The Tea Party is not the voters’ enemy

There are too many Democrat voters who believe their future is merely an extension of the past. “My granddaddy was a Democrat, my PaPa was Democrat and by golly, I’m gonna vote Democrat!”

Tea Party thinking (like conservatism) is based in part on the right of equal opportunity. A lot of Democrat party thinking is based in part on equal outcome. Tea Party folks give a lot to charity. Hard-line Democrats want the government to do all the giving to people. Government giving is another term for vote buying.

Obama, Biden, Reid and Pelosi’s opposition to the Tea Party is based on generalizations, insults and outright lies. From this kind of leadership, no wonder our country is so divided. The truth needs to be said.

Voters need to understand that that Tea Party is not your enemy. The Tea Party is a reawakening of people and voters who say “enough is enough” and decided to get involved rather than sit on their hands and let our country go to pot.

They are good, God-loving, patriotic Americans who love our country. Isn’t this the kind of America you want to live in?
