Liberals, unions, legislators all to blame

Once again, Gary Horton is at us with his socialistic slight of hand ("Tea Partiers: Freedom isn't actually free," April 15). According to the piece, we should belly up to the bar and pay all the taxes and fees that a bunch of befuddled politicians can dream up.

Well, I for one am not satisfied with the way our tax money is being spent. Weak-minded governors in search of union votes have given away the farm and our heritage.

Union contracts that are bloated and out of line have been signed again and again. The unions love the process and never address the fairness or the right of it to the taxpayer.

I love to hear the case made about corporate greed. There are some instances, to be sure. The high stakes of big business are ego-driven and on occasion someone will lose their way, but they are just pikers compared to our state unions.

Their approach is to take as much money from the people as they can.

The phrase, "How does this compare to the private sector?" has never crossed their minds. The case can be made that illegals are a burden, and they certainly are, but nothing is ever done to curtail this out-of-control spending.

Every year or so some liberal will come up with another scheme to provide these illegals with more benefits because they believe that someday these same illegals will vote.

Our founders thought of community service as just that: service. Long ago, some villain figured out it was really about power and wealth.

The founders saw politicians as part-time servants of the people, knowing that idle hands are the devil's workshop.

We would all profit from a part-time legislature. Keep them home were they can hear from their constituents and truly be the voice of people.
