tea party in the desert

"people who have swimming pools don't need state parks.  if you buy your books at borders, you don't need libraries.  if your kids are in private school, you don't need K-12.  the people [in arizona], or at least the ones who vote, don't see the need for government."

-arizona public servant on the tea party's influence on politics there, harper's magazine, july 2010
