I have never felt really scared that our country was is danger from its government, but now I wonder. The Tea Party seems ignorant of the effect of their actions on the U.S. and the disastrous global impression their actions in delaying the budget have caused.
The report of the financial disaster that their actions have caused is shocking. Hopefully U.S. citizens will vote differently in the next election having seen how this right wing of the Republican Party has functioned -- radically imprudent and ignorant of the far reaching effect of their actions.
I actually think that voters may consider the Democratic Party now, leaving the Tea Party, Palin, and Bachmann behind in the dust of extremism.
