Douglas W. Sherfy's Oct. 22 letter says the tea party is being attacked without facts to support. Fact, Americans voted Democrat the last two presidential elections as well as the Senate elections. Conservatives only hold regional pockets of power in our country in the House of Representatives. Fact, we live in a democracy where the majority vote rules.
The tea party does not hold a majority. They will continue to hold our country hostage if they do not get their way. The tea party is party first, and American second. They are causing more damage to American business, American interests and the American way of life than the global terrorist networks are. Vote the tea party out, and restore a reasonable Republican Party that puts America first before party interests.
Disagreements are part of the American way of life, but shutting down America or threatening to if you don't get your way is anti-democratic and anti-American.
