The Republican Party and the Tea Party make government out to be the enemy. Do they know that the police, fireman, teachers, first responders, military, and State and Federal workers who work hard every day in offices around the country are helping every single American every single day? Do they know that it is government that enforces our product safety laws, laws protecting our environment, and workplace safety rules? Are they aware when they get a prescription filled at the pharmacy that our government acts to ensure that the drug companies maintain certain standards? Do they know that toy manufacturers are not allowed to make toys that are toxic and can harm children because our government will not permit this?
The Tea Party and Republican Party want an America where only the strong survive. If they want any government at all it’s government by the rich and powerful for the rich and powerful. If you care about the poor, the elderly, the sick, the middle class, and children the choice in 2012 is crystal clear.
