Mom always used to say "you're known by the company you keep." And at this point since the Tea Party is probably deservedly taking credit for the Rand Paul election we have a chain of connections when Rand Paul seems to believe that individuals who own businesses stand above the position of all men being created equal.
That is a truly difficult, if not impossible position for anyone who believes in the rights and freedoms of all men, women and children, not only in our country, but in the world.
So what happens now? Are the Independents who are not signed on with the TEA party going to paint all us conservatives with the same broad brush? I'm talking about the Independents needed to win an election.
You should know how good the Democrats are at taking something like this and true or not, repeating and repeating and repeating it until those undecideds believe it. We can personalize that practice in Michigan because we have seen Mark Brewer do it over and over again.
All I am asking is that every time you get the chance, you should recognize the good that the TEA party is doing, how welcome they are to fiscal conservatism and all the things Republicans hold dear, but that there may be a few candidates who agree with some or most of our platform, but are out of sync in a couple of areas.
Please do not think I am criticizing the TEA party. I just want to point out what to expect from the Democrats and their lies and innuendos. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.
Have a great weekend-
Remember our fallen heroes--
and God Bless all of you......
