Save the GOP from Tea Party

As a registered Independent, I have no allegiance to
any political party. I believe the two major parties are just two sides of the same coin.So, I took an invitation to attend a Tea Party meeting.
What, in the name of sweet Jesus, is wrong with these people?
I have never seen so many people gathered in one place who were more confused, misinformed and manipulated than these well-meaning people.

Unfortunately, their irrational enthusiasm prevents them from hearing any opposing viewpoint.
When one man in attendance challenged what was being said, the entire group of about 100 people turned, in unison, to
shout the man down until he left.
I thought I was at a Nazi youth rally.
It was, actually, very scary to see adults acting like a cult.

As for the content of information presented, one could simply watch Fox News Network and get the same misinformation.
What has happened to the Republican Party is very tragic and dangerous.
I was a Republican when it was truly the Grand Old Party:the party of true, intelligent,constructive, courageous
conservatives whowere not up for sale.
I left the GOP when they sacrificed their integrity and elected an actor called Ronald Reagan to be their front man, while placing the former director of the CIA,
George Bush as vice president.
The party has never been the same since.  Today, it has been hijacked by multi-national corporate interest disguised as a grassroots movement for the middle class called the Tea Party.

We have witnessed honest, competent Republican Congresspeople resign rather than sacrifice their political ethics and support un-American policy that hurts the middle-class economy to
satisfy the greed of the 1 percent.

I encourage true Conservatives, who are conservationist by definition, strict constitutionalist by policy, who support science over superstition and protect individual freedoms, to wakeup and save their party from the corrupting influences that have taken the GOP in the wrong direction.

Democrats and GOP are two sides of the same coin

As a registered independent, I have no allegiance to any political

these well-meaning people.

Unfortunately, their irrational enthusiasm prevents them from hearing any opposing viewpoint.
 When one man in attendance challenged what was being said, the entire group of about 200 people shouted the man down
until he left.

As for the content of information presented, one could simply watch Fox News and get the same misinformation.

What has happened to the Republican Party is very tragic and dangerous. I was a Republican
when it was truly the Grand Old Party: the party of true, intelligent, constructive, courageous conservatives
who were not up for sale. I left the GOP when its members sacrificed their integrity and elected an actor named Ronald Reagan
to be their front man, while placing the former director of the CIA, George Bush Sr., as vice president.
The party has never been the same since. It’s been hijacked by multi-national corporate interest disguised as a grassroots movement for the middle class called the tea party. We have witnessed honest,

    I think it sucks that the L A Newsgroup Editors would change the Letters that people send in just to fit their view point to accommodate their dwindling subscription rates. This would be one of the reasons why that happens.
