John, another issue that the Tea Party must engage in : vigorously OPPOSE amnesty for illegal aliens ! If the 20 million illegal aliens get a pathway to legal residence and then sponsor thier next of kin, we will be over run by third world immigrants who will vote republicans out of office ! Not only will they vote republicans out of office, they will swell the welfare roles ! The latest study indicates that among hispanic immigrants 47% are on government subsidies ! This is staggering ! I encourage every reader of this forum to join NumbersUSA at their website . It costs nothing and you will be making your voice heard in the halls of congress against the destruction of our country.
