In response to Gene Watson's letter “Valid comparison?” : How can anyone compare the tea party to the Taliban without so much as an inkling of what the tea party is really about?

Basing opinions on just the spew that emanates from the likes of MSNBC, the Huffington Post and most mainstream media shows how shallow and uninformed Mr. Watson really is. The tea party is more concerned with the overreach of our federal government, not with forcing any sort of religious ideology on the American people — quite a difference from the Taliban.

As for the accusation of resisting any sort of compromise, please take a hard look at the Democrats in the Senate, Mr. Watson. Slinging mud will only soil you, my friend.
