Something about the whole Tea Party thing bothers me. Perhaps it is the fact that it is “non-partisan” and not Republican. Maybe it is the fact that we are dealing with group-think, protests, and mobs. I don’t like any of those options.
There are things about the Tea Parties that concern me, primarily that the argument seems to be against Barack Obama, and (at least locally) is ignoring the duplicity of our local members of the House and Senate.
I don’t know about you, but I am fully aware that funding comes out of the House Appropriations Committee. While the POTUS can put in a funding request and budget, the POTUS gets NOTHING without the approval of the US House of Representatives and the US Senate.
GET IT – If you want to do something constructive, hit the elected officials who are not representing you – and who are responsible for the spending. Frankly, never in my life have I felt so ill-represented now that Harry Teague is representing the 2nd District here in NM.
I still feel this is more libertarian than GOP.
