I have read many times how the old white men who are the base of the Republican Party are dying off and this should give us hope for the future. I do not have faith in this theory; the number of men in their 40s and 50s that support tea party goals and efforts continues to shock me.
Just last night I had the pleasure of conversing with two men in this age group. Both are supporters of Republicans and share their thoughts and feelings freely. Of course one has to give them a break; they did grow up on a steady diet of Rush Limbaugh.
One of the men said “Our government is too big.” Unfortunately I had my coat on and was heading for the door when this comment was made; a missed opportunity for sure.
Had he said this earlier in the evening I would have asked him some of these questions.
What part of the government would you like to shrink?
Would you shrink the WAR department?
Would you shrink the FDA?
Would you shrink the FAA?
Would you shrink the SEC?
Would you shrink the HHS?
These are just a few of the departments our government spends money on to protect us from both invading forces and ourselves.
Come now all you young people and join us in getting a government that protects the people from the corporations rather than the current one that is protecting the corporations from the people.
