I believe you thought you were still in New York or New Jersey in the neighborhoods your father held court in during the heyday of the labor unions, but you were not. You see Mr. Hoffa, this is 2011 and Americans have watched their Country sold down the river by both parties for decades. It was only by the grace of God that it all imploded and Americans for the very first time in almost 100 years got to see exactly what all of those trillions of tax dollars they had given to the government over decades off the sweat of their brow as they got up to go to work each and every day. I am sure you and your union brethren thought when President John F Kennedy with the signing of an Executive Order giving all federal employees the right to unionize that you would never again have to struggle for the billions you have spent on Democrats. 2008 and the implosion of the greedy politicians and the greedy bankers and the greedy unions in the form of destruction of every company they had invaded, collapsed and when the dust clears, State by State and finally the Federal Government union employees will be diminished and or destroyed, because you quite like the Democrats and the media wing of the Democrat Party have bullied your way into semi-socializing this Country and We The People of the United States of America who love their Country more then themselves are willing to suffer to see you all gone. It will take a couple more elections, but it is going to be a smaller government with no unions running roughshod over their employers, which in case you have forgotten are We The People.
The American public in the form of the TEA Party Movement are women, men, blacks and whites, they are grandmothers and granddaughters, they are grandfathers and grandsons, they are the Middle Class of the United States of America, whom each and every Congress and President speaks to and then does nothing for. When multi-billionaires like Warren Buffet speaks to the “rich” giving more, he doesn’t mean himself and people like him, he means Americans who make 250K and more, which are employers and a two-person working family. In some areas of the Country that might seem like a lot of money, but in others, such as in the suburbs of Washington, DC, 250K pays for a couple of employees and the employers rent, office supplies and his family, there is no extra beyond what the Federal Government is already taking.
Those of us in the Middle Class are well aware that the Federal Government cannot continue spending as it is and we are well aware of the debt that we and our children and grandchildren now owe and we are also aware that if the Democrats got their way, there would be more taxes and more spending. The problem is not the taxes, it is the spending. Why should we work hard everyday of our lives until we are to tired to work anymore for organizations like Planned Parenthood and National Public Radio and for groups like Hamas in the Palestinian territory to get our money? The answer is they shouldn’t and we shouldn’t have to pay another dime more then the Federal Government already takes.
I see that a lot of people in DC are saying that Americans are tired of the fighting, that is a LIE, we are tired of the getting along that put us in this debt. We sent TEA Party backed candidates to DC to stop the spending, not to get along and give even more borrowed Chinese dollars to everyone but the Middle Class. So from this woman, mother, TEA Party Patriot, I say to you, you want a war? you think you can scare us? we won’t be scared and we will fight you for the very heart and soul of this Country.
