Tea Party power: an all-ages show

Meet Bonnie Johnson - who said she’s in her late 70s and a Tea Partier - and wants to help “take back our country.” She’s one of the reasons the Tea Party is flexing so much muscle this year.

“Tea Party Set to Win Enough Races for Wide Influence,” reported The New York Times, which earlier this year released a poll that 29 percent of self-identified Tea Party respondents are over age 65.

I met this lovely lady at the debate in Colorado Springs last month between Republican Ken Buck and U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo. Here’s what she had to say…

“I love politics. I’m very interested in this race because I am so worried about my country. Trying to take it back, I’m a Tea Party and a 9-12er. And I think that we have to…This is probably the most important election of my lifetime. And I’ve never missed a vote since I was 18.”

“I am worried that we have to take back our country.”

“We can’t sustain this. Our country will go bankrupt. We’re losing, already losing, our status, our power. And if America falls, so [does] the world. Everybody looks to us…We have to get back our power and our sovereignty. I’m really concerned, so I’m voting. I’m waving flags arounds. I have signs, bumper stickers, everything I can do.”
