Have you ever wondered what would happen to America if we let the Tea Party Republicans take control of this country?
I think we would see America become a third world country very quickly. They have talked over and over again about how much they don't like government and they don't want any tax increases.
If the government never gets any tax increases it will just dwindle and die after a while.
We would see Medicare, Medicaid, Amtrak, roads, dams, government buildings, parks, police, fire departments, teachers, airports, bus service and so on just fall apart, disappear or get so expensive many couldn't afford to use these services any more. We would also see unemployment rise which would mean people paying less or no taxes.
I always hear people say I don't have kids and I don't want to pay for schools. Some people say I don't take the train so why should I help keep it running. If we all chip into the pot we all end up with a much better country. The farmers get help when they need it and storm victims get help also when nature strikes a blow. It's called helping each other. Cities get transportation, farmers get help in droughts and so on.
I think the Tea Party ideas are just downright selfish. We need to fix our income tax system so we all pay a fair share on what we earn and can afford. This means that the rich have to pay their fair share and can't hide money out of the country.
Mr. Romney this mean you should prove to us that you're not hiding untaxed income in some island bank or Swiss account. It's time you come clean.
