I am surprised at the things that bug Steve Bouser about the tea party (April 20).
Why go into a definition of “party”? I’m sure he knows the name from the famous Boston Tea Party. A Revolutionary War outfit is clearly a reminder of the war for independence, our Constitution, our Declaration of Independence and our inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, for which our forefathers shed their blood.
Tea party citizens work to restore a federal government limited by the Constitution, to restore the rights and liberties of the Constitution. We are willing to recognize that the founders were a remarkable group of people, led by divine providence. As a newspaperman, Bouser must recognize that the Revolutionary War outfit gains media attention for our cause.
I do not remember saying that we represent the American people. Many Americans, not just tea party members, dislike Obamacare. He asks why Republican tea party members didn’t cry out over the overspending by Bush? We are very fortunate that Obama won the election. If McCain had won, we would have continued the slow movement toward a welfare state of government control and suppressed rights of the individual. The election of Obama and his swift actions woke us up. He is correct that we are working toward another American Resolution, a peaceful revolution to restore America to its founding principles and ideals.
