In defense of the Tea PartyWritten by Admin

To the Editor:
I am a member of the Tea Party-The 9-12 group.
I am an American mom and grandparent. Prayer is an important part of my life. I pray before meetings. There are clergymen in our organization who lead in prayer. I never ask you for your party-affiliation or religion. I am simply an American who loves this country and wants to give my children and grandchildren freedom, not massive debt that can never be repaid.
I fight to get the government out of every aspect of my life. I fight for seniors as Obamacare will cut Medicare by $500 billion while doctors are already turning Medicare patients away. Doctors canâ€™t make it on what Medicare reimburses them.
I want to continue to live in a free country, to keep my healthcare needs between me and my doctor, not to be determined by a bureaucrat in Washington. Your doctor has to obey that bureaucrat or he will face a fine of $100,000. If he disobeys a second time, he goes to jail.
I do not want the government telling me and my family what we can and cannot eat. I see my fellow Americans facing massive unemployment. I blame this on an oversized, intrusive government, over-regulation and taxation, the redistribution of the wealth and punishment of success.
If you share these same sentiments and value the American way of life, donâ€™t disparage the Tea Party movement, join it. Help ensure your children will have a better future. There is no greater legacy we can offer them. These are my values: honesty, reverence, hope, thrift, humility, charity, sincerity, moderation, hard work, courage, personal responsibility, and gratitude. If you donâ€™t share these values, then there is nothing more I can say.
Finally, my guiding values are all contained in these three words â€” faith, hope and charity.
