Tea party needed
Regarding the letter “Good riddance, tea party” (Jan. 9 and TribLIVE.com): Be careful what you wish for.
From my view, the tea party was a grass-roots movement working to keep our country free. The big-money donors came later and will go over to the perceived winning side. The tea-party folks want our country to remain free and true to the Constitution as envisioned by our Founders.
It seems the majority of the voters have spoken in favor of bigger and bigger government. We are on the road to progressivism/socialism/communism/dictatorship. Call it whatever you wish. God save a free America.

This letter stands as an example as to how ignorant the "tea party" and its followers. If we were truly "on the road to progressivism/socialism/communism/dictatorship", then your beloved tea party would have had all its members arrested a long time ago. In fact voices like that of Trib its self would have been shut down. Fox News -- off the air! Rush Limbaugh -- silenced. Yet is that same right wing media and the "tea party" who actively seek a dictatorship of the masses and use every lie and trick possible to shut down opposition. You do a grave injustice to those who truly suffered under communism in Eastern Europe, to those who continue to suffer under it in North Korea, when you cry out that America has anything close to that because it doesn't follow the right-wing line. Any citizen of Pyonyang. Hanoi, Havana, and even Beijing would die (and are dying) to achieve the freedoms that you enjoy in the USA.
