Too little government

I suppose we have more than our fair share of tea party members here in the SCV. But I’ve been wondering why they blame the government for all of the country’s troubles.

If they looked honestly at what ails America, they’d find that it’s not too much government that’s at fault, but rather too little.
Lost jobs? Who sent them overseas. The government? No, greedy corporations did.

The Wall Street mess that brought our financial system to its knees? Caused not by too little government but by lack of proper government regulation.

The Gulf oil spill? Lack of government regulation. Mine cave-ins? Poisoned food? Unsafe autos and drugs? Ditto.

I agree we spend too much — certainly on wars we don’t need to fight and on the largest military in the world (who made us policeman of the globe anyway?) Awake, tea party folk. Take a hard look at where our problems lie, and turn your guns on the wealthy and corporate elite — you know, the ones who really run America in the 21st century and want even more of the pie at the expense of the vanishing middle class.

So we should vote the very same type of people who caused this giant disaster back into office for another go-round? Sure.
That’ll fix everything, won’t it?
