Letter: Both parties equally to blame

Phillip Mikes’ “Republicans are crooks; more Democrats needed” (Letters, Friday) would be laughable if wasn’t so obvious he’s consumed the liberal Kool-Aid. Democrats and Republicans collectively are to blame for the state of our Republic each in their own way.

The much disparaged “tea party” Republicans appear to be the only rational representatives clearly able to see the imminent economic collapse cascading our way and there’s probably no stopping it now. The Federal Reserve pyramid is going to make Bernie Madoff look like Walt Disney. We happily continue to print essentially worthless dollars by the billions while China produces and buys all the gold they can as well as purchase fixed assets in North America while the charade persists and they can get something for all the borrowed money we give them.
