Emily Mills’ Insight Into Madison Tea Party Great Read

April 16, 2009

Many reasons to read Emily Mills today as she has a nice write-up on the tea party at the Statehouse yesterday.   She also snapped some pictures that are well…pretty indicative of what lives under rocks.

    Deke: I like reading your stuff. We link to it quite a bit at the Bar and Grill because you present an alternative viewpoint that’s thought provoking. But I totally disagree with your assessment of those people who took the time to protest yesterday.

    The sad thing is it seems that there are some on the left are ‘for the people’ as long as the people agree with their policies.

    The fact is this: the vast majority of people who attended these tea parties (and I would have too if it weren’t for work commitments) are decent, hard working people who are sick and tired of seeing their tax dollars go into a black hole. They’re sick and tired of seeing rich, fat cat elitists profit from government while they work and work just to make ends meet. They’re sick and tired of both Democrats and Republicans caring more about taking care of their special interest groups than they are taking care of the real problems this country faces.

    Again, a great start would be if Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Steny Hoyer, John Boehner, and Mitch McConnell resigned from leadership and give the position to someone ‘less entrenched’ in the Washington D.C. Beltway ruling elite. Democrats? Republicans? Doesn’t matter. They’re both equally complicit in this mess. They’re both responsible.

    The sad thing is that we may need more ‘tea parties’ before the message finally penetrates the Beltway haze.
