You can't believe them! The Tea Partiers and the right-wing conservatives shout about getting government off our backs. Yet they want an amendment to the state constitution to define marriage, a church institution. They want to force voters to show photo identification to vote. How many voter frauds have they identified? Or prosecuted? Do they believe all liberal voters are voting twice? The election clerk has checked my identity more than 60 times.

And what about privatizing Medicare? Does anyone realize Medicare is making thousands of senior citizens capable of remaining in their homes rather than being confined to nursing homes at a savings of $5,000 to $7,000 a month, each? No!

Don't believe them. They are interested only in control and are abusing their new power. They need to get back to their real job of setting a realistic budget.
