Now, don't take this as an attack on the members of the Tea Party. I believe, they, or you depending on who is reading this, have good intentions. I know people in the Tea Party. They love America. They know something is wrong with it right now.

Yes, Dear Tea Partier, the government wastes some money. Yes, there are some grifters on the dole who take a few tens of thousands a year out of the system.

Really though, what they steal is a fly spec compared to the bigger dollars being stolen by a much smaller group.

What we need is to realize the problems of this country start at the top of the finanical industry, a few dozen huge corporations and a group of mantra filled politicians on both sides who are frankly on the take.
