LETTER TO THE EDITOR

 

mail-box-full-colorDear Sir: 

Responding to Micki Wendt’s September effort:

Point One The ‘Bush’ deficit. Our current record deficit came from the Democratic Congress seated in January 2007, President Obama’s huge payoffs to his Democratic constituency which gave no positive economic impact and to Barney Franks activities prior to 2007 subverting Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac credit and securitization standards. He improperly pressured banks to increase mortgage origination to buy more Democratic votes.

Point Two The ‘TP and Republican relationship’. The Tea Party will endorse Republican and Democratic primary candidates who adhere to the basic conservative ideals of over 70% of Americans. It will never ‘merge’ with any party.

Point Three The Military-Industrial Complex (referenced by President Eisenhower) is essential to the security of the United States and is peopled with America’s best, brightest and most honorable people performing better than other countries industry. President Eisenhower warned against the tendency of some people and companies to behave wrongly without constant vigilance by the Government and a free press utilizing investigative journalism.

Point Four ‘Afghan and Iraq view’. The TP supports a strong national defense with a vigorous response to Terrorism and the subversion of the American system forcing a new form of government or culture.

Point Five The TP is simply not Racist. It has renounced racism continuously yet people spread this disinformation for their own ends. The TP rally’s have been unique for their absence of improper conduct and there have been almost no documented examples of placards or incidents. No Video evidence of this has been produced. Such misconduct has been documented of the far left.

Point Six ‘TP Federal spending priorities’. Any political party in power guided by TP principals would downsize Government greatly and would focus on programs to strengthen the private sector, particularly middle market companies and exporters. What the public would get would be an administration answerable to an awakened and vigilant public not believing in an elitist Government minority telling us what to do and how to live our lives.

Point Seven Comparing slave labor over a hundred years ago (when the south had about 5% slave labor) to labor today ignores all facts and reality. The average compensation of organized labor today, especially Federal Employees, is well above the general publics, cannot be fired and has very low productivity. Many Unions are slaves to their officers who strip them of their earnings through special assessments and provide for super seniority for themselves. The closed shop is the pen to which the workers are confined.

Point Eight Suggesting the founding fathers and the constitution are out of date in the examples of modern society you name is inaccurate. The genius of the founding fathers is that these documents are still fresh for these challenges. Lacking today are character, ethics, morality, respect and fear of a higher power.

Point Nine Sealing our boarders against illegal entrance, drugs and weapons of mass destruction needs no explanation - not doing so does.

I am not officially empowered to respond for Tea Party members (non radical, non violent Americans) but I attend their meetings and apply some experience and wisdom.

Gordon Ferrie,
