Maybe we should at least show more sympathy for people in the Tea Party.
These are people whose way of life, and the values of that way of life, is disappearing. And there's no way out for them. They are, in the main, older people with a high school degree who have seen their wages decline. Many of them have seen their jobs eliminated. And there's no way out.
Yes, we need to defeat the Tea Party. Yes, we need to move ahead. But maybe along the way we could show a little more sympathy for the people whose way of life is being destroyed by the Internet.
