Letter: Drink up the tea party’s Kool-Aid


Drink up the tea party’s Kool-Aid

Why would I support all tea party candidates running against traditional Republicans in primary elections? Is it because I like the way the current “teas” have brought our democratic government to the Congress of “no”? The negative effects of sequestering are starting to kick in. The train wreck is on course.

There are four stimulus bills in Congress for 18 months that are going nowhere (two self-sustaining). If the “teas” weren’t mucking up everything, our recovery from the Bush-Greenspan disaster would be 25-35 percent ahead with a corresponding cut in unemployment.

So, you might ask, why do I support the “teas”? I think it will be cathartic to have more “teas” in the Nov. 14 ballot than ever. My bet is America will wake up to the long-term damage and save America. Don’t you just love Sen. Ron Paul? He even hates Governor Christie! I’d like to see them duke it out. It looks like McCormick from Paul’s state is going bye-bye.
