An Oct. 30 article in the Herald about Florida Sen. Bill Nelson referred to the tea party as “hyper-partisanship.” I strongly take exception to that quote.
I don’t know if the author is partisan or uninformed. The results of the 2010 election indicate that the electorate (Democrats, Republicans, independents) are not happy with their government’s leadership.
I am a constitutionalist and believe in limited federal government (Amendments 9 and 10).
I personally believe the decremental diluting of following our constitutional principles is directly responsible for our country’s problems and our diminished standing globally (I hope all parties support this conjecture, sans communists).
Our Constitution has not failed us, we the voters have failed by continuing to elect representatives who fail to uphold our country’s principles (Constitution).
All of us are better served talking to each other, informing each other, discussing our disagreements and staying friends. Do not let Washington, the media or politicians divide us.
A friend recently said, “You can’t be a beacon if your light doesn’t shine”. Let’s all of us shine for America.
