Why we went to Washington, D.C.

Why some of us went to Washington, D.C., recently, myself and my wife included, is because our very existence as a nation is at stake.

Our federal government has run over our Constitution with out of control spending and takeover. Most of what the Congress does is unconstitutional.

The only thing that those elected officials in Washington fear is the voice of the American people. In person!

That is why we took our time and money to leave our comfortable living room and join the recent rally in Washington to protest the virtual takeover of one-sixth of the nation’s economy.

Last night, I was reading a letter from another patriot published in your paper, “Was it worth it?” and thinking, “This guy went for the same reason(s) that we went.” Then when I got to the bottom of the page, I realized that I knew this person.

It was Woody. Even though we didn’t see each other at the rally, we both agreed that it was worth the time and effort to let ourselves be heard and will do it again when necessary.

I challenge each of you: get off your sofa, stop yelling at the TV, and join with us the next time we rally in D.C. I will hopefully be putting together a bus from Peachtree City.

You may write me at jcurrie6@bellsouth.net and request that we reserve a spot for you on the next Patriot bus, bound for D.C.

Just what has the Tea Party changed?

I simply see the Congress ignoring you folks.

I don't necessarily disagree with the Tea Party, I just see it as impotent against the power in Washington. I also see it as a way for the Democrats to remain in control of the Congress and Executive.

The only yelling I will be doing will be at the voting booth. Since most of the Congressmen and Senators up for election in Georgia are conservative compared to the rest of Congress, I don't see the benefit.

Please enlighten us to what you guys have accomplised with all your fuss. I will also remind you that all politics are local, that's where you should start.

You are correct. Westmoreland, Saxby, and the real estate guy...wonderful GA reps.
All politics "is" local! (Tip O'Neill wrote a book by that title. I thought "are local" was correct until then!

I am an Independent, but I see the "Tea" people as just another fissure of the republican party---you know, guns, abortions, welfare, insurance, taxes, wars, bloviating about vets (thank you for your "service", divorces, disciplined children--by hitting--, restaurants, fishing with beer in hand, beaches, good old corporations, white collar theft and crime OK if no one got shot, stealing from convenience stores, 30 years, keep schools segregated (not by color---by $$$), etc.

I don't think the tea people realize that we no longer are fighting "King George!" We run the USA, we!

If they don't like the "majority rules," then vote in a dictator. Newt will do! Or Krautheimmerfussel. Just not Rush or Sean or the two witches. Nor Gore or Schummer.
