Letter: Stop the United Socialist States of America

ENID, Okla. — Regarding Gene Lyons’ column, June 12, 2014:

The tea party had nothing to do with the Cliven Bundy incident. They neither planned it nor approved of it. That is not to say that we approved of the tactics of the United States Bureau of Land Management invading private property and rustling cattle.

I acknowledge the fact that there are nutjobs, both right wing and left wing, but ordinary citizens are what the tea party is. We believe in constitutional, limited government, the God-given rights enumerated by the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

Actually, we of the tea party are middle of the road, neither right nor left wing. The leftists such as Gene Lyons have labeled us, belittled us and tried to crush us, but they have failed and will continue to fail.

The reason for the uprisings is that the leftist presidents that are elected each nibble away at our rights and expand the government into areas not allowed by the Constitution. This has been going on for a hundred years, and it is time it is stopped before this wonderful nation becomes the United Socialist States of America.

Only a darned fool would want a violent confrontation, but we will not give up our constitutional rights to anyone at any time.

Franklin D. Doty,

Enid
