TEA PARTY: Freedom fighters, not racists

| April 7, 2010 5:24 AM

The left is demonizing the Tea Partiers as racists to deflect the real purpose of this grass roots, working, middle class movement. It’s quite simple. Read their signs. They are not against Obama because he’s black, but rather because of his policies — BIG GOVT takeovers, BIG DEBT THAT WILL BANKRUPT THE NATION, RAISE TAXES ON EVERYONE to pay for entitlements, fostering SOCIALISM that will make America a mediocre welfare nation, and, most recently, implementing a health care system that devalues life and restricts access to proper medical care.

The Tea Party wants the government to uphold the Constitution, not circumvent it. They want Congress to pass laws based on the merits of the legislation and will of their constituencies, not for special interest groups or by corruption, collusion, tricks, and bribery. The Tea Party is sending a urgent message that our individual liberties and freedom of choice are in grave danger of slipping away, perhaps forever. The average American doesn’t want to be ruled by elitists and so-called “experts” who think they know how we should lead our lives. More people should embrace the Tea Party message which is to preserve life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for ALL Americans!

What’s racist about that?!
