Why I’m not a Tea Partier

It was one thing when they shouted ‘Run Sarah, Run”.

But this is really all I needed to know this isn’t my movement.

At the Gilbert protest, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio delivered the keynote speech.

Arpaio touched on a number of issues, including his chain gangs and his problems with the federal government.

If Joe Arpaio is part of any movement, I’m not.  Limiting the rights of people to come into this country has nothing to do with limiting the size and scope of government.  In fact, it’s the opposite.  If you think you need permission from the government to work, you aren’t really interested in limiting the power of government.

Edit:  And apparently I’m not the only one.
