It's Your Party...Go Ahead and Cry

I am a proud and unapologetic fiscal conservative in favor of small government and low taxes. But I just don’t get this tea party business. I know, I know…You’re mad as hell and you’re not gonna take it anymore. Umm…newsflash…yes you are. You are going to pay more taxes. The federal government is going to be bigger than ever and you…yes you…allowed it to happen.

You chose John McCain as your candidate. Then you thought, albeit too late, that maybe he wasn’t the best choice because you really weren’t sure whether or not he was a Maverick…whatever that means. You let the DNC control the campaign and well…you know the result.

So, I have to ask, what did you expect? Barack Obama ran on growing government, an arguably socialist agenda, and the ‘patriotic’ act of raising taxes on families. He, alongside Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are doing just as they said they would. And, now you want to raise some hell?

I’m not sure what you expect to gain from these tea parties. But if it makes you feel good to gather around with likeminded individuals to wave signs, give speeches, sing songs and do whatever else it is that people do at these things. Have at it. Personally, I have better things to do with my time, like watch paint dry.
