Letter: Republican Party Has Drifted Too Far To The Right

Mitt Romney is the end result of a once-relevant GOP gone haywire. All of the Republicans who are lamenting their choice of Romney as the party’s standard-bearer have no one to blame but themselves.

In 2010, due to the apathy of Democratic voters, the Republican faithful voted into Congress the rabble known as the Tea Party, which at once held the entire country hostage in order to advance a political agenda bordering on domestic terrorism. As a result, the choices offered in the Republican primary were a collection of escapees from an insane asylum. The party itself is being led by the rants of Rush Limbaugh and dictated by a nobody named Grover Norquist.

The majority of the electorate — those people who actually determine who will lead the country — are moderate and rational. The problem with the new version of the Republican Party is the absence of anyone who possesses moderation or rationality.

Look in the mirror, Republicans. You are your own worst enemies.

  1. If Obama is reelected it will be a disaster of monumental proportions.

    Here is what one CEO had to say:

    The email continues, saying, “If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, as our current President plans, I will have no choice but to reduce the size of this company. Rather than grow this company I will be forced to cut back. This means fewer jobs, less benefits and certainly less opportunity for everyone.”

    When asked if Siegel saw how the email could be intimidating to employees, he replied “That’s not so and I didn’t try to intimidate anybody. I have lived through the last four years of the Obama administration. It hasn’t been fun.”

    Siegel said the worst part was laying off 5,000 employees in 2009. But he hasn’t necessarily hit rock bottom either. He said his profits have remained the same and he resumed construction on his 90,000 square foot mansion, which was a back drop of a documentary about his life called “The Queen of Versailles.”

  2. Say what you will about the GOP, it is by far the lesser of political evils in America today. This Democrat party is certainly not the party that my grandfather was so proud to support. If the GOP has been influenced by our Constitution-supporting Tea Party, in contrast the Dems have become the Godless party of socialistic propaganda, out to convince the less fortunate they can’t survive without the government’s help and control, creating false expectations of future security to insure their reelection, while overburdening hard-working, self respecting Americans. Disgusting! Perhaps you missed the DNC and the Presidential debate?
