Letter: Tea party
October 10, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

Many people are criticizing the tea party for the debacle in Washington.

There is no tea party. There are people who are tired of big government and high taxes. These are mostly older people who have worked and paid taxes and bills for years. Now they are portrayed as radical nut cases. Help me understand how they are a threat to our security. We are condemning our children and grandchildren to poverty and insurmountable debt. It is true that we will not be around to face their wrath. However, it might be nice to think that they would thank us rather than hate us. There are even rumblings on Facebook and other sources about their feelings today. Maybe we should listen?
