On the Right Side: Attend Tea Parties to find truth

What happened March 21 was the ultimate of big-government arrogance. Congress passed a health bill that a large majority of Americans didn't want.

Democrats were bought, threatened and bribed to sell their principles to the devil. They felt they had a choice between being scared of Pelosi, Reid and Obama, or facing the wrath of their constituents. Boy, did they make the wrong choice.

Watch the attempts the Dems make, spinning how they voted. This law is just one of many nightmarish examples of what happens and will happen again when radical liberals seize control of power.

Speaking of spinning, I was watching a newscast where a Democrat congressman was trying to explain away a recent poll where Pelosi's favorable rating was 11 percent and Harry Reid's was 8 percent. The politician actually said the reason that these numbers were so low was because they took so long to get the bill passed!

There was a letter to the editor a while back that displayed either ignorance or the lowest level of behavior by attempting to distort and demean the Tea Party movement. After a letter like this it is even more important than ever for independent-thinking individuals to attend a Tea Party event and see for yourself what this movement is really all about.

The left will stoop to any level in attempting to distort the facts. I attended three events last year and hope to attend more this year.

There were no loaded guns, no words of racism, nor any of the other things the writer claimed to have experienced. The good, honest people I was with would not have tolerated such things and would have asked such individuals to leave.

I think the writer was confusing herself, instead remembering the vulgar activity that took place when her kind protested President Bush's policies.

  • Schreibman tops Chris Gibson on women's issues

    As the time to vote draws near, we need to remember how money can run politics more than we can. Raising funds is a prominent (if not the dominant) task of getting elected. Raising issues is also crucial, but those efforts are subject to distortion and fear-mongering.

  • Romney focuses on self; Obama emphasizes unity

    Mitt Romney criticizes President Obama for saying a person's success is rooted in his community, and is not all his alone. Romney belittles this with his belief in individual initiative. He is better at the put-down than the push-up.

  • Romney shows little regard for common man

    The Republicans in Congress have voted over and over, 33 times, redundantly and uselessly, to rescind what they call Obamacare.

  • Scouts' gay ban creates problem where none exists

    The Boy Scouts of America's "emphatic reaffirmation" of its vow to exclude any and all homosexuals from its hallowed ranks is ill-considered and pathetic, especially in view of its having reviewed the matter for two years.
