What’s happening in our country today sickens me to the core. I am 68 years old, retired and live a comfortable life. I’m neither liberal nor conservative. I like to think of myself as progressive. In short, I live the American Dream.
I now see this dream for millions of Americans threatened by terrorists of a different sort, not the thugs responsible for 9/11, but the tea party, a radical fringe government now in control of Congress calling for nothing less than elimination of all government.
Let me ask a couple of questions. Do they want Social Security and Medicare when they reach 65? Do they want our national wonders displayed in national parks to flourish? Do they want a decent education for their children? Do they want medical research to continue?
A different kind of tea party helped to form this great republic. Do not let another kind destroy it.
