Why Is The Tea Party On A Roll? – JC Watts

Posted on October 4, 2010


Consider these numbing statistics:

More than 6,000 men and women will be married today and each of their children will be saddled with a $30,000 share of the runaway national debt.

More than 15 million men and women will not be finding a job today.

More than 2,900 families will have their homes foreclosed today.

Some 300,000 illegal aliens will sneak across our borders, underscoring the human, arms and drug trafficking that is destroying the quality of life in Arizona, California and a growing number of other states.

At the same time, during the past two years, an ever-expanding federal government has taken over everything from General Motors to the health-care system. And the United States appears weaker on the international stage than at any time since we lost the Vietnam War. As I have said in this column before, our allies don’t trust us and our enemies no longer fear us.

No wonder that a tea party movement motivated by patriotism and adherence to the Constitution, as well as opposition to record high tax-and-spend policies, sprang up to challenge incumbent candidates of both parties who are presiding over the decline of our country.
