Government shutdown could backfire on tea party

Re "Debt crisis likely to postpone billions in aid" (Page A1, Oct. 14): We, a Republican and a Democrat, believe that no president, no matter the political party, should negotiate at the point of a gun. Congressman and tea party adherent Tom McClintock is our representative in the 4th District and should take note of such unified opinion (see especially recent polls).

The tea party, in its anti-democratic approach to governance, may inadvertently end up unifying the rest of the country against it.
