I would like to ask a simple favor of all those who are candidates or delegates in any upcoming caucus, primary or general elections. Please let everyone know ahead of time if you are tea party members. This will give your supporters a simple choice to exclude everyone else, and it will give people like myself, who consider the tea party nothing more than a minority group of radical extremists, a simple choice to vote for, and donate to, anyone but you.
It should cut down on speeches and make donating a clear choice for both sides. It will also give me the chance to write to my representatives and point a clear finger of fault, with no ambiguity, when I tell them, "The fault for this mess lies with you and your tea party ilk."
