ANOTHER VIEW FROM THE TEA PARTY: INTELLIGENT FACTION (# 4 in the Satirical Series Emails from the Tea Party)

Contrary to the email you’ve received to date from various other less well-informed members of our great Tea Party, my wife and I are both educated, well-informed university graduates, (me; Oral Roberts University Law School, she; Liberty University Law School).

As attorneys, highly educated people, and students of the Constitution of these United States, we can both vouchsafe that there is nothing in it that says “citizens shall receive free healthcare”, or “an education”, nor is there anything in said document that says that “the government shall regulate food safety”, and, the last time I checked the Constitution (yesterday evening in bed after bedtime prayers), I saw nothing, not one single word which stated……that “there should be Federal Laws governing minimum wage”, or “child labor”, or “Medicare”, and/or “environmental protection” – whatever that implies.

None of these items are mentioned in our Original Constitution as drawn up by some very smart men in 1787. And to top it all off, as that the great American patriot Rick Perry says in his must-read book “Fed Up”, there is the greatest “illegal Ponzi Scheme” of them all, Social Security, which, as it’s name indicates is out-and-out  Socialism! That “Bernie” thing! And, which as Perry says, “We have been forced to accept for more than 70 years!”

Also, neither my good wife nor I see anything in the original Constitution that says “gays should have the same rights as everyone else.” Really? Seriously? These programs are nothing more than dangerous Socialistic Bernie Sanders ideas which all vigilant patriotic people must, and should, guard against, lest they destroy our beloved country. We don’t need them, and we will repeal them when Donald Trump or Ted Cruz are elected.

And do not even get us started on this global-warming-climate-change lunacy!

So please, please vote, the quality of our lives depends on it.
