Rob Rogers' Oct. 22 editorial cartoon depicted the Tea Party, a group of people who live by the code of our Constitution and want a smaller government and a free-market system, in a smelly garbage can of supposedly scorched-earth politics. However, the left-leaning liberal Democrats should be shown in a garbage can instead, because they now own the bad economic policies that our government is following.
We have high unemployment, more people using food stamps, more poverty and now so-called affordable health care, which is exactly the opposite. It is unaffordable and gives you less health care. They are responsible for scorching our free-market system.
I hope citizens are paying attention and go to the polls to get rid of these socialist-leaning Democrats who keep growing the government beyond a size that can be managed and paid for without the government going into massive, unmanageable trillions of dollars of debt. This is my hope for our country. I hope we go back to being the best country in the world.
