…Unbeknownst to you, I am surrounded by people who claim to identify with the tea party and/or go to the meetings. Most of my family , extended family, friends and associates for starters. When I ask them what they are willing to do to stop the runaway federal spending, they have nothing to offer. Well, they want their taxes reduced a bit. Maybe ease back a bit on defense spending, maybe. But not the veteran’s benefits. Most of them resent the welfare queens and food stamp recipients and most of them won’t say so out loud. Most are not thrilled with the bank bailouts. But, not one of them is willing to stop paying taxes. None of them would touch 95% of the federal budget. None of them would surrender any of their own federally funded benefits. So, where does that leave us? It leaves us with the conclusion that the members of the tea party want their goodies and are willing to pay enough tax dollars to keep them. But they don’t want to pay for some of the goodies other people get. It’s just simple logic.
It may be that you don’t quite grasp the extent of the gravy train. Or maybe you have so much money, it just doesn’t matter? The federal spending train subsidizes nearly everything in this country. And I mean everything. Would you really put all those people out of work – at one stroke?
If so, the anarchists would love to have you join their group.
