Letter: Return to our country's Constitution

December 1, 2013 

The American colonies fought for independence from an oppressive and tyrannical government. Some men gave their lives and their fortunes for freedom.

America's founders founded this country on the principles of fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government and free markets.

The tea party holds the same viewpoint as the founders. So what's the problem with the tea party?

The problem isn't the tea party but liberal Democrats, liberal Republicans, a liberal president and other liberals who have ignored the Constitution or changed the meaning of the Constitution to further their desires for the direction of this country.

These liberals would rather have government as master (love King George mentality), rather than the servant, which means losing their freedoms.

Mr. Bensky, I am so grateful that we have men like you who are concerned about the citizenship of Ted Cruz because he might seek the office of president (Letters, Nov. 5). I am sure you expressed the same concern in regard to the citizenship of Mr. Obama when he was campaigning for president. I must have overlooked your letter of concern as to Obama's citizenship! We need more men like you to safeguard the Constitution in such a non-partisan way!
