Tea Party Patriots are your neighbors and countrymen

A recent letter writer could not be more incorrect in his assumption that “the Tea Party people” agreed with the Bush administration on their out-of-control spending.

We did not want the prescription benefits to go into effect because the money was not in place to pay for them. We did not want the administration to allow illegal immigrants to go to the front of the line and become American citizens. We wanted and still want our borders to be closed to illegal immigrants and terrorists. We need the excess spending to stop (bailouts, health care takeover, and stimulus packages). The politicians need to fix Medicare and Social Security, which are the real emergencies in this country.

Most Tea Party Patriots are not politicos; we are your neighbors and countrymen. We just want to save our Republic before it goes bankrupt. True patriots step up when enemies both foreign and domestic try to transform this country into something we do not recognize nor want. We now have a forum to discuss our concerns and seek solutions; please join us.

Freedom isn’t free; you must fight for it.
