Is ‘Tea Party’ a step to breaking up US?

Now that the so call “Tea Party” seems to be in control of Congress one can’t help but wonder is this another step on the road to the eventual break-up of the U.S. Very few countries as divided as the U.S. are able to function as one for long.
Frankly I would like to live in a country more in tune to my moral beliefs, which don’t come close to those of the “Tea Party’ members I have heard about. I don’t want to live in a country where there is no involvement of government except to spend tax dollars on one military adventure after another.
Governments are not corporations nor should they be run like corporation which can and do fail and an alarming rate every year.
