Out of this group, some are claiming to be born-again Christians. It seems these types of born-again Christians are takers rather than givers; helping the poor and needy does not seem to be any part of their agenda. However, giving tax breaks to the wealthy while demonizing the Affordable Care Act has been on the front and center of the Tea Party’s efforts to push back on the majority voice in this country.
They behave as if they should punish the voters that voted President Obama in for a second term; that punishment came in the forms of sequestration, the government shutdown and the threat not to raise the debt ceiling. Not only is this behavior destroying the heart of the Republican Party, it could have pushed the government into total chaos.
It is my notion that the Tea Party (The Selfish Party) may have faulty wiring that lacks feelings for others of lesser means; if that is so, sensible Republicans need to rise up with courage to bring our great nation back to that time when we believed in reasonable compromise.
