To the editor:

Mr. Everett, in your column last Friday (“Does Tea Party have staying power?”), you said the following: “Tea party members are generally anti-abortion, pro-gun, anti-gay, creationists and right-wing, Bible thumping Christians.” How can you generalize a group about which you know very little?

You forgot to mention that they feel that they are “taxed enough already” and that government is way too intrusive, bloated and out of control on spending. You also forgot to mention the fact that this country is headed for bankruptcy unless some changes are made immediately.

How about the fact that our president surrounds himself with radicals like Andy Stearn, Van Jones, Richard Trumpka, Cass Sunstien and even George Soros. Doesn’t that bother you?

How many Tea Party members do you know? What is “ill-defined” about wanting a smaller, more efficient, Constitution-based federal government? Is it possible to be a Christian without being called a Bible-thumper? I think so. I am a God-fearing, independent, pro-Second Amendment, right-sided, fiscally conservative constitutionalist, and if that makes me a “Tea Partier” then I am proud of it.

I guess that, judging from your own words, someone might generalize you as a pro-abortion, anti-gun, pro-gay evolutionist and left-wing atheist. I ask you, now, would that be fair? You need to do some homework and find out what the conservative movement is all about.
