Tea Party, Taxes and Terror
In addition to the right to vote, contemporary tea partiers have the right to refuse government benefits, decline Social Security Benefits, refuse to congregate in parks that are funded and maintained by the government. They can make huge donations to Black Water. Decline to travel on highways. The list goes on and on. It should be noted that current tax rates are the lowest they have been in 50 years. And current American tax rates are the lowest among industrialized countries. Nobody likes to pay taxes, but the freedom and quality of life that we as Americans have, has a price. No democracy without responsibility.
The fringe element of the tea party is another matter. An armed march on the anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing by a militant group, is bordering on sedition. Anyone that doesn't view the actions of McVeigh as "right there" with the bombing of the twin towers has got a screw loose. Janet Napolitano may want to institute the previous administration's ingenious color code warning system to protect the American public from this threat of domestic terrorism.
It's bedtime for Bonzo and the insanity in American Politics.
