Watching the above video makes E.D. Kain clamor for a local tea party:
Chuck should not fall into the trap that so many other Tea Partiers have fallen into: national politics. This isn’t to say that Chuck shouldn’t be at all interested in national politics plenty of the decisions made in Washington will effect his ability to start and grow a business. However, as this video illustrates, many of the real day-to-day problems facing Americans stem from local political shenanigans and from local regulations put in place by local special interest groups. Miami’s ludicrous business-licensing is a homegrown problem. You can’t blame Barack Obama or George W. Bush for the labyrinthine process of getting a business off the ground. It’s time that the Tea Parties began to focus on that instead of always looking to Washington to place their blame or their hope.
