To the Editor,
Once again, we’ve been treated to a personal, anti-Democrat rant by Stan Gudmundson, without hearing anything about what his Republican Party actually stands for. It used to be fiscal conservatism, a strong military, a well-kept infrastructure.
But according to Gudmundson, its really about anti-women’s rights, anti-LGBTQ, anti-immigrant, anti-Native American, pro-fossil fuels, pro-guns, pro-unrestrained police powers, anti-schools, anti-peoples right to choose as their recreational drug one which is far less dangerous and lethal than alcohol and tobacco, and anti-state spending on the people’s priorities.
Not to mention, the Republican Party is the victim of the self-serving actions and words of the criminal Donald Trump. No sane person will vote to put him back in office, and everyone riding on his coattails deserves to lose their offices and positions, as well.
Remember the letter I wrote you a while back, requesting that only positive and reasoned statements be accepted for publication?
It’s the election year now. Time to solicit statements that tend to unify, rather than repetitive denigration of the beliefs and politics of the majority by those who have no better ideas to present.
P.S. Hooray for Siri Corson and her plea for sanity!
