Sandy Thackeray ("Tea party should break from traditional GOP," Forum, Oct.25) believes that America needs a third party based on "standing for something." She suggests that the tea party is that party.
I agree that the current elected officials of our two-party system are not working well together. They stand for different views with a common core: greed. An additional party will not ensure solutions, especially the tea party. The last month has proven such.
The tea party is not even a real political party. It is more of a Halloween party. It is a group of extreme right wingers in costume claiming to be "patriots" with nothing more than a radical personal agenda, not America's welfare in mind.
