Tea party ex­plained

Austin American-Statesman - - OPINION -

Re: July 28 com­men­tary “Will GOP swal­low the tea party?”

Most tea party mem­bers are older, ma­ture and ed­u­cated enough to re­al­ize what this nation stands for be­cause they work or have worked in the past, not ex­isted off wel­fare.

We re­spect the Con­sti­tu­tion and laws of this nation. In Novem­ber, we will have a choice. We sim­ply refuse to sup­port rad­i­cal changes in our form of govern­ment, deficit spend­ing, govern­ment health care, re­dis­tri­bu­tion of wealth, il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion and other is­sues that Democrats want to force upon us.

We love Amer­ica just the way it is and are an­gry about what govern­ment changes are do­ing to states and our nation. The pur­pose of the tea party is to re­mind Amer­i­cans about what it means to be an Amer­i­can. Amer­i­cans need to be­come more re­spon­si­ble, not more de­pen­dent on govern­ment ser­vices.
