Tea party capable of sabotage

The Mankato Free Press

---- — The “Taliban tea party” has shown everyone it will resort to whatever means to promote its ideology.

They really don’t care which business, which family is destroyed. They attempt to inform you it is for your own good. If that doesn’t work, they will tell you it was someone else’s idea.

They must believe people are really stupid. Wait, they did get elected so there might be some truth in that statement.

I am a firm believer in democracy — and compromising. That is how democracy is supposed to work, right? There has never been an organization I have ever belonged to or would ever belong to that did not operate on those principles.

Their leaders are willing to resort to financial ruin for individuals, institutions, businesses and our country. Republican Sen. Texas Ted Cruz from Texas has said by whatever means. This obviously includes their willingness to resort to extortion recently.

Now that we know the degree of their integrity to the American people, the question is are they willing to engage in sabotage of a computer system?
