Tom Tancredo has said, "Senators and Congressmen should not be allowed to vote."

Does Tancredo believe in representative democracy? Apparently not. He does seem to believe in supporting the wealthy. He supported and continues to support the mega-corporations at every opportunity.

Closer to home, one prominent Sonoita businessman was reported by Robert E. Kimball in the Bulletin to have said that he attended the Sonoita Tea Party event because he was frustrated with the high business taxes he had to pay. Considering that the average total state and federal corporate taxes back in the 1950's was 90% and businesses were thriving makes the 39% of today seem rather insignificant.

Some Tea Party folks have a big concern about a non-problem....the idea of income re-distribution. I have sympathy for their fears which were fueled by the corporation/bank world's lies. But,Tea Partiersdon't have enough money to worry about this lie. The mega-rich who are running the government and steal from us aren't going to take money from you and give it to me. They take money from you and they take money from me.

We all must face the fact that there is no Democratic Party. There is no Republican Party. There is only "The One Party", the party of GREED whichcarries out the will of the mega-corporations and banks and will soon rule the world.

We all must face the fact that it is not the poor who causedthe recession. The greedypsychopathic rich caused the recession. We can't save our country and ourselves from ruin by blaming the poor for being poor. We can't blame theundocumented aliens for being hungry, homeless and poor.Their problems wereintentionally caused by the greedy rich through NAFTA.The North American Free Trade Agreement of 1994 which was conceived and promoted by the rich elites destroyed the family farms in Mexico and put an additional 3.5 million (3,500,000) farmers into poverty and roughly 20 million undocumented aliens heading north toward our border.

There are no Brownie Points from the mega-rich for any of the ordinary Tea Partiers who support them. There are no Brownie Points from the mega-rich for the uninvolved and silent liberals.

The mega-rich elites don't care about any of us.

They don't share.

They think that wealth and power is their right because they think that they are superior.

By our misguided Tea Parties and by our inaction are we proving them right?
