I am one of the many retired old turkeys that call the Rim Country home.
Still I lean a little more to the liberal side than most. In going to the Tea Party, the message I hear is we must balance the budget and the liberals spend too much and mortgage our children’s future. In my opinion they are right. Still conservatives and, actually all of us, need to ask ourselves the following question:
Do we want to balance the budget so badly that we will vote for the man who will cut our Social Security benefits and Medicare? It’s going to be tough to stand up for what we believe in.
The sad fact is there is no other way to get our fiscal house in order and we’re all going to hurt.
