Nonsequitur: Un-American Government

June 8, 2013

Becky Gerritson of the Wetumpka, Alabama Tea Party, testified before the House Ways and Means Committee earlier this week. She went right to the core of the “IRS scandal.”

This was a willful act of intimidation to discourage a point of view. What the government did to our little group in Wetumka, Ala., was un-American. It isn’t a matter of firing or arresting individuals. The individuals who sought to intimidate us were acting as they thought they should in a government culture that has little respect for its citizens.

Many of the agents and agencies of the federal government do not understand that they are servants of the people. They think they are our masters and they are mistaken. I am not interested in scoring political points. I want to protect and preserve the America that I grew up in, the American that people cross oceans and risk their lives to become part of, and I am terrified that it is slipping away.
