happened to the Tea Party in 2012 is simple, in my opinion: the Tea Party is a real, active phenomenon, though not remotely a grassroots movement, since it is funded and organized from the two-down by greedy, filthy rich billionaires who want to get more money and power by financial local groups of people throughout the country to do their bidding.

    They haven't gone away, but have their greatest success during periods of apathy and low voter turnout.

    Their next step: to try to cynically convince more Americans that voting and the political process is hopeless and useless, in order to create as much widespread apathy as possible, especially at a time when many Democratic voters tend not to vote in high numbers (so-called off-year elections, such as the one coming up in 2014).

    Like a virus, they are just in sleeper mode, waiting to strike when the country's most vulnerable.
