The Republican Party MUST align itself with the Tea Party if it is going to Win Elections

For over a decade, following my move to Colorado Springs from Southern California over 22 years ago, I found it so refreshing to read the Opinion section of the Colorado Springs Gazette because it exuded patriotism, freedom and liberty and was reasonably consistent in advocating for those views.  To my increasing disappointment, I now find those views being compromised.  

A recent Gazette editorial, dated March 1, 2014, entitled "Tea party and the Rest of the GOP should Work Together to Win" seems to be accurate on its face, but the tone of this missive not too subtly suggests that it is basically the Tea Party that must move more to the center, compromising its values in order to create harmony and win elections in the future.  As stated in its closing paragraph, "Moderate, mainstream Republicans need to stop marginalizing more conservative factions of the party.  Tea Partiers need to stop acting as if Republicans sell their souls to the "establishment" the moment they ascend to leadership or cooperate with Democrats." "In politics, victories are won through alliances and compromise."
