I cannot tell you how disappointed I am about the abandonment of the principals that won you the supremacy in both the House and Senate in 1994. Since that time, the Republican Party has moved toward an ever larger tent to be more inclusive. This is a grave mistake. Political parties are about ideologies and not about identity politics. That is the path that the Marxist Democrats seek and it is a loser. Let them have it. The Republican Party is about time tested and real principals. These principals were what founded our nation and secured our people for more than 200 years and I see no reason to abandon them now.
The continued growth of government into industry, banking, and now the medical field is doomed to end in failure. Nothing the Federal government has done outside of their Constitutional mandates has ever been successful. Medicare and Social Security are headed for bankruptcy and now those in Washington are seeking to socialize medicine despite worldwide failures for those governments that actually did it. If that were not bad enough, there are also communists at the highest halls of power and regulating our economy. How did this happen?
It happened because United States Senators like Olympia Snowe allowed it to happen in order to be popular with the left. The Republican Party once represented the best hopes and ideals of man and in the years during the Bush administration you have failed us. Our choice in the last election was Karl Marx and Karl Marx lite. You failed to support a real conservative in New York and instead supported Dede Scosafava who is essentially a Democrat and proved it when she realized that she couldn’t win. That you wonder why the American people are angry is laughable.
Our children will be born with the yoke of financial slavery around their neck for untold future generations because you did not stand up for what is right and allowed the government to grow exponentially and spending to skyrocket by bailing out everybody and their brother. The American people have always been willing to do the heavy lifting. That is why we are willing to shed our blood for the freedom of others overseas, but you have even failed to protect them from the sickness of the left. Four Navy SEALS are going to stand trial for doing their duty. That is a travesty and a sad indicator of where our values are and where they are heading.
Perhaps it is I that is an anachronism as I was raised by my grandparents as children were raised in the 1940’s, but if so then I believe that a return to those values would do the nation some good. Additionally, I also believe that a return to genuine conservatism, the kind practiced by Goldwater and Reagan, would also do the nation some good. The Democrats must be stopped before they destroy the American ideals of rugged individualism, self sacrifice, and a respect for honor and duty. Unfortunately, corruption and dereliction of your duty have only enabled them to accomplish their insidious ends. I implore you to get back into the fight and defend what is good from those who would destroy it. If not, the Party of Lincoln will have utterly failed to serve the American people and you may as well call yourselves Democrats.
