To all,
To Holly,
Thank you for the compliment. But liken to many Americans today, you are wrong… you do have a “say so” in what both Congress and the President do. It may seem minuscule, but write or email your congressperson and tell them how you feel. Remember they work for you!

To Michael,
I would concede that our elected officials were voted into office. But the problem that many Americans have is that the people, that they elected, are acting in ways in which they said they would not act. They are taking actions that are not the will of the people. A person may agree that AIG needed to be “stimulated” to save the economy. But the same stimulus bill included $355 million dollars to prevent STD’s. Most people would agree they didn’t “vote” for that.

To Anonymouse,
Get over it!

To Chris and Kathy,
You both spoke about the Constitution. You are right, it was written to keep government in control. Keep in mind that at the time of the constitution, many Colonists were defining a society where they controlled the government and not the contrary.
Chris, you are right, the federal government does have limited control. But President Obama does as well; he still must answer to Congress who ultimately answers to us- the People.

To Gary,
I feel your passion and I don’t care about the spell check (I am spelling chellanged as well). To my earlier point with Holly: you can do something. Write to your congressperson; email them; call them; vote! We are what we make of ourselves- be your own voice.

To Mr. Kinney,
Kudos to you and the 8,000 people in Fresno.

To Mr. Crosnoe,
I am humbled. Please let me thank you, for defending our right to express (all of our) concerns and discontent with our elected official.

To Darly,
It’s not to say that Fox News is not biased. But as I sat and watched Geraldo Rivera and Sean Hannity argue last night it emphasized the feeling of diversity that they offer. This same, lack of, diversity was felt as I scanned CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, and PBS searching for any type of coverage of the Anti-Tax Tea Party. What coverage they did have and references to “tea-bagging” were inappropriate and showed their biasness.

To Byron,
You point is understood and stagnant. I offer you this: since the war began has there been another attack on the United States? Check you economic books- historically speaking war generally will stimulate an economy. During that time (Iraq War) taxpayers were having their money used to protect our country; not protect Edward M. Liddy’s retirement.

To Ben,
The Tax Day Tea Party’s were a culmination of Americans to raise questions and speak their mind. It was ironic to see themedia portrayal of “patriotism” for anti-war protestors a few short years ago; and see the “radical right-wing” protestors of today.

To Gettaclue,
Your comments are without substance and hardly justify a response. But for your clarification I am middle class too. I work full time; go to school full time; and treasure what little time I have with my 23-month-old daughter. I am not a “wall street suck up” nor would I recognize any of the “BS” they would push at me. I have a retirement that seems to be unaffected by these economic challenges that America faces (luckily). I wake up everyday and go to work. I do my job, come home and do homework, and play with the light of life- until it’s time for her to go to bed. I am blessed that God has given me all these things.
But I am saavy enough to know what a “deficit” is. I understand that if you borrow money from someone- you have to pay it back. I also understand that if I make bad financial decision that I am the one that looses. But what bothers me the most is that the government is investing and rewarding bad investments with money that I pay for. And when my money is gone, they will get the money from my daughter. She will be paying for things and be responsible for actions that she was never even aware of.
The actions of the Tea Parties had nothing to do with upper-class not wanting to pay higher taxes. Trust me I was there with thousands of middle-class people.

The Tea Parties were in defense of my daughter’s future; and thousands of young Americans like her.
