GOP needs to take responsibility

By Staff | Jul 21, 2010

To the editor,

People are talking about how the Republicans might do in the elections this November. I say they can’t win because the Republican party no longer exists. Those who claim to be the Republicans aren’t. The party is dead. Only the name survives.

This is not the party of Abraham Lincoln. Ronald Reagan was far too liberal for today’s Republicans. The party is owned by corporate puppets that apologize to British Petroleum. The party is led by Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin. Republicans are only concerned about the deficit when they are out of power and spend like mad when they are in power.

Republicans need to take responsibility. They need to stand for something more than empty slogans. There are no ideas there anymore. It’s all about their own self interest. So Republicans cannot possibly win because Republicans no longer exist.
