Why No Democrats?



Jerry Foster, president of the Northern Gila County Democratic Club, seems to proudly claim that there are no Democrats affiliated with the Tea Party. My question is: Why not?

The Payson Tea Party is not affiliated with any political party and is committed to practicing our civic duty as delineated by the U.S. Constitution, the supreme law of the land.

The Payson Tea Party strives to educate, inform and encourage all citizens to become involved in the political process focusing on fiscal responsibility, less spending and fewer regulations at local, county, state and federal levels. That is the goal of the Payson Tea Party.

So it begs the question, why no Democrats?

The Payson Tea Party has guest speakers and/or great interaction each week on local, county, state and federal issues. A great way to find out what is really going on in this great country of ours and how we can effect change for the better in America! “We the People” have been silent for too long.

I've attended Payson area Tea Party meetings in the past and have talked to many of the people that were in attendance. Some of them told me that they "used to be Democrats" or that they "used to be Republicans," but at present they weren't really sure what party they best fit into.

What they DID know was that they felt the present direction of America was on a dangerous, destructive course and wanted to change it.

It shocks me to think that these "good Democrats" like Jerry Foster not only approve of the path that America is on, but they seek to accelerate it, under the direction of their beloved Barrack Hussein Obama.

If you find that thought repugnant, you'd probably enjoy attending a Payson area tea party meeting.

Why no Dems in the Tea Baggers? That's like asking why there are no blacks in the KKK. Their IQ is way too high.

Yep... wanting politicians to follow the Constitution, to stop borrowing money from the ChiComs and to stop spending money that our great, great great grandchildren will have to pay back really makes you an imbecile, right Teddy?

Liberalism truly is a mental disease.

Dan, Ted doesn't care about any of that or anyone else. He wants what is his and he wants it all now. Free medical care for him and his wife. Free housing with no property taxes. Let the rich people pay for it all. According to him, the Government owes them and he shouldn't have to pay for it. He could care less if China takes over as long as he gets his. He forgot that Obama took away $600 Billion from Medicare to help fund his bogus Health Care Plan so his family would have health insurance that they will never ever see!
