Actions of tea party perceived as sedition

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

The tea party should review the Seditious Conspiracy Act:

“If two or more persons in any state or territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.”

Again, the Affordable Care Act is the law of the land and upheld by the Supreme Court. Perhaps a tea party wing at Leavenworth would bring them to reality.
