I was at the tea party and all said was true. It never has and will never do any good to email, write or call any of our so called leaders because they have already proven that they will not do anything to help this country or it's people. They will only do something if it is a benifit to them. They are just gutless wonders and that's it. All the jerks see is an endless pipeline of money from us, the taxpayer. We have no input as what is done with it.

You know, when you dont have the will to manage your house and budget your are just an idiot.

Their policy is to give it to evry Tom and Harry that comes along and holds out their hand or says give me some too and I want have to pay it back either Hell, let them go down the tube for as I care.

More and more people just dont care about or want to have any thing to do with our so called leaders or this country. It once was a good one, but now it sucks and is the laughing stock country all over the world. We are called a nation with no confidence. For people that still don't this make you want to just thro-up. Enough said at this time othere than the continued loss of our rights as a people.

PS: To all our leaders, go have glass plate placed into your mid-section so you can see out. You then can see all the problems you are causing.
