Voters toss give this country to the Tea Party, a recipe for disaster
Tuesday’s elections show that when people are scared about the future, they swing to the far right. In the case of the Tea Party, they are swinging to people whose economic policies resemble that of Herbert Hoover’s, which failed to stop the great depression. Their actions towards those they disagree with resemble the Brownshirts and Blackshirts of Europe in the 1930s.
The attraction to this group seems to be old fashion selfishness, racism, xenophobia and Scapegoating. Their movement caters to the lowest instincts people have. They claim they want their country back as if government should be theirs and theirs alone. They beat up those who come to protest their rallies. They portray the president as a communist and talk about the country going “socialist,” which is a sick joke. They want to throw the unemployed, elderly and sick out into the streets to starve and die to keep THEIR taxes down.
They claim they worry about the next generation having to pay off the national debt and yet they don’t care if the next generation can breathe clean air or adapt to a changing climate do to global warming, which they refuse to acknowledge.
They now run the House of Representatives. They didn’t get the Senate. Most likely we are in for two years of gridlock or the Democrats caving into people who are out to wreck this country.
This is all a recipe for national disaster, but this is what US citizens voted for, so they will get this agenda whether they like it or not. The people have spoken and it is time for them to reap their just dessert.
