LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Legion invites public to Memorial Day program

(Continued)

Over the course of this campaign we have watched Dan Patrick and some of his supporters claim that he was the only “tea party candidate.”

We believe that a candidate that has even one tea party endorsement and believes in the core principles of the tea party movement (chiefly, limited government, fiscal responsibility, free markets, less taxes, less spending and less government intrusion into our lives) could also be considered “tea party.” Heck, we wish they ALL would! We acknowledge that more than one candidate in a race can be tea party, just as more than one candidate can be pro-life.

We are not a political party, nor are we required to only support candidates that the media, any one group or coalition may deem as the “tea party candidate.” We were and still are free to choose our own candidates to support, endorse and volunteer for in the elections.

The open letter to the media and the general public below was crafted by us and approved by us as individuals. We do not claim to speak for anyone but ourselves.

Thank you,

Toby Marie Walker, Waco, and Stacey McMahan, Upshur County
