I say, don't count they @ss then. The end result will be that they will have less political power. Maybe loss a few congressional districts and some federal funding. They don't want government funding, they don't have to get it. Stop giving the tea-baggers Medicaid, Medicare, Veteran's Benefits, Social Security, ban them from all national parks and recreational areas, BLM and Corp of Engineers land, etc. That should save the government a nice chunk of change.
I wonder when they'll figure out they are going to have less power, not more as a result of being influenced by nutjobs?
