Armstrong Williams hits on many important points about the Tea Party and the course it needs to take to implement its agenda in his column “Who rules the ‘tea party’?” (Nation, Monday).

He states that we need a “common enemy” to galvanize the members. Well, we have one, and it’s our elected officials, both Democratic and Republican. The fact is that our leadership has strayed from the values of mainstream America. The Tea Party is a swift kick in the pants to all politicians on both sides.

We can’t lay all the blame at the feet of the GOP. Conservatives have been forced into the closet because of the media portraying our values as “hateful.” The liberal media brand any speech with which they disagree as evil. This has brought us too many career political candidates who are Republicans in name only. The message we bring is that no politician is safe. Stand with us or get out of the way.
