Tea partiesUnlike those who see the movement as being only about taxes, or about the disaffected Republicans among us, or about neo-nazis, or about sinister corporate forces at work behind the scenes to ruin that which Obama is attempting to build, or about skinheads, or about rednecks, the Daily Telegraph understands that the Tea Party revolution is about regular American citizens rallying against our reckless government being out of touch with the people and in opposition to our politicial leaders doing things that will ultimately destroy our country.
Bluefield Daily Telegraph editorial
Tens of thousands of protesters staged anti-tax tea parties around the country last week — including gatherings in Charleston and Beckley — to express their frustration over taxes, government spending, federal bailouts and the bad economy in general.
For the most part, the rallies were peaceful — and welcomed. It is always good to see such public participation. More importantly, it is good to know that citizens are taking a keen interest in the actions of the federal government.
Many are concerned — and rightfully concerned — by what appears to be a new era of unprecedented government spending and corporate bailouts. [link]
It goes beyond taxes. It's about our very way of life.
