4. Tea Partiers were the ones who really brought intimidation into the mainstream of local politics.

At the time it was somewhat shocking to see supposedly mature adults shouting down and getting face to face with others they did not agree with. IMO, this changed the strategy effectively to an approach where ideas and policies were no longer necessary. It was all about "the Constitution." Which of course wasn't true at all. It was all about intimidation. Once that became acceptable behavior to Republicans and their splinter groups it all rolled downhill.
