Patriot games


I don’t think I’ve read any letters to the editor questioning the patriotism of the far right-wing tea party movement or their philosophy.

Until now.

Let me begin.

When one of our political party’s base is willing, and may I add, more than eager to vote against raising the debt ceiling and thereby risking the full faith and credit rating of their own nation, the United States of America, or they vote against providing disaster relief for their fellow Americans mired in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, or vote to allow the use of weapons of war in our society, then I wonder if Osama Bin Laden were still alive and breathing the same air the rest of us breathe, would he be thinking maybe Nikita Khrushchev had it right 50 some years ago?

Maybe they will “bury themselves.”
