We, tax paying citizens are angry at the liberal elected officials who have no fiscal responsibility and are leading our country to socialism--the Obama way.
Millions of hard-working American citizens who pay their bills, send in their income taxes, maintain their homes and repay their mortgage loans see their federal and state governments reward those who do not or who are not legal US citizens.
It is the anger of small town and Middle American folks who have never been to Manhattan, who put their savings in a community bank and borrow from a local credit union, who watch Washington lawmakers and presidents of both parties hand billions in taxpayer bailouts to the reckless Wall Street titans who brought down the economy in 2008.
It is the fury of the voiceless, the powerless, the ordinary nobodies of Flyover Country who are ridiculed, preached to, satirized and insulted by the Celebrity Loudmouths of the two Left Coasts, the Jon Stewarts and Keith Olbermanns, the Paul Krugmans and their ilk. Even President Obama has said that the Tea Party individuals are just right-wing nuts.
The Democrats in Congress are not listening to the average American tax payer. They are willfully ignoring public opinion and the verdict of recent elections in passing a huge new health care entitlement when the existing entitlements of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid are already going broke. Now, they are talking about a VAT to pay for all of their reckless policies. More taxes and more federal government control.
We feel frustrated and helpless as we watch politicians and the courts stretch and bend the Constitution -- finding "rights" not enumerated, powers never granted, meanings unimagined -- believe that their country is being redefined without their consent.
Most of us who are "the angry" are not out marching in the streets, waving signs or shouting into bullhorns. We are not smashing windows or phoning death threats to politicians. We are simply waking up angry in the morning, and going to bed angry at night. We are waiting for the November elections to make the necessary changes in Congress and in state elections.
We are tired of being told we are too stupid to understand the country's complex problems, too rooted in the past to find solutions, too selfish to share what we have worked for with everyone else who wants it. We are tired of politicians who take our money and our rights, while buying off voters with our money.
We are angry and we are not going to take the liberal socialist policies any more!
