We should all seek tea party ideals

I read the Oct. 21 David Ignatius column, "How the GOP can recover", and in his opinion, the problem is the Tea Party. When "liberal leaning" (according to Wikipedia) columnists want to help RINO's loosen the hold the tea party has in the GOP, I believe the tea party has become quite the threat to our bloated, intrusive, out-of-control government. The tea party is fighting for "the people" who are supposed to be "the government" -- as in "for the people, by the people," We all should be part of the tea party and get "our" house back in order!
