On April 15, 2010 there was a tea party rally held at the Eureka,CA courthouse. As we drove by their little gathering ( about 30 or 40. Not the hundreds as the local newspaper would have us believe) I shouted to them "SUPPORT THE TROOPS.... PAY YOUR TAXES !!!! Some of them gave me the finger and yelled back at me. My wife remarked that it was odd that there were police officers present to protect these people and direct traffic.... After all their taxes pay for the police. Maybe they should have been left to fend for themselves??!!
Government is a creation of people and as such it is flawed. There is always room for improvement and reform. At least President Obama and the Democratic Party are engaging us in debate and in reform. I applaud and support my President and his party for moving forward.
